As far as I can tell, the opening salvo in World War T was the long, celebratory article “A Pioneer, Reluctantly” in the New York Times on May 10, 2013. It was about transsexual mixed martial arts fighter Fallon Fox’s heroic struggle to overcome outdated prejudices and be allowed to beat up women for money.

Here’s an update on last night’s MMA bout from Knuckle Junkies:

In the co-main event, Fallon Fox and Tamikka Brents engaged quickly with Fox unleashing a brutal barrage of knees from the clench opening a nasty cut on the forehead of her opponent. Brents had no choice but to pull guard, and worked from an open guard before Fox passed and would eventually take the back. That is where Fox rained down punches and put the on the hurt Brents, who was unable to answer or improve her position and forced a stoppage to the fight.

Fox improves to 5-1 as a professional, and pleaded with the promoters from Invicta to give her a shot in her post-fight interview with Mylas Copeland. Brents drops to 2-2 and looked to have sizeable swelling on her left eye…

Ray Rice beating up his fiance (now wife) is the worst thing in the history of the world because Rice is a man, but Fox beating up women for money requires our You Go, Girl approbation because Fox is an ex-man.

  1. Could Ray Rice save his football career if he announces he’s always considered himself a woman? He could say he was thinking of going into MM, and that then-fiance Janay Palmer was his sparring partner. It’s worth a try.

    Fox improves to 5-1 as a professional
    He was beaten by a girl once?

    Maybe a bunch of other guys will see this and think it’s a great opportunity for them. Then “women’s” MMA turns into “tranny” MMA.

    The endgame would of course be every woman’s sport in the world dominated by tranny guys. Let’s see woman beat a pro male golfer turned tranny. He/she/it would win every tournament handily.

  7. OT Mr. Sailer but, with baseball winding down, it looks as if Derek Jeter’s career is coming to a close. Any thoughts? He had a longer and more consistent prime like a lot of black ballplayers; but not quite the speed or power that black star players usually have. [Though all things considered, especially for his position, he was no slouch in these areas.] Since he is famously has mixed raced parents, I’d be kinda curious in reading your thoughts. And for all your sports&race articles, I haven’t come across one that deals with black pitchers in MLB. Have I missed it?

I can recall many years ago when George Steinbrenner gave him a colossal contract and there were a lot of complaints from sabermetricians about Jeter's lack of power and his shortcomings as a shortstop. But the late Steinbrenner has been validated.

Charles Goodell as the “Christine Jorgensen of politics” and then press clips publicized shim demanding Agnew’s apology via telegram. Of course various people were getting called “Christine Jorgensen” around the clock — it was the style at the time; Walter Winchell referred to Adlai Stevenson by that vernacular at least once

    The sad business about Spiro Agnew is that his career and memory were destroyed by his cupidity (driven in part by having lived on short rations until he was nearly forty) and deficit of scruple. The man was a serious and somewhat quizzical student of the entropy he saw around him, had a talent for identifying sloppy thinking and humbug, and was blunt and acerbic enough to break the gaffe meter. He and Richard Nixon did not care for each other at all; Nixon found him threatening in private discussion and disdained him because his public remarks were not scripted bloviations the way Nixon's were.

    The victim’s injuries were a bit more than a ‘sizeable swelling’ – she posted on facebook that she had ‘A broken orbital, 7 head staples and a concussion’.

    and here’s a shot of the scene of the crime:

    Re. Fox having a loss to a woman, a lot of people feel that he/she deliberately underperformed in order to shake off some of the heat it was starting to draw.
    After I read about the bout I searched on twitter and I saw that Fox was drawing some support (presumably from other transexuals?) due to his opponent’s ‘transphobia’ before the bout.

  14. Come on Steve! Derek Jeter? He was obviously a darling of the sabermetric crowd when he was juicing it in 1999-2004. Or was that his “natural” peak. Ha ha. Good one!

    But seriously, that guy plays for the Jankees, screw him!

    On topic, I have breasts and feelings. Thus, I want to compete in: the women’s chess tournament, women’s MMA, the WNBA, female boxing, gender neutral chromosome diversity contests, golf, etc. I probably won’t be dominant, but have a slight chance to improve on my NBA career with no turnovers, ever. And my NFL QB career, where I have never fumbled or thrown an interception – unlike that Brady chump who fumbled approximately ten thousand times last week and his abrasive younger brother Castle who outdid him with a million interceptions in one week to set the record.

