It seems odd to me that a man who feels like they're a woman should want to compete in quite hyper masculine sports.


Natalie Fahey (male to female) and Schuyler (female to male) are transgender collegiate swimmers. Victoria Smith (male to female) is a professional horse jockey. It is likely that we will see more such athletes in the near future. Of course, we all remember Renee Richards who transitioned from male to female in pro tennis which is also a skill, not power, sport.

The athletes you are crying about are women and are getting the legal protection everyone else enjoys under the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment. Not only are advocacy groups speaking up for them, the courts and sports administrators are as well.

It is. However, skill overrides power.

I seriously can't even with you.

So, according to this logic, the Top 500+ men tennis players are all more skillful than the best woman tennis player? Isn't this kinda insulting to women?

Predictably, your comments are getting dumber and dumber.

If it was strictly a power sport, Renee Richards would have won every tournament in the game. Despite her strength advantage, other players with greater skill overcame that advantage.

"Sometimes we've wondered if Martina actually knew what she was saying. Maybe it was her age or inexperience or something got lost in the translation. But I don't know. She comes out with something astounding and then just stares at you like, 'What did I say?' But then she'll have that glint in her eye."

That man setting fire to a woman has been twisted into a headline of a Woman setting fire to a person.

If you want men to wear “a dress" or do any thing at all non gender conforming - fine but I beg you, please do not let men get away with using YOUR KINDNESS to hide their sex when they are literally killing women.

I beg you please stop your kindness to gender non conforming men at the expense of women, have some kindness to women.

Do women not finally deserve this after two millennia of misogyny.

If you think this is one off or just a mistake by Miami Herald - I ask you how many one offs or mistakes will it take for you to reconsider your kindness?
