A few days ago, the news of the first transgender female in mixed martial arts, on record, was brought to the attention of the sports community in the form of a 37 year old fighter named Fallon Fox. Immediate concern for the safety of her opponents has become the focal point of discussion, in addition to the mounting concerns about the legality of her licensure. Does she have a significant physical advantage, since she was once biologically a male? Furthermore, does she pose a higher risk to the women she faces in the cage? Should she legally be allowed to fight professionally?

GLAAD Board Member Dr. Marci Bowers, M.D., speaks to SB Nation about out transgender fighter Fallon Fox.
