In some sense it mirrors drug taking in sport: people can't increase their oxygen carrying capacity with EPO, but genetic outliers with hematocrit oozing from every pore are fine.

I'd guess endogenous testosterone levels during puberty (if that can be reliably measured years later) could be a benchmark.
Maybe it mirrors it if having an XY chromosone is just a mutation that some women have. But that sounds bonkers to me.

I don't agree with mob rule either but as you wrote, he was found guilty by a judge in a court.

I think prison ultimately destroyed his current socioeconomic status but I suppose he has a new social status there.
If memory serves, the bankruptcy and the initial arrest (HW was released on bail until the court case soon-ish) occured roughly at the same time, perhaps a couple months apart, the destruction of his company took far longer. The movies were removed from the theaters, and filming/producing of new ones stopped, pretty much immediately when the whole pile-on started. Everybody treated him and the company like a hot potato, mob rule came far before judicial action.

With a triple-digit number of allegations it seems clear that a lot of piggybacking and pile-up'ing was going on even if many allegations were minor.
Despite the feminists' absurd claims that women don't lie only 2-3-4 went to court (admittedly, many allegations were of minor nature).

It was me replying to this and giving examples of why outrage isn't new and isn't necessarily a bad thing:

I read the article but hmmm ... In my opinion, he was taken down by his enemies who knows for what reason . If there was justice really , we'd be seeing dozens of trials of some pedophiles in that same showbiz industry.. There were so many documentaries of some victims , journalists having a lot of information even some that never got diffused/published and nothing . Never something huge, not even 5% of the whole #metoo thing.

It definitely does.

Amber Heard is on tape, recorded with her prior knowledge and agreement, admitting her voilent attack on Johnny Depp and inflicting serious bodily harm. Yet it's Depp who got sacked by Disney whereas she's still on the payroll.

Disney have not the slightest problem with employing a violent psychopath, provided it's a female one. And the feminists openly commend them for their double standards while defending the attacker.

I have no idea who Amber Heard is but I also heard that Disney is keen on employing violent psychopaths. Not.

Confidence issues in sport women? Because of the few potential trans women. With all respect, if you think women lack confidence in sports you're very much mistaken.
if trans women, many of whom have an unfair advantage over cis women, continue to enter and dominate women's sport it will put off women from competing. maybe you misunderstood my post?

Some of the comments have been cringe-worthy, as others have pointed out, such as "women lack confidence in sport" or "give trans-women a taste of their own medicine".
no one said women lack confidence in sport, read the post carefully. or maybe you're trying to get a reaction?

Transwoman are transwomen. They will never be women. To say otherwise is a denial of scientific fact.

While there are women who will never have a period, never go through menopause, never bear a child, most have the capability. Transwomen do not. They've not experienced growing up as a woman. They've grown up as transgirls then transwomen. That's their experience. It really is quite different. Just as real and valid, but different. I've no problem addressing them with the feminine pronoun.
There are born women who can't have periods and can't bear a child. I know a couple.

I guess that since they can't fulfil their human role of reproduction to keep the human race alive, they are not women. What are they? men with vaginas? should we sacrifice them as they are not useful to society?

I agree with you. In fact I don't see lack of confidence in any kind of high achievers.

Tanita Brents lacked an intact skull, after an MMA fight with a transgender Fallon Fox. How is that getting addressed, I wonder.

Is it funny? It will only discourage many girls many of whom already have confidence issues from taking part in competitive sport.

You've just twisted everything around to make it look like I wrote that women had confidence issues. Where did I write that?

Are you deliberately trolling again?

They don't dominate womens' sport. They may do in the future perhaps but they don't now.
