Here's an interesting article where a transgender person has won a cycling competition, and appears to be discounting the notion that his male physique and (apparently) remaining testosterone gives him an advantage. Apparently the notion that a "transgender woman" ought to be at least one going through hormone therapy before competing is a bit too much to ask these days, and if we want to kill off women's sports for good, we're doing exactly the right thing.
And in other news, Stormy Daniels' lawsuit against President Trump has been tossed out of court, rightly I think. She's even been ordered to pay Trump's legal fees, and given my hunch that this whole deal is really a midlife crisis on Michael Avenatti's part coupled with the need for both Avenatti and Clifford to make bank to pay for their divorces, this one is likely to leave a mark. This is especially the case since this is the second consecutive bold pronouncement by Avenatti that has been slapped down hard by reality.
My prediction at this point is that Avenatti's other initiatives get slapped down, and he finds himself (rightly) in the position of a number of middle aged divorcees--without money, and having just trashed his professional reputation so he's unable to earn a living. Maybe with a little improvement in his personal skills, he could become a greeter at Wal-Mart. And sadly, I dare suggest that Ms. Clifford will find herself in that position, too.
