Trans woman insulted in letter denying eligibility for CrossFit Games

This is what trans woman Chloe Jonnson read in a letter from CrossFit informing her that she was ineligible to compete in the woman’s division during upcoming CrossFit Games this July because she was ‘born a man’.

Again, CrossFit told her: “. . . that you are either intentionally ignoring or missed in high school.”


Whoa! Talk about handing over to your opponent ammunition that can be used against you in a lawsuit. And that’s exactly what Jonnson is doing, taking CrossFit to court!

I see this thing getting settled pronto once CrossFit attorneys get a hold of the lawsuit papers. In case anyone is wondering, Jonnson is 5’4″ and 151 pounds.

Most certainly CrossFit hasn’t been following the saga of MMA fighter Fallon Fox where precedents have been set:

    Shame on Cross Fit – Bodyfashists should die in a cruel way…


  3. Because high school biology is of course the final word on human sexual development. Always amuses/exasperates me when people use that argument.
