Fallon Fox

Fallon Fox is the first transgender MMA fighter. After going through surgery to become a woman, she trained to become a professional MMA fighter. So far, she has won her first few fights and plans to enter into more. Many people are opposed to her fighting women because she they believe that she has an unfair advantage. I thought the comments from an article on Fox from the CNN Newsroom were interesting for a few reasons. First, both supporters and non-supporters of Fox used biology (mostly epidemiology and genetics) to argue their points. It also made me want to find out more about the process of changing one’s sex in order to determine the “truth.” Would a closer look at the sex change process show that Fox has an unfair advantage? What would happen to her career as a MMA figher if it’s determined that she has an unfair advantage?
