The Gender Debate


Recommended Posts

The sporting bodies have started ruling on transgender athletes in women’s competitions.

Can only agree with it tbh, the sporting advantages of male puberty/testosterone are just too numerous. The open category should gain traction, allowing anyone to compete.

The open category should be restricted to transphobes and fit as f**k trans athletes, just for the chortles

*I do realise that it wouldn't be very open

Great news from the sporting bodies. I used to be completely disinterested in this issue but the trans extremists have irritated me to the degree that I now want them to lose the culture war. And they now are losing. 

It’s very pleasing.

You are a weapons-grade weirdo.

60% of trans young people self harm amd 40% have considered suicide in the past 12 months.

They are the group at the highest risk for violence and sexual violence.

25% of trans people have experienced homelessness 

Sorry to hear you were irritated though.

I believe all who suffer with mental illness should receive help and support from the health services.

FTFY.

Some think otherwise but self harming and suicide is a certain sign of mental illness.

I don't think you know what the difference between mental illness and mental wellbeing is.

However, given your position it makes your post all the worse that you take pleasure in a group you deem as having mental illness "losing the culture war". What do you think the impact of losing will have on these people and why are you so small that you would take pleasure from it?

I know you are edgelording but maybe go for a walk and think about whether or not this is the best way to spend your time.

In fairness, I'm not the one here who's spent months and months posting pathetic, borderline creepy nonsense about trans folk.

Back under your rock m9.

Who’s the poster who’s been doing that?

I’m happy with the current direction of travel in the debate. 

I really, honestly, truly don’t care about the trans topic in and of itself. It’s just not interesting to me. I just haven’t liked the tactics of the trans extremists. 

I am sure a nice common ground can be found where everyone has equal rights and responsibilities.

The sport thing is tricky but maybe looking at if from the perspective of specific medical histories giving an unfair advantage, rather than focusing on gender, could be the way to approach it
