    If this is true, it's tough to argue against the decision.

    The Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) has issued some changes, as well.

    https://www.bicycling.com/news/a40320907/uci-transgender-policy-2022/

    The UCI Announces Changes to Its Policy on Transgender Athletes
    CYCLING’S INTERNATIONAL GOVERNING BODY EXTENDS TRANSITION TIME AND LOWERS TESTOSTERONE THRESHOLD FOR COMPETITION.

    On June 16, the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) adjusted its racing and competition policy for transgender athletes. The new regulations were outlined quietly in a press release and will go into effect on July 1.

    The key changes are two-fold. First, the transition period on low testosterone has been extended to 24 months from the previous 12-month period. Second, the UCI has halved the maximum permitted plasma testosterone level from 5 nmol/L to 2.5 nmol/L..............

    So they won't qualify as women if they got the transition after the age of 12?

    As I've always said, if society says they are women, they should be able to compete in women's sports. These "IF ANDS" only confuses the issue even more.

    Disagree. Sports classifications should be based on measurables.

    Social acceptance and openness have nothing to do with competition in sports and it would be a mistake to mix the two.

    As long as anybody who can naturally compete is allowed at the highest level, classifications at lower levels should be determined by the sport.

    Then they are second class citizens then in their gender.

    Society can't tell us:
    • This transgender person is a woman
    • She should use the women's room
    • We should refer to her as a woman
    • Its a hate crime if you misgender this woman
    • She should have all rights that a woman should have
    • Sports? Nah, its unfair to women for her to compete as a woman
    Mixed messages and confusion.

    Society doesn't determine sports classifications and it should not. Nobody who can naturally qualify should be banned from playing at the highest level (or an open level). And I don't know of any sport which disallows this.

    It makes no sense to confuse societal rights with sports classications... This comes off as a dishonest argument, IMO. People trying to push their own hangups off on others.

    I don't know much about swimming, so I don't know where FINA ranks. But my understanding is that UCI is the top level in cycling.

    Warner Media and Human Rights Campaign collaborated on a film Let Us Play, in which young trans and non-binary athletes discuss importance of sports to them. View at hrc.im/letusplay.

    I think men should be able to compete with women as long as they've had their genitals removed and are getting estrogen injections.

    Data Finds Republicans are Obsessed with Searching for Transgender Porn


    Closet Cases – Republicans secretly love what they publicly hate

    So far in 2022, more than 300 anti-LGBT bills have been proposed across 36 states – at least one third of which are directed at trans youth. This surge, especially in anti-trans legislation from Republicans, stands in stark contrast to a startling fact.

    Republicans love transgender porn, A LOT.

    With more than 4.7 Million transgender porn related Google searches each month (per Ahrefs.com), do Republicans represent those searching most? The answer seems to be a clear YES.

    In fact, the more Republican they are, the more they seem to like it. (see below)

    To understand the Republicans’ love for transgender related porn, we scraped daily Google search trend data from June 1, 2022 to June 19, 2022, segmented by DMA (metro area) and compared search volume to both 2020 election voting trends, and public opinions about LGBT rights.

    The data tells a tragic tale of self-loathing closet cases, Republicans who privately get off sexually to trans folks, while publicly trying to remove trans peoples’ rights and stoking hate against them.

    Lets get into it...





    Who is Most Obsessed With Searching for Trans Porn?
    The map visualizations below shows the popularity of the 10 highest volume Transgender Porn related Google Searches, broken down by DMA (Metro Area/County).

    **Search terms for the list ranking include only: “shemale”, “tranny”, “femboy”, and “ladyboy”

    interesting that not a single west coast city or state is in the top 10 of either of those lists.

    Okay, smart guy. If you wanna talk about trans girls' junk, then I'll oblige you.

    First off, you can take pills instead of injecting, and your balls shrivel up on their own without the need to have them removed. I produce less testosterone than most cis women, and have for literally years now. I don't even need to tuck, because estrogen shrinks your dick so much. You couldn't find my balls with a map and GPS. My ass is fucking *juicy* now because I'm pumped up with enough progesterone to give birth. My hips have rotated, and my tits are so huge without any surgeries that I can't run without hitting my own chin.

    It's difficult as hell being a trans woman, but not for the reasons you think. Mostly it's about not being able to open jars and constantly being hit on by cute girls who work at coffee shops. I can't tell you how many phone numbers I've walked away with just by smiling at them and saying hi. I couldn't do sports if I wanted because I'm so busy juggling my four girlfriends I'm too exhausted from the amazing sex to even think about basketball anymore.

    But, if trans women want to compete in sports, they should be allowed to if they've been on estrogen two years. If cis men want to compete against women, then all they should have to do is get on estrogen for two years. I bet a good portion of them will be so happy with the estrogen they'll forget to stop taking it.

    This is funny and cute but a subset of porn, especially specific fetishes like trans porn and interracial porn, is actually about seeing attractive members of a group of people you find disgusting getting degraded so I'm not super surprised. Yes, probably some self-hating closet cases, but also just straight-up transphobes getting off to trans people getting degraded.

    We should segment all sports then by how long puberty is, because men who experience early and longer puberties than other men have a physical advantage. Maybe basketball can be segmented by height and football by weight?

    Also, if I had been given the opportunity to (a) start estrogen at 12, and (b) compete in girls' basketball in 9th grade because of that? I'd have done both in a *fucking heartbeat*. Trans women WANT TO BE WOMEN, they don't want to dominate women in sports. They just fucking want to be women. SO LET THEM.

    Transition regret rates are 1%, that's 10x lower than surgeries for knee replacement or cosmetic surgeries of any kind. 67% of people who de-transition retransition when they feel safer later. Most of why we wait or hide is because of politicians who hate us, families who don't support us, and friends we're afraid of losing. If that fear were gone? If treatment for our condition made available when we ask for it? THIS SPORTS SHIT WOULDN'T BE AN ISSUE.

    Yes, 1% of a million people is still 10,000 people.

    Also, don't say something like "don't we have an obligation to protect even 10,000 people?" because you're not saying we should give free housing to the homeless out of an obligation to protect them. Fuck off with this bad faith horseshit.
