This is a joke right. The article reads like this: some dude wants $2.5 million dollars because he chopped off his wiener? He/she/it claims “discrimination, intentional infliction of emotional distress and unfair competition” in a lawsuit filed this past Thursday.
I’ll touch on all 3 claims.
- Discrimination – I don’t know what went on to make this guy think he was discriminated against but I have to assume the only discrimination is that he feels like he should be allowed to compete against women because he believes himself to be a woman. That’s not discrimination bro, that’s common sense. People born with penises compete against each other and people born with vaginas compete against each other. This for a reason.. and no that reason is not to offend or discriminate against you. Get over yourself. I’ll add that it is possible that actual discrimination took place but theres no humor in that so I won’t go into it.
- Intentional infliction of emotional distress - This has to mean intentional infliction of emotional distress on himself right? No one did this to him.. he did it to himself. I think people that get the ol’ hotdog-swap procedure are hilarious and don’t try n tell me it’s wrong to make fun of people for that sort of thing. If you dress like a woman people will stare at you and talk about you. Anytime you do anything to attract attention to yourself people are going to stare and talk about it. I really, really hope this dude didn’t try to work in anything about being gay because this has zero anything to do with that. This has to do with some deranged, psychopath chopping off his clam hammer and pretending to be a woman. I’m totally for people having the right to do this to themselves but don’t try n tell me you’re a woman. You’re a dude and you know it. I’m even okay with you “identifying” as a woman, but in no way should you be able to compete as a female athlete.
- Unfair competition – Okay bro, at this point you’re just not understanding. The unfair part is that you are a man (which means superior strength/athleticism) so it’s not fair that you compete against women. Go ahead and act like you’re a woman and do all woman things, but no way do you get to win medals for beating women.
My solution: CrossFit says “sorry, but you have to compete against men because that’s what you are”. Or shit, let the dude compete with the women but don’t let him get a medal. And then prescribe this guy some heavy psychotherapy to bring him back to reality.
Final thought: I sort of hope this guy wins and gets to compete with women, but then he just gets slammed and annihilated by the competition. Also.. take a look at the “chick” on the left and tell me that’s not a man.
