It’s a headline you’re starting to see pretty often: transgender women — that is, biological men — are shattering records in women’s competitive sports.
Well, of course they are. Their subjective identity issues aside, these biological men are still bringing in their larger muscles, thicker bone density, and higher levels of testosterone with them. Even with the bodily mutilation and drugs that comprise transition therapy, there are some things surgeons just can’t change.
Because of this, we’ve seen women get their faces beaten in at mixed martial arts competitions. We’ve seen very hard working women who have trained their entire lives come in second place in weight lifting, because event organizers caved into political pressure to be more inclusive.
It’s really alarming how many people who call themselves feminists don’t see any issue with this — though, to be fair, many of them do. Men are essentially stepping into women spaces and stealing victories away from them. If this isn’t anti-woman, we don’t know what is.
