    Transgender female cyclist places first against biological women in meet

    Transgender female cyclist places first against biological women in meet: 'I'm a WORLD CHAMPION
    .
    Transgender cyclist Rachel McKinnon — a biological male — placed first in a female cycling world championship competition Saturday.
    .
    For 26 years, this ban kept billions in the black market
    .
    McKinnon won the sprint final at the 2018 UCI Masters Track Cycling World Championships in Los Angeles, besting Carolien Van Herrikhuyzen of the Netherlands and Jennifer Wagner of the United States. (The race results page shows the age bracket as 35-44, but the previous menu displays 35-39 as the age range.)
    .
    An assistant philosophy professor at the College of Charleston in South Carolina, McKinnon (center, wearing gold medal) announced the victory on Twitter:

    .
    “First transgender woman world champion…ever,” McKinnon wrote Sunday after noting the previous day, "Sooooo...I'm a WORLD CHAMPION."
    .
    Backlash commences
    After McKinnon won the championship, outcry over the results commenced — and McKinnon hit back.
    .
    "Lots of transphobic bigots are responding to my world championship win saying that 'Next up, the paralympics.' Hey women, you realize that ALL of these people (many of them women) are comparing you to disabled people...right?" McKinnon tweeted. "Women = 'disabled men' they think. Wow. Offensive."
    .
    The cyclist added: "The offensive part is not 'being compared to disabled people' because disabled people are contemptible. No, that's super ableist. But effectively saying that women are 'disabled men' is both deeply misogynistic *and* ableist. Double-whammy. Bigots are horrible people."
    .
    One transgender cyclist doesn't agree with McKinnon
    A USA Today piece from January examines the opposing perspectives of McKinnon and another transgender cyclist Jillian Bearden:
    .
    Bearden agrees with the International Olympic Committee that naturally occurring testosterone gives transgender women an unfair advantage in competition against cisgender women, meaning women who were born female, while McKinnon believes subjecting trans women to testosterone blocking violates their human rights.
    .
    Bearden sees trans women who compete with unlimited levels of natural testosterone as dopers and cheaters while McKinnon says looking at the issue that way only furthers the oppression of transgender people.
    .
    “I’ve proven how powerful testosterone is from when I competed” as a male, Bearden told the paper. “That doesn’t mean specifically that the more testosterone you have the stronger you are, but the hormone provides a certain stamina that continues to charge you. It gives you that edge of pushing power.”
    .
    But McKinnon told USA Today, “This is bigger than sports and it’s about human rights. By catering to cisgender people’s views, that furthers transgender people’s oppression. When it comes to extending rights to a minority population, why would we ask the majority? I bet a lot of white people were pissed off when we desegregated sports racially and allowed black people. But they had to deal with it.”
    .
    Transgenders who've dominated the competition elsewhere
    .
    Terry Miller, a transgender high school sprinter born a male, crushed the competition in the female 100- and 200-meter dashes in the Connecticut state track and field championships in June.

    Beggs attempted to wrestle against males, but the state rules require athletes to compete on teams that reflect the gender on their birth certificates.

    You're also not a woman, this is complete bull sh!t and every natural woman in the race should boy cut the race and any other sporting event when something like this happens and then see what happens.
    The only easy day was yesterday
    Dedicated to my brother in law who died
    doing what he loved being a Navy SEAL

    My thoughts exactly. male vs female is biology, not psychology.

    So other women should "boy cut" the race when that's exactly what the tranny did to qualify to enter the race as a woman in the first place? LOL
    No one has ever heard me say that I "hate" cops, because I don't. This is why I will never trust one again though: You just never know...

    How would you feel about this if it happened to your daughter in the match?

    I don't have kids, male, female or anywhere in between.

    You do make me wonder though, what would it take for you to recognize and just get a giggle out of a joke? The "LOL" obviously didn't work, so what does it take with you?

    I'm not into boy cutting at all, so maybe I didn't get the joke of your post(s), but clearly, they are a joke.
