Perhaps, like me, you've seen the recent reports about banning transsexuals from school sports.

Here's a report to get you the information you need about the issue. In summary, it's as rare as voter fraud.

More right wing crap talk.

2. All part of their culture war

Let me tell you something about trans girls. Taking hormones weakness muscle mass quite a bit. It changed the outer appearance significantly. This shtick about how it gives them an unfair advantage. Okay well have you ever heard of them bitching or complaining about trans boys joining boys sports? No. They are extremely obsessed with who has a penis. It stems all the way back to the bathroom bill shit.

4. Thank you. This answers a question that I posted on DU recently about just how many trans

people are playing team sports. From the reichwingnutjob hysteria, one would think there were millions.

13. Only marginalized group its ok to discriminate openly against

The GOP has lost the culture war battle over gay marriage. It's not OK to discriminate against gay people any more.

But trans people! Now, there's a marginalized minority subset of a marginalized minority we can go after. There just aren't that many, even if there are one in a million, that's just 330 in the United States.

White men making laws that don't apply to themselves regulating what people they are not comfortable with can and can't do.

Why is the GOP so fascinated with what happens inside other people's pants? Mind your own pants, and get your government out of mine. Whether I have dangly bits or pregnancies not carried to term for whatever reason, what business is it of anyone's besides mine?

How does that do anything to establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, or secure the blessings of liberty to anyone?

6. That was one of the first issues the RWNJ legislature...

In Montana jumped on this session. Right up there with voter suppression and banning abortion and sanctuary cities.

8. Sraight-up misogyny

Sraight-up misogyny asserting that women can't compete with men, all based on personal perceptions of penile shortcomings.

9. Um, wot?

You think there shouldn't be any separation of sports with regards to men and women?

10. I question the need for transgender bans

I question the need for banning transgender or establishing transgender leagues

11. Ah, gotcha.

My understanding, though, is that there isn't a ban. Just trying to decide if sports should be segregated by sex or by gender.

I don't think having a separate league for transgender athletes would be worthwhile.

15. Thank you

They want to pass laws for something that's absolutely not an issue.

If it becomes an issue in a case here or there, let the courts sort it out, we don't need discrimination in laws to deal with a hand full of questionable cases nationwide.

16. Hi, that's outdated terminology. "Transgender" is the term you're looking for.
