On day 1, Biden unilaterally eviscerates women's sports. Any educational institution that receives federal funding must admit biologically-male athletes to women's teams, women's scholarships, etc.
A new glass ceiling was just placed over girls.https://t.co/cGWZqDpxl8

Poetic justice. Title IX turned around to chew on itself.
They asked for it.
These girls and women don’t want a guy in their locker room and showers.
“Wichtige Information für Bartträger und Bartträgerinnen // Important information for (male) beard wearers and (female) beard wearers” https://www.derstandard.de/jetzt/livebericht/2000123251491/redcontent/1000215024/wirtschaft?responsive=false – idiocy not limited to USA, what a comfort
It’s no surprise that the very first comment here is a Nanna Nanna boo boo from some juvenile little manosphere jackass.
But on a more substantive note, what exactly is the objection to Title IX?
EDIT, not just the first one, but the second one, too.
How many comments before a normal guy chimes in? Or is it just male chauvinist piglets all the way down?
To quote an old English saying:
“Biden is both a fool and and a knave, a prick and a c*nt”.
Heather Swanson approves!
Hey Rosie, I’m not normal, but I’m a guy all the way down, and I think this is funny. Our new president is an idiot who is already doing idiotic things like this.
Girls and boys, women and men, are different from each other, and they can and should have fun playing sports. Isn’t that all Title IX is about, or should be about?
We can expect to see more of this dumbed-down presidency. Let’s laugh until Kamala takes over.
Since nobody really cares about female sports, which mainly subsist on the coattails of the men, it’s easy to dismiss this issue as insignificant or irrelevant. If, however, a geezer won the women’s tennis Grand Slam that would certainly put the cat amongst the pigeons. But would any man have the chutzpah, not to say the balls, to carry it off? No Serena jokes, please.
So Wimmin setting themselves up as parasites upon normal men, turned out to be setting themselves up as Hosts for abnormal men.
It’s hard not to laugh. So I did.
btw.Did anybody else catching a little of the Coronation of The Pretender yesterday think how much Washington now had its own Green Zone; where the occupiers could go about the business of looting without catching sight of the rebellious natives?
Yeah! More videos of “women” athletes flattening other women athletes.
But hey, we don’t allow this to happen, women will lose all their rights, or something.
Of all the problems facing the USA right now, Biden has consistently prioritised the transgender agenda. I *really* want to know who is behind it. They are extraordinarily good at getting their way.
This is possibly a big deal.
Society can pretend that African-Americans have the same average cognitive ability as white Americans. That delusion causes many problems but it is sustainable for many people, with lots of hard work. It is causing massive problems, but that delusion is sustained so far in the public sphere.
The recent new delusion that males and females have the same average physical abilities at sports is entirely unsustainable. No matter how hard people try to believe it and how strong the pressure/censorship by the mainstream media and internet monopolies, they will not be able to sustain it generally in the public mind.
This policy change will also piss off the moms and dads of athletically-talented girls, who will now be cut out of sports achievement (since they are not excellent compared to males, with their entirely different body shapes, muscle mass, etc.). Will these parents be allowed to express their displeasure publicly, or will they be harshly censored and vindictively targeted?
Don’t call her that. It is like Johnson being called ‘Boris’ by friend, foe, and MSM alike, which his opponents realized too late was a major advantage for him.
Females getting body-slammed by Males-identifying-as-Females during sportive encounters is something straight out of Wiley Coyotette. It’s dangerous for the female and not appealing to look at.
Also, the shower scenes just write themselves!
Meanwhile in the UK:
A rapist with dick who looks like Bob from Twin Peaks takes a stab at being moved to women’s prison:
A transwoman who raped a female in an horrific attack has been jailed for 15 years – but could still end up in a women’s prison
“President Emhoff to you”, said while nodding head side to side and snapping fingers at the same time in honor of both sides of her ancestry.
I’m actually rather sad, and very sorry to all the girls in the land.
I think it’s time to begin gently telling our daughters that they won’t be going to college.
Translate: Let´s laugh while we still can 😛
Anyone remember the Looney Left and the Bananas Republic.
Title IX combined with the fact that men are better a sports means that a woman gets more sports program and scholarship funding than an equally skilled man. And, what disturbs even more people, is that Title IX combined with the fact that men are more interested in sports results in male teams getting cut entirely.
And then there’s a whole bunch of other reasons that men should hate feminism so that even if they don’t care about sports or hate jocks they should still be opposed to Title IX.
Talking of female champions, when are we going to find out who shot Ashli Babbitt?
Yeah, well a lot of us don’t want a lot of stuff.
Feral Gov’t messing with your life, ladies?
Title IX caused a lot of men’s college sports teams to be ended, in order to throw the money at teams for girls, who don’t necessarily care about sports as much. Yes, men and women are different, but it’s just the usual US Feral Gov’t fucking with us, pay no mind.
How the hell I could agree completely with Mr. Champlagne is what I want to know. Agree.
Well, the idea of women’s sports was ind of silly to begin with. With a few exceptions: figure skating, gymnastics (well, before it became a contest with drug-addled genetically modified mutant teens), perhaps beach volleyball, horse riding and a few others.
Most other sport activities masculinize women’s bodies, and are not that great to watch anyway. Female basketball in particular is grotesque. Swimming also seems to change women’s bodies, they have strange shoulders and no breasts.
In this sense, having transgender freaks competing is just the logical extension; why masculinize female bodies, why not just get a masculine body and say “it’s a woman”? Problem solved.
It will be the same with transgender-itis: everyone gets a private dressing room; multi-tier ability levels; rules changes; more.
D’ya think some Harris/Biden voters might be rethinking their wokeness?
The last time I was in an airport the university of Iowa girls field hockey team walked by me. The were all sub 5’5” and +150 lbs. They were all short, fat, snot nosed, and pimply faced. They all resembled 14 year olds even though I’m sure they must have been 18-21. There was no intensity or focus in their demeanor, it was just a giggling gaggle of plump juvenile females. Which is fine, but when you start reconciling that with the reality of what you’re seeing it starts to seem ridiculous. Their parents are paying tens of thousands of dollars for them to attend a large state school, and they’re flying around the country to play what’s essentially a children’s game. We’ve cut boys soccer & cross country for this? Something doesn’t seem quite right. You see impressive female athletes on TV, such as track runners or distance swimmers, so it’s jarring to see the reality of female athleticism up close.
Biden has been the accelerationist the prophecy said would come.
Don’t worry guys, one step back for a few forward or something like that, right?
Nitwits like Rosie are exactly why we’re in this mess.
Quite! There is no political advantage to promoting ‘transgenderism’. It is a minority within a minority. There may have always been ‘drag queens’ just as there have always been child molesters but no politician, until Joe Biden, saw any advantage to being their ‘champion’.
Oh well, this is what you get when you make a compromised man president.
I don’t know what the answer is for equalizing the opportunity for scholarships between boys & girls. I don’t claim to have the answer for that. I don’t want to disparage title 9, I understand where the proponents are coming from. But, look up the participation rates in high school sports. In general, a greater number of males are more interested in playing sports than females. Something just doesn’t feel quite right. It’s problematic, & troubling that mens cross country & soccer teams are cut for women’s field hockey teams. In most cases women’s field hockey should be a club sport.
Things like ‘Black Lives Matter’ being all over company websites since May had me and the guy who started this thread wondering when it’d end, if it could end. (How and when do you go from posting about ‘systemic racism’ to going back to advertising new limited editions of Cheetos?)
It turns out the day of the inauguration is that time. Reddit is back to having an orange rather than black logo too.Though contra the first joke entry, Kickstarter still have #BlackLivesMatter in it’s header.
She likes the pretty dresses and the makeup
Gays and trannies flatter her
Biteme just solved my gambling problem. From now on I’m just going to bet on the chick with the beard and rake in the cash.
I would say it’ll be interesting to see how far the impacts of this will go. Are there really enough guys who will do this to make a big impact? So far the numbers seem small enough that though it has ruined lots of individual female athletes dreams, it seems just that, not a systemic destruction of women’s sports.
Most MtF who are younger tend to be the effeminate type and are going on medical transition earlier and earlier so they’re unlikely to be highly competitive even if they had an interest in sport.
The marines in dresses brigade seem to mostly transition later, after the peak of athletic performance, even assuming they have an interest in competing in women’s sports.
Though there have been some egregious examples like the huge guy who switched to women’s rugby in a move that seemed genuinely unsafe.
“But on a more substantive note, what exactly is the objection to Title IX?”
It’s blatant anti male discrimination, you ditz.
Can someone call Mr. Rosie, and let him know that his wife has wandered out of the kitchen again? she may have even put on shoes.
They might start aborting baby girls, following the lead of China and India.
Alternatively, they might finally realize what’s happened to their country.
I would guess big pharma. Each transsexual is a guaranteed lifetime of psych meds, hormones, pain killers, surgeries, therapy, etc. The Pharm might make as much as a million on each single tranny over its lifetime.
That won’t solve the problem. Girls playing soccer and basketball (to say nothing of wrestling) with boys will get physically injured. That’s a lot more serious than the likes of Michelle Obama feeling inadequate around Princeton classmates with 30 IQ points on her.
Maybe we were all better off before girls sports became a big thing. Even playing against other girls, girl soccer and basketball players suffer way more than their share of concussions and fractures. And then there’s track where once we had sensible limits on girls’ distance events but now we tempt girls to train themselves into amenorrhea.
Mark my words…..the spooks are reading & monitoring this site & building dossiers….use VPNs etc.
Godspeed my friends.
I agree completely.
Since the officiating by a team of all-female referees of the European “Supercup” game Liverpool vs Chelsea a couple of years ago, when there was great amusement among players, coaches and technical staff about the inability of the ref and lineswomen to “keep up with play” *, the mismatch in athleticism has, regularly, been there for those with eyes to see in televised matches. As players? No chance.
* The “fourth official” who doesn’t have any running to do, was 6.5/10.
I like corresponding with you on occasion Rosie & i have a daughter so I’m semi sensitive to your concerns…..civilization, if it ever existed in any serious way is coming apart….
My advice to you for old time sake is…..a) protect yourself and your love ones 1st …2)lower your expectations of men….if we ever had class to start with its on its way out due to high levels of immigration & competition for jobs, women etc
Things are going to get scary over the coming decade.
Goodbye sweetheart, i wish you well.
Long term, in affluent areas, it leads to the rise of private leagues. Doesn’t help with scholarships though.
Are we sure that the phenomenon of women in official sports has really had a positive societal impact? Or was it an early manifestation of “wokeness” and “equalism”?
Does the promotion of women in segregated sports tend to lessen their admiration of men, at a time when men and women deep down need for men to be admired more?
End sports segregation.
I agree. The Feminazis used Title IX to destroy a hundreds of men’s college sports teams so hundreds of women’s teams that absolutely nobody will ever care about could be funded. Now the logic of Feminism as being Pro-Gay having its own logic leading to promotion of sacred transsexualism will allow men pretending to be women to run amuck in women’s sports.
How low ranked was that man tennis player who dominated Serena Williams?
I am not convinced that gender segregation in sports is a good thing at the societal level. I am also not convinced that the promotion of female participation in official sports is a good thing for females, males, or for society overall.
According to Trannie faith today, you are what you assert sexually, even if you never get a shingle hormone shot, much less a surgery. If that is upheld, then a bunch of enterprising guys not good enough for tennis, golf, lacrosse, soccer etc scholarships should proclaim themselves women and sue if they do not get scholarships.
On WWT, the BLM insanity and so on, I’ve basically concluded that the public needs to get these policies good and hard for an extended period of time before a critical mass of people are fed up enough for it to be worthwhile for politicians to make changes.
We have much further to fall as a society before there is any hope for a rebound.
As I said somewhere else, Biden’s platform so far seems to be about two things:
– Eliminate “domestic terrorists” (i.e. white people not aligned to woke progressivism)
– Transexuals über alles (he’s on record saying that 8-year old children should “decide” if they want to be transgenders or not)
Trump was not a good leader, he abandoned people who would go for him anywhere, and in the end was far more for MIGA than for MAGA, but he made millions of people realize the full extension of the Swamp.
I think many people are still in shock after realizing the full extent of corruption and degeneration in the U.S. (and in the world). As the Kamala-Biden train wreck advances, and corona psy-ops gets even more authoritarian, and the transgender cause goes full-speed, this is going to become even clearer.
“Fasten your seatbelts, gentlemen, it’s going to be a bumpy decade” (Bette Davis)
Jews? I mean, it’s no secret that many high-profile “transgenders”, including Richard Levine, and the James Pritzker (I refuse to use their female names), are Jewish. Also, this blurring of gender differences is important to them. It’s part of the whole trans-humanist concept.
If Cristiano Ronaldo decides to cut off his dick so that he can prolong his career for a few more years, Portugal will have a serious chance of winning the women’s soccer World Cup.
Christine Ronaldo could break all kinds of records in the women’s game, like scoring a dozen goals in a single game with his left foot.
The problem is all these discussions are becoming boring. The Covid-Lockdown has gone on almost a year and made life miserable. It facilitated the Biden election and Dem takeover of all three branches of government too.
So what are we talking about? It’s pretty much all over for a while. The Left (or Neo-Liberals) will get what they want. Critiquing the Establishment is an exercise in time-wasting.
If you have a problem with 50/50, what percentage of athletic budgets do you think should be allocated to women’s sports? 25%, 10%, or were you thinking more along the lines of a 100/0 split?
Women’s tennis is quite good and also popular with older male viewers, particularly when the players are bending over waiting to receive serve with tanned thighs that could crack nuts, and pristine, but sweaty white panties stretched tautly over their clenched buttocks.
But eunuchs do not have quite the same appeal.
Aw boohoo, little Mikey doesn’t like having to share.
Maybe athletic scholarships should be abolished altogether, and all college sports should be self financing or paid for by the participants where there is no revenue source.
Uncomfortable shades of ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit?’.
Heh! That’s the second New Yorker cartoon I get, Hammer Jack. (Here‘s the other one.) I should just up and move to the Upper West Side now.
It’s about what the left wants the majority to do, which is to be forced to celebrate this shit as just as good as, or really better than, the nuclear family. They wish to essentially cancel churches who “discriminate” against them. Think of trans as a symbol of the aim to discredit the West, which includes eliminating gender/sex distinctions, and the nuclear family. BLM had the destruction of the nuclear family explicitly in their website.
When social conservatives, right before Obergefell, said a right to gay marriage would undermine straight marriage, they argued very poorly and pretty much left it at that. I was more naive back then, and it ran counter to even gay people’s views that I knew. But here we are. This push probably started around 2013, in beginning of Obama’s second term – the whole pedal to the metal on cultural dismantling. (Steve’s written a lot about that timing). That’s exactly what they want. Not merely “rights” for that tiny minority, you’re right. It’s a sleight of hand to impose as “cultural” what is really political, and radically political. Same reason “racist” is the worst possible thing anyone can be.
Yes, I often get the impression that your average Unz piglet thinks no more deeply than that.
It reminds me of GOPe stooges screeching “That’s socialism” about any government expenditure not aimed at helping billionaires.
Way to defend your position vs. his, Rosie.
Jonathan, that sounds like a snippet from Penthouse Forum …
… from the 1970’s! The problem with your scenario is that the women tennis players today aren’t sexy like they were in the 1970s. They are to the point where I don’t care what color their panties are … let’s see, what’s on CNN, when’s the war with Russia …
… or is it just me?
I think most people don’t understand how important transgenderism is to the elites, and why. The question is not about “political advantage”. Do you think they care about that? The “gay marriage” issue also had little “political advantage” as gays are also a small minority (although, they used the support of women to obtain it, because most women like gays and find them cuddly and, contrary to beta male and incels, they don’t make passes at them).
No, transgenderism and the blurring of the sexes is fundamental to them. Chaos and the destruction of the family are their goals. Demonic inversion is their credo. “Transgender children” is the next step, Biden already said that “8-year old children should be able to choose”.
This what we are up against, demonic androgynes from Hell:
One objection to what you call Title IX is that it’s not a law. It’s made up by bureaucrats to mess with us. Enforcement is entirely who/whom.
And the actual statute isn’t about sports.
But how often is this actually going to happen?
That’s the usual defense. Transwomen are pretty rare, they aren’t all interested in sports, and transitioning does kind of mess them up physically (ya think?), so they aren’t all going to be champions. An if occasionally some dude does come along and dominates some particular women’s sport the media will just paper over it, the same way they’ve papered over dudes beating up women in mixed martial arts. Also, I get the impression that most of the women who participate in sports in college participate in team sports, like soccer, and in that case having a guy on your team is a plus for the other team members, not a negative. It’s only in individual sports that the problem is really obvious.
So it matters how often it happens. As long as it’s rare the wokesters can get away with demanding that we all play pretend. If it happens a lot then that becomes more difficult.
Saw Hope Solo in person once. She was a total babe! Bad choice in men, but that’s another matter.
This is what should happen. Put academics back into academia.
People usually compare movement to the Left with the swing of a pendulum – soon, it will swing back to the right, they say.
How many of us envisioned the pendulum swinging all the way over the top?
President Biden, with his over-the-top Leftism, has actually brought us closer to men being recognized as the most capable of the humans in the realm of physical activity. Winning all the races is just the first step!
Title IX is only discriminatory towards men if it is interpreted to mean that there must be absolute parity between male and female participation in sports. This was the Obama-administration mangling the statute to mean what they wanted it to mean, with no regard for the plain wording of the statute, which is quite clear.
It forbids discrimination. That’s all.
Definitive proof, if it were ever needed for the astute, that these people are most certainly high on their own supply
AFAIK only two amateur sports produce revenue. College football and basketball. Even here the bulk of the revenue is generated by the top (male) teams and ONLY they produce TV revenue. All of that revenue has been heavily impacted by Covid costs and restrictions. The NFL and NBA might be able to limp on without stadium revenue but the NCAA? Ohio State and Duke need those sold out stadiums and arenas both to generate the enthusiasm for and money to fund their teams ( and subsidize women’s programs).
Since sold out stadiums did not happen last year and probably won’t happen this year the future of collegiate sports has to be in doubt.University boards facing the reality of declining enrollments, reduced state budget appropriations and loss of sports revenues are going to have to decide if funding any sport that does not produce revenue can be sustained.
