The 2020 Tokyo Olympics - this is the official name despite the postponement - will be the first in which male athletes who claim to 'feel like women', authorised by the IOC in deference to the ideology of gender identity, will participate in the female categories.

In Japangoverned almost uninterruptedly since the 1950s by the conservative and pronatalist LDP (Liberal Democratic Party or Jimintō) lhe situation regarding transhumanism is different from that in Western countries.

However, gender identity activists are present, well organised and well funded, and they are also trying to leverage the "transgender open" Olympics in order to passing a proposal for an "LGBT law". which, under the pretext of 'combating discrimination', would institutionalise gender identity and self-determination.

As reports of 'trans-identified' men in women's prisons begin to appear in the international media, detransitionerathletes deprived of trophies and scholarships by men who 'feel like women', The Japanese public, on the other hand, is totally unaware of the true aims of gender identity ideology. And unfortunately, local feminists are also distracted and silent.

Linda Blade, former Canadian athletics champion and sports educatorwho saw this phenomenon take hold in his country earlier than elsewhere, wrote a letter to the organisers of the Olympic Games and the Japanese people, so that they are warned of the bomb that is about to go off in their own country, with the help of, among others, the IOC admitting men into women's sports.

ON THE OLYMPIC GAMES AND INTEGRITY:

Why allow men to compete with women?

By Linda Blade, PhD, sports performance professional

Dear Olympic officials and dear Japanese,

The modern Olympic Games were conceived as a celebration of excellence on a level playing field, where sporting competition is based on merit and is not influenced by social status or cultural heritage.

Unfortunately, in 2015, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) has decided that the human rights of some athletes take precedence over those of others.

Without extensive discussion and without informing those concerned, the IOC decided to allow male athletes to compete with female athletes, as long as they self-identify as women.

It is scandalous and unjust!

As you can see from the Olympic records, the male body has a huge advantage over the female body.

There is a scientific reason for the difference in male performance. The physical advantage of men ranges from 10% to 160% depending on the activity and sport. The male body is in fact:

- 20 to heavier 40%

- 30-60% more powerful (especially stronger in the upper body)

- Additional explosive power 33%

- Fastest 10-15% in the race

- Stronger 20% kicks

- Stronger 160% punches

- The scrum force (scrum) in rugby increases by 40-60%

- Maximum oxygen uptake 20-40

- Launch 20-30% stronger

- Weight 30-50% extra

- Extremely stiff tendons

The IOC claims that if male athletes bring their testosterone levels below 10nmol/L (5nmol/L for athletics) for a year, all these benefits will disappear and will be able to compete on an equal footing with women.

This statement is patently false.

All studies that measured male muscle strength before and after testosterone reduction showed no significant decrease of the advantage.

Of course, any Japanese citizen understands all this even without the scientific data.

How can men reduce the size of their bones and bodies to the size of women!

How can men reduce the size of their heart and lungs to make their oxygen-carrying capacity equal to that of a woman!

The IOC's position on this issue is absurd. It is an insult to women, to sport and to the Olympics themselves.

The IOC amplifies this insult by assuming that only a few male athletes would have wanted to take advantage of this regulation to compete with women.

This statement is also false. In recent years, there has been a increasing number of men in sport who identify themselves as 'transgender'. and it has been documented that they have already deprived female athletes of opportunities to participate and win.

The IOC insists that all spaces for female athletes be open to these men, whether it be changing rooms, bathrooms or accommodation.

The time has come to say to the COI: "PLEASE STOP!".

The IOC must immediately stop this insane unconditional consent to so-called 'transgender rights' policies.

A drastic policy such as this, which threatens the integrity of women's Olympic sports categories.i, requires careful consideration, long-term study and extensive consultation.

Nobody wants the Tokyo 2020 Olympics to be ridiculed and shamed as the 'historic' moment when a man stood on the Olympic podium that belonged to a woman.

Now is the time for all media covering the Olympics to tell this story and to convince the IOC that it is making a mistake, so as not to inflict such a shameful record on the Tokyo Olympics.

The people of Japan deserve an 'Olympics of Integrity'. after spending so much money and energy to make the Olympics a success in a troubled year.

We wish Japan all the best during the coming months of preparation.

We will walk alongside the Japanese to support the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.

Perché permettere a uomini di competere con le donne? Lettera al Comitato Olimpico

ON THE OLYMPIC GAMES AND INTEGRITY:

Why allow men to compete with women?

