Transgender player attains college basketball first
Chicago Sun-Times ^ | 12/14/2012

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — The women’s basketball team at Mission College expected the bleachers to be full and the hecklers ready when its newest player made her home court debut.

In the days leading up to the game, people had plenty to say about 6-foot-6-inch, 220-pound Gabrielle Ludwig, who joined the Lady Saints as a mid-season walk-on and became, according to advocates, the first transsexual to play college hoops as both a man and a woman.

Sorry for a "register to read" article. I would never register with no Chicago rag! However, the captions on the pics give a lot of amazing information: it is 50 years old, has played college basketball before, and it is a Navy veteran and a father. Now it claims to be transgender and is in the girls team!

I have a question for the NCAA: since it has played before, is it still eligible? Does changing genders increase the number of years of eligibility? Y'all are opening a can of worms here!

BTW, the poll question on this NY Daily News article“Do you think that a transgender player should be allowed to play on a women’s basketball team?”—stands at 59% No, 35% Yes and 6% Not Sure ATTOW.

If it has a Y chromosome then it is a male. If it has a sexual desire then keep it to itself and get on with life.

There is no mushy middle and a woman’s sport has no room for males nor does a man’s sport have room for females.

I forgot about that movie and how twisted things were in it—the majority of which would be considered “normal” by most libs today.

My daughter would no longer be on the team or enrolled in the school. 20 year old girls showering with a 50 year old man?!!!! This is no different than Sandusky and his antics at Penn State.

Is this a dude trying to be a chick or a chick trying to be a dude? Whichever, it ain’t working!

It’s bad enough that men want to mutilate themselves to look like women and live under the delusion that they are women (and vv). Why are our children being forced to go along with their delusion?

He may be “trangendered” but he still looks like a man. It’s a man, dude!

Under California law, it was able to apply for a new "It's A Baby Girl!" birth certificate once the gender change was deemed complete.

That reset the eligibility clock, at least for the division of NCAA sports in which it plays.

As long as they don't play "shirts vs. skins".

I’m sorry. If your DNA includes a Y chromosome, you have no business on a girls team.

Beyond that, this is nothing but pure societal insanity, yet another indication of things gone badly wrong.
