Beating Up Women in the Name of Equality


By Steve Deace

According to the Florida State Boxing Commission, Fallon Fox may be a fraud. But I think Fallon Fox is a trailblazer and a hero.

The 37-year old Fox is a transgendered MMA fighter who underwent a sex change operation back in 2006. Now believing he’s a woman and not the man God created him to be, he’s taken to beating up women for sport. After knocking out a woman in just 39 seconds in his last fight, the Florida State Boxing Commission launched an investigation into the legitimacy of his transgenderedness because Fox is now 5-0, and he’s won all of his bouts in the first round.

I say shame on the Florida State Boxing Commission and will heap praise upon Fox, for he is only taking the brave, new world we’re ushering in to its most logical conclusion. If gender doesn’t matter, and equality is defined as each gender is capable of doing exactly everything the other can do, then whether Fox is truly transgendered or not shouldn’t matter. In fact, he shouldn’t even have to think he’s a woman now to play “here comes the boom” in the octagon with women. He ought to be able to beat them up just as much as he would his fellow man.

MMA is not a conscripted occupation. Women volunteer for this. If women can now volunteer to be raped, disemboweled, and decapitated by the enemy on the front lines in combat in the name of equality, then why can’t they get pummeled by equally evolved male primates in MMA?

Oh sure, the women Fox bludgeoned in his personal pain cave didn’t know they were dealing with a man at birth, so perhaps you feel I’m mixing apples and oranges here. But if that’s what you think, then you’re discriminating against Fox. Why shouldn’t he have equal access in MMA? Why should his access be restricted to just his own kind? If you think that, then you’re probably one of those troglodytes who still believe people should be restricted to only marrying someone of the opposite sex as well.

And if the women can’t handle it, then Fox is only providing a real-life demonstration of natural selection. He is the very embodiment of survival of the fittest where only the strong and those willing to adapt survive. Fox is so willing to adapt, he tried changing his own genitalia. It doesn’t get much more devoted than that.

Even the People’s Progressive Republic of California is being intolerant of Fox’s quest for self-actualization by holding up his license to fight there. This is the same state that wants to criminalize those who help folks struggling with same-sex attraction return to heterosexuality, and now they’re denying Fox’s path to inclusion? That doesn’t sound like diversity to me.

If you’re an average golfer on the PGA Tour, why not join the LPGA and clean up? Furthermore, why do we even have a LPGA Tour at all? I thought gender was irrelevant and we were all capable of doing the exact same things. Remember when Billie Jean King in the prime of her career beat 55-year old Bobby Riggs in professional tennis’ battle of the sexes? Who doesn’t want to see Serena Williams likewise clean Roger Federer’s clock nowadays? I’m sure she could.

I’m so confused. Kind of like Fox.

    “Who doesn’t want to see Serena Williams likewise clean Roger Federer’s clock nowadays?”
    I could care less. And I could care less about a dude who had a surgery and became a girl and likes to fight other girls. I don’t watch MMA, and my daughters probably will never become mixed martial arts fighters. Way too much time is spent consternating over stuff like this. We have a budget deficit that is raging out of control. Our government is bloated beyond belief, and our rights are getting stripped at every turn – and more people vote for American Idol and pay attention to this sensationalistic stupid stuff like transgendered MMA fighters than do elections. Stories like this take the attention away from the real issues effecting Americans. The majority of Americans want the government out of our personal lives and to mind their own business. So it’s up to the RINOs – – do you stand for civil liberties and pursuit of happiness, or do you support an over bearing government putting a morality camera in every bedroom in America, controlling what people eat, smoke, drink…. The youth of this country, and the majority of free thinking people support privacy, freedom, liberty, and believe it is none of our or the governments darn business how people conduct their lives.

      If you think it is all unrelated, you haven’t been paying attention.

      All of our problems come from the same problem; people want to decide what is right or wrong and if you stand up for any sort of notion like absolute truth (let alone the principles the United States government was both founded upon and designed to function with), you’re just a “hater”. This is just the latest symptom, but symptoms of a disease serve to alert us to it existing, right?

