plans to release new guidelines for transgender athletes within two months focused on safety, fairness and inclusion. All sports would need to decide for themselves where the “sweet spot” between those virtues is. The safety element is likely to be a key factor in some sports, especially contact sports like
, which banned trans women from elite games in late 2020 over safety concerns.Tangentmisgendered Read more: Forbes »

🤦🏻♀️ There's a line and we've crossed it. las personas no binarias pueden identificarse tanto hombre como mujer, como ninguno o como un género intermedio. Entonces en las Olimpiadas un hombre puede identificarse mujer y ganar la medalla de oro en levantamiento de pesas, boxeo, natación, etc. atletas mujeres ya fueron🤬
So wrong If I were an actual woman in that event I wouldn't take part as a protest. This is one of the dumbest things I've ever seen. New Zealand’s motto: “We’ll do whatever it takes to win.” Making history for all the wrong reasons & stealing the rightful place of a real woman/girl that trained her whole life for the Olympics. Woke people talk about misogyny all the time. Allowing this was TRULY misogynistic
TV ratings down 44%. Crap like this applauded on NBC news outlets. Allowed announcers to be political. I’m not watching… send a message loud & clear. No thanks Bullshit. Very Good..................
Transgender weightlifter becomes focus of inclusion versus fairness debateOn Monday, the 43-year-old New Zealander will become the first openly transgender athlete to compete in the Olympics. Worth having a bet on him winning 😐 I don’t have a problem with this but if she can participate, why can’t the swimmers who are black wear the swimming caps that allow for room for their natural hair? Athletic events are centered on fair play with everyone playing by the same rules. When one team or athlete has an unfair advantage, that impacts the integrity of the entire competition.
shame This is going to backfire. By pleasing 0,01% we ignore the impact on the rest 99,99% I don’t pertain to a political party but when the basic evolutionary staple & scientific fact of “biological sex” itself becomes contentious, why are those same people surprised when others don’t follow the science about masks or vaccines? Seems to me sadly science is politicized
He should not compete against women , where are the “feminist” claiming gender equality. One step back when it comes to women fairness and rights. “Thank you LGTB “ Meet the cheat At least it's an equal playing field... They don't count. That’s gay
Who is Laurel Hubbard? Weightlifter and first transgender athlete to compete at OlympicsThe New Zealander is set to take the stage as the first openly transgender athlete at an Olympic Games, competing in the women's +87kg weightlifting event. So, a man is competing against women. Equality prevails! That´s ridiculous. i cant seem to find odds on it winning, i wonder why, allthe other events are there to bet on, but not thisone for some reason.
Dudes winning women’s sports. Amazing. Bring back sanity to the Olympics or it’s over Who took over forbes and turned it into a woke joke? I used to be a huge fan...now you just publish chewed bubblegum. I love my trans friends and even they think this is anti women. The article itself list a lot of cases of 'Transgender making history'. They're all cases of men competing physically against women. Correct me if I'm wrong, but can we see any case where the other way around is true If not, then I have trouble seeing that as equal. Just asking
But smoking weed will get you disqualified. No wonder Olympic ratings are in the shitter this year. Olympics are a farce now! 🥴🤢🤮 So now that this is ok, we should expect to have all sports be unisex competitions, right? Article is a joke. Way to be pro-mysogynistic Esto es un chiste!! Another Case And Point.. IF An All Transgender Basketball Team Want's To Go Professional In The WNBA? They Will MOP THE FLOOR With Any Born Woman's Basketball Team In The WNBA. And? People Will Go And See Them. Devaluing The Women In Women's Basketball. But? You Asked For It...
