So much for feminism!
I thought feminism was all about giving women a fair chance and the opportunity to compete equally in a man’s world. Women’s sports are supposed to be a safe place for women to compete against their physical equals, you know, other women.
But apparently, in an effort to blindly convince the world that men and women are essentially the same, women no longer have this chance.
Liberals are so psychotically determined to deny the basic biological realities of gender that they’re shoving women’s rights aside for the sake of transgender rights, and it’s a total mess.
In a most extreme example of how ridiculous this is, the New Zealand Women’s Weightlifting team has cleared a transgender woman, i.e. a man, to compete in the Commonwealth Games. Against women.
The Daily Wire reports:
Laurel Hubbard is genetically male, but transitioned to female in her 30s, and now the former men‘s weightlifting champion has qualified for the New Zealand national weightlifting team as a woman.
The International Olympic Committee (IOC) announced Saturday that it had cleared Hubbard to compete in the Commonwealth Games, one of several international competitions that precede the Olympics. Hubbard, they say, has “acceptable” levels of testosterone, clearing her to compete against female weightlifters even though she has a clear psychological and physical advantage.
He certainly does have a completely unfair advantage over women. Not only do men have a higher percentage of muscle mass than women, but pound for pound, that muscle mass is actually stronger by 5-10%.
So while there certainly are some very strong and muscular women out there, if a man is competing in the same weight class as a woman, no matter what he feels like psychologically, he will be stronger than his female competitors.
Australian Weightlifting Federation chief executive Michael Keelan agrees:
“If you’ve been a male and you’ve lifted certain weights and then you suddenly transition to a female, then psychologically you know you’ve lifted those weights before,” he told the Associated Press. “I personally don’t think it’s a level playing field. That’s my personal view and I think it’s shared by a lot of people in the sporting world.”
The feminist experiment is now failing, and it’s failing horribly. They’ve done such a great job convincing themselves that there is no difference between the sexes, they will soon lose their jobs as women to men, if men are allowed to simply be women.
But that’s exactly what you get when you challenge the natural order of things, isn’t it?
Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. (Gal 6:7 KJV)
