NPR Laments ‘Gender-Segregated’ Competitive Sports As ‘Exclusive’

An NPR article, published Sunday, laments “gender-segregated” sports, suggesting that separation of men and women in competitive sports be reconsidered in order to accommodate leftist notions of “gender” and “transgenderism.”

    Oh, NFL very exclusive – there should be a quota on transgender players.

    • David Murrell

      There will be soon be an upper quota on the number of players who respect the American flag and national anthem.

    Oh, to see a bunch of bitchy feminazis getting tackled by some 300+ pound linebackers… It would be GLORIOUS!!! 😉

  • Hard Little Machine

    I agree. Don’t ‘gender’ segregate sports. And here is the list of sports where today, there is no material difference in the performance between men and women

    Darts
    Archery
    Rifle and Skeet
    Sailing
    Table Tennis
    Dressage

    And here are some that are probably agnostic on gender

    Bocce
    Badminton
    Figure skating
    Curling
    Croquet

    So let’s only have those sports. Because the first day a 6’3″ 215lb lacrosse player cracks open a girls head or a field hockey player from the Caribbean breaks a girl’s leg or a high school football player kills a girl and then they get stomped in every single track and field event, every weight lifting event, every tennis match, every bowling tournament, every baseball game, every basketball game and every downhill and every cross country skiing event then that experiment is over.

      Can’t wait for boxing, MMA and car racing with mixed sexes.

        We’ve had both sexes in auto racing. That’s why we have the spectacular driving feat of Danica Patrick spinning out while under the yellow flag in the Indy 500.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kTmTVkmo6po

          Heh, brutal. But she shore is purdy!

          I’ve noticed lots of girls are named Danica now also.

      it is over.

    Men’s leagues are, on the whole, fine with women and transgenders in their ranks. The NHL, for example, is open to anyone (although Manon Rhéaume is the only woman to ever play, and then only in exhibition).

    It’s women leagues which are going to be hurt by this. Are progressives trying to destroy women’s sports?

    • There will be win/lose quotas. Everyone gets a turn.

    • Chris

      I would say it is the destruction of all organized sports that is their goal. To SJW’s there can be nothing more hurtful to society than to honour and celebrate anyone who has skills that set them apart from the rest. In their Marxist world view everyone must be held back so that the least skilled doesn’t feel left out.

      • Killer Marmot

        It is readily apparently by looking at them that SJWs despise athletics of all kinds.

      • A Hamilton Guy

        When I was trained in Winter Survival; we were trained that the least skilled got eaten.

  • The Butterfly

    If this will get rid of that abomination called women’s “hockey”, then this butterfly is all for it.

    • Clausewitz

      Until such time as the Canadian Woman’s team can beat a boy rep Midget team, it’s hard to take them seriously.

  • canminuteman

    Yes they should, the should get rid of all “men’s” and “women’s” sports. Go for it, see how it works out.

      National Public Radio is officially part of the loony, off-the-rocker fringe. In a way articles like this are good, since they serve as unwitting, unintended self-parody, parody that damages NPR. After all, who in their right mind would agree with such idiocy?

      • shasta

        “who in their right mind would agree”

        The problem is there isn’t that many in their right mind.

  • CaligulaJones

    I’ll add this to the bulging “sports are terrible for society because they are violent, oh look, a girl is good at them, never-mind” file…

    Seriously, I hope to live long enough for the inevitable thalidomide-like lawsuits from the Jenners and Mannings who will sue everybody and anybody for not stopping their “transitions”. Sure, we’ll all have to pay, but I LOVE to say, “I told you so”.

    I’ll now add, the inevitable lawsuits from the unqualified who get maimed trying to prove a point.

    Oh, and all the female athletes born with ovaries who will be forced to compete with female athletes born with testicles. Lets face it: there won’t be a record left in a few years.

    Remember when the East Germans were turning their Olympic women into men-women and we actually considered this to be a bad thing? But this is what the left have always wanted to do. Break down everything and then build things in their image and don’t dare get in their way.
