Transgender MMA Fighter

Joe Rogan
-- the voice of the UFC -- is taking a stand on transgender MMA fighter Fallon Fox ... saying  there's "no f**king way" she should be allowed to get in the ring with a natural woman.

Rogan unloaded on Fox during his podcast, "The Joe Rogan Experience" -- saying, "She calls herself a woman but ... I tend to disagree."

He continues, "She used to be a man ... but now she has had, she's a transgender which is (the) official term that means you've gone through it, right? And she wants to be able to fight women in MMA. I say no f**king way."

Joe Rogan

  • Great Point
  • Dead Wrong
"I say if you had a d*ck at one point in time, you also have all the bone structure that comes with having a d*ck. You have bigger hands, you have bigger shoulder joints. You're a f**king man. That's a man, OK?"

"I don't care if you don't have a d*ck any more," Rogan added ... "You're a man without a d*ck."

If it wants to fight in MMA it needs to fight men. Rogen is right. Bone structure and strength don't change after you get your penis chopped off and turned inside out.

Rogan is spot on but I bet the transgender community will make a stink about it and he'll have to issue an apology.

I really don't think he/she has a place in fighting anymore - unless it's with another transgender. I totally agree that even though he is now a she (nothing wrong with that) she still has the same strength, body (with the exception of breasts! lol) as a male - but I can't see a male actually wanting to "hurt" a female either. It's unfortunate but I think she needs to find a new profession - maybe work for the MMA in another capacity?

It should be left up to the the women who compete against each other to decide. No some arogant a**hole with a radio show.

There is a reason the Olympics lets transgender women compete as women in the Olympics. They lose whatever advantage was had from exposure to testosterone.

This has been seen in other sports, where the same complaints seen here have been made. Guess what, trans women generally have lost in sports. The advantage is in your head -- not reality.

You can tell that Rogan's reply to all this is based on bigotry rather than any sort of actual concern for fair play. Ignoring the Olympics is one thing, but going so far as to insult the woman, calling her a man, talking about her genitalia and more -- none of that was necessary.

I see there are plenty of other people here that enjoy hating on trans women as well (at least in their comments.) But science is not on your side,

Transsexuality is a congenital neurological intersex condition. There has been lots of study on the topic, as well as sex determination in general.

tl;dr: She is a woman. Bigotry is not a reason to stop her from competing. Trans women are allowed to compete in other sports and they have never been shown to have an advantage. End of story.
