Put See, yes, we know you have one. Moving on. That's me then. Hi, y'all's. I used to her pronouns. Clearly, I'm the best of all of us. I've really got nothing going on. Oh, I was really bored during my class earlier, so I memorize the world countries. You're definitely a legal little you're definitely a little EGOTISTICO. I'm going to say that for sure. But my name's just I use you. They pronouns, and I would like to make the argument get I am the best. No, best day. Shut up. That's funny joke. Chessy. Oh, facts, facts, very, very valid. So truth. Well, if you say I'm not, that's and for its phobic just saying. We all knew I was transphobic. That's my purpose too. That's a joke. That's a joke. My what's your role in Lgbtq podcast, Jackson? Well, I'm almost transphobic. I homophobic, I biphobic. I'm fucking phobic verified of Queer people. Yeah, they just, you know, I see them ice cream, which is I gre me. They scare me. They're very you know, scream, but not because I'm afraid, just they're just so obsessed with Jennifer coolidge. It's just I can I just you are Jennifer Cool Investi I am Jennifer cool edge. That's true. I can't do who voice, but you know anyway. So now, well, we are now holding you hostage, by the way. That's why. Totally to get in the fucking AH. So you're not allowed to leave. Put you see, pat on, because we don't win. Not Getting tickets here. No, take it when everyone's ae pl Tal on Simon. Yeah, great, HMM. I for your seat belts, you see.

Right, okay, so, since we're kidnapping you, we are going to take you to our social media, which on Instagram is house of cards underscore podcast, on twitter at lgbt underscore deck, on Tick Tock as house of cards podcast, and on what's the new one? Stick to know. There's a new one, isn't there? Youtube? Um, you can find us on Youtube at House of cards, lgbtq deck. You sell. Like not to objectify you, but you sound like a showgirl and like those the shows really like. They like cres dreamed as a kid. But yeah, that was my dream as a kid. I wouldn't to be those girls so bad. And now you are, but for its trashy podcast that you said, traveny. We're very classy. What trash is? Fuck, but that's the goal, he says. You. You can, Oh my God, guys, anything. He's parking one fighting da facts or eating God, like just straight up cannibalizing him, and you can find on them. You can find avery at your local book store at any moment. And it has to be like a run bookstore. A can't be like like chapters wooks. But if it's like a small dingy, you have to like sell your liver to a crack deal of bookstore. Avery's in there. Okay, way, my broad you know me so well. Okay, I have told you, guys about this thing that I heard the other day, like from this girl. I was watching this video, but your chits has you can break a cock road. Now. It's basically she was explaining why, why, in like the Jewish religion, it would be completely okay to eat God. Oh this, yeah, I want to say it on the PODCAST, though, because it's really funny. Okay, so her words, the first question you would need to ask is, is God Kosher? Basically, has ever said, by the way, so there's like three trains of thought on this. God has never taken the physical form, God has taken the form of burning Bush and God has taken the form of a man. So between those three non existent it's not even an argument. You cannot eat God. If God is a human cannot eat cannot eat God. That is not kosher. And if God is a burning Bush, you can totally eat God, completely kosher. Aka, you catch a Bush burning somewhere, feel free to grab your guys for Fellas, you're going to fact and follow on the long okay, yes,...

...but here's the really, really interesting part about this. So what she was saying is that in the Jewish religion it is completely like your duty to question and fight with God. So in Syrie, if you fought God, killed him and then eat him or ate him, that would be totally okay, and as long as he was a burning Bush, totally okay, as long as you are well. So, if you guys want to find some moon, just go to goal corner and that crazy person with a cordboard find that is the own. Yeah, just listen how dark alleyway it's. Someone is there and she won't. She won't be there. They will like suddenly immorse from the darkness. ME, like kind of yeah, like you don't talk about no, yeah, and like like not to objectify you, Samon, though, but you will see their tits for like the first five minutes before they emotion, like seven foot frame rats along like back. Yeah, but seven tests. That is screwed from my body anyway. Shut up. Yeah, ugly the UM. No, No, Shush, we got things to do. Jess, yeah, Jackson, but that's not no, Jess. You need to settle down. This is you need to come on stuff. It's not my stocks, stocks starts gas lighting, Jess. No, but today, today, today it's Bom Mixing Nostalgia, because if you'll listen to this podcast, you're depressed. I'm sorry, I just you know, I'm sorry to tell you you are. We're gonna DO? We're going to play rose in the Thorne, which, by the way, was introduced to us by avery on like one of our fourse view it was episode. Yeah, it was. It was all. That was every it seems like such an everything to say no, used to do this in middle this was introduced to us by Simone in one of our fourth early episodes. And someone. Do you want to say to jess, because I don't think we've played it with Jess. So if you want to say it's remembers and on you you aways remember. Yeah, okay. So rose in a thorn is super simple to play. Basically, you go around with like all the people you're with and you say one rose, which is a good thing about your day, and one thorn, which is the bad thing about your day. Generally it's done in the form of thorn, then row, so that you leave on a happier out yeah, ok, and when and when you're done, you...