By Linda Blade, PhD, Sport Performance Professional

May 4, 2021

Dear Olympic Games Officials and people of Japan:

The modern Olympic Games was envisioned as a festival where sports competition would remain a merit-based domain where excellence could be celebrated on a level playing field without bias towards social rank or cultural heritage. 

Unfortunately, in 2015, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) decided that the human rights of some athletes supersede the rights of others.

Without consulting broadly or notifying many, the IOC decided that male athletes could self-identify as women and would then be allowed to compete against female athletes.

This is outrageous and unfair!

As anyone can see from Olympic record charts, the male body has an enormous advantage over the female body.

And there is a logical reason for this difference in male performance. Males have a physical advantage that ranges from 10%-160% depending upon the activity and the sport:

  • Heavier by 20-40%
  • Stronger by 30-60% [Especially stronger in UPPER BODY activities].
  • More Explosive by 33%
  • Running 10-15%
  • Kicking 20%
  • Punching 160%
  • Scrum forces in Rugby 40-60%
  • VO2max 20-40%
  • Throwing 20-30%
  • Weights 30-50%
  • Tendons much stiffer

The IOC contends that all these advantages disappear and the female playing field will be level IF the male athlete ensures that his testosterone level remains below 10 nmol/L for one year.

This assertion is patently false!

Every single study in history that has measured male strength both before and after testosterone reduction shows that there is no significant reduction of the male strength advantage.

Of course, any citizen of Japan could figure out the same thing without science.

How does a man make his bones and body smaller to match female size?!

How does he reduce the size of his heart and lungs so that oxygen transport capacity is reduced to female level?!

The IOC position on this matter is absurd. It is an insult to women, to sport and to the Olympic Games themselves.

The IOC amplifies this insult by assuming that very few male athletes would want to take advantage of this policy and compete with the women.

This claim is also false. Over the past few years, the world of sport has documented a growing number of males, calling themselves "transgender", robbing female athletes of opportunities on teams and podiums.

They insist that all female athlete spaces are open to these men - whether they be in change rooms, in toilets or in athlete accommodations.

It is time for the good people of the world to tell the IOC in 2021 to PLEASE STOP!

The IOC should SUSPEND this insane "Transgender Consensus" immediately.

A drastic policy that threatens the integrity of the women's Olympic sports category requires in-depth scrutiny, long-term study, and broad-ranging consultation.

No person on planet earth wants to see Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games be mocked and shamed as the 'historic' moment when a male stood on the female Olympic podium.

It is time for all media surrounding the Olympic Games to tell this story so that the IOC will be convinced to ensure that this infamy is not visited upon the people of Japan.

Japanese people deserve an Olympics of Integrity after exhausting so many funds and energy in making this festival work in a most problematic year.

We wish Japan ALL THE BEST over these next few months of preparation.

We stand with Japan for the preservation of these 2020 Tokyo Games.

「オリンピック競技と公平について-なぜ男性と女性の競争を認めるのか?-」

Dear Olympic Games Officials and people of Japan:        

オリンピック関係者の皆様、そして日本の皆様。

The modern Olympic Games was envisioned as a festival where sports competition would remain a merit-based domain where excellence could be celebrated on a level playing field without bias towards social rank or cultural heritage. 

近代オリンピックは、スポーツ競技が実力主義の領域であり続け、社会的地位や文化的遺産に偏ることなく、公平な場で卓越性を称えることができる祭典として構想されました。

Unfortunately, in 2015, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) decided that the human rights of some athletes supersede the rights of others.

しかし残念なことに、2015年、国際オリンピック委員会(IOC)は、一部の選手の人権が他の選手の人権に優先すると決定しました。

Without consulting broadly or notifying many, the IOC decided that male athletes could self-identify as women and would then be allowed to compete against female athletes.

広く意見を聞いたり、多くの人に知らせたりすることなく、国際オリンピック委員会は「自称女性」つまり男性に生まれ、戸籍上では女性に性別を変更した男性を、女性の競技に参加させることを許したのです。

This is outrageous and unfair!

これはとてつもなく不公平なことです。

As anyone can see from Olympic record charts, the male body has an enormous advantage over the female body.

