Cheating women. Never a winner in my opinion, always a loser. Any monetary gains from this is fraud.

"Can I have some juice with my Coke?" Mental illness. And it was encouraged by the parents! I didn't like the changes that happened to my body throughout puberty either, but it was what it was, and pretending to be anything else was/is childish and shows signs of deep mental issues.

There should be a separate sports category for trans women. Then it would be fair.

Real women should fight and sue to get transexuals females banned from competing in women's sports. Chiloe Anderson is a selfish person who knows that he/she in sports dominates the real females. Fine he decided that he wants to be a female, but that does not give he/she a right to take away sports from real females. What Chiloe is doing is misogynist. The mother could careless that her child is destroying female sports.

Your a dude, you pathetic cheater..!!
I'm FtM, and I think it's fine for trans females to compete in certain sports, but in most sports, it is an unfair advantage for a bio male, regardless of how they identify, to compete with bio females. Unless they had been on estrogen since before puberty or blockers and then estrogen, it completely goes against the point of gendered events.

“UCSC is a very liberal campus" says the UCSC Volleyball player. What's liberal about a biological Female losing her place on the team to a biological Male. This is twisted and not liberal at all.

Even tho you said it in kind of a rude way, it is the sad truth. Even if she took as many hormone pills as she wanted and stitched as much stuff onto her body, she still has the physical body mass of a biological male. The talking about power and tallness in the video, it comes from her being biologically and genetically a male still despite what the outside shows.

Mark my words; one day the IOC and their media partner the Olympic Channel are going to regret hyping this unscientific cult madness. The Emperor's New Clothes writ large upon the public - except the public can see, and the IOC are the ones blinded by their cowardice.

Not good enough to compete against men so you stuff a bra, grow long hair, shave, take a few pills and go bully girls. What a joke!!!
21elkaholic (2 months ago)
I definitely agree you shouldn't be playing competitive sports with other women!! genetically you're a man like it or not, you may feel like a women, you may act like a women but the truth is no matter how much hormones you take you can't fully 110% change your body

Trans female that began with hormones at pre-puberty don't have biological advantage over female borned female because almost all of the differences between men and women haven't even developped yet. Race is a bigger factor in a case like that in some sports like running.

The concept of a biological man competing with women is appalling. Want to transition, transition but competing with women is unfair to biological women. The other way around (women transitioning into men) is OK . I think that is selfish of "her."

I love how they say there is no advantage then they immediately say that when they took hormones they started losing muscle mass. I mean imaging having that chemical makeup for your entire life instead of just a few months. Literally contradicted himself.
bisdakdiay (3 months ago)
Their hormones are not comparable. Trans testosterone will always be 3x higher than the female’s upper limit. They are still dudes in that respect Even though they are already taking estrogen hormones and that they are feeling more feminine. DNA never lies Chomosomes will never change. They are not women and it is not fair to women if they are to compete in same category. We must separate them Let transwomen fight transwomen I am not transphobic, i am realistic! Science will not lie!
BasicallySalty (3 months ago)
So, although yes her bone mass is different to biological females’, her position in volleyball also very much determines wether it is unfair or not. If she is a setter, all she’s doing is setting, and bumping to another team member, for them to attack. If she’s a libero, all she’s going to be doing is saving the ball, and being defensive. If she’s an attacker, then yes that’s where she’ll be at an advantage since as an attacker, you have to spike the ball as hard as you possibly can, so that the opposite team cannot hit it. If she’s a setter, her power really won’t matter, and she’ll be hitting the ball about 4-6 times every 3 mins. If she’s a libero, she’ll only be hitting the ball to other teammates and saving it, 7-9 hits every 3 mins. If she’s an attacker, she’ll be spiking the ball down, 8-10 times every 3 mins. I feel as if they should allow her to play, but put her on a more defensive role, such as libero. I’m a cis female, I’m on my school’s team and I’m an attacker, I wouldn’t mind if I went against a trans female, but that’s just my opinion.

His wish was always to be a girl, good luck to him. What about all the little girls who grew up with wishes of playing their chosen sport to the best of their ability against other woman just to have knacker bags decide he wants to play as well. Living your dream is one thing destroying other's dream is pathetic.

A man and woman can weigh the same, have the same amount of muscle mass, bone structure, workout routine, eating habits, sleeping habits, and the man will always come out on top. Men hunted for a while the women gathered and managed the children for a reason(yeah some cultures it’s opposite), men are have denser bone structure, stronger endurance, less body fat, more muscle mass, etc. heck men recover and gain muscle faster vs women. Let’s be real America. Put this guy in the same category as men I can bet you he won’t be at the top
Your wish to be a girl has nothing to do with your inability to be one. I wish to be a dinosaur

A soon as I seen California that was all I needed to see. What a way to pump up your confidence go dominate a female sport.

It's not even about hormones!! Men are born with more muscle mass, lung capacity, blood volume, and bone density. It doesn't matter if estrogen is levels are close to biological females, that can not reverse the cellular make up that has already been put in to place! This whole thing is completely insane, and is a low blow to women and girls in sports!

Katy Kennefick (8 months ago)
these comments honestly made me sick. if you feel so threatened at the chance that this trans woman could be better at volleyball than you, do like you would do if she were a cis woman and work harder to improve yourself instead of complaining. chloe is taking hormones that literally take away the natural muscle cis men are born with. its very obvious a lot of people hating in the comments are transphobic. hate always steams from fear and selfishness. why cant you just be happy for chloe and her journey to success through endless amounts of struggles that cis people will truly never understand.
slawero (7 months ago)
And your comment made me cringe. She is not a cis woman so they don't need to pretend she is. The difference in muscle mass between men and women is observed after puberty not at birth. Do you even know what you're talking about? The hormones may make her weaker but you can't claim they will make her lose all the biological advantage that men have over women in sport. It hasn't been studied so you don't know that. If you find speaking out against potential injustice transphobic, then you misuse the words. Don't forget that thousands of female athletes who work as hard as Chloe. Your comment is so wrong on so many levels...
