Whither Women's Sport?

The prognosis is not good.  Women's sport will wither, dry out and die on the vine at the rate it is going. Which is a pity. Fine, healthy, competetive girls who strive to do their best are to be encouraged, but 'trends' are working against them. What is so disconcerting is that 'Officialdom' is leading the charge to destroy woman's sport altogether, and using cantish mantras to do it.

This at a time when even such hallowed men's sports such as Australian Rules Footy and even the more gentlemanly cricket now have female teams at National level. The question is though, how can they survive?  Demands for 'equal pay' for girl-teams that get maybe 2000 spectators when the men's teams get 20,000 mearly hide the real problem. Bringing in commercial realities cloud the biological realities that are fast overtaking.

How will women's sport at Olympic level survive?

Many years ago there was furore at the communist countries' use of hormones to 'boost' female athletes. Many from East Germany and Russia, even China, were stripped of medals when their 'drug' tests came back showing positive.  Now it seems such hormonal boosts are officially condoned and even encouraged. Blatent claims of 'feeling' like a woman is enough to put a odd man across the women's finishing line ahead of real girls who were striving against unfair odds.

For once, (Hah! Again) this old Knight stands with the ladies.

There is no Honour in a man beating a woman in an unfair competition.

And even less Integrity in a man pretending he is a woman just so he can win a prize.

Others are raising alarums too.  Courtney Kirchoff for one, was in the US room the other day, sounding off.
Women’s Sports are Dead: 
‘Female’ Transgender Track Star Slaughters Female Competition…

I’m going to be straight up front. At first, I thought this was a parody. A dude – with a mustache – claiming to identify as a woman and running on the girl’s track team? This had to be schtick. And I apologize ahead of time if it was and everyone other site got fooled too.

But… just watch this video.
Andraya is a transgender 'woman' who was running for the girls’ track team on Wednesday, racing other female athletes from Portland and Old Saybrook. After telling 'her' father, Rahsaan Yearwood, and mother, Ngozi Nnaji, in middle school that 'she' identified as a female, Andraya, 15, was getting the chance 'she' wanted.

Alternate theory
Andraya wasn’t fast enough for the boys’ team and wanted to win. 
He declares himself a shemale, tells mommy and daddy who also want trophies on their mantle, and they allow him to do it while proclaiming themselves the most progressive couple on the block. Win-win-win. 
Except for the actual girls on the actual girls’ team.

With family, friends and teammates cheering her on at her first high school track meet, Andraya won the girls 100- and 200-meter dashes, and helped her 4×100-meter relay team take second place. She ran 11.99 seconds in the 100 and 26.34 in the 200.

“I do hope I inspire people, but not only with track,” Andraya said Wednesday. “I hope it inspires people to not hold yourself back just because you’re scared of it or it is your first time doing it, or because of other people’s negativity.

Other people’s negativity.” Interesting. Like maybe girls who think a boy on their team is cheating to the testosterone degree. Because it’s cheating to the testosterone degree. A kind of cheating which will eventually lead to the end of women’s sports. 
Thanks, feminists.

There’s no (public) outrage yet from the actual girls he’s stealing opportunities from.

But you can bet your box of tampons (that actual girls require every 24-28 days) there’s plenty of private outrage from biological girls who’re getting their pretty little tushies beat by a tallywhacker equipped dingus. 
Andraya would probably just appropriate this outrage to PMS, as males are wont to do in the face of a girl who takes issue with (well anything). A concept Andraya, as a man, will never understand. Because he doesn’t have biologically female parts or hormones. 
Because he’s a boy, not a girl. 
That’s not hate speech, it’s reality. If you’re triggered, go smack yourself with a stapler. Preferably red.

The trend of “transwomen” (MEN) commandeering women’s sports will lead to the eventual demise of women’s sports. To anyone out there who says “yeah, but women’s sports are a joke,” thanks for missing the point entirely. Find a stapler. Smack yourself with it. Women’s sports are for women to play. Because women want to play sports.

Boys are not girls. Girls are not boys. Boys should not play girl’s sports.
I am not about to argue with her. In fact I kept cool drinks flowing her way all evening. Her rant deserved.

I do not know just how much a desire to win had to do with 'Andraya's choice of competitors, nor if his parents really had a space on their mantlepiece for some trophies, but I have heard the mendacities and calumnies before. "Other people's negativities" indeed. Cheeky little bugger. And I can understand (without being a girl) the disappointment and yes, anger, of the girls he beat. 

