Transgender male sues for $2.5 million and the right to compete against women at CrossFit Games
lifesitenews.com ^ | 03/08/2014 | BEN JOHNSON

Posted on 03/08/2014 6:37:02 AM PST by massmike

A transgender man is suing a strength competition for $2.5 million after CrossFit denied him the right to compete against women.

Chloie Jonnson, who was born male, wants to test his brawn against female athletes in the CrossFit Games, a grueling series of contests designed to find the world's most fit competitors. When a female rival raised questions about Jonnson being considered a woman, CrossFit said he must compete as a man.

Jonnson had a sex-change operation in 2006 and is legally recognized in the state of California as a woman. Incensed, he filed a $2.5 million lawsuit against the fitness company.

CrossFit said that it is happy to do its part to assure that transgender competitors are "welcomed with open arms in this community, but what we will not waver from is our commitment to ensure the fairness of the competition."

Chloie says that view violates California's anti-discrimination laws. The company says Jonnson's assertion violates common sense.

I knew transgender was the next “group of the week” but I had no idea it would be so soon after the gays. Holy cow! We are in a crazy time right now.

They should let "it" compete as "it" desires.

My bet is "it" will get "its" arse kicked.

Common sense vs. anti-discrimination laws? I think we all know who is going to win this one.

These weirdos obviously can’t make a living, so they have to sue for bogus “discrimination.” Juries and judges should award them $1, commensurate with their worth.

I cant imagine any of it. it is self mutilation, via an MD.

7 of 9 gave us Obummer.

Jeri Ryan should have shut her mouth and let her husband get elected before she split from him...

by the way she IS HOT! the only reason I had to watch the worst ST franchisee, Voyager, was 7 of 9.

It is called the “LGBT” agenda.

Lesbian rights = check
Gay = check
Bisexual = check
Transgender = still in progress

The Homosexual rights movement has achieved nearly all of its goals for the first 3 parts of its initials. The movement has successfully changed perceptions of our youth through its constant propaganda in movies and TV normalizing this lifestyle. Look to see an onslaught of TV shows and movies that treat transgender people in a sympathetic light. This all about money. Gays have more disposable income become they have higher income on average and don’t have kid. This disposable income goes to candidates who support their position. This disposable income is sought after by American companies. So, companies from Google to Walt Disney do not want to offend this group of people with lots of disposable income. Democrat politicians see gays as a cash cow for their political coffers. This is the reality.

I know a trannie—had the plumbing reconfigured and head lights put on—but still built like a brick sh&t house and could easily beat most women in competition—even those REALLY athletic women I say IT’S NOT FAIR

In the spirit of inclusion, I say let this "Chloie" character enter the women's competition and kick butt.

It's the logical extension of the madness our culture has descended into. Soon natural born women will have nothing to excel at. All the awards for Homecoming Queen, beauty contests, women's sports, etc., will go to feminized men. Because after all, we are a tolerant, all-inclusive society where everybody is treated equally except for heterosexual, white men.

Soon we will have a man for "First Lady" as well. Wait a minute, I think we may have crossed that threshold already...

Not necessarily. It is possible for a person to be physically female from birth, but have the male chromosomes, due to a genetic abnormality.

In this case, the guy had himself physically mutilated, but is still a guy. This could be seen as a way to try to push women out of sports, since women simply cannot physically compete against guys (not even guys pretending to be women). It's rather ironic, considering how hard the left has worked to push women into sports, despite a lack of strong interest.

I’m still not sure what the point of these lawsuits might be. This pervert is a mentally ill man. Even if he wins in court and competes against women with much less muscle mass, and even if he wins the Games, he’s still be a mutilated man and all normal people will see him that way. Even if speech codes keep many people from saying what 90% or more of us think, we will all still think it. What is the point of being so obnoxious about their mental illness?

The irony of LBGTA rights is that it ends up hurting women.

Normal girls are pushed out of the homecoming queen roll by admin and politically correct kids who elect a homosexual or “transgender”.

“Transgenders”, even if they’ve had the plumbing altered”, retain the superior musculature of their male development. They overwhelmingly beat women in women’s sports. This is absolutely the case if a male who says he identifies as female competes. The women lose to a non-woman, in an unfair competition.

Promotion of homosexuality puts “breeders” in a second class status, hurting women who have children more than fathers.

The idealization of same sex love demotes love between the sexes. From Greek culture to modern Islam (where pederasty is acceptable), women become property or chattel, always less than the love between male equals.

I’ll take perennial winner Annie Thorisdottir from Iceland, please, or Stacie Tovar. The competitor you pictured is from California and is always battling for one of the top three or four positions. I can’t remember her name.

Kristin Clever. She goes by "Kris," of course. She's a hell of a competitor, and she's a big-time lesbian, but at least she identifies as a female, regardless.

I'm more on the Camille Leblanc-Bazinet train personally...

As to this thing's lawsuit--he's gonna lose this handily. CrossFit is all about comparing apples to apples in order to maintain data integrity with respect to performance capabilities. Allowing this guy to compete against girls will throw the integrity of the experiment all out of whack. Glassman and Castro would likely burn the place to the ground before they'd allow that to happen.
