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:

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.
What say you?
