This should serve as a wake up call to liberals. Prioritize what matters to you most and push those issues or conservatives really will eat you alive.

Sort of false Tor, Lea would be allowed to compete in men's swimming competition.

So technically trans people are allowed in the Olympics.

Why?

I've never once heard Conservatives talk about the importance of the Olympics.

And they still aren't.

They're still talking about how awful transgender people are.

The Olympics is just an excuse.

Yes, Snoofy, we are all supposed to have a long pedigree of fighting against the thing that has just become an issue.

I'm sure all the things you argue as right or wrong you have long history of advocating for or against.

It's possible to recognize right and wrong and apply ones values to it as the issue becomes more of an issue in society. You know you can't rationally argue the liberal position on this so you hand wave away those that take issue with it.

KWRX25 I don't have a problem with "Transsexual denied entry to Olympics"

I also don't have a problem with sports that do allow it. I think it's their business, not mine.

I don't think it's necessary for me or my political party to White Knight for women in sports.

Thirty years ago, the people white knighting to protect women from trans competition were lamenting how ridiculous it was to have to spend all this money on women's sports in the first place.

And there were less than supportive comments about USWNT soccer in recent years, from Deplorables.

So we don't really believe you care about supporting women's sports.

People having genders and pronouns isn't going away.

Also, let me get this straight... ignorant people in the minority said dumb stuff against women's soccer over a political stance... and that removes everyone elses right to advocate for women? How the f0k is that supposed to be a good idea?

A hundred years ago the governing bodies of baseball said black men couldn't play... Would you have just said well I'll trust the governing body of that sport?

It shows they aren't really advocating for women.

They are advocating against trans people existing openly and freely in society.

Oh please. It's conservatives who are advocating for women to be able to maintain their women only spaces. It's progressives who are telling them they have to allow males into these spaces and to shut up and seek counseling if they object. It's conservatives who are honoring Title IX and are trying to protect women's sports and its progressives who are telling them to shut up and compete against Heather Swanson.

You really need to drop your holier than thou attitude.

It was progressives who not only told women who objected to sharing locker room space with Lia Thomas to seek counseling for their bigotry but were also threatened with cancel culture retribution if they publicly spoke out against it.

the years that followed in the 1980s, 1990s and early 2000s (before DeSantis, now in his early 40s, was on the scene), Title IX became a focal point for conservatives who felt that equal opportunity protections for women athletes, rather than being a cause of celebration, was in fact robbing men of their opportunities. The pages of conservative magazines like National Review were full of articles attacking the law as an affirmative action program that harmed male athletes. As Kathryn Jean Lopez wrote for National Review in 2002, in a review of the anti-Title IX book "Tilting the Playing Field," "Title IX...leads to a clearly unjust result. Women today have the upper hand in just about every area of education -- except sports, so feminists are now demanding special privileges in that area as well."
Nor was Title IX the only site of contention. As recently as the last few years, when soccer's US Women's National Team began calling for equal pay, the right had nothing but mockery. The idea that women should not only have equal opportunity but equal pay seemed laughable. Never mind that the women's team had a better record and brought in more revenue than the men's team. Were they worth more, the market would have already paid them more. As right-wing radio host Rush Limbaugh put it in 2019, "It may sound cruel, it may sound unfair, but the marketplace is the marketplace."
It was only once the right realized women's sports could be a useful cudgel in anti-trans politics -- nicely packaged as a rallying cry on behalf of America's daughters -- that they began to argue that this long fight for equality was, in fact, an honorable struggle, and that access to sports was key to women's ability to thrive in both high school and collegiate settings.

#24. I just read through the entirety of that op ed. what a joke. It was a straw man screed and the hyper links she provided didn't prove her arguments in any way.

Everything I've said is easily provable and on the record. This is nothing but gaslighting.

Progressives find themselves in the impossible position of trying to pretend to be pro women while at the same time supporting this absolute nonsense.

Progressives (nee "liberals") are the very same folks who gave rights to minorities and women when Republicans were fighting them tooth and nail.

I guess it depends on the definition of progressive vs conservative.

Broad brushing can get messy. Here is the crazy thing - decades ago it was so-called conservatives who wanted to ban a classic like Huck Finn. Today, it's so- called progressives.

Are you as riled up about actual problems?

Like the mentally ill guy who was able to buy guns and shoot up a kid's water park in the same Oakland county where a kid shot up a high school.

Y'all sure get riled up about nonsense when there are far more serious issues facing Americans today.

For a party that talks about the government staying out of people's personal lives, y'all win the prize for hypocrisy!

The science clearly indicates that the focus on trans participation in female sports is misplaced: Fair, competitive, and equitable women's athletics face many obstacles, but trans women aren't one of them.

For starters, consider the strikingly minuscule number of total trans athletes, let alone trans women competing in collegiate athletics: Out of the more than 500,000 athletes that compete in the National Collegiate Athletic Association, an estimated 4o are trans. That's less than 0.008 percent.

Though the NAIA has not released similar statistics for its 83,000 participants, we see no reason to expect the percentage to be meaningfully different.

Not even close. How many women had to compete against and share a locker room with Lia Thomas? Hundreds? At least. And that's one trans person. One. So, now you are all rationalizing that because not a huge number are affected then screw it - those who are can seem counseling, lose out on opportunities, give up their safe spaces, etc. and if they speak out? Those uppity bitches can deal with cancel retaliation.

This is insane.
