“I know what transgendered means and what the difference is. No I'm not confused. And until she completely becomes a woman biologically she is a man as she still makes testosterone which can be a deciding factor in sports. It's like having a man play basketball. I know women make their own testosterone, but men have a lot more. She was first a man before she became a woman, meaning she has more than the "normal" woman. I'm not confused. I knew what I was talking about. Thanks though.”

“Sorry, but your post indicated otherwise, selfinahikayu. And "normal" women become body builders and have the strength usually attributed to men - and not all of them inject testosterone. In fact, I used to work with one who did not use testosterone in any form and she was always in the top 5 in competitions, even won a couple.”

“I don't think she should play as she has testosterone that wasn't naturally hers. Let's look back at the female track runner at the Olympics a few years back, who's a honest to god hermaphrodite. Her ovaries were testicles and she produced natural testosterone. Still, good on this lady for wanting to coach still and keeping her head up. People need to get over the fact that gender and sex binaries are being broken as we discover more things about the human body and psyche than we ever did before. C'mon people. It's the 21 Century. Get with it.”

“Transgender people and hermaphrodites are usually two different things, selfinahikayu. She is a transgender, identifies herself as a woman and lives as a woman, and I know plenty of women who were born women but have the strength of men - and then there are the female body builders! And as she was born a man, she most certainly has her own testosterone - I think you are confused. However, you are absolutely correct - it's the 21st Century and it's about time we got rid of all the garbage regarding the LGBT population.”

“Wow. If that doesn't say, "I'm afraid of what everyone else is thinking," I don't know what does. If you truly didn't give a crap, you wouldn't have written this.”

“Aw yeah, adding in a little name calling makes your point more valid right? Lol, you're a joke.

While obesity is a problem and causes some diseases, you don't have to be fat to have diabetes. And scientists know a little about everything, when they go to college they're supposed to learn a little about everything just in case. Just because it might not be their area of study, doesn't mean they still can't help, and they DO still help.

Now, go run off somewhere "wildshaddowwolf" with your furry name.”

“Hopefully they continue to scratch, and find something that can take cancer down in one fell swoop.”

“That's great and all but when are they gonna find the cure to HIV/AIDS? And, you know, IMPORTANT THINGS?”

“it works against their best interest to CURE diseases like cancer and HIV/AIDS. these patients are on expensive medication for LIFE, don't you know. thats adds up to a lotta cash.”

“People not being able to function on a normal daily level with symptoms but no diagnosis is not important? People generally want to be productive and normal. If they have an illness that is dismissed as unimportant how can an attitude like that help them? We are talking about symptoms here that are dismissed as"women's diseases or mental health issues or just plain laziness" that are, in fact, real and as devastating as aides. Think about it. If someone wants to work and can't because they are ill and their complaints are dismissed what recourse do they have? While the is no cure for aides there are treatments that can restore the afflicted to normalcy. Wouldn't that be as beneficial to people who are struggling with undiagnosed illnesses?”

“if you read the article they said they are checking to see if it helps fight other diseases. plus that might not be their area of study. if everybody just worried about some and not others, wouldn't be saying the hell with other people. being over weight is the main cause of many diseases. diabetes kills many people every year. that is important fool.”

“Not only HIV. They have been researching cancer for over a hundred years and barely scratched the surface.”