Good God, man, where have you been watching women’s tennis? In your blue-balled imagination? If you want anything “stretched tautly,” then go for women’s figure skating. There you will find beauty.
Actually, it was a new totem in the PC totem pole that was placed above them. The transgender totem.
No, that’s not what Title IX is about. Title IX is about education.
Title IX provides,
No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.
The audience should pay for the sport. Ticket sales, television rights, sponsorship etc. Given human nature, only tennis and beach volleyball might get money. Most failed politics movements are trying to change human nature. Transgender athletes are just a more blatant example.
A sensible way for institutions to allocate funding for sport is by the requirement, not by the idea that men and women needed to be treated, when grouped up, as exactly the same. End of
The LPGA just ceased to exist.
will they be harshly censored and vindictively targeted?
Yes. Of course. Natch. You betcha. Zoitanly. How can anyone doubt it?
What else should happen to fascist, Nazi, genderist scum?
What percentage of nursing school and education school budgets do you think should be allocated to men?
The undergraduate population at Florida State consists of of 14,104 males and 18,368 females. Would you require FSU to expel 4,264 female students, or what?
Vanderbilt was the first university to appoint a male dean of its nursing school, way back in 1967. Today, about 11% of Vanderbilt’s nursing students are male? How would you fix this state of affairs?
Does anyone here fuck other than me? That girl isn’t pretty enough to make my high school’s cheerleading squad unless her mom coached it.
The intent is to further divide and demoralize the opposition.
If I referred to Caramel Harlot would anyone know whom I meant?
If one can’t poke fun at a child of privilege – Brahmin mother, Jamaican upper-middle class mulatto father – whom can one poke fun at? It seems too easy to poke fun at the Noodle With No Noddle.
There’s always the option of educational institutions dropping sports altogether and focusing on education.
what’s essentially a children’s game
You reckon? How much hockey have you played?
This will either totally kill female athletics, or more likely in the case that the zombie must be made to shamble on, will provide a huge leap in overall quality as female sports teams are packed with transvestites. Both options are pretty funny.
This is the real horseshoe, being so pozzed that you swing around the world and end up back at based.
He was using the term Title IX in the colloquial sense. There’s even a sports apparel/athleisure company named after it, because contrary to popular belief, most active women like being women and want to look like women.
Also, I’m not sure what you meant when you said “it’s not a law.” It is indeed a federal statute, though I assume bureaucratic regulations interpreting the statute specifically address the question of athletics.
No, that’s absurd. If I’m not mistaken, engineering departments are as gender-imbalanced as nursing departments, and I don’t think they should kick men out either. I don’t see what that has to do with whether colleges and universities should provide equal athletic opportunities for women.
According to President Joe, the rapist should be entitled to OBGYN.
Jews. It’s simply the next step. Jews are insatiably drawn to decadence. They bring it with them everywhere they go.
There’s no need to throw the baby out with the bathwater. Ballerinas suffer more starvation and overtraining-related health problems than women athletes. The solution is to have realistic expectations, not abolish ballet. Of course, I rather suspect than attempt to enact legislation to protect ballerinas would be met with the usual decision around the parts (nanny state, women don’t want to be held accountable, blah blah, blah on and on).
Title IX, the lesbian full employment act. I gather the feminazis are in full agreement with men in women’s sports. Karma
For those who have worked in prisons, or have friends and family who do so, you know that those places have tons of sickos who call themselves women just to mess with everybody. They’re perverts and predators, and the guards know it. Unfortunately the politicians have no clue what goes on in those places so they’ll make decisions and expect prison workers to follow impossible guidelines regarding these psychos.
what’s really needed are more special institutions for such freaks who can’t be trusted around women, men, guards, dogs, anything. If we’re going to lock people up for criminal behavior, we need to be able to keep them safe from each other and actually give them the environment that’s appropriate. I guess I’d say this goes for truly effeminate men in prison too. They must face constant threat.
Yes. It’s a law.
It is true, bureaucrats can and do manufacture something out of nothing by redefining terms, affirmative action being the most well known example. However, this is what courts are supposed to stop but, if you’ve followed the news, choose not to do with astonishing regularity.
They literally call it the Green Zone. https://www.wusa9.com/article/news/politics/national-politics/inauguration/road-closures-dc-inauguration-day-city-bridges-closed-roads-closed/65-614c8bbb-2bb4-4cee-8181-b0661d014cff
Democrats are the real misogynists.
Not exactly. The problem is that football uses up so many scholarships (something like 80 or so) that it doesn’t leave room for many other male sports teams. So for the number of male athletes to equal the number of female athletes they end up doing away with mens gymnastics, tennis, volleyball, etc.
What that doesn’t account for is that football often actually makes money for the school, either directly or by attracting a lot of donations, whereas most of the other sports don’t.
With enough laudatory media coverage, it could turn into a preference cascade. Like Steve has written about anorexia, many of these trends are media driven. And given social media amplification these days, this could easily become “a thing.” You might even get some straight boys LARPing to get onto the girls team, into the locker room, etc.
In India Trannies ride on subway trains demanding money from passengers. They threaten to hex you if you don’t fork over the rupee’s. Same thing is happening here.
Yes, it’s already happened — back in the ’70’s. Here’s a white man’s take on the spectacle of Dr, Richard Raskind taking on Chris Evert at the US Women’s Clay Court Championships in Indianapolis many years ago:
Here’s a Jewish perspective:
A summary of his record playing as a “woman”:
I have always felt that if 50 percent of physicians must be women by the affirmative action laws, 50 percent of nurses must be women. Same with teachers. And auto insurance rates for 16-35 year old men should be the same.
I don’t know why more men don’t go into nursing school. Only 4 years instead of 8 plus 5 year residency. Because of the lengthy education and further training and cost of 8 years of college, life time earnings if Drs and nurses are getting closer. Men are happy to be low wage EMTs Why they stay away from nursing I don’t know. Nurses in California make about \$135K a year. That’s the 36 hour week. Best thing about nurses, they have one of the toughest unions in the country. While Drs have just submitted to the insurance companies. Plus nurses can travel. Go to one of the Gulf companies and make 100K plus a year with free housing and utilities even free meals in the hospital cafeterias no taxes in the country you’re working in and lower American income taxes. Come home with hundreds of thousands in savings.
Nursing school is the one college White men are not discriminated against.
Maria Sharapova excepted, of course.
Title XI is flawed, but some of the Manosphere whiners’ main grievances:
They delusionally believe if not for Title XI or the presence of women’s sports, every boy who wanted to could be a sports star and grow up with adoring female attention. Also many men who participated in marginal sports like lacrosse or wrestling (Considered kind of gay where I live, by the way. Didn’t even exist in our schools until Midwestern transplants brought it about 10 years ago) hate women’s sports and think they’d get massive crowds for their fringe activities if women’s soccer went away. Or something.
Just another symptom of America’s fixation on sports but not fitness, honestly.
No, “it” is not a law. Re-read the comment thread carefully. The antecedent of “it” is not “Title IX”.
If the men’s football or basketball teams can’t pay for the girls, then the poor schmucks just paying their tuition do. Or do you believe all those endowments actually benefit the students in some capacity?
Here’s a long ESPN article.
The battle over Title IX and who gets to be a woman in sports: inside the raging national debate
Obama did what Joe is doing now on this, it got held up in the courts and then reversed under Trump.
“WITH A SINGLE letter, dated May 13, 2016, President Barack Obama and his administration altered the debate over rights for transgender youth in the United States. Using a mechanism known as a “Dear Colleague Letter,” Obama’s Justice and Education departments issued joint guidance on transgender inclusion in schools. The letter spelled out how the administration was interpreting Title IX and was unequivocal about the inclusion of transgender students in its protection.”
This (or should it be “these”?) is who wrote this ESPN article.
Katie Barnes (they/them/their) is an award winning journalist for ESPN and espnW, covering culture, LGBTQ issues, women’s basketball, collegiate softball, and women’s combat sports. Since joining ESPN in August 2015, Katie has written on myriad topics, such as transgender athletes, racial justice, and Hollywood stunt doubles. Their article on two high school transgender athletes earned them a GLAAD Award nomination for Outstanding Magazine Article. Katie holds a B.A. in History, Russian Studies, and American Studies from St. Olaf College, and an M.S. in Student Affairs and Higher Education from Miami University (OH). They were the 2017 NLGJA Journalist of the year.
From “their” picture, I thought “they” were trans in some direction, but it seems “they” are a lesbian.
The secret double life of a gay basketball coach
Former basketball player and coach Katie Barnes talks about their fear of being out and having to live a double life while they coached at a Catholic school.
Thank you for the info as I had forgotten the relative success of Rene Richards.
No, she never won a major, but she did beat women who won majors, including Ms. Mandlikova, who won the US Open in 1985.
It was men gay directors of ballet companies who decreed that ballerinas should be built like the gay ideal, skinny 11 year old boys. Just look at 1950s 60s dancers. They are normal slim, 5’4 110 pounds, not 85 pounds. Men!!
It’s not even a career, crippled and retired on disability at age 30. . It’s fun though I love it.
I have a family member who takes Humira. They send it by overnight courier in an insulated box with gel packs (it only needs to be refrigerated, not frozen) and a temperature indicator dot that changes color if the temperature limits have been exceeded (we’ve never gotten a shipment where they have). Once you open the box the Humira is in an EpiPen type dispenser – you press the tip of the dispenser to your skin and click the button and a spring loaded recessed hypodermic needle injects you.
For most of the current Covid vaccines you’d need to replace the gel packs with dry ice but this distribution model could work, especially if you could combine all of the doses for a household into one shipment. It could be a supplement to the existing (painfully slow) vaccination programs rather than a substitute, focusing on people in rural areas remote from vaccination centers, the homebound, etc. Amazon and their shipping partners handle millions of boxes per day (and even more in the holiday season) so a few million more would not pose a big challenge.
Operation Warp Speed was an incredible program to produce a vaccine in record time but they seem to have completely dropped the ball on distribution. Most of the states are only getting up to speed now when they had many months to be preparing while the vaccines were in development.
No, you’re just doing the same thing that Democrats do every time we encounter disparity in the world: engage in highly selective outrage.
Florida State has more athletic scholarships for men than for women? OUTRAGE!
Florida State admits far more women than men? (crickets)
Men earn more money than women? OUTRAGE!
Men are less likely to graduate from college than women, have shorter lifespans than women, commit suicide at higher rates than women, are more likely to die on the job than women, and are more likely to go to prison than women? (crickets)
Blacks go to prison more often than whites? OUTRAGE! PROOF OF RACISM IN THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM!
Men go to prison more often than women? (crickets)
Whites do better on most social metrics than black and Hispanics? OUTRAGE!
Jews and Asians do better than whites on most social metrics? (crickets)
Basically the only country we’re allowed to live in is a country where men do worse than women, straights do worse than gays, and whites and Christians do worse than absolutely everyone. If whites and men and Christians aren’t doing far worse than every other demo then discrimination against them must be imposed by the Courts until they do.
Lots of regular white suburban moms with children support this transgender jackassery. Lots of them voted for Biden, who will now work to disenfranchise them and rob their children of opportunities in the name of “racial and gender equity”. That’s why it’s relevant, you tiresome harpy.
Please soccer playing boys in search of college scholarship bite the bullet. Keep your plumbing, don’t take the meds, but please in mass identify as girls. I really want to see the entire women’s US soccer team react to your invasion into their domain.
In these last 4 years, it seemed like almost half the New Yorker cartoons were about Trump. Did you know he was Bad?
I hope they will now find other subjects to be unfunny about.
Agree. It hasn’t hit home yet. People need to see it in action, to the point where it’s affecting them directly. Right now it’s just a feelgood policy that makes woke white people feel like they are being more inclusive. You like inclusivity Becky? Get ready!!!
Maybe the solution is to get government out of the business of micro-regulating every single aspect of our lives and let individual colleges and sports groups, etc. make their own decisions as to who they want on their teams and by what rules their sport should be governed, because they know more about their sport than the government does?
Central government control of sports and sports spending doesn’t work any better than central government control of the economy and capital spending. You end up with wild misallocations and distortions because government feedback mechanisms are slow and crude compared to market mechanisms. Resources are allocated based on political considerations rather than demand and the results are far from optimal. Even when excesses are noted, it can take years or decades to correct them because the wheels of government grind slowly.
I’m hearing that the White House press corps assigned to cheerlead the new administration will be almost exclusively female. Male journalists may need gender reassignment to claw back some of these plum positions.
Field hockey is no more and no less a “children’s game” than any other sport. In many parts of the world it is played by men. I suppose in the US the men’s version is mostly crowded out by ice hockey and by lacrosse.
You can object to almost ALL sports on the grounds that they are mere children’s games. The thing is that there is vastly more demand among spectators and the players to watch and participate in certain children’s games vs others, but Title IX substitutes government micromanagement for the judgment of the marketplace.
I mean that “Title IX in the colloquial sense” is not a law. There is no law focusing on sports scholarships by sex.
Whew! That’s almost NSFW…but thanks!
“Amazon and their shipping partners handle millions of boxes per day (and even more in the holiday season)…”
This past holiday season it crossed my mind I might have to substitute a std gift of Jeni’s ice cream. It ships with dry ice, my thinking being that dry ice might be the new toilet tissue; as Pfizer had suggested it might be an issue. Turned out it was a not, their bewildered response to my inquiry left me feeling a bit queer for asking.
On a couple of occasions I’ve left the pints sealed in their styrofoam insulated boxes for days, and when opened found they remained frozen solid.
Wonder where J&J’s one dose vaccine is in its evaluation/release?
If gender is a social construct, then why have separate sports leagues in the first place? Mix everyone together. No separate leagues for females.
Women’s volleyball 👊
6-foot women with 24-inch leaps 👊
It will be tempting for some male tennis players to declare themselves female to play in Wimbledon or the US Open , since the prize money is equal to the men’s tournaments. A man ranked 150th in the world would easily dominate and win all the grand slam events each year against the female competition. No need to have surgery , just state that you always felt like a little girl inside, wear a nice wig and put on some make-up.
In their defense, they weren’t expecting a proven (i.e. not Chinese or Russian) vaccine to materialize for a while. Meanwhile, they were racking their brains for ways to get out of their fiscal dilemma from either shutdowns or economic downturns that have accompanied even non-shutdown states. Then there was the delicate balancing act between cracking down on a BLM/Antifa-initiated crime wave and getting pilloried by a far left media that views these criminals as their operations arm, while getting high fives from limo liberal/independent (aka Biden) voters mostly insulated from the mayhem and destruction.
Pritzker Family of Billionaires out of Chicago basically hoisted it on the USA at every level by spending hundreds of millions to do it. They are also mostly responsible for installing Obama — one of them is a Tranny “Jennifer” but they all are in on it as they are invested in Medical and stand to make a killing off it I read….This gives you an idea of the Billionaires pushing this on children:
If you do some research you will find the parents and girls who protest this lunacy are targeted — by their Coaches and School Admins etc. most Coaching Associations etc. are all for this…. — most parents do nothing because they are scared of reprisals and losing their livelihoods etc. — this the “New Amerika” — stand up for what is right and you will be destroyed — Wray’s FBI will probably find some way to railroad you too — call you a “White Supremacist” or whatever it takes — the FBI is little more than a KGB for the NWO/Dems and blatantly acts that way with no push back. The country is destroyed.
I played baseball at a private engineering school in the late 1970’s. We were very good for our level, three guys on our roster were signed to minor league contracts. Made the NCAA D3 tournament once.
I understood, however, that as a non-revenue sport at a small university, we were absolutely at the discretion of the school’s administration to fund/support/continue our participation. The administrators could have shut down our humble little program at any time. They didn’t. I was grateful for that, baseball practice helped ease the pain of physics and calculus classes.
No one has a “right” to play sports, period.
And certainly, no one has a “right” to play a sport when the market doesn’t support it.
Liberal wealthy white and Jewish women. Those are the voters who respond to the poor victim of (insert group) narrative at the polls.
It makes them feel special and like they are superheroes saving the downtrodden with their votes.
Are you sure about the parallel construction? Knave aligns with prick, while fool aligns with cunt.
“Biden is both a knave and and afool, a prick and a c*nt.”
At this point, I don’t think our senile figurehead, Faux Biden, knows what he is signing. He is neither fool nor a Knave. He is a human autopen like the Philip Green character in the Scorsese film, Casino; just a frontman CEO for the mob.The Democrat Politburo is ruling by decree now. And to think it all started by electing our first third world politician, Obama, to the office of president. I have to admit that I didn’t see this coming so quickly, but perhaps the malevolent Hillary wouldn’t have been so different.
“Their parents are paying tens of thousands of dollars for them to attend a large state school…”
No, they probably have field hockey scholarships, making the situation even more ludicrous.
Schadenfreude!!!! I am pleased seeing the athletics division of bitches United taking a big hit. Go to hell feminist cunts a women without a family is worthless move on to evolutionary extinction.
OT: Achmed, I find most of your comments amusing, so I checked out your website and liked it, lots of clever and funny stuff, but there was one major problem: Your post about the more-than-ample derriere attached to the woman on the treadmill at your gym had an interior photo taken at Orange Theory. Please tell me that this is just some stock photo that you grabbed off the net, and you aren’t actually a member there. For iSteve readers unfamiliar with the world of physical fitness (Which I would guess is around 90%, because snarkiness inversely correlates with strength and vigor. If there ever is a real-world iSteve get-together, it will be BYOR. Bring Your Own Rascal), Orange Theory is a feminized, foo-foo, suburban Soccer Mom “gym” that is all cardio, no weights. Oh wait, they do have some 5-pound dumbells that you can attempt to curl while you text your lunch order to the Whole Foods deli. Orange Theory makes Planet Fitness look like Gold’s.
I’ll check back at your site in a couple days, if you can post a pic of yourself at a real gym, bench pressing your bodyweight for reps (Or squatting 1.5 x bodyweight), I’ll become a regular reader.
And btw, my own physical-to-mental-strength comparison would be something like this: (Read it in a Russian accent) “Strong like bull, smart like tractor!”
“…women tennis players today aren’t sexy like they were in the 1970s…”
Check out Eugenie Bouchard. (I don’t know how to post a photo.)
