Trans Powerlifter: I’m ‘Still Deciding’ Whether to Compete as a Man or a Woman

The world-record powerlifter formerly known as Matt “Kroc” Kroczaleski, who recently came out as transgender and requested to be called “Janae Marie,” has announced that she’s “still deciding” whether to compete as a man or a woman going forward.

    Gosh, I can’t decide either.

    • It’s a coin toss alright.

    • Linda1000

      Some males are so confused – they should not be allowed to vote ever.

    • DVult

      Ask him to make a sandwich. Real men cannot make a sandwich if their life depended on it. If he toasts it then that will seal the deal – woman.

      • Jay Currie

        I’ll have you know I managed to keep myself and my young son alive for 10 long days on a diet which consisted almost entirely of toasted BLTs.

        (OK, he was whimpering for Mummy to cook “real food” when she got home…but I can make my own damn sandwich.)

        • DVult

          Exceptions are made when the life and death of children is at stake as long as you no longer knew how to make the sandwich when the danger subsided (a woman reappeared on the scene). You also get extra points for only making one type of sandwich.

    I have a solution for the trans power lifter. If he/she can’t decide what gender it is than it can try a genderless weight pulling competition.

    • Hard workin doggy!

    • Linda1000

      F**kheads in the video – that’s doggy abuse – same as dog fighting rings. Solo dog pulling extreme weight = extreme injuries – they are not horses. Most people are too stupid to be good dog owners.

  • Petey

    In a strong, in a real society, that is decided for her. Sorry honey, you have no say in anything with real world consequences.

  • Canadian

    It should compete as a thing.

  • El Martyachi

    … feminism ends up removing actual females from female sports. Oh, darn.

  • ntt1

    well if you get to keep your junk yet enjoy the testosterone boost of maleness over other actual women less hormonally blessed, then go for it . but it does seem a bit like kramer and the karate class made up of preteens.

  • Barrington Minge

    If it still has a dick and a pair of bollocks it’s a fella regardless of what it’s wearing.

  • ed

    imagine that with P.M.T. ???

  • FactsWillOut

    Compete in both categories. Then yell “sexist” in the category of his choice. it’s win/win.

  • moraywatson

    Why not compete as a man AND as woman. That would be trendsetting. (Or transetting? Or transcending?)
