McLaughlin, a biological male who was a member of the US Army Special Forces until 2010, wore a t-shirt which read "end trans genocide" as she was named the victor after choking Provost on the mat.

Veteran turned trans woman Alana McLaughlin beat a woman into submission in an MMA fight on Friday night at the Combate Global prelims in Miami, Fla.

McLaughlin, 38, used a rear-naked choke hold on Celine Provost, 32, bringing the fight against the biological female fighter to an end after 3 minutes, which was a mere 32 seconds into round two of the match. McLaughlin, a biological male who was a member of the US Army Special Forces until 2010, wore a t-shirt which read "end trans genocide" as she was named the victor after choking Provost on the mat, according to the New York Post.

For her part, Provost was able to land some punches in the first round before being bested by the biological male, who believes her fighting against biological women is part of a social justice campaign.

McLaughlin praised the efforts of Fallon Fox, a biological male who identifies as transgender and has also made a career beating up women in front of an audience. Fox, who twice broke a woman's skull in the ring, was once named the "bravest athlete in history."

It is Fox that McLaughlin seeks to emulate. McLaughlin said "I want to pick up the mantle that Fallon put down."

"Right now, I'm following in Fallon's footsteps. I'm just another step along the way and it's my great hope that there are more to follow behind me," McLaughlin told Outsports before the match. Fox was present at the match, and was last inside the ring in 2014.

Biological male Fox, who identifies as transgender and is also a veteran of the US military, destroyed Erika Newsome in an MMA fight during which, as it was described:

Fox "secured a grip on Newsome's head… With her hands gripping the back of Newsome's skull, she delivered a massive knee, bringing her leg up while pulling her opponent's head down. The blow landed on Newsome's chin and dropped her, unconscious, face-first on the mat." That was Newsome's last pro fight.

McLaughlin was able to fight against women after she was cleared by the Florida State Boxing Commission and had reduced her natal, male testosterone levels to an acceptable level. McLaughlin experienced both puberty and adulthood as a male.

McLaughlin said that it was a "nightmare" finding an opponent, and had "nothing but respect" for the opponent, Provost, who was willing to end the ring only to suffer a gruesome defeat. Provost has recently recovered from COVID-19.

McLaughlin wants to see way more biological males who identify as transgender beating up women in paid fights. "If we want to see more trans athletes, if we want to see more opportunities for trans kids, we're going to have to work out way into those spaces and make it happen," McLaughlin said. "It's time for trans folks to be in sports and be more normalized."

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed a bill to bar transgender athletes from competing in sporting events that align with their gender identity rather than their biological sex. However, it was just for students.

"In Florida, girls are going to play girl's sports, and boys are going to play boy's sports. Thats what we're doing, and we're going to make sure that's the reality," DeSantis said.

"Athletic teams or sports that are designated for females are open to females, and we're going off biology, not ideology when we're doing sports," said DeSantis about how the bill was written.

"The bill defines a student’s biological sex based on the student’s official birth certificate at the time of birth," DeSantis said, "and as part of the bill we're signing today, we're not only making sure that women have opportunities for scholarships and competition at the highest level, we're also putting in statute ways to actually vindicate the rights of any women athletes who may be discriminated against."

The MMA policy on transgender athletes reads that while "it is not a requirement for the athlete to undergo complete gender assignment surgery," medical documentation would need to be provided "of the relevant surgeries and procedures she underwent during transition."

A biological male fighter who identifies as transgender and wants to fight women would also need to provide "detailed paperwork from a board certified endocrinologist or internist showing that she underwent hormone therapy for a minimum of two years following a gonadectomy and the levels have been within acceptable range for a female."

Association of Boxing Commissions issued guidelines in 2012 that "require proof of at least two years of hormone therapy before a trans woman can compete against women."

Even after two years of testosterone suppression, biological males retain vastly higher testosterone levels than are present in biological women, or than are within range for women.

