But they compete within the same sex.
And yes... your women's team were beaten by some 15 year old boys

Serena Williams is the greatest tennis player of all time?!?! Serena Williams was destroyed by a male ranked 203rd in the world who had just played a game of golf and drank two shandies. He then beat her sister.

There is no comparison between male and female sports, that's why they keep them apart.

Transgender athletes are destroying women's sports

You can't cheat the nature and medicine. This issue has been very active for the last 4-5 years and the negative voice is raising every year.

I just hope men won't protect them, though. :mrgreen: They should take care of their own mess as an equal sex, capable of dealing with this situation. :lol: :mrgreen:

Joke aside. One is crystal clear - this isn't going to happen in men's sports and everybody with a pinch of logic shall know why. :wink:

Just put Stipe Miočić and Fabricio Werdum in octagon against Ronda Rousey and Gina Carano. I bet Dana White would immediately invite an undertaker and cemetery service.

I didn’t decide this. Reputable journalists decided the science of this.

“Attempting to describe the true level of Serena Williams’s greatness is pointless. Or, rather, was pointless. In 2017, three things are certain: death, taxes, and misogynistic asshats who devalue the accomplishments of women, necessitating nonsense activities like defending Serena Williams’s greatness”

https://www.thedailybeast.com/serena-wi ... the-debate

As for the transgender debate, there’s this hard-hitting piece from huffington post: “the IOC does not consider being transgender an unfair advantage. The IOC did, however, consider drinking too much coffee an unfair competitive advantage for nearly 20 years. The IOC still considers baking soda a potential doping agent, though.”

Fair warning you will probably be sued by the state of California for your discrimination and barred from entry to the state. I’m sorry but it is what it is.

“The men’s circuit is different. The play is different. Williams is stronger than some of the men, and some of the men are stronger than she is, but the difference is that the men in that circuit are conditioned to play at a level that Williams, if she were to appear in one or two stunt matches against a high-ranked player, isn’t conditioned to.”

That was clearly a stunt match and doesn’t count. Also Serena isn’t conditioned to play actual tennis, so just because the 203rd man was better than her doesn’t mean she isn’t the greatest tennis player ever.

What is the worth of “reputable” in journalism? And how do they “decide” the science of anything? What a silly statement.

Serena won’t be the greatest tennis player in a million years because she is inferior. It’s really that simple. And people know it. They can spin it into hatred, bias, matter of sex and race, but people will still know it. She plays in an inferior subset of the tennis community, against weaker opposition and enjoys more lenient rules.
To put it into practical terms - she never competed for a title in a 5 set match.

Serena is PSG of tennis.

It should be a human rights violation to attack the press in this way. Probably actually already is. The prize money for women at wimbledon is equal to the men, which shows that actually women’s tennis is considered more valuable on a per set basis. Even Hollywood recognizes the greater importance of women as shown by the new Billie Jean King movie coming out where she beat that one dude. No one is going to make a movie about some rando man beating Serena.

Press doesn’t have human rights, it’s not a person. And I don’t know which attack you are referencing here?

The prize money being equal is based on a political principle, not on evaluation. Given the vast discrepancy in quality and popularity of WTA and ATP, there is no way to establish such an evaluation in favor of WTA.

Hollywood is a really odd argument, at this point you are surely joking. But you are right in one aspect - nobody is making a movie about a random pro beating Serena because it’s expected of random pro to beat her, given the difference of quality. Fairy tales sell better, but they make for a shitty argument.

I hope that you realise that they do this for the media attention, right? Also, still a good thing to have. What if the kid has a gender neutral aunt/uncle? Do you hide your family member from them or do you want them to show acceptance?

LET CHILDREN BE CHILDREN, when they grow they will understand... and children are innocent for them everyone is a person ... maybe at nine or ten they will start to realize certain things.. but please not at four five or six years old.
