The founder of the muscle-burning fitness regimen CrossFit has bowed to homosexual activists after fighting a lawsuit, announcing transgender athletes can compete in CrossFit Games.
"This is the right thing to do," founder Greg Glassman told media outlets this week.
A man who identifies as "Chloie" (pictured above) filed the lawsuit in 2014 after CrossFit refused to allow him to register for the games as a woman, since the gruelling competition is naturally divided by sex.
Pro-homosexual websites such as The Advocate suggested Glassman caved due in part to a MoveOn.org petition that was supported by homosexual advocacy group GLAAD.
"It's time that CrossFit understand that transgender women are women," GLAAD suggested in a "Let Chloie Compete" web page that urged people to lobby CrossFit.
GLAAD was likely upset by the initial response from a CrossFit attorney who called it a "fundamental, ineluctable fact" that a male who identifies as a woman has a physical and physiological advantage over female competitors.
"Our decision," the attorney continued, "has nothing to do with ‘ignorance’ or being bigots — it has to do with a very real understanding of the human genome, of fundamental biology, that you are either intentionally ignoring or missed in high school."
Related to that accusation, pro-homosexual news sites complained that CrossFit had unfairly divided people by their "sex assigned at birth," though chromosomes from sperm and egg determine the sex of a human being, not a doctor.
Glassman, now a multi-millionaire after opening the franchise in 2000, has now announced that CrossFit believes in the "potential, capacity, and dignity of every athlete," including transgenders.
