There she is, kicking rears and drinking beers.



He transitioned in his mid 30's. And passed all the international Olympics committees criteria, so there you go. She (past he) is a winner.


The performance puts Hubbard in line for selection at the 2017 Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast.

While her eligibility passed the International Olympic Committee's criteria, Hubbard's win was met with criticism from Australian competitors who believe a transgender athlete in the female weightlifting category was not an equal playing field.

Hubbard was born the son of former Auckland mayor Dick Hubbard and has previously competed at a national level in men's weightlifting as Gavin Hubbard.

She transitioned in her mid-30s and recent improvements have lifted her to a lofty women's ranking.

Well, of course, we all want to know, Does she shave her pits and Manscape, I mean Womanscape......Transcape????

Clearly in the future, we will need to introduce 2 new levels of competition......

Male Competition..

Female Competition..

Trans Male to Female Competition..

Trans Female to Male Competition..

Can a Trans Female to Male Weightlifter, claim discrimination because she, I mean He, has to lift the same weights as a Male, even tho He or is it she, has the bone structure and muscularity of a woman? (unless she is a Williams brother, I mean sister)

Those Damn Hormones did it......

My head hurts, time to lie down.....

What a Wonderful Worldt.....

I would imagine the male to female trans sports would be more popular than female to male. Either way, too few athletes.

What I don't get is to compete she or he has to have less than a certain amount of testosterone in the body for 12 months. But what about the 25+ years he/she still had normal male testosterone? So he was able to grow to a mans size then reduce his test levels and compete with women? Rediculous...

Qualified answer: This is clearly just wrong.

Qualifications: Provided upon request (for those that don't know)

Additional comments:

There's no need to disparage all transgender people as a whole just because some are a-holes, idiots and jerks.

OP, your external source doesn't have a link and shouldn't have used quote tags

OP, your OP is little more than clickbait

There are many different articles about this on the net. www.washingtontimes.com... He should have posted which one he was getting info from. It seems a lot of sport people are pissed at this.

It is click bait becasue you happen to have a differing opinion. My comments did not disparage trans, where did you get that?

First of all, your link is wrong but thanks for trying. Secondly, I addressed two comments specifically to you, neither of which said you were disparaging trans people so where did you get that?

Finally, you know as well as I do how transgender topics go around here. Adding to the further clickbaityness of your post are just two short sentences of you own original material. I'm sure your thread will be good for stars and flags but it's really a poor quality post and I know you can do better.

For real source
au.news.yahoo.com...

Oh I see, the post is poor quality, because of what? How do trans threads go?

And it seems you disagree with the majority of replies therefore making it 'click bait'.