...have to kill a dragon. Yeah, to Seeah, sorry, just just pray for that, you know. Yeah, anyway, you let's let's start with alphabetical. Let's talk about order that we introduced. So we'll do avery me just as that's it. That's it. That's it. Thought, just myself. Ok, I guess my rose today was that, during one of my classes, my dad bought me a dairy green blizzard and surprised me with it. Oh Shit, I just kick something. It's fine, that's your word. That's my son. I don't know every nth on a bad nose. That's why I had one of my classes today that I didn't enjoy. So Gross. Yeah, I don't like the guy, like conic, like Scottes. Anyway. Yeah, also, you, Jackson, says. Who says you every day? Well, I talked to me in your life. This guy looked at me and he's really hot. I think we're falling in love for well, I have not said it in a while because I know that is that is an unrealistic that was like three days ago. I don't say I just say that he's hot. My Thorn is Suman, apparently, because I'm getting tired of the disrespect. I do need to talk. You're literally just talking about some foot long tits. That's their compliment? No, but really, seven four long tips from there. I don't know what women want. You know, we can tell. Okay, Thorn, it was me. No, it's not. Actually, I love to moan cut honestly, the throne was I was very young, a lot. Somebody I really hate was forced to stay with me because my other friend like doesn't mind him, but she doesn't know that I don't like it. It's, you know, drama, high school drama. Awesome. I Hate Triangle, but yeah, but then the good thing is that I completed my first module of Physics Twenty and my goal is to finish all of them by the end of March. So I have a month off of physics swag. Oh yeah, so...

...my mom didn't high school? Yeah, because she's Sixy fuck. No, she did it in one month actually, and then she's had a spare for the rest of Buck to let me. Okay, so this is a bit of weird one. My Thorn is that apparently I don't exist. What. Sorry, currently in the process of getting my name lely changed. Oh my God, I know very exciting, very exciting. I got an email from the police station that I'm registering at and let me, let me just, let me just read you this superspepoint. It's up. You just did dud dud, Dud, D D Dud. This name is taken to you mind change in the all right application authentication error. Friends, union was unable to confirm who you are. This happens when you do not have enough credit history, give wrong answers or take too long to answer the questions. If you have any questions about your credit history, called Trans Union at that, Dada, DA, Dada. You will need to come in personally with Nid for proof of existence. Do you have an ID? I'm in the system. I don't know how that happens, because you turned into a major or less over a month ago. That truns. Yeah, what you accidentally spelled your name run slightly and they were like Nope, nope, wrong, wrong. The answers full fost name, Middle Name, last name. Yeah, you correct. That's just a like a real middle name, because I have to get like a police check and like fingerprint and stuff. I was really hoping to get all of that sorted out and then just going with like payord then just get it done, because I don't want to talk to but it looks like I'm gonna have to. So Nasty. I'm so sorry. Bestie, will stay ever. Okay, I's gonna Baum, as you should, pop off King Um and rose, which, as it is, the class again,...

...which is my favorite class ever. My food teacher is so gay. I can't see that, um. And also, I really, really love my social and this is three of us, or actually I don't know, but I just started semester two, which will be the last semester of high school ever. I'm nice. I still have a quarter to go through. Yeah, weird, but I do a weird you look weird. Fuck. Yeah, that's the nude. It's not funny. I've got school. It's so funny. I got school. I've got school. It's not funny. I've got school tomorrow. I should I say my rosin literally is the most bendsome. Sorry, that's like Canadian. That's British. No, but the way you get it's so I sot funny. I go school and I've got school. No, it's not funny. I'm good school. Yeah, I think Jack says. Yeah, I'm the Canadian version I'm all, but that's literally means then when we have breakdown. Okay, so my thorn it is that I have to pee like really badly. Phrase is like bad class. Jess's is like I don't exist, mine is I hate people, and Summons is I have to pee like you're really bad. Um, I love it and fit someone so good. Thank you, Um. Actually, no, I change my thorn. Okay, so, basically, I bought a styre from Mannequin head right a couple like a like a month ago, named it and you named it after each of us just so that you can like punch us. No, so my brother will come into my room every single day and damned her head a little bit more each day and she's so concaved in the middle of her skull right now and it's just disturbing. Should pop off. It's so bad because I use her as a head to head stamp. In Middle School I had a Styre from head for whatever reason, and somehow it got into my I like the guy's hands or whatever, and it fucking...

