I’m sure by now you’ve heard about Kye Allums, the transgendered ‘male’ who plays for the George Washington University women’s basketball team.
Allums, who changed her name from Kay-Kay to Kye, identifies as a man even though she has not had the sex reassignment surgery nor is she taking male hormones.
Under NCAA rules ‘he’ can continue to play for the women’s team because ‘he’ has not had the surgery and is not taking hormones.
So what we have here is a chick who looks like a chick — who still has all her functioning chick parts — but she wants to be called a man now. And she, excuse me, he plays for a woman’s team.
If that’s not confusing enough, Kye says “My teammates have embraced me as the big brother of the team. They have been my family, and I love them all.”
So all you have to do now is say you’re a man and that’s it?
Oprah Winfrey made this trend popular when she had that pregnant woman on her show calling herself a pregnant man.
I’m trying to be sensitive here, but I have a problem with a man choosing to play for a woman’s team. Why not try out for the men’s team? He/she can’t have it both ways.
