Texas House Passes Bill To Bar Transgender Athletes From Women’s Sports

Texas is has lost its mind and is on an authoritarian warpath.

The bill, which largely takes aim at the ability of trans women and girls to participate in women’s sports, still needs final approval from the Texas Senate, but that body has already approved similar legislation, and passage there is considered likely.

But as in other states, supporters produced no evidence that trans athletes are actually posing a risk to girls’ participation or ability to compete in scholastic sports. Before Thursday’s vote, Texas Republicans also said they did not know how many transgender athletes compete in scholastic sports across the state.

There was a recent in-depth study done in England and the results were what sane people everywhere expected: men have an enormous athletic edge over women, even after years of hormones. Let them compete on their own teams or they can fuck right off and take OP with them.

Trans athletes need to be forbidden from competing in track and field,weight lifting,cycling and wrestling.

However, they should be encouraged to compete in floor exercises,synchronized swimming, gymnastics and especially beach volley ball bot only if they conform to the Olympic sanctioned uniform of a bra and athletic thong.

If you mean the muscle mass study, they showed that trans women lost 5% of their muscle mass after switching to hormones for transition.

They talk about how limited their study was and their 3-year followup with more data isn't due for years yet.

Richard Raskin never even won a regional tennis championship against men. Then he transitioned to become Renée Richards and ranked twentieth worldwide at the age of forty-four.

There are tons of stories such as this: mediocre male athletes suddenly finding success when they start competing against women. Off the top of my head I can think of CeCe Telfer, Fallon Fox, Laurel Hubbard and Rachel McKinnon, but there are many more. Yet strangely enough, this isn't happening the other way around: female athletes aren't transitioning and beating men. Why do you think that is, OP?

What if there were a particularly tall high school basketball player, who is biologically male--much taller than the average high school player.

R22 - would you say able-bodied athletes should be allowed to compete in the Paralympics? By your logic, the advantages an able-bodied basketball player has are no different from those of an unusually tall one.

Sport isn't segregated by height, so there would be no reason the basketball player in your example couldn't compete. There ARE different categories for men and women, so men should compete against men and women should compete against women. If someone thinks this is unfair and wants different sport categories for short, tall and medium-height athletes, they are welcome to campaign for them.

Boxing is a sport that goes by weight-class so that you don’t have the biggest brute crushing all opponents. I’m thinking there are many ways around this. Of course, the most obvious is to create a separate class for transgendered persons. Unfortunately, this does not meet the hidden, implicit, secretive agenda of the transgendered to forcibly have others comply to their special “medical” requirements. (I.e. delusion).

Your comment reveals how little you know or care about women’s sports and undermines the nationwide popularity of 1980s-early 2000s athletes like Mary Lou Retton, Michelle Kwan, Flo Jo, Jackie Joyner-Kersee, Mia Hamm, Steffi Graff, Chris Evert, Martina Navratilova, Monica Seles, Nancy Kerrigan, Tara Lipinski, Bonnie Blair, etc. Your false statement is something common among Republicans and right leaning media… as other in this thread have said, this is the one thing Democrats get wrong and the one thing Republicans get right; sports are separated by sex for a reason.

Forcing female athletes to compete against male athletes is a very, very bad look for the transgender lobby. It’s becoming a hot button issue that makes trans activists look dismissive, even hostile, toward women and girls.

Reasonable people ALL across the political spectrum can agree that female athletes deserve a fair and level playing ground. Why don’t you?

Sports may not matter to you, but they do to a lot of people. When records are increasingly being broken by male athletes who “identify” as women or a girl misses out on making the team because a boy took her place? People will start calling bullshit.

For you, R115, and for the one or two others in this thread who say women should just STFU because trans women in female sports is a non-issue? I urge you to take a look at this thread from Twitter and give it a little more thought:

Are you serious, R115? Even pee-wee football and high school wrestling are divided by weight class because kids could get hurt by kids who are bigger and stronger.

Below is a link to last months MMA fight between Alana McLaughlin & Celine Provost, here are some of the comments:

[quote]The natural woman is definitely more skilled. The trans just has the natural power of a man and that played a big part in that win.

[quote]The skill level was proof that the man obviously has an advantage. The female fighter was better in every aspect of this fight and that wasn’t enough to get a win. Biology is a hell of a thing.

[quote]Anyone who knows anything about MMA fighting will immediately realize what an obviously mediocre fighter this McLaughlin actually is. The female opponent, Celine Provost, was clearly the technically superior combatant, landing multiple on point punches, the deleterious effects of which were very clearly observable. However, it has to be said no matter how hard or how many damaging blows were landed, the obvious physiological advantages and differences of a 33 year old man's body are such that withstanding such an attack from a BIOLOGICAL WOMAN would not be too difficult to endure. Had McLaughlin's opponent been a man with similarly high skills, McLaughlin would not have seen the end of the first round. Any thoughtful, fair minded individual I'm sure will agree, such a grossly unfair match in supposedly professional ranks of fighters should cease forthwith and finally such fundamentally dangerous pairings will not end well for biologically female combatants. God help women's sport. Most sincerely James, West Yorks, United Kingdom.

