Am I the only one who thinks this is unfair for the competition? Love the barbwire tat on this dude/chick by the way...

hoke- to alter or manipulate so as to give a deceptively or superficially improved quality or value.
Here is the worst part of this article....
"Ludwig says her company's insurance paid the entire cost of the $30,000 gender reassignment surgery and $100,000 total hospital bill. "
"On 4th and inches I'll take the whiskey drinkers over the milk drinkers any day"
Women are equal to men so why would it be unfair?
Juwanna Man pulled it off without harming anyone.
Lots of insurance covers that if psychologists and psychiatrists deem it necessary.
Am I the only one that finds it stranger that he/she is 50 years old?
no. i find the fact that it had its cock and balls torn out to be stranger.
Now I'm no doctor, but I think the number of sex change operations in one day is greater than the number of 50-year-olds that have ever played college basketball.
On hormone therapy? Not unfair.

Wow that was one long ass article that I didn't want to read. But I did search the word "dunk" because after all that is what we all want to know.
Apparently he could dunk like a mad man when he was a he, but the article only says that teammates are amazed that she could dunk as a young man, so I guess we're supposed to infer that she can't dunk now.
Wouldn't hormone therapy for a trans sexual do just the opposite (well, male to female ones). If he/she didn't undergo hormone therapy to make him/her more like a woman then the eunuch (let's just go with that, because that is what he is) would still have a high level of male hormones that would promote better strength building.
Do you really want pics of this? I think this thread is better without pics. Find the pics yourself if you are so interested

You play sports as the sex you were born as. Sorry, this is a clear competitive advantage.
Your average UofM fan and I have something in common, neither of us went to UofM. Though we do share One major difference, I got Accepted.
Thought it was a different player. I'm dumb (a few years ago there was a female to male player, thought this was the same one without reading the article).
Good for her. It's nice to see that's she's been accepted in the community and can now live a normal life of her choice.
But fewer sex-change patients than 50 year olds.

Marriages are hard enough without a husband's boobs.
A guy I work with wants to know what they do with the dongs after the surgery. Just PM me the info, and I'll let him know.
Like I said, it's for a friend. Me? No, I don't care. Just trying to help someone out, that's all.
This deserves its own thread.
This. I think her age negates any potential competitive advantage, especially if she hasn't played in 30 years. Plus, it's juco ball--she's not trying to make a career out of it; she just wants to have fun. If her teammates -- and opponents -- have accepted her, and she's happy, then I don't see how it's an issue.

I think the concern comes from trying to establish a standard rule to follow. Obviously you want a person to be happy and life the life as they see fit, but what happens when a 20 year old star decides to undergo the same change? Is it still fair. The only grapes to grapes fact is they both underwent a sex change. Claiming that age or years separated from the game are valid reasons get much more difficult because it's all somewhat subjective. Are they now forced to hold tryouts to determine if that person is too good?
