trans women in sports

To reiterate: I'm not part of the rightie crowd saying that trans people are insane. Maybe some trans folks are, but the fact of being trans isn't what makes those particular people crazy. That said, I have expressed, many times before (here for example), my moral qualms about trans women in areas like women's sports—combat sports in particular, but women's sports in general. Ideally, there should simply be a trans league for trans people. I know the counterargument is that, if you create the trans league, you're opening the door for people who think "gender" means identifying as a sea snail or a baseball bat or a deity, opening the door for an infinity of leagues. I disagree. The sea snails, baseball bats, and deities are all clearly insane, and if you can't see that, then you're insane, too. So with my moral objections in mind, here are two videos for your delectation:

If you're trans, go with God. As long as you're not hurting anyone, you're fine. You do you. If, however, you're a biological male who hopes to make a name for himself by competing in women's sports, then you can burn in hell. The erasure of women by the trans community has become a serious issue. A lot of women seem unaware that anything is going on, but women who compete are now embroiled in this conflict (and it's not even just sports: trans women are taking over beauty contests). 

Don't steamroller women.
