Wow, and look at BBC specifying that it's only women's races they're banned from as opposed to "Trans athletes never allowed to play any game ever again. Four-year-old trans kids to receive punch in the face anytime they talk to a like-aged female soccer player" that they used to go with.

Over the past few months, they've been changing their tune over there. Looks like they miiiiiight be realizing the right side of history isn't going to be the one that castrated LGB and GNC kids.

700 angry reacts out of... 36.7K likes???

....Hey, Monty! Get your followers on THIS!

All those angry AGP’s logging into their sock accounts to show their distain of anything good happening for women 🤬😡😠😤.

What do they always say to us?

Cry more, die angry ✌🏻☮️✨🤸‍♀️

I stopped martial arts once I had to fight a male in a blackbelt womens division. Mostly from injuries. I'm really happy someone is finally making a stand here; I can only hope that contact sports are given this treatment next.

Was it because there was a lack of other women at the black belt level or was it because the instructors thought men and women could safely fight together?

Edit: I dropped out of a similar martial art in my youth because there were only two other girls in the class, and to be "fair" the instructor never put us together because he thought we would feel singled out. Instead I regularly got beaten up by boys and lost all interest in the sport.

The athletic differences between girls and boys are present throughout our entire lives. Little kids are NOT genderless miniature humans, they are female or male.

Not to mention the socialization aspect. Girls are taught to be respectful, take turns, and NOT try to deliberately hurt your sparring partner. Little boys are taught to cheat and destroy at the earliest opportunity.

My opponent was trans and like 6'2.

I understand fairness and needing to be better than an opponent at all costs is a responsibility that I have, and that personally, I strive everyone to ascertain, but it felt nearly impossible to reach them with their reach, and casual blows landed like hammerfall on my head.

Sparring with males? Totally fine. Up for the challenge since it's in the name of doing better and we're all on the same team. Losing a championship to one though and having everyone hail them as a hero though? Fuck that lmao.

Good. I hope the backlash keeps coming, and every single trans person and trans ally gets what's coming to them.

I’ve seen quite a few posts about this (I guess fb put me into the “TERF” algorithm) and have only seen a few people saying things like stop calling her a him, otherwise everyone seems quite pleased! The tides are turning, they went too far and the backlash was inevitable.

Out of curiosity, how much overlap are you seeing between ↑this↑ and similar increases in far-right, alt-right, and/or evangelical Christian content? (And are you in the U.S.?)

Not so far, however twitters TERF algorithm was 100% right wing/Christian and sometimes scary shit. I felt really uncomfortable sometimes because I’m a socialist, atheist and far left leaning and TERF twitter ain’t that!! So many bizarre, unfounded opinions occurring in a strange echo chamber of ignorance 😅😅

Did you notice it kinda sets a precedent to child transition?

This is the only thing that really concerns me about this entire thing - they will now rush to claim that medically transing children is going to be the only way they can 'live authentic lives', handly not really understanding that even from a young age that there's a difference between boys and girls, and that no amount of medical intervention is going to change the shape of a boy's pelvis.

And also, however nonsensical it is for anybody to “feel like” a woman (can you feel 6’2 when you’re 5’6? Can you feel blue eyed when your eyes are brown?) it’s extra extremely nonsensical for an actual small child to be told they can ‘tell’ what sex they’re meant to be.

And how many of those 700 didn't read the article and think it's akin to homophobia hating on gsy male swimmers or something? We know the average person has no idea what any of this stuff is, and they think it's "super duper" gay men being discriminated. I'd say half or more than half of 700.

Not surprising. The public, even in the countries most captured by wokeists, has alws overwhelmingly—by consistent margins of >85% to <10%, with a couple percentage points' worth of "No Response" responses (👀) rounding out the hundred.

I guess they're riding this futile part of the agenda harder and harder because "twaw" really IS supposed to be absolute and comprehensive, i.e., the insane lie-deology of erasing sex differences by making a confused cartoon bear face and being like sex differences? what's a sex differences? has to apply to ALL sex differences.
why are they attempting it on such a short timeline? when they KNOW—and have even written into TRA activist manuals—that "there is no foreseeable way to achieve majority agreement" even if they were to somehow win over every single one of the "persuadables" by like pure magic or some shit?

This is unwinnable for them, and they KNOW that. Why are they continuing to march their Light Brigade into the valley of death, with cannon to the left of them and cannon to the right? 🤷🏽‍♀️
Not that I'm complaining or anything here, but... up until very recently they've been disturbingly smart, in an evil and abjectly anti-democratic way, about their work flow and the order of steps to take—just look how INSANELY far this neo-Lysenkoism has gotten.

How is it possible that their first major and potentially catastrophic stumbling block is the single area where they KNOW they'll be handed a string of embarrassingly lopsided defeats?

It's WAY too stupid to be coming from the same cabal that's been completely evading all aspects of the democratic process for the better part of a decade now.

Makes me worry, is this all a complacency-building, happy ass distraction for the GC/earth human common sense side, from something soon to come that's going to be ((dare I even imagine how)) far worse than anything that's happened to date?
