Transgender's in Women's Pool League - 11-14-2019, 12:11 PM

I just joined a Women's Pool League only to find out that there are Two Transgenders that have been dominating the league for years. They take all the trophies and top prize money.

The league has been losing members since trans joined. I included. Trans team has even brought in a male sub stating that he was trans for the night. They are making a mockery of Women's pool and women themselves.

They have threatened to sue if they are removed. No attorney will touch the matter since laws have not been established. The women are afraid of speaking up due to bulling and threats by the transgenders.

This is not fair to Biological women who do not posses the physical attributes of the Y chromosome. If we, as women, are made to compete on the same team as men and transgenders, then no women will ever be able to stand a chance. If anyone can be a woman, then there will be no women left.

We must ensure that by extending the rights of one group we do not deny the rights of others. ~ Save Women's Sports!

Any tourney they enter should be entered by all the top men in the area. They all can claim they're tranny or woman for the night. This would even up the playing field some so the POS's don't win 'em all.

I see a simple solution. Establish fair handicaps. There are lots of such handicapping systems and you don't need to join a national organization to do it -- it can be all independent or in-house. No lawyers involved.

WOW! What a topic, seems straight forward and in my opinion I think that this is WRONG. Interested to see what other people think??

Only asking, do you think woman inherently don't play as well as males? If so can you say why?

In my league we have a Transgender female and yes she's the "Top" Female player, but still plays in the lower level handicaps. So she will win that plaque at the end of the season usually. I like Bob's idea about proper handicapping though. And generally think since Pool and Billiards aren't overly physically strength driven sports there should be such an issue (men vs women, watch Emily Duddy playing against male counterparts)...

This is the natural evolution of the progressive "all inclusive" ideology. Remember all those stories about girls playing little league? Or joining the Boy Scouts? Or joining the football team? All in the name of "you can't exclude me just because I'm a girl!"

I saw a man throw a wig on, tell the camera he identified as female, and proceeded to break the Australian dead lift world record for women. Now he wants his record officially acknowledged by the australian government.

IMO, we either need to go back to girl's and boy's both with unique and spectacular abilities and characteristics, or we just do away with separate sexes altogether. It's getting too complicated.

This League was only intended for Women, Most of the Women only want a night out on the town. If the Women want to become more competitive against Men then they can have the option of a Co-Ed team.

Trans saw a flaw in the system and are fully taking advantage of the situation. Once again: NO rules apply to this situation. By extending the rights of one group, we should not deny the rights of others

So why is it again that biological women are inherently worse at pool? I know in golf its long been accepted that the boobs get in the way but what is it with pool?

Here we go again.

On the plus side, it is humorous seeing the same people who chant "boys rule, girls drool" in the Battle of the Sexes threads chauvinistically come to the defense of women in this uncommon scenario.


Just saw this line:

"If anyone can be a woman, then there will be no women left."

LOL

I am concerned you are not telling the truth.

My concerns would be alleviated if you pointed out what specific women's league you play in.

Our league is genderless using Fargorate and all such issues evaporated.

I'll go a step further. If you can identify a womens pool league that has been dominated by transgender players for years as you say, then post the information here with specifics. Include a new poll with two options.

(1) What I originally claimed is substantially true
(2) What I originally claimed is substantially untrue

If option (1) wins after being up here for 24 hours, I'll apologize publicly and send you $100.

Every woman on the league who is opposed should just stop playing if the LO isn't willing to make it right