But they and he are not alone. The 'Title 1X' legislation in America which so decimated boy's sport in Colleges, is having an 'Unintended Consequence'. As is the modern child-abuse trend of encouraging youngsters to do try-outs for opposite sex life.

Boys in dresses is one thing - wear what you like, drongos - and girls enamoured by the latest Lara Croft, kick-arse actions films who wear new age battle-dress instead of a blouse and skirt, similarly: but men competing in sport against women by pretending to be women is quite another. 

Is it commonplace though? Let's see. One Swallow doth not a Summer Make.

Here we can take a look at the biology, and then see if there are more than enough examples to dismiss any idea that its a 'one-off'. World News Daily left a few papers lying around for us.

Transgenders dominate in weightlifting, track, wrestling, football, basketball, mixed martial arts

You’ve heard the expression, “Boys will be boys.” But what happens when a brawny boy wants to be one of the girls – fiercely competing with females in weightlifting, brutally tackling girls on the football field or even dealing powerful knockout punches to ladies in a mixed martial-arts cage?
It’s now happening across America and around the world.

Biological males are joining women’s teams, smashing records and dominating in sports such as weightlifting, softball, cycling, track, wrestling, football, volleyball, dodgeball, handball, cricket, golf, basketball and mixed martial arts.

The movement for “equality” has apparently inspired transgender athletes to join teams of their preferred gender. And that often means biological males are competing against biological females on women’s teams. But in the world of sports, critics argue, equality between the sexes simply doesn’t exist. Physiologically speaking, there’s a gender gap between men and women that cannot be erased.
For example, when it comes to running, men are generally faster than women. As the 2015 edition of Runner’s World explained, “At every distance up to the marathon, the gap between men’s and women’s world record times is nine to 10 percent – and it’s a similar or even higher percentage among recreational runners.”

What do YOU think? Should transgendered men be allowed to compete in women’s sports? 

So why do men have some athletic advantages over women?

Ohio University biological sciences lecturer Chris Schwirian told Runner’s World: “Faster men’s times for 100 to 800 meters are mostly due to men, on average, having greater muscle mass – and a larger portion of it is fast-twitch, which allows them to generate greater force, speed and anaerobically produced energy. At all distances beyond 800 meters, the main reason for the gap is men’s higher aerobic capacity [VO2max], on average, which is due to their typically having less body fat, more hemoglobin and muscle mass, and larger hearts and lungs than women.”
On average, men have longer and larger bones, which gives them mechanical advantages over women, since they have greater leverage, increased height and larger frames to support muscle. Their bones are also more dense, and they have tougher ligaments, making them less prone to sports injury.
Since these physical and physiological factors give most men a clear competitive edge in sports, is it fair or even safe for biological males – with larger muscle mass, hearts and lungs and greater strength, acceleration and speed – to compete against girls and women?
“If men can claim to be women and invade a sport that only women are allowed to compete in, then it’s a safe bet men will win,” writes the Federalist’s Brandon Morse. “All the accolades, rewards, and recognition will be taken from the women who rightfully deserve them and given to a man who essentially cheated by putting on makeup, injecting himself with hormones, and saying he’s a woman.”
Why is all this happening? In his widely acclaimed new book, “The Snapping of the American Mind,” award-winning journalist David Kupelian stunningly documents – in a chapter titled “Gender Madness” – precisely what the transgender phenomenon is really all about. Prepare to be shocked.
 Allowing biological males to compete against women is not only unfair and dangerous to women, it’s worse than that, according to David Kupelian, WND managing editor and author of “The Snapping of the American Mind.”

“The insanity of this affects not just the transgendered individual and the women athletes thus victimized,” he said. “It also contributes to a sort of mass delusion infecting our whole society in which, thanks to the influence of the powerful LGBT movement, everybody now has to either affirm the absurd and crazy – that a man who is essentially a female impersonator can fairly compete against women – or they have to suffer abuse and persecution as bigots just for speaking the truth.”

Kupelian said these “grotesquely unfair matchups” between female athletes and powerful men who identify as women is just one more unfortunate aspect of a revolutionary movement sweeping the nation.

