Now we come to the National Collegiate Athletic Association and its policy involving MTF and FTM "transgender students and I would say they have crossed the line of common sense. This is what the policy is.
- A trans male (female to male) student-athlete who has received a medical exception for treatment with testosterone for gender transition may compete on a men’s team but is no longer eligible to compete on a women’s team without changing the team status to a mixed team. A mixed team is eligible only for men’s championships.
- A trans female (male to female) student-athlete being treated with testosterone suppression medication for gender transition may continue to compete on a men’s team but may not compete on a women’s team without changing it to a mixed team status until completing one calendar year of documented testosterone-suppression treatment.
Development of the new policies was aided in part by a report from the National Center on Lesbian Rights and the Women’s Sports Foundation last October that provided guidance on how colleges and universities should accommodate the interests of student-athletes who have transitioned or are transitioning from one gender to another.
Co-authored by the National Center for Lesbian Rights’ Director of the Sports Project Helen Carroll and GLESN (Gay, Lesbian dn Straight Education Network) project director Pat Griffin, who has overseen educational efforts for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender issues in sports for the Women’s Sports Foundation, the report stresses that any transgender student-athlete “should be allowed to participate in any gender-segregated sports activity so long as that athlete’s use of hormone therapy, if any, is consistent with the national governing body’s existing policies on banned medications.”
Mothers and fathers beware but a male with a penis may soon be playing sports as a girl with your gifted young daughters whether you like it or not. One year on testosterone blockers is insufficient considering the process for the two organizations mentioned above require approx 4 years given pre SRS treatment.
It takes considerably longer for a college age MTF individual to lose their strength and maleness than one year on blockers. It is the estrogen that feminizes the male and causes the softening of the body yet this is ABSOLUTELY not a requirement. One year on blockers and Michael Spitz could be on your female swim team. Lord how compelling that is.
Just think about basketball. One year on blockers and the all-world freshman sensation Anthony Davis could play for the Kentucky Women's program. What chance would the incredible Brittney Griner have against Ms. Davis. I am not suggesting this as a possibility because Mr Davis is about to be the #1 pick in the NBA draft and is certainly not transgender.
Now this would surely have been an option for Lindsey Walker The World's Tallest Transsexual who played college basketball as a man. I am sure Lindsey would have been a superstar as a collegiate female basketball player with only one year on blockers. I am sure it is highly unpleasant being a 7 foot transsexual and I certainly feel for Lindsey and support her but her on one year of blockers would make Brittney Griner look like a nothing because men have good verticals and most women do not. In fact Brittney has difficulty dunking although she can. I doubt Lindsey has trouble or had trouble dunking in college.
The real question is why would the NCAA do this and what the fuck were they thinking when one considers the Olympic position which is reasonable and proper? You can tell just by the wording. The IOC uses transsexual and the NCAA uses trans and transgender and reading farther down one can see who had the influence.
The question I have is how do you handle the locker room when one player is physically male and the others are female? Another question is would a collegiate coach in a female sport actually recruit and play someone like this? I do not believe they would but if they have open tryouts, most do, they would be hard pressed to deny a Lindsey Walker as a basketball player. If the NCAA followed the OIC and the USGA conditions I would support the NCAA but I cannot and I realize I am just a pimple on life's ass but I will have my say.
Personally I believe there would be outrage and a horrible backlash even if the kid had followed the IOC protocol because the transgender have so clouded what is and what is not female people would be scared. If someone tried to play using the current NCAA protocol I am sure opponents would be outraged and I am sure any girl that possibly lost a scholarship to a man in a dress would be really pissed off.
It has always been tough for women's sports in college and women were discriminated against openly until Prop 9 came into being. Now it seems men that are still men physically want to invade women's sports in college. I have two granddaughters that are very athletic and headed to college and will play sports. I would be outraged if the above happened and I cannot see how other parents would be outraged. It would be worse if they gave the individual a scholarship currently set aside for a girl.
I really doubt a transsexual would get involved with this but I could be wrong. I am sure eventually some transgender nitwit will do it and when that day comes there will be a big backlash. It is not the same for a FTM because the strength advantage goes to men but it is and always will be a strength advantage for a MTF if there time on blockers and even estrogen is short term. If they work out the muscle mass will not dissipate quickly. Eventually they will be similar to women but not for quite a while.
The world has gone crazy. Now our daughters will have to play men in sports and support them as female when they are not. O will watch with great interest for the first case that tests this ruling by the NCAA which has again shown it is per usual out of touch with reality.
