Transsexual woman -- 50 years old, 6 feet 8 -- debuts on Santa Clara junior college basketball team
InsideBayArea.com ^ | 12/5/12 | Matthias Gafni

SAN PABLO -- As the buzzer sounds to announce the substitution, a handful of Mission College basketball supporters chant: "Gabbi! Gabbi! Gabbi!"

Most of the 50 or so onlookers in the dingy, yellow-tinted gym briefly look up from their chili-cheese nachos and smartphones, and then back down. A few whisper and point at No. 42, marveling at her size.

It was the debut of Gabrielle Ludwig, and at 6 feet 8, 220 pounds, with tattoos on her arms and legs, she stands out in the Contra Costa College gym. At 50, the Fremont resident is about three decades older than her Santa Clara community college teammates and opponents -- and much taller.

What many at the 19th annual Comet Classic did not know was Ludwig had only been a woman since July, when she had a sex change operation. They didn't know the long path traveled by the father and Desert Storm veteran, and how she may be the first transsexual athlete to play college sports as both genders.

If he has a y chromosome, he is a fraud. To think people get excited by stuff like this. We are a nation of morons with a moron of a leader.

At least he/she/it isn’t a felon which places he/she/it well above the typical pro basketball player.

Having cosmetic surgery does not affect one’s sex. Calling this person a woman is pure propaganda.

Well, there’s no such thing as a transexual woman, there’s just male and female.

Bodily mutiliation and cross-dressing has no effect on the DNA of every cell in the body.

“gender was determined by birth certificate.”

“On Nov. 30, an Alameda County Superior Court judge declared Gabrielle Monika Ludwig a woman and ordered her a new female birth certificate.”

Isn’t this a bit like re-writing the official history and then burying the actual historical records?

The man is a 50 year old queen. I’m guessing the average girl on an other team is looking forward to hip-checking this freak into the bleachers.

Hope you’re happy, feministas! Watch as more men push women out of sports and employment due to sicko crossdressing and mutiliation.

So glad I don’t have daughters.

Gabbi is just a big ugly middle-aged man with her penis chopped off. She was born a man, and she’ll die a horribly mutilated psychotic man.

Meh. (S)he's 50 and in about seven minutes of action that night, made three free throws, while missing all five shots from the field. A foot taller than the tallest competitor, (s)he grabbed three rebounds in her team's 69-62 loss. Male or female - (s)he sucks at hoops. Those young ladies are going run (her)him into the ground.

Allowing this mutilated and severely mentally disordered individual to play on a womans team is absurd and shows the complete lack of reality and standards that is destroying our country.

I’m a 55-year-old man who still runs, three times a week, at an 8-minute pace on a good day. At “only” 6’1” and 195#, I think not too many of the actual girls would mess with me physically on the court. (Leaving b-ball skill out of the equation, and I promise you, God left them out of my equation.)

If “Gabbi” is in any kind of shape and can shoot at all, “he’ll” be a force to reckon with just from “his” size and weight.

If he/she/it had any shame he simply would refrain from playing. Taking advantage of a man's body mass and height is an insult to the women who take this sport seriously.

It is amusing, however, that despite his unfair size advantage it appears he sucks at basketball.

I still play a lot of hoops. At 54 I can get up and down the court just fine with folks 30 years younger than I.

It just takes longer to recover than it used to.

And the powers that be, by executive order, will make it official that there is something wrong with YOU if you don’t believe it.

Wait a minute, we’re already seeing that, aren’t we?

My comment wasn't meant as a slight to you guys, or really any "masters" still playing competitively.

Take a look at the video - (s)he plays flat-footed and doesn't appear to be either quick or coordinated. Runs on her heels, not toes. Doesn't leave the ground more than an inch or so when jumping (not that (s)he needs to). At 6'8", (s)he is running at a bit of deficit joint-wise - I bet those knees and ankles ache. I give her half a season before she injures out.

Other than the co-ordination part, she looks sort of like a brunette Larry Bird; and about as good looking.

I heard that about recovery time. I really “listen” to my legs now, and the first sign of a pull, I ease up. No more “running through a little heat.” Downtime is hard, and takes longer in between.

To me, it’s a sports freak show, all the sadder because the uber-PC students “play along” with the PC mindmeld gag, and don’t even know it’s a gag.

Next, we’ll hear about the first trannie Army general, some bulldyke he/she with a “long-time life partner” and adopted Korean children.

Michael Jackson is laughing. It’s all normal now.

Bit asteroid. Looking up.

Court order notwithstanding, genetically his sex is and will always be male no matter what mutilating surgeries are performed, hormones ingested and clothing worn...

All of the above is cosmetic, for the purpose of passing himself off as something (female) he can never be...

I have to laugh at otherwise sensible people being taken in by this sort of nonsense...Like my liberal friends who marvel at the “miracle” of the “man” who gave birth...

As has been said, if he carries a “Y” chromosome, he is male...Period...

My sympathies to the young women who must now compete, share the court, and the locker room/showers with a man masquerading as one of them...

The mental illness continues...
