    Transgender Sports Another Slant

    I think your point about a lot of people complaining about this are people that are just looking to complain about trans people is right on the money. There are a lot of people in this debate that just find anything having to do with trans people and will automatically strongly take the “anti-trans” stance. But I don’t think that fact should shut down the conversation. The main problem I have with this debate is that the argument for letting trans girls compete against other girls is just disingenuous. We all know a girl can’t just take testosterone for a year and be on an even playing field with boys, so why do people pretend a boy can just take synthetic estrogen for a year and be on an even playing field with girls? It’s a dishonest argument that takes advantage of the left leaning people that predominantly make up the school district’s policy. They don’t want to be seen as being bigoted, so they allow trans girls to compete against other girls even though they know that they have an advantage. They make the rules for athletic competition based on public reaction rather then promoting fair competition. But the only people that care enough to strongly object are the parents of female athletes; people without kids will just fall on the side of the argument that their political party dictates, and parents with boys have more of a “not my problem” attitude. But of course those parents with female athletes are vastly outnumbered by social media and the MSM and are easily shouted down for being “intolerant” or “sore losers”. I do wonder how people will react though the first time a school gets two six foot plus trans girls on their girls basketball team and lays waste to their competition en route to a state title.

    Can’t be it, I heard that all you have to do is change the hormones and it’s a 100% absolutely level playing field. I’m sure any day now we will hear about a trans boy winning a state wrestling or track title.... aaaaaany day now.

    Internet question for Vegas people

    Thanks. I have only heard bad things about centurylink as well, but I was holding out hope I would get one positive response to justify making the switch. But it’s moot anyway, I brought it up to my wife and before I could say the price she said, “I don’t want centurylink I heard it phuckin sucks”. So, decision made lol.

    Funny how it’s only ever trans girls that have any athletic success.

    Internet question for Vegas people

    So I currently have Cox preferred which runs at 50mbps, and it works great. Centurylink has a 25mbps plan that is basically half the price though, so I was thinking about switching. I don’t want to overpay for internet, but I don’t want crappy internet either. Does anybody out here in Vegas have internet through centurylink? If so, how is it?

    Actually LV withdrew themselves from consideration.
  11. Seems like Monterey and San Benito counties should be a part of North California under this proposal.
  12. So just to be clear, this means that once a team knows it has no more then four games remaining on the schedule the floodgates open and all redshirts can play? If so, I like this new rule even more.

    Uruguay has won two World Cups.
  14. So does this mean that if that any freshman that plays in four games or less gets a redshirt? Or do they have to have a season ending injury?

    This WC CONCACAF had 3.5 bids, not 6. ¿So what is the relevance?
