I'm sure scumhook would reply with something like " G'Day, Give a bloke a fair go and share those knockers on a thread so we can follow this walk about with you"

Myself, I would never stoop so low and wish to treat this BRCA1 gene discussion with the dignity it deserves and thus submit it should be shared on a private twitter feed.

You sure that's what she said about getting hit in the chest? I don't remember it that way at all. I just remember her pointing out that getting boobs is a disadvantage in fighting terms.

With all the talk about the MMA transgender discussion I wonder where the crew would fall on this topic.

A transgender man wants to be on the cover of Mens Health. He is leading in the votes right now and might make it. Is it okay when the gender competition goes from woman towards man instead of a man transitioned to a woman?

I'm fine with anyone being on the cover of anything. It's when people can get hurt is where there's an issue.

Anyone who sees a woman though should be pleased that there's finally a woman on the cover of that gay magazine.

I agree with Keith on this one no one going to get physically hurt. On the issue of my thoughts of it being same situation as the Fallon debate. Lets say a transgender male wanted to compete in the MMA. That's easy for me. Obviously it's up to him in that situation but I wouldn't want to watch him fight the natural males. There would b way to much of a disadvantage for him. I couldn't get into watching that.

Wait. Really? I thought this whole thing was about having a fair competition. My opinion wouldn't have changed if I had realized it was about safety, but my discussion points may have.

What?

What's the difference?

Yes, I care about a person with a man's body beating the shit out of women that don't have a choice if they want to compete.

Oh my goodness...

I'm sure you'd have been much more reasonable.

I never said you didn't care about ladies getting hurt, Keith. Come on.

There's a huge difference. That's why sports have rules for safety, and rules for... I guess morality?

Can I use roller derby as an example? Ok, thanks.

In roller derby we have a rule that states you can't hit someone in the back, in the knees, or above the shoulders. This is about skater safety. We also have a rule that states you can't gain relative position over someone while out of bounds. This is about having a fair game and has zero to do with the safety of the skaters.

Additionally, many of the comments I read in the other threads seemed specifically about fairness in competition.
