This week, one-time NZ male weightlifting champion, Hubbard, will take centre stage at the Commonwealth Games as a female.
The Australian reports: “But Coffa (President, Australian Commonwealth Games Association) admitted the result was virtually beyond doubt. “As a man, Hubbard lifted 330kg, the strength is there,” he said. “She will win the gold medal, nobody will beat her at these Games, no one.”
Coffa isn’t the only one who noticed this fact…
“A man is a man and a woman is a woman and I know a lot of changes have gone through, but in the past Laurel Hubbard used to be a male champion weightlifter,” Samoan weightlifting head coach Jerry Wallwork told the ABC.
“Wallwork has said previously the strength Hubbard developed as a man has remained with her after five years as a woman.” News.com.au
It’s not the first time a biological male has relegated women to second place.
In 2016, Australia’s Olympic Women’s soccer team was defeated 7-0 by the teenage BOYS team.
Brittany Carter from the ABC reports: “Football commentator and former national manager Sarah Groube said the whole situation was a bit of a “storm in a teacup”, considering it was quite normal for the Matildas to play and lose against male teenage footballers.
“”It’s a tremendous stretch against these young guys, they’re so quick and so strong, the Matildas would have been forced to make quicker decisions than they would have be if they were playing another women’s team within Australia.”
“”As the young men start to have more testosterone through their bodies of course they’re going to be a lot quicker and stronger than women, it’s silly to think otherwise,” she said.”
Along with a massive hit of testosterone, teenage boys experience muscular-skeletal development not shared by girls. No amount of hormone treatment will change bone structure or completely reverse these natural biological differences.
More than permanently relegating women to second place in competitive sports, men who self-identify as women are endangering the lives of the women against whom they compete.
Take Transgender mixed martial arts (MMA) competitor Fallon Fox, for example.
Fallon’s female opponent sustained a concussion and damaged orbital bone, which required several stitches.
Fallon’s opponent said: “I’ve fought a lot of women and have never felt the strength that I felt in a fight as I did that night. I can’t answer whether it’s because [he] was born a man or not, because I’m not a doctor,” she stated. “I can only say, I’ve never felt so overpowered ever in my life, and I am an abnormally strong female in my own right. ”
His “grip was different,” she added. “I could usually move around in the clinch against…females but couldn’t move at all in Fox’s clinch.” Lifesite News
It’s time to cut the false narrative of ‘equality’ that is erasing and endangering girls and women.
It’s time to start teaching our children to love the skin they’re in again. To embrace and celebrate their differences, instead of pretending they don’t exist.
The safety and wellbeing of our daughters depends on it.Share
