Kiwi transgender wins Silver as a "female"
Couldn't win gold dude?

LINK

Transgender weightlifter Laurel Hubbard — a biological male who made headlines recently after deciding to compete as a woman — won two silver medals for New Zealand at the weightlifting world championships Tuesday, Stuff reported.

Hubbard — competing in the +90 kg (+198 pound) class — won a first silver by lifting 124 kg (273 pounds) in the snatch at the Anaheim, California, event. Hubbard didn’t medal with a 151 kg (333 pounds) clean and jerk lift, but her combined total of 275 kg (606 pounds) was enough for an overall silver as well, the outlet said.

Hubbard — a 39-year-old who lived as a male for 35 years — has won three of four international contests, Stuff noted. But not everyone is happy about Hubbard competing as a woman.

“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,” Australian Weightlifting Federation chief executive Michael Keelan told Fox Sports, adding that Hubbard’s presence creates an “uneven playing field.”

Tim Swords — coach of American Sarah Robles, who took gold over Hubbard at this week’s event — told Stuff he wasn’t surprised Hubbard continued her policy of not speaking to the media after her medal wins.

“She stayed away because she was embarrassed, probably,” Swords told the outlet regarding Hubbard.

The best thing about this nonsense is that it completely eliminates the premise of Title IX

So we are inching closer and closer to this being a real-life documentary.

I can't wait to watch the feminists go after women for being upset that men are taking over their sport

Will it?

As I was typing that I was wondering what side the feminists would actually take. The biological women are the most legitimately aggrieved, but turning against trans women would be a mortal sjw sin. It's a good hypothetical to pose to people who support this ideology.

They are all starting to. The problem with becoming the party of identity politics is the zero sum game aspects. Muslims tend to not be fans of the gays or hardcore feminists, transexuals are going to butt up against the feminists, and various other groups will all start infighting.
