She's a man. Simple as. That said, if her opponents don't care, then I'm not inclined to care either.

Regarding Caster Semenya the sprinter she wasn't a tranny, she was intersex. She was born with a vagina and had male testes inside.


I want to see this chick fight Ronda Rousey so we can finally put the debates to rest.

Caster Semenya basically had a birth defect that wasn't in her control. Fallon Fox was born a man and has knocked out five women fighting as a woman. She's misrepresented herself and will never be accepted to a major promotion.

I'm curious, how do you feel she has misrepresented herself? Most transsexual people attempt to leave their past behind them when they transition, should she be forced to be different? I understand this is a different environment because she's a fighter, but the bottom line is, she is a woman and shouldn't be treated as anything different.

Thanks to Killz for the great sig!

She misrepresented herself by claiming to be licensed in CA.
leading FL. to assume she had proven herself qualified to compete as a woman.

I'm curious Cowgirl, in your opinion, would someone like Fallon have any strength advantage over other women her body weight?

Honestly I think this woman could probably beat Cyborg because she'd have a strength advantage over her. I think the promotion that put on her fight needs to find a replacement in order to save face. This woman will probably loose her license and never fight again in the US.

See, I got the feeling that wasn't Kanto's reasoning, which is why I asked . Speaking from experience, any strength advantage you have from being a guy, goes out the window when you start hormone therapy. Consider this, when Fallon started taking hormones, she also began taking an androgen blocker. She was preventing her body from producing testosterone. Again, speaking from experience, that kills the muscle mass, it's like starting all over again. Contrary to popular belief, hormone therapy isn't just about feminizing looks, the only thing it does for that is soften the skin, redistribute some body fat, and of course grow breasts. That's all surface deep, bigger changes happen internally which can't be seen. So, oldfan, to answer your question, no I don't believe there is any strength advantage in this situation.

Why do you think this?
