    They will be supportive to appear liberal and accepting.

    Until they lose. Then they will bitch and moan to anyone who will listen but in a subversive way. They won't come out and say the obvious. They will drop coy hints like "I think the rules committee needs to examine things and that's all I will say about that."

    1 - any guy who would change his whole appearance to a woman and deal with that shit isn't really gonna do it just for a dopey javelin medal. So in that sense it doesn't bother me.


    2 - The true PC Olympic crime is that blade runner murderer guy who won a medal - straight up performance enhancement. That was legalized cheating that was allowed out of pity.

    I wondered if the new transfaggot military members have to conform to the physical requirements of the gender they're pretending to be or the gender their DNA says they are.

    It's not right. Women and men are different creatures. Even Nicole Bass was not physically stronger than a comparable man. You are what your DNA says you are.

    He only won medals in the Paralympics. He was a non factor in the traditional games.

    They should put the artificial hormones on the banned substances list. Didn't the russians and chinks get in trouble for testoseroneing up their females in the past?

    The top man in many sports is better than the top woman. Id be pissed if, as a woman, i was top of my sport and had someone who had it in their DNA to be male wanted to say they were the best female

    I'm sure that's emblematic of the thinking shared by IOC officials.

    In some ways though, I feel this sort of attitude is almost more demeaning to the persons involved than if the officials were to simply maintain their historic standards. It's almost as if they're saying, you guys are so pathetic, we don't care if you provide a sideshow for our event (one that we'll be sure to exploit for political purposes).

    I'm pretty sure transgenders aren't allowed to compete as the opposite sex in the olympics....this story is either fake or these competitors will be tossed.

    Ronda Rousey caught no end of shit when she said she was against allowing trans people to fight against women, since she felt anyone who'd gone through puberty as a male, with all its accompanying firehose blasts of testosterone, would have developed muscular/skeletal advantages over women, even after taking the hormones to try transitioning.

    i agree. it just doesn't bother me.

    when they dropped historic standards of no pro athletes,
    when they put in famous people over more skilled non-famous ones,
    when they use garbage sponsors,
    when they ruin communities,

    ..... i see it for the profit-driven circus it is.

    I was flipping around the channels and ended up watching college bowling the other day(women's) and was thinking if any sport should include both sexes its that one, I think it's more the "hitting the pocket" correct to get a strike rather than the speed and power. I mean we have all seen kids roll a slow ball and get a strike.
    Darts too I guess, unless the girls want to argue our aim and eyes are better.

    I watched a special (don't remember the channel) about a transgender mma fighter. He was a dude who is now a chick and he was beating the shit out of everyone

    That's because he's a man.