...curb stomped it and then went into the bathroom. Literally they close the stall door on it and flould it in half. Also, stall door in one of my bathrooms in my school is gone and it's a handicap water. What the fuck? That's just public school, public and there's no choice anyways. Sorry. Yeah, Um, speaking of your brother, Lison, on, there's like this one dude at like my university and every time I see him, like it honestly, like I think it's him every single time and he wigs me out. I mean he goes close to your uni, so maybe okay, but like I mean like in the dining center, like where you need like a student Id to get in and stuff. It's so, yeah, he's not there. Yeah, but I did see the guy standing in front of me at subway the other day and like I almost fell over because I thought it was your brother at first. Got All awesome of you been going into subway and sneaking into your university. God umb okay, my thorn. Okay. So, basically, I'm like getting ready to construct an outfit for four hundred and twenty made out of fabric that features leaves of sorts, and my friend offered for me to borrow their sewing machine before for it. Okay, so today, where are we talking about sports, which is fucking horrendous. Wow, that was this was avers idea. I'm just setting I'm just kidding, kidding, I know I agree with you. So, like, okay, so we're we're kind of fruity. Okay, I don't know if you know this. So, like, this is kind of unexpected because they're like stereotypically Hetero, which is because of early mainstream dominations of sports as male, which is bullshit, because I love sports personally, especially when considering how some people gate keep sports, which is so fucking dance in, gymnastics, art, sports. Sorry, people should not get keep one of sport is, especially if they're more athletic than you, like dancers or gymnasts. Yeah, so like dancers who go on point literally have their entire body weight on one to it's a sport, but we're we talking about queers and sports. That sounded like the first day of off script during a play when one of them, when someone hasn't member sister gript. Yeah, and they just remember bits and pieces. That's always what I do. That's what I used to do for school plays. Actually, I would have raiss like the first couple lines of a sentence in the make it up, but it's really sucked when we were doing Shakespeare Movement. A US in his place is just always...

...out of pocket. Yeah, you say penis every second or you're basically made a sax STU play. That's so true, it really is. Specifically, we're going to be talking about transgender people in Sports, which is not is actually a large focus of controversy which right now, under all things lgbt, our controverse a or not. So we're gonna debunk some myths and get down to the nitty gritty of transgender rights in sports. So we're going to start out by recognizing one of the earliest high profile transgender athletes, Renee Richards. After being banned from the one thousand nine hundred and seventy six US Open after transitioning, Richards won a civil rights suit against a test that determined that the only way a quote unquote, woman could participate was if they had XX chrom zones. She then proceeded to compete and played professionally for four years before retiring. Go off Queen as she should. Literally are. I absolutely love it. I also love it everything transgender she's saying. Let's a bit of that tape there. Thousand and three also the year that you're the only one here. Yeah, face whole. The Olympics proposed three conditions for transgender people. It's because I was born and I knew like I'd be took up. Yeah, because just is really good. It's what's us. Just see, like they are, just like they are, just, they are just covered in muscles, like he. He's just cut, pure muscle all over his body. Also, a sport, figure skating, is ascribe figure streating count facts. Yeah, the athlete must undergo sex resignment surgery, including replacing external genitalia. And gone, gone, go, nads go, and Gon addict to me, affect to me. That's which, by the way, what the fuck does that have to do with sports? Y'All are fucking obsessed to? Obviously, because gonads are what make hormones so like. I don't I honestly can't say, because I already if like with its bodies. Um, yeah, that's too that they have waitally changed and, three, that they had undergone hormone treatment for at least two years. transgender athletes were proved to compete in two thousand and four into that the year that the rest surress were born. The yeah, those babies, children, it says a stroke one I...

...would take away. Yo, in two thousand and fifteen, these changed again. The only required trans women athletes to be declared the woman for three years and have a testosterone level less than tended of its sexist yeah, leader for at least one year of fighter composition. There were no such detections. For you male athletes you bring up the way simone, because no matter if fucking what, people just want to fucking control women. Yeah, like even trail. Like I have a question that about. Is What? When it says it's stronals generally, I think we can form later that tits a not consider genitalia. But, like, would the Olympics want, like, is that it? Was that a requirement? I mean, I don't like athletes wanted. I'm sorry, I don't think athletes really want boots. Who was the I meanly they're not there's they're not genitalia because they're like Secon yeah, characteristic. So I don't think they would count. Now I would be like having to shave your beer to compete in the Olympics. Yeah, which is ridiculous. There was the non Bo this year and I can't remember if they'd undergone chest surgery or not. We might talk about in the episode. We do talk about the player, but I don't. I didn't hear any. I didn't, like see anything about whether they're like they've undergone two dree yeah, no, but I'd just like to say, like, piggybacking on what's Moon said, women will always have a harder literally, no matter what kind of they are or like yeah, Holy Shit, like okay, all right, you want to be a woman, prove it, like that's Society's yeah, like what, it's so fucked up, dude, like you don't need hities to be a woman. Literally Anyway. Piggybacking off of what Simons said, these conditions for Trans Women are due to Woore's with very big I can't remember the words, avery. What's the word? Quotation, quotation marks, about Trans Women having quotation mark unfair advantages. Quotation mark because of their biological not biological, because of their biology prior to transitioning, which a is not only reinforcing the stigma that transmument aren't real women, which they are. We can't you know, enforces anymore. They just all hate to tell you, Bestie, cry about it. I don't care quite yea like leave, but also be it's also reinforcing the misogyny that if a man and woman were to have the same training regiment for the same sport, that mant that a man would automatically be considered stronger or superior in the terms of athletic sism just because he is a man and biologically better, which is sacist. This is really funny,...

