By now most people have heard of Australian weightlifter Laurel Hubbard, a man who transitioned to a woman at the age of 34 and subsequently qualified as an Olympic weightlifter in the women’s competition. After the controversial entry, Hubbard flamed out of competition Monday. Some breathed a sigh of relief, some touted it as a victory for trans athletes nonetheless. However, that’s only a part of this bizarre story.
The Washington Times ran a column Monday lamenting the “debate” over who qualifies as a woman, particularly in competitive sports. One would think that the issue would be as simple as biology, but it’s 2021 and we’ve officially entered the Anti-Science Ages.
In response to the growing transgender incursion into women’s sports (isn’t it funny that we are not having the conversations about men’s sports), athletic bodies around the world have adjusted their testosterone standards. The thresholds vary from sport to sport, and in a multi-sport competition like the Olympics it was laid bare the outlandish standards that women now face in athletics thanks to a social agenda that aims to erase biological womanhood altogether.
What you’re about to read next is pure insanity.

Hubbard qualified for competition with drugs that raise estrogen levels and suppress testosterone. Sadly, an actual female competitor from South Africa was disqualified from Olympic competition because her natural testosterone levels were too high.
Caster Semenya is the defending 800-meter champion in track and field, but cannot compete in Tokyo because she refuses to ingest unnatural drugs her naturally female body does not need.

Reducing testosterone levels usually involves taking birth control pills, but the 30-year-old Semenya has refused. She said they made her feel sick when she tried them and were “taking the soul out of my body.”
“They want me to take my own system down. I’m not sick. I don’t need drugs. I will never do that,” Semenya told The Guardian in April.

Adding to the injustice is the fact that Semenya is Black. Hubbard, a White athlete, seems to be receiving a lot of attention and support while Semenya has been hung out to dry despite her champion status.
