The USA has become a society where a large percentage of children grow up without knowing the difference between right and wrong and, therefore, without developing a conscience.

No conscience, no shame, no guilt, leading to craziness!

Mix in arrogance, audacity and egoistic impudence with craziness and we get evil, senseless monsters defecating around us.

Crazy senseless monsters can only produce the results they are capable of producing.

The rest of us have a great responsibility to turn things around before it all ends up into the biggest sewage tank.

Unfortunately, the current US government has also been spreading the craziness worldwide while opposing all sanity from the most unlikely sources like Putin or even China. Both are watching the self-destruction of USA with amusement!

Title IX was a solution looking for a problem. Like all government regulation, it arrived with a boatload of unexpected collateral consequences.

I agree that a better long-term approach is to create a sports entertainment product that will sell tickets. If women bought season tickets and filled stadiums for women's sports, then yay! If not, develop other funding methods.

I reject the idea that women can't have competitive sports without forcing other sports to charity fund them.

In Iowa, when I was young, women's high school basketball was incredibly popular. It was unique in its game compared to men's. It is cherished to this day even though it is gone now. Gymnasiums were packeted to the rafters.

Today, in my rural area, tractor pulls have men and women competitors. They pull in the same classes, with similar rigs, generating competitive and winning results. We all love it. There is no special or different treatment for gender. There is little recognition of gender other than collegial compliments.

Like everything in life, the government has unlimited ability to ruin everything it touches.

You may not "want" to be related but it doesn't matter; you always will be.

You can cut off your dick, you can change your name, you can shun your parents and all that's fine. As an adult we all have those choices.

But you can't change who your parents are; you will always be related to them and that happened before there was anything you can do about it, and it will never, ever change.

To claim that you DON'T WANT that is fine.
To claim you CAN DO THAT is mental illness.

Quoting this tweet from athlete Ally, a blue checkmark, for those without twatter:
Quote:
Fina's new eligibility criteria for transgender athletes and athletes with intersex variations is discriminatory, harmful, unscientific and not in line with the 2021 IOC principles. If we truly want to protect women sports, we must include all women.


These people think you are stupid. Nothing about their statement makes any sense or is factual.

I lived in Sacramento back in the "aughts" and the Sac Kings were the big thing. Arco arena was packed for all their games, and tickets for us mere mortals were hard to come by and usually nosebleeds only. I attended fewer than 5 games in all the years I was there.
I also went to a handful of Monarchs games (the XX version of the Kings), and they couldn't fill the first 2 tiers of seats. The first tier was mostly full, but the second was only about 30% filled. The upper tiers were blocked off completely.
I did enjoy watching the Monarch games, and many of the wins were hard fought for. But the women were not in any way, shape or form as good as the men. And despite huge advertising budgets they never could interest the public in paying to go see them. They eventually just 'disappeared" - the team didn't move or get sold, it was just dissolved.
I think the biggest difference to me was that the women were more serious and "technical" in their execution. They concentrated on playing. There was no real connection with the fans, and they may as well have been playing on a high school court with no audience.
The men, on the other hand, were much more "theatrical" - they were good enough and confidant enough in their abilities that they could afford to play to the crowd. The swagger and chest thumping and interaction with the crowd was what brought the fans in and kept them coming back. The men were just way more entertaining than the women.

We don't see any women pretending to be men trying to compete in men's sports do we? Perhaps persons like "Lia" Thomas don't understand the lyric from Tammy Wynette's song that it is sometimes hard to be a woman.

There are a few women's sports that are more fun to watch than men's (my favorite two are volleyball [especially beach] and modern tennis) but even then only in small doses.

I think those two stand out because the technology and general fitness at top levels have out scaled the rules. The tennis court is too small for men's hits, though watching some of the athleticism is fun. Volleyball, the men are so far above the net it gets boring.

Are you watching for the peak athleticism or are you watching for a good game? Since most people are watching to see people do things they cannot who cares truly about the game itself. Few people remember the score. They remember the big hits or the broken tackles.

"Assigned at birth" is the stupidest shit imaginable. The premise is that a doctor looks at a baby and "decides" the baby's sex. The asswipes running this lie have even "taught" it to grade schoolers. They all need to smiley then smiley, then smiley so we can heal this society a little bit.

Drag racing, tractor pulls, and even race car driving are great equalizers, but only because the strength is provided by the tool--not the human.

Golf is another great example of where "equality" doesn't show up like the women would hope. The very, very best women golfers of all time could break into a men's event and participate, but could not compete for the title.

When my 80+ y.o. father comes to visit, we play the forward tees so he and my wife can be comfortable. Guess who plays with them? The 6-handicapper writing this post. Guess who shoots at or below par from the forward tees? Yup. Me.

My wife can tag a drive 180-190. I hit a 5-iron to the same spot. From there, the advantage of my length kicks their butts as I'm hitting sand wedge from 100, and they are hitting mid to long irons/hybrids. It ain't even close.

Amateur men golfers should watch the LPGA and compare themselves to that group of high performing ladies on tour and stop comparing themselves to the men, because the average 18+ man can't fathom hitting an 8 iron 180+ yards that the PGA Tour pros while the LPGA ladies hit their 8 iron about 150--what most single digit men can hit it.

The mental gymnastics being done to square the circle over and over again in the Lefty world is mind boggling to me and my family. Amazing they can reconcile all the BS it takes to hold the positions they do on these topics!

Keep on writing the Truth Karl. We appreciate it!!!