Bad? It has very much helped to destroy Western Civilization/USA and got us where we are today in large part — but you probably like that. So enjoy “Bruce” in the toilet with you – – Feminists are disgusting – – “piglets” hmmm I won’t say but light years past that — self righteous arsonists. Men have been getting screwed over for many decades now as to the “oppressed” women, who actually have way more than 50% of the money as the men die sooner and who are privileged in every manner including in criminal prosecutions, Divorce, College selection, job quotas etc. so tired of them and their whining for every advantage they don’t deserve — so here you go — yes enjoy “Bruce” in the toilet with you and in your daughter’s shower, he’s harmless just ask “it”.
Go for a walk. Write a book. Go to church. Whatever you do quit reading unz.
You’re warping your perception and turning loony. Find a normal life before you really turn into the female version of tiny duck, before you become another exhibit in the internet menagerie.
It must be very tempting for a lower-ranked male player to “transition” (which apparently doesn’t mandate hormones or surgery) and start winning tennis tournaments. Though it’s not just about muscle – Federer’s thighs and Serena’s upper arms are about the same size.
“nobody really cares about female sports, which mainly subsist on the coattails of the men”
But the “sports” where grace is involved may still see female champions – ice dance anyway. Gymnastics might be another, the floor exercises at least.
Pity about pole vault, currently with the most fit (in every sense) females.
One glorious outcome will be the complete replacement of the US Women’s Soccer team, at least until they realise no one will want to play them.
I’m going with shamed and penalized. Lose their job, minor legal troubles.
I don’t care. Hope they get it good and hard.
Looking over my FB posts from yesterday and I see most of the gloating from the Biden inauguration and power fist poses are from WHITE females. One twat had the nerve to say NOW she feels hopeful for her country. You cunt, I’m hopeful for my country no matter which asshole is in office and no matter what color tie he wears.
Acting like Kamala did some extraordinary thing in getting picked as a token by a dottering old boomer. Jesus.
Fuck women’s sports. I like to ride a road bike and so pay attention to pro cycling from time to time and the lectures on why there should be more money for women cyclists is a gross topic that pops up all the time.
I hope they all get to enjoy it immensely.
After what I’ve seen and experienced in the last 4 years the gloves are fucking off! And I’ll be here to gloat when the first virtue signaling Dad is moaning about how Britney was raped at Soccer practice by someone named Emma…who was born as Ernie.
I’m in the process of enrolling as a study participant for Phase 3 trial of Novavax. If it’s approved, big improvement over currently approved Covid vaccine. Can be stored at normal refrigeration temperature. Much less chance of inadvertent spoilage during transport and storage.
I’m thinking the contact sports will fade away, or become all trans. Or will be club sports, and when the trans show up, it melts away to be formed elsewhere for as long as the trans can be avoided.
Softball, volleyball, tennis, etc. will be tiered.
I recall a bar conversation over the local women’s softball league. Someone asked what was the difference between the A league and the B league; “if you look like a dyke, you play A.”
Strange days indeed.
Meh, to each their own. I see that and think…Gross. I have bigger tits than she does.
This sounds like just standard Amazon PR douchebaggery. I don’t think that UPS & Fedex are the chokepoint. We have doctors’ offices in my office building – not a particularly large one – and UPS and Fedex trucks are here literally every day. Most hospitals, clinics, and even doctors’ offices probably see them every day, as well. For Fedex and UPS a vaccine shipment is just an extra box for a place they’re probably already going to.
From what I understand Amazon doesn’t deliver its own stuff in rural areas, anyway. It delivers in cities where it has warehouses, but in small towns it hands off to the major package carriers.
The chokepoints are in the manufacturing of the drug, on the front end, and at the hospitals, clinics, and pharmacies which are supposed to be giving the vaccines to people. And the latter is probably only due to the states not giving them adequate instructions. Probably it’s all just about them getting the word out to people who are eligible to come in and get their damn vaccine.
Shipping to homes doesn’t make much sense. The number of shipments going out from the manufacturer would increase exponentially, as would the amount of packaging materials, dry ice, etc., that were needed. Their model didn’t plan for that. And once the vaccines were delivered most people wouldn’t feel comfortable giving it to themselves.
Steve, This is a horrible development regarding womens sports, but…….
… let me digress to your previous article about the 1917 terrorist panic aimed at German-Americans. Germans became docile instead of demonstrative.
Exactly the same with the super intelligent Japanese after Internment. They kept there heads down, down down. Think of the amazing waste of brainpower. They were really on their way before this. They dominated the entire California strawberry market prior to internment. After the war and horrible imprisonment and demonization, instead of getting there kids in the best colleges, “Shell-shocked Japanese parent told there kids, to just quietly get a degree and/or job. No big ambitions thanks to being demonized in the worst way during WW2.
I bought a place from an internee in the 90’s. He was the best man ever, but he and his wife were so “careful” even with me 50 years later. It like they were saying to me, “we want no trouble with you.”
Good Luck in 2121, with the newly declared war on Americans again.
Her ankles are in different time zones!
Sensible limits on women’s distance events? Are you referring to the absurd ban on women running more than 200 meters after some pansy Olympic officials got horrified that the women competing in the 1928 800 were breathing too heavily?
Running is one the best activities possible for a woman; prevents osteoporosis, makes it easier to physically bear children, and lowers the risk of various cancers.
Only a small percentage of elite female runners get amenorrhea. Elite male runners are prone to eating disorders, but it doesn’t get much press. Such is the price of being an elite athlete. Lots of elite athletes take harmful steroids too, doesn’t mean we should discourage regular people from participating in sport and striving for physical improvement and well-being.
Girls running track or cross-country on your typical high school varsity team are among the healthiest in their age groups.
Also- girls’ sports existed and were even popular long before Title 9. My great-grandmother played high school basketball in the 1920s, and my great-aunt was a competitive swimmer for her all-girls Catholic high school in the early 40s. She even traveled to surrounding states for meets, mostly with other private schools.
We’d be better off if sports were less of a “big thing” for men, too. It’s true that everything was more casual decades ago.
Generally I think sports at the youth and high school level are great, but they are problematic at the college level. Should be clubs aside from what is financially sustainable. That would probably only leave a few sports for men and women alike. Y’all overestimate the popularity of men’s sports among spectators beyond football, basketball, baseball, and track/field.
100/0 is cool with me.
I would have loved to see if one of these transgender “athletes” would have had the guts to take on Ann Wolfe when she was in her prime in the ring. Of course they would have to make weight although Ann could have probably fought some at a catchweight and still kicked their sorry asses.
Dafne Schipper, a female athlete who looks like a Nordic goddess could easily support one of these freaks in any track and field event. And Schipper is still young enough to compete unlike Ann.
Biden? I’m guessing he could cover the 40 in about 5 minutes.
Sentence too long, cut last 6 words.
“ I don’t see what that has to do with whether colleges and universities should provide equal athletic opportunities for women.”
The current rule is equal outcomes, not opportunities. The pool of women who want to be college athletes is much smaller, but they get the same number of spots.
In addition to being unfair, it also results in upper and upper-middle class families putting gigantic resources and pressure onto high school girls to use athletics for a scholarship or preferential admission.
Higher education in the USA is now so fully a force for evil, anything to damage and disrupt it, such as obnoxious trannies, is positive.
White women – it’s the way they wants it . . . Well, they gets it.
Women’s sports are not conservative.
They were initially banned or strongly discouraged. Then, they were legalized through congress in the 1970s, like so many other bad decisions made around that time period.
If Joe Biden is destroying women’s sports, he is a conservative. Dontcha get that?
He may not be intentionally doing it, and his method is not conservative, but the outcome Shrier proposes is.
MtF transsexuals are one of the best things to happen to this country. Finally, the bulldykes are losing clout in society.
Who doesn’t like that? Raise your hands!
I still have not been able to see a youtube of that MMA match where the tranny busted the woman’s face. This was the time when all the progressive goodie-two-shoeses decided that Joe Rogan was also a nazi because he didn’t like it.
Can’t make up my mind whether I am for it or against it. This might be the odd occasion when three wrongs make a wrong. Perhaps Sista Souljah could make sense from it.
Any links to videos of trannies beating the crap out of women in combat sports?
Sorry, Martina. I’m all for it.
I’d also like to see a high school girls wresting team, middleweight division contest wherein one of the competitors is an XY who has been offered a wresting scholarship at Oklahoma.
I also support a mandate for high school-aged, XY boys to take XX girl health classes.
Unisex locker rooms are a great idea, too.
Public education is a political institution.
And it’s no surprise that the third comment here is from you, our resident Karen, scolding us for finding humor in a humorous situation.
Tell us – do you troll this site on an hourly basis, eagerly awaiting a comment or an article that discusses women, so that you can jump in and post your usual woman-good-man-bad comments? Given the regularity with which you post here, we can safely assume you are a stay at home mom whose husband (Corvinus?) is out working his ass off, so that you can continue to plague this site with your presence.
Newsflash, you feminist shill: one of the many objections to Title IX is that it results in the elimination of men’s sports programs, in order to achieve an equal number of female programs.
For example: State U has 20 men’s sports programs and only 10 women’s sports programs. Title IX does not add 10 more women’s programs. Instead, to achieve “equality,” it simply cuts 10 men’s programs.
Voila! Instant equality.
I’m sure you find that an entirely fair and reasonable result, but then again, you are a feminist lunatic.
Anti-male, anti-white females like yourself are a menace to this country. You are living proof of the Greek philosopher who said “Teaching a woman to write is like giving poison to an asp.”
Simply stated: you are a mass of enraged estrogen which has somehow taken human form, and then gained access to a keyboard and the internet.
It resembles a pugnacious gremlin. I fail to see how anyone can see anything attractive here.
Who says that Gen X care about showers or locker rooms. No one wants to take a shower in a crowded room where everyone has a cell phone. They change clothes at home and never take showers in public.
Whoa, that’s Jack D. coming out as a Libertarian! You’ve got to have a thick skin now, Jack. They’ll call you all sorts of names. Just call them anti-Libites back. ;-}

Hope Solo was a goalie.
Do goalies qualify as real soccer players?
Aren’t they the European equal to punters and placekickers? At least punters and placekickers try and tackle a guy a couple times before their 25th birthday any way.
There has been exactly one hot female athlete in my life and she never won a big tournament.
Is the revenue generated by women’s college sports equal to that of men’s?
How about the interest in sports by women compared to men?
The funny thing his, pretty much every man here (that you bash collectively) is against men competing in women’s sports (they are merely ridiculing the self inflicted wounds the left is suffering from).
Also, missed yours and Alden’s condolences in the Kathy Shaidle post, but saw a lot of men offering theirs. Huh!
Wonder what all of the woman who play sports and who proudly cast votes for Biden now think? They just had to get rid of the racist fascist orange man and now they just screwed themselves.
This discriminates against womens’ sports programs unless it also requires that biologically-female athletes must be admitted to men’s sports programs. The applicable quota would be proportional to the male-femnale ratio in the school itself. Suddenly, Cal Tech has a chance to beat Alabama.
The appropriate chant would be, “We’re number 000 000 001”
I had a dream last night and in my dream it was 2024 and four full years into the biden-harris administration. A certain segment of the commubity had learned to send their kids to school, teach their children that it is not right to take things just because you want them, to throw litter in a garbage can, to talk through disagreements, to say “Excuse me Officer is there a problem?”, to stop using M#%%#r F%&8#r in every sentence, to work at a job and save some money, to accept bad test results as a given when you are unprepared or unqualified, to learn the real meaning of the word “fiance”, and to learn to swim, ice skate and play lacrosse. I knew it was a dream with the lacrosse thing. I am willing to bet real money that somethings, important things like familial responsibilty, financial responsibility and criminal behavior won’t change at all, but the MSM will let that slide. Stay safe.
I am thinking she’s the one who is really in charge now.
D’ya think some Harris/Biden voters might be rethinking their wokeness?
Only if they never thought in the first place. Biden was very clear about his support for transgenders, including allowing “women with penises” the option to to serve their time in women’s prisons.
“The purpose of propaganda is not to persuade but to humiliate. To make the powerless complicit in a lie.”
The purpose is demoralization. You can lose your job for pointing out that a man in a dress is not a woman. You are made complicit in the lie, and this is just one lie of a great many that we are forced to repeat.
no politician, until Joe Biden, saw any advantage to being their ‘champion’.
No, if you watch the Democratic primary, every candidate was equally going ho about transgenderism. Perhaps Liz Warren and Cory Booker most of all.
“why we’re in this mess”
White men folded and passed the power to the brown and black overclass they helped create. White men believed ingrates of colour would lay laurels at their feet for their altruism. As the brand of the black goddess is seared into their flesh white men point their fingers at others and say you’re why we’re in this mess.
“Most people” wouldn’t get the vaccine this way but it would be one more channel. Right now, if you try to getting the vaccine thru the channels that have been set up, you can’t get an appointment in most places even if you are in a high risk group. You go on the portals that have been set up (if any) and there are no appointments available. People are looking at months and months before they can get the vaccine. I know a couple in NY in their early 70s (one just recovered from leukemia) who were supposed to get the vaccine this week but instead they got Covid first. I think there are plenty of households (not all) that would be delighted to receive a box of 4 or 5 EpiPen type devices loaded with the Covid vaccine in the mail tomorrow so they could take it and give it to grandma and their adult children instead of waiting several months more for a vaccine appointment. I know that I would jump at that chance. In the box would be instructions and a barcode link to an online video demonstration. Honest to goodness I’ve seen it done and it’s not rocket science. They teach 12 year olds of average intelligence how to self-administer an EpiPen.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned…the number of crazy/evil people is limitless
photon, Pritzker money maybe?
Democrat politicians are always looking to virtue signal for their Leftist bleeding heart bases (white females – blacks are just there for the gibmedats and don’t really care about anything that doesn’t concern black people). For a long time, being pro-gay served that function but since every battle of World War Gay has been won and the enemy utterly defeated they needed to find something new to virtue signal with and transgender seemed like the natural next (il)logical step.
I wonder whether America will push for these rules to be implemented in the Olympics?
I’ve never seen women play sports together just for fun outside of some social, organized setting.
Men who are complete strangers to each other will, for example, congregate at public basketball courts to play pickup basketball games with each other.

Welcome to the new normal.
There is always hope. We all know Jim Brown played lacrosse at Syracuse and excelled. Now that I think about it, a black dude playing lacrosse back then blew whitey’s minds and got the white girls madly pursuing him.
jonathan, you may have the best idea possible on this subject. Few students, at any level, participate in sports, but sports require huge expenditures. My local HS in bond debt for new turf, all weather track, practice fields, lighting, equipment and new stands. And yet, maybe 20 guys or girls on the soccer or lacrosse teams, some of whom play both sports. Too much money and emphasis on sports and this from a father whose daughter had a full athletic scholarship offered to her. College club sports fill a need and often self fund.
Think of the rulemaking that’s going to accompany this. Will it be enough for some guy to self-ID as a girl, or will there be some blood test requirements about circulating T? Didn’t the East Germans manage to put “women” in the Olympics a time or two who were pretty iffy?
Forget the Stanford crew team, now there’s a place for some lucky guy on the Stanford women’s track team, women’s basketball team, women’s softball team….oh, hey, wait one minute, softball! If the straight girls who don’t want to play with other girls have to wear hair ribbons, what about the new “women”? How will they set themselves apart?
Some NCAA Div I uni is going to field a women’s basketball team that wins everything, featuring a power forward or maybe a center that’s a taller version of Serena. Then every women’s team will be searching for one. Think of all the young men who can’t quite make it onto a men’s team, but who easily can be a dominating player on a mostly girl’s team.
And when they sorta graduate, they can demand a place in the WNBA!
Woke supply and demand…and Benjamins…and HONK! HONK!
Conservatives should look at the brighter side — for sure Biden’s Tweets won’t be as offensive as Trump’s were, and isn’t that what the election was all about, civility on Twitter?
Yes, as we all know the Russians and East Germans were abysmal failures at the Olympics.
But more to the point, the government control has been there for quite some time. It’s just that the extant control has turned against and is being used to disfavor its historical beneficiaries now.
Only at the risk of….
I don’t know when or if you were a coed, but when I was in college I had a girl who had literally never rowed before any level but joined the team because practically anyone could get on the women’s rowing team – it was formed solely to achieve your 50/50 Title IX split so that the successful football team could remain. Rowing scholarships were available for women who had never picked up an oar before in their lives.
Could it be that perhaps accepting the fact that as a general principle men have a more broad and more intense interest in competitive athletics is a place to start when determining where opportunities and funding should be directed? Is this such an outrageous idea to you?
It’s not about spending on or promoting women’s sports, it’s about defunding and canceling men’s sports.
In the feminism rule book, any advantage men have, relative to women, is unfair, per se discrimination, and must be eliminated. Any advantage women have, relative to men, is due to the natural superiority of women–and should be encouraged.
Serves them right,
Women have again shot themselves in the foot. They overwhelmingly support feminism and Democrats. And feminism instead of actually doing something for women, forces them to pretend they are men with boobs.
I think now is the time to lean back and prepare the popcorn: There is a subculture in feminism – TERFs (TransExclusionaryRadicalFeminism) who hates – really HATES – transpeople with an intensity only women can hate: Will be interesting what they have to say…
Another culture whose reaction will be interesting are Muslim, who want their women to wear a hijab: I cannot imagine that their ideas of propriety allow a self-identified transgender (with male parts still attached) to enter a bathroom or locker reserved for women…
Jack I think this paradigm is outdated and as of today pretty well backwards. Your model has the elected Democrats at the top of the pyramid, while in reality they’re now simply the elected appendage of something much bigger and encompassing multinational capital, media, the academy and the administrative state. Elected Democrats are the tail, not the dog. People freely go between the heads of this hydra and into Democratic politics, and then back out into media, capital, the academy, etc. This is part of why elected Democrats will “walk the plank” for unpopular long-term leftist wish list items – they always have a cushy place to land to be paid handsomely on the back end.
So I think it’s incorrect to say that the media is “biased” in favor of Democrats. I think it’s probably more accurate to say that the elected Democrats walk through the doors opened by both the news and entertainment media. Before his dementia became what we see now, Biden was the quintessential “quiet part out loud” guy in Washington. What do you think he meant when he said that “Will and Grace” and the like was responsible for the advent of Gay Marriage?
