Fallon Fox responds to Bigots: I don't want to fight people who are scared of me. What Kind of Fight would that be?

Fallon Fox: “I don’t believe that a transgender fighter should have to disclose her personal medical history to other female fighters before they fight. Simply for the reason that the medical community and the scientific community has come to the consensus that post-operative transsexual fighters who have been on hormone replacement therapy and testosterone suppression, when they’re going from male to female, don’t have or haven’t been found to have any physiological advantages over other women. So, why should we have to disclose our personal medical history? There’s a lot of pain involved in having to disclose your post-transgender history, a lot of things that you might not want to disclose… so, I say no, I don’t think that we should have to disclose our information.”

Fallon Fox:“I do believe that it may deter some fighters from fighting me in the future. Some fighters have already said that they would not want to fight me. I think that’s because they’re scared, number one because I’m pretty good and, um, or they might just have a bias or they just might be a hate-filled person who doesn't want to touch me or whatever but, um, I don’t want to fight those people anyways because they’re scared and what kind of fight would that be? I want to fight someone who’s going to come after me aggressively and who wants to fight me and I want a good fight. That’s what I’m looking for in the future.”

I posted this article on the subreddit for MMA. The post has been down voted out of sight by bigots who claim there are no studies substantiating the claims by the trans community HRT levels the playing field for Male to female transgender athletes.

Ironically one of the commenter's said 'everyone' should read those reddit comments. He said that before I posted these studies. I wonder if he still wants 'everyone' to read it.

The bigots said "show me studies."

**You want actual studies? You got actual studies.**

>The Executive Board (EB) of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) confirmed the need to set up clear rules to determine the eligibility of female athletes with hyperandrogenism in female competitions, starting with the Olympic Games in London next year.

The IOC issued this press release IOC addresses eligibility of female athletes with hyperandrogenism

*hyperandrogenism* is a condition that produces abnormally high levels of testosterone in a cisgender woman resulting in what could be construed as 'unfair advantages". This condition is also associated with a transgender woman who has not undergone medical surgery and/or hormone replacement therapy(HRT).

>The International Olympic Committee (IOC) published the Stockholm Consensus Statement in 2003 (Appendix B) produced by a ad hoc (unbiased) committee. The requirement for transgender athletes to participate in the Olympics is that they have had "surgical anatomical change and hormone treatment for two years" as Fallon Fox has done.

AndNCAA policy the and studies supporting trans inclusive athletes

Yes you are a bigot is you summarily dismiss a transgender athlete claiming she has an 'unfair advantage' while purposefully ignoring scientific studies. That is an act based in bigotry.

Jones says she's going to win.

Not impressed with the transphobic announcer gleefully intentionally misgendering Fallon. Jones doesn't have the problem the idiot announcer has with understanding Fallon is a woman. Fallon, this sort of shit still happens to me at work after being their for two years if that's any consolation.
