Last week, the International Weightlifting Federation modified its criteria for Olympic participants, which has opened up the possibility of male weightlifters who “identify” as women competing against female weightlifters. Take a look at the photo of the leading “trans” weightlifter at the link, and you’ll see why actual women weightlifters (I refuse to use the idiotic term “cisgender” when we already have a term for this: “women”) are alarmed that this will be incredibly unfair to them.
Of course, caring about what these women think and how it would crush their lifelong efforts to be Olympians like a barbell crushes a bug would require the “woke” elites who run these organizations to prioritize women’s rights over trans rights. And in the current trendy pecking order, women come last.
On the plus side, this could finally provide the tipping point at which the public openly rebels against the media, the activists and the Biden Administration with their denials of basic biological science and their attempts to brainwash us all into believing there’s no difference between a woman and a man who “identifies” as a woman. Imagine seeing that Incredible Hulk towering over all the women as “she” power-lifts some huge amount of iron then snatches away the Gold Medal for Best “Female” Weightlifter. That could be broadcast on international TV in front of an audience of billions of outraged and incredulous viewers, providing the starkest example possible of the unfairness and absurdity of the whole trans sports movement.
Frankly, if I were a trans activist, I’d probably be doing everything I could to prevent this rather than pushing for it. This is a “be careful what you wish for” moment if I’ve ever seen one.