Who has more real world, political power – Jeff Zucker or a back bench first term Democrat in Congress? AOC or Zucker? (another way to say it – who made AOC?) Who has more of a say in the direction of change in social mores? Who can determine what the political issues are in the public conversation (and, conversely, what they are not)? Who can make pampered suburban white women decide en masse on a dime that mutilating the genitals of children and pumping them full of hormones is a good thing to do (in exchange for thumbs up and likes on social media)?
I don’t think what we’re up against here is merely the overeagerness of Democrats to serve their base.
OT: There was a walkout today at The New Yorker, but nobody got it.
Roughly 100 staffers of The New Yorker magazine walked off their jobs on Thursday in protest of pay disparities.
It’s not a glass ceiling, it’s a glans cap.
The irony is that the very girls who are harmed by this nonsense probably supported Joe by a ratio of ten-to-one.
I nominate henceforth referring to the White House as the Green Zone.
Good one. I think it has legs.
Nah. It became associated with girls at Northeastern boarding schools and women’s colleges. Thus, men lost interest. As with one-time boys’ names such as Beverly and Ashley.
Isn’t lacrosse seen as solely a girls’ sport in Britain?
They’re nazis, in other words.
That’s how it works now. Should be a fun four years!
Hopefully Good Ole Joe Xi Jinping turns all public bathrooms into unisex bathrooms so I can sit down in a stall next to you and ask for a square of TP in a deep baritone voice.
We need to take it a step further than that, even. Abolish public funding for education altogether. If you want to go to school, or want your children to go to school, then pay for it yourself (and that includes primary school).
The market will allocate all possibilities, and there will be plenty of opportunities for private tutors.
Am I correct that a person can win millions of dollars, in women’s tennis matches?
If so, then yes, we’ll be seeing someone attempt this soon enough. Kinda surprising it hasn’t happened already, but I feel confident it will occur soon enough to give Biden’s administration some well-deserved headaches.
Well, I have an issue with a 50/50 split that is the same problem I have with a 30/70 or a 100/0 mandated split. The best way to decide where the budget gets allocated is based on need alone. I went to a school that had boys baseball, boys basketball and nothing else. If you were a girl, you needed to go to home economics cause they didn’t play sports. Girls of my time were actually above sports. They dressed nice, went to church, and most abhorred the idea of getting all sweaty playing basketball. Tiltle 9 re-aligned school sports with the changing female paradigm of acceptable vs not for a lady. We dont talk much any more about being lady like, certainly don’t teach that very much anymore either. Not to be negative against a particular party line, but how many lady like women role models do we actually have any more. We all watched 4 years of trollops parading around being any thing but lady like. In this area, our former 1st LADY, was among a very few select female role models that if nothing else, showed a level of class and pride while being beseached on all sides. History will probably show her as a very CLASSY lady. This is all directly a result of title 9 and other mis guided policies, while good by way of intent, failing by way of unintended consequences.
The union is probably nuts. Could New Yorker be making the kind of dough to pay all that out? Atlantic has been borderline busted/rescued repeatedly, I don’t see much difference in them. The rest of it is boilerplate women-whine.
This seems like a bridge way too far for Amazon, if anyone really wants to press the matter. This is tantamount to Amazon admitting that it was willing to delay and let people die for political reasons.
Beat this drum. This should not go unnoticed.
Men were more interested in sports than women, so if funds were distributed fairly according to interest, naturally more would go to men’s activities. The opposite would’ve been true of music and theater. This had real-world effects, as minor men’s sports were cut to fund activities few women had interest in anyway.
Which suggest it was never about “fairness”, but social engineering, pushing women into sports. Funny, the pre-coed women’s colleges were doing a bang-up job of that already. But at coed schools, ladies would rather watch gentlemen compete.
Ironically, this cause would have a better rationale today. Our young were far less obese in 1970.
I am not a manospherian nor at all interested in sports. But most men are. Title IX applied to sports pitted women’s sports directly against men’s in a culture where a couple of men’s sports got most of the funding from colleges, and men are much more interested in playing sports.
Title IX’s forces equal funding for women’s sports. Schools were not going to lessen their support of football and basketball, so that killed a lot of men’s sports at the university level.
Education was already tilted heavily in girls’ favor. When boys do better on the SAT, they add another verbal section to help girls. Boys do better in on math tests? They teach math very badly and slowly. Absolutely no one thinks schools need to be overhauled from top to bottom to ensure that boys’ GPA equals gurls’. While it is may be a symptom of toxic masculinity, it might only be a result of natural competitiveness, being more athletic is the only thing that boys have that makes them feel not-so-inferior to girls. They have a lot of their self-esteem tied up in sports.
With pretty much every factor in college admissions favoring girls, Title IX gave women equal sports scholarship funding with men. That’s the same athletic scholarship funding spread over far fewer athletes. Given the racial difference x sex difference in sports, most of those football and basketball scholarships are not open to white boys. Black girls don’t play sports much, maybe because of obesity, maybe their hair, I dunno. Regardless of the causes, not only are teachers biased in girls’ favor, but now sports scholarships are, too. Testing, the only remotely fair measure of ability, has been declining in popularity, and will soon be nonexistent. That is largely not the fault of either women or title IX. It can squarely be blamed on Asians testing too well, and blacks testing too poorly. It also has disproportionately hurt boys, who depend on testing to show that they are not dumb, just immature.
It’s been a long time since I was in high school, but at least back then, the girl-jock culture was not nearly as toxic as the guys’ was, so there is that in favor of pushing women’s athletics. Maybe sporty girls will have a positive influence on the jock subculture, but I think it is just as likely that the boys will turn the girls into binge-drinking, anti-intellectual bullies.
Don’t get me wrong, our obsession with sports does not speak well of men.
Reg, when my youngest daughter was in HS we hosted a girls lacrosse team from England. The team was from a private school and considered an elite team. They were terribly outmatched against our girls Most of the Brits had wooden sticks, only see those on the res in box lacrosse. They were fun to host and their favorite food, corn on the cob. Girls lacrosse is not at all like the men’s game and Native American girls don’t play lacrosse on the reservations. Honestly, I have never seen an international lax game unless we consider a team from Canada to be international. Stay safe buddy.
Alternatively, rather than paying and traveling to watch men who are likely to be obnoxious, spoiled, violent, and seething with hostility toward whites and the US play children’s games, one can head over to one’s local park and watch boys them. Or even play a sport oneself. Or enjoy the great outdoors in any number of other ways that don’t require supporting or being party to odiously Woke professional sports.
“Isn’t lacrosse seen as solely a girls’ sport in Britain?”
It is, as is hockey. But a lot of men play hockey in the UK, we actually won gold in the Seoul Olympics.
Well, I can confidently say that they’re a religious sect from the desert. Apparently about 2% of the US population. I’ve seen them wearing funny little hats that offer no sun protection…
That’s an amazing article and worth the read. In particular, the proposed *new* base salary from the company is \$45,000 a year with annual 3k increase, this in NYC.
I assume these people love being “influential” more than they love a decent standard of living, which explains a lot of their vindictive witch hunts – it’s all they have.
Well, that might make it worth watching a women’s soccer game. Because as it is now, it’s a total snoozefest.
The simplest way to get equal treatment would be to just abolish womens sports entirely and have every sport be coed. But even then you’d still have funding and admissions bonus disparities between sports and different teams (varsity, junior varsity, etc) within the same sport that people could claim amount to disparate impact discrimination against women (and different classes/races/geographic areas etc).
All you have to do is look at golf. College golf scholarships are given out to women who pretty much can’t break 80. Men who don’t average 74 or 75 have no chance for a free ride and may end up as servers at Olive Garden. This is discrimination. And since golf isn’t solely about power, and women get to play from forward tees, you can’t blame this on biology or the male strength advantage.
I see Kyle’s point though – he’s writing that the Iowa Women’s Field Hockey team didn’t seem upon first blush to be a serious or high-level athletic enterprise but rather a social club arranged around travel and hitting a ball about. In such a case, is the travel part even necessary or something worth the expense if teams of a similar level of competition could probably be found within 30 miles of campus?
At least in the case of BIG10 Football, it’s a serious athletic enterprise justifying the necessity to fly the team across the Midwest to find competitive peers. You may object that BIG10 Football is too serious of an athletic enterprise (and the correlated academic exercise not serious enough), but it’s a thing that’s wholly different than what Kyle was describing. Indeed, the football programs generate excess revenue to fund other athletic programs which cannot self-fund. (Perhaps a better compromise would be directing the football revenue into academic programs).
1. Men like sports a LOT more than women. Men play more, men watch more, men spend more. Pushing for total equality in this area is just pushing some people into something they aren’t really that into, while preventing others from doing something they love.
2. Budgets are limited. There are two ways to make things equal, add more opportunities for women, or take away opportunities for men. Title IX proponents always hype the former and pretend like the latter isn’t happening.
3. Football is huge, in all aspects – popularity, number of players, and budget required – and there is no corresponding female version. This exacerbates the problem in #2 above. You have to cut a lot of men’s sports if you want to have a football team.
But the mostly feminist, mostly lesbian women that play college sports are getting their f-ed up world view forced on them, good and hard, so I guess I’ve done a 180 on the topic and, like you, I have no objection to Title IX.
The only real way to fight this is for real females to stop joining and playing College level sports.
If they did that the whole house of cards would collapse since there aren’t enough of these transgendered males to support a viable female sports team and compete between schools.
Of course giving up sports for young ladies would be rather difficult since a lot of them rely on sports scholarships to attend college.
But, why they hand out scholarships for people to play sports seems to be non sequitur.
Hardcore trolling is the world we deserve.
Regardless of whether you want or don’t want the vaccine, some people do and they should be able to get it. I do take Vit. D and zinc.
In a large number of male prisons they already segregate the population by homosexuality or whether they’re convicted of sex crimes. Something about the main prison population not wanting to put up with those types of behavior.
Hope’s pronouns may be she/her, but that jawline is all he/him.
I was generally neutral, or disinterested with a beneficent attitude towards women’s soccer until the recent girl power turbo-dyke iteration of the sport/the U.S. Women’s Team. At least the girls 15 years ago were somewhat pretty, wholesome, and sporty but feminine.
Since the most recent nonsense, I’ve become an active detractor of the sport and the U.S. Women’s Team. Tasked with representing the United States in international competition, the most outspoken members made it clear that they were playing for the glory of only one half of the nation.
Only then did I find it worth mentioning the ridiculous fact that players on the team were dating/engaged to be wed to other players on the team (and players on other nations’ teams). Imagine if LeBron and KD were embroiled in a public off-again, on-again romance. What would that say about the seriousness with which NBA players treated their game?
Then, of course, it was the caterwauling about getting paid less than the U.S. Men’s team (for whom I similarly held detached disinterest) in years other than World Cup years. They were interviewed on 60 minutes or somesuch, choking out canned platitudes without much thought, and running down the men’s team to make their point.
So I got into an argument with a feminist type about it. After expressing my general disinterest, I countered to the disparate pay argument by asking what their claim was – were the U.S. Women’s team members claiming that they were better at soccer than the men? Or were they claiming that they were better at women’s soccer than the men are at men’s soccer? The actual claim is clearly the former, but stated as the latter. My solution – which I think brought the controversy to a head – was to take all of the money allocable to both national teams and pay it to the team who wins a best of three matches series. I could not find any agreement on this score.
Just look at the Scandinavian countries if you want to see how much further we can fall before there is any rebound.
I thought of the Russians and E. Germans. First of all, they allocated far too much money on sports, especially sports that no one really cares about (e.g. female shot put) because they thought that it would bring them international prestige. Yes, E. German could only make Trabants and not Mercedes but they could beat the West in track and field. The Communist economy was just riddle with these kind of misallocations so they could be #1 in steel production but meanwhile you couldn’t get a roll of toilet paper.
Second, some of their practices (hormones and drugs) were highly damaging to the health of their athletes.
So yes if the government pours enough money into sports they can achieve “success” but at a high price that is not really worth the cost.
Never heard of jeni’s before. Thanks.
Looks like responsibly sourced dairy.
May indeed be where it’s headed, but people don’t want to admit the implications.
Turned around or flipped on itself would make it Title XI, as in Joe Biden is a puppet of Xi in the destruction of the US, its culture, and its institutions.
Just by way of commenting. Beginning maybe in the 1920s and picking up speed thereafter, it was hip for parents to sign on to the mutilating trend with infant circumcision of their baby boys. But you can’t lay the blame on women alone. Even back then, intact (uncut) fathers were only too anxious to have their sons “done” because, you know, it was the latest thing, a healthy thing for the kid. Cleaner, they believed. Would prevent masturbation, hip joint disease and 100 other potential conditions.
Urban parents couldn’t sign up for this fast enough. It was part of middle and upper class upwardly-mobile outlook. So, I’d say that’s the beginning of the knife-in-the-genitals-as-cure-for-everything mentality. Only a matter of time before marginally confused little kids needed an even more drastic “cure”.
This circumcision schit all started in the western world with the English/British while the rest of Europe never bought into it, not at all. And Amerika being a colony of Britain, well, there ya go!
What Percentage of the Population is Transgender 2020
Top of the list: Delaware, with 10,213 trannies per 100,000 population. SMH.
Sites that have since been labeled “misinformation” by corporations that deal in misinformation claimed it was David Bailey. To quote Tim Pool, “I dunno, man.”
“The LPGA just ceased to exist.”
But on the other hand, this current action by “President” Biden will give men not good enough to play in men’s pro sports entry into the women’s leagues. For example, men who can’t make it in men’s pro football will now have bright futures in women’s football leagues.
Who knows? Maybe they could even find a spot for Colin Kaepernick on one of the teams.
6’ tall… 2’ standing leap… and… 100% feminine and gorgeous
Haha! He really does!
I agree with your statement. As a “frontline worker” and a “hero” (I’m a performance artist acting as a HS teacher for 26 yrs) I want to do the heroic thing and offer you my vaccine.

Wokelism is about rolling back the Sexual Revolution without having to admit they were wrong. Terrifying women back into the home.
I remembered the name, but didn’t realize “he/she” partnered with Nasty Nastase. Must have been entertaining.
No. It’s about peddling anything that will turn a profit, be it diamonds, junk bonds, gangsta rap, drugs, booze or pornography; and if you’ve been taught your entire life by your holy men and holy books that the goyim you’re peddling to are less than you, any harm the merchandise you’re peddling may cause them is a concern secondary to the ones you have about the profitability of your enterprise.
Same as it ever was. If you want world peace gotta get the birth rates down to the death rates somehow.
There’s always some bizarre anecdote or another here at Unz. Well, anecdotes are like a\$\$holes. Everyone has them. I have a cousin who got a full athletic scholarship, very well-earned, after ears of hard work. She is a very well-rounded athlete who could excel at pretty much anything, but ultimately chose a sport that was less competitive so she could get that scholarship.
I’m not entirely convinced that’s true, though it may well be, but then even if it is true, I’m not sure that really helps your case. If it’s true that half the student body isn’t particularly interested, that just raises the question of whether disproportionate resources are devoted to ports that women don’t care for, or even nonathletic extracurriculars like band, theater, or dance.
Men’s interests and preferences don’t determine everything anymore. That you believe they should reflects your own unwarranted sense of entitlement that the world revolve around men. Apart from that, I’m not at all sure you’d like the results of a culture that sees vigorous athletic activities as a primarily masculine pursuit.
East Germans took pride in being a spartan utilitarian society so they wouldn’t have made luxury cars even if they could. That was for the decadent westerners.
The reason there are always shortages of basic essentials in command economies is that politicians want to be popular, so set artificially low prices for these things, ensuring that they wind up on the black market instead of in the official stores.
None of your high school cheerleaders has won a silver medal in Olympic figure skating. Sasha Cohen has.
Fallon Fox had the “guts” to crush a women’s skull in the ring, so I am guessing plenty of other trans athletes would have the guts to take on this women I’ve never heard of.
LOL! You sound like the negroes who feel they’re entitled to the fruits of someone else’s hard work too.
Kathy regularly remarked ‘Thanks for nothing bitches!’.
A typical communist trick is to declare no difference where there is, and a huge chasm where none exists. To reach the point when the average person is perfectly comfortable holding two contradictory ideas in their mind and believing both.
“If they can make you believe absurdities, they can make you commit atrocities.” (Voltaire)
The reality is not just a female-identified Cristiano Ronaldo dominating a women’s game, but that the last 20 guys they cut from the Portuguese National Team would basically be just as dominant.
This, and the appointment of Richard Transgender Levine as Health Secretary are what it seems, a giant “F.U.” to Middle America.
To make suburban moms and dads watch their darling soccer-playing daughters kicked and having their legs broken by a giant negro male “transgender”. Who will later rape them in the “Female” bathroom.
To make you not only unable to criticize the authoritarian “corona lockdown”, any criticism of the policies will be labelled “transphobic” and earn you several points less in your “social credit” and probably make you lose your job.
The Democrats just want power, and this is a basic “do you see the deer as a horse?” test, similar to the “2+2=5” from 1984.
Everyone who fails to recognize the truth and justice in Biden’s TransOrder is an enemy and will be punished. The Dems are smoking them out, wherever they may be.
This also lets them “vet” the military; the fact that most of our troops vote Republican has stuck in their craw for a generation. NPR today was full of “concern” over the fact that there are people who are not enthusiastic Leftists in the military. NPR also discussed the fact that some people in the military even get special training that could make them dangerous as civilians.

Forget Christine Ronaldo; the Australian national Women’s Soccer Team (ranked 5th in the world) was beaten 7-0 in a game against fifteen year-old boys in 2016.
“If Cristiano Ronaldo decides to cut off his…”
Would he need to cut off anything? If so, that would imply that those who choose not to undergo any surgery are to be denied the ability to live out their desired gender, and that the biological determinists were right all along.
The Jews have been circumcising their male infants for at least 3,000 years and it never turned them trannie before.
Can’t we all just get along? Can’t we drop competitive sports and just enjoy wedding dancing?
Feast your eyes on these figures, lads; I don’t think that is any argument about who the men are and who the women are here in the Caucasus.

Karsten Braasch (born 14 July 1967) is a German former professional tennis player. His highest ATP singles ranking was World No. 38, which he reached in June 1994. His career-high in doubles was World No. 36, achieved in November 1997. He was well-noted for his service motion and his habit of smoking during changeovers.
