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.

Raging hormones, apparently.
Wow. Who do I want to win that lawsuit. Hard to say.
is legally recognized in the state of California as a woman
the “recognizor” has serious perceptual issues.
let the “injured party” sue the state of California
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.
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.
on the wall
who’s the toughest girl of all?
Maybe they can have a drag race?
It is still a he, though I understand why males would want to disown it.
should be Choppedoff Johnson
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.
how about woman like Chaz Bono? as Rush calls it, they get an “addadictome”.
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.
Expect a quick progression through each “victim” group... next week will be pedophiles.
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.
