Just like countless other exercise fanatics, Chloie Jonsson wanted to test herself in a CrossFit strength competition. The increasingly popular fitness events culminate each summer with the crowning of the "Fittest Man and Woman on Earth."

But Jonsson, who is a transgender woman, was told she would have to register as a man.

I'll leave it to you to figure out which person is Jonsson.

Ain't modern life grand?

5,500 affiliated gyms

It was over 8,000 affiliates at last year's Games. It's over 10,000 now. Good fact-checking there.

I would be curious to hear Greg Glassman's stance on this issue. He's the creator/CEO of CrossFit, and he's also a die-hard libertarian. Here's where "let people do their own thing" crashes hard into the "level playing field" that is touted by CFHQ.

And, I'm pretty sure this person should be in a straight-jacket.

lol, that lawyer loves looking at himself with other (I take it “famous”) people. I guess that would seem impressive to shallow clients/creatures.

“Transgender woman”? No. A man with a psychological disorder.

she would have an unfair advantage competing against other women.

"Other" women?

It is so annoying and confusing to read these articles when these stenographers refer to a man as a woman, and vise versa.

Eunuchs. They just ain’t right in the head. Let’s forget about the first 20 years of his life being a testosterone boosted muscle mass development.

Let ‘em compete. Show the Ladies that even as girls, guys beat them hands down in physical competition.

If the competition is called “Fittest Man and Woman on Earth,” I’d think s/he would be uniquely qualified.

Since he’s now transgendered, he should only be eligible for the transgendered CrossFit competition.

I don’t know about the founder, but a lot of the CrossFit gyms are owned and run by very committed Christians. The thing that a lot of people get out of CrossFit is not only the physical aspect, but connections with other decent people.

Of course, as usual, some loony with a politically empowered sexual agenda has got to come in and break it up. Just like Scouting, which gays have managed to nearly kill.

You’re absolutely right, but the leftists stand no chance of central control on this one. CFHQ could disappear tomorrow and those 10,000 boxes will still be there with a slight name change.

You got a point there. And let the female-to-male types compete in the men's competition - if they dare. I would love to see that.

This is all about people seeking attention. They are counting on us to get all riled up so they can declare that we are "intolerant" and "hateful."

But what if we didn't pay it any attention at all? Let these natural born males enter the women's competitions and start dominating them. At some point, it will be the women who will say "enough is enough" and start taking some action. Then they can be branded as intolerant and hateful.

OMG that is a LOT of tats.......

It is almost like walking around with a billboard that says

“LOOK AT ME I AM A FREAK!!!”

No wonder this creature was red tagged by the CrossFit people....

This creature could have gotten through the registration with nary a eyebrow raised had it not looked like a tattooed circus freak.... Also probably gives itself away when it opens it’s mouth with a deep truck driver voice....

I think it’s disorder is less about “I’m trapped inthe wrong body” and more like “Look at ME!!! I am an attention Whore!!!!!”

Yep, it does.

It can think whatever it wants. It’s nothing more than a genitally mutilated man. Nothing can ever be done to change that, no matter how much surgery and hormones are used.

Miss, you can let your hair grow, get fake boobs and have your member turned inward, but you still have male DNA and his musculature. That would give you an unfair advantage over female musculature.

Imagine the future horror when they have retrovirus therapies that can change a person’s DNA and full body medical cellular 3-D printer as than can print someone an entirely new body minus a brain....

Those techs would be used to save many lives but they would also be used by people wanting to change genders by dumping their brain in a newly printed opposite gendered printed body and taking a retrovirus to reprogram their brain cells chromosomes and nano-machines to manipulate the physical areas of the brain to match the other gender...

That would be scary as HELL!!!

I’m with you. An awful lot of the competitors are lesbians, anyway. It was always that way in high school—so many of the really great athletes turned out later to be lesbian…and wanted to become high school gym teachers, massage therapists and owners of goat farms...

I think about the LBGTA creating a lot of enemies this way, in ways they don’t fathom.
The school that picks a homosexual male couple as king and queen, denying all the girls in the school a chance to be homecoming queen.
The androgynous male model Andrej Pejic is not only modeling women’s clothes, but even starred in a bridal show, the pinnacle of the fashion industry. For decades, women have starved themselves to look like the adolescent boys the gay fashion designers idealized - now untold numbers are kicked out of women’s fashion because an effeminate man is held up as the standard for women’s beauty.
The schools letting boys who identify as girls compete in the girls’ teams means those girls are denied personal wins AND - theoretically - women’s athletic scholarships if it keeps up.

I think you are absolutely 100% correct. If we give the homosexual activists enough rope, they will hang themselves without our help.

I say let them continue to put feminized boys up for homecoming queen, make them fashion models for women's clothing and then enter them into women's athletic events, etc.

It will only be a matter of time before the women say "enough is enough" and start to take action on their own to stop this madness.

Stop giving these homosexual activists the opportunity to to claim victim status and paint conservatives as "hateful and intolerant." Sometimes indifference can be the most powerful weapon of all.

Do you know many people in their 20s? They’ve been brainwashed since kindergarten to accept this crap. My son is a huge CrossFit buff and I told him this story with the aside that I never would have seen something like this when I was his age. He simply said “Times change, Dad.”

Los Gatos transgender woman speaks out on fight to compete in CrossFit competition

Imagine a societal collapse. Medical care is nearly non-existent and that which is available comes at an extremely high premium on a truly "as needed" basis.

Imagine the supply of hormones, the only thing that sustains this illusion outside of severe mental illness suddenly drying up.

Women relying on such would go into menopause. A natural occurrence although in many cases it's onset would be severe.

However for those who never truly required the hormone out of any "natural" need? Imagine the slow, horrifc journey of their minds as their illusions crumble both physically and psychologically. The impact of the withdrawal followed by having to witness their bodies reverting back to God's original specifications? How do people believe they would deal with this?

Imagine one of these freaks demanding priority over a loved one who had a true, natural need for said hormones.

What do people think will happen when it comes down to choices like this?

How do people believe society, I mean thinking society in survival mode, would react?

Jonsson is not a woman. Jonsson is a man who has undergone genital mutilation, but remains a man due to XY chromosomes.

Rather and “male” or “female” competitions, instead name them XY and XX competitions. What if you are XXY or some other rare condition? Then you don’t compete in either category, sorry.

I’ve never seen more miserable people, they can’t hang out with a good majority of men, and a good majority of women do laugh at them.

I can imagine that suicide rate among post op trannies is very high.

Letting homosexual and transgendered men compete against women, where they are physically better developed, is discrimination against women.
That is why there was a separate men’s and women’s category in the first place. Because in men versus women, the men overwhelmingly beat them.

The only other “natural” option is becoming a eunuch.
I think Pakistan and India have a legal third gender just for this category.
Its adoption might or might not solve part of the LBGTA issue.