Braasch competed in a “Battle of the Sexes” contest against the Williams sisters (Venus and Serena) at the 1998 Australian Open when he was ranked 203. Braasch was described by one journalist as “a man whose training regime centred around a pack of cigarettes and more than a couple bottles of ice cold lager”. He nonetheless defeated both sisters, playing a single set against each, beating Serena 6–1 and Venus 6–2. Braasch was thirty years old at the time, while Venus and Serena were seventeen and sixteen, respectively.
I used to do a lot of business with a guy whose teenage daughter had an eye injury requiring immediate treatment. The Dr. that they wound up getting was Renee Richards. This was around 1984-85.
He told me he didn’t even realize that the Dr. was a transsexual and only realized who she was at the end of treatment.
Said she was very competent and a good Dr., so I assume it all turned out well.
Thanks for that. I’m seeing little echoes and traces of something that’s old, really old.
I wonder if Yamnaya horse riders would find a bit of this to be familiar.
I like to play sports, but mostly individual sports like running, skating and swimming. I run, go to the rink, and go swim laps by myself but that isn’t really the same. I do confess that I would use my kids to play sports with when they young before they got good and joined teams. But I can’t think of any other moms I know who did. Mostly there are no places for women to play pick up games. The very few women who would do it can’t find the other very few women who want to. Maybe the tennis club? The closest thing would be maybe an exercise class or a bridge club. Women will workout next to strangers at the gym or exercise class or swim laps. I know bridge is not a regular physical sport, but the bridge club will give you a partner to play with, so a stranger for what amounts to like a pick up game.
But, yeah, you are pretty much right.
I knew a very famous ballerina who had to do exercises every day of her life to avoid being in constant pain. Ballet makes your body do things it’s not designed to do.
She had a very long career, including taking a break to have children, and went back to ballet and was still at the top of her game. She’s still active today in her 80’s, though no longer dancing professionally. So there are exceptions, but in general, most ballerinas are done by their mid 20’s, if not earlier.
In the prison I worked in there was a “faith-based” wing where religious prisoners could go, and it seemed like a lot of the gender-challenged prisoners got religion once they were locked up, and opted to spend their recreational hours practicing in the choir where there was safety in numbers.
Expect a lot of this nonsense, since the Dems don’t have any policies other than ‘fundamental transformation.’ This is 0bama’s line naturally, as no one who loves their country seeks to‘fundamentally transform’ it.
“hundreds of women’s teams that absolutely nobody will ever care about could be funded. ”
But I bet the ladies had more legit credentials as student athletes. Universities running professional minor league sports teams with exploited, often Black, players is wrong IMO.
If you like rhetorical tricks they could recharacterize the men’s teams as open division athletics (open to all athletes) and the women’s team as XX division athletics (as in their sex chromosomes.) That is sort of done with downs syndrome athletics.
In Thailand, the ladyboy is often seen as being magical. They are also seen as cursed, atoning for misdeeds from a previous life.
Has anyone found a link between declining fertility and women’s increasing participation in sports?
She got in trouble a while ago for beating her wife.
Totally OT, Covid related.
The YUGE change in UK vaccination policy that I noted here (from the three week interval recommended by Pfizer to a three MONTH interval recommended by no one) is being questioned, as reports from Israel say just one jab isn’t enough to give more than 33% protection, whereas two jabs in 21 days gives 95%.
I presume the decision was made in the light of knowing the projected vaccine supply levels which obviously weren’t good.
Looks like the Brits are going to give a lot of oldies poor protection against Covid, rather than giving half the number of people good protection. “A very brave decision” as Sir Humphrey would say.
uh no. It isn’t even sharing. Men who want to play sports outnumber women who do by at least 10 to 1. So, a fair “share” would be to fund women’s sports at somewhere around 10% of the amount spent on men’s.
The Olympics will also be destroyed.
Trannies with balls will enter the women’s events and take all the Gold medals.
The genuine female Olympic athletes should protest by fistfighting at the Games.
Is there any data correlating parents who circumcise their sons with parents that “transition” a child?
If anything, in the United States, at least, the incidence of circumcision has decreased over the past three decades.
Sydney Morning Herald?
An article from last March (2020) in that newspaper reports,
[continued from above break]
Ann Wolfe is past it but obviously you have never seen her fight. Believe me, Ann Wolfe, in her prime, would destroy the average male NON-FIGHTER who weighed below 160lbs in shape and fat out of shape slobs or people who don’t know how to fight at 200lbs and below. Just simply do a search for Ann Wolfe. Could Ann Wolfe beaten some sub-par Tranny that could not compete with males as a fighter and then became a female back then? ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Wolfe would have beaten the crap out of some Tranny pretend athlete.
There shouldn’t exist officially-backed segregated sports. If there are official programs at all, let there be solely one league or competition and let the participants be a selection from the best among men and women. But we must acknowledge that such programs are unfair to the non-best men who are excluded, as well as to non-best women who are excluded.
Why should a tiny minority of women receive benefits from these programs to the exclusion of the vast majority of women?
Surely allowing men to participate in women’s sports is only an American thing and it won’t affect events such as Wimbledon or the women’s World Soccer Cup or the Olympics, since other nations will have a say and I dare say 99% will laugh at the idea..
Any discussion of circumcision in the US that does not include the name John Harvey Kellogg is grossly uninformed. He didn’t just invent corn flakes, and he had an obsession about masturbation. Neither has anything to do with mentally disturbed men in dresses.
You don’t know much. Learn more then get back to us.
Yep. I’ve moved to a “pass the popcorn” mentality.
Can’t wait for this policy to work its way up to women’s pro sports, particularly the National soccer team.
Putting Transgenders back in girls sports, looks like China Joe’s plan to get women off the playing field and back in the kitchen.
I was thinking the same thing.
Not in the case of athletics, it isn’t.
In other words, young girls are spending more time exercising and thinking nabout their future and less time chasing boys.
That sounds like a fabulously successful policy to me.
Higher education in the USA is now so fully a force for evil,
So long as it is at women’s expense, not men’s.
That’s a nice laundry list of unsupported nonsense you have there. A suggestion: Pick one point and make a coherent case so we can have a rational discussion about it.
He didn’t state a position. He called me a “ditz” and told me to get back in the kitchen. He got the response he deserved.
This sounds like a bad idea. I advocated and voted for the other team and lost this time. There’s not much I can do. Let others fight this one. If my daughters pick up a serious sport, maybe I’ll need to be more engaged. Otherwise, I wish everyone well.
What’s with the tunics and pantaloons? Can’t keep up with fashion these days!
I’m not sure having one team each year (out of a conference of also-rans) barely good enough to get heemed in the playoffs by an SEC or ACC school qualifies Big 10 football as “serious.” I’ll grant you it is probably a revenue generating enterprise as midwestern football might be marginally more entertaining to the folks out there than their other option – literally watching corn grow.
That’s already been happening for the past year, maybe longer.
It’s true, Rosie.
To answer your question, I don’t know. But what happened was totally wrong. This EO is also wrong, but my feeling is, it’s not yet my fight. Let women fight this one on their own.
Clyde——-Women should have let the men enjoy their own exclusively male clubs and organizations,but they didn’t.
The skill levels of goalies with the ball at their feet have been improving, spurred by changes to various rules, most notably the passback rule and encroachment in the penalty area from bye-kicks. Some, obviously have very fine skills and their signings command premium fees, such as the transfer of Allison, the Brazilian (guy), from Roma to Liverpool a couple of years ago – fee reported to be around £65 million.
Here’s a glimpse of fancy footwork by iconic Colombian goalie Rene Higuita:
Not only did Sasha Cohen win a silver medal at the Olympics, she also was on the podium at 3 World Championships. And then she got a degree from Columbia. Not so bad for a cheerleading reject.
You’re right, and this Executive Order isn’t a law either. But it has the force of law, is based on law, and can become the basis of more (bad) laws.

Glad my three daughters got their scholarships before Logan and Wyatt decided they were girls all along due to misgendering by nazi doctors
You haven’t thought this through. Transgenders insist they don’t have to transition, they just have to say “I’m a woman” and we have to accept it. So that opens the way for any underachieving male athlete to say “I’m a woman, put me in the woman’s comp” and lo and behold he starts winning, nabbing the prize money, college scholarships etc. Teenage boys aren’t stupid, there have been cases of them doing exactly this and it will get worse as word spreads.
Female (Upper) middleclass feminists were and are still the main enablers of the woke-craze. So if any female athletes object to it, you should go after said (upper) middle class feminists.
I actually looked up the roster of the U of Iowa women’s field hockey team. Anyone who is interested can look it up themselves. They are all white girls with trim bodies, mostly with long hair, pretty to OK faces, like most of us.
One of them is English, which I think interesting.
I think Kyle is full of shit.
You are judging women’s sports on what you want to watch and how they change women’s bodies.
Shouldn’t we judge them on what women want to play?
I don’t watch any men’s sports regularly. Does that mean men’s sports should be eliminated? I would say no. I don’t see why biological males should be allowed to ruin women’s sports for them. I don’t understand why these guys who “win” in women’s sports feel they have accomplished anything. I was brought up to believe that without fairness, winning is less than nothing.
Instituting a system that allows for legal cheating just makes a mockery of women’s sports.
That was bracing to see. Not to trivialize it at all, but it was very much like that Riverdance stuff that was popular 20 years ago. There’s nothing more beautiful than a beautiful girl. Great to see that there are still people lime that in the world. Thank you!
Rosie, I admire your pluck. Stick with your point of view, too many afraid to express their real feelings. However, maybe dial back a bit, you’ve been compared to Tiny Duck.
Luxury cars no but they surely would have made better cars than the Trabant if they had the resources – the Soviets who were just as doctrinaire made the Lada which was much closer to a “real” (if somewhat obsolete) car, having a steel body and a 4 cylinder water cooled automotive engine rather than a cardboard body and a 2 cyl. 2 stroke air cooled motorcycle motor.
There were many reasons for the constant shortages in command economies but underpricing (thus causing demand to exceed supply) was certainly one of them and ONE (but not the only) cause of underpricing was fear of popular backlash if prices were raised. The Novocherkassk massacre of 1962 began when workers demonstrated against an increase in dairy and meat prices that had been recommended by economists because the Soviet meat prices were below the cost of production, thus giving collective farms no incentive to produce meat and ensuring constant shortages. But there was no trust or understanding on the part of the Soviet public that increases in meat prices would lead to more supply.
I recommend the book “Red Plenty” as a fun and educational read. It is a novel but it adheres closely to historical fact. The feat is made even more impressive by the fact that the author does not speak Russian and worked entirely from translated material.
This is a value judgment on your part. First of all, I doubt the difference is that large, but even if it is, I reject your premise that women’s interest in sports is fixed and unchangeable, regardless of cultural expectations.
There is no particular reason why current interest level should determine the allocation of resources. Does women’s health matter? If so, does it matter as much as men’s health?
If so, encouraging women’s athletics is the right thing to do regardless of whether you think it’s “fair.” Fairness is an important value. It is not the only value.
All I hear about is what fantasies we all are and how we’re going to bring down the health care system with our fatness. Now, I hear a bunch of whining about policies that encourage women’s athleticism.
(Mr. Unz, lift the damned 3-comments-per-hour-rule! I am massively outnumbered here. I’m ok with that, but I ought to have the ability to respond when I get 20 hostile replies to a comment.)
To be fair you can go to college and NOT PARTICIPATE IN COLLEGE SPORTS. Live on campus or live off campus, you can play organized sports with the locals.
The townie sports are much more fun, and without the elitist garbage.
Now people, you need to stop being bigoted about this. When all the real women are forced out of women’s sports, it’ll just be trannies competing against trannies. Won’t that be great?
It’ll become Special Olympics II!
I think ancient Romans like Caligula would have enjoyed watching tranny sports–if he could have executed the losers afterward or made the winner have sex with a horse. Come to think of it, I think trannies would have liked this also, considering how often they threaten to commit suicide and prefer freakish sex.
Instituting a system that allows for legal cheating just makes a mockery of women’s sports.
You say that like it’s a bad thing…
Thanks for not being a petty, spiteful jerk.
Anyway, the funny thing is that college costs have gone through the roof since then. Are the colleges really so hard up for cash they can’t swing men’s wrestling and girl’s lacrosse? I seriously doubt it. They’re not cutting these programs because of Title 9. They’re doing it because of executive greed.
People who hate women will blame women first. They will ignore all the makework jobs for black rioters, the out-of-control executive salaries, and all manner of wasteful spending while they (pretend to) take universities’ claims of poverty at face value. Moreover, I think it’s deliberate, malicious scapegoating. Misogynists may be stupid, but they’re not that stupid.
Thanks for the links. Several people have mentioned Pritzker so I’ll look into it.
You are a humaniform, bereft of individuality or self expressive awareness. All your thought are own.
I don’t understand how any right-winger can be against this. The end of Feminism.
What do women want to play? I don’t know, but I think that more feminine women tend to prefer more feminine activities, and more masculine women tend to prefer more masculine activities.
I think a bigger question is, do women watch women’s sports?
I don’t see that women follow very much women’s soccer, for instance.
I think that there may be more men watching women’s sports (although the reasons many times have little to do with the sport).
As for the rest, I think we are in agreement, I don’t think that “transgenders” should compete in women’s sport. Heck, I don’t think even actual hermaphrodites such as Caster Semenya should.
Oh, I wasn’t pretending to give a complete history of nonjewish cirn’n. There’s plenty of that all over the interwebz. Just saying (I guess not clearly) that folks seem to think that slicing genitals is somehow a good idea for either prevention (of countless conditions in the case of infant circ) OR a cure for mild mental disturbance (in the case of turning boys into girls).
About JH Kellogg, I was familiar with his crazy ideas 25 years ago when my son was born. That’s all I needed to know.
Thanks for the comment, Mr. Lift.
a) Yeah, that was a file photo. In fact, I even had some wording to that effect due to this photo didn’t represent well the little gym I was in, but you can’t be too picky with “gym people with faces masks”. I think I’ve heard of these Orange Theory gyms or maybe just passed one by on the road.
b) As for your handle, I don’t lift, in general. I have bench-pressed over 2 x my body weight when I was way younger, and I’m sure I could lift my body weight on a machine now. However, with free weights, I’m not so sure I could do it right away I have not done squats ever, so I don’t know about that.
c) I go to the gym for Cardio, and occasional other bar-bell exercises, that’s all
d) There’s no way I want to put pictures and other ID info. on the site.
That means you’ll just have to be an irregular reader of Peak Stupidity. If you get tired of being irregular you can always go for a Morning Constitutional. “Irregular”, get it? ;-}
I’m waiting for some NCAA women’s coach to convince a bunch of NAIA level players to assert that they’re women, and then beat UConn by 60 in the finals.
Jon Stryker, you mean?
I don’t think there’s anything demonic, or fundamental, about it. Transgenderism is just a very useful stick with which to beat conservative Christians and social conservatives in general. It’s a way to back conservative Christians into a corner in the hope that they’ll react and then there’ll be an excuse to give them another kicking.
The Religious Right backed the Republican Party aggressively back in the 80s and 90s. Now it’s pay-back time.
It’s also a useful stick with which to beat the Deplorables.
I don’t think the elites give a damn about the trannies, but they do care very much about putting the boot into conservative Christians and Deplorables.
Plus it’s a great way to distract attention away from economic issues.
Joe Biden doesn’t want people focusing on things like the debt does he?
There are a few True Believer zealots among the elites but I really don’t think most elites care about anything apart from maintaining and increasing their wealth and their power. They’ll use any tools at all in order to do that.
It seems this would be something for the Supreme Court.
Those involved with women’s sports are fools if they don’t fight this and other things legally. Obviously you need to be one someone with standing.
I suggest everyone read “The Power of the Powerless” by (successful) Communist dissident Vaclav Havel.
Folks may think it is pointless to fight things with the law but as Vaclav Havel explains, even in a rigged system, it matters tremendously. This isn’t a traditional dictatorship we find ourselves in: it is bureaucratic dictatorship where nobody involved wants to take responsibility for being a dictator. Everyone involved wants to see themselves as simply following the rules.
The left relies on the law heavily for legitimacy. They are of course completely incoherent but they like to see themselves as perfectly totally lawful and they never want to see themselves as anything but orderly. Getting called out legally and having to answer for their incoherence completely spoils their party.
It would be a joy to argue such a case! Hour after hour of comparing men’s and women’s sports records, race times, weightlifting totals, highlighting the enormous athletic differences between men and women, while acting all serious about it. The men’s bench press record is 770 pounds while the women’s record is around 450 pounds. Women basketball players have a vertical leap a foot less than their male counterparts.
Whatever the decision, it would be easy to expose the farce, if anyone wants to.
I suspect here in the popcorn gallery everyone just wants to see Usain Bolt put on pink sneakers and win everything.
I just looked myself. In fact two are English and another is an Aussie. Then further investigation reveals two Dutch girls (sisters) and a Belgian girl.
So . . . drug testing is out too I guess?
When the left does these absurd things, aren’t they begging to be dragged around in court? I think most of them aren’t even used to facing coherent disagreement.
Folks like sports stats and the difference between men and women in athletic measures is really huge. All the data junkies could just go on and on just poring over eye popping numbers.
Easiest case in the world.
Exposing the total farce of the left would be the big victory in itself. The left does not want to be considered clowns, although clowns they are. Look what Mister No Shirt Buffalo Horns elicited. Now imagine he exposed them as clowns legally, in a court of law?
We have a solution in Australia; let them beat up the second grade women players; https://www.williamofockham.com/2021/01/16/kick-long-smash-packs/
Or as I heard it put, “They’ve ruined everything, everywhere, for everybody.”
Life imitates art. In this case, the new Bidumb administration imitates the movie “Idiocracy”.
The true cost of men’s football, at State U, is not just XY-women’s wrestling. The actual number is closer to the entire cost of the state university.
That is because without football, popular political support for the university would wane. The legislature would respond by eliminating 90% of the departments (starting with the X Studies programs so popular with jocks).
The Professor of Football, at State U, is typically the highest paid, public employee in the state.
In fairness to him, and his high six-figure assistants, they’re typically the only faculty who actually teach and, moreover, get paid for results.
(The top whatever number of highly paids is still dominated by those quack, clinical profsters of medicine.)
