New Zealand’s Selection of Transgender Weightlifter Raises Questions of Fairness

New Zealand has named transgender weightlifter Laurel Hubbard to participate in the Commonwealth Games. As Gavin, Hubbard was a national junior record holder in the male 105kg class. As Laurel, Hubbard will compete in the female 90kg-plus division.

That’s a man!

    Feminism links up to intersectionality, only to find that — between Islam and transgender rights — women are actually worse off.

    • Bla Bla

      And yet the feminists are still silent – all go to show you that they are only concerned with their marxist ideology instead of protecting the rights of women.

      • David Murrell

        And pro-trans ideology. Male trans will devastate women’s sports. The Olympics will become a laughing stock, and I for one will welcome the black comedy.

        • Bla Bla

          Indeed, this is apparently what they wanted – even if it wasn’t, but the law of unintended consequences is always at play. I believe that the universe/God /Creator has a wicked sense of humor.

    • Never saw it comin;)

      If I had to compete against that…I’d walk off. There isn’t a point in it. Let the man that thinks he’s a woman compete all by his lonesome.

    • WildWelshWoman

      This is the REAL war on women.

      • Tooth&Claw

        Oh make no mistake, it’s a war on men too. They want to force men to date these men pretending to be women.

        • Bla Bla

          Indeed – refusal to do so means you are transphobic. LOL How many words can they possibly make up, it’s just like being at kindergarten again.

        • DMB

          I saw one of these trans individuals yesterday at a Wal Mart. The individual had the body of a football player masquerading as a women. Fantasy can be a dangerous thing.

          • Tooth&Claw

            Most of these men that want to appear as women, don’t appear much like women at all. The ones that can actually pass as an attractive female are few indeed.

    Why is it that a jihadist will self-identify as a muslm but that’s no true to the Progressives because you can’t be a muslim just by saying it .

    But this man can be a women just by saying it ???
    We had 2 white people for sure that self-identified as Black and got away with it.

    • fedupwithinsanity

      I have had such a discussion with an enlightened progressive who corrected me. Violent muslims who self-identify are not real muslims because islam is a religion of peace. Got it?

      • Watchman

        In logic this is known as the “No True Scotman” fallacy, but since logic, reason and consistency is considered bid’ah (unwelcome innovation) in islam, you don’t get very far in a debate with a muslim pointing this out.

      • Gary

        They got to the progressive …..didn’t they ?
        We’re told that people are BORN gay and islam is a religion of Peace but now the HRC tells us people can turn gay or a man can claim he’s a women .

        They really are twisting them self in knots to defy the truth , just like our record Cold winter of 2014-15 where 3 homeless men in Toronto froze to death because it was the sign of Global Warming .

    • Watchman

      Just remember that Gays are genetically predestined to be gay, whereas sex/gender is purely a matter of choice and it has nothing to do with genes – at least according to the SJWs.

      • Gary

        So I can claim that I’m gay but then identify as a lesbian women and then start to bed hot chicks but use the Lesbian card that i can rape her as man since I’m a women and I like other women but have a penis for now.
        We have the rapist that said he was a women and is now in a women’s jail where he assaulted a few awaiting the sex change.
        It’s off how the women claiming to be men aren’t getting the Add-a-dick-to-me surgery by the men have it cut off and get implants .

        I think most of these men are cross dressers that want to blend in .

        • Watchman

          Yes, you seem to have ‘got it’.

          I used to use the old joke that I was a lesbian trapped within a man’s body. These days you have people claiming it’s real and not just a joke.

    On this agenda item, the political world is fucking crazy. Never have so few managed to bully so many through access to/influence over political levers. When the backlash occurs, it is going to get nasty indeed for these people………..

  • Nermal

    Please don’t blame us Kiwis, we think it’s crazy too. No way should this man be representing New Zealand women at any sporting competition.

    • Watchman

      I’ve seen Peter Jackson’s Lord of The Rings movies and thought that the bearded Dwarves were, as Tolkien wrote, indistinguishable as male or female, and so the Kiwis didn’t need makeup to play the Dwarves of both sexes?

  • Hard Little Machine

    I like it. Let them be destroyed by the monster they created.
