Some good news for a change, still sticking with stories that have little or nothing to do with the Wuhan Virus, the Idaho Senate has approved of HB 500a, the Fairness in Women’s Sports act, banning biological males who “identify” as females from competing in girls’ and women’s sports.
According to Breitbart: “The bill passed the State Senate, 24-11, after being approved by the House in February, 52-17. The House must approve a Senate amendment to the bill prior to sending it to the desk of Gov. Brad Little (R) for his signature.”
If approved by the House and signed into law by the governor (which is to be expected), Idaho would become the first state in the country to protect girls’ and women’s sports from biological males seeking to cheat by competing against women.
Utterly unsurprisingly, Leftists were outraged at this, with some trying to outright shame and intimidate members of the State Senate on Twitter.
GLSEN, an LGBT organization, tweeted: “This is downright shameful: In the face of a global pandemic, the Idaho Senate spent yesterday passing a dangerous bill that singles out transgender students for discrimination.”
I just love it when Leftist hacks jam all of their preferred adjectives into their tweets. In that one, we find “dangerous” and “discrimination”, despite the fact that this bill protects girls from CHEATING MALE ATHLETES competing against them in an unfair manner. It does not “discriminate” against anyone. It protects girls’ and women’s sports from being destroyed by shameless cheaters who have a natural advantage in physical competition and therefore have a much higher chance to win (and just because they don’t always win, that doesn’t take away their natural advantages that should not be present in this category of sports).
Idaho Sen. Mary Souza (R), a sponsor of this bill, told the Idaho Press: “We are not trying to do anything except save women’s sports for girls and women.” Apparently, trying to protect women’s sports is not “progressive”.
Leftists also call one of the provisions of the bill “retrogressive” because it demands that athletes prove their gender via some sort of DNA testing. This is a problem for Leftists because their entire narrative centers around gender being a “social construct” and being entirely “fluid” and up to an individual’s interpretation for their own gender, when biology teaches us otherwise.
Men have XY chromosomes whereas women have XX chromosomes. This isn’t up to interpretation, neither is it up for debate. Biology, science, tells us what men are and what women are. You would think that “the party of science” would believe science, but no, they just believe the “science” that benefits them.
“The glaciers aren’t actually melting and there is no threat of major cities being flooded? Bah! That’s not REAL science!”
“Logic demands that there be an omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent God, and the theory of evolution is so full of holes it may as well pass off as Swiss cheese? Then I deny logic itself!”
“Biology has proven that there is a very discernible difference between men and women, even though such a difference should already be plain as day with just a simple glance? Bah humbug! I reject such an obvious result!”
This is why I have written articles that PROVE the Left hates actual science. It’s because it’s true. The idea that men and women are different is, somehow, retrogressive even though it’s a natural fact.
But these people simply can’t help themselves and their side must always win, even when their side would be catastrophic for everyone at every level, and so, they attempt to shame the Idaho legislature for having COMMON SENSE.
And while I know that Leftists and transgender activists (but I repeat myself) will claim that there is no scientific evidence to suggest biological males “identifying” as females have an advantage over biological females, that’s simply not the case.
According to Breitbart News, “a recent study conducted by the Karolinska Institute and Linkoping University in Sweden found biological males – who claim to be transgender women – who were administered a full year of hormone therapy, still maintained muscle mass and strength advantages over biological women.”
“Despite the robust increases in muscle mass and strength in TM (Transgender Men, or women “identifying” as men), the TW (Transgender Women) were still stronger and had more muscle mass following 12 months of treatment. These findings add new knowledge that could be relevant when evaluating transwomen’s eligibility to compete in the women’s category of athletic competitions,” the researchers noted.
They concluded: “Our results indicate that after 12 months of hormonal therapy, a transwoman will still likely have performance benefits over a cis-woman [biological woman].”
Another study released in July of last year concluded that “male athletes who claim to be female hold an ‘intolerable’ advantage over biological female athletes,” according to Breitbart.
This study was conducted following the International Olympic Committee (IOC) announcing that it would allow transgender athletes to compete in the Olympics if the “transgender women” have testosterone levels below 10 nmol/L, which is still significantly higher than testosterone levels of biological females.
The researchers noted that “indirect effects of testosterone will not be altered by hormone therapy. For example, hormone therapy will not alter bone structure, lung volume or heart size of the transwoman athlete, especially if she transitions post-puberty, so natural advantages including joint articulation, stroke volume and maximal oxygen uptake will be maintained.”
And for those who might try and argue that the researchers are “transphobic” or “anti-trans”, note that they said “she” when referring to a transgender woman, when the ACTUAL pronoun for such a person is still masculine because such a person is STILL A MAN NO MATTER WHAT! They adhered to the politically correct pronoun for such a situation, so these people are not “transphobic” or some such nonsense (not that they would’ve been had they used the actual pronoun).
Men, as has been the case for literally all of human existence, have physical advantages over women. We are stronger than women, have higher muscle mass, denser bone structure, higher lung capacity and a bigger heart. All of these things give us an advantage over women in sports and any sort of physical competition. To deny these things is to deny the women competing any semblance of fairness in their sports.
Could you imagine a girl’s football team competing against boys? Or a girl wrestling against a boy? Well, you don’t have to think too hard to imagine this because the Left is trying to push for it and the second example has already happened (as you can see from the picture above). It doesn’t matter what one’s “preferred pronouns” may be, or even how low their testosterone levels are. Men have a physical advantage over women and it is unfair for all women if a man competes against them. That’s not transphobic, it’s reality.
So kudos to the Idaho legislature for doing the right thing and protecting girls and women in their sports competitions from shameless cheaters.
