Welcome to 2021, where we've "progressed" to the point where we allow biological males to punch the crud out of women on stage:
Alana McLaughlin, the second openly transgender woman [sic] to compete in MMA in the United States, won her [sic] debut Friday night via submission at the Combate Global prelims in Miami, Fla.
The 38-year-old used a rear-naked choke against Celine Provost to end the match 3 minutes, 32 seconds into the second round.
Yep, less than 4 minutes.
Here's what that looked like:
McLaughlin, who began her [sic] gender transition after leaving the U.S. Army Special Forces in 2010, said she [sic] hopes to be a pioneer for transgender athletes in combat sports.
Men punching and choking women senselessly isn't "pioneering" anything.
BTW, this was Special Forces buff McLaughlin before deciding to live as a woman:
Our culture is so screwed up.
McLaughlin began training a year ago and was cleared to fight by the Florida State Boxing Commission after having her [sic] hormone levels tested, according to ESPN.
Everyone knows that unnaturally lowering your hormone levels to handicap yourself totally levels the playing field. It's not like every one of McLaughlin's 7 trillion cells is coded with an XY chromosome that‘s wired for larger lung, cardio, skeletal, and muscle mass, or that decades of testosterone before "transitioning" gives a major edge over female opponents.
We aren't allowed to talk about such things, just like we aren't supposed to call him a "he."
She [sic] said it was a "nightmare" finding an opponent.
"I have nothing but respect for [Provost]," McLaughlin said.
I'm sure he will go on to prove his respect for women by pulverizing as many as possible until only trans fighters (AKA biological dudes) are left in the sport.
Here's to our soon-to-be clown future without women!
