I see that 10% Joe has issued an Executive Order that any high-school boy who can put on a dress and sing a verse of “Man, I Feel Like A Woman” is legally entitled to take showers with high-school girls, because feelings.
Yeah, what could possibly go wrong with that? I mean, no teenaged boy, all of whom are the unfortunate victims of chronic testosterone poisoning, would ever dream of misusing such a rule, amiright?
Quid Pro Joe also said that you can’t keep “transwomen” from competing in women’s sports, subject to the rules of the various governing bodies. I’ll return to this question in a moment.
I see that currently, in addition to “transgender” people being able to decide what sex they are, we have “transracial” people who are able to decide what race they are, and “transabled” people who are able to decide if they are disabled or not. Its all based around them feeling like they are a different race, or feeling like they are disabled, or feeling that they are a different sex.
Not kidding about the “transabled”, by the way. See here for a discussion of the latest wokeness. This woman, for example, is perfectly healthy … but she FEELZ disabled …
This all reminds me of the old joke, viz:
How many legs does a cow have if you call a tail a leg?
Now, let me be clear about a couple of things.
First, if a man decides to cut off his marital tackle, purchase a pair of DD breasts, and take hormones, guess what? It doesn’t magically turn him into a woman. It turns him in to a castrato with a funny chest and a drug habit, which is not a bad thing, but it can’t make him a woman. Biology roolz.
Now, I have absolutely no problem with some adult doing that. Their body, their choice. I have a neighbor, we’d been friends for 20 years when he went under the knife. Been 20 years since then, we’re still friends. However, neither he nor I is under the illusion that he’s a woman. He feels better about himself after the change, and I say more power to him and wish him all the best.
This is fine as long as it’s not done for personal gain. Unfortunately, far too often these days it is for personal gain. For example, in the UK and parts of the US, if a man convicted of a crime says he’s a woman, regardless of the state of his genitalia, he can force the government to put him into a women’s prison.
Now, here’s a test to see if, unlike Basement Joe, you understand men and women. What bad thing might possibly happen if you put men into women’s prisons?
Yep, you’re right. Women prisoners get raped. See, e.g., Seven sex attacks in women’s jails by transgender convicts. Gosh, that’s totally unexpected and unpredictable. Here’s one of those charming UK “transwomen”:
And what will happen if we let high-school boys compete in girl’s sports, as 10% Joe has just ordered? Well, here’s a Connecticut high-school “girls” track champion.
For those of you with daughters, that’s who they can look forward to competing with. Bigger stronger boys. Yeah, that’s totally fair.
Now, when I started researching this question, I knew that there were inherent differences between men and women in sports. The first thing I looked at was the speed of professional tennis serves. Sabine Lisicki just broke Venus Williams’ women’s record, with a serve speed of 131 mph (211 kmph).
How does this compare to the men’s record? Sam Groth has the record at 164 mph (263 kmph). And although I can’t find a comprehensive list, the 35th fastest men’s serve speed is far above the women’s record at 143 mph (230 kmph).
Frustrated by the lack of tennis data, I decided to look at times in the 100 metre sprint. The record time for women is by the amazing Florence Griffith-Joyner. FloJo’s record time of 10.49 seconds has stood since 1988, one of the longest-standing records in sports. Here she is, an awesome athlete at the peak of her form, with her trademark long fingernails, after setting an Olympic record in the 200 metre sprint.
And how does that compare to the men’s records? There, we do have complete data. And to my great surprise, I found there have been no less than 5,731 men who have run faster times than FloJo’s women’s record time. I say again, there are 5,731 men who could have beaten Florence Griffith-Joyner on her best day.
And those are the senior (adult) men’s records. In addition, there are no less than 157 high-school boys who have run faster times than FloJo at her finest.
Look, folks, you can fool all of the people some of the time … but you can’t fool nature.
Here’s the tragedy. If Dementia Joe’s Imperial Edict About Men Pretending To Be Women is allowed to stand, then women will never win again. High-school boys will grind FloJo’s astounding accomplishment into the dust, and some man will be crowned as the World’s Fastest “Woman”.
Here is the bottom line.
Girls and women deserve testosterone-free showers, dressing rooms, bathrooms, domestic violence shelters, jails, and sports facilities.
Those are NOT places for men, whether or not they’ve cut off their johnsons, bought new chests, or taken up drugs.
For those who would accuse me of lacking compassion for the trans folks, I would counter that they not only lack compassion for women, they are determined to erase the historical and modern records, rights, and privileges properly accruing to women.
And for every Democrat who voted for Joe Biden … the only thing I can do is shake my head and wonder how you square your conscience with destroying the hopes and violating the privacy of your daughters.
Gotta say … this lunacy turns my stomach.
My best to all alike,
PS—Oh, right, I didn’t finish the old joke, which was:
How many legs does a cow have if you call a tail a leg?
The answer is:
Four, because calling a tail a leg doesn’t make it a leg.
