This particular article is near to myself, I am very interested in joining Woman’s Roller Derby, I have been torn on the issue because I don’t want to lie about my medical history and I hate the “Trans-Advantage” some sports seem to believe in. Once I move (I think I am this spring/summer), I do plan to join if there is a team in the area. ~ Beth

““I was required to sign a code of conduct that stated, ‘transsexual women are allowed to join if it has been at least two years since surgery, per International Olympic Committee rules’,” she writes in a recent article for FiveOnFive, a roller derby magazine.
Whalen, who skates under the name Lenore Gore, was drafted onto the DC Rollergirls team Scare Force One, and in this newfound sport, she found excitement, competition and friendship. She bonded with her teammates during games, after practices and at other squad outings.” - Benjamin R. Freed

I say you should go for it Beth. I'd only mention your past if the subject comes up.

And be sure to post some pics of you wreaking havoc out on the rink!! :)
If you want what you've never had, you've got to do what you've never done.