      Fallon Fox is a man who has had surgery to pass for a woman physically. If you don’t believe in metaphysical concepts like “soul” and “spirit”, even then the so-called “transgender” process STILL falls short. His DNA is still male and he was still raised “male” (for what that is worth). His body is that of man, just mutilated to pass for female. This kind of arbitrary redefinition based on perceived “true state” should logically apply to any alteration, or at least alteration that can be reasonably found naturally.

      Why should any athlete be excluded from participation due to similar chemical and surgical alteration? If a “woman” can be born trapped in the body of a “man”, isn’t it even MORE likely that a true athlete, ripped with muscles can be born in the body of someones in a less impressive state? Be you scrawny or bearing a lot of fat, why can you not employ the drug treatments that would help you buff up quickly? There are negative side effects, but that is true of the “transgender” procedures as well.

      Men and women are physically different, and that is why in sports they are usually separated; the nature of the male body gives us an inherent advantage. I am hardly on expert on the procedure, but besides DNA remaining the same, your body knows it is still male and is trying to produce the correct hormones. You have to take drugs to block this, and I would think fudging that can allow such a person to get the kind of boost a normal woman would have to turn to illegal substances to receive. There is also the nature of different muscle groups and how they have been built up over the years; I don’t think the surgery can destroy all of that.

      All this is before considering the greater implications that require more than just physiological considerations. Being born the wrong gender, aside from those born hermaphrodites, is something taken purely on faith (…unless there is proof the child was altered before birth). Looking at it logically, if you had a desktop computer meant for the usual activities (multi-media, word processor, etc.) with the programming for a microwave… you would get the software fixed, not refit the hardware to become a microwave oven.

      If people believe they can so blatantly ignore reality to do such a thing as this, and not only do it but do it brazenly and declare it right and good, what won’t they do with less messy matters like government?

        Speaking of people blatantly ignoring reality — I know some alcoholics in my family, and one in particular who is a mean drunk and very difficult to be around. He has gone beyond the party happy go lucky, social bar fly that he once was and the drinking is now giving him serious physical problems, and his behavior leads many of us to believe that he has pickled his brain. And when you bring up his alcoholism, he not only admits to being a drunk, he actually relishes the label. Drinking is accepted in this country, even celebrated in some places (hello Wisconsin). But I look at your final question and apply it to my druk relative – – “If people believe they can so blatantly ignore reality to do such a thing as this, and not only do it but do it brazenly and declare it right and good, what won’t they do with less messy matters like government?” I have learned from a friend who is a psychologist a simple truth that has given me great clarity in my life – – you can’t change people who don’t want to change. I can’t force my Uncle to quit drinking against his will, and those in Fallon Fox’s family who don’t agree with the sex change are helpless if Fallon doesn’t want to change. I see two options: 1) Banging my head against the wall and screaming at my relative, asking him “why don’t you change!”, or 2) Ignore him all together and live my own life according to my own design, until he asks me for help. I live a much more stress free life when I quit worrying about things I have no control over and concentrate on my own happiness, and helping those who ask for help.

          I realize I was rambling quite a bit, so let me take this as a chance to make the point again:

          We live in a culture where people can and will ignore reality, and will go out of their way to warp others perception of reality so they may indulge in what they will. We cannot ignore them; doing so is not only immoral, but dangerous to our own well being.

          It is the people wanting to pass the buck while ignoring reality that support the government intrusion, that crave the nanny state because they do not want to take care of themselves, and being used in propaganda to convince others that it needs to be that way. The same people that can ignore a man mutilating his body to pass for a women and then even cheer that man on in a violent sport where he is pummeling women are the same people that will ignore both law and history while enacting policy that appeals to their big government worldview.

          Not everyone who approves of one thing will approve of the other, but both reqiure the same disconnect and willingness to lie to one’s self about what is because of a preference for what isn’t. The symptoms of the diease matter, because it helps you identify what it is and how far it has progressed.