“This sexual anarchy movement – which, for example, recently announced dozens of brand-new genders that never existed in the history of humanity until a few years ago – is really part of a revolutionary political movement rooted in a mixture of personal trauma, utopian ideology and demonic forces that is unfortunately ever-expanding in today’s America,” he said.
Despite all of these arguments, the National Collegiate Athletic Association and Olympics have instituted policies allowing transgender athletes to compete on teams that correspond with genders with which they identify, provided the athletes undergo a year of hormone replacement therapy.
Ie, Drugs. These were banned up until now. 
To document the growing trend, WND has compiled the following list of headline-making transgender athletes crashing the world of women’s sports. 
Weightlifting: Biological male takes 1st place in women’s contest.
Transgender weightlifter Laurel Hubbard, who was born a man, won the Australian international women’s competition March 19.

Hubbard, 39, lifted 591 pounds, nearly 20 pounds more than the woman who won the silver medal by lifting 572 pounds.

Weightlifter Deborah Acason, from the Australian Weightlifting Federation, told 1 News Now she’s concerned about the fairness of Hubbard competing in the women’s division.

“We all deserve to be on an even playing field,” Acason said. “It’s difficult when you believe that you’re not. If it’s not even, why are we doing the sport?”
The International Olympic Committee recognizes male and female as genders, and transgender women are classified as female.
Sportswriter Phil Gifford argued that Hubbard should be allowed to compete with women.
“[S]he is completely entitled, I believe, to compete, and anybody who says otherwise is either being, I think, very prejudiced, which is the main thing I would imagine, or just jealous of the fact that maybe this woman has come along and she’s better than the female competitors.”
Phil is stupid. Don't be like Phil. 
Cycling: Biological male dominates women’s competition

Transgender cyclist Jillian Bearden, a 36-year-old biological male and Colorado Springs native, won the women’s division of the El Tour de Tucson in four hours and 26 minutes in November 2016.

Bearden founded the world’s first transgender cycling group, Transnational Women’s Cycling Team.

“It’s absolutely huge,” Bearden told the Daily Star of his El Tour de Tucson victory. “We’re at a moment of time – especially now – where not only do we have to come out but we have to be positive. We have to come together in solidarity and move this country in a direction that is accepting of all.”
A real Mandy Rice Davies moment there. (Well, she would say that, wouldn't she). Jillian is stupid too, or thinks we are. Don't be like Jillian. 
Third-place finisher Suzanne Sonya told Cycling Tips: “I’ll take her on any day, but that’s just me. I’ll take on men, too. I feel bad about saying it, but, no, I do not think it’s fair play, and I question her integrity knowing that she’s going into these events knowing that she is going to be stronger.

“I’m sure [Bearden] had a rough go at it. It’s very difficult to be transgender.
I hear people saying this. How is it rough? A chap gets to wear frilly knickers and a dress if he wants and no-one is allowed to criticise. A woman can be as butch as Arnie Swartzenagger and wear lederhosen and no-one is allowed to lift an eye-brow.  'Officialdom' bends forward for them. Where's this 'rough' bizzo? 
But [when it comes to racing], it’s problematic to me that she [transitioned] only a couple years ago, and has lived 30 years as a man. Regardless of testosterone levels, she’s got muscle memory and a lung capacity that I could never build up. She was a Cat 1 as a male. I could never match a pro man. How fair is that to her female competitors?”
Softball: Male transgender joins girls team
California allowed Pat Cordova-Goff, 17, born a male, to join the girls’ softball team at Azusa High School in Azusa in 2014. Goff was already a cheerleader at the school.

State law requires that “a pupil be permitted to participate in sex-segregated school programs and activities, including athletic teams and competitions, and use facilities consistent with his or her gender identity, irrespective of the gender listed on the pupil’s records.”

“We feel really confident about her ability,” Azusa Unified Superintendent Linda Kaminski told local newspaper San Gabriel Valley Tribune. “No.  1 as a district, we want to ensure access to everyone, but we’re also committed to placing students on the team on their merits. … Based on her skills, Pat did make the team.” 
“Parents had questions and we answered them as best we could,” Azusa High School principal Ramiro Rubalcaba told Fox News. “My experience is that the parents have been pleased.

“Some students and players may feel uncomfortable, but that’s only because this is something new to them. But I believe they are all going to be accepting,” he said. “And I think the team is going to bring home a championship. That’s my prediction.”
But.... but.... isn't 'feeling uncomfortable' a crime these days?  
But Randy Thomasson, president of, told Fox the state’s decision to allow biological males to compete with females is unfair.

