The narcissism of immediately assuming everyone is going to pay attention to him is appalling. And it seems like a conflict of interest for him to be judging the same event that his own daughter is competing in.

Edit: Changed title of post for accuracy.

I agree with all your points. What a disgusting parent; instead of being proud of your child for going to an amazing international sporting event, he is "worried" that he might be too popular?!

How on earth did he get a job judging event his daughter is competing in? Just goes to show that TIMs will take any opportunity to be where they shouldn't.

The Olympics are such a joke at this point, not sure how anyone takes that shit seriously anymore, there's no more honour, integrity, excellence, just drugs, cheating, woke-pandering, and international one-upmanship from quarrelling nations (which leads to more cheating).

You're so right! It's like "Oh no, wouldn't it be SO TERRIBLE if ALL the attention was on ME, a mere stunning brave TW, and not on my daughter and the other athletes? Wouldn't it be just dreadful? Quick, I better make my existence known to the tabloid media, so that they definitely do NOT pay attention to ME, ME and ME! I will even send them a picture of myself with my wig, my fake tits and my veiny large man hands so that you all know who NOT to pay attention to!!!"

I feel sorry for the daughter

  1. It's a man.

  2. It's a fetishist who has no business flaunting his fetish at the Olympics. Judges (or for that matter participants) aren't supposed to publicize who likes to 69, who likes it doggy style, who likes that one weird trick from Cosmo, etc.

  3. He has no business judging an event his daughter competes in.

  4. At least the article doesn't call him a mother. Small mercies, I guess.

(Thank you for the [sic], Hildegard.)

she has arrived in Tokyo as a woman

One is reminded of Lou Reed... "Plucked his eyebrows on the way, shaved his legs and then he was a she"

I fear some have taken the song too literally

[–] Spott8ni 3 points (+3|-0)

Yes. I think of those lyrics often when I read this stuff. I also think of these Sex Pistols lyrics a lot: "No feelings, no feelings, no feelings for anybody else except for myself..."

Haha!

Sad how that song is probably considered tRaNsPhoBiC now. 🙄

[–] Coffeefiend 4 points (+4|-0)

Oh, for sure. I was thinking that “Lola” by the Kinks would also be considered “transphobic” now.

[–] SamuraiGhostCat 13 points (+13|-0)

Lol, “worried.” On the contrary. Every single TIM is narcissistic and an attention-seeker. Of course he’s not really worried; he’s thrilled.

Who gives a shit if a judge is a TIM? Not sure why the Mail even reported this, unless it's to highlight the narcissism.

Or have they realised that any article on trans participation in the Olympics gets clicks? Hopefully it's that. I want as many people as possible to know about this bullshit.

Daily Mail is pretty terfy and they like to publish/expose ridiculous TIM antics. I’m sure they’ve peaked at least 90% of their readers by now 😂

I thought the same but they moderate comments on trans articles and from what I've seen they often won't allow blatantly GC ones through. As for their readership, you do see some comments skeptical of things like acting like Ellen Page is a man, but a lot seem to have a 'live and let live' attitude towards trans people and there have been many supportive comments for Eddie Izzard which use she/her pronouns.

The title itself feels like a joke. If you don't want people to notice you, stop requesting interviews and stop writing articles about it.

If you are so worried about it, quit the job and let a real woman do it, asshole.

Critics of the new guidelines argue that women who went through puberty as males have a strength advantage, while those who support the change say other accepted biological variations, such as height, mean sport has never been a level playing field.

No such thing.

'I am six foot tall, I have huge hands, I used to play football,' said Daniels, pointing to a scar on one of her knees.

You got that right.

"My goal was always to be seen as a woman"

Well tough luck, dude. Also what's with the Spice Gril pose ? You're a middle aged male olympic judge FFS, not a female teen icon.

ETA : and poor girl, seriously. I apologize for my country. 🤦🏼‍♀️
