First openly transgender athlete to compete at Olympics
I hope it demolishes records on it's way to the gold.

A weightlifter from New Zealand is set to become the first openly transgender 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) setting new guidelines for transgender athletes.

She qualified for this summer's coronavirus-delayed Tokyo games due to the IOC approving 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. LINK

Talk about the one sport where you can unequivocally say that her male bone density and muscle development will give her a massive advantage.

Good. Weightlifting is the perfect activity to demonstrate this insanity on a world stage.

Apparently this person has taken gold in a bunch of regional competitions. Shouldn’t be too much of a surprise to see him win gold in the olympics.

Nah, they should try MMA or boxing to really prove their worth.

Or maybe that 8th grade boys soccer team from Dallas that beat the shite out of the Women's world cup soccer team.

I wonder why we never see any transgender males making the Olympics as men...

Could it be...

Nah. The dems say if you think you're a female, you're a female.

A man winning gold medal at a women’s Olympic event will be amazing to watch.

The IOC is so hypocritical They let this thing compete but not Semenya? Semenya should not be competing but has every right to now.

What if a male athlete self-identifies as a much stronger male athlete, and takes hormones in order to become the much stronger man that he identifies as? Should that be allowed?

What a sick bastard. At it’s core, this entire “transgender” agenda is a vituperative assault on feminity.

It increasingly appears that there will be no bottom to this insanity:

“I now identify as a goat Sarge. From here on, I fully expect to receive all rights and privileges therein. Oh. And by the way: I fully expect the Army to pay for my horn transition surgery.”

re: First openly transgender athlete to compete at Olympics
There is nothing I love more than when liberals end up eating themselves with their stupid bull shite policies/beliefs.

We were told WOMENZ ARE TREATED UNFAIRLY BY MENZ. We were told MEN CAN BE WOMENZ TOO.

I can only hope to God this person destroys the competition and all women get pissed.
