Women throughout history have been marginalized, ostracized, isolated, or considered evil temptresses. They’ve been stigmatized as ‘unclean’ during monthly courses. Some religions requiring cleansing before returning to marital duties.
Women still have to be smarter, more attractive, better dressed, work harder, and overcome stereotypes to achieve promotions in many industries.
No doubt the decision one makes to transition to another sec is a painful one filled with questions, doubt, confusion and awareness that they are going to experience discrimination from some unaware people. I admire anyone that seeks to be true to one’s self. But, those born with male chromosomes have different biological features that prevent transgender women from participating in womens competitive sports on a fair playing field.
Be all that you can be. But, think about fairness. Lia Thomas did not play fairly in collegiate swimming. Amy Schneider performed with excellence on a level playing field when she delivered an amazing performance on Jeopardy. Amy succeeded using her beautiful mind. Lia succeeded ungraciously using a man’s strength and physical prowess in a woman’s sport that requires physical strength, endurance and lung capacity. There is a difference.
FYI! We loved The Amy Show!