During the last few years we have spent a lot of time having a conversation and making changes to broaden the opportunities for equity and inclusion for women. As wrong as I might be, I can't help but think it's something of a slap in the face when we try to broaden the definition of what a female is. As I've said previously, I'm supportive of trans rights. Where I'm having problems, and I don't think I'm alone, is this desire to redefine simple biology. I don't care if someone, born male, feels that he's a woman. That's cool, be a woman. But you're not female. Males can't have babies. Females don't produce sperm. There are biological differences between males and females and some of those differences impact strength, speed, and basic conditioning. It just is.

This was done by winning over public opinion and much acceptance and by use of various legal strategies (court rulings, referendum in some countries, etc.) It was not revolutionary, it was evolutionary and very bourgeois. What trans are doing is largely forgoing that path and using various means of silencing their opponents and pushing through a major change, namely in the almost universal perception of two genders based on sex characteristics. As this has entailed conflict with women's rights and at least perceived (and in some cases real, witness the Virginia school rape) threats to children, it is unraveling. People simply will not be forced to accept the more extreme versions.

Thing is, the trans agenda is more of a threat to gay rights now than conservatives because it may cause our acceptance to also unravel by our association with such a problematic agenda.

What I would love to see for these politicians - and Stonewall - to give actual figures. For example, if 25% of trans people commit suicide - as David Lammy informs us, then what is that in actual numbers? Because we never see actual stats of trans suicides or even newspaper reports of individual suicides. If David Lammy can state that 1 in 4 trans people are killing themselves then surely he knows what that is in numerical terms which means he can also give us the figure for how many trans people there are in total in the UK.

Lol r259, you obviously haven't bothered to read what you're arguing against.

The substack article is about the way in which suicide figures are manipulated and invented by politicians in the UK - guided by Stonewall - in order to argue for why we have to to use terms such as "people with cervixes" instead of just the word "women".

Any attempt to discuss trans policy - which now covers school toilets, women's healthcare, academic freedom, the very meaning of the English language and a whole host of other areas - with opposition politicians in the UK is met with a response along the lines of "trans people are the most vulnerable group in society, 41% of them contemplate suicide". It's on fucking repeat, you can never get past that.

This is horseshit they have been fed by Stonewall. Politicians have abdicated their job of devising policy to serve the needs of the British people to a shady lobby group that does not even represent the vast majority of the people (LGB) it claims to.

The German website on Transgender Day of Remembrance is run by the Heinrich Böll Foundation, which is associated with the Green party and has received German government and EU funds. We can therefore trust that these are accurate figures. This is what the website says:

[quote]In the past 12 months, 350 trans and gender-diverse people were reported killed globally.

[quote]Of the reported killings worldwide, sex workers make up the majority of victims.

[quote]A total of 3664 trans and gender-diverse people were reported killed in 75 countries between January 2008 and September 2020.

[quote]Migrants make up a high number of reported murders in Europe. And, of the reported killings of trans and gender-diverse people whose profession was known, worldwide, 62 per cent were sex workers.

Yes, every single murder of anybody is a tragedy, but 350 murders in 12 months globally is a miniscule number. Moreover, the vast majority are sex workers and migrants. Which is terrible, but these are people who are already living precarious lives, and it's life on the edge of society that makes them vulnerable, not being trans.

Yet, we have politicians in the UK and other countries using these spurious figures for suicides and deaths and this unproven claim that trans people are the most vulnerable group in society to convince us that biological teenage boys with raging hormones should be allowed to use the girls' toilets in schools, that biological men who haven't even legally registered as women should be running women's rape crisis centres, and that the word "woman" should be erased in the provision of health services because the 0.002% of the UK women's population who are transmen still with a cervix might miss a smear test. Let's just ignore the tens of millions of women in the UK or US or Germany who might miss on a smear test because the invitation for them to attend a smear test was written in a fucking weird way they couldn't understand.

R284 I see you gave up calling people "Boris" endlessly and have moved to pseudoscience and made-up statistics.

Gender dysphorics need therapy, not surgery. If trans activists weren't blocking all alternatives to surgery - and even trying to get them outlawed by calling them "conversion therapy" - there would likely be more advances in therapeutics.

And the number of new trans who are actually gender dysphorics is vanishingly small. Autogynephiles have taken over, and they're a lot of the reason for the push on getting gender treated the same as sex and invading women's spaces. They're competing in womens' sports and claiming that a body on opposite sex hormones is the same as a female body, which is not true. But they suppress or dismiss or try to discredit any studies suggesting otherwise.

Many trans have multiple mental issues, autism, depression, narcissistic disorder, among other problems. It's not just "gender dysphoria", it's the combination of various mental health problems. Yet instead of getting them actual help they "affirm" and immediately get them on track for hormones, chest binders, and if they're younger, puberty blockers.

Statistics are suppressed. The detransitioners aren't tracked and then they use that as a reason for claiming that gender surgery fixes the issues, when it does not seem to be the case. They got the Reddit detrans board shut down. They're getting criminals marked as their gender identity and not sex, which leaves you with a sudden odd rise in sex crimes committed in "women".

