EtcetEraThread THIS IS WHY YOU VOTE. ESPN: Trump’s Justice Department on Connecticut Case: “Don’t treat trans athletes as girls
Reason User Banned (Permanent): Transphobic concern trolling. Previously banned for pedantry in threads concerning trans issues.
Why are these people being insta-banned for a month? It's sad that I have to worry that me even asking this makes me worried I'll get banned as well. Is this site taking the stand that thinking in any way that trans-women competing in with women opens the door to unfair advantages is necessarily transphobic? Can somebody not have the view that the intention behind separations of genders was meant to be around the practical understanding that male and female physiology is different and that can matter in sports. And is it transphobic to recognize that transition does not always remove these physiological differences? Like, I'll admit that I'm not as familiar as those who are going through these transitions, not anywhere close. But I am under the understanding that transition isn't the same for everybody. This is entirely separate from whatever the transphobic Trump administration is trying to do and I don't really believe they are coming to anything here with any good intentions. But to me, the insta-month long ban on this is alarming. I am under the perception here that you can expect swift bans here now in a very inconsistent way. Not that I would necessarily want the exact same thing to happen with black issues, but it is clear that there is much more waffling on the moderation on those issues.
