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.

Is violence structural to transfeminism?
Paola Pieri, from the group MaternaMente, recounts the violence she suffered in Florence from trans activists
Text by Paola Pieri, of the group MaternaMente. Last Thursday, 23 March, I went in front of the Careggi hospital, here in Florence, where a small garrison called by 'Resistance to the nanoworld' was being held, attended by Silvia Guerini, author of the book 'From the neutral body to the post-human cyborg, critical reflections on gender ideology'. Presidium called in such a place because it is where dozens of minors and others with 'gender dysphoria', treated with puberty blockers, hormones and other planned [...].

Petrillo: my body doesn't count, I want to use women's showers. And withdraws from the Torun World Championships for reasons of 'safety'
Winning competitions is not enough: Petrillo also claims to use the women's changing rooms after the Italian Athletics Federation at the request of female athletes decided on reserved spaces. "The state recognises me as a woman, male genitals don't count. Besides,' she sneers, 'it certainly won't be the first time they see them. In the meantime, she renounces the next world championships for 'security' reasons.
A few days ago, we published a report on the competition of Valentina born Fabrizio Petrillo in Ancona, with the reactions of the female athletes beaten by her male body. The female athletes made it clear that, although they respected Petrillo's personal journey, athletically they were not on a par and that they felt discriminated against. The statements made by the female athletes to the Feminist Post were taken up by other newspapers, including Il Giornale (here), and provoked comments from Petrillo, who had [...]

'We were wrong': pioneer of puberty blockers admits damage
Susan Bradley, a Canadian psychiatrist who founded a clinic for 'dysphoric' minors in the 1970s and an authority in this field today states that the switch from psychological therapy to drugs was a big mistake. Because their effects are severe and not reversible, because those treatments are 'authoritarian' and experimental. And because in 9 out of 10 cases children's dysphoria is only temporary and masks other disorders.
In an interview with the Daily Caller News Foundation, Dr Susan Bradley, a Canadian psychiatrist and a pioneer in the treatment of gender dysphoria in children, spoke out against the popular model of affirming children's transgender identities and treating them with puberty-blocking drugs, a practice she had participated in in the past. Bradley had opened a paediatric clinic in 1975 for children suffering from gender dysphoria, a profound sense of unease concerning the [...]

The men's ultracorp of the transatlete Petrillo continues to win everything. Opponents react
Valentina née Fabrizio once again outclassed her opponents in Ancona on 12 March. She now has eight master's titles, whereas before the transition - when she competed with the men - she had not even won one. Now she is preparing for the world championships. Here a summary of the races and statements from the athletes unjustly deprived of victory
Valentina born Fabrizio Petrillo, born in 1973, turns 50 this year and changes category in national masters athletics competitions. On 11 and 12 March in Ancona, she competed for the first time in the F50 category, i.e. with female athletes aged 50 to 54. And again, with her ultra-masculine body, she easily racked up trophies and records that used to belong to female athletes. But what is it like to see a live ultra-male body competing against female bodies? What are [...]

Slavoj Žižek: puberty blockers are woke capitalism
The Marxist philosopher speaks of wokeness, the progressive cult of awareness and awakening, giving an evocative psychoanalytic reading of it. And warns that despite appearing under attack today we will have to deal with it for a long time to come
In an evocative article published by Compact, entitled Wokeness is here to stay -which we translate and partially reproduce here- the Marxist philosopher Slavoj Žižek tackles the subject of wokeness, the movement of 'awakening', analysing its critical aspects but also underlining the reasons why we will have to deal with it for a long time to come. Some argue that 'wokeness' is in decline. In reality it is gradually being normalised and conformed even by those who inwardly doubt it, and is practised by most academic institutions, [...].

Transsexuality is not a lunch for genderqueers
Being transgender is not transgenderism but a deeply dramatic experience with an uncertain outcome. Which has nothing to do with the stale stereotypes with which gender identity is expressed. Neviana Calzolari's reflections
Republished courtesy of Dol's Magazine. Original article here Neviana Calzolari, sociologist, activist, writer and TV face. Yet hardly mainstream, indeed among the most acute (and critical) observers of the social-political landscape of our times (...) The I-Dee group of Milan and the Ipazia association of Catania met her. - The Zan bill was designed to combat homotranssphobia, therefore with good intentions,' Neviana began, 'despite this I remain sceptical about certain terminology, in particular 'gender identity', which alarms much of the world [...].
