So he didn't feel safe playing against bodies larger than his own, but his teammates should? They really never empathize with women.

So he didn't feel safe playing against bodies larger than his own, but his teammates should?

You're giving him more credit than he deserves. He says "large bodies" not "larger bodies":

I didn't feel safe physically, since I was playing against large bodies as my own body was rapidly changing and losing muscle mass.

He means he he didn't feel safe playing against bodies his own size.

HIs total lack of empathy for women stuck with having to put up with selfish assholes like him makes me sick. He took advantage of women socialized to "be nice" and that's supposed to make this unfair situation ok? Fuck off.

I know right?

My favorite part is how the headline doesn't even bother /1/ to be performatively positive (like the now-ubiquitous claim that This Saved My Life® ), OR /2/ to acknowledge mister gurlo's purported teammates who purportedly support him all the way and are all his purported BFFs now.

nope!
"That's where I belong"
just /1/ unfiltered raw whole entitlement, and, /2/ me! me! me me me me memememememe! Other people don't exist!

This has to be the best line.

"The first couple of years during my transition were tough: During one particularly rough three-month period, I posed as a man at work while living my true identity outside it."

The horrors! For three whole months- nearly a lifetime - he kept his cross-dressing fetish confined to off-work hours instead of indulging it on the job, causing him unbearable suffering. Nobody know the troubles the tranz have seen.

Because of his VERY MALE entitlement and over-inflated sense of worth, now I don’t even want him on the men’s team. He can just sit in the bleachers and cry into his Juicy Couture handbag, like the cheating loser he is.

Throughout my transition, I remained active in my sport. I tried playing adult men's "beer league" hockey at first, but I didn't feel safe physically, since I was playing against large bodies as my own body was rapidly changing and losing muscle mass.

And playing in that league only added to my anxiety, since I didn't feel comfortable expressing my true identity in front of my [male] teammates. I was certain that my male teammates wouldn't accept my transition.

So he didn't even give the other blokes a chance to demonstrate their fealty to "diversity and inclusion" by allowing them to know and accept him. He sold them short from the get-go by deciding in his own head right off the bat that they'd never accept him, thus he never bothered being honest and open with them. In one act of mental gymnastics, he pre-judged them to be intolerant arseholes and conveniently let himself off the hook. So much for "authenticity" and "living your truth."

I felt like a complete outsider, as if I had something to hide every time I stepped in the locker room -- whether I was covering up the physical changes I was experiencing because of transitioning, or lying about my life off the ice.

News flash: hiding who you are and lying about yourself leads to social awkwardness and unease. It's impossible to feel at home with others when you are not at home with yourself.

I felt like a complete outsider, as if I had something to hide every time I stepped in the locker room -- whether I was covering up the physical changes I was experiencing because of transitioning, or lying about my life off the ice.

But in the ladies locker room he’s totally happy letting it all swing free! How charming.

He's lying about his fear of men. If he said "playing with the women feeds my fetish and give me a huge woody" then the answer would be something other than "Please, right this way, swing your front worm in the women's!" Can't have that.

I'll give him the benefit of the doubt—there's a decent chance he was afraid to play a rough physical sport against members of his own sex while suppressing his androgens, and that he was also afraid that his male teammates would shun him (or worse) if they learned that he indentified as a woman. The stereotype about hockey players is not that they are sensitive, progressive sorts.

The thing is that none of that matters. There wouldn't be any call to open up the women's team to a gender non-conforming gay man suppressing his androgens as treatment for prostate cancer. Female sports are for females, not for males who can't compete against the other males for whatever reason.

Hockey is such a contact sport. He should not be playing with women. He might give one a serious concussion or even brain damage while checking.

in that case i guess her brain just wasn't trying hard enough

Serious concussions cause brain damage though...

But yes, I agree. This is just putting women in danger. How do people (excluding TIMs, since they’re sociopaths) think this is okay?

When I played hockey on an all-women's team, checking was not allowed. Not sure if that's universal, though.

One recent study by the British Journal of Sports Medicine found that trans women in the US Air Force had only slightly faster running speeds and indistinguishable muscle mass compared to their cisgender peers after two years of hormones.

...except for that part where the conclusion of the actual study says,

However, transwomen still had a 12% faster run speed
[...]
transwomen had a 9% faster mean run speed after the 1 year period of testosterone suppression that is recommended by World Athletics for inclusion in women’s events.

"only slightly" 🤡🤡🤡

12% is the difference between a 5-minute mile and a 5:36 mile, js.
L ​ ​ ​ O ​ ​ ​ L

(Not sure what that 9% is supposed to mean. Maybe it means the 'recommended inclusion guideline' 🤮 is a 3% differential and this is just a careless rendering of '9 percentage points', which is not at all the same thing as '9 percent'.)

I love how all these studies completely missed the whole part where, you know, they can be trying less hard because they know
