oh wow I didn’t know any of this
but that’s mostly cuz I don’t rlly listen to Taylor haha
you’ve made a good point tho and I agree with you :)
i didn't even know about this. that's horrible. i love taylor but not when she gets political tbh. it cringes me.
0o0 wow this is rlly true in a way
I agree! congrats on 2k 💖🌿
2 FREAKING K AHHHHH THANK YOU I’LL BE POSTING MY 2K CELEBRATION SPEECH TOMORROW
2K: Sunday, Eighth of June, 2019, 10:56 PM
Wow I didn’t even know about this... congrats though crook cat!
I didn’t know about this, but I agree with everything you said. Even if a male is transgender, he/she is still built like a male. Females and males are both built differently and it gives males advantages in some aspects/vice versa. You are born male or female, and you can identify as part of the lgbtq+ community (I support)
i honestly wasn’t going to say anything when i read the title because i figured oh this is just another rant, whatever but this is kinda not okay. i do agree with you that it’s kinda unfair to let transgender females participate in female sports because like you said, males/transgender females are genetically stronger in sports. i understand that & how it is quite unfair. but you have to look at everything this equality act stands for. you cannot call her out without ALL of the facts. lgbtq+ people face hate crimes against them everyday. hèck, today i saw a story where two women who were dating were on a subway together were beaten by a gang because they wouldn’t kiss for the gang’s pleasure. do you not know how messed up that is? two innocent people got beaten because they were two people of the same gender who wouldn’t use their love as pleasure for someone else. i’m sure you’ve heard about lgbtq+ people not getting job offers, equal rights, or opportunities because of who they are in love with. that is absolutely messed up. they are people too. this equality act stands for the people who are kicked out of their apartments by homophobic/transphobic landlords, discrimination in their workplaces, homes, schools, & other public places. this is so that, by law, you CANNOT discriminate against people of the lgbtq+ community. it’s not only about sports. that’s not what’s important here. what’s important is people’s wellbeing & freedom in the USA. you should stop & think about that & see what is more important overall.
^^ 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻
I AGREE BUT I ALSO AGREE WITH ADDICTEDTOVOLLEYBALL
ofc no problem!! you deserve like 20000 tho 💗💗💗😘
wow that’s a good observation. I truly had no idea about this. thank you for bringing this up 💓
AND CONGRATULATIONS ON 2001 followers🥳🥳
congrats on 2k!!!
I have nothing to comment about this, BUT CONGRATS ON 2KKKKKK
Congrats on 2K!!!!!!!! 🥳
I completely agree with AddictedToVolleyball. This law does much more good than it does bad. It will not destroy people's hopes and dreams but protect those of LBGTQ+ who are constantly losing their freedoms. I understand transgender females may be more capable than biological females but it will certainly not make sports too unfair to compensate for not granting LBGTQ+ people's the rights they deserve. As a society I'm sure we can adapt sports to accommodate LBGTQ+ people as we have done with women and people of color as they gained the human rights they deserved. Also this is not something to pin on Taylor. I'm sure she considerably looked into the issue before taking her stance and that this issue was presented to her but she, unlike you, could see past this and not discriminate against LBGTQ+ peoples. I hope you can take your own advice and research into issues before you fixate on one issue of lesser importance.
I feel this issue should be spoken about and considered, but at the same time LBGTQ+ members are being discriminated against and without legal protection this will never stop. Also if this law passes our society might be able to solve this issue by creating different teams for trans people or creating regulations to make sports more fair, but this is only a possibility if laws like this one pass.
^^I'm sorry this was really aggressive. I'm just really passionate about this topic and sometimes I get a little carried away. Also congrats on 2K💕
I had no idea about this tbh but @clear-blue-water and @AddictedToVolleyball did make quite fair points💕anyway congrats on 2K
I agree with everything you said. you made a great point and I wish more people could see it this way also.
i think there’s good points on both sides. you have vital points and so does @AddictedToVolleyball. This act, though it comes with flaws and downsides, will eliminate many major discrimination issues ranging from beating, murder, and discrimination. I think all acts, even with good intentions, come with their fair share of flaws and “but then there’s this” negatives. But the overall impact of it will definitely benefit more than harm a colossal community and others outside of it. I’m not disagreeing with either side, I just believe a lot of acts with such a heavy impact in its promise will have an effect on many other issues or situations and such without meaning to hurt them in the process. gaining equality whilst keeping everyone happy and avoiding conflict, social or legal, is more difficult than it seems these days due to all the other factors that play in with smaller groups.
