GamingThread Kotaku: "Ronda Rousey Being In Mortal Kombat 11 Is Bullshit"
Reason User Banned (1 Week): Transphobic Rhetoric
I'm no fan of Rhonda and there is a lot not to like about her but I don't understand how her comments about the physical advantages of trans women over their cis gendered opponents are transphobic. Is this just something that we are not allowed to discuss because it's uncomfortable? Just today there is an article: about a trans woman dominating a weightlifting competition breaking 4 world records in the process. There are competitors that feel like they don't have the ability to compete with her and are considering dropping out of competition because of this trans woman's unfair advantage (she competed in male competitions for 9 years before her transition). I strongly believe in LGBTQ rights and I am anti discrimination of anyone but it definitely looks like bulking up as biological male for a decade has given her a serious unfair advantage. Am I transphobic for thinking this way?
