    It's statistically and factually accurate.

    Many are bullied into silence. Haven’t you heard? If you don’t support biological men competing against women, then you’re a transphobe.

    Clown world.

    Hubbard didn't register a snatch (the irony) and had a terrible performance. The Chinese weightlifter is an absolute beast in her weight class.
    Below is the records for comparison.

    All jokes aside, I think contact sports are where this will have more of an impact than non contact sports. Interesting to see over the next couple of olympics and whether a smaller transgender athlete will have more success.

    I'm not sure about the accuracy of these figures:

    It shows track and field events from the 2016 Olympics if there were no male/female divisions.

    It actually shows highschool boys vs the women Olympic times and exactly why the sexes should be separate

    So, you're a bigot, painting an entire group with the same brush, based on your experience with a few individuals?

    That's fine, I guess. At least you're honest. But it does mean you a cannot take the higher moral ground, so you shouldn't try.

    I am curious, though. Could you cite examples that prove the "vast majority of these incels see women as lesser humans who should be thankful to be birthing children and making supper for their men"?
    'Cos I think you're lying. And spreading misinformation in order to justify your bigotry is a lot worse and more dangerous than just being a bigot.

    You're misreading it.
    It shows that 2016's female Olympians couldn't put out numbers that would qualify them to compete against high school boys.

    Yeah, so Laurel Hubbard lost bad. She got destroyed. Wenwen broke the western narrative. We need to start recruiting Trans athletes if we are going to beat these Chinese lifters.

    He's 43.
    The fact that a guy can displace a female athlete because he wants to taste some success on his retirement tour doesn't really change the underlying criticism.

    Hubbard was 10 years older than any other lifter, she had a 15 year break from lifting too. In a sport as demanding as Olympic weightlifting that's seriously impressive she even got there.

    Oh, except it's because she spent most of her life on testosterone. Seems unfair to other legit ladies.

    Bingo. Spot on.

    A 43 year old biological woman, who had a 15yr hiatus from weight-lifting, would not have qualified for the Olympics. Hubbard got there based pretty much on horsepower alone, and that horsepower comes from spending 30-40years as a biological man with testosterone.

    Said in the other thread, what odds would I get that Hubbard will be called Gavin again before Christmas? I strongly suspect the entire facade centred around the Olympics, now it's over I bet he's Gavin again. I can all but guarantee he's still got male genitals.

    This is a known fact; no bottom surgery.
    As for odds, I'd go with 10 to 1.

    There we go then, he's an autogynephile then.

    He'll be 'male' again before Christmas, guaranteed.

    This seems very likely. Though, he might wait a little bit longer. He's aware of the controversy, so he might want the noise to die down again before openly "coming out" as a man.

    I dunno mang, she suggested that it's been going on for a while. I don't buy it being a ploy for sporting achievement, beyond him transitioning and then thinking one could be the first trans Olympian or something. These people believe the trans movement ideology, and they kinda have to so as to have the courage to go through with the public revelation of it all.

    It's only a very small number who will be as nefarious as you suggest, single percentage points of the trans population if that, so a tiny number.

    I'd not jump to such conclusions without evidence for that reason.

    Something is very wrong with world sports that this bullshit is actually allowed to happen. We have a situation now where the strongest or fastest men in the world can just decide to identify as women and dominate women's sports, setting unbeatable world records and ruining the dreams of young women who trained all their lives for a chance to compete at the Olympics. The vast majority of people see that this is a problem and it isn't ''being transphobic'', it's about fairness. Why the vast majority of people are being ignored and even vilified by calling them transphobic makes no sense. My personal opinion is that the elites who are funding and putting pressure on corporations and organizations to push this ideology are doing so to create division in society, as divided people are easier to control. The last thing those in power want is a society where the biggest controversy among the people is the gigantic disparity of wealth between ordinary people and the elites.

    So does anyone really think that if Hubbard had remained a hormonally undiminished male he wouldn't have crushed every one of these ladies?