...mate. We made the joke about like doing. This episode is, if we will, like I'm like a Guy Podcast, and this is the really like a we're talking about. Women aren't real. Yeah, these he's fucking women were to walk around and act like they're better than us because they are. Well, listen, they're not allowed to do that. They like get back in the kitchen. fucking shave your good so I'm comfortable and six of my genetically impaired children. You better stay broad leaving your ass and and I'm love De side. Oh but you're not, like if you have a side out your whole. If I do, I'm a player. I expressing my sexuality, but not you fucking horror. Anyway, moving on. Oh, it's my turn. Watch us. Is it my Turner? Is a Jackson's turn? Oh No, it is my time. Just me to this begins to mote is Jackson's love it. All of these regulations pertaining to Trans people athletes lead to controversial debate on gender identity, bioloctical differences in terms of strength and endurance and like, the Um and what qualities? What qualifies the rules for Sporting Events? Since gender woman was born with exceptional height, surpassing six foot, for would she be stricken from competing in women's sports just because she has man's advantage? Or is a gender man born with less than a rich muscle index? Would he like need aids to compete in these competitions? So no one deserves AIDS. Best to we have this. No, not, that's not that. No, like, no, you know what I mean. Or would he have to like compete in the Women's book? That's not right, that's stupid. These questions become even more complex as one considers family history, genealogy, BMI, health and other factors. It's ridiculous. It's a stupid yeah, it's what we do. Their bodies plas. Yeah, and in today's economy, I can't believe it. I can, unfortunately, but yeah, or generateler and we still want to control women in the same way we control fucking prop but that's a conversation for another episode. It is last dear to the transgender athletes became the first openly gay transgender athletes to...

...compete in weightlifting and Women Soccer New Zealand. With with what words? New Zealand Weightlifter Laurel Hubbard became the first ever openly Trans Women, woman, God woman, some women, to to compete in the Olympics. In August two thousand and twenty one, she competed in the plus eighty seven kilogram weightlifting, which you know. For those of us who don't know fucking kilograms, is that roughly like one hundred ninety pounds. That was two hundred. It's that's why it says a roughly. Yeah, so, which is like that's like two of me, Jesus, like four of me, Oh my God. At the same games, in July two thousand and twenty one, non binary Canadian soccer player win became the first openly trans gender person ever to compete in the Olympics. Swag, sexiest fun. I love that. They're like Jersey was customed to have winn like. It was fucking awesome. It has the Olympics and I don't do sports, but I will fuck out there cheer for them. When then, the mid history again by becoming the first openly transgender person to win a gold medal in the Olympic sporting event. During the same games, a non binary American, Atlanta Smith, represented the United States of Americas Summer Two thousand and twenty one, and they women's skateboarding semi finals, placing last in twenty at only twenty one years of age. Part of that a lot of one silver and their first ever skating or skating skateboarding competition. I cans in Barcelona when they were only twelve. I didn't know that skateboarding was an Olympic event and that's fucking sick. I think it only like joined last year. That's so dope. It's very good. Like that's amazing, that's awesome. Anyways, we love Trans we do the transits. You heard me, you, Volde men, is a transit. I mean, I could use another word, but we might get my turn right. Yeah, well, we only cover what we only covered the Olympics. Trans Discrimination in sports is everywhere, even in the high school divisions. Hopefully, in the next to look mix we'll see even more transit athletes, and likely more revisions to the qualifications because wow, well, and likely more revisions to the qualifications...

...because they're benefiting nobody. With Tobe, I say this right or I'm going to die. Rhanni, Richards, Lori, Lori, Laurel, laure how about Quinn and Elena? Smith? Are All valaist fucking we are proud to support them. Hell, yeah, yeah, this, this podcast, is brought to you by no, the home of one friend, person that doesn't just wants anymore your friends.