“It’s intolerable of this young man to not accept an equal standing of girls playing girls,” Thomasson said. “It is categorically unfair to biological girls to have to compete with a sexually confused young man with stronger upper body strength, who makes the game board decidedly ‘unequal.'”
Track and field: Transgender high-schooler places 3rd at state

High-school runner Nattaphon Wangyot, 18, born a male, participated in the Class 3A girls’ sprints at the Alaska state meet in June 2016 and placed 3rd in the 200-meter dash (27.3 seconds) and 5th in the 100-meter dash (13.36 seconds). Wangyot also competed on girls’ volleyball and basketball teams.

The Alaska Schools Activities Association has a policy that allows each school district to determine whether transgender athletes may compete in a sport as their chosen gender.

“We didn’t want to necessarily create a situation where we were going to bring in a committee and those types of things just because it’s just not practical here,” ASAA Executive Director Billy Strickland told KTVA-TV 11.
Bring in a committee? Do they imagine that a committee could bring in the common sense that aduts once had?
Sixteen runners qualified for state, according to the report.

Female high-school runner Saskia Harrison, who barely missed the cut, told KTVA: “I’m glad that this person is comfortable with who they are and they’re able to be happy in who they are, but I don’t think it’s competitively completely 100 percent fair.”

Eagle River junior Peyton Young, also a runner, said: “I don’t know what’s politically correct to say, but in my opinion, your gender is what you’re born with. It’s the DNA. Genetically, a guy has more muscle mass than a girl, and if he’s racing against a girl, he may have an advantage.”

Alaska Family Action President Jim Minnery held a protest against rules that allow male athletes to compete against females.
“We are here today as a voice from the community to ensure that female athletes are not denied the playing opportunities and scholarships otherwise available to them and to make the playing field even again,” he said. “Allowing students to play on teams of the opposite sex disproportionately impacts female students, who will lose spots on a track, soccer and volleyball teams to male students who identify as female.”
Wrestling: Transgender wins high-school girls tournament

Mack Beggs, 17, was born a girl and reportedly began identifying as a boy at the age of 3. Though Beggs underwent testosterone treatments for more than a year and had the muscle mass of a teenage boy, Beggs competed and took first place in the University Interscholastic League state girls’ championship on Feb. 25, 2016.

“If he has been taking hormones, or steroids, he should be wrestling boys,” youth counselor Melissa Roush told CNN.

Dr. Brandon Mines, assistant professor at Emory University’s Department of Orthopedics, agreed with Roush’s statement.
“Testosterone and anabolic steroids are in the same family and have the effect of increasing muscle mass and strength gains,” Mines told CNN.
Beggs had a 56-0 season and 110-pound weight class title.
Football: Transgender sues women’s team, plays on another
Transgender football player Christina Ginther, who was born a male and is six feet tall, has sued a semi-pro women’s football team for discrimination and is now playing for another women’s football team.

Ginther, 44, tried out for the Minnesota Vixen women’s football team in October after transitioning from male to female. But he was told the league doesn’t allow biological males to play against females due to safety concerns.

“I hung up the phone and just felt violated,” Ginther said, according to Minnesota Public Radio. “I mean, just the sense of, ‘I’m a freak. I’m defective. I am not worthy to be with this team.”
Er, yes.You do have something seriously amiss somewhere, sonny. 
So Ginther filed a discrimination lawsuit against the Minnesota Vixen and the Independent Women’s Football League, or IWFL.

IWFL attorney Greg Van Gompel explained the league policy: “It says, ‘A player may not play in the IWFL, unless they are now, and always have been, legally and medically a female, as determined by their birth certificate and driver’s license.”

Ginther claims his testosterone levels have dropped to near zero after taking estrogen for two years.

Now Ginther plays for the Minnesota Machine, a team in another women’s football league. He said he hopes his lawsuit will inspire other transgender athletes.
“A lot of times, we’re afraid our voice won’t be heard or maybe the consequences of speaking up will just make things worse for us,” Ginther said. “But if anything, trans people should feel empowered. Yes, we do have a voice.”
Don't be a whiney-arse 'fffeeling vvviolated' like Ginther. 

And about that Olympic threat.....
Volleyball: Transgender player eyes 2020 Olympics

Transgender volleyball player Tia Thompson has eyes set on 2020 Olympics
Transgender volleyball player Tia Thompson, born a male, played with the men’s division of USA Volleyball, or USAV, until Thompson was given permission in January to play in the women’s division, NBC News reported.

