  1. Same old crap different day. Distractions from the disgusting abuse and failures of the Republican Party. Appealing to the worst of their bases instincts and prejudices. When is this going to be stopped?

    1. @Vicki Roberts “but hatred is there driving Force.” Ok, but what generates this hatred? Then, what ideology does the hatred come from if not from the texts of the Bible?

    2. @Seven of Nine just as an added point. This is exactly how cults like trumpism get started. The disenfranchised glom onto something that they think understands them and their plight. One of the biggest cons ever perpetrated on the American people was that Donald Trump was one of them. He promised them that he would hate the same people they hate, that he would make them pay for taking away their rightful place in society. The ironic part is that inclusion, or lack thereof, is exactly what drives them to want to exclude others. The religious right is definitely a part of this but I think by overstating their effect you minimize the enormity of the problem.

    3. @Vicki Roberts “by overstating” It would be irrational of me to deny the possibility that I overstate it. But the way I perceive things at the moment, I cannot feel an overvaluation. I must add that I deal with religious terror worldwide and my view is not U.S.-specific but global. Of course, this includes the fact that there are many regions in the world against which the religious terror within the USA seems relatively harmless. Over the past decades, I have observed in many countries how quickly and how well religious fanaticism can be instrumentalized in favor of an oppressive state. I see the danger of such a development in the USA right now.

  2. I support for equal rights. I need to learn more about these issues. It’s something I want to be better educated. I learned from this video. I will research more to educate myself.

  3. Not sure why some Americans have to keep finding ‘problems’ that the rest of us don’t shriek about. Some people are Trans, and that’s fine – get over it. The way these Republicans – and they seem to always be Republicans, forever trying to stay on the wrong side of History – go on, you’d swear there were legions of Trans athletes out there trying to cheat through sport, when young trans people will only be a minority of all trans citizens, and of those, only some will be interested in sport, as with their non-trans peers. If only they put half as much energy into, oh, I don’t know – tackling white Supremacists, neonazis, QAnon nuts, anti-vaxxers, anti-maskers, and all the other awful people we now see running around by the tens of Millions over there – true Deplorables – perhaps, just perhaps, your country wouldn’t be as broken, divided, sick and pitied. Instead: Trans mania. Get over it.

    1. “If only they put half as much energy into, oh, I don’t know – tackling white Supremacists, neonazis, QAnon nuts, anti-vaxxers, anti-maskers”
      What you describe here is the GQP! I understand that you mean well, but asking these fascists to fight themselves is completely missing the reality.

    2. @R. G. Biv Maybe. But I think a little education and at least the most rudimentary human feelings would also be helpful. But both are not to be found in GQP circles.

    1. @Seven of Nine OH no you did not go there SUN worshipers Saturday is the Sabbath all the SUN worshiper have broken Gods law Number 4 God said Remember and keep the sabbath Holy the Church is a big failure Run for God knows your hateful heart and he Loves us Transgenders

    2. @Roxanne Joganik There is no god. You support an ideology that hates you. Read about: “Stockholm Syndrom”. It may help you to see the mechanism.

  4. I actually feel sorry for the people who just can’t understand that transpeople are still people and that your religious beliefs aren’t to be forced on everyone else.

    1. I feel sorry for those who don’t realize men have every advantage in physical sports. End of story.

  5. well, as soon as people agree that the state can go beyond its domain in the regulation of public spaces to regulate private spaces, it creates the ability for the state to say who can and can’t be on your poker team. there’s no such thing as partial totalitarianism.

  6. petty issues like what words people use, how they dress or dance or what sports they play seem large to small minds.

  7. Why do they mutilate their body, that’s what I don’t understand? I’m all for equality and everything but when you mutilate a fully functional organ from your body, it makes me think there is something wrong mentally speaking

  8. Multiple studies have shown estrogen only “modestly” reduces strength (around 5-10%) after a year on it. Grip strength is still around 17-42% higher in transwomen than women. Bone density, lung capacity, hip width also play a huge factor of course which are all MUCH greater in transwomen naturally. This is absolute science denial at its finest. Pushing a insidious cultish ideology based on imagination alone, telling people to ignore the evidence of their eyes and ears or be called a ‘bigot’
    Shame on any person who defends this absolute insidious scandal on children’s bodies, women’s rights and on academics, doctors and scientists who are threatened with losing their jobs if they speak out. This is the medical evil of this century.