歴代オリンピックの記録表を見ればわかるように、男性と女性は体の構造が異なり、スポーツ上では男性の体のほうが圧倒的に有利なのです。

And there is a logical reason for this difference in male performance. Males have a physical advantage that ranges from 10%-160% depending upon the activity and the sport:

男性のパフォーマンスの違いには、論理的な理由があります。男性の身体的優位性は、活動内容やスポーツによって10%から160%の幅があります。

  • Heavier by 20-40%
    • 体重が20~40%重い
  • Stronger by 30-60% [Especially stronger in UPPER BODY activities].
    • 30~60%の力強さ(特に上半身の活動で強い)
  • More Explosive by 33%
    • 爆発力 33%増
  • Running 10-15%
    • ランニング 10-15%増
  • Kicking 20%
    • キック 20%増
  • Punching 160%
    • パンチング 160%増
  • Scrum forces in Rugby 40-60%
    • ラグビーのスクラム力 40~60%増
  • VO2max 20-40%
    • 最大酸素摂取量20~40%増
  • Throwing 20-30%
    • スローイング 20-30%増
  • Weights 30-50%
    • ウェイト 30-50%増
  • Tendons much stiffer
    • 腱が非常に硬い

The IOC contends that all these advantages disappear and the female playing field will be level IF the male athlete ensures that his testosterone level remains below 10 nmol/L (for athletics 5 nmol/L) for one year.

国際オリンピック委員会によると、男性選手が1年間、テストステロン値を10nmol/L(陸上競技では5nmol/L)以下に維持すれば、これらの利点はすべてなくなり、女性の競技場は平等になると主張しています。

This assertion is patently false!

この主張は明らかに間違っています。

Every single study in history that has measured male strength both before and after testosterone reduction shows that there is no significant reduction of the male strength advantage.

テストステロン低下の前後で男性の筋力を測定した歴史上のすべての研究で、男性の筋力の優位性が大幅に低下することはないと示されています。

Of course, any citizen of Japan could figure out the same thing without science.

もちろん、日本国民であれば誰でも科学なしに同じことがわかるでしょう。

How does a man make his bones and body smaller to match female size?!

男性はどうやって女性のサイズに合わせて骨や体を小さくするのか!?

How does he reduce the size of his heart and lungs so that oxygen transport capacity is reduced to female level?!

どうやって心臓や肺のサイズを小さくして、酸素運搬能力を女性並みにするのか!?

The IOC position on this matter is absurd. It is an insult to women, to sport and to the Olympic Games themselves.

この問題に関する国際オリンピック委員会の立場は不条理です。これは、女性、スポーツ、そしてオリンピックそのものへの侮辱です。

The IOC amplifies this insult by assuming that very few male athletes would want to take advantage of this policy and compete with the women.

国際オリンピック委員会は、このポリシーを利用して女性と競争したいと考える男性選手はほとんどいないと仮定することで、この侮辱を増幅させています。

This claim is also false. Over the past few years, the world of sport has documented a growing number of males, calling themselves "transgender", robbing female athletes of opportunities on teams and podiums.

この主張も誤りです。ここ数年、スポーツの世界では、「トランスジェンダー」と名乗る男性が増えており、女性選手からチームや表彰台に上がる機会を奪っていることが記録されています。

They insist that all female athlete spaces are open to these men - whether they be in change rooms, in toilets or in athlete accommodations.

彼らは、更衣室であれ、更衣室であれトイレであれ、選手の宿泊施設であれ、すべての女性選手のスペースがこれらの男性に開放されていると主張しています。

It is time for the good people of the world to tell the IOC in 2021 to PLEASE STOP!

世界中の善良な人々が、2021年の国際オリンピック委員会に「やめてください」と言うべき時が来ました。

The IOC should SUSPEND this insane "Transgender Consensus" immediately.

国際オリンピック委員会はトランスジェンダー・アクティビストの非常識な要求への揺るぎない支持を直ちに停止すべきです。

A drastic policy that threatens the integrity of the women's Olympic sports category requires in-depth scrutiny, long-term study, and broad-ranging consultation.

女性のオリンピックスポーツカテゴリーの整合性を脅かすような思い切った政策には、綿密な精査、長期的な研究、広範な協議が必要です。

No person on planet earth wants to see Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games be mocked and shamed as the 'historic' moment when a male stood on the female Olympic podium.

地球上の誰もが、2020年の東京オリンピックが、男性が女性のオリンピック表彰台を奪いそこに立った「歴史的な」瞬間として嘲笑され、恥をかかされることを望んでいません。

It is time for all media surrounding the Olympic Games to tell this story so that the IOC will be convinced to ensure that this infamy is not visited upon the people of Japan.

今こそ、オリンピックを取り巻くすべてのメディアがこのストーリーを伝え、国際オリンピック委員会が日本の人々にこのような不名誉なことが起こらないように説得する時です。

Japanese people deserve an Olympics of Integrity after exhausting so many funds and energy in making this festival work in a most problematic year.

問題の多い年に多くの資金とエネルギーを費やしてオリンピックを成功させた日本の人々には、「誠実なオリンピック」にふさわしいと思います。

We wish Japan ALL THE BEST over these next few months of preparation.

