Speaking of the Olympics, the rules brought in to stop Caster Semenya because a bunch of rubbish white runners are now been used to stop cis Black Women from running.

Will go back and check out that link.

This is why these laws are so bad; sports are already arbitrary, stop pretending "male" and "female" are any less arbitrary and difficult to parse than why it's the 100m instead of the 120m.

Have a fantastic, evidence-based write up on this elsewhere. Will come back to share after I'm off my phone.

Oh, and by the way, swim caps for natural Black hair have been banned from the Olympics. Funny what the commonality is among these three news bits that happened today.

Why in the world would that be a problem? It's bigger than a standard cap you'd think it'd be a disadvantage.

in the last 2 playoffs combined, Tampa Bay is 14-0 after a loss. Any loss. Averaging 4.8 goals in those games.

G'luck Montreal!
