LGBTQ Sports Community Calls MMA Transwoman "Bravest In History" For Fighting Females
This another case of unfair practices in the sporting world. Men should not play in women's leagues and women should not play in men's leagues. It is just a matter of biology. But you can't tell the LGBTQ world that, they don't seem to follow science-backed facts. So, of course, they praised a transwoman who is just beating almost everyone he gets in the ring with. An LGBTQ Sports writer Cyd Zeigler from Outsports claims that MMA fighting transwoman Fallon Fox is the bravest athlete in history. Since when is a guy beating on women brave?
"Fox came out as transgender in 2013 and was predictably criticized for attempting to compete in violent physical combat with women as a biological male who only identifies as a woman."
Fox has beaten almost everyone he got into the ring with. These women were being too nice allowing the fight to happen and one of Fox's competitors found out the hard way that it is by no means a fair fight.
"Fox defeated Tamikka Brents by TKO at 2:17 of the first round of their match. In addition to the damaged orbital bone that required seven staples, Brents received a concussion. In a post-fight interview this week, she told Whoa TV that "I've never felt so overpowered ever in my life."
“I’ve fought a lot of women and have never felt the strength that I felt in a fight as I did that night. I can’t answer whether it’s because [he] was born a man or not, because I’m not a doctor,” she stated. “I can only say, I’ve never felt so overpowered ever in my life, and I am an abnormally strong female in my own right. ”
His “grip was different,” she added. “I could usually move around in the clinch against...females but couldn’t move at all in Fox’s clinch.”
"Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) female champ Ronda Rousey told TMZ that while she would fight Fox, allowing transgender men to fight is "a case-by-case scenario."
"I feel like, if you already go through puberty as a man, that's something you can't really reverse," said Rousey, who said that it "would be fine" if a boy who was on hormone therapy to become a woman prior to puberty wanted to fight as a woman.
Because Fox had transgender surgery so late in life, however, Rousey said that he shouldn't fight women.
Likewise, last year, UFC announcer Joe Rogan made his opinion unambiguously and graphically clear, saying on his podcast that a transgendered man would "have all the bone structure that comes with” being a man. “You have bigger hands, you have bigger shoulder joints."
Why do people think this is fair? Fox has a totally different body makeup and identified as a man up until 2013. They should just come up with a transgender category otherwise it's really not fair on the women who have trained really hard to be the best in these female leagues.