President Joe Biden issued an executive order on his first day in office, mandating that any schools that receive federal funding must function as if biological males who claim to be females are the same, and vice versa, or risk losing that funding. This pro-transgender policy extends to male athletes who claim their gender identity as a female should allow them to compete on women’s teams, receive women’s scholarships, and be admitted in women’s locker rooms.

“Children should be able to learn without worrying about whether they will be denied access to the restroom, the locker room, or school sports,” the executive order reads, promising that the Biden administration is committed to “prevent and combat discrimination on the basis of gender identity or sexual orientation.”

Biden previously promised to pioneer a radical transgender agenda, telling the mother of an 8-year-old, gender-confused child at a town hall that he would “flat-out change the law” and eliminate former President Donald Trump’s executive orders concerning sex and gender identity. His pledge received support and encouragement from now-Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer.

“Joe Biden said that on his first day of office, he will give transgender students access to sports, bathrooms, and locker rooms in accordance with their gender identity in all federally funded schools. Do you think he has the ability to do this, and do you agree with his decision?” a reporter asked Schumer.

“I agree with the decision, and I know he’ll check things out thoroughly, legally,” Schumer said.

During his campaign, Biden also vowed to use the Department of Education to investigate and address any violations of transgender students’ civil rights, including removing federal school funding or risking legal action. His new executive order also mandates that every agency must act to ensure the enforcement of this new rule within 100 days of Jan. 20.

Under Trump, the Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights found that a Connecticut policy that allowed biologically male student-athletes who identify as female to participate in female sports violated Title IX. Democrat Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii introduced legislation in the House in December that prevents biological men from participating in female sports.

Twenty states are working to block President Joe Biden’s transgender mandate tied to schools, which effectively allows biological boys who identify as female to compete in girls sports and for transgender youths to use locker room and bathroom facilities in accordance with their preferred “gender identity” as opposed to their biological sex, among other issues.

On Monday, a coalition of 20 states sued the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the Department of Education (DOE) over the mandate, with Tennessee Attorney General Herbert Slatery leading the way.

Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, and West Virginia have joined the lawsuit.

Slatery argued in a statement that “this case is about two federal agencies changing law, which is Congress’ exclusive prerogative.”

Fox News reported:
The DOE and EEOC had issued guidance stating that, based on the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Bostock v. Clayton County, which said employers cannot terminate workers because of their gender identity or sexuality, that not recognizing a person’s gender identity would also constitute actionable discrimination under Title VII.

The lawsuit argues that Bostock was a “narrow decision” that was limited to employment termination and “did not address the myriad other forms of alleged discrimination” the agencies identified as prohibited discrimination under Title VII, like sex-segregated bathrooms and sports teams.

The guidance, the lawsuit argues, “purports to resolve highly controversial and localized issues such as whether employers and schools may maintain sex-separated showers and locker rooms, whether schools must allow biological males to compete on female athletic teams, and whether individuals may be compelled to use another person’s preferred pronouns.

“But the agencies have no authority to resolve those sensitive questions, let alone to do so by executive fiat without providing any opportunity for public participation,” it states.
Last month, pediatricians and other health care workers joined to sue the Biden administration over the “gender identity” expansion tied to health care, which would, according to the suit, require medical professionals to provide gender-related services and surgeries despite objections, medical or otherwise.

Objections, even concerning the treatment of children, would be considered “discrimination,” pursuant to Biden’s reinterpretation of sex to include sexual orientation and “gender identity.”

“The American College of Pediatricians, the Catholic Medical Association, and an OB-GYN doctor who specializes in caring for adolescents filed suit in federal court to challenge a Biden administration mandate requiring doctors to perform gender transition procedures on any patient, including a child, if the procedure violates a doctor’s medical judgment or religious beliefs,” read a press release from the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF).

“The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services reinterpreted non-discrimination on the basis of sex in the Affordable Care Act to include gender identity and thus require gender transition interventions, services, surgeries, and drugs on demand, even for children, no matter a doctor’s medical judgment, religious beliefs, or conscientious objection,” ADF claimed.

