Over the weekend , powertlifter Mary Gregory, a biological man who identifies as a woman and thus is to be regarded as transgender, set the Masters world records for women’s squat, women’s bench press, and women’s deadlift. Mary has testicles and a penis. Presumably all she would need to compete in a male weightlifting competition is a new name, and an announcement that the he turned she now identifies as a male again.
An exhilarated Mary wrote on Instagram,
“What a day, 9 for 9! Masters world squat record, open world bench record, masters world dl record, and masters world total record!” Mary Gregory posted on Instagram. Gregory thanked the Raw Powerlifting Federation. “As a transgender lifter I was unsure what to expect going into this meet and everyone – all the spotters, loaders, referees, staff, meet director, all made me welcome and treated me as just another female lifter- thank you!”
I’m happy for you, Mary. Your cheating was allowed. Be proud. You go…girl.
Former British Olympic swimmer Sharron Davies decided to speak the truth, and risk being tarred as a bigot, tweeting tweeting:
This is a trans woman a male body with male physiology setting a world record & winning a woman’s event in America in powerlifting. A woman with female biology cannot compete.. it’s a pointless unfair playing field.
Of course it is. If is also clear why organizations and women are allowing this Bizarro World Athletic Association development: it’s instersectionality, stupid! All leftist cant is linked, so women have to allow women’s sports to be destroyed for the greater good, or risk losing their Better Than Men Because We Care membership card. Meanwhile, weak-kneed administrators who run sports organizations lack the courage and integrity to stand up the Relentless Woke, even at their most transparently absurd.
The more extreme progressivism gets, the more it defies reality and common sense, the more stark the liberal base’s dilemma becomes. They have to choose between mandatory positions they know are wrong and even insane, and being branded as apostates by their own peer group. All cults work this way. Women’s sports are a fractal of a much greater problem.
