    They are willing to compete against their same sex/gender. They and the Olympic committee treat them as the gender they have transitioned to, rather than the one they started with. I get that you...

    True, but it is if your argument is that they are inherently bad people, rapists, murderers, etc... only when they aren't whites.

    Well, she does have some Native Ancestry, it just isn't sufficient to make any strong claim to a Native identity. But on the whole I agree. She should have simply apologised for overstating her...

    Re: Elizabeth Warren: Cherokee or Fraud?

    She is not a Cherokee. Her DNA test shows she likely has some native ancestry in her family. That is not enough to qualify you as a Cherokee, not even close.

    If accusations or rape are false 8% of the time, we should not believe accusations of rape 100% of the time?

    A transgendered man is a woman at birth that identifies as a man.
