    A transgender weightlifter has swept the women’s categories in the 2019 Pacific Games in Samoa, winning two gold medals over natural-born female opponents.

    Laurel Hubbard has once again crushed natural-born female opponents winning two gold medals and a silver in three heavyweight categories for women at the games, according to the Washington Times.

    Hubbard defeated Samoa’s Feagaiga Stowers, who won the gold last year when Hubbard pulled out due to an injury.

    Born as Gavin Hubbard, the 41-year-old weightlifter has cut a wide swath through female weightlifting after transitioning as a transgender woman six years ago. The only hiccup in Hubbard’s domination of the sport was an elbow injury during last year’s Commonwealth Games.

    Hubbard’s continued gains in the Pacific region may have served to spur the leading U.S. weightlifting association to ban men transitioning to females from competing against natural-born women.

    This year, USA Powerlifting delegates voted 46 to 4 to keep a previous policy banning transgender participation amid pressure from well-funded transgender athletes to reverse the ban.

    Aren't these transgender people SO VERY PROUD of themselves? Like a big strong bully coming in and winning a peewee league batting contest!

    What incredible poor self-image they must have to have to compete so unfairly. But, then again, that's probably why they "transed" in the first place.

    And another one: an average to below average male college athlete suddenly becomes dominant after competing against women.

    NCAA track star CeCe Telfer is racking up record after record for Franklin Pierce University in women’s college track. But the feat seems a bit less impressive upon learning that only just last year Telfer was competing as a man named Craig, and was a solid athlete in the men’s division as well.

    https://www.breitbart.com/sports/201...peting-female/

    NCAA rules say that a man must be on testosterone suppression treatments for at least one year before he's allowed to compete against women, but Craig's performance on the field is only slightly below what it was last year suggesting that either he's cheated, or the NCAA rules do nothing to eliminate the natural physical advantage of being male.

    Sports League Rejects Transgender Athlete’s Claim to Female Weightlifting Records

    “Our rules, and the basis of separating genders for competition, are based on physiological classification rather thana identification,” said a statement from Paul Bossi, president of 100% RAW Powerlifting Federation. Bossi continued:

    "On the basis of all information presented to the Board of Directors for this particular case, the conclusion made, is that the correct physiological classification is male … Since the lifter’s gender classification for the purpose of our rules is not consistent with female, no female records will be broken by these lifts."

    The problem with that solution is that women transitioning to men are therefore taking testosterone shots and are therefore competing with a distinct and unfair advantage. They don't allow this type of doping in most sports but if you're "transitioning" then it's ok? I would say they would have to stop the hormone shots if they stay in the women's class.

    Mixed, for sports or competitions like car racing or parachuting or anything where it's agreed that males or females do not have a decisive advantage over the other sex/gender.

    From the article cited:
    McKinnon ... argued, "Trans women are women. Trans men are men ... to treat me as a different king (kind, I believe it should be) of female or woman is inherently unjust." The relevant portion begins at the 3-minute mark:


    Ah - so there ARE only two genders after all.
    According to this definition of gender:

    either of the two sexes (male and female), especially when considered with reference to social and cultural differences rather than biological ones. The term is also used more broadly to denote a range of identities that do not correspond to established ideas of male and female.
    "a condition that affects people of both genders"


    Of course, the logical solution to this insane set of circumstances - assuming that there is any validity at all to the multiple gender world-view - would be to establish 4 (or however many it takes) divisions of competition. CIS Men, CIS Women, Trans men, Trans women (and other divisions based on however many groups people decide to invent.)
    Or just recognize that we use the birth sex of all participants to allow them to compete in either male or female competition!