The suit, American College of Pediatricians v. Becerra, was filed last Thursday with the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Tennessee at Chattanooga. ADF is providing representation on behalf of more than 3,000 physicians and health care professionals.

In a statement, ADF Senior Counsel Ryan Bangert slammed the Biden administration for “grossly overreaching its authority” and called the mandate flatly “unlawful.”

“The law and the medical profession have long recognized and respected the biological differences between boys and girls and the unique needs they each present in health care. Forcing doctors to prescribe transition hormones for 13-year-olds or perform life-altering surgeries on adolescents is unlawful, unethical, and dangerous,” Bangert said. “President Biden’s Health and Human Services department is grossly overreaching its authority and, in so doing, putting children’s psychological and physical health in danger. Our clients are rightfully objecting on medical, ethical, religious, and conscientious grounds to this unlawful government mandate to provide gender-transition procedures.”

Immediately after being sworn into office, Biden signed an Executive Order broadening sex discrimination to include sexual orientation and gender identity.

“Children should be able to learn without worrying about whether they will be denied access to the restroom, the locker room, or school sports,” the EO stated. “Adults should be able to earn a living and pursue a vocation knowing that they will not be fired, demoted, or mistreated because of whom they go home to or because how they dress does not conform to sex-based stereotypes. People should be able to access healthcare and secure a roof over their heads without being subjected to sex discrimination.”

Biologically male athletes have unfair advantages over women, a report from the Sports Councils’ Equality Group released Thursday found.

The Sports Councils’ Equality Group (SCEG) found that there are “retained” differences in an average woman’s strength, stamina and physique compared to the average transgender woman “with or without testosterone suppression.”

The SCEG’s report concluded that “the inclusion of transgender people into female sport cannot be balanced regarding transgender inclusion, fairness and safety in gender-affected sport where there is meaningful competition.”

In an FAQ document, the researchers additionally noted that testosterone reduction or suppression “does not negate all the physiological advantages of having developed testosterone driven strength, stamina and physique.”

The SCEG “aims to promote and develop equality in sport across all the equality strands,” according to the group’s website. The group includes UK Sport, Sport Wales, Sport England, Sport Northern Ireland and Sport Scotland

“Some ‘judged sports’ are more dependent on skill rather than strength, such as rhythmic gymnastics,” the report said. “However, some have significant physical factors of strength, stamina, and physique due to the nature of the activity, such as artistic swimming.”

“Those sports which use lower nets, shorter boundaries, or lighter implements in female competition implicitly recognise themselves as ‘gender-affected’, and this acknowledges direct competition between the sexes is considered unfair (and perhaps unsafe),” the review continued. “Many sports have an age after which mixed competition is prohibited, and it is evident from such rules that mixed competition after this age is considered unfair and/or unsafe.”

American Principles Project Presidet Terry Schilling told the Daily Caller News Foundation Friday that the study once again demonstrates what “we all know to be self-evident truths — that men and women are equal but very different and that men have natural physical advantages over women.”

“While Big Pharma and the LGBT movement are bringing in big bucks from gender-confused people, they have finally met their match in terms of political power: Women. Specifically, women athletes,” Schilling said. “Women spent the better part of the last century fighting for equal rights and equal opportunities and they aren’t going to roll over and let these powerful and well-funded movements take away their rights.”

Mermaids, an organization dedicated to supporting and empowering transgender youth, said in a statement that the study “ignores the lived experiences of trans people” and “misinterprets the Equality Act and academic literature.”

“This report will have ramifications for trans people in the sporting community, and only seeks to cause unnecessary hostility, exclusion and confusion for those wishing to participate in sport,” the UK based organization said in a statement.

“It is important to remember that the SCEG report only exists as guidance: it is not mandatory,” Mermaids added. “Sports groups and organisations are entitled and encouraged to write and implement their own policies on including trans and non-binary people in sport.”
