Tokyo: Tranny Hubbard loses but doesn't let the women win

Paradoxically, 'Laurel's' defeat is more useful to the cause of transhumanism than her victory. The transhumanists will use it to 'prove' that if a tranny couldn't win against women, then it's true that hormones are enough to make a male body 'equal' to a female body.

Gavin "Laurel" Hubbard, as predicted - not only by the IOC but even of the Feminist Post- was eliminated in the women's Olympic weightlifting final +87 kg (super heavyweight)after a failed attempt to lift 120 kg and two failed attempts at 125 kg in the snatch.

The women's weightlifting final curiously was not broadcast live on the official RAI programme, despite being defined as 'of historical importance'. precisely because of the presence of Hubbard "first openly transgender athlete to compete in an Olympic Games in a category of a different gender from the one in which he or she was born"(see here, BBC Sport).

Hubbard, in the All Black uniform of New Zealand, stepped onto the platform of the Tokyo International Forum and with uncertainty tried to lift the red weights, but immediately dropped them behind him, and with a smirk and a flirtatious gesture, as if to say: "It was too difficult, I couldn't do it!", he waved to the audience and walked off the platform with a bow. As if he had done it on purpose.

Paradoxically, thehe defeat of 'Laurel' is more helpful to the cause of transhumanism than his eventual victory. The trans-activists want to use Hubbard's defeat as a way of "To 'prove' that if a trans man could not win against women, then it would be true that the male body with hormones would become equal to that of a woman.

Since the IOC changed its guidelines in 2015 to allow men who say they 'feel like women' to compete at the Olympics in women's categories - and consequently influencing national and local sports federations around the world - sports medicine has had to waste time and resources to prove the obvious: that the male body always has a major sporting advantage over the female.

The IOC recently announced its intention to revise its criticised guidelines on so-called 'trans inclusion' at the Olympics, leaving it up to the individual sports federations to decide. (see here).

Yet we should not only talk about 'science' - which despite manipulation is not in question - but also about rights. I women's rights to have the opportunity to participate in elite sporting competitions, with all the benefits this brings in terms of career and income, and to compete fairly.

Hubbard, who even after renaming himself 'Laurel' kept his powerful male body intact, although by now 43, aged and out of shape from an athletic career, would, if strong enough, have to compete with other men. His invasion of the women's category is not a 'right' but rather a privilege, and he took away the opportunity to participate in the Olympics from a woman, Roviel Detenamo from the Republic of Nauru, a small Pacific island that has already sent eight weightlifters to the Olympics in the past (see here).

Hubbard's defeat only further erodes women's rights and women's sport, deluding the world into thinking that after all 'trans people don't win'... paving the way for a potential host of future trans people in women's competition, not only in niche areas such as weightlifting, but in all other sports.

The other 13 female athletes in the weightlifting final won, but with the inclusion of men, even mediocre ones like Hubbard, all the women lost.

Save Women's Sports!

UK. Cass report: no more affirmative therapy for children with gender-related problems
Pediatrician Hilary Cass' final report on child transitions comes out: offering affirmative therapy was a failure. There is no evidence on the effectiveness of puberty blockers, which should never be prescribed except in rare cases. Hormones of the opposite sex should not be given before the age of 18, and even between 18 and 25 caution should be exercised. A definitive watershed
The long-awaited final report of the Cass Review, an independent review chaired by paediatrician Hilary Cass on public health services for children and young people with 'gender dysphoria', came out this morning. Its final report and recommendations were presented to NHS England. Here are the highlights. The condemnation for affirmative therapy is final, and determined by the absolute lack of evidence that puberty blockers and opposite-sex hormones bring real benefits to children suffering from 'gender incongruence [...]

