'RuPaul's Drag Race' Star

CrossFit Is Wrong

No Balls = No Man

EXCLUSIVE

03-07-14-Carmen-vs-ChloieBalls make the man ... and lack of balls make the woman ... so says a former "RuPaul's Drag Race" star who claims CrossFit is being UNFAIR by not allowing a transgender woman to compete with the females.

TMZ Sports spoke with Carmen Carrera -- a transgender fashion model who was born a man. 

Carrera tells us ... Chloie Jonsson is getting the shaft (ironically) from CF, which stated transgender athletes are only allowed to compete in the CrossFit games under their birth gender. 

"When you remove your testicles ... that is it. You are no longer a male and you don’t produce testosterone," Carrera says. 

"You get weaker ... your whole body switches and it starts to reshape."

Carrera adds, "Put [Chloie] under the test and I bet her [testosterone] levels are the same as the rest of the competitors. Run some tests to make it fair."

As we reported, CrossFit says it will not take testosterone levels into consideration ... insisting it's the "genetic makeup" of a person who was born a male that "confers a physical and physiological advantage over women."

To that, Carmen says ... the person who put that statement together is "probably some loser sitting on some huge set of nuts with testosterone who doesn't know what he is talking about."

Your testicles aren't the only things to produce testosterone. Another one who failed biology. They are called adrenal glands.

Good riddance!    

And what if you had something like an accident or testicular cancer and they were removed? Would that make that person 'not a man', you idiot!

Everyone should live their life the way that makes them happy. The head doesn't always match the body. Going against all of society takes balls!

I don't need a test, I can see it clear as day with my own 2 eyes. This body is not the body of a women, it is the body of transgender. More power to her, but her right to be free from discrimination stops at competition. I support the right to do what you want but not at the expense of fairness to someone else.

no amount of surgeries, medications, and therapy in the world will ever change the fact that you were born a man/woman. at the end of the day, he's still a man. can't change DNA

"No balls = No Man"? Dude if that were true then there would be far less men in this world then there are now. In fact, the majority of men nowadays dont have any balls.

I cannot for the life of me figure why so many people spit their hate when a trans-person is mentioned. it's ok to have an opinion that she may or may not compete. Stop the hate there is enough violence against LGBT.

I'm all for equality and fairness, but in competitions separated by gender this is not a situation that is unfair to this person, if anything, it is unfair to the other competitors to force them to compete against a genetic male even if she identifies sexually as a female.

If you are Xy, XXY but with male sex organs, then you are male. Doesn't matter if you remove your testicles, and pump yourself full of estrogen Gender=/=Sex or biology. Your experiences in puberty are nothing like ours, you don't have ovaries, you don't get periods (honestly an advantage but you'll never understand our pain), you don't have a uterus, you can't give birth and can't even use the infertile excuse. In fact except for the reverse penis and lack of testeis, thy still have all of their internal se.x organs intact. If you want to go around and pretend your a girl or guy fine do what makes you happy but your still whatever sex you were born with. The idea that one's assumed gender identity should be recognized instead of actual se.x/biology is purely delusional talk and pure idiotic PC. These people should have been put through therapy from an early age so that they can be taught not to be disgusted by the very genitalia that they were born with, and to love themselves for who they are, and your PRIVATE PARTS/BIOLOGY ARE A PART OF WHO YOU ARE.

It doesn't matter how feminine she is, how they turned her penis inside out and denutted her, if she takes a blood test the genetics are going to come up with a Y chromosome. Nothing else matters because science is going to tell you every single time that she is a he. You can't change genetics. Sorry bitch.

They shake this up anyway they want. But born a man, you'll always be a man. You just can't shake that off no matter how you cut it.
