    Transexual New Zealand Weightlifter To Compete For Olympic Slot As A Woman

    Not much point in the "women" born without testicles even bothering to show up.

    Weightlifter set to become the first openly trans ̶g̶e̶n̶d̶e̶r̶ sexual athlete to compete at Olympics

    A weightlifter from New Zealand is set to become the first openly trans ̶g̶e̶n̶d̶e̶r̶ sexual athlete to compete in the Olympics, Reuters reported Wednesday.

    Laurel Hubbard, 43, reportedly has been eligible to compete in the Olympics since 2015 after the International Olympic Committee (IOC) set new guidelines for trans ̶g̶e̶n̶d̶e̶r̶ sexual athletes.

    She qualified for this summer's coronavirus-delayed Summer Games in Tokyo after the IOC approved rule changes for qualifying events due to the pandemic.

    Hubbard hasn’t yet been named to the New Zealand women's weightlifting team, but her spot is essentially guaranteed, according to Reuters.

    Biological Male Who Smashed Women's Weightlifting Records Will Likely Represent Them in the Olympics

    ... Ironically, transgender athletes prove what the very ideological movement that supports their empowerment emphatically denies: That men and women simply aren’t the same and gender is biological. [[ Not true, gender is grammatical, sex is biological, but he also confuses adjectives for nouns when he uses "male" or "female" when he means "man" or "woman" ]]

    All the surgery and hormone treatments in the world can’t change this blunt reality, especially when it comes to competitively picking up a bunch of heavy objects.

    Women are capable of amazing strength and power, and nothing shows this more than women’s sports, especially weightlifting. There are even at least a handful of women out there who could lift more than a man — elite female athletes who could beat out average, untrained men, that is.

    When these same athletes go up against a man with the same amount of training, any weightlifter knows that a woman will always, always lose, by a long shot.

    Olympics Committee Steps In, Protects the Prestigious Games from Woke Protests and Political Stunts

    Athletes who are born female and want to compete against males are simply not causing this controversy, and the reason is plain and simple. They’re simply not as strong, period....

    I wish all the women would just boycott the whole thing and not show up until this madness ends. Let them start their own category.

    I actually like this. The Olympics are a huge scam to grift billions of dollars off the host cities. It literally takes decades to pay off these loans the cities take to host the games. Crap like this just ruins the public support for the games and will put an end to them.

    Man with no penis wins LPGA tournament

    ... Last week, Hailey Davidson, a transgender woman, won her first professional title in Florida, topping LPGA player Perrine Delacour for the win.

    The same day, she was sent an email by the USGA saying she’s met the organization’s Gender Policy eligibility criteria and can now compete in its championships and she’s hoping to hear similar news from the LPGA via a reciprocity agreement, according to Golfweek.

    So much for fairness in women’s sports....

    I really don't understand why they just don't create more catergories...
    man, woman, transman, transwoman, they...

    I am pretty sure one of the powerlifting feds did:
    man, woman, and unspecified (or something to that effect)
    paulzane and Honkey_Kong like this.

    I thought Bruce Jenner was the only man competing in women's golf tournaments.

    Welcome to the new socialist utopia, where outcome is passé because equality is guaranteed.

    Girl Who Lost State Titles to ̶T̶r̶a̶n̶s̶n̶g̶e̶n̶d̶e̶r̶ Dickless Male Athletes: 'Devastating'

    A Connecticut high school sprinter who sued the state for permitting transgender participation in female sports says she lost four state titles and called it a "devastating experience."

    "I've lost four women's state championship titles, two all-New England awards, and numerous other spots on the podium to transgender runners," Chelsea Mitchell wrote Tuesday for the USA Today. "I was bumped to third place in the 55-meter dash in 2019, behind two transgender runners. With every loss, it gets harder and harder to try again.

    "That's a devastating experience. It tells me that I'm not good enough; that my body isn't good enough; and that no matter how hard I work, I am unlikely to succeed, because I'm a woman." (emphasis added)

    Mitchell's case, among four who sued Connecticut, had the support of the Trump administration Justice Department, but the Biden administration DOJ withdrew support for girl athletes amid their push for transgender rights.

    "Girls and women shouldn't be stripped of their right to fair competition," Mitchell wrote....
