Skip to comments.A Man Won Gold in Women’s Cycling (Again). When Will We Say ‘No More’?
Posted on 10/23/2019 5:06:31 PM PDT by Tolerance Sucks Rocks
For the second year in a row, a biological male has won a womens cycling championship.
Rachel McKinnon, who was born male and identifies as a transgender woman, won the Masters Track Cycling World Championships in the female 35-39 sprint category last weekend in Manchester, England.
The 37-year-old Canadian, who transitioned from male to female around age 29, set a new world best time, beating American Dawn Orwick for the gold.
The win has caused considerable controversy among other female athletes and observers who note the obvious unfairness of a biological male competing against women. McKinnons bodily advantages defeat the purpose of sex-segregated sports and nullify the hard work and training of female cyclists.
This isnt the first time McKinnon has faced criticism. The athletes success in the same race last year caused a similar outcry. Its no wonder a second win, in the same race, has sparked yet another. Women are realizing this isnt a one-off event, but the beginning of a trend.
According to an interview with VeloNews, McKinnon has always competed with women, meaning no one will ever know for sure how he would have performed against other biological men.
McKinnon has gone so far as to say science doesnt show testosterone gives men a competitive advantage over women. But thats simply false.
The International Association of Athletics Federations recently recognized this fact by restricting the testosterone levels allowed for transgender female athletes (that is, biological males competing with women).
Obviously, it has put some stock in the concept that testosterone does boost athletic performance, or it wouldnt limit it.
Even still, lets posit testosterone is irrelevant, that its not the factor that gives men an unfair advantage over women. There are other physiological differences men enjoy that enable them to achieve physical feats that women cant.

Soon, it will only be a race of transgenders. Women will not participate.
I think he gets his inspiration from Andy Kaufman !
The ridiculous notion of “identifying” as one thing or another is the problem. Just because someone “identifies” as a woman doesn’t make them one. Or, as grandma said, “Just because cat had kittens in the oven. That don’t make ‘em biscuits.”. People are male or female, with very rare exceptions. The little swish can put on panties and a skirt, but should not compete with women.
Outstanding! Women and liberals have spent years trying to undermine men’s sports. Now men, with the blessing of liberals and most women, are ruining sports for all women.
"We" don't count. The organizations that certify the results count.
Let me be the first in FR to congratulate Rachel for her wonderful victory. Her triumph will go a long way towards establishing true justice. Not in sports, but in the fight against feminism.
As a long-confirmed Male Chauvinist Pig, I couldn’t have come up with a more effective weapon to DESTROY the feminist avalanche. If this were a movie script, it would be rejected as too farcical and absurd for filming. Yet, the abomination of trans-genderism is burying one of its most ardent defenders, feminism.
And, of course, there’s nothing feminists can do about it. they HAVE to affirm it. They must tell their young followers, as the hippies did a generation ago in a different context, “relax and enjoy it.”
Just need a separate tranny league.

As long as so many women vote for Democrats, this will continue. It’s really ridiculous.
Liberalism has officially destroyed womankind.
TRANS “Men” (few takers)
“When Will We Say No More?”
When women say enough of this of bull shit already.
This nonsense is very close to home for me. I have a wonderful female relative who is an Olympic athlete and has dedicated her whole life to competition. She holds the US record for her event. To see this all wasted because some looser will settle for a meaningless victory by cheating makes me sick.
I don’t see the problem. Why should women participate in sports? Or if they do, why should they expect to win anything? /SARC OFF
No matter what the trannie does to make him look like a her - the hips will tell the story. Looking at the top three finishers from the front, the trannie has a straight silhouette, whereas the other two have obvious narrow waistlines and wider hips. Why wouldn’t they? They are bon female and one role of females is to procreate by carrying the future generations in their wombs, and then be able to deliver live babies.
The picture shows a male pretending to be a female. It’s really quite obvious.
Sometimes I think this trannie business is a deliberate plan to devalue women. Abortion policies are more of the same. Imagine, it you will, that a male erection and ejaculation might be redefined as a disease. It would be ludicrous. Yet, that’s what happened when pregnancy was defined as a disease by the NHS.
I say-More. Let the Left choke on the food that they helped make. Let the Public outcry drown out the few social justice warriors that want this. Only then will it end. We need it to end forever, not just here.
I could be a hall-of-famer in that league.
