Surprise: "Women's" Weightlifting Competition Won By... Man

Well, a man who has "transitioned," he says, to being a woman.

A transgender weightlifter who transitioned from male to female caused outrage after he won a female competition Sunday.

Laurel Hubbard, born a male, outperformed his female competitors in the Australian International competition, reports AU.News.

Hubbard lifted about 591 pounds, compared to runner-up Iuniarra Sipaia, who lifted approximately 572 pounds.

One weightlifter pointed out that Hubbard competing in the women's division could be unfair.

"We all deserve to be on an even playing field," Deborah Acason, from the Australian Weightlifting Federation, told 1News Now. "It's difficult when you believe that you’re not. If it's not even, why are we doing the sport?"

This is going to become more and more common, and the fractures between the feminist and transgender pressure groups are going to get too wide to paper over.

More very weird news from the Transgender Wars at the Federalist, with a strong nut pull from Stephen Green.

This quote's good too:

I learned it's illegal in my state to refuse to use someone's preferred pronoun. Almost every presenter had a story of a time they got a coworker, employee, or boss fired. A speaker (pronouns xe, xyr, xemself) passionately told us of a time when xe had an older coworker who referred to xem as "ma'am." When xe repeatedly told him xe preferred to be referred to as xem, he responded that he couldn't, because he had been brought up to be polite and use sir and ma'am.

A quick visit to the supervisor resulted in the coworker being fired. There was standing ovation in the conference hall, with one member of the audience saying how "brave" xe was to enact change. Xe publicly responded that xe "needed to go above his head to get what I needed."

Oh, it's I now, huh? Not xI or xme?

Update: CBD was going to post on this.

He made a point in email. This transgender was allowed to compete per a rule that says transgenders can compete, so long as their blood testosterone level is under a specified level in the twelve months before the competition.

CBD writes:

The illogic of this boggles the mind. If gender is a social construct, how can there be a test for it? And if the test is testosterone level, how does he explain women who have no desire to be men who happen to have conditions that raise their testosterone levels to levels approaching men's?

40 transgender athletes, I wonder how many only transitioned because "sheesh I could be world class in the women's division." If it ends up tearing down the stupid title IX crap in the U.S. before the various governing committees figure out they need to write rules that only people with 2 X genes can compete in the women's divisions that would be nice.

47 Look, I've never understood something - transgender people can claim and act however they want, but when it comes to sports, why do we allow them to compete? There is no "right" to be let into a competition. Simply say "this competition is only for people with 2 X chromosomes" and be done with it.

I mean we have incredibly detailed rules on equipment, drugs, and what not. Why not this too?

63 ace that anecdote you cite is infuriating and sickening. We're talking Cultural Revolution, Khmer Rouge outrageous and un-American. People can be *fired* for not using made-up pronouns that don't exist in English?


Jeebus.


Meanwhile, non-apologies to all those focused on the "unfairness" of "punishing" female athletes with this transgender idiocy, but everybody has to get their oar in the water to push back against the cretinization of culture. Without more victims, there won't be enough push-back.


Many, many other categories of citizen have been enduring much worse abuse as the country has declined. As the constitutional republic only continues to exist here and there, and the political class is a near-impregnable fortress of status quo self-dealing and irresponsibility, there is not much response or representation left in representative govt.

106 >> xe had an older coworker who referred to xem as "ma'am." When xe repeatedly told him xe preferred to be referred to as xem, he responded that he couldn't, because he had been brought up to be polite and use sir and ma'am.

Note that this doesn't actually make sense. He and him don't replace sir.

They don't give a replacement for sir and ma'am. So the dude was trying to be polite and say yes ma'am no ma'am and got fired for it.

Yes xer and no xer? Mmm no, that doesn't actually make sense. She probably just said stop saying ma'am.

132 One of the most shameful moments of my life happened when I was 9 years old and the local community center swimming pool held a swimming competition for the kids, divided into age groups.

My mother, being evil, thought that I would lose horribly in the 9-year-old division, but would stand a chance of winning in the 7-year-old division. Since I was pretty small for a 9-year-old, she thought I could pass as being 7 years old, so she signed me up for the 7-year-old race, over my own protestations. Damn, she wanted that trophy, I guess.

The worst part? The 7-year-olds kicked my ass. I flailed around and came in near the back of the pack.

I will never live down that double-whammy of shame.

Not sure that matters in this world.