私たちは、これから数ヶ月間の準備期間中、日本が最善を尽くすことを願っています。

We stand with Japan for the preservation of these 2020 Tokyo Games.

Belgium, new feminicide law. To be studied
In Europe, male violence is the leading cause of death for women between the ages of 16 and 44. Belgium equips itself with a new law that for the first time legally defines feminicides in order to develop policies based on official statistics. Keeping in mind that violence is a device of male domination
Stop the slaughter of women. This is the meaning of the new 'law on the prevention of and fight against feminicides, gender-based crimes and the violence that precedes them' adopted at first reading in the Council of Ministers on 25 October in Belgium. Deposed by the Secretary of State for Gender Equality, Sarah Schlitz (Ecolo/Verdi), the framework law for the first time legally defines feminicides in order to develop combat policies based on official statistics. And in [...]

England: new guidelines for 'trans' minors
While Spain is about to approve the horrifying Ley Trans, which allows the transition of girls from the age of 12 even if their parents oppose it, the English health service closes once and for all with the so-called pharmacological 'affirmative approach' (puberty blockers) practised for years and points to psychological treatment as the priority route. And in Italy? For the Italian Society of Paediatrics, these drugs do not cause any problems and their effects are completely 'reversible', a fact denied by several studies
The English health service (NHS) has published a new draft of guidelines for the treatment of children with gender dysphoria (full text here), pending the results of the Cass Review, an independent enquiry commissioned by the British health minister and led by paediatrician Hilary Cass (see here), which will lead to a complete restructuring of services dedicated to gender non-conforming children. After the closure of the Tavistock clinic -which we told you about here-, NHS puts a definitive end to the so-called [...]

'Destroy women's rights': JK Rowling against the Scottish premier and her trans law
As in Spain, feminism in Scotland fights against a law wanted by First Minister Nicola Sturgeon introducing gender self-determination without any medical diagnosis and lowering the age for access to 16. And this time too, the Harry Potter author stands by women, girls and children
JK Rowling takes a photo of herself wearing a t-shirt that reads 'Nicola Sturgeon, destroyer of women's rights' to support women protesting in front of the Scottish Parliament against the controversial gender recognition reform bill wanted by Scotland's First Minister. Activists from For Women Scotland gathered in front of the Scottish Parliament this morning for a demonstration against the bill promoted by Sturgeon, which would make gender self-determination easier - we have [...]

The Iranians are fighting for us too
Women in Iran are oppressed, violated and killed precisely because of their bodies as women. And their revolt could free everyone and everyone. Is'the woke West of'gender identity and 'freedom of the veil' ready to understand and support this revolution that blows for us too? Woman, life, freedom
In the uncertain and ever-changing geopolitical order of our time, in the midst of a global political agenda that from right to left forgets women, betraying, albeit in different ways, female exclusivity and the richness of sexual difference, the struggle of Iranian women has something epic, something moving. The killing of Mahsa Amini shows how the issue of the 'veil as freedom' is the quintessence of intellectual dishonesty, of logical fallacy, of an age-old lie. To 22-year-old Mahsa, the desire to 'feel the [...]

US, gay couple sues: surrogacy is a 'right', must be paid for by health insurance
The two men's claim aims to have the fact that they do not have a womb recognised as a 'disability': an absurd, envious and revealing claim. If they win in court all over America insurance companies and employers would have to reimburse gestations for other for men
A gay couple filed a lawsuit in New York labour court demanding that their employer-provided insurance company pay all the costs of the surrogate uterus for them, in order to ensure 'equal access to fertility treatment'. For all intents and purposes, they are demanding that a gay male couple become a protected category under the law because they are both without a womb and without access to one. If they win the case, in all [...]

SPAIN: SOCIALISTS AGAINST THE TRANS LEY
Unlike their Italian counterparts from the PD and the left who stand for free gender identity, the Spanish progressives break with the PSOE's transactivist policies in defence of women and children. In their manifesto the excellent arguments against what, if passed, could be the worst transactivist law in the world
Breaking with its party, the PSOE, and sending a signal to the women of the European left, who are generally aligned in defence of transactivist diktatism, the Federación de Mujeres Progresistas launches a courageous manifesto against the Trans Law wanted by the governing majority in Spain (PSOE and Podemos) and being approved by an emergency procedure, without an effective parliamentary debate or a wide public discussion. The initiative also comes in response to the clamorous break between historical Spanish feminism -united in the Contraborrado cartel- [...].