“It took me three years to finally get approved with all the transitioning and hormone therapy and submitting all my paperwork to the Gender Committee,” Thompson said.

Under USAV rules, transgender women must undergo hormone replacement therapy for at least a year and change their gender to female on their I.D. documentation.

Thompson is scheduled to compete in the Haili Volleyball Tournament on Hawaii’s Big Island this month.
Thompson also has big plans for 2020, when he would like to compete in the Summer Olympics in Tokyo.
“By me coming out and opening the doors, it will get more accepted,” Thompson said.
Mixed martial arts: Transgender fighter competes in women’s division
Transgender MMA fighter Fallon Fox, born a man, gave his female opponent a concussion and broke her eye socket in 2015.

The woman, Tamikka Brents, suffered a serious eye injury from a damaged orbital bone and needed seven staples after she fought Fox.

The TKO came at 2:17 during the first round of their match.

Brents told WHOA-TV, “I’ve never felt so overpowered in my life.”
“I’ve fought a lot of women and have never felt the strength that I felt in a fight as I did that night,” she said. “I can’t answer whether it’s because she was born a man or not, because I’m not a doctor. I can only say I’ve never felt so overpowered in my life, and I am an abnormally strong female in my own right.”
I am not a doctor either. Most in the Tavern are not. Our knowledge of anatomy may be basic and not up to full medical standard. But we all know an arsehole when we see one. And Fallon is an arsehole. Don't be like Fallon.
Brents said Fox’s “grip was different.”

“I could usually move around in the clinch against … females but couldn’t move at all in Fox’s clinch.”

In 2013, UFC commentator Joe Rogan was outraged that Fallon fought as a female athlete.

“She calls herself a woman, but I tend to disagree,” he said. “She used to be a man, but now … she’s a transgender, which is (the) official term that means you’ve gone through it, right? And she wants to be able to fight women in MMA? I say no f—ing way. 
"I say if you had a d–k at one point in time, you also have all the bone structure that comes with having a d–k. You have bigger hands. You have bigger shoulder joints. You’re a f—ing man. That’s a man, OK?”

Rogan called Fallon a “huge” fighter with a “man’s face.”

“You want to be a woman and you want to take female hormones? You want to get a boob job? That’s all fine. I support your right to live as a woman,” he said.

But, Rogan argued, Fallon should fight only men.
“She has to fight guys,” he said. “First of all, she’s not really a she. She’s a transgender, post-op person. The operation doesn’t shave down your bone density. It doesn’t change. You look at a man’s hands, and you look at a woman’s hands, and they’re built different. They’re just thicker. They’re stronger. Your wrists are thicker. Your elbows are thicker. Your joints are thicker. Just the mechanical function of punching, a man can do it much harder than a woman can, period.”
Basketball: Transgender, 50, joins women’s college team
Gabrielle Ludwig, 50, who was born Robert, joined the women’s basketball team at Mission College in Santa Clara, California, in 2012.

Ludwig is 6 feet, 6 inches tall and weighs 220 pounds.

On Nov. 30, 2012, a judge awarded Ludwig a new birth certificate designating him a “female.”
The Judge is as unqualified as a doctor as I am. His opinion on a person's gender is based on the same common-sense that everyone who isn't nuts has. That judge is nots. Don't be like the Judge. 
Ludwig played on the women’s team even though he was a male college basketball player in 1980 for Nassau Community College. According to Community College Athletic Association bylaws, a student may only play for two years. But the athletic association made an exception for Ludwig, so he could play as a woman.

The women on the team nicknamed Ludwig “Big Sexy” and “Princess.”
Volleyball: Transgender makes women’s team
Transgender volleyball player Chloe Psyche Anderson, 24, born a male, joined the U.C. Santa Cruz women’s volleyball team in 2016. Anderson is one of the first transgender athletes to play volleyball at the NCAA Division III level.

“Once I decided to come out as transgender, it was the first time I really started to feel good about myself,” Anderson told the U.C. Santa Cruz newspaper. “[Before that] I had never really experienced being happy. I really was just totally lost.”

Anderson said hormone therapy has caused muscle weakness and coordination problems.
That should give great confidence to the other ladies on the team. Not.
Does he have an advantage because he was born male? Anderson doesn’t think so.