When I was in East Berlin just before the wall came down the whole place was literally falling apart. In another ten years it would have been Cuba. The WWII vet older relative I was staying with in BRD had just been over to the DDR for the first time recently and was absolutely stunned. “Alles Kaput!” is all he kept saying. My UK professors were still trying to argue at the time that the DDR was, if not the superior model at least competitive enough that the Hungarian/Yugoslavian(!) “third way” was preferable to Western capitalism.
All a house built on clouds.
The genetic females involved in the affected sports can stop the insanity in just a few events.
Refuse to compete.
NCAA makes money off of sports.
And more importantly, the psychologically damaged males will be the focus of ire.
If no one shows up for an event, does he event exist?
It’s rare that I agree with Jonathan Mason, but, yes, scholarships for academic achievement only.
The objection to Title IX is that it is being used to gut a bunch of men’s sports in favor of women’s sports, since most sports don’t make money at the collegiate level outside of football and men’s basketball. Those two subsidize all the rest of them, but women aren’t as interested in sports as men are, so more men’s sports have to be shelved to achieve equal participation rates between men and women, even if the unpopular men’s sports are still more popular than female sports that are being kept. This is based on the dubious assertion that men and women find collegiate sports equally interesting.
A lot of these men’s sports at smaller universities produce a lot of Olympic athletes ( or rather they did ) in sports like gymnastics and swimming have now been abolished in favor female team sports like field hockey which by definition is not going to produce a lot of Olympians from one university ( Since there is only one national team attending the Olympics ). A lot of the female students getting athletic scholarship aren’t serious about the sports anyway, but they take the scholarship for obvious reasons and a lot of men who could have a career in sports beyond college are left out in the cold because their sport isn’t football or basketball.
Last I heard the IOC won’t stop a man competing in a woman’s event as long as he can get his testosterone levels down. Doesn’t matter that he may already have developed superior height and strength before he starts playing with his hormones. As for Wimbledon, the UK is just as woke as the USA so it is only a matter of time before some man tries it.
A lot of posters here and elsewhere blame the success of the transgender movement on Big Pharma and I don’t doubt the medico-industrial complex is delighted to have this source of funds and guinea pigs, but it’s also a big covert backlash against women’s rights by people who want to deny they’re doing that.
Thank you, Jack D.
It doesn’t depend on the guy?
Let’s go to the videotape…
No touching and no eye contact? In America that’s after the wedding!
The Transgender Industrial Complex book had all of your answers
You forgot the “Baron.”
Yeah, that was a hell of gamble the Government there took, and a real strange one I thought, but it had/has incredible unanimity among Brits, from skeptic Peter Hitchens to all the mainstream experts. And if it fails, and fails hugely, it’s something Boris, who’s on the precipice already, will presumably have to stand down over, and I think he should swing for it.
Yeah, that is a hell of a gamble the UK Government took spreading out the doses so widely, and a real reckless and desperate decision I think. But from everything I can tell it had/has great unanimity among both ordinary and public affairs-type Brits, from skeptic Peter Hitchens all the way to the mainstream medical experts.
And if it fails and fails hugely and lethally, it’s something Boris, who’s on the precipice already, would presumably have to stand down over, and I think he should swing for it. But at least the Conservatives have a huge majority and don’t have to hold an election for years, so someone else can step up and give it their best shot for awhile.
Uncle Miltie was transvestite, not “transgender”. You should read some of the stories in his adopted son’s memoir.
Einstein’s brain was brined for science, and Berle could have done something similar.
Supposedly Notre Dame did just that. Look what it got us:
A big UK problem is they put most of their chips on the home-grown Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine but they botched up the dosing. They probably could have gotten to 90% efficacy with the smarter Russian plan for that type of vaccine, but they wound up testing a dosing strategy that winds up stepping on its own feet.
I suspect there’s a lot of truth in that. What does the average non-college grad get out of his state’s state universities? Not much, ultimately – just the chance to root for the “home team”.
And can be fired at will.
If what you say is true this would be a good way of attacking universities, which action should be a part of any conservative populist movement. They are centers of power and influence and they belong to the enemy. I have long espoused the motto “abolish tenure”. Abolish College Football would be a good compliment to that.
As I say, it matters how often it happens. For most men this would be a hugely embarrassing thing to do, and the vast majority will never do it. They might win prize money, but they would also win the contempt of their peers, and since sports is as much about status as money that would be a big deterrent. Neither you nor I can intuit the size of the small remainder that will be willing to do such a thing, and that’s the quantity that’s important. If it’s small enough the wokesters continue to get away with it, but if it’s too big they don’t. We’ll just have to wait and see.
Hmm, I always had my best results lifting at home or at a small gym. Gym memberships are generally way too high and what you really pay for is relatively useless expensive machines that don’t work the stabilizer muscles and cause muscle imbalances. Machines are fine for older people, physically handicapped people or people healing injuries. Kettlebells are also an expensive tool that people believe is some kind of miracle breakthrough in fitness. There was a reason why kettlebells collected dust for SEVERAL decades except everywhere but Eastern Europe, they are cumbersome, wreck the wrists, elbows and forearms and dumbbells are far more practical and safer. Any kettlebell exercise can be performed with a dumbbell or dumbbells.
People, save yourself some money and buy a pair of dumbbells, weights can be as cheap as a penny or two a pound if you buy them second hand. You can do one exercise and maintain a good strength base and conditioning. Dumbbell cleans and presses/push presses work the entire body and cardiovascular system if done with enough reps and intensity. Hill sprints/runs/walking can’t be beat and burpees for are invaluable. For the elderly or out of shape, stick with just basic bodybuilding movements and IF possible by all means stay away from machines if you are able. Do compound exercises and stay away from fluff exercises that only isolate muscle groups, train your body as a single unit. Machines wreak havoc on your joints, the body is moving in an unnatural position. IF nothing else just simply walk every day or better yet swim. IF you are woefully out of shape just start off walking and build up slowly, or if you cannot do pushups do wall pushups or pushups off a table. Start slowly, small steps to the moon.
The Lada was a Fiat built in a plant that was bought from and built by Italians in Russia and turned over as a functioning car manufacture into Russian hands. The Fiat was renamed ‘Lada’. The Trabant was, as far as I know, the only car that was actually conceived of, developed and built in the Eastern block. The Moscwitch was an Opel (model Kadett) built in Russia under this new name. The Russians transported the whole industrial works and technical know-how from Germany after the war when they dismantled numerous industrial plants in Germany bolt by bolt to be rebuilt bolt by bolt in the SU.
I don’t know whether there was a Soviet (pre-Eastern block) car. If there had been, it would seem to have had shortcomings serious enough to be rather replaced by a “forcibly imported” foreign model.
“Plus it’s a great way to distract attention away from economic issues.”
Pretty much describes every political issue for the last 10 years.
Yes, that book has been mentioned before. Thanks for reminding me to get a copy.
In other words, tell them “We prefer not to.” 😉
As I explained in another comment, if University administrations are cutting men’s sports on the grounds that they can’t afford both, that’s not women’s fault.
Again, I don’t think that is a necessary premise for the view that women’s sports should get equal funding. It is more than sufficient to point out that athletics is as important and beneficial for women as it is for men. Really, this is a ridiculous conversation for supposed right-wingers to even be having. Physical fitness has always been considered important on the Right, for women (future mothers) as well as men.
I don’t buy that and haven’t seen evidence for it. I have a woman in my family who got an athletic scholarship after working her a\$\$ off for it. I’m not going to say that’s the end of the matter, but I’m not going to take your word for it either.
Yeah, I would guess his wang is not exactly they/them either.
Thai ladyboy’s are better looking than ours.
This book is now nearly 18 years old. The effects of Title IX as interpreted are carefully documented, and the predictions by Gavora have proven rather prescient, unfortunately. I link to Amazon because of the summary and reviews.
Again, I don’t think that is a necessary premise for the view that women’s sports should get equal funding.
As usual, you aren’t actually paying attention to the facts as presented. See Gavora’s book linked above.
Physical fitness has always been considered important on the Right, for women (future mothers) as well as men.
And again, as usual you are moving the goalposts / conflating different things. “Physical fitness” for college women or women of any age in no way requires the extensive legal machinery of Title IX as currently interpreted. Running can be done in any park, yoga can be done on a dorm room floor, etc. This is obvious to any honest observer.
I leave you with this quote:
One thing that would be tremendously helpful is if people would stop making unwarranted assumptions.
We’re talking about having girls and women play men’s sports – games that were originally developed for men’s enjoyment and leisure or as competitive tests among men of physical prowess. These sports are not necessary or even conducive to female physical fitness. Many of these sports end up distorting women’s bodies and appearance. How is women’s college rugby, for example, necessary or positive for women’s health and fitness. They just allow and encourage these women to look grotesque.
I’m not sure what the point of the picture from the ’36 Olympics is supposed to be. The Nazis and pretty much everyone else at the time thought that female physical pursuits were mainly restricted to things like calisthenics, gymnastics, etc. And the Nazis were extremely sexist by today’s standards and excluded women from most occupations and public activities outside the home.
Yes I agree with you, JB. It depends on how may boys choose to call themselves transgender to win female races, etc.
Sure enough, the data don’t support this claim. Female high school athletes are only slightly more likely than men to even compete in college, let alone get a scholarship. The exception seems to be ice hockey, where girls are indeed much more likely to advance to college play.
Here are the percentages of high school participants who go on to compete in college:
First: sports where only one gender competes:
1. Football: 7.3
2. Wrestling: 3.0
3. Field Hockey: 10.1
Note that the number of football players and wrestlers combine to more than 10× the number of field hockey players. Based on that fact alone, male college athletes vastly outnumber female ones, though including cheerleaders might change that.
Now: sports where both genders compete, in descending order of probability of competing in college, with the male percentage in parentheses for comparison:
1. Ice hockey: 26.2 (12.3)
2. Lacrosse: 12.5 (12.8)
3. Swimming: 7.5 (7.2)
4. Soccer: 7.2 (5.6)
5. Cross-country: 7.1 (5.3)
6. Golf: 6.8 (5.9)
7. Track & field: 6.2 (4.8)
8. Softball: 5.6 (baseball 7.5)
9. Water Polo: 5.6 (4.8)
10. Tennis: 4.5 (4.9)
11. Basketball: 4.1 (3.5)
12: Volleyball:3.9 (3.7)
So, in tennis, lacrosse, and baseball/softball, men are more likely to advance to college play than women. In golf, swimming, water polo, basketball, and volleyball, women are more likely to advance by 1% more likely to compete in college. In all cases except hockey, the difference is<2%.
Now, setting aside the fairness question, it's clear that unserious girl athletes are waltzing into college sports with undeserved scholarships.
The Olympics is all about politics. The Olympics was destroyed when the United States turned it into a political event back in 1980.
Other nations will do whatever the US tells them to do.
I’ve posted many times the list of anti White especially White man Supreme Court orders that become laws and affirmative action laws that powerful White men imposed on other White men. Brown vs Topeka, Griggs Kaiser decisions by White men judges and every president from Eisenhower to the present have been anti White.
The foundations like Ford Rockefeller created the women’s movement 55 years ago and the foundations were White man institutions.
White men did it to the White race.
Exactly. Liberalism can’t stay still. They have to find new causes constantly. No matter how ridiculous, not just transgender bathrooms but re designing tampon packages with “ “ masculine” colors because pink flowers make men buying tampons for personal use uncomfortable.
Which was weird if they identify as women. If they’re really women why don’t they like pretty feminine packages?
Cleared my emails today. Endless crap from my Congress critter about ridding America of White supremacy.
I object to football and basketball because they are blackety blackety black. How can White men spend so much time watching black sports.
If all the women ice skaters and ballet dancers were black, I’d just stop watching.
To paraphrase Mandy Patinkin in The Princess Bride ” I don’t think the data you cite means what you think it means “. Women are more likely than men to want to play collegiate ice hockey? by a 2-1 margin? More likely to want to participate in soccer, golf, track and field, and basketball? There is no female professional soccer league, the women’s pro basketball league is a huge money loser underwritten by subsidies by the men’s league (NBA) and it’s team owners without which it would have folded twenty years ago. The PGA gets much bigger crowds and ratings than the LPGA.
The percentage of HS female field hockey players is higher than the percentage of male football players, despite the fact that no one save their families attend field hockey games, whereas I’m pretty sure college football outdraws everything sports related in the US other than professional football (NFL). Is there even a female professional hockey league? I’ve never heard of one, and I’m sure that even minor league men’s pro hockey outdraws it, there is an actual men’s professional lacrosse league, or at least there was, pre-covid19, is there a female version? I doubt it. And yet… more female participants in these sports get college athletic scholarships, thanks for inadvertently making most of my points.
Your commentary is all good. I grew up in Queens county NYC where we kids built snow forts and threw snowballs. This must have been longer and more intense in far north Buffalo
I have been walking up hills and swimming laps daily in breaststroke and front crawl for the last three months, mainly with the intention of developing my lung capacity as a way of resisting covid-19 complications.
The benefits have definitely been measurable, and I have had to buy new pants in a smaller size and my general energy level and libido is much improved.
Today I will be traveling to a location that is 8000 feet above sea level, which will be the real test of the exercise regime.
One benefits of the swimming is that before I started the most recent program of exercise, my legs were extremely stiff, often to the point of being painful and now they are not stiff at all and I am much more flexible.
I definitely recommend daily swimming. At one time of my life I was swimming about half a mile a day for approximately 15 years, until I move to a place where I no longer had easy access to an exercise pool.
That led to a general loss of good health, weight gain, shoulder problems, and circulatory problems. Since resuming daily lap swimming all these have gone away.
When these decisions are taken to the ultimate conclusion, you have men like Caster Semenya, the South African athlete, who strangely is allowed to dominate the women’s track events. And the media promote his cause rabidly.
Indeed, we shall have to wait and see but it seems to me that you’re very close to saying ‘Meh, only one or two girls are going to be affected”. Like the woke who shrug off cancel culture because, hey, it only affected this one person and she/he was a jerk anyway. The real danger is in the chilling effect these cases have on all the others. How many girls and women are going to drop out of sport or never take it up in the first place because they don’t want to be in this position? As one of the other commenters said, women’s sport could end up being tranny only.
It’s not going to be a cake walk for men’s sports either. ROGD transgenders are mostly female and a fair few of them cite a liking for sport as one of the reasons they think they must really be men. So we could see girls trying to join men’s teams and that’s not going to end well either. How long before they start demanding standards drop so they can ‘fairly’ compete?
I think you’re not paying attention.
So you think that people like “Jennifer” Pritzker or “Rachel” Levine dress like (ugly) women because “it’s a great way to distract attention away from economic issues”?
No, it’s really what they believe. And there is a much larger amount of trannies, transgenders or androgynes (feminine men, masculine women) among the elite (politicians, celebrities) than among the general population. Not all completely open or admitted.
They do it, and they promote it, because they really believe in it. And they will promote it more and more, until it crushes people’s souls, forcing them to deny truth and say 2+2=5.
“It’s the civil rights issue of our time”, said Biden. Yes, indeed.
We all know the Who, the question is the Why. They are in love with blacks because they know they’ll never “achieve equality” and will forever be suffering soulfully, and that’s like having a nuclear fuel rod powering the SS Equality.
But the trans? There are hardly any–or were before they got started, with all this– which makes the whole project all the more sinister, and they’re forcing such abominable shit upon society it’s like they’re daring us to revolt.
WTF? I specifically said ice hockey s an outlier. If you want to bitch about ice hockey, have at it.
So what? Male hockey players are also more likely to advance than male football players. I don’t see you crying about that.
Why should that determine what sports women get to play in college?
Where’s your evidence for this?
I don’t think that is so much a feature of liberalism as it is an elite device for continually distracting the people from any push for economic populism.
The impetus for this sh!t b doesn’t come from women, and I don’t really think it comes from liberals, either, though I could certainly be wrong. It comes from the elites.
They would sooner champion pedophile liberation than risk a pivot to economic issues.
Indirectly, yes that is exactly what is happening. The media promote this nonsense to give the people something to do that doesn’t threaten the plutocracy. People might still dress like womwn, but nobody would be paying attention but for the dynamic Doom is talking about.
Sorry, but we already have the MSM for that sort of whining.
We don’t need you & you’re adding nothing to the discussion.
Oh, but there is, if your goal is to wreck an established nation.
Every little bit of destruction counts, and they have a lot.
While there is of course an agenda to promote division on all possible aspects (race, sex, class, etc), I don’t think the transgender issue is *only* about that.
They care deeply about this issue, it’s clear. Just look at how many current celebrities and politicians are transgender, or gay or sexually far from normal in some way or another. Also the constant symbolism. And would some rich person dress like a woman if it was just to “create political division” and “distract people”?
Just look at the history of the Pritzker family and the huge wealth and influence they have.
Among other things, they promote ugly modern architecture (another of the elite pet projects) through the Pritzker Prize.
But look also at how much money and interest “Jennifer” Pritzker and her rich family throw into promoting “transgender studies”, “transgender in the military”, etc.
And that’s just part of it. Look at the immense effort to push it in the culture, the Wachowski “sisters”, formerly brothers, and how they are endlessly promoted despite having produced only failures in the last decade. Their latest project, a story with transgender themes, has “100% critics approval” but only “68% audience” (it’s increasingly common to see very different critics/audience scores).
To say that this is just a “distraction” is to say that, I don’t know, massive immigration is a “distraction”. No, it isn’t.
Yup, you got it. Distract everyone with these gender, pronoun and race issues even as they’re being robbed and put out of work. There’s no grassroots groundswell of demand for this but is an elite imposed program. Keep the chumps preoccupied with the elite owned media doing it’s part.
Having done some reading of commentators much more sensible and fair-minded than your typical Unz piglet (NAUCALT), it appears that college football is causing problems with Title 9 compliance.
A simple solution: Advocates could try to get it thrown out of the calculation and compliance judged by the remaining sports.
In the alternative, insist that any female-dominated activities (such as cheerleading) be included in compliance evaluations as well. (Apparently there is some resistance to this.)
Just keep nursing your hatred and gloating about the destruction of women’s sports, because finding reasonable solutions isn’t the point.
Mr. Anon, I agree. The college sportsball games, football being the biggest by a long shot, bring in BIG, BIG money into town on those 6 or 7 weekends in the fall. You are right that there are plenty of people with no degrees from the school (and I don’t fault them one bit for that nowadays) who act like this school is theirs, college football is their church, “da team” is their denomination, and the coach is their Pope. Those Saturdays are like their revival meeting weekends.