That being said I really really don’t disagree with you! you have a good point. but there’s also another very good point on the other point of view.
I’m agreeing w/ @GemQuotes here. both sides have good points. also I don’t think it’s a bad thing that you’re posting these, it’s good to see another opinion that has some pretty good points. I must say I’m quite neutral of this, and (@bio) I wouldn’t say this is hating. it’s just an opinion/ fact (like you said)
ah yeah, that’s absolutely true and okie but still, I don’t think this is hate
woah, I’ve not been catching up with this drama lmao😂, just ignore the haters, this is YOUR opinion on YOUR account, just do you.❤️
and btw congrats on 2000 you deserve it! x
Yes, religion and women’s rights are definitely being tested here. I agree. But LGBTQ+ rights are not the death of religious freedom. Yes, it is a definite conflict and something that many people are or will fight with. I’m not arguing with your points, you make good ones. But the salvation of biblical beliefs and reluctance of certain families to accept this or that at the expense of hundreds of oppressed and discriminated kids and adults is also another viewpoint I hold. I think everyone should be entitled to believe and think and hold true to what they want. I think every woman deserves the same rights as everyone else and every religious being deserves that as well. One shouldn’t be forced to do something that goes against what they choose to place their belief in, that is against their promised freedom. but we also promised freedom to LGBTQ+ members considering every American is supposed to have their freedom. Basically: until someone changes this, one group is going to have to lose at the expense of another’s win. No side of this is wrong, they’re all just opinions based on our own knowledge and personal viewpoints and mindsets. I’m sure they’ll find a compromise eventually if this act is passed as it is.
this world has been shaped without equality for as long as it’s been here. There has always been division between ages, sexualities, genders, and statuses. To try and bring equality built on divided people, it’s hard. Racism, homophobia, sexism, and so forth all are daily things wired into all of our brains. Trying to break that will definitely bring up a lot of issues concerning “what about this”. But those are issues that we will find compromises for as we go. Religious freedom will be tested, as well as women’s rights, men’s rights, LGBTQ+ rights, and etc. But compromises are present and agreements are here and people who fight for every group and the unity of all of them will get us there, like us and others. You make good points for your fight, and I’m sure an agreement will arise.
^Yass! She said it beautifully. I do agree that the Equality Act is flawed but I think this law will spark congress to look further into LBGTQ+ rights and perhaps create a better law.
yes it is 😂 and thank yoU
wanna collab?
Then I’m sure if the act violates such rights with such a great impact, the people and the government will definitely find a way to solve it and create a better, more fair act in its place. And, if the act IS passed, other laws, agreements, and changes will probably be made to accommodate and fix the issues such as the ones you name. Equality will not go happen without flaws arising with it, but the people will always stand up for the wrong points made in the process. Such as yourself. So I agree, but there are other ways to fix this whilst maintaining freedom for LGBTQ+ members, women, and religious people.
aww don’t be sorry, parents can be really hard on their kids without knowing what they’re doing. i have a very low self esteem too, and a big portion of it is bc my parents have such high standards ;w; just don’t let yourself forget that you’re more than what people expect of you, it can be pretty hard sometimes but it’ll get better when you don’t have school’s constant pressure on you all the time :)
im so confused by this act thingy
I agree with @AddictedToVolleyball. This law, as @clear-blue-water stated, does much more good than it does bad. The Equality Act is supposed to protect people of the LGBTQ+ family from discrimination. I understand that transgender females may be more capable than biological females, but will not make sports too unfair to compensate for not granting LGBTQ+ people’s rights they deserve. LGBTQ+ people are not getting job offers because of who they love or how they identify. Also this is not something to pin on Taylor. I’m certain she looked into the issue before writing a letter to the Tennessee senator. I sure while see was researching the sports issue came up, but she, unlike you, was able to see that overall the Equality Act will give LGBTQ+ peoples the human rights that they deserve.
@GemQuotes said it perfectly in her 2nd to last comment. I guess that's what I was trying to convey, but I got a little to harsh and aggressive.
I should not have accused your of not researching. I see now that you have put thought into this. Let's just accept that we both have different ideas and that we both were standing up for our beliefs.
