6.5 Will Hormones and Surgery Change Me into the Opposite Sex?

Not totally.  Every animal including human animals has the instructions that guided their development stored in packages of DNA called chromosomes.  Every cell in a male other than sperm cells has an X and a Y chromosome.  Every cell in a female other than egg cells have two X chromosomes.  Taking hormones will not change that.  Surgery won't change that either.  Surgery and hormones can't make a man able to give birth to a baby.  One characteristic of males is that they tend to be stronger and bigger than females.  Fully grown males who take female hormones tend to remain stronger than most females.  The result is that transgenders beat most females in sports.  One of the great things about sports is it develops the human spirit.  The competitive spirit encourages people to achieve all they can achieve.  If they can't win no matter how hard they try they lose that competitive spirit and learn to give up.  Transgender athletes can seriously hurt women they compete against.  Fallon a biological man competed in a mixed martial arts competition (MMA) against Tamikka Brents.  The fight lasted just over 2 minutes before the referee had to end it.  Brents had to receive 7 staples to her head and her orbital bone was fractured.  Brents said "I’ve never felt so overpowered ever in my life and I am an abnormally strong female in my own right."  Women don't just get hurt by biological men in MMA fights.  The young woman interviewed below was injured by a transgender competitor while playing volleyball.


At the University of Pennsylvania a man who decided he was a transgender and named himself Lia, competed in women's swim meets and broke lots of records.  A teammate spoke to Worldnetdaily about this on condition of anonymity.  She said she was afraid to give her real name because it could interfere with her getting a job. She said in regard to Lia competing on the women's team "I think secretly everyone just knows it's the wrong thing to do" and "When the whole team is together, we have to be like, 'Oh my gosh, go Lia, that's great, you're amazing.' It's very fake."  She said "When I have kids, I kinda hope they’re all boys because if I have any girls that want to play sports in college, good luck. [Their opponents] are all going to be biological men saying that they’re women." 

The women on the Penn swimming team were threatened by the Penn athletic department.  They were told that if they spoke out against Leah Thomas competing for the women's team they would regret it.  Paula Scanlon, a woman who used to compete for the Penn women's swim team talks about that in the video below.


Riley Gaines, a swimmer from the University of Kentucky who tied Thomas and had to share a lockerroom with him testified before Congress.  David Rubin created a very good clip about it which I've included below.


JP did a funny video in which he pretends to be a female swimming competitor and in which he pretends he thinks it's the right thing to do.  The video is embedded below.


 Kara Dansky wrote a book called  The Abolition of Sex: How the “Transgender” Agenda Harms Women and Girls. Kara says the problem of legislation equating transgenders with women goes far beyond women's sports.  You can see a video of her speaking about this below. 


The following is a video of a high school girls track race that took place in Utah.  Would it have been discriminatory to keep the winner out of the race?
