    I know there was a woman who tried to compete on a men's arena football team, which went about as well as you would expect, but she wasn't transgender.

    Are you trying to advance the nutty notion that men and women are DIFFERENT?
    Every problem is the result of a previous solution.

    I suspect that win streak would grind to a sudden halt if she ever competed against men.

    Several years ago there was a series of programs on PBS hosted by Alan Alda that dealt with what it meant to be human (broadly speaking. One episode mentioned a bunch of studies (and repeated some of them in front of the camera) that revealed that even in infancy, long before society could possibly impress gender roles or expectations on them, boys and girls are profoundly different. Or as Alda said (paraphrasing), something that parents who had raised both boys and girls already knew.

    Now the Associated Press is lecturing people for being "resentful" of the "great gains" made by transgender athletes. The article only briefly touches on and then immediately downplays the fact that biological men who claim to be women are able to dominate in women's sports.

    There are feminists who fight it... they're typically called TERFs (Trans Exclusive Radical Feminists), which many of them take as a slur, and written off.

    She [sic] recently finished second in the 55-meter dash at the state open indoor track championships. The winner, Terry Miller of Bloomfield High, is also transgender and set a girls state indoor record of 6.95 seconds. Yearwood finished in 7.01 seconds and the third-place competitor, who is not transgender, finished in 7.23 seconds.
    All I can say is: what a crock. People have chosen to live a lie rather than face reality.

    MM, here is a place where we agree completely.This is nothing less than absolute idiocy.
