I like this statement because we need to fight back against the "banned" narrative with simple, plain-language points. In this case, it's not being "banned" when you never had a right to access women's sports in the first place.

Women were actually banned from all sports in most places until very recently in history. But it's yet another female experience men are shamelessly appropriating.

Yeah, we worked tirelessly for generations to create women's leagues and secure equal funding, trans people are welcome to do that work and start trans leagues if they want to.

Men in women's sports is definitely one of those "I didn't think we needed to make a rule about this but scrotes gonna scrote I guess" issues.

It's so disgustingly manipulative because even the trans goons know damn well that normies are thinking of actual girls who want to be boys.

It's like saying "cheetahs UNFAIRLY BANNED from women's sports competition"

Right? Also they typically phrase it that trans people have been banned from ALL sports, which is ridiculous, even far right conservatives are not trying to ban TIMs from men's sports. They already have the equal right to participate in their sex category, just like the rest of us do. What they want is the special right to cheat, it's no different than a college athlete demanding to compete in the local middle school.

I like this too. I also prefer to say they are fighting to abolish women's teams, because it's true. If you allow men (including men who call themselves women or "other") on a team, it's not a women's team anymore, it's a unisex team.

They literally, unironically are campaigning to abolish women's sports and in fact all of women's spaces and rights. This is not an exaggeration.

Ironically, it's a pretty big self-own when they do the absurdly racist and backwards comparison to "Yeah originally white people didn't want black people in their spaces either". What did desegregation look like in the USA? We completely eliminated "blacks only" bathrooms, sports teams, etc so whites and blacks use the same ones. So if putting men on women's teams is to be likened to having black and white people on the same sports team then it's obvious: their goal is completely eliminating women's spaces.

Note: In case anyone reading this hasn't dealt with that godawful argument yet, the OTHER reason why it's a false analogy is because those black-only spaces were designed by whites (oppressors) to exclude blacks (oppressed group). Women's spaces were created by women (oppressed group) to give us a chance to participate in society without men (oppressors) interfering. **The purpose of the two types of segregation and the power structures involved are completely flipped, **which is why gender ideology is so perverse and effectively is a male supremacist movement-- it exists to portray men as victims.

If we are to make a race analogy (which I don't favor as most sex vs race analogies don't work tbh), then TIMs are much more like those huffy white people going "All lives matter" and demanding they be allowed into a minority only space created by members of the minority group themselves, such as a university's Black Scientists association or something like that.
