Ilhan Omar wants Keith Ellison to Investigate USA POWERLIFTING Ban on Biological Males from Women’s Events

 

It’s curious as to what motivated our gal Rep Ilhan Omar to wade into this nightmare. She wants her Muslim guy pal Ellison to go after USA Powerlifting for barring males from competing in women’s events.

In her letter to Ellison in support of this investigation, third paragraph down, the operative sentence.

… “follow the example of the International Olympic Committee.”

This caught my eye from a post a couple of years ago:

Men can compete as women in upcoming Olympics

There’s great news for adventurous male Olympic hopefuls: if they declare themselves women and reduce their testosterone below 10 nmol/L for at least 12 months prior to competition, they can compete against ladies.

There’s even better news for these men; according to transgender guidelines approved by the International Olympic Committee, genitalia does not serve as a prerequisite. The guidelines state: “To require surgical anatomical changes as a pre-condition to participation is not necessary to preserve fair competition and may be inconsistent with developing legislation and notions of human rights.”

Let’s just set aside the dressing and showering issues alone.

 

WASHINGTON — Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar recommended Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison investigate USA Powerlifting for barring biological males from women’s events, according to a Jan. 31 letter she sent USA Powerlifting.

Omar called it a “myth” that men who identify as transgender women have a “direct competitive advantage” and copied Ellison on the letter, “with a recommendation that he investigate this discriminatory behavior.” (RELATED: Biological Male Wins World Championship In Women’s Cycling)

Omar sent her letter on behalf of JayCee Cooper, a biological male who identifies as a transgender woman, and whom Omar identified as one of her constituents. She signed the letter on Jan. 31, though it only became public on Tuesday after Cooper posted a picture to Instagram, where it caught the attention of OutSports.

Ace speculates as to why our gal is after women’s sports. How about his thought?

Why is Ilhan Omar, of all people, jumping on this issue?

Is this because she’s an extreme intersectionalist leftwinger? Or is it because she harbors the usual Islamic notions of what a woman should be and what a woman shouldn’t be, and doesn’t mind the notion of destroying women’s sports altogether?

Maybe women shouldn’t be doing Manly things like sports. Maybe they should just be servicing their husband and making dinner with their husband’s other wives.

Men can compete as women in upcoming Olympics

Put me down as in the unbelievable column. Any male third world athlete hopeful simply has to decrease his testosterone level, still keep his package, and compete in the women’s Olympics. Hmm… the showering bit? How is this going to play out with the women? Here we go:

There’s great news for adventurous male Olympic hopefuls: if they declare themselves women and reduce their testosterone below 10 nmol/L for at least 12 months prior to competition, they can compete against ladies.

There’s even better news for these men; according to transgender guidelines approved by the International Olympic Committee, genitalia does not serve as a prerequisite. The guidelines state: “To require surgical anatomical changes as a pre-condition to participation is not necessary to preserve fair competition and may be inconsistent with developing legislation and notions of human rights.”

The IOC ignores evidence that the fairness of male to female transition still leaves men larger in general than the women they compete against. As Robert S. Beil, M.D., of Montefiore Medical Group, acknowledged, “MTF trans people tend to be bigger, and may have certain strengths from before they started using estrogen.” As noted in a study published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine

No Women Ski Jumpers in upcoming Olympics

Our loss–Well, maybe when the Olympics move to Russia?

Curling is much more fun. Thats the one where they have that thingy where some guys use a couple of brooms and sweep away to some assine goal which no one understands. The women were rejected in 2006 when the International Olympic Committee (IOC) added only one event, ski cross—head-to-head downhill racing that prides itself on being chaotic. Too few ski jumpers was the reason, said the IOC. The women argued numbers: 83 competitors at the elite level from 14 countries, more women than for ski cross, bobsled, snowboard cross, luge or skeleton, according to Women’s Ski Jumping USA, nonprofit volunteers supporting the athletes.

But why would the IOC bar women ski jumpers? Women’s Ski Jumping Vice President Vic Method has a theory: “This is a big macho event in Europe. If suddenly you’ve got these little size-four girls jumping comparable distances, the men don’t look so macho anymore.” When the Vancouver ski jump opened in 2008, Lindsey Van of the U.S. out-jumped the men, setting the record of 105.5 meters on the new 95-meter jump and promising Olympic drama now denied, or at least delayed.

Men have been ski jumping since the early 1800s and were part of the first winter Olympics in 1924. The event is spectacular and scary, especially on the biggest hills. A lone skier sits on a bar atop a 215-meter hill (that’s about 705 feet high). He pushes off and speeds down the 382-foot, snow-covered surface at 64 miles an hour. Then suddenly he’s airborne, flying as far as 784 feet, 40 feet high, hitting the ground with such force that, when things go wrong, we’re reminded of that old “Wide World of Sports” footage about “the agony of defeat.”

Women—ski jumping since the 1880s and in FIS-sanctioned events since 1998—take the same risks as the men. The technical difficulty of their events is the same and their performances are comparable, but they don’t get to compete on the sport’s biggest stage, the Olympics.
