So, what about all those fake male champions?

For this week?s article and as a follow up to last week?s?article I?ve decided to attempt?to answer the following questions:

Where are all the fake men wanting to compete in men’s sports?

Are fake women in reality just average male athletes competing as women so that they can be winners?

On the male to female side there’s our very own Laurel Hubbard. He has had a mediocre career although he did set some junior records all the way back in 1998. Then after a bit of gender reassignment and competing as a woman, he managed to get himself ranked as number one in the 2017 World Masters Games, 2017 Commonwealth Championships, 2017 Oceanic Championships, and number two at the 2017 World Championships.

Not that changing his gender had anything to do with his new found success of course.

As has been mentioned on this blog, we have the Canadian transgender cyclist Rachel McKinnon, who won the UCI Masters Track Cycling World Championships this year. Unfortunately, though there is not much information available on his career competing as a cyclist in the Men’s category. Can I take from that that he didn’t win any championships before he switched gender?

We also have Dutch cyclist Natalie van Gogh who went under the knife in 2005. You can have a look at his stats prior to and after 2005 here.

On the female to male side, we have American triathlete Chris Mosier. Chris started competing as a woman in 2009, started transitioning in 2010, and in 2015 managed to score herself a spot in the Team USA sprint duathlon men?s team. So score one for the fake men.

There?s American swimmer Schuyler Bailar. Schuyler played for the girls as part of the Harvard Women?s swimming team but then in 2013 after transitioning to the other side got offered and accepted a place in the Harvard Men?s swimming team. Unfortunately, I couldn?t get much information on how well she did as part of the bloke?s team.

Finally, there?s hammer thrower Keelin Godsey. Keelin was born female and has self-identified as a male since 2005. Unfortunately, it seems that Keelin has only managed to competed in women?s hammer throw competitions (not good enough for the men?s team perhaps?).

Conclusion? Jury is still out. I wasn?t able to find examples of women who have won championships competing as men but there are certainly examples of men competing as women who have enjoyed championship level success.

Perhaps the most reprehensible dude to become a dudette and compete as a woman is MMA fighter Fallon Fox. To put it in the most favourable way for Mr Fallon Fox here’s a guy who becomes a fake woman and then proceeds to a career of legally beating up real women.

Transgender MMA fighter Fallon Fox struck a blow for the patriarchy by smashing his female opponent’s eye socket

As UFC color commentator Joe Rogan put it: quote.

Quote:?First of all, she’s not really a she. She’s a transgender, post-op person. The operation doesn’t shave down your bone density. It doesn’t change. You look at a man’s hands and you look at a woman’s hands and they’re built different. They’re just thicker, they’re stronger, your wrists are thicker, your elbows are thicker, your joints are thicker. Just the mechanical function of punching, a man can do it much harder than a woman can, period.” end?of quote.

In other words, a man will always have physical advantages over a woman no matter how much hormone replacement therapy he goes through.
