More Power to Transgender Powerlifters By Mrs Vera West
Yes, identity politics and postmodern whatever is reaching its “logical conclusion,” as the various ideologies start to swallow each other whole. Take this little example from the wild world of transgender sport:
“On Sunday, a biological man who identifies as a woman took the Masters world records for women's squat, women's bench press, and women's deadlift. A female Olympian responded by condemning the "pointless, unfair playing field" where biological women are beaten by biological men who identify as transgender women. "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!" Transgender activists may celebrate these world records, but former British Olympic swimmer Sharron Davies condemned the basic unfairness of biological men competing with biological women.”
Wait, if sex and gender are social constructions, then so are muscles, steel weights and even gravity for that matter. Thus, there can be no valid objection to what some call “males” competing with “females” because neither category are objectively real according to modern sociology. Oh, and modern socialistic sociology is not real either by its own terms.
