Disc Golf Pro Tour has officially cancelled five events just to stop transgender athlete Natalie Ryan from playing after she won a major court victory.
I'm sooooo appreciative of all these stories and I'm so glad we have you Erin. So I'm saying this slightly, but not entirely, tongue in cheek when I say that my favorite part of this story is seeing that you'll be on vacation for eight days :) you deserve it! You more than earned some time away! enjoy!
It’s not even a “sport”! Probably a publicly move to get media attention. I can’t imagine what advantages a trans girl would have. So silly.
Have a nice vacation break. Feel our appreciation!
Enjoy your well earned vacation!! May you get rest and rejuvenation, in abundance ❤️
This is embarrassing. Another demonstration that transphobic people are inherently misogynistic.
Sounds like the disc golf association needs new leadership, hopefully members have the ability to replace them or start a new and improved professional disc golf association that replaces them, seems like their members would leave to be in a more inclusive and therefore a legitimate (professional) organization anyway. I say Let the bigots be with their own kind, as they say “they made their bed, let them rest in it”. I don’t know much about the DG association, but seems like a logical move forward? Yes/No?
One clarification: Natalie Ryan has not won a disc golf championship. She won two individual Pro Tour events.
This is very distressing for me. Thank you for your ongoing efforts to uncover this creeping social disease which tears a the very fabric of humanity, especially here in the U.S.A.
I keep hitting "Like" on your posts, but I don't think that's the right emotion. A large majority of your posts elicit some combination of sadness and anger.
I really appreciate your reporting. I just wish you had less bad news to report and more good news. Thanks for all the great work you do.
I had to look up what disc golf is. Pardon my language, but it's a fucking Frisbee tournament. Are they serious? And then I went to the website. The women from the Nordic countries - presumably all cis - are bigger and beefier than I am. Sigh. What nonsense.
I’m in Europe on a much needed mental break from all things insane that’s going on in the US.
Let me say this: the utter propaganda that the “US is free” is a complete joke. I feel like I’ve escaped authoritarianism and daily human rights abuse just by going on vacation. The Pride parade here a few weeks ago had approximately 100,000 people attending ....it was absolutely REFRESHING to see so many people participating. No crazy Trump flags, DeSantis car decals, or religious postering in sight.
I hope you & Zoey get to travel out of the US to REALLY breathe, because the US is not a healthy place to live right now for anyone, but especially for non-cishet folks.
Have a great vacation!!! Thank you so much for all you do!!!
Have a wonderful vacation
