Is weightifting not like boxing anyway, weight categories and all that?the irony of it all is that the trans athletes are probably the only ones competing honestly.
I missed this post last weekend, but a lot of stuff surfaced on twitter after a New Zealand trans weightlifter was legally banned from competing in womens sport.
Weightlifting, where the most effective way to cheat is to take testosterone, a fucking male hormone.
So we have trans athletes who are 'too masculine' competing against non-trans athletes who want to be more masculine.
I get that trans athletes is a very complicated thing, but high-level competitive sport is so fucking immoral, to me, trans athletes are like a breath of fresh air.
It's more or less what GB News thinks is important at this point. WAR ON WOKEIt's what the twitter mob thinks is what's important.
mmm, I guess. The entire thing is a house of cards anyway isn't it? It's not like everyone else is on some equal footing considering we all have different bodies from day one. Humm.Yeah but an 80kg cis man, or trans woman is likely to be stronger than an 80kg cis woman
another part of my point is that in elite sport, athletes do whatever they can to get a physical advantage over their opponents. That quite often involves cheating.I think part of Scutter's point is that trans and non binary folks will always be under more scrutiny and have additional rules to follow.
That Caster Semenya, a cis woman, was banned because she had naturally high levels of testosterone is outrageous beyond belief.
I feel a bit sorry for the manager who had to put our the statement explaining the Korean part of this. 15% isn't enough.
They've spent something like 150 grand altering their face to look like a member of BTS. That's not the sort of thing an person who is ok doesso, whatever else about any other identity-politics stuff, I’d sort of be worried about the idea that a dude in their thirties is saying this kind of thing. like maybe he’s not ok.
