Grown Man Beats Girls At Skateboarding Because We Live In An Episode of 'South Park' Now
Making a mockery of women's sports
Shiloh Catori, a 13 year-old girl, was denied first prize in a women’s skateboarding competition recently when a 29 year-old man was allowed to compete.
Richard Batres, a “divorced, ex-Navy father-of-three who was rejected from the women's Olympic qualifiers last year because [his] testosterone levels were too high,” took the $500 top prize under his new name, “Ricci And Tres.”
Perhaps anticipating the ostracism and abuse that invariably come to female athletes standing up for themselves against “gender identity,” Shiloh did not complain.
In an interview last year, “Ricci And Tres” said that “I've decided that I like being pretty and cute. So everything that goes with that is female. I love female bodies. I think it's a work of art.”
‘I know I will never be a woman, because women are miraculous, they have babies and create life and do all that awesome stuff. I'll never have that ability but I feel like I am a woman.
‘I would have wished to be born one so I'll try to fill that image as much as I can for myself and that pretty much involves being as cute as can be,' she said.
Get that? “Ricci And Tres” is allowed to cheat girls out of their skateboarding competitions because he feels cute when he does it. He knows that he is not a real woman, but he just feels like one when he trounces them in skating competitions. This is male entitlement and narcissism speaking:
Ricci told USA Skateboarding's Robert Brink that she does not think she - or any other transgender athlete - should have to take more hormones to meet gender category requirements because it 'mutilates' their bodies.
'You can't ask an elite professional athlete to compromise their health. Besides the fact that I've explained transitioning as a sense of enlightenment has nothing to do with your testosterone level. It's a matter of decision and feelings. And you've finally decided to be you,' she said.
Everything that Genderists demand we do to children would be “mutilation” if we did it to “Ricci And Tres.” He has decided that he feels this way, and anyone who would deny him what he wants is just a bigot. He is sure of this because he is enlightened. A higher being, basically.
You women are beautiful creatures, but he is Homo superior on the interior, see? Even the Daily Mail gets it, why they even use his preferred pronouns just to make it easy for us to know what is really going on. Such is the power of woke policy capture over press standards organizations. Hooray, gender equality!
Someone please explain to me the difference between a man cheating at sports and a man cheating at sports for art. Andy Kaufman killed this joke ages ago, it should stay dead with him.
To that end, we are starting this new project with a principled stand against “preferred pronouns” when writing about sports stories, among other kinds of news commentary. They make exactly as much sense in a discussion of assigned sports categories as an athlete’s preferred pets or favorite poets.

In the beginning, there were no sports for women because they had the “wrong bodies” for that sort of thing. But Satan conspired to create a sex-based Title IX category that excluded vulnerable trans women. “O heaven!” They cried. “Hear our despair.” Then an angel of enlightenment came down to a transphobic world looking fabulous and said: O ye of little faith! Know ye not my pronouns? Validate me, and repent! — The Book of Gendersis 1:1-4
