This is the second time in a week that I write about something like this, but it is always important to make note when it happens.
Recently, former tennis player and openly gay activist Martina Navratilova wrote an op-ed for the Sunday Times of London where she voiced her concern regarding transgender women (men who turn female) playing against biological women and having a natural advantage as a result.
“To put the argument at its most basic: a man can decide to be female, take hormones if required by whatever sporting organization is concerned, win everything in sight and perhaps earn a small fortune, and then reverse his decision and go back to making babies if he so desires… It’s insane and it’s cheating. I am happy to address a transgender woman in whatever form she prefers, but I would not be happy to compete against her. It would not be fair.”
Seems fairly reasonable, wouldn’t you think? She’s not outright dropping any support for transgenders, but she is voicing her concern regarding physically superior transwomen competing against biological women and having a natural advantage every time out.
But instead of being willing to have a conversation with her, who very much is still adamant about supporting LGBT “rights”, the LGBT-friendly sports group Athlete Ally completely dropped her as an ambassador and from the group altogether.
Athlete Ally released a statement regarding Navralitova’s piece:
“Athlete Ally unequivocally stands on the side of trans athletes and their right to access and compete in sport free from discrimination. Martina Navratilova’s recent comments on trans athletes are transphobic, based on a false understanding of science and data, and perpetuate dangerous myths that lead to the ongoing targeting of trans people through discriminatory laws, hateful stereotypes and disproportionate violence… As an organization dedicated to addressing root causes of homophobia and transphobia in and through sport, we will only affiliate with those committed to the same goal, and not those who further misinformation or discrimination in any way.”
Boy, can I have a lot of fun with this one.
First of all, I find it hilarious that they try and call Navralitova “transphobic” for voicing her opinion regarding this issue. It’s a darn cliché at this point. Everyone who disagrees with me in this day and age can only be a Nazi, or a fascist, or a racist, or a homophobe or a transphobe or a veganphobe (just watch, that will be a thing soon enough) or whatever negative accusation one can come up with.
Anyone who disagrees with me is literally Hitler and there’s no room for discussion, so such opinion existing must be eliminated and all affiliations with that person must be ended and that person be made to suffer as a consequence of their reasonable actions or thoughts.
Second, don’t b.s. me about what science and data says. Grab any 5th grade biology book, look into DNA and chromosomes and you will see what science has to say about gender “stereotypes”. The fact of the matter is, as I stated in my previous article surrounding a similar topic, men are physically superior to women on average.
On an individual case, yes, sometimes a woman beats a man in a contest of physicality. Which is why, whenever anyone says “well, if trans people playing against women is cheating, why aren’t they winning all the time?” I will say just that: sometimes, a woman can best a man in a physical event.
For example, I myself used to sort of play tennis when I was younger. The very first somewhat legitimate game I ever had (in which I was neither playing against my parents or against my coach) was against a girl that was maybe a couple of years younger than me. I was maybe ten while she was likely no older than 9 herself, around 7 or 8.
I lost… badly. That doesn’t mean she was physically superior to me in any way. While I was a young kid, I undoubtedly was still physically stronger than her. However, multiple factors can contribute to such a loss.
Primarily, that was my first “real” game against someone while she herself had been playing for longer (at least that’s what my coach told me after I lost and I legit started to cry because I was 10 and just lost to a younger girl, which hurt my pride). The girl was more experienced than me and that helped her out.
So there most certainly can be cases of women beating men in a physical competition. But the fact remains that men are physically superior to women on average.
Going back to my NBA/WNBA comparison, most halfway decent players in the NBA would likely dominate in the WNBA, while not one WNBA player would likely do that well against NBA players.
One of the biggest challenges for college players joining the NBA is getting their bodies “NBA ready”. There’s a major difference between college basketball and NBA basketball that goes beyond the distance of the three-point line. NBA players are older, bigger, stronger and more physically dominant than college players. Look at pictures of a rookie LeBron James, Kevin Durant or Giannis Antetokounmpo compared to today and you will see they did not have NBA ready bodies back then, but most certainly do now.
So that’s a problem MEN face. How much more likely would a female athlete be able to compete against NBA players in anything regarding physicality?
Whatever “science” and “data” these people are using are anything but scientific. It’s propaganda made to fit their erroneous narrative that totally betrays science while pretending to be science. Like the media claiming to be objective, no one with a brain buys that men are not physically superior to women on average.
The third and final thing I want to talk about regarding these idiots’ decision to drop one of their best allies in the world of sports for the heinous crime of disagreeing about something is that I want to highlight the sort of self-destructive behavior that must accompany their self-destructive ideology.
It’s no secret that I think the Leftist ideology, socialist ideology, is self-destructive. Not only does it not work anywhere it’s tried, but it fails miserably, creating tons of human suffering, and for the literally idiotic belief from Karl Marx that you can go from 100% government control of pretty much everything to zero need for any government at all and a people fully capable of ruling themselves without a government and laws to protect them as Marx believed the last phase of communist evolution would be.
It’s ludicrous and self-destructive. But not only is the ideology self-destructive, so are the people that push for it.
Martina Navratilova has been an advocate for LGBT rights for ages, particularly in the age of Reagan and AIDS when people thought the disease was a gay-only disease. In many ways, she was a pioneer for gay people, both within and without the world of sports. And all it takes to eliminate her work for these people is one differing opinion regarding transgenderism and sports.
All it took was not being “woke” enough for this group to drop her completely. Anything to the right of Marx, even within lifelong Democrats and Leftist allies, simply cannot be allowed to remain and they cannot allow themselves to associate with such people.
Today, being a feminist can cause ire on the Left if you don’t count transwomen as actual women.
They eliminate their own in an effort to keep moving farther and farther to the left if their own aren’t “woke” enough.
I imagine Martina must feel pretty jaded for the current treatment she’s receiving. I doubt she ever thought the same people she helped throughout her life and career would betray her like this.
But this further goes to show the kind of mentality of the Left: agree with us all the time or be made to suffer.
No room for independent thought whatsoever. And definitely no room for independent thought that is backed up by reason, logic and outright facts.
Here’s hoping Martina Navratilova opens her eyes to the sort of monster that the Left is and opens her eyes to Christ as well that she might believe in Him and be saved.
“So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed in him, ‘If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.’”