I agree that @GemQuotes said it perfectly in her 2nd to last comment. I really sorry if my comment harsh and aggressive. I do not mean to make any drama on PC. I was just trying to state my beliefs. I can see that you thoroughly looked into the issue. If the law passes, just like any other law, there will be flaws to it. Human equality doesn’t just happen overnight. Can we just accept that we both have different ideas, and that we both are standing up for our beliefs. I hope that we can still be friends. 💖
DISCLAIMER: I don’t intend to come off as rude in any way! I just love a good debate.
Personally I have to somewhat disagree. Now, while I agree with the anatomy side of things, I feel as though it’s even more unfair to tell a transgender person that they can’t compete in their own competition group, because they were born in the wrong body. For example Caster Semenya was a South African athlete who despite , feeling, acting and overall living like a female, was told that she could no longer compete in the women’s heat, because she happened to be born with both genetalia. Transgender and Hermaphrodite people deserve rights too!
I totally agree that everything is about balance. Like any other law, it will have flaws, and they will need to adjust parts of the law.
I’m so glad we can still be friends! 💖
also, another part that i just read about, most (if they can afford these treatments) transgender females take certain things to help them become less masculine. transgender females can take things such as estrogen, antiandrogens, progestogens, etc. these induce feminization & suppress testosterone levels. biological males take estrogens to transition into female because these drugs are the major hormones of females. estrogens are responsible for the development of brèàsts, wide hips, & more. estrogens have antigonadotropic effects which are mainly responsible for the suppression of testosterone levels in transgender women. essentially, this means that if transgender females who have gone through these transitions & taken these medications will be able to participate in women’s sports equally. testosterone is found in men & is what makes them masculine; so if transgender women take these medicines that lower the testosterone levels & raise estrogen feminine levels, they will be able to participate in women’s sports because their energy, muscle, & strength will be the same. hopefully this changes your views because i did research this to prove that the equality act does in fact help ALL lgbtq+ people in america.
I do think the act will do a lot of good in terms of protecting lgbtq+ people's rights and protecting them in general from discrimination in places like jobs and housing. I believe that that's the main point of the act and the sports issue is a flaw that needs to be fixed. Nevertheless, the sports issue shouldn't discourage people to not support equality for lgbtq+ people. I agree with your view about the sports, how it's unfair for biological females to compete against biological males who identify as transgender but I just think you shouldn't discredit what the act is ultimately trying to do which is to stop discrimination against lgbtq+ people.
Re/ no problem! I do understand and respect your opinion on the topic because I do agree with it in some ways especially with the sports issue. Honestly I just think they should make a new category for transgender females to compete under. They're still being recognised as females and their competition would be other trans women so it would be fair. At least in this way, there's a very little chance that the system can be abused. Girls sports also wouldn't be annihilated in the long term.
long run
thank you for this post. I totally agree. I believe that there ONLY two genders and they should not be crossed/mixed like that.
also I don’t support the LGBTQ+ (dang, that’s alot of letters) community.
yeah. I’m just not sure how to treat ppl in the community bc I’m a Christian do I want to love them but also show them that what they are doing is wrong. and a lot of ppl think Christians just hate on ppl that don’t believe the same as us which is really frustrating cuz it’s not true at all.
^I agree. I hate being ridiculed for not supporting LGBTQ+ because I’m Christian
okay no offense but if we allow transgender people to play sports that’s not ruining anyone’s dream. if anything that’s only making more people’s dreams come true. also we are all human and by not allowing them to play sports you are discriminating. and no one playing these sports seems to have a problem with it anyways
okay I don’t want to start an argument so agree to disagree
whatever. I have my opinion and you have yours so let’s leave it at that
i think i politely disagree with your stance on trans people ruining the dreams of cis people.
ok you definitely make a lot of good points and i did some research on this topic. i think the part i disagree with the most is the people who think that men are just catfishing being trans to get into girls locker rooms or to just make some easy wins. i also disagree that people are disregarding that trans people who are FTM are also struggling in male sports because of their female bodies. i feel like having a separate trans sports group would be discriminatory in a sense to some people. i don’t really see a definite solution but i hate labeling it as biological girls getting their dreams crushed because trans girls finally being able to compete is making their dreams. i think this is all going to boil down to who’s more important to society- trans people or biological. i actually liked having this debate thing with you and you had a some great research 💕👌🏽
yes i agree with the part of influencers abusing their power, but what other ways is the equality act effecting society? i’m really interested in this topic now.
kk thanks i might message you again after our more stuff
oo this is very true
