Would it be fair for her to fight a man in the same weight class as her?

Didn't shit all over it. Nickelodeon did that with "Barnyard" and "Back at the Barnyard" from 2006 to 2011, which revolves around a bull named Otis who has no horns but has udders. Otis generally lays waste to everything in each episode before having to fix it.

Did that man transition including taking female hormones and undergo surgery or are we all just being funny?

A trans woman is a woman. You wouldn't punish a cis woman for being biologically stronger.

One of my friends summed this up beautifully.

I'd also like to add my thoughts as someone who dedicates 6+ hours of week to a sport.

I've played roller derby with and against trans women and men. The trans women are more comparable to larger cis women in my sport than they are to men. They play like women because they ARE women. I'm talking various levels of transition, not just women who are fully transitioned.

I've also played with a scrappy thin girl who I thought played like a dude. Surprise! He came out as a trans male and now plays with the boys.

It's 2015. Let's just fucking move forward.

I want to fight a trans man in the ring now.

And I expect praise when I knock him the fuck out.

Is it odd if I'm only willing to fight trans men? That's how people stay undefeated. They pick and choose.

What Ronda Rousey was saying is a fact. There is no undoing puberty. There is a huge difference in bone and muscle density when it comes to gender. Yes, some of your physical features change. But this transgendered woman has a huge advantage. A male identifies as a female or vice versa and takes hormones and wants to be seen and treated as the opposite gender. It works on a social level, but not a gentinic. One person still has an XY chromosome, and with that a genetic edge in strenght.

I had no idea. I have no kids. Haven't watched Nick in at least 15 years. I literally thought "what is an animal that also has a weight disparity between genders and can easily find a reference I can cite that isn't Wikipedia."

After all, it was 3 or 4 am when I posted. Fuck me, this is what happens when I run out of weed and liquor before payday!!!
