Feminist Rejoice: Transgender Man Loses Weight-Lifting Competition
The transgender issue waits to blow up in the faces of women.
As we’ve written, some men can’t wait to show women that we can be better at being women.
Look at Bruce “Call me Caitlyn” Jenner. (S)he receives “Woman of the Year,” right out of the box. How bad that even outside of athletics, men make better women than feminists. As we wrote of feminism not long ago,
It should come as no surprise that transgendered men do well at women’s sports. These former men were mediocre men, athletically-speaking. However, as women, they become “dominators!”
As a general rule, men are physically stronger than women. Only the most hardcore feminist would disagree. And certainly, records bear that out.
The top female athletes perform at 90 percent of their male counterparts. Thus, any sport requiring strength or speed that pits the sexes against one another will be dominated by men. Consult the record books.
Well, it finally happened. A trans-man lost in weightlifting.
As the Conservative Tribune reported,
Transgender weightlifter Laurel Hubbard, who was born a biological male but competes as a female, failed to win a gold medal for New Zealand at the women’s weightlifting competition at the World Championships games this week in California.
Hubbard won two silver medals, finishing second to American Sarah Robles, who took the gold.
Hubbard’s second-place finish was a win for the real women in the competition.
But Hubbard wasn’t hailed as a hero, for giving the competition the good schoolgirl try. Instead people cheered against Hubbard.
The article continues,
After all, virtually Hubbard’s entire life has been spent as a man.
Despite the objections of many in the sport, the International Weightlifting Federation and International Olympic Committee rules allowed Hubbard to compete. But no level-headed person could argue against the fact that Hubbard had an unfair advantage against the women in the competition.
Still, Hubbard has been fawned over by the liberal media in the sporting world, so his competitors’ attitudes might have come as a nasty surprise.
Robles’ coach, Tim Swords, said many coaches had a problem with Hubbard competing.
“There was no controversy between the lifters about her presence here, but there was between some of the coaching staffs … nobody wanted her to win,” Swords told Reuters, using the politically correct pronoun for Hubbard.
So already we see “trans-bias”.
Bruce Jenner’s transformation to Caitlyn was cheered. After all, Bruce opted for womanhood. But Hubbard gets jeered. Because he opted for “manhood”.
As the article points out, men as women still are “men” of sorts.
It’s hard not to blame them.
Australian Weightlifting Federation chief executive Michael Keelan told Fox Sports that Hubbard’s participation was not fair.
“We’re in a power sport which is normally related to masculine tendencies … where you’ve got that aggression, you’ve got the right hormones, then you can lift bigger weights,” he said.
Mohamed Hosnytaha, coach of Shaymaa Khalaf, who placed third in the competition, said Hubbard’s taking part in the competition meant there would not be a level playing field.
“We didn’t agree with it, with somebody who was a man for so long, who has different hormones, different feelings,” he said.
It is not surprising that most of the coaches and participants at the competition did not want Hubbard to win.
Well, at least feminists get one feather in their quiver. A man got 2nd Place. You can bet there won’t be many more wins for the real ladies.
Will we eventually see a battle of the sexes involving trans-men versus trans-women? I know who I’m betting on.
Will the LGBTQ get yet another initial as the group attempts to make a distinction between male transgender and female transgender?
One thing is for sure, the Left will continue to refine sexuality to suit their narratives. And for most of the Left, men are simply not in the gender equation.
