There should be Men, women, surgical men, surgical women. Having those designations doesnt in any way cause harm it just states the facts.
The fact that you associate a developmental problem with them actually being male is just illogical.
New information breeds new policies - maybe fights should be regulated in terms of weight, muscle mass, etc. Solutions change as the problems do. The fact that this has come up supports my claim. There are a few common sense solutions to one exceedingly strong woman facing much weaker ones. It's not a noteworthy topic but the transphobes want it to be. This wouldn't be an issue were it a non-trans man facing much much weaker other non-trans men.
The fact is that male is simply an adjective to describe a preconceived notion of sex that is inwardly and outwardly expressed, which is not black and white always.
No one thinks that women are generally as strong, but the attempt to frame this as binary as you are is ridiculous. There are women stronger than men, men stronger than women, women WAY stronger than other women, and men WAY stronger than other men. The common sense solution is to regulate people by their individual physicality, but you want to make this into a gender issue and gaze at the spectacle while shouting out logical fallacies left and right. It's more so "muh humanity" or "muh human decency."What are you even talking about? This thread has a lot of discussion about MTF trans people competing in women's sporting events. Of course the SJW stance is that hormone therapy is all that really matters, or that women are just as strong/fast/good as men at sports, or that it shouldn't matter anyway. The news story I posted is a perfect example of why that is simply NOT true, and it's a current event that just happened. It is very relevant to the discussion here.
Nice one though for once again making it all about "muh feels".
I thought we'd be talking about pertinent issues, not sports lmfao. I didn't really think the obvious solution to someone totally outmatching someone else was relevant to a trans legality thread just because one of the members was trans.So in other words, you came into a thread titled "Should Transwomen Be Legally Treated As Women", where a lot of discussion was about sporting events and how to deal with that, and jumped all over somebody using quotation marks around "she" because he posted a news article about a MTF beating the absolute piss out of a woman in a MMA fight. You're just defending the poor oppressed helpless ones from your position of infinite privilege though and don't have any personal feelings about it. I see.
Yes, now roll your eyes and moving along with your life where you're constantly recognized as you are and don't have to feel a growing dread day by day, hoping you don't come into contact with a member of the Logic League of White Males telling you what you are because they know what a penis is and no one else does. It's curious how quickly those who these issues don't affect dismiss the issues and feelings of others pertaining to them. It's almost as if they lack the ability to empathize, a basic human quality.Such a NON-HUMAN THING? Good lord. Yeah, saying "she" instead of she is so non-human. Gosh. How ever will I be able to sleep tonight knowing I am so awful?
The article is irrelevant to the thread. Sports need fairness regulations, fighting included. One woman vastly overpowered the other, and this happens with non-trans women too. The fact that is was brought up simply because a trans woman was part of the story is fearmongering.A news article popped up in my feed, it was related to this thread, so I posted it. It's not fear mongering, it's evidence that MTF should not be competing in sporting events against women. WTF mate?
People who tout these "perpetually offended" victim complex theories generally don't have much to actually complain about in society. Projection much? Just because you aren't oppressed doesn't mean other people don't genuinely hurt because of it. The perspective argued from is quite obvious.Hey, you're right again. They are in need of a soap box to push their perpetually offended BS agendas.
It's okay if a "real" woman completely overpowers and beats the living crap out of another, though. Yup!Yeah, so noble arguing for their RIGHTS to get into a ring with actual women and beat the living crap out of them. They are definitely SO OPPRESSED without that.
Yes, we know it's not a big deal to you. For others who have to face that perception and failure to respect another every single day sometimes, it isn't. The fact that you are mocking another's distress, and belittling it, is tiresome. Sociopaths and logical narcissists are only edgy and cool to argue with for so long. I find them tiresome to physically be with as well. Generally empathetic and warm people are good to be around, but this will be dismissed as "muh feels" or some attempt to be edgy using devisive internet slang with no actual substance.Again, putting quotation marks on "she" is not the end of the world. If that causes someone "severe distress", I'd refer them to the last 3 words in my sig.
