  1. It’s bad enough that a biological male by the name of Boyd Burton (Fallon Fox) inflicted this much damage on a black lesbian, now males expect to be in women’s roller derby.

    Tamikka Brents received a fractured orbital bone, and seven stables to the scalp, all within 3 minutes of the first round. This is what can happen when males compete in inherently dangerous sports with females.

    Males should never fight women, and they do not belong in women’s roller derby. How much more female blood do trans* activists want to see?

    As to the National LGBTQ Task Force, it’s a transgender/men’s rights organization. According to the “Task Force”, women don’t even have the right to do as they please on their own private property.

  2. I want to follow up on biological males competing against females in rough contact “sports” (MMA, roller derby, etc.) that have a reputation for being unruly and potentially dangerous. Despite what trans* activists say, there is still debate as to whether or not males still have an athletic advantage even after they “transition”.

    This is what a board certified orthopedic surgeon says about Boyd Burton (Fallon Fox). These statements could also be applied to any sport not just MMA.

    “The problem with the transgender issue, specifically male to female, is that there is not enough scientific information out there to say if it’s safe enough to allow this to go on. If you don’t know if it’s safe, we have to err on the side of safety, which says until we get more information, we cannot go forward with this.

    One of the things that’s very interesting, is everyone says, ‘Well there’s been a few studies that say after two years this, that and the other…’ That’s not true. There’s no studies for this. I’ve done the literature search. Then they come back with, ‘The IOC knows.’ The IOC knows what? The IOC caved to political and social pressure. The IOC didn’t say, ‘Because of firm scientific and medical evidence, that if you’ve had this SRS and you’ve taken hormones for two years, that’s the magic number that all this is going to become safe.’ That’s not true at all.

    There is no firm scientific basis to support that conclusion. They made an arbitrary determination in the face of social pressure. OK, I understand that, too. Who wanted to fight the fight? The IOC didn’t want to, so they said. ‘If you get the surgery and take the hormones for two years, that’s good enough for us.’ That doesn’t mean it was made on a sound medical basis, because the sound medical basis doesn’t exist. Those studies have not been done.

    The surgeons that spoke towards bone density decreasing and so on and so forth – that doesn’t say the person doesn’t still have superior physiological abilities. The real question is, what was the sex at time of puberty? As we all know, boys and girls aren’t that much different until they go through puberty.

    Gender reassignment happens after puberty. One of the things that happens during puberty, is that boys grow 15-20 cm taller than girls. The average height of men is greater than the average height of women. In addition to bone density, there is also the issue of longer bones in men. Longer bones lead to some mechanical advantages that shorter bones don’t have.

    The argument is that “They’ve become a woman because they’ve had the surgery and taken the hormones.’ The hormones will certainly make your phenotype. The different hormone therapies are very good at changing that, but they don’t change those things that happen to you during puberty. The length of your bones don’t change. The mean muscle surface area doesn’t change a great deal.

    When people say, ‘That person has turned into a woman’, I’m fine with that, but where is the hard scientific data that says their athletic performance capacity has now changed to that of a woman? That scientific research has not been done.

    People might think I’m against transgender people. I’m not against anybody. That’s a social issue. What I’m saying is that we don’t know enough, and if you don’t have that knowledge, if you don’t have that scientific information, you have to err on the side of safety. Until we know for sure, I can’t support it. We simply don’t know what the safety issues are.”

    Do the other women’s roller derby teams know that Whalen is a biological male? They should have a right to know.
