Davey is in Jennifer Wagner's camp

She has Davey's heartfelt sympathy

And a Tip of the Hat to Katie Hopkins

==============================
Democrats, the party of Let's pretend wrote:
A mentally ill gay man pretending to be a woman, is still just a
mentally ill gay man.

The American bronze medalist who lost a world-championship
cycling race to a transgender woman from Canada has criticized
the results as unfair.

"First transgender woman world champion...ever," Rachel
McKinnon, an assistant professor of philosophy at the College of
Charleston in South Carolina, bragged Sunday in a tweet that set
off a massive debate.

After Rachel McKinnon bragged about being the "first transgender
woman world champion," the third-place finisher in the cycling
event claimed it wasn't fair. (Rachel McKinnon/Twitter)

McKinnon gave a talk at the College of Charleston earlier this
year asking: “Is it fair for transwomen athletes to compete in
women’s categories?”

While McKinnon argues it is, given the rules and regulations
adopted by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the
Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), the bronze medalist felt
another way at the finish of the world championships.

“It’s definitely NOT fair,” Jennifer Wagner, the third-place
finisher from Houston, said in response to a tweet from British
conservative Katie Hopkins.

For clarity - this was the WOMENS world championships.

I repeat. Women’s.

Congratulations to the brave faces of silver & bronze. The world
is gripped by a febrile madness.

I was the 3rd place rider. It’s definitely NOT fair.

Hopkins tweeted an image of the three cyclists on the podium
with this caption: “For clarity – this was the WOMENS world
championships. I repeat. Women’s. Congratulations to the brave
faces of silver & bronze. The world is gripped by a febrile
madness.”

Carolien van Herrikhuyzen, the silver medalist representing the
Netherlands and a friend of McKinnon, disagreed.

“No one is a transgender to steal anyone’s medal,” van
Herrikhuyzen wrote. “We had an honest race under UCI rules. If
you compete you accept the rules, otherwise, don’t compete. I
can only imagine what she had to go through in her life to be
where she is now, how hard it is to fit in.”

Wagner snapped back: “Just because it’s a CURRENT UCI rule
doesn’t mean it[‘s] fair or right. And rules can be changed.”

Four days later, after a firestorm of controversy, Wagner
apologized to McKinnon, adding that she will work to get the
rules changed offline to avoid more controversy.


“After having some time to reflect, I realize my twitter
comments earlier this week unintentionally fanned the flames on
a controversial situation, and that I regret,” Wagner wrote. “I
made the comments out of a feeling of frustration, but they
weren't productive or positive.”

Wagner added: “While I may not agree with the rules when I pin
on a number I agree to race by them.”

And she ended: “I apologize, @rachelvmckinnon , for not properly
congratulating you on race day. I hope you accept it a few days
late. Congratulations and enjoy your off-season. Thanks,
everyone, for reading.”

But McKinnon refused to accept her apology: “She merely
apologizes for being caught saying it publicly. She wants to ban
trans women from competing. They will fail…”


Dr. Rachel McKinnon
@rachelvmckinnon
This is why the apology is not accepted: she still thinks what
she said. She merely apologizes for being caught saying it
publicly. She wants to ban trans women from competing. They will
fail: the IOC openly allowed us in 2003 and revised their
policies in 2015. #MoveOn

@jkwagnermd
For those of you who think I have "folded" I have not. There's
a group of us working on getting the rules changed but we are
going to fight it offline, not in the name-calling angry world
of social media. I'm choosing to move on in a positive way.

McKinnon labeled critics as “transphobic bigots” and pointed out
that Wagner could face sanctions for allegedly violating the USA
Cycling’s policy against harassment for “creating hostile
environments or disparaging remarks against people on the basis
of gender identity.”

As of 2015, IOC guidelines require biologically born men who
identify as transgender to block certain amounts of natural
testosterone, but no longer require gender reassignment surgery.
McKinnon argues testing is against human rights because there is
no way to measure if testosterone provides an advantage, instead
pointing to civil rights.

“By catering to cisgender people’s views, that furthers
transgender people’s oppression. When it comes to extending
rights to a minority population, why would we ask the majority?”
McKinnon told USA Today. “I bet a lot of white people were
****ed off when we desegregated sports racially and allowed
black people. But they had to deal with it.”
