Well I don’t hide behind anonymity. Never have. And I am very supportive of lgbt rights. But I do not believe, for any number of reasons, that a biological
male should be allowed to play contact sports against biological females. It is simply too dangerous. We’re heading down the road of huge lawsuits over head injuries etc. It’s been coming for years.
It is not hateful etc to suggest this. It is basic common sense.
I posted this yesterday and will again .
The level of the game means nothing . It’s played under the same rule book as the all Ireland senior final
Also your a na Fianna person and that’s your 5 th team but other clubs smaller clubs don’t treat that level with that disrespect by calling it social football .
This is an interesting take on this whole issue. Who are you or anyone else to assume that just because women are playing in a low division shield that few or any of them would object to a male born person playing against them ? That’s a hell of an assumption. Perhaps they don’t feel they can voice their concerns for fear of being labelled as hateful or transphobic .
Or maybe they will be assumed also to be these people below
It is not appropriate that a person can play Ladies football if that person was born as a biological male.
The idea that a player such as Brian Fenton could declare for the Dublin Ladies next season is beyond ridiculous. The fact that the games the person in the centre of this discussion is playing in a low level competition is irrelevant
My only issue with all of this is that I don’t like the idea of my daughter (who is eligible to play adult ladies football as a teenager), could be tackled and injured by someone with the genetics and physicality of a full grown man
NGA deserve great credit for what they are doing in providing a sporting organisation for the lgbtq community, and for that I have great respect
We’ve played them here as well, only in a social capacity. Great craic.
In real competitive football a 6ft 4" transwoman who has played a decent level of football as a male, would do serious damage in ladies football I would imagine. I think as you said there needs to be guidelines around this quickly.