  15. Whatever. They’re women MMA artists, they’re expecting to get beat up by somebody. It’s a vanishingly small slice of women.

    I have to say, one of the effects of feminism on the younger generation, at least in my case, is to weaken the old revulsion against violence against women. Wait, you want to have equal rights in everything, but now when you get hurt, it’s especially evil?

  16. Somebody got to Dana White re Women’s MMA. He used to be a typical male who would find the thought of women fighting in a ring disturbing esoecially if one was a man. Now he’s fully on board with this madness. Money may be the root of all evil.

    Except that one constitutes involuntary assault, while the other is a sport bout where the two competitors consented to it, knowing that physical injury often results from this kind of competition.

    Also, an eunuch who lacks testicles and is on female hormones cannot really be compared to a man. (S)he MIGHT still hold some advantages in terms of bone structure and such, but it is really not comparable.

    You defined "consent" when you said "the two competitors consented to it, knowing that physical injury often results from this kind of competition."

  24. Theres was an article going around MMA circles I saw on sherdog.com from a Dr. talking about whether Fallon Fox did/didn’t have an advantage over women in MMA. The answer was basically, “We don’t know”.

    That was right before he/she lost her first fight and fans stopped paying attention. To be fair, there are some Brazilian women in MMA who appear to have a significant testosterone advantage over Fallon Fox at this point. Gabbi Garcia immediately comes to mind.

    Weird world?

  25. For me, it was the Brasilian volleyball team fielding a former male rep. in the womens team, in Athens if I recall correctly. Just seemed wrong. The IOC approved following challenges from other teams,

    Likewise that Sth. African runner, Castor Senya, all media-manipulated so that nobody knows the real sex, sure looked like a boy.

    Then again, who can really care? The drive for boys and girls to play the same sports, partly from feminists who relish the ability of the girls to out-manipulate and bully the boys in the under-10 age range, sign of a sick society.

    Would be fun if the IOC forced men’s rhythmic gym. and synchro swimming on the world. Instead, we will be getting women’s rugby sevens at the next one, all players drawn from a tiny population of fatties who generally have no interest in the game.

  28. Fox’s record is even more impressive than it might seem because she is 37 years old. It was the same situation with Renee Richards, who was a fairly high – ranked women’s tennis player at an age when most competitors have retired.

    In all fairness, Rice gave her a pop in an elevator, whereas the Trans did it in the ring. Consent matters.

    SJWs wouldn’t have a problem if Rice dressed his wife in a rubber suit, a dog collar, a rubber plug jammed down her throat and rode her around the room whipping her with a freaking riding crop as long as it was consensual. I think SJWs call that “pony play”.

I think Mr. Rice should loudly and repeatedly emphasize that he’s black and that this wouldn’t happen if he were white and that he’s being lynched by the media. Damns yeah, it would be hilarious to watch the gaystream media’s collective head explode over that!

  36. “And doesn’t Black trump Woman in the hierarchy of officially designated victim groups?”

    Black certainly did trump being a woman in 2008 when Liberal Americans were way more excited at the thought of electing a Black male for president than than they were at electing a female for president.

    Even on “Law & Order” being Black trumps being a woman, because you see way more White female antagonists than you do Black antagonists on that show.

    Which is funny because White females commit extremely few crimes in real life, especially when compared to Blacks.

    As for Nick Diaz, maybe he’s mad that he got his second DUI this week?

    More seriously, “Nick Diaz” is right, the situations are not comparable, for the obvious reasons he mentions. That said, one of those doctors interviewed on Sherdog did think that, although M2F transsexuals are not exactly the same as men, there are still significant advantages in terms of, e.g., hardness of the skin. (For the record, another doctor thought that there weren’t significant differences between women and M2F transsexuals.)

  42. […] how society is oppressing male-born mixed-martial-arts fighter Fallon Fox by not letting him her beat up women for money. How is anybody supposed to know that Godfrey Elfwick is parody and Fallon Fox […]
