Shemale Olympiad Equality!

New guidelines for Olympic competitions will now allow transgenders who are females pretending to be males to compete against men without restriction. It's tempting to write this off as entirely ideological without any realized consequences in actual competitions, since a reasonable working assumption may be that women can't compete with men in any Olympic competition at an elite level. But while there aren't any Olympic competitions that women are distinctly better at than men are, in things like equestrian competitions and archery, approximate sex parity can and has existed at the top. Perhaps yoganidrasana competitions can be introduced to the Olympics in 2020.

Far more remarkable is the declaration that it is permissible for males putatively identifying as females to compete in women's competitions. There is a testosterone restriction (for now), but sex reassignment surgery isn't even required.

Last June, I wrote:
What happens when the next Jenner comes along at, say, the 2016 Olympics? Granting for the sake of argument that what he identifies as now is what he has always felt himself to be, this next Jenner decides to compete in women's track competitions. He wins golds in everything he competes in, and sets several world records (for women) in the process. This new Jenner single-handedly has the capacity to destroy women's sports as the world knows it, at least in the parts of the world where World War T has been won. There is, of course, no reason that he'd be acting alone in this regard. Lots of biological men newly minted as women would flock after him, and the Ladybugs phenomenon would come to dominate everything.
Speaking of Jenner, his 400m time in 1976 is still faster than any woman, Olympiad or otherwise, has ever run the 400m in. This even though it wasn't the top time among men then and certainly isn't now.

If Jenner had identified as a woman in the seventies, you might imagine that he would hold the women's world records in just about everything he competed in. But of course there'd be a bunch of other males identifying as transgender women who'd be vying for those same world records, too. Once participants in physical competitions are no longer segregated by sex, males win everything, and the question of which gender each man identified as when he wins becomes little more than a semantic one, or akin to identifying who the best rushers in the NFC and AFC are.

I've long since given up on there ever being a "jumping the shark" moment for the risible absurdity of cultural Marxist beliefs. Don't fool yourself, tomorrow will be even more ridiculous than yesterday was.

This is already a problem in MMA (Mixed Marital Arts) where 'transgender' fighter Fallon Fox gave 'her' opponent a concussion and broken eye socket: http://thelibertarianrepublic.com/transgender-mma-fighter-destroys-female-opponent/

You almost have to feel sorry for the left. They win total crushing victories over the right. But they hardly have a chance to gloat before GNON shows up and whacks them on the skull with the baseball bat of reality. Socialist economic disasters, feminists worldwide on antidepressants, global warming alarmists stuck in blizzards, Baltimore homicides, loss of the left's favorite cities, humiliation of European governments.

Actually I don't almost feel sorry for the left, because they take us all along for endless rides to stupidtown.

Regarding this sports thing, I'm actually disappointed that the IOC doesn't go far enough. Women haven't a prayer in men's sports and men without T won't do that well either. If they properly opened things up, then a few dudebros could rack up as many medals in women's competitions as major nations, just for laughs.

If a chain smoking bum who couldn't break the top 100 in men's tennis could wax Venus and Serena in one afternoon then the comedic possibilities are endless.

Good! (knocks on wood, hoping for more comedy than disaster)

I don't know. I think a big part of Trump's rise is because things have jumped the shark in the eyes of more and more people. Even as recently as a couple of years ago, I would not have supported someone like him, believing that someone less offensive would be safer.

But now it is clear that to mock New York Times reporters is to do God's work. And people understand that humiliation of the left just might help save us.

Communism eventually failed not because of a victory from the right over Communism. The Soviet Union invaded and conquered territory after territory. America never invaded and won any Communist territory back.

Instead Communism became increasingly ridiculous to everyone living in it. Those least susceptible to political correctness today are the eastern bloc countries.

Time to give all those East German swimmers their medals!

William,

Indeed.

Dan,

Yes, and it's worth remembering that although there were people who thought communism would collapse in on itself, most people were taken by surprise just how abruptly it occurred (or at any rate seemed to occur) from the outside looking in. We can hope.

Let them. And we'll see if sex differences exist. It's illegal for men or women to take testosterone, but transgender can without impunity.

Let a transman compete against a real man, and when she loses, she'll complain. Let a transwoman compete against women and when he wins every competition, you'll see the women (rightfully) boycott. The Olympics are segregated to showcase the finest athletic ability of both sexes. Transgenders would take away that uniqueness because biological reality offends them.

I certainly hope the Olympics will not be hosted in a country intolerable to the LGBT - and we can find some enjoyment of the simpering gender trenders.

@William Zietler - Fallon Fox likes to twist science to fit his view. He says there are no differences in how men and women punch, yet beats female MMA fighters to a pulp. But with due respect, if he encountered one of those elite-commando female warriors, like Avivit Cohen, the outcome would be different.

To fit the bill, wouldn't it be amusing if someone went in blackface to fight him? After all, race is a social construct, too.