They've taken over all formerly gay support organizations and changed their focus to "trans". They've tied themselves to gay and lesbians so we can't get the equality act passed in the US because it focuses on gender instead of sex. Even the ACLU, which used to stand for free speech, is now filing amicus briefs against teachers for refusing to use newly transed students' new pronouns, which is compelled speech. Their mission has been so twisted it's now the reverse of what it used to be!

Luckily people are finally waking up and seeing past the "be nice". They're seeing past the death threats, cancellations, firings, and political manipulation behind the scenes. More and more people are reaching Peak Trans every day and the pushback is finally building steam.

No, it was not, r287. Gays and trans are not the same, at all. We didn't ask to take over the opposite sex's sex-segregated spaces. Sexual attraction is not the same as a feeling of being born in the wrong body, if we are talking about gender dysphorics, and sexual attraction is not the same as a fetish, if we are talking about autogynephiles. No one is born in the wrong body and therapy CAN actually help gender dysphoria. Conversion therapy - the gay to straight kind - doesn't work on gays because it is innate to our core.

And thanks for reminding me that the trans are now saying that people are same gender attracted, not same sex attracted, and have even gotten this definition changed in significant places. They are erasing what it means to be gay. Men who are attracted to other men are called bigots for saying they like penis, not vagina. Lil Nas X even recently got called a bigot for saying he liked penis. Trans women are invading major women's dating apps and hitting on actual lesbian women, and if the women say they're "same sex attracted" they can get banned.

Just the regular police, r294, as would be the case if a "cis" man (to use a phrase you might understand) entered a women's bathroom or tried to participate in women's sports.

We've had toilets, bathrooms, changing rooms, etc. organised according to single sex for centuries, in every part of the world. It's really not that hard. One's spurious "gender identity" is completely irrelevant here.

by Anonymousreply 295October 19, 2021 11:17 AM

First of all, we haven't had public bathrooms for "centuries." Like a typical American, you are uneducated about history, preferring cable news segments to make your blood boil.

Second of all, the "regular police" don't regulate women's sports. They wouldn't really show up if a man tried to enter a woman's bathroom.

But if it's sexual assault on women you get mad about (and I don't think you really care about it because I think your motivation is hate and not love), then here are some things you can work on, and they have nothing to do with trans people:

1. ban alcohol 2. ban any straight, "cis" male participation in girls' sports 3. ban any straight, "cis" male participation religious education 4. ban any straight, "cis" male participation' secular education

That should give you a long list of things to do.

R229 How many people in Texas it effects? Thousands of women in sports. Even if it was just a couple, would it matter any less? By your logic, gay people make only 1-2% of the population, so how many people would be effected by banning the same sex marriage in Texas?

I'm not American, moron at r296. Public latrines just for men existed in Roman times. There were public toilet facilities just for men throughout history - women have had to fight for a place to shit. The first sex-segregated public water closets were created nearly 3 centuries ago, which was probably the first time toilet facilities were provided for women. I also have a PhD in history.

Some dolts are still not getting why women don't want men - in any form - in their private spaces. And by private spaces I don't mean their vajayjay.

Women want and need privacy, dignity and to feel safe when they are in these spaces. They do not want to have to worry about which male is safe and which is not - and which will do something to hurt them or make them feel uncomfortable aka creep them out or subject them to some shit they don't need to see. Men don't usually care about these things. Most women do.

R308 so in other words, it's not a hate group.

They have been investigated and were allowed as a charity under UK law, and they don't allow hate groups.

What the people claiming it is a hate group mean is that LGB Alliance is excluding non-gay trans people because it is based around innate sexual attraction, not identity. LGB Alliance has trans members, but they are trans members who are actually same-sex attracted, and not straight people who identify as the opposite gender and call themselves gay or lesbian.

LGB Alliance does not support gender identity people of the opposite sex identifying themselves into legally defined and protected classes such as women, and they consider the elevation of gender identity over sex to be homophobic because the gender identity movement tells people if they aren't happy with their existing gender they can physically be the opposite gender, and are thus no longer gay or lesbian, but straight.

That is why there are so many formerly-gay organizations and propaganda outfits like Pink News, and Wikipedia editors, claiming LGB Alliance is a hate group. Because they disagree with the gender dogma. Due to the gender theorists' rule of "no debate", any pushback or concern about their methods is called transphobic or "anti-trans", and they refuse to discuss the issues raised by groups like LGB Alliance in good faith, preferring instead to bully, name-call, and try to cancel those who disagree.

Your argument completely ignores the physical strength differential between males and females, R356. It exists, you know. It really does. And all sane people understand that policy must be made with this differential in mind.

"An estimated 91% of victims of rape & sexual assault are female and 9% male. Nearly 99% of perpetrators are male." And while "Approximately 80-85% of completed rapes are committed by someone who is known to the victim/survivor," we scroll down to see, "Lifetime risk for violent victimization including sexual assault for women who live with homelessness and mental illness is 97%"-- in other words, the people most likely to use/reside in homeless and domestic violence shelters, rape services, halfway houses, prisons, etc.

AGPS, on the other hand. have no problem retaining every aspect of their malehood.
