Debating Fallon Fox, trans athletes & MMA: Discussion with Kye Allums & Cyd Zeigler

I was a guest on Outsports.com's Google hangout with trans athlete Kye Allums and host Cyd Zeigler to discuss Fallon Fox and the issues surrounding her competing in MMA.

Yesterday I was a guest on our SBN sister-site Outsports.com's Google Hangout to discuss Fallon Fox and trans athletes in Women's MMA. I joined host Cyd Zeigler and female-to-male transgender athlete Kye Allums.

Here's how Outsports set up the discussion:

Since the day she came out publicly, trans MMA fighter Fallon Fox has been the focal point of a debate about the role of trans athletes in the sport. On the one side are people who focus on opening opportunities in sports for trans people. On the other side are those who feel trans women are a danger to the safety of her competitors and competitive fairness of the sport.

That debate has included a lot of yelling and misinformation. People on both sides of the issue are passionate. When you're talking about civil rights, equality and safety, tempers flare, mine included.

Kye is a pretty fascinating person. You can read more about his journey here.

Enjoy!