You see, even if the person is an inferior athlete, they will claim that they are not on the team because they are "transgender." They will claim that "ability" has nothing to do with it, and that, given the chance, they will play just as well as men, because they are "men."

166 neverskankles, Medicaid existed when Obama was in elementary school. It has no inherent connection to O-care - zip, nada, zilch. It's a separate issue entirely that was just tossed into the O-care legislation, sort of like federalization of student loans.


Oh sure, Medicaid is mostly a disaster, as far as we know (try to find any sort of governmental expenditure over decades on the scale of Medicaid that has been studied less - it's astonishing).


And it has pernicious effects on market development and pricing in the medical area, though probably less than Medicare.


But the (final) destruction of health insurance markets by O-care (such markets already suffered the "pre-existing conditions" of distorting federal tax treatment, state misregulation and cartelization, and anti-competitive dynamics at all levels mostly related to regulatory capture) is a separate matter.

They will dutifully prohibit, soon enough, men from participating in women's events even if it isolates some of the T-men because they are still just enough "man" to have to bear the burden of their privilege.

196 I never measured, but enough to make a difference on a 300 yard fairway?

Posted by: hogmartin at March 20, 2017 05:56 PM (8nWyX)


Absolutely. Sometimes the women's tees are a good 50 yards ahead of the men's. Figuring par for women on a hole is based on yardage that is very much shorter than men's yardage for the same.

A 280 yard hole is a par 4 for women and a par 3 for men. That's a whole stroke difference.

Occasionally you'll get the men's and women's tees pretty close together on a short par three ... or on a course that can't afford to put a different tee in for the women, but in general you have to walk a good bit to get from the men's to the women's tees because women just hit the ball a lot shorter than the men. A lot shorter.

Women have tried to play in the PGA. Annika Sorenstam (the greatest women golfer ever) played and did okay - though she didn't make the cut. One of the guys who played with her in the tournament said that her hitting was near perfect, but she just didn't have the distance to compete. Another girl (the oriental American, whatshername) tried to play a couple of PGA events but couldn't cut it.

Interestingly, there have been a few guys who were short hitters (like long female yardage territory) who have done very well in the PGA.

Interestingly, the reason she failed in the pro men's golf circuit is NOT because she physically couldn't hit as long as the men (she could), but instead because she couldn't handle the psychological pressure. In the few men's tournaments she competed in, she made amateur-hour rules violations which cost her strokes, and missed gimme putts because the pressure was too great, etc.

Pro men's golf is about 40% golfing skill and 60% mental control.

I also informed him that gender refers to nouns and sometimes to verbs, but not to people. People have sex, not gender. I may be a noun, or at least a pronoun, but I do not have a gender. I am not a social construct. I'm probably not even socially adept. But I do have a sex, and that sex is female, and no gender-bender is going to change that.

303 Testosterone testing is a ridiculous metric. Hormones are not all there is to it. Male phenotype of equivalent fitness will almost as rule always have advantage in some physical activities because of length of bone, pelvis/shoulder girth/hand size, lung capacity and blood vessel size. width, bone density, muscle mass.

Adding a bag of water to the chest generally does not interfere with this, and hormone levels can only modify, not eliminate advantage.

Heck, most women would rather compete against a genetic male with lcomplete androgen insensitivity - their testosterone levels can be competely normal for a male (although the usual situation is crypto-orchism with eventual surgical removal to prevent cancer) but the body is hyper-female.

No former male who was born phenotypically male should be allowed to complete with women, ever.

316 I think this has an impact when it affects all sports at all levels.

Think those parents in TX whose daughters had to compete against a roided-up trans-man in the wrestling state championships were mugged by reality.

When people's kids start getting injured by transmale competitors, when their daughter loses out on a sports scholarship, on a chance at international team/Olympic competition, it will hit home. It's easy to applaud a trans athlete from afar, but much harder when your daughter loses out o him and then has the pleasure of showering next to him after the competition.

I can't wait for this bullshit to settle in where I work. Tenure isn't an absolute protection, but it's a pretty good place to be at the start of the fight. Plus, I'll get the English Dept. on record either recognizing made-up words (in which case I will strongly encourage students to take full advantage of the possibilities that ensue), or taking my side.

Then, I'll submit a manuscript or grant application using made-up pronouns and see how the journals and NIH respond. When they call bullshit, I'll ask my employer if they'd rather have the support of the young Maoists (and faculty noting which side the administration is taking) or the money and publications.
