So you expect women to compete with men in sports like boxing and wrestling? That doesn't sound very reasonable.

Yes, I know that there can be only one truly best at something, in the Highlander sort of way, but this would result in no women competing for top awards in some sports and no men in the other. Picture selection for Olympic delegations where sports have no gender divisions.


It was a conversation with Walrus, not a statement of my belief. My belief is that in general transwomen should be barred from women's sports and all titles and records belonging to transwomen annulled.

Fallon Fox will love this idea. She can beat all the women she desires to a senseless bloody pulp as she seems so keen on women beating anyway.


(I'm really struggling to call her a she considering her appalling behaviour)


Then don't?
Why call a male person 'she'?

I do not understand why men, how ever they identify, were ever allowed in the women's category for any sport. I hope this assertion of fairness and common sese by FINA is followed by other sporting bodies.