Hormone therapies on children: doctors' insurances start to run away
The risk of million-dollar claims by minors undergoing irreversible treatment who regret the 'affirmative therapy' is too high: this is why some insurance companies no longer feel like covering 'gender medicine' under their policies
Those who resist the market for the transition of gender non-conforming girls and boys know very well that almost always the turning point - as was the case in the UK with Keira Bell and in the US with Chloe Cole - is the lawsuit brought by a former child-or treated-or with blockers and hormones against the doctors who administered the 'therapy': the detransitioners' side is decisive. Then the game becomes money versus money: the money collected by the gender clinics versus the money they end up [...].

Also in Wyoming stop the transition of minors
It is the 24th US state to ban drug and surgical treatments on the bodies of gender non-conforming girls and boys. Doctors and practitioners who continue to prescribe affirmative therapy will lose their licences. Decisive in the passage of the law was the testimony - and legal action - of detransitioner Chloe Cole. A regulation banning trans-indoctrination in schools was also approved.
From next 1 July, hormone treatments and gender transition surgery of minors will be banned in Wyoming. With the passage of the law, Senate File 99, Wyoming will join 23 other US states, from Alabama to West Virginia, that have banned or severely restricted gender-affirming medicine on minors. Under the law, doctors, pharmacists and other health care providers who provide gender-affirming care could have their licences suspended or revoked. Opposed by Governor Mark Gordon, [...]

The UK has decided: no more puberty blockers for children with dysphoria. It is the ultimate turning point (in memory of Yarden Silveira, 1998-2021, killed by 'sex change')
Not only the stop at the Tavistock Clinic: no British centre for 'gender non-conforming' girls and boys will be able to prescribe puberty blockers any more. The approach will have to be solely psychological: a resounding turning point that will have knock-on effects all over the world, including Italy. One of the biggest scandals in the history of medicine is finally coming to an end: will someone pay for the thousands of irreversibly damaged minors? Recalling here one among them who lost his life because of the unscrupulousness of doctors and surgeons
The British National Health Service (NHS) announces that PUBERTY BLOCKERS WILL NO LONGER BE ADMINISTRATED TO MINORS WITH GENDER Dysphoria: this is huge and heart-warming news after years and years of fighting on the front line. So not only is the dedicated service of the Tavistock Clinic in London closing, but no centre for the treatment of minors with dysphoria will use puberty blockers any more. The decision, described as 'historic', will have knock-on effects worldwide, [...].

WPATH scandal: 'therapies' for children with dysphoria are improvised and prescribed without real consent
The World Professional Transgender Health is considered the leading global scientific and medical authority on 'gender medicine': over the past decades its standards of care have shaped the guidelines, policies and practices of governments, medical associations, public health systems and private clinics worldwide, including the WHO. But leaked documents reveal the neglect of children -including children with severe mental disorders- subjected to improvised treatments, without taking into account the long-term consequences and without being sure they were clear about what they were doing
The news manages to shock even those who have long fought against affirmative therapy - puberty blockers, hormones and surgery - for gender non-conforming minors, such as psychoanalyst David Bell who exposed the scandal at the Tavistock Clinic in London: 'Even for me the contents of these files are shocking and disturbing,' he said. "The files suggest that some WPATH members are aware that gender-affirming treatments sometimes cause very serious harm and [...]

Bodies that don't count: Judith Butler returns to the fray
In a crowded lecture at the London School of Economics, the Californian philosopher and pioneer of gender theory reiterated the cornerstones of her thinking: the materiality of sex does not exist, women do not have the exclusive right to be women and must open up to other subjects starting with Queers and pro-Palestinians, transfeminism is anti-capitalist and anti-fa for a common fight against "fascist passions". And it attacks gender-critical feminism "allied with the Right".
At one point, it seemed that Judith Butler had changed her ways. The Californian philosopher, one of the most influential of the last thirty years, a theorist of gender performativity, who had arrived along a radical constructivist path to the negation of the material consistency of gendered bodies to the point of problematising and/or dismantling the subject 'woman' itself, had acknowledged: "My definition gave rise to two contrasting interpretations: for one, everyone chooses their own gender; for the second, we are all women. had recognised: 'my definition gave rise to two conflicting interpretations: for the first, everyone chooses their own gender; for the second, we are all completely determined by gender norms [...].
