I have done a great deal of research on hate crimes in America, and the tragically underreported fact is that an enormous number of such incidents reported over the past decades turn out to have been hoaxes.

Tim Pool has been a tear lately.

This video talks about Matt Yglesias (Vox) congratulating the progressive media on misleading people (mostly Democrats, obviously) about their taxes.

Section 6 would presumably modify the law to make it illegal to bar anyone identifying as a female to play female sports in a public school. They literally had a radical feminist there to claim that if they pass this bill, "women's rights will be abolished, and every right that women fought for will cease to exist." LOL

Which college is going to be first? :D

I've wondered what effect the transgender craze will have on Olympic women's competition. If a (former) man could get classified as a women, he'd have a huge advantage in most sports, everything from skiing to running to figure skating. I'd be surprised if no one's figured that out yet. I can't wait to see what happens the first time a transgender wins a gold medal in a women's competition.

Hopefully, the one good thing this tranny movement brings about is bringing down the massive sports-industrial complex. It'll be worth it if it does.

Then individuals can be free to choose what type of environment they want to compete, in a much more decentralized and non-state-dependent models that hopefully are no longer utter leeches on our collective attention.

That’s a great question, Sophie. I can’t see trans women being recognized by theocracies or, despite its past use of hormones for female competitors, the Sovi- Russia. It will be hotly contested.

It won't bring down the entire thing, only the female's side.

Maybe they would if a bunch of dudes were playing in it.

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics ... ar-BBW7KnG
Mr. Johnson, a 27-year-old law student, said the large field was a great equalizer, and “if at the end of it we get an old white guy, someone who represents the status quo, it’ll be because they’ve proven themselves.”

Ms. Neal, a dental hygienist, made an agonized face at Mr. Johnson, her boyfriend. Wouldn’t something be lost, she asked, if the historically diverse slate of 2020 Democrats was passed over?

“Personally, I’d love to see a woman,” Ms. Neal, also 27, said at the event on Thursday night. “If people are being catty and holding gender or race against a candidate, it would break my heart.”
;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D
