Kye Allums' recent coming out was incredibly well-received by most in the media. Of course, there are the occasional jerks like Michael Medved who have no interest in understanding and whose only objective is to be a raging asshole. Medved states in a blog post:
An insane level of political correctness recently dictated that George Washington University must accept a self-proclaimed man on the women’s basketball team. Kye Allums, a junior forward, “came out” recently as a transgendered male, and the team officially recognized her male identity as she awaits gender reassignment surgery. This absurd situation means either that the athletic officials inexplicably allow a man to play on a woman’s team, or else they don’t really consider Allums a man.
If male players said their essential nature was female, could they play on women’s teams? Separate competition for males and females recognizes the huge physical differences between the two genders—distinctions that remain even after hormone injections and genital surgery. The Allums example suggests that we take athletic competition too seriously to allow gender classification based on feelings alone.
You can contact Medved on his Web site. Not that it will help.
