“That part of the post wasn't about people legitimately grunting because what they're lifting is heavy.
It's about the people who go out of their way to put effort into a grunt simply to to announce to the general area that they're lifting something. Whether it's five or fifty pounds, they're grunting like they've just lifted the god damned titanic.

I wish there weren't actually people like that.”

“Maybe your mind needs you to focus on what you're doing in order to be any good at it.

MY mind can push my body to the limit I want it to go(because going to my body's absolute limit would be exceedingly dumb) and still be able to wander and get bored, so I watch tv while exercising.

Also MAYYBE they don't have the same workout goals as you. Maybe they want to be able to train up for long-distance cardio instead of 20-30 minute bursts.”

“Curvy girls and disabled girls have their own pageants, yes. BUT they aren't BANNED from the miss universe one either. Saying saying it's astronomically unlikely that they'd be chosen to compete, and saying that they're rule-banned from the competition are -not- the same thing.

Your friends changes were brought about by -hormones-. The same hormones the other women competing were lucky enough to be born with (well, most of them).

Well, if you ban trans women because they had artificial hormones, let's go down the list of who else needs to be banned?
Women who had to have hysterectomies? They're right out.
Any other disease which requires HRT? Gone.
Oh yeah, any woman who have ever been on the pill are completely out too, plenty of artificial sex hormones in those.

I agree, it's not homophobia.
It's transphobia, and you're oozing it.”

Sahra86 on Nov 22, 2013 at 17:43:42

“Like really??!!

Curvy girls and disabled girls do not even try for Miss Universe because they have their own pageants and know that,they do not fit the requirements to participate.
Now if they did try,they will probably get rejected too and like with this situation some people might outcry for justice saying that it's not fair to be banned based on weight or disability.But again life it's not fair and Miss Universe is not about inner beauty but simply about external beauty and body image.

As for the hormones part, a simple Google search would have let you known that most people who have to go under HRT have diseases that would exclude their participation either cause they have physical manifestations of the diseases either cause they are in menopause or sex-offenders. The only exceptions are Hormone replacement therapy,Hormone Therapy for Cancer and Hormone Therapy for Hypothyroidism.The things is there are tons of all kind of hormones around matter of fact not all of them are sex hormones, and only two you can compare are HRT and HTC. Because both act on Progestogens,Androgens and Estrogens but then again the quantity and the other elements differ from each other.That's why although both therapies involve hormones of the same kind they have different names and effects on the body.
Ditto for the pill.
So the answer your question: people who went under hormone therapy to cure cancer should not be banned from MU”

“"I fully support the rights of the LGBT Community!

Now let me detail why I really don't!"

That about it?”

Sahra86 on Nov 18, 2013 at 18:42:15

“That's why I hate the internet, people think they really get to know you and poorly psychoanalyze you based only on a comment that you made.

You do not know me, you might not agree with my opinion but we live in a free world you are allowed that.But did you really need to make fun of it instead of giving your personal input to the discussion or a counter reasoning?

Let me enlighten you about my support to Community:
it started in middle school when i fell in love with my best friend and we started to ditch it, to go 2 hours by bus to the bigger City next ours so that we could hang out free in the gay area and help out in the ArciGay Center; it flourished in high school when I came out to my Islamic parents and founded the first support group for gay teens in my area; it skyrocketed at the University where I met my partner and became involved with her with organizing buses for the National Gay Pride.
My Love and Support for the LGBT Community is still beating and still strong but has not annihilated my rational thinking which deems absurd that women who had gone under hormone therapy and women who didn't, have to compete in the same category.
Let's be realistic and try to not see homophobia everywhere!”

Lex Moran-Solero on Nov 8, 2013 at 10:26:25

“I don't doubt that's the case for you, but it's not the case for all trans people. Personally, I don't feel there's anything physically or mentally wrong with me and all my own dysphoria comes from a misinformed and unaccepting society, but nothing is universal in the trans world. My point above is that there are people trying to find a biological cause or reason why trans people or gay people exist so that they can eliminate any so-called trans or gay "gene" - and if they can find a chromosome that indicates a fetus will be gay or trans they would not hesitate to abort. That's the kind of thinking that I find dangerous.”

“"Once there, the officer ordered her to perform oral sex, and she complied “out of fear for her physical safety,” according to the complaint. Then, allegedly, he raped her."

No, it's not "then..he raped her".
Someone using a position of power to force you to perform a sexual act is rape.
The rape started with the breast groping or the oral sex, depending on whether the regions legal definition of groping is rape or sexual assault.
Regardless, it's "Then, he continued to rape her"”
