British Cycling, the national governing body for the sport of cycling in Britain, is the latest body to bar transgender women from competing in the female category, reports The Guardian.

The organization said the decision was made after a nine-month review of the latest science, to “safeguard the fairness” of the sport.

Good 👍 Show.


If you put 100 trans women and ten men on an island in 100 years all that will be left is the skeletons of 110 men. What a coincidence that the trans folks are always or mostly always winning against women. And when we’re told that “she” has transitioned are we talking full peniledectomy ??? Because if not that’s just called drag.


Why is this Bridges person upset and calling this a violent act for being categorized in a fair class? This reminds me of the one Seinfeld episode where Kramer was boasting about being the top student in his karate class…..a class with eight year olds other than him.


Finally an organization with some spine pushing back against the cancellation of women.
