Court Orders Powerlifting USA To Permit Men to Compete Against Women

Well, it's not as if men have any advantage over women in pure physical strength or anything!

Tar, feathers, rail. Some assembly and humiliation required.

JayCee Cooper, a transgender athlete, won a discrimination case against USA Powerlifting this week after the federation banned her from competing in female events.

With Cooper's victory comes a mandate the federation "cease and desist from all unfair discriminatory practices" because of sexual orientation and gender identity.

The organization must revise its policy related to those issues within two weeks, meaning trans athletes will be able to compete in the women's category after previously being banned.

You know how conservative judges routinely issue a stay of their own judgment in major cases likely to spark an appeal...? So that their decisions don't go into effect until after an appeals court has reviewed them?

Yeah, leftwing woke judges don't roll that way. They say their rulings are in effect from the moment they file them.

Perhaps we should emulate them. They keep telling us that they are our Superiors, after all.

Cooper filed a complaint in 2019 with the Minnesota Department of Human Rights, alleging the organization violated the state's Human Rights Act by banning her and other trans athletes from competing in female competitions.

She then filed a lawsuit against USA Powerlifitng in state court in 2021.

"I was fed up with the way that I was being treated; I was fed up with the way that my community was being treated, and enough was enough," Cooper told KARE-TV.

"I feel mostly relief. I think we needed a win here, and it feels good to get that."
The stage at the men's middleweight powerlifting event during The World Games 2022 July 9, 2022, at Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex Concert Hall in Birmingham, Ala.

"The harm is in making a person pretend to be something different, the implicit message being that who they are is less than," the ruling said. "That is the very essence of separation and segregation, and it is what the MHRA prohibits."

LOL. The harm of Powerlifting USA's ban on men competing against women is that they were forcing this biological man to "pretend he's something different" -- a man, they mean -- and compete against other men!

Here the court argues that the huge advantage men have in muscle and bone density is no big deal in a powerlifting competition, because, you see... transgenders have emotional problems that more than wipe away their advantages.

[T]he court cited "increased risk of depression and suicide, lack of access to coaching and practice facilities, or other performance suppression common to transgender persons," as competitive disadvantages for transgender competitors.

USA Powerlifting has decided that men should compete against women.

Some are speaking out against this unhinged ruling, including ESPN's Sage Steel.

The decision drew ire from many across social media, including ESPN anchor Sage Steele, who noticed the news made waves at the start of Women’s History Month.

"Yes. Unfair to women," she said in response to a tweet from Twitter CEO Elon Musk. "And the irony of this decision being made during Women's History Month......

Meanwhile, stupid feminists are shocked to discover that men are really quite a bit stronger than women! They're suddenly very "nervous" about the possibility of a physical confrontation with a man. (Spit.)

This is part of the reason Woke Feminists don't mind male transgenders competing with girls: they think girls are just as strong as men, pretty much.

I knew a woman who believed this. I didn't talk to her about this, but my old friend steve_in_hb relayed the conversation to me. He was suuuuuper annoyed by it.

She insisted that women were just as strong as men, and what differences there are were attributable only to gross weight differences. But she insisted that a, say, 120 pound woman would be just as strong as a 120 pound man.

She didn't believe that men had a greater density of muscle by weight. She also insisted that whatever minor advantages men had in strength, women compensated for by being "quicker and more agile." She did not explain why women did not show this greater "quickness" in the 100 meter dash, where the women's world record is nearly a full second slower (well, like 0.89 seconds, which is an eternity in the 100) than the men's record. She seemed unaware that "quickness" arises from fast-twitch muscle fibers which men also have in greater supply than women do.

Anyway, this is a widespread dogma among women infected by feminist Stupidity, that women are just as strong as men, and if they don't seem to be as strong, it's only because they're socially conditioned to believe they're weaker. And if women just believe they're as strong as men, poof, they are.

So why shouldn't the six-foot-five Will "Lia" Thomas compete with five-foot-four girls in collegiate swimming? It's not like having an additional twenty pounds of muscle on your frame, or seven inches of arm length, or four inches of foot length, could possibly make you a stronger swimmer! Girls just need to believe they're taller, and have longer wingspans, and have larger cross-sections on their foot-paddles!

This explains the shock at women learning no, men are really much stronger, and can fend off a woman with ease, much as if they're fending off a juvenile child.

Question: Are all of these feminists gold-star lesbians or femcels? I ask because in sexual relationships, it's pretty common to get into fun little pretend tickle-fights or play-wrestling matches. Like when she wants to watch something and you won't give her the remote and she tries to fight you for it and you hold it out of her reach.

So any woman who's been in a relationship with a man or two should have realized that, typically, the men she's dated are all easily able to win any such play-fight without trying very hard. She can go all-out while he kinda just tries to not get hurt and not hurt her.

Or do these women just date only soyboy betamale noodlearm pencilneck chiselchest softdicks?

Ah. That could be it, too.