Ingar "We don't see any women pretending to be men trying to compete in men's sports do we?"

If winning is everything, then the Feminists would not do it.

However, in their losing the Feminists could prove to their T "sisters", that it is an unfair competition because of the advantage that biological males have, despite their craziness.

But, unfortunately, without the faculty of conscience, there is no discernment between fair and unfair, and no shame in not knowing that it is the pole that goes into a hole and not vice versa. A hole cannot protrude! But one cannot argue with the crazies.

Yep @Ewtnewbie2.

I suck at golf but that is the absolute truth. From the women's tees I score a LOT better, not a little, because instead of hitting a 5-iron approach shot (assuming I actually hit the fairway with my drive, of course, which is a whole different thing) I'm hitting a 9 iron or a wedge. The accuracy difference between those two clubs is CRAZY; 1 time in 10 I can get in the same circle with a 5 iron I can peg 80+% of my 9-iron shots.

Since putts count the same as drives if I'm an extra 10' from the hole..... yep. Or that approach is short or off-line enough that it goes into the bunker, and then I'm fucked scoring-wise for the hole.

HOLD THE FUCK UP....

So your telling me, 6 year olds are responsible enough to decide their "preferred gender", but we have to protect young adults that can't seem to figure out how school loans work at 18 years old.

What a time to be alive.

These days, I very rarely watch sports, aside from the occasional golf tournament, but I do follow the coverage, mostly for amusement. If one goes on to the website of ESPN, you would think people cared about womens sports, because the WNBA gets almost as much coverage as the NBA. You will get daily updates on Brittney Griner and her ordeal in Russia, from her wife. In golf, they were gushing over the fact that the prize purse for the US Womens Open was $10 million. Of course, the mens purse this past week was $17.5 million, which seems to lack equity, until you realize that at least 5x (likely more) as many people watched the men as watched the women. Essentially, the mens prize money was millions less than than it ought to be, because NBC panders to the woke sports crowd.

I agree with Garbageman67. Women's beach volleyball, which my daughter plays, is far more interesting and fun to watch than men's is because of the size difference. They have to be that much more athletic and dare I say, smart? Men cover the court much easier and just pound it down every chance, instead of the "shots" that women take. One of the best out there right now is only 5'6"!

What is played for fun, but could be made into a "real" sport, is co-ed beach volleyball. The men have to serve to the women, but from there it's interesting to watch it play out.

Let these trans for their own leagues and if there really is so much acceptance, we'll find out.

My daughter was a great high-school and college pole vaulter. I went to most of her track meets. Every year there would be at least one high school male pole vaulter in the district that would beat the women's world record.

@Ewtnewbie2 -- motorsports only to a certain extent. Short events, yes, drag racing, roundy-round, or your weekend SCCA cone-dodging. But there really aren't any women who have made it in things like MotoGP or endurance racing (which can get brutal, I once did a weekend event in South FL where I drank around 8 gallons of water per day and never took a piss once).

Several random thoughts here

! I have been an still am an avid golfer. A guy 20 years my junior Whose ass I kicked routinely has been seeing a "doctor" and over several months he bulked up and was out driving me by 50 yards. he said you should go see him I replied do you have any idea of the ramifications of what you are doing? Things like cancers that are usually juvenile because the body as a child is rapidly developing and cancers love that. Chemo hits rapidly regenerating cells like cancer and hair etc etc Dude I hope you know what you are doing. I have to say its helped his golf game.

Second is why do they still separate men and women's billiards?

2 Things --- well maybe 3 ---

I was a soccer referee (aka football outside the US of A; yep that commie sport; as it refereed very similar to basketball, just on a larger playing surface and more players) before age and injury crept in and I couldn't run like used to. Anyway, this time last year I was assigned to referee a match between probably one of the best U-18 girls teams in my state (of course my state is not known for soccer), who were preparing for a regional tournament, against a U-13 or maybe it was U-14 boys team. The game ended 3-3 but the boys were up late.

Also, I've witnessed so much child-abuse and 'adults' being non-parents it makes me wanna slap them up the back of the head so they'd get a clue. As I've mentioned in other posts my kids were in band at our local high school. The number of kids that purported to be whatever the alphabet soup letter came up in their spoon was simply astounding. And to kick it, the parents were more of a child about it than the kid.

And, lastly, to bring the Coof into this, all I could think about this morning during a local tv news segment on the jab being approved for infants was, "...that parent needs to have that kid taken away and the parent admitted to a mental ward."

I simply am thankful that I had the grandparents, parents, relatives, parents' friends, etc., that would set me straight when I needed it and love me enough to tell me to cut the crap and grow up and would SHOW me how instead of just giving lip service. All of what is happening shows me how blessed I am; even in the midst of crazy. I have to keep remembering that.

"Title IX may be a wart-filled mess but it was passed because women's sports typically received less funding. Is that "fair"? Do you have a right, as a consequence of being alive, to "fairness" in that regard? "

Yes.

I don't think Title IX mandates support for commercial sports ventures.

I think it mandates equal funds for girls' sports at school and college and other public programs.

That is fair. Girls' parents also pay taxes that fund public schools.

When it comes to the huge amounts of money spent on both high school and college sports, IMO and the minds of many others qualified to develop an informed opinion, the pervasive influence of competitive sports in American education and the huge amounts of money spent on sports facilites, is one of the prime reasons that American education standards lag behind those of other countries.

But if sports are to be part of the American educational experience, they should be funded equally. That means, specifically, money for coaches, uniforms, prizes, whatever.