Not all, but some of these people wouldn’t have a life if (expensive) college football went away. They’d have to find new one in which the actual important things going on in their country mattered to them.
It’s one half of the Bread & Circuses.
That disproportionately harms White men, and disproportionately benefits black males, as you go on to suggest later.
Largely a function of them being obedient, rule following people.
If the rules say be mean, they are very good at being mean.
If the rules say be nice, they are very good at being nice.
Today the rules are to abolish themselves. We need better rules.
Colleges should not be promoting and funding a tiny group of elite female beneficiaries of gender segregation. If you want some low key intramurals or gym classes, fine. (But why not have those be self funded?)
Well , if this thing catches on, I would expect that in a decade or two we will be watching the Olympics and not seeing any of those second tier penis lacking athletes who seem to get so much publicity in today’s world
You’re not listening. I already said that it is the media push that is the distraction, not the behavior itself.
Though, media attention will certainly result in us getting more of the behavior.
I see you’re singling out women again, so I presume you’re fine with “tiny groups of elite male beneficiaries of ender segregation” that are not self-funded.
BTW, I have argued before that cheerleading is a sport. (See link.) Some people don’t like the symbolism of it (women on the sidelines). I don’t much care for it myself, but I do admire how women have made cheerleading an impressive athletic display in its own right.
They are like the breed of shepherd dog that bears their name, one of the best breeds in the world. (As this owner can happily testify, the dog is remarkably like the people who created it. Interestingly, that resemblance includes the stereotypes people have about it and sometimes their fear of it.)
Truth—Thanks for that dose of reality. Those are very nice looking athletic girls who are having a lot of fun. @Kyle seems to be living in some alternate universe (“short, fat”), or just trolling (“snot nosed, and pimply faced”).
The only way this is in ANY way fair is if the rule applies ONLY to those sports in which physical size and strength do not play any part in the outcome. Skiing, bowling, ice skating, curling, billiards, and Texas Hold ‘Em Poker come immediately to mind (although billiards and card games hardly qualify as “sports” since no athletic attributes are necessary).
The rub, of course, is that there’s not a democrat in the entire country who’s interested in fairness in any way, shape, or form. Fairness, along with empathy and compassion, are seen as weaknesses among democrats, just as honesty, ethics, and morality are seen as character flaws.
I have a relative, a retired auto engineer, who spent his career working for one of the big European car makers. He told me that back in the 1970s (i.e. when lots of people still thought communism was a serious competitor to capitalism) he and a group of his fellow engineers visited Berlin, both sides, first the West then the East.
When they crossed from West Berlin–with its Mercs and BMWs–to East Berlin–and saw their first Trabi putt-putting down the mostly deserted road–the entire tour bus burst into laughter, much to the indignation of their young Pioneer tour guide.
My relative said that–to him and his fellow auto engineers–this was decisive proof of the inferiority of communism to capitalism.
(Another thing he said, was that away from the big main roads, which were well maintained, East Berlin was largely still a ruin–decades after the end of the war. He speculated that this neglect was deliberate: It was intended by the authorities as a permanent reminder to Berliners of the harm the Anglo-Americans had done to them.)
Economically speaking, the ratio should be “Whatever the college wants it to be.”
Politically speaking, the ratio is, “Whatever the government says it has to be to keep the funding in place.”
The point being, that intercollegiate sports ultimately exist as a marketing arm for the university to differentiate itself from other schools. If having certain teams and a certain level of funding is still a net positive for the school, then they will still fund those programs. If it suddenly “costs more” than the benefits that are accruing, then they will cease those programs.
All Title IX is is a tax on federal funding that gets added into that marketing budget. If the mandates cause those net benefits to stop accruing, then the balloon gets squeezed in a different way and changes are made to pay the tax, but at no time will colleges ever turn off the federal spigot.
Everything is a cost-benefit analysis and just like any government regulation, scholarship limits never “create” opportunities, they just move them around.
Don’t know if I necessarily agree with it as “being fundamental”.
I think the answer is more cynical and simpler than that. The dems don’t really care about the outcome, they just care about winning elections and holding power.
They win elections by catering to the feelings of a certain level of ignorant voter. “Look at all these people who are mean to [group]! Vote for us and we’ll stop those meanies.” Then after they are elected they maintain credibility by doing whatever it is they think needs to happen to that group.
They’ve been very successful winning elections that way over the years, so successful that they’ve had to get more and more granular and deeper and deeper into the bucket with their definition of who’s being oppressed.
We are now so deep into the bucket that all that’s left are various forms of mental illness, starting with homosexuality and now into transsexuals and pedos, so that’s what they are promoting as the next new civil rights struggle.
They don’t care what they are promoting, they just want to win and they know that there is a large section of the population that can be easily won over by appealing to its virtue instincts.
I swim because I hate stretching. I am definitely no shark in the water. At 5’10” and about 195-205lbs depending on how much bread I have been eating lately, I look odd in the pool but I swim 450 yards 2-3 times a week. I try the butterfly but my big ass can’t manage that stroke but I do mix it up with the breaststroke, sidestroke and freestyle. I tried but I can’t perform the backstroke. Of course one of the worlds strongest men, Eddie Hall, looks at home in the water and he weighs over 300lbs. Hall used to be a swimmer of note before he took to the weights.
Running hills are safe as well because you can’t go fast enough to injure yourself. NEVER run downhill it will wreck your knees in the long run, either walk or jog down them backwards. You want a helluva workout? Trying jogging up a hill backwards. Try doing crab walks or bear crawls up hills as well. Do a search for various animal walks and crawl exercises, they are all on the internet. Best functional workouts a person can do for themselves and they cost nothing. I like lifting the iron, but you MUST cover every aspect of fitness like mobility which is the most important thing for a person to maintain as they age, endurance, flexibility as well as strength. And of course the lungs and heart are the most important. Hill training will take care of the legs, the heart and the lungs, believe me. Running in soft sand is also great, once I lived near some sand dunes with hills. Hardest damn thing I have ever done.
Countless breeds originated in Germany, the rottie, the dobie, the boxer, the schnauzer ( giant schnauzer) is an underrated guard dog, the dachshund, as well as the beloved German shepherd. I have 2 dachshunds, a dachshund mix who I rescued from one of my neighbors who always let the poor thing run loose, and an American bulldog which is a Scott/Johnson hybrid, one of the few dogs that originated in America. The American bulldog is the best dog that I have ever owned. I have had mutts, German shepherds, dachshunds, and a boxer, and the AB is my favorite. Great dog.
The swimming team at one university I attended was shut down because a sport where women and men train together doesn’t contribute to title IX “balance”. Guess what the alternative was? Cutting the men’s basketball team. But they were all blacks, so the predominantly white team had to go.
The Soviets always bought, licensed or stole Western technology (so did the Japanese in the early days of their car industry) but they also had plenty of native engineering talent. Some of the Soviet cars were more or less of mostly Russian design. Soviet auto manufacturers had to keep in mind the lack of repair facilities and the poor condition of Soviet roads so they tried for rugged and easy to repair.
They tended to base their styling on a pastiche of Western styling trends so a Soviet car might look vaguely like a Ford from the front and a Buick from the back and a Packard from the side. But since they were by definition copying from cars that were already on the market and given that they tended to keep cars in production more or less unchanged for decades, their cars always looked out of date. This was also true under the skin, where for example Soviet cars had things like kingpin front suspensions that had be phased out in the West decades earlier.
This is far from true. There is plenty of material on the internet regarding E. Bloc cars if you are interested. Their biggest problem was that due to overall poverty and lack of resources devoted to civilian production, their production numbers were very low in relation to the West. Some famous models, such as the Zil that Soviet leaders rode around in, were produced only in the hundreds. Waiting lists for cars stretched for years.
Pretty much already there with the Olympics:
Thank goodness the Nazis couldn’t destroy it in 1936.
Cheerleading competitions (as opposed to the usual pompom-waving and pole-dancing during football games) feature some incredible gymnastics. If I ever somehow found myself standing on someone’s shoulders I’d immediately faint right back to the ground.
BTW Ann Coulter on radio right now — “This [tranny order] is the end of women’s sports. The end.”
I knew that was a file photo, I was just pulling your leg. I just felt like going on a rant about Orange Theory, and cardio in general, and that picture triggered me. Sorry I had to use you as my foil. What’s my problem with Orange Theory? There’s one in the shopping center near my house, along with a Fit Pantry, Starbucks, Trader Joe’s, upscale nail salon, and various other foo-foo type establishments. It’s a liberal suburban soccer mom mecca. They get out of their de rigueur Lexus SUVs and flit about in their tight, oh-so-tight yoga pants. It’s enough to drive a man crazy with…class envy? Unrequited lust?
Sometimes just for fun I drive through that shopping center in my 4×4 pickup (Which is festooned with the obligatory Trump stickers, Confederate flag, and gun rack in the rear window) while belching clouds of thick, acrid diesel exhaust. (The truck, not me).
Re the weights vs. cardio thing, I’m not some jacked-up, roid-raging Gymbro, I’m just an old guy trying to maintain a little muscle mass and mobility as I ease into senior citizenhood. And I don’t think a Rascal would look good in the back of my redneck-themed pickup. I used to do a lot of cardio during my military career, but that was only so I could pass the annual Air Force fitness test, which emphasizes aerobic fitness and a small waistline over physical strength. (And we wonder why they call us the sissy service). The Army and Marines have a much more well-rounded fitness test, because they have to actually engage in strenuous physical activity. Dunno about the Navy, but my guess is that as long as they can bend over far enough, they’re OK. (Just kidding, my salty, seagoing brothers-in-arms! Besides, just like “prison rules”, “It ain’t gay if you’re underway!”).
Now that I’m retired, I can quit running and get back to slingin’ iron. The physical and mental benefits of lifting weights are incredible. More energy, better sleep, higher self-confidence, increased libido. The increased libidio comes in handy down at the Senior Center, the gals there really dig a fit 60-year-old guy wearing a tight tank top with big tufts of chest and armpit hair sticking out. And a pair of plaid Bermuda shorts and sandals-with-socks to complete the ensemble. But the main reason I lift weights is to piss off liberals. They hate physical strength, they think it correlates to conservatism, racism, sexism, and general all-around redneckery. (Actually they’re right, but don’t tell ’em that!).
Here’s another funny website I just discovered, with a couple of satirical articles on this subject.
(But like I just said, it’s not really satire):
I’ve got your website bookmarked, but I don’t know if I can be a “regular” reader, because I’m on the Carnivore Diet, which has zero fiber. The best cure for irregularity is a heaping teaspoon of Metamucil in an 8-ounce glass of liberal tears.
This circumcision schit all started in the western world with the English/British while the rest of Europe never bought into it, not at all. And Amerika being a colony of Britain, well, there ya go!
Not quite. Virtually no boys in Britain get circumcised. It’s an American thing that spread to Canada, and, I’m told, Australia.
You’re missing the point, there is no female pro hockey league, never has been, the NHL by contrast has been around almost a century, and yet, twice as many women as men end up playing hockey at the collegiate level, and no one watches female hockey at the collegiate level either. So what is driving this? there is no economic rationale, this is being driven by bureaucratic adherence to Title IX.
Regarding your men’s hockey to football comparison, football both at the high school and collegiate level is popular across the country, hockey is not, most American hockey players come from either in the Northeast or the Upper Midwest or Colorado, which not coincidentally is where most of all the top collegiate programs are located. So the number of HS hockey players available is a lot less than the number of HS football players, so more get a chance to play at the collegiate level. Does Alabama or Oklahoma or USC have a men’s hockey team? I doubt it, but I’m pretty sure they have football programs.
My evidence? Do women participate in golf more than men, more in track and field? more in soccer? more in basketball? Do I see girls spontaneously taking up these sports when not in school or not under adult supervision? I’ve never seen this. Even on the rare occasions I have seen girls playing outside of school they are invariably playing with guys, not with other women, whereas I see guys playing guys in these sports in non official capacity all the time. The female participation rate in practically all of these should be lower than the men’s rate, not higher, not the same or slightly less based on interest.
Cue: Whole Lotta Rosie by AC/DC for Rosie.
OK. I stopped after the English girl.
All the girls have long hair and none of them look the way bitter incel Kyle described.
You’ve gotten entangled in a never-ending argument here.
What do you think will be the practical effect of Biden’s EO?
Asking for a friend.
I’ve know many women who were interested in golf based on their own initiative. Soccer is by nature a team sport and little children of both sexes get chauffeured to sports by their parents (“soccer mom”) but nowadays little American girls seem to be as much or more spontaneously interested in soccer as little boys. Perhaps because little American boys dream of playing “real” football instead.
Why does he have to cut off his dick? Michelle 0bama didn’t cut off her dick. Actually, I don’t care if she did or she didn’t cut off her dick, Imma refer to her as a woman because I am polite.
An antidote against the ugliness and lunacy of the age
Hey, Mr. DYEL, that was one of the funniest reply comments I’ve ever gotten! Peak Stupidity could really use an irregular guy like you. I wasn’t in the military, but can appreciate those jokes too.
I have an older vehicle that uses more than its share of oil – what I like to do is ride down with the windows down as this one guy (he’s not anything like your yuppie crowd you mention) sits outside with a coffee and a mask on – “hey, I’ll give you a reason to keep that mask on”, then put it in neutral, rev it up, and watch that blue cloud.
Great stuff, and that npc site looks great at first glance also.
I hope to see you on here, or on PS, one.
You’ve gotten entangled in a never-ending argument here.
It’s almost as though she desires never-ending attention. Or something like it.
Dumb broads like you will shit all over other women while you enjoy the benefits they’ve gotten for you. You’re a pathetic little suck-up b!tch. You and Kylie both. You if the manosphere douchebags around here get their way:
Ha ha, I’m picturing that. God bless you, Joe.
Interesting. I can believe it.
I’ve been doing more reading. An EO as the name implies has authority over the entire Executive Branch. Think of that. According to Rod Dreher this would encompass any school that accepts federal funds. Dreher isn’t a lawyer though. If anyone can specify how an EO affects the law, I’d appreciate it.
stupidevil are White manosphere pigs?
They heap scorn and derision on the only other group of
of Americans not on board with their destruction.
I’ve been doing more reading.
An EO as the name implies has authority over the entire Executive Branch. Think of that.
Well, yeah. That’s been true longer than any of us have been alive. Did you just now discover this ? Didn’t you learn it back in high school government class?
If anyone can specify how an EO affects the law, I’d appreciate it.
Maybe you should do more reading and less asking?
@Alice in Wonderland, FYI:
This particular game of “change the subject” is typical of less imaginative trolls.
Some people insist that Rosie is actually a man acting like a typical woman for reasons. Some go further and declare “Rosie” is a Jewish incel.
Some people insist that Rosie is actually an AI experiment.
Some people insist that Rosie is spinster who is just whoring for attention.
Who knows? Who cares?
Whatever the case, “Rosie” is boring, contentious, uninformed and predictably tedious. Oh, and very fakely “religious” from time to time.
So be aware what it is that you are engaging.
I don’t really care about Biden’s order. I care about a future for White children, which will be nonexistent unless the manosphere douchebags are totally discredited and run out of the White advocacy media and organizations. They need to go.
What other group’s racial advocates relentlessly attack their own women? None.
Not quite. Virtually no boys in Britain get circumcised. It’s an American thing that spread to Canada, and, I’m told, Australia.
That is correct – today. However, the rate of boycutting was fairly high in England prior to the surgery being de-insured by the National Health Service. And then the rate fell to almost-nothing.
However, I was told by a man in England that the upper classes and aristocrats still do this to their hapless male offspring.
Anyway, thanks for responding without yelling at me. What is it about forums, where people feel compelled to attack other commenters instead of just saying, “I disagree with you” or “You are wrong and here is why I say you are.”
Or rather, do non-lesbian women watch women’s sports?
In Australia women’s cricket seems to be entirely a lesbian thing.
“Our new president is an idiot who is already doing idiotic things like this.”
No, “Biden” is not “doing” anything as an agent in the usual sense. Biden’s mind is not strong enough to handle independent thought. Rather, he is the mouthpiece for a team. We could speculate about who is on that team, or whether it has a fixed roster, but presumably the team answers ultimately to a board of directors, with Obama as the puppet-master.
Forcing women’s sports to accept MtFs is not “dumb” for anyone on the Left who knows which way the wind is blowing, and which way the arc of history is bending. For them, this policy is just a “no-brainer,” not even worth debating.
As I said, there’s a minority of True Believers.
But for the elites in general all these Social Justice causes are just embraced because they’re useful to the elites and they distract attention away from the power and wealth of the elites.
The elites are not monolithic. Some are True Believers. Some are cynics who just see these causes as useful.
The members of the elites are like most people. They’re motivated mostly by personal advantage. They’ll support any cause if there’s a personal benefit for them in doing so. If there’s no personal benefit they will support these crazy causes only as long as they feel it is in their interests to do so.
Thanks. But in the real world, this EO will have way more effect than manosphere douchebags.
The majority of white suburban moms voted for Trump in 2020; he increased his voter share in all groups except white men.
You have white men to thank for Biden.
To be fair, Trump should be blamed for f’ing up, but since we’re talking about the electorate here…
Well done, Rosie.
There’s a huge political advantage in kicking the daylights out of conservative Christians. Conservative Christians are Republican voters.
There’s a huge political advantage in getting issues like the debt, unemployment, trade, economic conditions for the working class, the slow decline of the lower middle class and the power of the Tech Giants off the front pages.
You beat me to it. I was going to say that, yeah, a Lada is a Fiat.
But there is something about the Trabant that appeals to me. I had the opportunity to buy one for \$75 when I visited East Berlin in 1990 and I regret not doing so. Their main problem is that you could not do engine braking downhill, because the fuel-oil mixture would be too lean and would seize the motor.
I am more than just a little bit of a two stroke enthusiast: I still ride my 1977 Yamaha RD400D and I love beating big bore bikes like Ducatis and Suzuki GSXRs between stoplights on PCH on Sunday to this very day.
While the East Germans may not have built luxury cars, they certainly built luxury watches, just like they did before the war.
For example, Glashuette:
The East Germans made some very fine watches during the cold war, but none of them wound up in East German hands.
So you don’t like half-breeds? She’s got classic NA/White features. She’s pretty.
