Top Transgender Weightlifter: I Have No Advantage Over The Biological Women I Beat

Top Transgender Weightlifter: I Have No Advantage Over The Biological Women I Beat, by Amanda Prestigiacomo.

A top male-to-female transgender weightlifter in New Zealand says he has no physical advantages over the women he beats in competitions.

Speaking to Newshub on Friday, decorated weightlifter Laurel Hubbard, who “transitioned” to female four years ago, said there’s no “fundamental” difference between a biological male and his female competitors, and to suggest otherwise would be “disrespectful” to the women Hubbard defeats in said competitions. …

As noted by Reuters, Hubbard, 39, recently took home two silvers in the women’s World Weightlifting Championships, placing behind only Sarah Robles, an American. …

“He met requirements set by the International Weightlifting Federation and International Olympic Committee to compete as a woman, given that he met the testosterone level threshold 12 months prior to competition,” notes The Daily Caller. …

Hubbard was formally a men’s weightlifting champ pre-transition.

You’d think some PC fantasies would be just too obvious to deny, but people under the spell of PC will deny almost anything.
