Yeah, you heard me—The Melbourne Cup, a horse race, is golf-phobic.
Yep, they have been hosting this golf-phobic horse race for 155 years now, since 1861, and have consistently excluded all references to golf in each of those 155 years. How dare they promote horses, jockeys, trainers, and the racing silks; and completely omit golf clubs, golf tees, flat caps and argyle socks?
It is clearly an “act of violence” against golfers, to ignore them at horse racing events.
Equating horses to horse racing is completely golf-misogynistic. If a golfer says it makes them uncomfortable about hosting an event that does not focus on golfers, that should be enough for you!
Binary perceptions of sports just has to go! It should all be polo, with the horses, and hitting balls with sticks. Polo is the sport-queer of sports. Golf can have its own events and not be called horse-phobic, but hell, can’t anyone see what is wrong with horse racing that excludes golfing?
“Right like this entire event is so incredibly violent to trans women specifically. I’m so disgusted,” said another commenter.
“Equating genitalia to a person’s gender is and always will be transphobic,” a third commenter wrote.
“A trans woman is telling y’all this makes her feel uncomfortable and that’s not enough for you to rethink your stance on this? You’re gross, this whole thing is gross, have fun with your ugly cupcakes,” a fourth person declared.
Yes, just how dare females try and celebrate and be proud of themselves and their bodies. And not pretend that penises are female!
The first 154 Melbourne Cups were won by male-born jockeys. This week, the 155th race, a female jockey one the race, in spite of all the years of sexism and adversity she faced getting to that point. So the 154:1 ratio indicates that females have now reached ‘equality’.
So libfems, get onto this, and ensure that the status quo is preserved, and next year a male-born M2T jockey wins this race, and the world can pretend that things have changed for the female-born, and females don’t need any further anti-discrimination work for them. Just as happened in IT, chocked full of laydees, and actual females are not required to be in equal numbers in IT.
Michelle Payne also wore silks of the Suffragette colours—Green, White, Violet. the Suffragettes, those vocal, “unladylike” women, who spent several generations campaigning for women to be allowed to vote. How dare those women step out of their assigned gender role, and not be home caring for a dozen children!
So remember folks, to be “A Good Ally™”, never ever support horse racing, always support golf and polo. In fact, supporters of horse racing are TURFs.
