Hi Stephanie / All

Excuse my ignorance here but, in this day and age why have a man, woman, gay, lesbian or anything else match ? Cant it just be one match for all ? Would the ladies not like that ? Or .... Would the men not like that ? Im asking as if I was entering a qualifier or final I wouldnt give a stuff. Youd just be another angler I need to beat. I do tend to simplify things so sorry in advance

What we are debating is entering a competition with catagories for men and women.
Not Really as Fisho is open to all, the only real question is should there be a specific qualifier that is restricted only to those of female gender?
As Stephanie is legally recognised as a female she should be allowed to enter and that really should be the end of the matter.

The real question is should she be subject to harassment by bigots to which the answer has to be certainly not.

the argument over the gender specific match is thet although women can enter all the qualifiers matchroom and angling trust have created a qualifier that is strictly for females to guarantee that a female is in the main final and not just the ladies match that they run alongside the main event with the top women from the nationals getting a spot in it

The real question is this is an open forum and any subject raised is open for debate. The OP has started a thread, so is not shy about the subject.

yes I started the thread and no I do not shy about my situation but the main thing was not about fisho itself it was as peter pointed out bigots threatening to out me for competing against genetic females as they put it

Yes, but you have already done that by starting the thread. If you didn't want it talked about, why start a thread?
Personally I don't mind how anyone wants to live their life, it's their life after all. In post no 106 you say you want to compete in a competition for women only, so as to ensure a woman qualifies for the final as part of Fisho.
Peter, name calling is not very becomeing of the head moderator, if you feel I have infringed any rules PM me.

Blanks, I assume that you feel that I was referring to yourself when I posted "The real question is should she be subject to harassment by bigots to which the answer has to be certainly not." That is not the case however harrasment/bullying is not acceptable anywhere and had I felt that you were acting in such a way your account would already be closed.
