Are you sure that some of these folks don't consider her this because of the sex change?
Do they consider the commision and the people involved in the fight (ref/promoter..) POS's b/c they let this happen?
Well, her sex change is out in the open now, if people accept fights with her, I'm fine with that.
The simple truth is you probably can't but you are so concerned with being one of those people who accept any and everything that you think it makes you look like a better person.
Of course He at the time She now didn't come out and say this. Do you people who run scams or try to get a leg up or do fucked up shit just come out and say it? Do you think our government here in the states comes out and says the real reason for the shut down? No. Do you think large company CEO's tell you there real motives? No. Read the articles, do the research and form your opinion. Its what I did here.
Ok so in a quick search it now says she didn't do MMA first. Still I know I read that on here before. Still does not change my opinion. She was a full grown man before deciding to change. I am sorry but no man should ever hit a woman even if that "man" becomes a woman. She was at or over age 30 when she changed her gender and sex. And then decides to compete in a sport against women?? Sorry but that's taking PC too far. I need some fucked up commission who most of us on here can't get shit right to begin with to tell me what is right and what is wrong.

So, would you contend that someone would have sex change surgery to simply stand a better chance of winning fights in MMA?
I can honestly tell you that I find that to be the least plausible option in this discussion.

WHAT DOES FALLON FOX SAY!? i lose lose lose lose lose la lo la lose la lose
All manner of men came to work for the News: everything from wild young Turks who wanted to rip the world in half and start all over again -- to tired, beer-bellied old hacks who wanted nothing more than to live out their days in peace before a bunch of lunatics ripped the world in half.

I don't know if she should or should not be allowed to fight women, that's not my job to decide, and I'm not educated enough in the physical reality of what it means for her body to be transgendered. That should be up to the AC's who license fighters. They're letting her fight so I say game on.
A lot of people are absolutely upset because she is transgendered. They don't see her as a woman who wants to compete in mma, but very much a man who wants to "beat" women. I disagree with that assessment.
If Fallon Fox got a sex change to be more competitive at MMA then I would be so inclined to call her a huge pile of dookie. I don't see how being successful in WMMA would counteract all the emotional, physical and social obstacles one must overcome with sexual reassignment surgery. Plus, if you're going to go on record and accuse someone of such things, the burden of proof is on you.
I also disagree with your simplistic version of events which seems to be "Man gets sex change then competes in WMMA". It's possible that Fallon Fox's sexual reassignment took several years to become complete. I haven't read up on her situation specifically, but through research on the following website, http://www.equalityhumanrights.com/a...nment-process/, it could take several years to become complete. It's not like this hulking man chopped his dong off and started beating up weaker disadvantaged woman MMA fighters. Fallon showed up to her fights on weight and without any obvious physical advantages.
You have every right to hate domestic violence against women, and have every right to have an opinion regarding transsexuals and their competing in MMA, but I think you can do a better job of conveying your point of view without coming across so brash.
You have to know what you don't know.
I could really care less how people on here take my post as in my opinion most of the people on this board are too scared of offending others. I have long believed as a society that we have gone too far in the PC direction.
The bottom line is while I do not get the whole transgender thing I could also care less about it. What a person wants to do is there business and has never effected me. Have I cracked jokes about it before. Yes. Do I care if it offends people. No. But again I think people are too sensitive. Have I trashed her for changing from a man to a woman? No. Again its his / her business (and no thats not a back handed slap cuz she was a he when he made the choice)
My issue is her fighting. I do not think she has the right and I do not think the commission should let her. I was all for the commission when they suspended her license and I do not think they should have reinstated it. I am sorry, but choices people make effect what they can do in the future. She was 30 before she became a she. She was a full grown man. If she wants to do anything else in the world fine, but she should not be allowed to compete against women in a combat sport. If you want to think Im a bigot or simple minded thats your choice. Chances are we will not agree on many things but I doubt I really care about your opinion anymore than you care about mine.
