I keep saying it and saying it, but darnitall... make the best women.

//Transgender Wins International Women’s Weightlifting Title

Laurel Hubbard, a 39 year-old transgender who was born male, won her first international women’s weightlifting title in Australia breaking four national records in the process.//

Why do we even bother to segregate sports by sex?

Sex is fungible and a state of mind, after all.

More on the story:

//Olympic Weightlifting New Zealand President Garry Marshall acknowledged the controversy surrounding a man competing in a women's division, but affirmed that he must abide by OWNZ rules.

"She competed as a long time for a man and her efforts were very strong," said Marshall.

"That strength has remained with her, despite testosterone," he continued. "That point is not recognized by the science and some of our competitors would say that's not fair."

Marshall added that they would "act" on "concrete evidence" of advantages for Hubbard if there were any.

"We have to follow the policy of the International Olympic Committee and the International Weightlifting Federation. They do not acknowledge in any way the gender identity of an athlete other than male or female; they're not described as transgender," he said.

In order for Hubbard to compete against women, he "must demonstrate that her total testosterone level in serum has been below 10 [nanomoles per litre] for at least 12 months prior to her first competition," as noted in the International Olympic Committee recommendations for male-to-female transgender athletes.

Under the guise of equality and fairness, numerous women have taken a backseat to males who say they are female in the sports arena. For instance, in June, a high school boy who "identifies" as a female took home all-state honors in Alaska's female track and field division

The mother to one of the girls who was bumped off the podium for the state finals, Jennifer VanPelt, called out the faux "equality."

“At our state track and field meet they award medals and a spot on the podium to the top 4. Allison placed 5th. We had no idea she was running against a male until after the race was over,” VanPelt told Rare. “She was upset. How do you explain to her that not only does she need to train to beat her fellow female athletes now she should also train to beat the males?”

She continued: “I believe parents and athletes alike should be worried. Transgender males being allowed to compete in female events are being afforded an unfair advantage. Males are physically different than females. That’s a scientific fact. Hormones and body modification cannot change that. Today it’s one transgender athlete. Tomorrow it could be half the field," she said.

If the Left continues to get their way, biological girls and women will have no fair place to compete — in the name of "equality" and "fairness," of course. //

Notice the cognitive dissonance on the part of the some of the women athletes, e.g., "well if society calls him a woman, she must be"?
