50-year-old transsexual ‘woman’ makes college basketball debut: video

SAN PABLO, CA, December 10, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) – Gabrielle Ludwig is not like any other woman on the basketball courts, or in the locker rooms, in Santa Clara Community College’s junior team. Gabrielle is a foot taller than every other player and has significantly more upper body strength.

That’s because the 50-year-old player was born Robert John Ludwig, a man. He still bears the tattoos of his service in Operation Desert Storm.

This turn at college basketball is his second. His first stint in 1980 was as a man at Nassau Community College.

After his sex change operation this summer he petitioned to change his birth certificate’s sex from male to female.

That edit allowed his previous sports history to be wiped off his record. Ludwig is now eligible to play for two full years.

Even at twice his opponents’ age, Ludwig cuts an imposing figure at 6’8” and 220 pounds, a fact not lost on his coach – or his much smaller opponents.

Ludwig’s coach, Corey Cafferata, told the Mercury News in time the vet “will be the most dangerous player in the state.”

Some of the sport’s regulators minimize the physical advantage that competing against women gives Ludwig.

Central Valley Conference, Commissioner Logan McKechnie said, while Luwdig is tall, his state certification as a female is all that matters. “I don’t think, frankly, fairness enters into it,” he said.

Another commissioner, Dale Murray of the Coast Conference, believes Ludwig is evenly matched with his competitors and “just happens to be a bit taller than everyone else.”

Others question whether a player with Ludwig’s attributes belong in an all-female sport.

One of the people Ludwig faced off against in a recent game described his style as “real physical.”

.

The issue of transgender athletes sharing showers and locker room changing areas remains a point of contention wherever the question arises.

Parents complained upon learning a 45-year-old transgender man, who still had male genitalia, lounged naked in the women’s sauna at Evergreen State College in Washington State. The locker room was frequented by girls as young as six.

But homosexual activists claim biology does not determine sex, and it should not determine which locker rooms or restrooms people use.

In October 2010, the National Center for Lesbian Rights released a series of proposed guidelines for how schools and coaches should deal with transgender athletes.

“Transgender student athletes should be able to use the locker room, shower, and toilet facilities in accordance with the student’s gender identity,” the report stated.

Transgender people should also be allowed to share hotel rooms with members of the opposite sex, it stated.

“Transgender student athletes generally should be assigned to share hotel rooms based on their gender identity, with a recognition that any student who needs extra privacy should be accommodated whenever possible.”

They recommend any employee who refuses to comply with these regulations should be subject to discipline, “up to and including discharge or expulsion from the school,” and that failure to implement such policies “puts schools, athletic conferences, and sport governing organizations at risk of costly discrimination lawsuits and negative media attention.”

The NCAA adopted a standard policy in 2011 stating that a male-to-female transgender athlete may not compete on a female team “until completing one calendar year of documented testosterone-suppression treatment.”

They reinstated eligibility because he played as a man. Wait until the guy getting he willie cut of in MA tries to get released because he was convicted as a man> BTW, this guy stinks at basketball. the coach is delusional if he thinks he’ll get drafted by the WNBA. He’d have a heart attack trying to run with the girls that played at UCONN and Tenn.

I tried using that same dodge to get women to sleep with me back in the ‘70s. Never worked.

Of course, young women’s current fixation with the Kardashians and the like, has made me suspect women may have been smarter back then.

But homosexual activists claim biology does not determine sex..

The Roman Colosseum and Roman decadence had nothing on us. We have called them on every raise. To really get a flavor of what the expert, professional homosexual activists really profess, the reporter needed to expound on the full (for the moment) agenda.

Remember all you prudes, this is just the expression of an alternate life style. Nothing to be scared of. Be accepting. Embrace what used to be ignorantly deemed perverted. Lose your mind because the culture has lost its soul..

Evangelical pastor and author John MacArthur said that the Democratic Party has “adopted the sins of Romans 1 as their platform. Regarding Democrats and their “values” :

“In an ideal situation, their platform would mean that the government passes out condoms so people can fornicate at will,” said MacArthur. “For

those who happen to get pregnant in the process, the platform advocates that you kill the baby at the will of the mother, up and including the ninth month.”

“At the same time,” he said, “it advocates homosexual marriage, which is an oxymoron, an utter impossibility, and a gross violation of the law of

God. And then, to add to that, the murder of abortion and then the platform originally leaving God out. All of that is Romans 1.

“Romans 1 says God will judge, God has judged, throughout human history, nations that experience sexual freedom,” he said. “Romans Chapter 1
lays that out clearly. The wrath of God is revealed from Heaven against those who advocate sexual freedoms, sexual conduct outside of marriage.

And that’s an indication of a demise of a nation...

You know darn well most of these young women don’t want to play alongside this “woman”,or share locker room facilities.

He’s too old to playing anyway.

Great. Let's apply that sentiment to all things queer from now on (hey, it cuts both ways). After all, he/she said it him/herself.
