Transgender athletics made the news this week when ‘Transman’ athlete Mason Johnson, born female, dominated the men’s rugby division mere months after undergoing a medical ‘gender transition’ to male..ish.
Aww. You caught me. I’m just kidding. Johnson instead reasonably announced she was delaying her ‘gender transition’ so she could remain competitive in rugby by remaining on the women’s team:
Because Johnson knew that no amount of medical intervention, no science, no testosterone injections or doping, or proclamations of her ‘male identity’ would allow her to compete as an elite female athlete on an elite male team in a sport specifically designed to measure the human capacity for violent battery and team assault committed by individuals intentionally bred for thousands of years to maximize those capacities: males, whose very physiology has been distilled for the sole purpose of violently controlling the freedoms of people like her: females.
Females may outperform males in long-jump skying and endurance swimming, and target shooting, but in bloodsports, not so much. Not yet. Like restrooms, male sports should be open to all who wish to use them. Women’s spaces, not so much.
Speaking of which: a man named Jillian Bearden (Jonathan Bearden) won the top prize of the female division at cycling’s El Tour De Tucson on his first attempt, by demanding that everyone else pretend he is female because he started taking estrogen pills a year ago, on the premise that feminized males are an abject, tragic lot, so pathetic and worthy of pity that anyone with a heart should dash their own interests (and common sense) to accommodate them.
“Transgender Cyclist is Top Female Finisher at El Tour De Tucson” proclaimed the headline about the male athlete in an Arizona Daily Star article by reporter Ezra Amacher that failed to even mention the name of the actual female winner (Anna Sparks!). http://tucson.com/sports/local/transgender-cyclist-is-top-female-finisher-at-el-tour-de/article_2c7d291f-4376-57a6-9578-3831353032bc.html
“Transgender Cyclist’s Win in Tucson Was Fairer Than It Seems” mansplained the Star’s Tim Stellar. Stellar goes on to quote without investigation the authority of a transgender radiology tech who also competes as a male against women: Joanna (John) Harper. Harper claims to have objectively studied 7 other male runners who desire to compete against women (one of whom famously exited the testing pool via a ghastly triple stabbing attack on running officials) and posits himself as the sole author of “the proof” that male athletes begin to perform in female ranges after ingesting a 12 month prescription of magic estrogen pills: http://tucson.com/news/local/columnists/steller/steller-transgender-cyclist-s-win-in-tucson-was-fairer-than/article_0851e258-2eb6-540a-8e60-1875e7bc836d.html
But do they?
Male “women’s champion” Jillian (Jonathan) Bearden never raced the El Tour De Tucson before but he does have a racing history. He raced the Salada Classic both as a male athlete and again later in the female division.
“The Salida Classic hosts a time trial with some of the best views in the State, a criterium in the heart of downtown Salida, and a deceivingly tough road race in the hills outside of town,” reads the event flyer: http://salidaclassic.com/home/
Bearden rode the Criterium in both 2011, as a 30 year old male competitor, and again as “Jillian”, a 36 year old male competitor in the women’s division: https://www.coloradocycling.org/results/individual?usac=506895&license=&year=all
30 year-old Jonathan Bearden: 51 minutes and 11 seconds.
36 year-old Jillian Bearden: 48 minutes and 47.9 seconds.
Bearden improved his performance after ‘gender transition’.
He isn’t alone.
Male cyclist Anna Catarina Lisk (Richard Lisk) joined Bearden by placing in the top 20 of female competitors at El Tour De Tucson. Like Bearden, he also has a racing history.
In 2007 Richard Lisk, then age 36, ran the El Tour at 5:42:57
In 2014 Richard Lisk , then age 43, ran the El Tour at 6:48:26
In 2015 as “Anna” Lisk he improved to 5:34:49.60
Last week, age 46, Lisk’s time was 5:30:33.48
This placed Richard/Anna 16th in women’s rankings and like Bearden, was an improvement in his performance after ‘gender transition’.
There were (at least) six males competing in the women’s division at El Tour De Tucson:
- Jillian Bearden (Jonathan Bearden) age 36, transition one year.
- Claire Louise Swinford age 46, (http://transangels.blogspot.com/2011/07/freaky-little-slut.html)
- Anna Catarina Lisk (Richard Lisk) age 46, transition one year.
- Erin Marie Russ (Edward Alexander Russ)
- A man calling himself “Summer Storm”
- Ruth Jennifer Seaman (Dr. Jeffrey S. Seaman- psychiatrist)
These male athletes were members of Team SAGA (Southern Arizona Gender Alliance) https://www.facebook.com/TeamSAGA2016/
representing their newish men-only cycling organization: the Trans National Women’s Cycling Team: https://www.facebook.com/TNWCT
The TNWCT is the first organized male-only team recognized by the IOC and the USAC as ‘female athletes’, according to their literature.
