Hey man, I can totally understand your opinion on the subject, however I think personal freedom is paramount. If I was a woman would I fight fox? no, I probably would not. Should I have the choice? Absolutely.
I feel sorry for fallon fox, she clearly has a female gender but was born with male sex and thus can’t change her gender, but can have a sex change. I wish nothing but happiness for her, however, there is no question she has an unfair advantage. In my view she must inform the opponents of her circumstances, but if both are OK with it, why force your personal beliefs on what people should or should not do on two consenting adults?[/quote]
My issue with Fox is that at the start of her fighting career, she lied about her situation. I don’t feel sorry for this fucking liar. This is why many people believe she joined the fighting scene only in the hope to easily obliterate the competition, knowing full well how much of an added advantage she had on her opponents. She hasn’t even apologise to the girls who were unaware of her past. All she’s good at shouting right now is, everyone is ignorant of transgender issues or fear her and all that fucking shit. Fuck her. I promise you, had she been honest before hand, I wouldn’t dislike her as I do now.
I look at her and all I see is a man wearing a fucking wig with fake boobs. I’ve seen more feminine Thai lady boys than Fox, and they look more convincing as women, because they’ve started their transition before puberty. Fox still looks like man to me, I’m sorry. She hasn’t changed at all in six years of hormone therapy. The bone structure, her jaw and her hands are fucking massive. Hormones don’t alter this after six years only. Watch her fights and see how devastating her blows are to the other girls. I’m not even that shocked when Cyborg pummel other girls but Fox is just something else. Hell, I didn’t have an issue with Gabrielle Ludwig, the transgender who joined some Junior girls basketball team. But This is MMA.
And by the way, I am a bisexual woman, and I should probably show some support to Fox but I don’t feel like it. I’ve trained and (still train occasionally) with men throughout my combat career. As a very experienced Judoka, it can be easy for me to throw, grapple, armbar or choke a man heavier than me, but when it comes to striking, that’s another story. I can take a punch (I’m a masochist by the way) but there is no denying that the force generated by a man’s punch or kick is far more superior than a woman’s. I’ve been punched – broken teeth, black eye, broken jaw and all that shit – in fights with men who didn’t feel like taking easy on me. Men are stronger than women. Period. (Fox can’t have those anyway… lol)
If some girls choose to fight her, good for them. But I’d take it is certainly under pressure to make money and what have you. I wouldn’t fight her if I were one of those girls, only because I didn’t sign up to fight a 31 years old man. I signed up to fight other women. If I wanted to fight men, I’d join some mixed division — which don’t exist in Combat tournaments, because thankfully, someone had the good sense to understand and acknowledge men and women physiology differences. Now they want to amend that just 'cos they wanna accommodate Fox and be PC? You gotta be fucking kidding me.
Sorry for the essay but I feel strongly about this.
