Many will look at a #transgender woman’s face and height (which doesn’t change with feminising hormones) and think ‘it’s unfair’. That is an assumption. A stereotype and not based on any science. Let’s go through what the science does show... 👩‍🔬
Note that being #trans is not a choice, and whilst complex, gender is influenced in part by innate factors such as genes 🧬. Only ~0.5% of people in the population are trans, and only 1/3 of those are #transwomen.
A #transwoman who has had puberty blockers as a teenager and never been through male puberty, has the physiology of a woman. 🙋What about trans women who transition later after puberty❓

Dominic Perrottet, the premier of Australia’s most populous state, NSW, has defied attempts to shut down debate about the effect of transgender “inclusion” on female sport, saying it’s a “matter of fairness & physiology”. #AusPol #Sport #Safety
Perrottet: “The right thing to do is take the concerns of women & girls seriously, not shut them down, and if that means looking at appropriate protections for women-only sport, let’s have the conversation.”
The “progressive” wing of Perrottet’s Liberal Party view the issue as a validation of trans identity & overlook the reality of male-bodied players in female sport. Identity is not the problem, which is why female-bodied trans players would face unfairness & injury in male sport.

#OSINT gets more important in #journalism. 📈

Today I gave a lecture to 🇧🇪 teachers in journalism about the force of online investigations. 🔎💪

@TextyOrgUa This amazing piece by @FoekePostma from @bellingcat is a good example of an #OSINT driven investigation about 🇺🇸 nuclear "secrets" in Europe.

[#Thread] Mes chers amis, j'ai décidé de rajouter une petite couche et de remuer un peu le couteau dans la plaie.

Le sujet : Que faire lors de la baisse du marché des #crypto / #Bitcoin ?

Rangez vos mouchoirs, séchez ces vilaines larmes et voyons comment profiter de la baisse⬇️
Les yeux fixés sur les graphiques du #Bitcoin et l’angoisse de ne pas avoir vendu quand c’était au plus haut sont le quotidien des #investisseurs #crypto.

La « petite correction » sur le Bitcoin et les cryptomonnaies vous effraie et vous ne savez pas quoi faire ?
Nous allons voir les #erreurs qu’il ne faut pas faire ainsi que les bonnes habitudes à mettre en place pour en profiter de la #baisse des marchés plutôt que subir.

Sachez qu'une correction est naturelle après plusieurs semaines de hausses consécutives sur les #cryptomonnaies.

Leggo con enorme sorpresa le dichiarazioni della Sottosegretaria Valentina Vezzali che esplicita e rivendica il suo ruolo nella nomina del direttore generale di una SpA, quale è "Sport e Salute". Evidentemente sono saltati anche i principi base di pudore istituzionale (1/3)
Continua invece a moltiplicarsi la complessità della governance dello sport italiano, che ormai conta sei punti di riferimento diversi fra CONI, CIP, Sport e Salute e Dipartimento per lo Sport presso la Presidenza del Consiglio dei Ministri. È questo ciò che serve? (2/3)
Nel momento più complicato dello sport di base, che al netto della straordinaria estate sportiva ha oggi gli stessi drammatici problemi che aveva a maggio, non sarebbe il caso, al contrario, di iniziare a semplificare? (3/3) @pdnetwork #sport

To get you in the mood for England-Ukraine in the Euros, @dcsandbrook & I have recorded a @TheRestHistory special on the history of Anglo-Ukrainian relations - from the origins of 'football' to Hughesovka……… ImageImageImageImage
Includes me reciting Tennyson, our reflections on Harry Maguire & Greek civilisation, which members of the England football team properly belong to which century, & shout outs to @caitlinrgreen & @AdamRutherford
Yes, quite right, silly me - also includes Francis Fukuyama's take on the Euros.

.#Netball leads the sector by engaging and retaining large numbers of female participants; This is important because females often participate in less sport than males

#Legacy v's #PurePlay specialists

This week #EddieHearn announced the worst kept secret in sports broadcasting - He's taking his show, Lock Stock, to Mr #Blavatnik first-mover streaming service.

#Thread with a different perspective...🧐 ImageImageImageImage
This is exciting for #Sports fans - Especially #boxing

Lower cost access
More shows
Bigger production

Interesting, it's announced a week after #SundayTimes named the owner of #DAZN as the richest man in the UK (again)!

That rich list is an good starting point to explore Image
We're living through changing times;


What's that got to do with #DAZN & #Sport 🤔

Well, Sport & #Entertainment is big business 💰

It's also used by powerful people to influence Hearts & Minds...

Un lunghissimo thread che ho scritto invece di fare la lavatrice e pulire sotto al divano
E’ interessante quanto è mediaticamente accaduto fra il 30 aprile ed il 1° maggio sui principali schermi del nostro Paese.
Sto ovviamente parlando del monologo di #pioeamedeo e dell’intervento di #Fedez al concerto del #PrimoMaggio
Quella che è andata in scena infatti è probabilmente una delle faglie che attraverserà la società e la politica italiana del futuro. In 24 ore di tv si sono scontrati due Paesi opposti per consapevolezze e prima ancora per anagrafe

Offiziell soll die COVID-Pandemie in #Schweden nicht zu einem Anstieg der Todesfälle bei #Kindern geführt haben:
Die von #Malmberg erhaltenen E-Mails zeigen jedoch, dass #Ludvigsson im Juli 2020 an #Tegnell schrieb:
„Leider sehen wir einen klaren Hinweis auf eine übermäßige #Sterblichkeit bei #Kindern im Alter von 7 bis 16 Jahren, dem Alter, in dem Kinder zur #Schule gingen.“

This is the biggest story in World #Sport at the moment

The way the narrative is starting to play out is so reminiscent of the #Trump election - It's a scary template!

Regulated media V's Unregulated Media competing to tell the story 🤯#Boxing #Tribal…
For any #boxing / #sport fan with no previous knowledge of these characters, we should be sceptical of simplistic caricatures that are served up by Online Fans OR stenographers masquerading as journalists!

There's a lot of sh*t out there! 🤳💻

Research & Critical thinking! 🤔
If we accept the @panorama programme #boxingandthemob then we have a situation whereby #OrganisedCrime has not only infiltrated BUT is dominating a Global/Professional Sport!

If that's the case, what's to stop these forces taking over #Football OR other major Sport next?
