Face of the day

The boss of Australian weightlifting has demanded that Kiwi transgender weightlifter Laurel Hubbard be banned from the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games because she has an unfair advantage over female rivals.

[…] “Ultimately, it is our strong view that weightlifting has always been a gender-specific sport, male and female, not a competition among individuals of various levels of testosterone,” Keelan wrote.

“In our respectful view, the current criteria and its application has the potential to devalue women’s weightlifting and discourage female-born athletes from pursuing the sport at the elite level in the future.

[…] Australian weightlifter Deborah Acason, who will be competing with Hubbard on the Gold Coast, said Commonwealth Games organisers should be prepared to have difficult conversations about transgender athletes.

For the future of women’s sports, we need to talk about it,” […]

“A man is able to undergo a process of lowering hormone levels and then they are allowed to compete so that’s the rules at the moment.

[…] The Human Rights Commission in December backed Hubbard’s inclusion in New Zealand’s Commonwealth Games team.[…]

Of course they did because they don’t care about women’s right to compete against other biological women in a fair competition. The NZ HRC is nothing more than a virtue signalling waste of taxpayers’ money.
