'Women feel silenced': Female powerlifter lashes out after court ruling forces them to compete against biological males
A court ruled this month that people who were born men can no longer be prevented from competing against people who were born women in powerlifting. The trick is that the people born men need to now identify as a woman to compete against women. Critics say it's not fair, what with the biological advantages men are born with such as elevated testosterone and stronger bone density. On the flip side of that, biology is transphobic.
The unfair advantage is most unfair in a powerlifting competition, which is based on body strength. Olympic Powerlifter April Hutchinson spoke out on Fox News about how the female competitors feel about the ruling: “We’re outraged. We’re angry. We’re hurt. We’re offended. We’re basically every emotion except for happy."
She went on to say, "A lot of women are silenced and feel silenced and that they have no voice, or they’re afraid to speak up in fear of maybe getting kicked out of the federation, to be called names for backlash."

But even when the female competitors win, they lose. In 2021, when powerlifter Laurel Hubbard shattered a glass ceiling by becoming the first transgender powerlifter to choke at the Olympics, the media was less interested in talking to the winners as much as they were interested in talking to the winners about the loser.

Hubbard even won a "sportswoman" of the year award. Beating out other competitors who besides being born women, actually succeeded in their chosen sport. But it's the 2020s. Sports reporters care less about sports as much as they do woke activism.
It's a shame that even in 2023 -- and on International Women's Day, no less -- women are being shamed from speaking their minds. Shameful.
