Even after being on the receiving end of abuse on social media, Laurel Hubbard, a transgender weightlifter from New Zealand, won silver at the IWF World Weightlifting Championships.

So a dude who takes a lot of estrogen is still stronger than women?
Well, maybe not dominated the whole Olympics -- but they could have won all the women's events just by having
men transgenders compete in those categories.
Was the women’s powerlifting?
Females need to withdraw from any event a t is in. Let the ts have their own division.
Liberals who support rights for transgenders, will be the end of women’s athletics.
So much for all the brohura over Title IX... it’s just been erased.
How is it “abuse” to point out that when a man competes against women, his chances are pretty good?
This “woman” has been an issue for a while: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cl26Xgbltvs The video is funny.
New Zealand. Where the men are men and the women are men too.
Bearded breastless women= new chsmpions in womens sports
Maybe childbirth needs to become a new olympic sport
Do I need to say more, always trying to prove it is a woman and can never be so in fit, form, function, and spirit.
I am mild mannered woman and must tolerate in the work environement : > ) She/he is trying to be one of the girls(6 foot 5 inches 250 pounds) Its crazy. 4 more years to retirement! YAY
And the sheep live in terror
Sounds like they measured testosterone levels to qualify “her.” I’d think there would also be a requirement that the competitor be anatomically correct. The old dickectomy ... there’s no turning back now!
FWIW, the first-place finisher is an actual woman (Sarah Robles).
He stated that he was to immediately begin training for the Special Olympics.
That guy only won the silver? No wonder he left the mens competition.
The problem is we are coming to a stage where toleration is not acceptable, as it’s not enough. You must *accept* and *celebrate* their mental illness.
There. Fixed it. THAT is a pet peeve of mine. It isn't a SHE, no matter what, even if they cut his Johnson off, it will be a HE. It can never, ever be a SHE.