“We are a group of trans women cyclists of all ages, who have created a national all trans women’s USAC race team and club team. The sport of cycling has literally saved the lives of several of our members as we have struggled to achieve acceptance in our roles and in our communities. Rather than succumb to the struggles and challenges we face as transwomen, each cyclist has instead chosen a path of resilience, strength, tenacity, love, and civil stewardship. We ride for one another and for our nation as fully engaged examples of the power and beauty of being our authentic selves. The Trans National Women’s Cycling Team has created something that has never been done before—to bring all trans female cyclists together so we can share our stories and grow as a whole. Together with our members, we will continue to make ripples in the pond. This is our time, and it’s our turn to step forward and be free as our true authentic selves in the sport we love. We are giving back, leading, guiding, and pulling for all Americans. In each city we visit, our group TNWCT will not only race as a team and ride as a club, but also actively promote civility for all and encourage all to embrace their true selves in the pursuit of a deeply meaningful and fully committed life.”

Noted transgender activist Dana Rivers was arraigned Tuesday on charges of committing a brutal triple homicide in Oakland, California in the early hours of Friday, November 11. The victims have been identified as lesbian couple Patricia Wright and Charlotte Reed and their son Toto “Benny” Diambu-Wright.
Rivers allegedly stabbed and then shot the victims in their home, which he then set ablaze in an attempt to destroy evidence. Rivers was apprehended while attempting to flee the scene of the crime on Reed’s motorcycle. He was covered in their blood.
Police state Rivers made statements confessing to the crime. He was arraigned without bail on charges of triple homicide, arson of an inhabited dwelling, and possession of metal knuckles. He faces life without possibility of parole, and potential death sentence.
Rivers’ motive is unknown. The Mercury News reports: “Authorities have not released a motive but have indicated it might have been a dispute over some property”, while Fox Channel KTVU News reported: “Sources said the case is an isolated incident involving a domestic dispute.”
Dana Rivers (formerly David Warfield) rose to national prominence in 1999 when he was removed from his tenured teaching position as an IT instructor at Center High School in Sacramento following allegations that he inappropriately over-shared personal information with students following his on-the-job gender transition.
Rivers was subsequently featured on the Oprah Winfrey Show, Good Morning America, among other national media. He planned on writing a book and selling a movie version of his life story. With the help of an ACLU attorney Rivers negotiated a $150,000 buy-out of his tenured position and resigned. He discussed his decision in an interview with GenderPAC here: http://www.qrd.org/qrd/trans/1999/interview.with.dana.rivers-12.07.99
“IYF: What are your chances of getting another
teaching job in the public school?
DR: Excellent. Not only am I an award-winning
teacher with years of experience, but California
is in the midst of a serious teacher shortage. To
be honest, I am not worried about getting another
job in a public high school.
IYF: What happens now? I know that you have some
speaking gigs. Do you see yourself continuing as
a gender activist?
DR: I have been thrust into this role and, to be
honest, I love it. It is part of who I am to be
up front, candid, and in the spotlight. I do not
believe that this means I am particularly vain or
ego-centric. Rather, I know I am capable of
speaking out, and it feels good to move the
mountain. As long as people want to hear me, I
am willing to spread the word.
My transition thus far has been easy (yes,
even though I lost my job) compared to my sisters
and brothers who have faced ridicule and physical
harm for their gender difference. I am humbled by
the effort and energy of GenderPAC and the other
organizations who are trying to make a difference.
IYF: You just addressed NGLTF’s ‘Creating Change’
in Oakland and traveled to Washington to meet with
Rep. Barney Frank, among others. Tell us about your
new-found high-profile status as an activist.
DR: It’s been fun, a bit overwhelming, and very
rewarding to have so much attention paid to my
situation. I have been interviewed by newspapers
and radio programs and magazines from as far away
as Germany. ABC News has followed my case closely,
and flew my daughter and me out to New York to be
on Good Morning America. I had to secure the help
of an agent to handle the flood of requests for my
time. A book and movie are being considered.
I actually had Diane Sawyer and a producer
from Oprah Winfrey on the phone at the same time
a few weeks ago. People magazine named me one of
the 25 most intriguing people of 1999, and Jane
magazine named me one of the Gutsiest Women of
the Year. It is amazing! I hope this exposure
gets our message into homes where normal people
can look at me, hear or read about me, and decide
for themselves if I would be a good teacher, or
neighbor, or spouse.”
Rivers was last seen in the media in a 2008 Bay City Reporter article featuring his work as a teacher in the Five Keys Charter School program in the San Francisco County Jail.
A vigil was held yesterday for Benny Diambu-Wright at Berkely High, where the nineteen-year-old graduated from high school last year before enrolling in nursing school. Over a hundred people burned candles and shared memories of the young man and his mothers. Patricia Wright, a special-ed teacher, had worked for the same district for a decade until her retirement last year.
