Transgender trailblazer Hannah Mouncey step aside, there is a new big swinging dick in the funny world of women’s football, which goes by the name of Mia, pictured above, foreground, blond, 53 year old, sort of smiling, wizened.
Mia has managed to get the manly nectar of testosterone down to some arbitrary acceptable level and been allowed to play for suburban club North Sunshine. Playing football in Melbourne’s north-west is not quite life endangering, but you do need to watch out for cocked fists, and Mia may have made a sound, safety conscious decision to genderbender switch to the more genteel women’s form. It’s possible.
He does seem to implicitly see a difference between himself and the other players:
They were concerned about my hurting women given my size and strength difference. But I fit within their criteria and am within their testosterone levels.
We could sperg out about how it doesn’t matter if his testosterone level was zero now, or how his body has had decades of testosterone juice flowing through it, crucially during puberty, which has strengthened his bones and muscles, or that even the scrawniest of men will have greater upper body strength than 99% of women, but we’ll get onto the real problem, which is not Mia, or Hannah, it is the people who promote this destructive dystopian nonsense, in this case NewsCorp columnist Susie (((O’Brien))) (getting tired of writing all these Irish names) who specialises in cheerleading for men in dresses, and men in girls’ toilets, and men in women’s prisons:
- Donald Trump’s push for narrow gender definition a step backwards, writes Susie O’Brien
- Girl Guides Victoria to allow boys who identify as girls to join
- New guide calls for non-binary approach at Australian schools
- Susie O’Brien: Scaremongers are skewing gender debate
- Why University of Melbourne must shut down No Conflict They Said website
The last one, and the most recent excepting our big bloke footballer here, Susie goes full Eternal Mick on, and wants to SHUT IT DOWN, and starts off things rather confusingly:
Women who only want to be with other women are coming into conflict with men who are turning into women.
Okey doke. It gets weirder though:
University of Melbourne Philosophy academic Holly Lawford-Smith, who started a website called No Conflict They Said, is offering a transphobic portrayal of transgender people as not real women.
She wants sex to be defined according to biology, not gender identity.
She is really getting her terminology mixed up here and shooting herself in the foot in the process. To spell it out: How else can sex be defined except by biology? She needs to stick to the “gender” word entirely, because that can be understood as an amorphous airy fairy social thing, as in how you present to the world.
With all this pimping of transthings, above all men in dresses, maybe it’s just that Susie hates women and girls. Or is just an airhead, or a keen jostler for woke status points. As she is a prominent figure who is tarted all over the place, across all of NewsCorp’s properties, and on tv, it’s very problematic and concerning.
