If you’re a man and you use your physical advantage to beat down a woman, you will be [rightfully] criticized and ostracized. That is of course, unless you call yourself transgender, then you become the “bravest athlete in history” by OutSports magazine:
In 2013, when Fallon Fox came out publicly as trans in professional mixed martial arts, she was the target of a torrent of hatred I have literally never seen targeting an LGBTQ athlete. While certainly some writers took thoughtful approaches to understanding this emerging dynamic of trans athletes in women’s sports, still many more, like Joe Rogan, were vicious for the sake of being vicious.
Yet Fox stood strong and continued to push for, and earn, her right to compete. Except for one fateful match, she also won every time she stepped into the professional ring.
When I wrote my book, Fair Play: How LGBT Athletes Are Claiming Their Rightful Place In Sports, the final chapter was titled, “Fallon Fox Is The Bravest Athlete In History.”
That remains true for me now, four years later.
Uh, that is insane. And it’s being called out by many on the right, who still make sense, while being applauded by morons on the left, who have lost their reason altogether.
No one is more persuasive on this than Joe Rogan, who was a national taekwondo champion, and now one of the most successful podcasters in history:
We are hurtling faster and faster into a maelstrom of madness.
