Much has been made of male-to-female transgender athlete Fallon Fox’s participation in women's MMA, but the CFA fighter says she is actually at a disadvantage to her opposition.

Yeah, I can see how overpowering and punching those other women into unconsciousness is putting you at a huge disadvantage.

I never knew all that about dropping testosterone levels and osteoporosis. This is weird. It's almost like I want him/her to prove s/he is not physically stronger than most women.

What are the rules for other women sports on this issue?
Do they allow former men to play in the WNBA?

Haha, and the doctor they found to defend Fox's side is also a transgender. Go figure.
