Default Dude dominates chicks in volleyball

Transgender volleyball player debuts in Brazil's top league, sets sights on Tokyo Olympics

Quote:
And it will be sure to court controversy. As the world adapts to a more accepting culture of transgender people, sports remain among the most volatile venues for acceptance. Many don’t like the idea of someone who was born a man being allowed to compete with women, believing that it imparts an unfair advantage.
Former Brazilian volleyball player Ana Paula Henkel holds that belief.
“It is not a matter of prejudice, it is physiology,” she tweeted. “Most players don’t think it is fair for transsexuals to play against women. And it is not. (Abreu’s) body was built with testosterone all life long.”

One part of me wants to point out that woman constantly want to play on the same field as men, the other part of me wonders how this situation can turn into anything but a PR nightmare.

If they lose then they will call them overrated, if they win then it's because they were born a man and have an unfair strength advantage.

Progressive causes pitted against each other are my favorite thing.

Part of the probablem is men are physically stronger. The world's strongest man will always be stronger than the world's strongest woman.

Transexuals are women in name only. Put Catelyn Jenner in an unmarked grace, wait 200 years, dig up the body, and it would be identified as a male body. I understand they have mental or genetic identification issues, but physically their bodies are the sex they were born.

Unless it's on the US women's soccer team, most of them would school our men's team.

You realize that Brazil is one of the bigger areas(I use the word area to sub in for country since not all countries are heavily involved in trans-gendered surgery) for trans-gendered women? Surgery is dirt cheap there(in comparison to the US).

There is a lot of money on the table for some mediocre professional tennis bro that wants to pretend he's a girl. That, and an epic reaction by McEnroe.

Jenner might not even be decomposed in 200 years, just sayin'. Lots of fakey bits.

Wants to play for the olympics.


If the shemale has to take drugs to pull off being a girl then that is violation right there. What will stop any guy from doing this?

Oh wow... the OMANE showing it's bigot colors as usual. Nothing says "I am man insecure about my own sexuality" like bashing and making fun. Stay classy losers!

This does raise an interesting question. With women joining men's sports, it'd be easy to test for whatever testosterone or hormones they'd be taking to shift them over. But what about the other direction? Is there actual language about looking at your genitals to qualify? Could a biological male with no surgeries, but who simply identifies as female just come compete?

There are a number of people who don't want gender to mean anything. Let's say you want to dissolve sports divided by gender and mix both together. All you'd get is a complete vanishing of most women in most sports except where women are dominant like figure skating, gymnastics, synchronized swimming. And even then, for how long?
