Men can now compete with women at Olympics

From Kevin McCullough at Townhall:

The International Olympic Committee (which has had an impossible task of keeping performance enhancing drugs out of the systems of their athletes) has now sanctioned that men (complete with genitalia given at birth) will be allowed to compete against women.

The IOC believes that men who lower their testosterone level by a certain percent for a defined length of time have become sufficiently “female enough” to get to run, race, box, lift, jump, skate, etc against exclusively other women.More.

Reality check: Feminism was never about anything except fourth-trimester abortion anyway. Never thought I’d live to see the day I could prove it for sure.

  • Well this makes sense… for the Olympics I mean.

    • Justin St.Denis

      This marks the end of the Olympics. Athletes – genuine athletes – tend to know there are differences between males and females. No genuine athletes will participate in the Olympics in the near future. The Olymoics will become just another freakshow.

    Have they considered what this looks like to 1.5 billion Muslims? Could we be heading for a showdown? Baa baa baaaaaa…..I mean don’t they now they (Muslims) will look at us like we are weak?
    They say, the west is weak, Don’t cha know. The great Satan celebrates gods abominations…..the west must be destroyed.
    Yes, we ARE being set up for a clash of civilizations, the likes of which have not been seen since Rome destroyed Carthage. (The entire annihilation of a culture.)
    Going to be fun!!

    It’s time to boycott the Olympics.

    • Justin St.Denis

      You are WAY too mild…..

  • Billy Bob Thornton

    But to me this just seems like a one way street in that women can only compete normally in the male events. The reason why I say this is think about Wickenheiser in hockey. To me there is no real equality in society but women gaining more power than men. True equality would actually give a real balance and not use favouritism to have one sex being promoted all the time while men are never given support groups or anything. As a centrist I have always noticed this. As for the Olympics there is a reason why men and women participate in their own events. It is because men are stronger than women and can hurt them. There is a serious lack of common sense in society. I do not call this political correctness but a lack of common sense and not knowing that one sex is obviously more stronger than another. This is not a comment to attack women but it is stating the obvious.

      PC is at war with common sense.

      • Billy Bob Thornton

        For me, the label PC is only used by the right against the left when in fact there are no-go zones which ideologies never wish to touch which is gun issues and others. Which is why to me there is either right or wrong or somewhere in the middle, but for me this Olympic issue is just plain wrong and I believe that events should remain as is. There is no black/white mentality in society. Societies need to realize what they truly want.

        • truepeers

          The problem with the term PC is that what it represents is not primarily or specifically a political phenomenon but an ethical one, the deference to the assumed “victim” who is imagined to be (virtually) present in every conversation, private or public. BTW, when i say “ethical” i do not necessarily mean sane.

          “Which is why to me there is either right or wrong or somewhere in the middle, but for me this Olympic issue is just plain wrong and I believe that events should remain as is. There is no black/white mentality in society.”

          But Billy Bob, maybe it’s “somewhere in the middle.”
          Then again maybe its grey.

      • Justin St.Denis

        Has been for a couple of decades now…..

  • WhiteRabbit3

    Till now, supporting “transgendered rights” has been the politically correct thing to do, and opposition has been denounced as bigotry. Only a few feminists such as Camille Paglia have questioned this, and suffered severe blow back for her efforts.
    But should (real) female athletes start finding themselves displaced on teams and podiums by transgendered athletes then there’s going to be a lot of bitterness, and I can not see this support continuing.

  • Martin B

    So now every third-rate loser who can’t make the grade against his fellow male athletes can horn in on female athletes and take away the qualification spots and medals they’ve spent all those years struggling for. Swell.

  • CodexCoder

    I stopped watching the Olympics years ago. It is no longer about amateurs with doping, sponsorships and now this nonsense. Stick a fork in the whole process – it is done.

  • Alain

    I see this as the chickens coming home to roost. For how many years have boys’ sport teams been forced to allow girls in the name of feminist rights. We saw the same thing with every male club and organisation while males remained excluded from female clubs and organisations. Even the scouts got infected with it to be followed up with being forced to accept homosexuals as scout leaders. So now it is the time of the trannies it seems.

  • Watch as female athletes (the real ones) howl over this.

    Get your favourite snacks and beverages, ladies and gentlemen. This might be fun.

  • Frances

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t Susan Nattrass compete against men all the time. And win.

    • Martin B

      Athletes are supposed to challenge themselves to do their best against the best. That’s the whole point. A women who competes against men in any sport is REALLY challenging herself. A man who isn’t good enough to compete against other men is not challenging himself.

      The Ontario Hockey League is reserved for junior players aged 16 to 20. When Connor McDavid was 15, he was granted “Exceptional Player” status by Hockey Canada and allowed to play on an OHL team. He is now playing for the NHL at 19:

      Would it be OK for a 21 year old who wasn’t good enough to make the cut for the NHL play in the OHL instead? Of course not – he would be slumming and taking a spot away from a worthy junior player. Same principle.