“I probably have the least testosterone of anyone on the team,” Anderson said.

Anderson lives in a new housing community for transgender students at U.C. Santa Cruz.

Dodgeball: Transgender player competes against women
Transgender Savannah Burton, born a male, used to play on a male dodgeball team. But Burton, a Canadian, transitioned and now plays on a professional women’s dodgeball team. In 2015, Burton competed in the world championship.
“I was still playing dodgeball when I started taking the testosterone blockers and estrogen,” Burton told “I could definitely see that my throw wasn’t as hard as it was. I couldn’t play the same way. I couldn’t compete at the same level that I had.”
Shape noted that Burton, as a male, threw balls so hard that they would bounce off opponents’ chests with a loud noise.
Now, he claims he throws more like a girl.
“Now, a lot of people are catching those balls,” Burton said. “So it’s kind of frustrating that way.”
Burton has also competed in a female rowing competition.
Roller derby: Transgender skates on women’s team
Skater Vanessa Sites, 31, is the first transgender to compete on Team USA in the World Cup of Roller Derby.
<<<<  {In the air on the left} 
Though Sites has skated in roller derby for at least eight years, he didn’t reveal his transgender identity to the media until recently.

“I want people to know me for my skating and not what’s between my legs,” Sites told the Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, online newspaper the Times Leader.
Many in the Tavern, hearing this, spilled their beers. 

Sites is a member of the Gotham Girls Roller Derby based in New York City.

“I’m so good at it, so I wanted to be the best,” Sites told the paper.

Even though Sites was born a biological male, he doesn’t believe he has an unfair advantage when he competes against women.

“I don’t think I have an advantage,” Sites said. “I get knocked down the same as everyone else.”
Sites said other transgender players skate in roller derby, “but I’m one of the few that … was gifted with skills and really love it. I just worked really hard. I want to be the best.”
Too much Americana? Let's come back to Oz then for a bit.
Cricket: Transgender player joins women’s team 

Transgender Catherine McGregor, born a male, is a cricket player on a Canberra, Australia, women’s team. In late 2016, McGregor said he wanted to play in the Women’s Big Bash League.
Ahh yes. The once Lt Col in the Army until the Chief of Defence, a feminist man took a shine to him. He took to wearing a female's uniform. Too wierd for the battlefield so now he plays for girls' cricket. God help us. 
“I have been pleasantly surprised because there was always the fear that the haters out there would say I don’t deserve to play in the women’s competition because I was born male,” McGregor, 60, said. “It hasn’t happened though, and I have had all sorts of messages.

“And the women on my team didn’t give a stuff. They have welcomed me with open arms, and I can see a real future there,” McGregor said. “In fact there is already a trans woman on our team, so it’s a complete non-event in terms of controversy for them.”

McGregor said he no longer produces testosterone and has high levels of estrogen.

“I know there might be some out there who would say, ‘That’s just an old bloke in a dress,’ but I would argue that any physical advantages I may have had as a born male are offset by my age and the changes to my body,” McGregor said.
Yes. Its just an old bloke in a dress. OK.  Don't be like McGregor. And less of the 'hater' hater.
Handball: Transgender star joins women’s team
Callum - Hannah, in the Yellow !! A BiiiiG Girl.

Transgender Hannah Mouncey, 26, a biological male called Callum, was previously captain of a men’s handball team in Canberra, Australia. He played 22 games for the men’s team, including the 2013 World Championships and qualifications for the 2016 Olympic Games.

But then he began taking hormone treatments and transitioned into a woman in May 2016.

In August 2016, Mouncey announced he would be joining the Australian women’s handball team.

“Sport is very physical in nature, and it can be perceived to be a very masculine, macho environment,” Mouncey told the Daily Mail last year. “But in general sport is probably one of the more accepting places you could find.”
Mouncey said he hopes his story can inspire others.
“The more people that come out as trans from different walks of life hopefully it will make people see … it’s something probably more common than they think, and it’s OK,” he said.
But in October 2016, the Daily Telegraph reported that Mouncey had been sidelined over height fears.
Not surprising when you think about it. We can hardly send him to Internationals against say Saudi Arabia for fear of him being taken to the top of a tall building where fear of heights will be the least of his worries. 
Handball Australia ruled that he couldn’t join the women’s team in a tournament. The official reason was that he hadn’t completed a full year of hormone treatment. But sources told the paper that Mouncey’s six-foot-two-inch stature posed a big problem.

