Gender has nothing to do with sexual organs in the same way that feet have nothing to do with walking. People have gotten too "smart" for their own good, and they twist simple and obvious facts into these nonsensical and abstract theories. Way too much is given in society so that people can pat themselves on the back for being enlightened and politically correct. I don't really enjoy posting about MMA here anymore, and the stuff I do feel compelled to post about only pisses me off. I've never wanted to do a big farewell thing, and then start posting again the next day, so I think I'm done here. I'll be in my cave where us neanderthals think that it's wrong for a dude with a mutilated Dick to play pretend while hitting women. You guys have fun patting each other on the back for being so damn open minded.
I have friends who are transgendered. I have a kid who used to work for me who is going through the preliminary stages of the surgical process. I don't have a problem with any of that.
I do not feel that Fox should be licensed to fight women, as I believe she made the change after puberty. I'd read where Olympic guidelines have no concern with trans athletes, provided they medically delayed puberty and made adjustment afterwards.
That being said, I don't bear any real animosity towards Fox. The loss isn't really that big of a deal for me.
I get it's a controversial topic. I'm not interested in forcing anyone to come to my personal perspective. But I feel obligated to state it clearly when I have one.
I'm not banning anyone for the petty bullshit that's already been said. It's certainly no worse than you'd find in a thread about Tito, or brock, or Vitor, for that matter.
But I am issuing a blanket warning here--not to you 'Jedi, but to the rest of the board--if you can't say anything that brings the board to a better, more informed place, if you can't state your opinion clearly and/or respectfully, don't bother posting. Nobody gives a shit if you hate transexuals, or if you hate any other underrepresented, for that matter. There are other boards on the internet for that shit.
Keep it about fighting or get the fuck out.
I personally, don't have a problem with Fox fighting women. If she went through the proper protocols for her procedure, which I'm led to believe she did, and she's on weight and her opponents are aware, then it's not a big deal for me. At that point they are both willing, participating, adults who can make big girl decisions as to who they want to fight for money.
Talking Vitor the fighter and how he's overhyped, never acting him as a person is comparable to acting Fallon Fox as a person?
Thats what we like to call a STRETCH.
BUT HEY, keep being simple minded bigots.