First of all, the Russians were the one who conquered Berlin and they did plenty of damage too.
2nd, Havana looks like this too, without any bombing. In a Communist country, since no one owns anything, there’s no incentive to take care of building stock or build anything new.
Soviet propaganda did make a big deal out of the firebombing of Dresden, though Stalin had done things that were a thousand times worse.
Title IX is, in fact, the law to which you object. Easy way to tell? It will be cited as authority for the legal obligations that command the outcomes you dislike.
Paperback Writer, Ben Tillman,
I think that the confusion here may originate in the fact that such rulemaking and enforcement activities as you are discussing fall under the sphere of Administrative Law, which is distinct from Statutory Law. It is not the same, not at all, and is the root of much mischief from the left, perhaps as much as judicial “legislation from the bench”, or even more. Agencies formulate their own rules upon the basis of a legislative law and/or an executive order, and their enforcement can be quite forcefully pursued. I suspect that, to avoid that eventuality, institutions subject to these regulations often “go along to get along”, regardless of the fairness of these rules, and like all bullies, once they have their victims backing up, they like to keep them backing up. Supposedly, there are appeals possible to the judicial system, but given the extent of leftist influence in the judiciary, good luck with that if the rules’ intent seems to comport with general leftist doctrines and beliefs.
See here for a brief explanation, and historical overview, particularly in the section on administrative law in common law countries. There is also an article restricted to the US for which a hot link is supplied.
My former boss at the university law library at which I was then employed expressed an interest in improving the online availability of administrative law materials through scanning from print sources, as they were poorly represented online as opposed to statutory law. But, of course, this deficiency provided an opportunity for specialist law services to work a revenue stream unserviceable through other generalist law firms; they instead kept a keen eye on publications such as the Federal Register and the Code of Federal Regulations to stay abreast of such developments in rulemaking by agencies.
EO’s purport to express The President’s administrative preferences and interpretation over a policy established by Congress usually through statute.
To the extent that the Soviets did not cart off their factories to Russia the E. Germans had some left over precision equipment industries that they seized from their prewar owners – watches, cameras, lenses, adding machines, etc. Some of this stuff was of export quality although as the decades went on they tended to fall further and further behind the West. For example, their watch industry missed the quartz revolution. Later on this weakness became a strength in some areas as mechanical watches became fashionable again. Their mechanical adding machine industry did not fare as well.
The factory that made the Trabant had been an Audi factory before the war (and after the war they continued making the pre-war models for a while, though the 1939 design was pretty long in the tooth by 1955). The prewar model DKW F8 was also 2 stroke FWD – by 1939 European car standards this was not out of the ordinary. By the time the Trabant came out (1955) 2 stroke, 2 cylinder cars were already fading in Europe (they had not been a thing in America since before the Model T days) and by 1990 they were wildly obsolete (and highly polluting).
The Trabant had a body made of cotton waste and phenol resin (bakelite) because the E. Germans didn’t have a lot of steel production and even less available for civilian use. Because the Russians had carted off most of their steel mills to Russia as “war reparations”.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg pointed out that everybody thinks that Supreme Court is constantly debating giant Constitutional questions, but in reality much of the Supreme Court’s workload involves administrative law cases that nobody cares about unless they are being paid \$500 per hour to care about.
Which is why patriots, nationalists, and even conservatives should just ignore the transgender issue.
The Jews bear more responsibility for contemporary infant mutilation practices than Kellogg does.
“ I think that the confusion here may originate in the fact that such rulemaking and enforcement activities as you are discussing fall under the sphere of Administrative Law, which is distinct from Statutory Law.”
Yes and no. All administrative law purports to be an interpretation of an statute. When you challenge an administrative rule either before an Administrative Law Judge or in front of a state or federal court you are simply asking the decision maker to rule that an administrative rule or order conflicts with a statute or operates outside the scope of the statute.
A good summary of the billionaires behind the “gender identity industry” and what their money buys is found in:
These are 2 of about 16 articles on transgenderism, technology, the “gender identity industry,” and even the connections between transgenderism and “transhumanism” that can be found at:
A statute is a law. Administrative rules are also laws. Administrative guidelines are also laws. Judicial cases can involve binding legal opinions.
You are confusing law, which roughly means some directive that can be enforced in front of a tribunal, with its most well known variant, statutes which are created by legislative bodies and can usually only be repealed by legislative bodies.
Well, Jack, what if you are one of those who suffers an anaphylactic reaction when you are injecting yourself with one of those vaccines, and you are all alone, and there is no help to be had within the short timeframe, and at the intensity level, such as epinephrin or intubation, required to keep you alive? I guess you would be just shit out of luck, eh?
I suspect that your relative who now takes a self-administered dose of Humira safely didn’t self-administer their first, or perhaps even their first few doses, away from the supervision of a doctor or nurse, who would be there to assure the correct administration, or more importantly, the safety of your relative taking that drug.
I took a series of allergy shots some time ago, and even though I was issued an epipen for use away from the office at need, it was a hard and fast rule that I was not allowed to leave the doctor’s office after a shot for 15 minutes, and this continued after every shot, a weekly or twice weekly event, with no exception.
These vaccine shots are a sequence of no more than two shots. Why the mania that somebody has to administer shots to themselves away from quick medical intervention when needed? How about instead facilitating medically-supervised injections even for those who cannot themselves travel to an injection site, for whatever reason? I get that you are totally het up about everybody getting their injection(s), but given that there have been medical emergencies associated with them, how about the society prioritizing safety? There are such things as travelling nurses after all, and even paramedical personnel might be able to perform this task (they are trained to give injections and to react to emergencies), and who better for this?
I was a college swimmer. In the early 80’s we had a dual meet with the Air Force Academy at there pool. Early in the meet the AFA announcer started to make teasing announcements about a very special exhibition team which was going to swim the last event, the 400 yard freestyle relay. So we’re all waiting to see what this was, when the time comes we hear the playing of the EAST German national anthem, here comes four male cadets wearing woman’s suits in East German colors. It was hilarious. It was a play on the since confirmed fact, the East German women’s team used steroids. There was much outcry at the time by the USA’s national swim team as cheating. In fact this began the need for drug testing athletes. Now 40 years later we are suppose to embrace it
Why, yes, sort of like in the military, or in the police or fire departments.
In a just world, only the looney tunes who delude themselves into thinking that they are capable of handling the physical demands of these careers would be the ones who pay the price for their delusions. But that’s not how it works; your fellow soldiers, policemen, or firemen (eww, he said “men”) may be hurt or injured because of this, or the people you are commissioned to protect are. This has a far higher chance of happening if the standards have been lowered across the board to accomodate some ideological goal.
Sort of the opposite to the possible effect if transgendered or transitioning men start to dominate in women’s athletics. Not good at all.
Polistra, of that there is no doubt!
With the Lada as a Fiat in disguise it seems to be the same situation as with the Ural and Dniepr motorcycles, believed by some to be Russian or Ukrainian motorcycles, yet are in reality BMWs, built since the late 1930s in the SU in licence.
I didn’t know about the GDR watches. I wish I had such a mechanical watch as well. It is deeply satisfying to own such an intricate little machine solely driven by a spring and which one has to tend to by winding it regularly.
I haven’t seen a Trabi for quite some time. They are becoming rare. Perhaps it is not too late for you to find one, however. Just as one sees on occasion VW Bugs, Fiat 500s, Citroen 1600s or 2 CVs, they will be around for a while.
I also remember very well my first motorcycle, a Yamaha 125 ccm 2-stroke 2-cylinder engine. It had problems with overheating. I lived in a rather hilly town at that time. When that happened, I just had to take a break for a few minutes and on it went as though nothing had ever happened. The smoke trail when taking off with a cold motor was sometimes spectacular. Now that you mentioned your enthusiasm for two-stroke engines, I realise that I haven’t seen one for quite a while. Motor saws seem to be their current remaining use.
Thank you for your links. I will check them out.
I didn’t know about authentic (i.e., homegrown) Soviet or Russian cars. Thank you for pointing this out to me. I looked up the Zil and the pictures I found look a lot like the American Street Cruisers of the 50s and 60s.
Cars from different countries have, no matter who the manufacturer is, a typical look. Hence a French or German, English, Italian, Swedish or Japanese, or an American car have a distinct national look about them and one can see immediately what concept of proportion, size, elegance and representation of machine purpose and strength was guiding the design pen. One immediately tell where the car is coming from. That’s at least the case for the older designs. Yet with the Zil, I think I would have guessed wrong.
Yes, that’s what I said; if the judge, likely a leftist judge wants to see a leftist policy initiative “codified” as a “law”, a “law” essentially written and enacted by some unelected, and therefore unaccountable bureaucrat, or cabal of bureaucrats, why of course he will rule it as being within the scope of the statute. This possesses as much appeal to that leftist judge as stealing an election does by denying standing to a plaintiff; and as the kicker, he gets to “legislate from the bench” by proxy through the pretense that, gosh, “any reasonable man would see it this way”. Very, very passive aggressive; what, me, validate a policy outcome I secretly favor because I want to see it imposed? Au contraire, I, am acting like Solomon, strictly serving the interest of justice. What a crock.
No one is attacking women. We don’t see the benefit of promoting a tiny minority of women to engage in a useless gender-segregated activity.
It’s funny you should mention the Jews and circumcision. I jokingly said that Kam had to vet all of Biden’s republican guard to see if they were circumcised or not . Those that weren’t, could not be trusted to guard “The Great Pretender” at his ceremony.
You have been rotting around here long enough. Best luck in the new year. The best non racist place is Africa so let me know when you move there.

You might like the above video. The Trabant had a 26 horsepower engine with mx speed of 55 on the flats.
I have nothing against white women. I have something against shrill termagants like you.
It’s a lot of money. Maybe not as much as the men’s competition, but still a lot of money. Totally worth it.
Thanks for the links, thought-provoking stuff. I do agree that it was when ‘T’ was added to ‘LGB’ that things began to go crazy.
Again and again we see that free market economics is merely a religion, and a dogmatic one blind to evidence.
Most peculiar, Mama.
“It’s a lot of money. Maybe not as much as the men’s competition, but still a lot of money.”
Don’t know about the US, but Wimbledon pays equal prize money, more than £2 million of it. So the same money for 40% less work in a three/five-setter or 33% less in a two/three set win.
It would be interesting. I think the player would have to establish a convincing “legend” first, pretty sure say that if Jamie Murray announced tomorrow he was a woman and entered the ladies singles he’d be booed unmercifully – and the authorities, both All-England and legal, would do nothing. On the other hand, he’d almost certainly win it if he could keep his composure.
But if some promising junior of 15 or 15 announced it, stayed in character, and started hammering girls at junior tournaments while training and practicing against males, that would give Wimbledon more of a headache, and anyone booing would probably be thrown out and prosecuted.
Before the ’60s, the Soviets tried to copy American car styling (and even licensed American technology) but from the ’60s onward they were more influenced by Italian and French design and tended to make their deals with European companies rather than the US due to Cold War embargoes. But since in all cases their styling was derivative there was not a lot of originality. If there was a Soviet “look” it was that the cars looked vaguely (or in some cases exactly) like other nation’s cars and that the bits and pieces of copied design did not always come together harmoniously (either aesthetically or in the sense of actually fitting together).
Soviet leaders (and consumers) always had a feeling that foreign was better so that even where domestic design talent existed and probably would have sufficed they preferred to make deals to license foreign designs instead. The foreign designs often had to be modified extensively to suit Soviet conditions and material availability. But the Zils were cars for the top leadership and it would not have done to have Soviet leaders riding around in a foreign designed car.
2 strokes have the advantage of simplicity – a 2 stroke engine has only a handful of moving parts vs. a 4 stroke which needs all sorts of valves and cams and springs and so on. Their main disadvantage in the modern environment is that they are highly polluting given that they burn the oil that must be mixed with the fuel. This is pretty much a deal breaker.
Aside from chainsaws and lawn edgers and such, two stroke engines still exist as the giant diesels that power ships. I mean really big – like the size of a house big. I suppose that pollution is less of an issue at sea.
“Law” is a generic term, then.
Further to what the previous commenter said, EO’s usually follow statutes but this EO followed a Supreme Court decision, not statute.
I’d love to see Congress address this. I’d like to see an Amendment to the Constitution telling us that biology is real. Instead of impeaching a guy who is no longer president they might do something useful. But I beclown myself.
Quercetin carries the Zinc into cells same as hydroxychloroquine. But maybe 30%-40% as effectively/ Better than nothing.
All my chain saws and edgers are electric where I pull out the extension cord. I hate dealing with gasoline engines except in automobiles and lawnmowers. I will never ever buy a plug in Bolt or other EV. EVs are huge in China because they have coal to burn to power them but not much petroleum to make into gasoline. They must import this, unlike us.
Curse on the Chinese is all their coal is in Western China. While their mass economic activity that needs massive electric feeds is in the East by the coast. And their west to east railways are not good. It was cheaper to pay to import Australian coal.
How do you know she’s not a Title IX female boxer after a tough fight?
You’d be surprised. Spend a little time looking at the election results of 1920 (Spanish flu) and 1932 (Great Depression). Trump did pretty well, considering what could have been. Polling projections of a double digit popular vote margin and a several hundred vote electoral vote margin for Biden are well-grounded in 2020’s historical analogues. And yet they failed to materialize. The media thinks Trump is a screw-up for simply breathing, but he actually pulled off a significant feat by not getting steamrolled.
What does this have to do with Dudes in chix locker rooms?
Grasshopper, I’m glad your wife will not have to apologize for the vocabulary-word-a-day desk paperweight she got you for Christmas.
Suzuki Water Buffalo club, STAND UP!
I agree and I shocked a Leftie law professor once at a conference when I read from an dissent in an early administrative law case. The dissent anticipated your comments and I asked the professor whether he could find anything wrong with the prediction given the course of admin law since the New Deal. He couldn’t but also acted as if there was no other option good or bad.
My particular bugbear are administrative decisions that create policy outcomes much more radical or significant than the underlying legislation. Title IX is a good example. Equality in spending is far less radical than changing the definition of the sexes.
Rosie, this runs the risk of entering “microaggression against a protected minority group” territory; even though you are part of that group. It’s kinda like “Duh man holdin’ the (whyte) man down.
We don’t do that around these parts. We respect all creeds, races, genders and opinions, this is a safe space and if you cannot learn to respect this you will be asked to leave.
First they came for the college girl athletes…
Nordic crime rates are way lower. The murder rate per capita in Sweden, for instance, is 1.1 per 100,000, 1/5 of the US.
The US murder rate per capita peaked at 9.8 per 100,000 in 1991.
It was about 5.0 per 100,000 in 2019. 2020 will probably be in the 7.0 per 100,000 range, if big city increases in the ~40% (and up) range are anything to go by, presumably offset by relative stability in areas with negligible black populations. 2.8 per 100,000 to go before we can say what was old is new again.
You’re welcome, Rosie.
You really know how to make allies, I gotta say.
I wrote “yet” – you missed that. Women will have to learn a few facts before guys will step in and sort things out.
i guarantee where you live is extremely gay

Dude, you’re 50 or 60 or 80+ years too late. “Congress may enforce” has been a root password to power since the 1930’s; the authority of Congress to delegate its authority to commissions and bureaus has been settled law since 1938 or so. That’s why the 1990’s expansion of Title IX happened, because it could and man-haters like Rosie / Alden got into positions of power, so they decided to attack men’s intercollegiate sports…and that’s why this EO is so richly ironic, because it doesn’t overturn Title IX at all. No! It expands it!
All this EO does is revise and expand liberty, by expanding and revising the definition of the word “woman”. I stand by my first comment: this turns Title IX around so that it chews on itself. Imagine if Rachel Dolezal had actually succeeded in passing & even got a nice Affirmative Action sinecure with some foundation. That’s what this EO reduces to, and why it so enrages the man-hating feminists.
That’s whey I Lol!
And any woman that does anything that doesn’t conform to your narrow-minded concept of femininit, to wit:
1. Sticking up for self and other woman, and
2. Playing sports.
Anyone care to add anything to the list.
Anyway, I’m fine with you hating me. If I have to be a foil to soak up all that hate and vitriol for now, so be it. In time, though, you will have to go. White people can’t let your sort hold White well-being hostage in your basement ghetto of irrelevancy.
Well, nitwit, it would be a useless word to you, seeing as you think all women are actually men. Must get lonely there on planet Flat Earth.
I don’t hate you. I find you tiresome and have simply said so. Most people hereabouts seem to hold a similar opinion; maybe it has something to do with you.
Hey that wasn’t actually bad, Bro. An improvement at least, I’d say 6/10. You’re usually kinda dopey and humorless.
“ the authority of Congress to delegate its authority to commissions and bureaus has been settled law since 1938 or so”
Yes, but Scalia started noticing and there has been commentary, not much case law yet, about pulling it back. Again, the variant I most dislike is that described, where a decision not only expands the policy direction of the statute but does so in a way that incorporates an new and novel legal theory of law, for instance the theory that men are women. This latter situation is thankfully rare but worrisome.
Scalia started noticing
Then he woke up dead one day with a pillow on his face. He doesn’t notice much anymore. Probably shouldn’t count on him for USSC court opinions. Justice Roberts is still around, though.
and there has been commentary, not much case law yet, about pulling it back.
“There’s been talk but no action, so something gonna habben real soon now. ”

Ok, you dislike something and worry about something. That’s your point? That’s it? As if it matters? Worrying and disliking is your action plan?
That point plus three bucks gets you a cup of coffee.
Got anything else?
F**k off, you demented moron.
That humorless enough for you?
Australian women’s cricket is pretty mixed in sexual preference . I’d say the straight sheilas would have the numbers
The most lezzo sports in Australia are soccer and basketball . What do these two sports have in common ? they are both dominated by the good old USA who set the game’s culture
The least lezzo women’s sports are the old traditional Aussie women’s sports that the girls played when I was a youngster – hockey ( or field hockey to North Americans ) and netball . Interesting that in both these sports the girls ( if you’ll pardon the expression ) play in skirts ie girls who want to be girls
Vonnegut was not Soviet, although he must have been sorely tempted a time or two.
If you don’t understand why Dresden was so bad you could have a bright future in Republican politics.
I think that girls basketball in many American states up into the 1970s had rules more like Australian netball. Then they changed the rules to be the same as boys basketball and eventually lesbians took over the game.
