A great debate is kicking America in the crotch demanding it calls her Ma’am. What do we do about trans athletes? Some say we should be inclusive. Others say men are men, women are women, and shooting yourself up with hormones is cheating. Tennis legend Martina Navratilova, who’s also openly lesbian, has now weighed in. Hint: having hormones your opponent does not is cheating. This isn’t the first time Martina has dipped her toes in intersectional infested waters. She agreed to spend some time to educate herself more. Which she did. Still hates transgender athletes competing with ladies.
“Simply reducing hormone levels — the prescription most sports have adopted — does not solve the problem. A man builds up muscle and bone density, as well as a greater number of oxygen-carrying red blood cells, from childhood. Training increases the discrepancy. Indeed, if a male were to change gender in such a way as to eliminate any accumulated advantage, he would have to begin hormone treatment before puberty. For me, that is unthinkable.”
This shouldn’t be hard if you’re a feminist. Trans athletes are stealing opportunities from actual girls, and doing so at the blessing of woke liberals, if not the state. These days, trannies rank #1 on the left’s Pound for Pound most marginalized list. Women usually come down at #4. Dropping down further if you’re one of those notorious “white” women. But it’s still unfair. Isn’t it the left who’s always yammering on about fairness?
Here’s what needs to happen next: more athletes, male and female alike, need to weigh in, need to say “men playing with women is cheating.” Or maybe “men who suck at being men can’t drop down and play and beat girls. It’s not not the girls’ fault if they’re creepy losers who suck.” If we’re really wishing.
