This person is 43 years old.

Boaz,

Please explain how this is any of your business.

Thanks.

Please explain how this is any of your business.

Because it's truth, Snoofy. This is a 43 year old man competing against women. Period.

He couldnt cut it in mens sports, so he decides to go compete in the women's league. That's not fair to born women.

Period.

So when I think something isn't fair, it becomes my business?

Because I don't think it's fair that black people are poorer than white people.

"That's not fair to born women."

Isn't this up to women to fix, the same way it's up to blacks to fix their high school dropout unwed mother father in prison trash ghetto black "culture?"

Explain yourself.

Shut the ---- up Snoofy.

You are really jumping through hoops to be a troll today..

If you cant understand why someone who was a man for the first 38 years of his life shouldnt be competing against born women, I cant help your dumb ass.

Now that boaz has explained why this is now his business, the only question is what is boaz going to do about it, (sometimes called taking care of busyness)?

My guess is to just pound sand here on the DR, cause you know, libz or something

I'm with Boaz on this one. Trannies are cheaters in women's sports. They can't cut it against the big boys so they "identify" female and dominate women's competitive sports. Shades of Andy Kaufman back in the day when he fought women as a man. What a loon!

I totally get where Boaz is coming from.

But it's not cheating if it's not breaking the rules.

Dumb answer. It's morally suspect at best.

My Cyber Nilla,

Hate the game, not the player, player!

Your beef is with the rules committee.

Take it up with them.

Would roids and performance drugs be ok if they made the necessary rule changes? It's a moral argument too.

I have a question: What if her nuts fall out of her suit while she's squatting. Would that be called a foul ball?

"It's a moral argument too."

No it isn't.

I love the Olympics. But not because of the International Olympics Committee.

And whether or not they allow transgender athletes isn't a tipping point for anyone here.

So shut up.

#16 We found our new "The Agony of Defeat" guy... er, girl.

Boaz, can you name a single weightlifter going to the Olympics without using a web search?

#17 | Posted by sitzkrieg at 2021-05-07 08:35 AM | Reply

No.

And also immaterial to the question.

#18 | Posted by boaz at 2021-05-07 08:52 AM | Reply

It's not a woman snoofy, it's a guy with cosmetic surgery. There is a difference on a chromosomal level between the sexes. Race and gender are just social constructs, so there is no reason to argue about them.

Snoofy,

"So when I think something isn't fair, it becomes my business?"

Haven't you pretty well shown you think everything is YOUR business regardless of the topic?

#20 | Posted by BillJohnson at 2021-05-07 08:16 PM | Reply

Snoofy,

"I totally get where Boaz is coming from."

So you agree this person should not be competing.

It's just the rule is wrong.

Good for you.

Oh wow I can't wait for the lawyers to reference south park.

What about all those East German "women" from the 80's?

#23 and that is why in some events they visually inspect --------.
