    Transgender weightlifter breaks record in women’s competition

    "A transgender weightlifter who formerly participated in the men’s division dominated an international competition in her debut on the women’s circuit."

    "Laurel Hubbard of New Zealand took gold in the women’s over 90kg division at the Australian International and set four national records in the process, reported the New Zealand Herald."

    Be cool, remember where you are.
    It's ok if you disagree with me. I can't force you to be right.

    I saw this and the first thing that hit me is how unfair this is to real women. Im not sure but I believe that a man having surgery to be a woman doesnt lose all his strength and if not that is a huge disadvantage to real women competing.

    This blending of genders project of the left is another reason I went right.

    And this wo-man changed in his 30's. He even competed as a man previous to change.

    he probably couldn't win as a man...........the only way he could win was to "cheat"
    This only reduces women............... makes their achievements meaningless

    Good for her.
    "A mature person is one who does not think only in absolutes, who is able to be objective even when deeply stirred emotionally, who has learned that there is both good and bad in all people and all things, and who walks humbly and deals charitably with the circumstances of life, knowing that in this world no one is all-knowing and therefore all of us need both love and charity."

    Probably a few more instances such as this and a reconsidering may take place.

    You say this from your vast experience as a biological woman?
