Olympics To Openly Allow 'Transgender' Athletes to Cheat...
Men and women are different. There, I just committed hate-speech. The fact remains, regardless of the current social cause du jour (see Dear Transgender Fallon Fox: No, You Don’t Get To Beat Up Women… and Strength Expert Exposes Politically Incorrect Truth Regarding Women in Combat…). The science is settled. Yet officials at the Olympics are planning on allowing athletes to cheat by choosing which gender they're going to compete as...
The International Olympic Committee received proposed guidelines in November from its 'Consensus Meeting on Sex Reassignment and Hyperandrogenism', which allow for broader policies that would include transgender athletes. Olympic officials have not confirmed the new guidelines, which have already been adopted by other regulatory sports organizations, but the policy is available on the organization's website. The policy change would be in line with NCAA standards in the United States, which allow male-to-female and female-to-male transgender athletes to compete without having gender reassignment surgery, according to ESPN.
The current Olympic rules acknowledge transgender athletes' right to compete, but with specific provisions under the Stockholm Consensus, which was adopted in 2004. The policies, adopted before the Athens Olympics, say transgender athletes have to have gender reassignment surgery and have legal recognition of the gender they were assigned at birth. They also have to have undergone at least two years of hormone replacement therapy after surgery.
The proposed new rules would allow transgender athletes to compete after one year of hormone replacement therapy and no surgery is required.
A few key takeaways:
Remember when the argument from the left was that "the science wasn't yet settled" and that if the participant undergoes hormone replacement therapy for years, along with gender-reassiggment surgery, that the difference was negligible? Yeah, they're not even trying to argue that anymore. Because in this instance, only one year of hormone replacement therapy is needed and NO SURGERY IS REQUIRED. Politically correct activists have basically opened the floodgates with "Yeah, we don't care about science. We don't care about unfair advantages. We only care about feelings. Deal with it."
Then they sue you.
The second takeaway is... hm, hold on let me look at my notes.
No, not many other takeaways. Basically, the Olympic committee is considering doing away with all of modern science, facts and data in order to support the feelings of a very small, delusional fraction of the population. Hope you like severe concussions because they're coming soon to the Olympics near you. For context, below is a gif of Alexander Karelin, the greatest Greco Roman wrestler the world has ever seen.
Under this current proposal, that Russian monster could pop estrogen pills for one year, slap on a wig and compete against your daughter at the games in Rio. Sound like a party?
Looks like I should start training for the women's Olympic lifting competition...
