Skip to comments.Now, The pushback against transanity is coming from the Left: You cannot win over Mother Nature

We all know that the best male athletes are faster and stronger than the best female athletes. This is Biology 101, not advanced Rocket Science. Still, it was striking for me to see the disparity between the fastest mile run by a man (3:43.3, by Hicham El El Guerrouj) and the fastest mile run by a woman (4:12.56 by Svetlana Masterkova). Thats quite a difference!
Already in 1965, Jim Ryun set a world record for high school students by running a mile in 3.55.3, a record that is 17 seconds faster than the top female athlete in the world has ever run.
What would happen if a top male runner identified as female? He would instantly shatter all female records. And that would be totally unfair to these women who have trained so hard and sacrificed so much for so many years.
Thats why its not surprising that female athletes, including Martina Navratilova, a prominent lesbian, and Sharron Davies, a British Olympic swimmer, have raised their voices to cry foul.
In response, Navratilova came under fierce attacks from others in the LGBTQ community, forcing her to backtrack from her initial comments and apologize for calling trans athletes cheats.
This prompted Piers Morgan, hardly a defender of the right and over the years a steady ally to gay activism, to come to her defense.
Speaking of Serena Williams, arguably the greatest womens tennis player of all time, he wrote, that its not sexist to say the top 1000 men would beat Serena its a cold, hard, statistical fact.
Oh, those pesky, facts! They simply dont go away.
He continued: Now imagine a scenario where a 25-year-old male player ranked say, No200 in the world, and earning around $100,000 a year, suddenly decides he wants to identify as female either for genuine transgender reasons or for duplicitous, fraudulent, cynically commercial reasons and now wishes to compete against women.
That player, if he underwent hormonal treatment to reduce his testosterone levels to the required levels, could spend the next 3/4 years playing as a woman on the womens tour.
He, now she, would instantly be the best female tennis player thats ever lived.
She would destroy Serena Williams, and every other woman player.
And thats why its no surprise that a March 10 headline on the UKs Telegraph announced, Two thirds of British public think it is cheating for women born male to compete in women's sport, says poll.
But theres more.
Radical feminists have raised their voices to protest the idea that a biological male who identifies as a woman is now legitimately female, devoting an entire book to the subject. The book is titled Female Erasure, with a foreword by feminist icon Germaine Greer.
She wrote, Men who adopt femininity may believe that they are achieving femaleness, but femaleness is a tougher destiny than they can know or guess. Femaleness is demanding and painful, whether at menarche, menstruation, childbed or menopause, and born women have no choice but to deal with it. . . . . Femininity is a de-sexed masquerade. Men can be as good at it and better than women, but that does not make them women.
Perhaps even more interesting is the fact that lesbian feminist Julia Beck testified before Congress against the gender identity provisions in the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). Meant to protect transgender people, these provisions actually act as a misogynistic trojan horse, undermining key protections for women and girls.
And Beck herself recalled facing threats of violence due to her opposition to transgender activism.
She said, People on the Left have tried to silence me by using threats and other tactics of intimidation, a kind of hatred that most lesbians would expect to receive from people on the Right. Ive been told to die in a fire, to get raped, and to choke on 'lady [expletive]' by members of the GBT community.
So, not only does the left turn on its own the moment one of its sacred cows is threatened, but those on the left with eyes to see have no choice but to speak up. Transanity is undoing their entire movement.
Thats why its not surprising that the influential gay journalist Andrew Sullivan has also raised his voice, stating, If you abandon biology in the matter of sex and gender altogether, you undermine the very meaning of homosexuality.
Indeed, he said, If you follow the current ideology of gender as entirely fluid, you actually subvert and undermine core arguments in defense of gay rights.
It seems, then, that transgender activism is undermining feminism, undermining the gay rights movement, and undermining common sense.
The unraveling is at hand. Mother Nature can be quite stubborn and dogmatic.
Always fun to watch when the left eats their own.
Second string men can be first string in women’s sports.
There won’t be any women’s sports if the insanity doesn’t stop.
In order for Trans politics to work, the women (who were men) have to be considered 100% women. 100%. They are not trans-women. They are women. There are is no man in them.
So they have to be able to compete against women because they are women in the eyes of the LGBT community.
The bigger, bloodier the battle, the better. It is a real treat to watch the left eat their own.
Sadly, cognitive dissonance reigns supreme among the left, so at no time will they ever question their leftist allegiance.
They are a fracturing, splintering mess of internal contradictions. The only thing that keeps them together is unified hatred for us.
Just wait until trans-women begin applying to Englieering school!
Really, the only recourse here is to add a third category into sports for those born of one sex but identify as another. For men to identify as a woman and then compete athletically is absolutely wrong for various biological reasons that bespeak male and female genetics.
Those of us consigned to the bottom level of the intersectional entitlement pyramid really don’t give a rip, to be blunt.
And the only one where this is a bad thing is "common sense". Undermine the others all day.
The "enemy of my enemy is my friend" only lasts so long .....
His fake tits might slow shim down.
Trans is a mental disease.
You are either xx or xy and no operation, not addadicktome nor lopadickoffame is going to change your sex nor gender.
Being queer is a sexual preference, being trans is insanity.
Trannys, cant hang with the men, rejected by the women.
This is going to be a big fracture-line in the Left. Women will NOT accept being pushed aside by pseudo-women.
A small clarification of what this is please?
I predict a coming Civil War on the Left.
A reference to a University in the USA that offers a BS in the field of Engineering,
Engineering school has set-asides and scholarships exclusively for women. It’s a blatant violation of Title IX but it exists.
I didn’t even see the ‘L’ in that word until you pointed it out. My brain just ‘ironed the wrinkles out’ so I could keep reading.
