Ever more inventive uses of the word "racism"

Recommended Posts

So the IAAF have taken action to limit the testosterone level in athletes competing in female races.

I feel they should be congratulated for this and it should be rolled out across all sports. This should deal with the "cocks in frocks" issue, so no more men self-identifying as women and competing against women. 

No idea whether to feel sorry for the South African intersex runner Semenya who will be affected by these rules, if "she" was born like that then it's not really her fault. She's done alright from her odd genetics and a line has to be drawn somewhere. 

However the thing that really caught my eye is that the ANC are calling this racism and mentioning the apartheid era - would they do this if she was white?

Racism will soon mean "any offence to another person", it seems. WTF!

God makes us all different. Some men are a shilling and a half  short in the macho department, some women have quite male characteristics (being able to drive), but that's the world we got, only a fool would want to be somebody else. If this girl is natural, I am OK with that

We are going up a blind alley of correctness that is of our own making.

If anything we should have an intersex class, however, there probably aren't sufficient people with intersex to make a group and intersex has so many different root causes right through to XY karyotypes who present phenotypically as female. In a way, I'd say 'tough' on intersex people. We can't all do everything we want.

Classification by testosterone level, above a threshold level compete with men, is probably, unfair. You could equally, argue that men with testosterone levels below a threshold should be allowed to compete with women.

XY Males and XX Females who choose to self-identify as the opposite sex should not be allowed to compete as their chosen sex, which is what I think this is all about, but nobody has the balls, or not, to admit it.

Two points:-

1) The ANC are as racist as they come anyway

2) The IAAF should launch the trans-sexual games as it would be a bigger TV spectacle than the conventional games.

Been done on here before, completely obvious answer get rid of gender based sports, simple as that. 

Gender based sports make no sense in this modern world, a last vestige of the oppressive patriarchy.

Should be easy to negotiate, have the intersex category (that everyone apart from weirdos will ignore) to sort out the new cocks in frocks lot and give the ANZ a new Olympic event of necklacing, that they will be nailed on every fours years to get 3 golds at.

Forgot the intersex lot could get a gold also

the So-Called BBC will be wetting themselves with excitement at the thought of an intersex Olympics. Wall to wall coverage here we come. 

As for necklacing, I fear its popularity will wane since the death of Saint Winnie Mandela.

If they have mens/womens sport then why not whites/blacks sport to give all races a fair chance at running, swimming, etc

Sport's pretty arbitrary really. Why are there no height categories in basketball? Why, when there are different strokes in swimming, are track sprinting events not also run backwards, hopping, on hands etc?

It used to be that the sports shown were those that had some sort of popular following. So arbitrary as it was, it was whatever version or versions of that sport that had caught the public imagination.

These days the So-Called BBC seem fixated on broadcasting nieche events taking place in empty stadia.

Crazy.

      Following on from comment in the World Cup thread, it would be interesting to see and collect the views of Great Britain, its people, politicians, culture, achievements, direction... as seen from afar.
      Are we revered, a laughing stock or just meh? Is Rule Britannia afloat, listing or sinking below the waves?
      Do other nations have a Health Service that is so policised and integral to political campaigns?
      Are other nations proud and protective of their culture or ashamed of it?

      There was an item on that Tucker Carlson programme a few nights ago where a guest suggested that there is evidence in the US that some migrant run companies to the US are only employing other migrants to the US.
      It was during a discussion about low wages in the US and how one of the arguments by the Democrats / Left for open borders in the US is that Americans do not wish to do the low paid low skilled jobs. It was argued that, in the real America, vast numbers of ordinary Americans are doing low-skilled, low-paid jobs but that they are increasingly being pushed out of them by the endless numbers of migrants to the US.
      The Democrats / Left arguging that they need migrants because no American wants to do the jobs due to the low pay. The reality being that plenty of Americans do those jobs but are increasingly being driven out of them by migrants. You could certainly say that we have experienced similar here in the UK.
      I have theorised on here, and over on TOS, for some time that once we get sufficient numbers of people of migrant backgrounds in places like the Passport Office, the So-Called BBC, social housing, Councils, etc, that plenty of them will simply favour people of their own migrant and/or ethnic background peoples over the indigenous British. In other words, they will not share the same virtue signalling or guilt that so many indigenous British people do.
      So it is with interest that I see this - below - over on the Daily Mail. You do have to wonder how much of this kind of thing is going on and whether it is already occuring below the radar with sosome of the above-mentioned organisations.

      I am oft reminded of the line in Star Trek: Voyager when Captain Janeway decides to help the evil Borg to defeat a mutual enemy. Seven of Nine, a former Borg herself so who better to know the mindset of the Collective Hive Mind, refuses to help her by pointing out:
      "Your compassion will be your undoing."

      What for you constitutes being British? Other than having the passport, I mean......
      For me, it's a person born in the UK or who came to the UK very young and :-
      a) went through the UK education system and
      b) was encouraged by their parents or had their own strong wish to integrate (some people integrate more despite their parents being against this).
      Edit :- So I will definitely never be Swiss, despite perhaps being able to have the passport soon. But in my mind, my daughter will be.  In the mind of Swiss people, maybe, just maybe, her grandchildren might be considered Swiss!