“She’s still a 6-foot, 2-inch female and is still 100kg [220 pounds] or so and larger than everyone else with a physical advantage and a certain level of muscle mass … we have to protect the other players,” the source told the Telegraph.

“It would not be an issue six months down the line as she will have met IOC guidelines, but the fact Hannah was three weeks out of the 12-month IOC guideline, and no one had dealt with a transgender player in a contact sport before, meant no precedent was set. No one was prepared to break the rules.”

Board members reportedly feared they would not be insured if Mouncey injured a female player.
“Being able to play as a woman for the first time after transitioning would have meant feeling normal again,” Mouncey told the Telegraph. “In six months, I’ll still be 6 foot 2 inches and big, and nothing will have changed. Anyone who thinks I have an unfair advantage is wrong. Being tall means I have extra weight to carry and can’t run as fast as the girls.”
Golf: Transgender pro-golfer plays in women’s tournament
In 2004, pro-golfer Mianne Bagger, born a male, became the first transgender woman to play in a professional golf tournament.
“That was huge,” Bagger told ABC News correspondent Jay Schadler of her chance to play in the 2004 Women’s Australian Open. “It’s like I get there and I’m on the course side of the ropes. I’m here. I’m playing. It was like, wow!”
Bagger claims his physical advantages from being born male are now gone, since he took female hormones.
“The physical changes are, you lose muscle mass and testosterone,” Bagger said.
“You lose overall strength. … I certainly wouldn’t be out there playing if I felt I had an unfair advantage.”
You make your own minds up about it. I have enough to be going on.

This whole 'transgender' bizzo has got out of hand. 

By the way, should anyone dare to call me a 'hater' or a 'bigot' I am neither. I am a scoffer.

Meanwhile women's sport is liable to be 'mixed' here-on-in.

There is little point in small girls aspiring to be athletes, in almost any discipline.

Feminists, marxists, cultural SJWs have a lot to answer for. 

I cannot see many women thanking them.

I think we all need a drink.



  1. The question is though, how can they survive?

    Hopefully they won't, market forces will prevail and they'll go back to proper women's sports like netball and hockey.

    1. Hmmmmm. Not sure about hockey.

    2. Somehow I think that J has missed the point of your post :-/

    3. Yes, Cherie, methinks he did too. Sporty girls are healthy and fit girls and all goodness to them. Interloping faux-females are a curse upon them playing and enjoying their peak. Such is the side-effect of feminism's war against men and masculinity. Collateral damage.

  2. I was once upon a time a cracking swimmer with some ambition - even if I do say so myself, since nobody else would - but female swimmers are bettering my best times. At least now I can salvage some pride knowing that they are probably trannies.
    This nonsense must stop before women's sport becomes defunct and I quite like watching several codes of women's sport.
    Comprehensive report Amfortas. I will re-post to you-know-where.

    1. Thank you and thank you. Trannies tend to show up in the pool :) Keep your head up, sir.

  3. P.S.....Lesbian Groups are not happy at all about this type of thing which also allows for men to invade the ladies loos. Nor are a lot of feminists. Just sayin'......

    1. Hmmmm. I haven't heard any feminists or lesbians railing against it. Many of the Oz female sporting teams' members are lesbian and they have not jumped up and protested much. But if you can find someone to stand in the bar and say who and where and when I will buy them a pint.

  4. I've read various blogs from lesbian orgs. and the odd feminist, not afraid to express a view. But of course in larger officialdom they must tow the whole LGBT promo thing.
    I haven't saved them but had this on file..........

  5. A week in politics is like a year in the newyorker. The article makes the case by radfems against transmen being called women, and I have heard the Germ saying so too, but evidently the sports people haven't. As an aside, one rarely hears of women becoming men and wanting to be in male sports teams or competitions.

  6. The idiots that 'allow' transgenders to compete show just how far the IQ of the average human has managed to decline.

    By the way, I loved playing football and baseball when I was a girl, and was pretty good at it, until of course I hit puberty, then I just admired the men that could do it.

    Now if you can tell me WHY the elites that run the world are pushing this stuff down our throats, and what their reason may be for doing it, you would make my day.

    Great stuff as always.

    1. Fit, healthy gitrls like sport and good for them. Just why anyone is trying to ruin not just sport but all aspects of our society is an easy one. It is all diabolical and the dominant emotions are anger envy hatred and spite.
