“Fallon Fox shouldn’t fight dudes, Fox shouldn’t fight woman. Transgender people should have a unique organization for those needs” – Ashlee Evans-Smith.
So why does Evans-Smith think Fallon Fox and other trans people should be segregated?
“She (fallon Fox) did have did have a unfair advantage.”
And that was after Ashlee Evans-Smith she she won because she hit harder, grappled better, had better ground techniques, cardio and leg strength.
Would I fight Fallon Fox again? “No because I want to fight someone and I think all other woman want to compete against people on a equal playing field.”
Meaning of course she doesn’t think transgender woman are really woman.
“Oh and I hope LGBT people please don’t hate me.”
Ironically after reading some of the comments on Youtube it appears that the Ashlee Evans-Smith interview enlightened many who were previously opposed Fallon Fox fighting other woman.
Fallon Fox responds to this interview rather incredulously on Outsports:
But, that’s clearly not really what this is about. This is about the category she has me in within her own mind. It’s apparent to me that many people see me as “transgender” and not “woman,” meaning they don’t look at me as female, they don’t look at me as male, they look at me as something “other”. How rude and uneducated! All of this “misgendering” because they are not used experiencing a trans woman.
I wonder if Ashlee Evans-Smith recognizes the historical irony of her discriminatory beliefs.
