The Left's Latest Attack Against Women

War on Women Indeed

by baldilocks

Usu­ally, I’m pretty good at fig­ur­ing out the moti­va­tions of the post­mod­ernists. But this time …

Why does the Orga­nized Left want to destroy orga­nized women’s sports?

Mark Rip­petoe:

[The Inter­na­tional Olympic Com­mit­tee and the Inter­na­tional Asso­ci­a­tion of Ath­letic Fed­er­a­tions] are par­tic­i­pat­ing in a lie for polit­i­cal pur­poses, to the detri­ment of women who want to com­pete in a sep­a­rate Women’s divi­sion. Pro­ceed­ing as though con­gen­i­tal men are no dif­fer­ent from women if their testos­terone has been arti­fi­cially low­ered is merely agree­ing upon the lie.

To my knowl­edge, the only orga­ni­za­tion that has this sit­u­a­tion ade­quately cov­ered is the US Strength­lift­ing Fed­er­a­tion, with an Open and a Women’s divi­sion. The Women’s divi­sion is restricted to con­gen­i­tal females, while the Open divi­sion is avail­able to any­one else under any cir­cum­stances. No one is excluded from com­pe­ti­tion, and con­gen­i­tal women com­pete against each other.

Sports com­pe­ti­tion has always been about a lack of “fair­ness,” if by that you mean an equal­ity of out­come. Win­ners are always out­liers, and this is espe­cially true at the elite lev­els of all sports. Women have their own out­liers, and women’s com­pe­ti­tion finds these peo­ple – if it is allowed to do so.

Ini­tially, the only con­clu­sion that seems cogent is the Joker’s phi­los­o­phy — that some peo­ple just want to see the world burn. Applied to this mat­ter, one won­ders how many of the higher-​ups in the two inter­na­tional sports orga­ni­za­tions merely hate women and are play­ing out their neu­roses using the power invested in them.

It’s log­i­cal that real women should boy­cott — if you’ll par­don the expres­sion — all orga­nized sports com­pe­ti­tions which allow trans-​women to infiltrate.

But I think that this is the goal of the per­pe­tra­tors. It’s a response that was prob­a­bly fac­tored in.

These peo­ple — I’ll wager that the major­ity are men — would rather see trans-​women replace real women on the national stage. And the “beauty” of it is that any real women who speak up in protest can be shouted down as bigots.

Hatred of icky females and the silenc­ing of them …

It may be as sim­ple as that.

War on Women Indeed

by baldilocks

Usually, I’m pretty good at figuring out the motivations of the postmodernists. But this time …

Why does the Organized Left want to destroy organized women’s sports?

Mark Rippetoe:

[The International Olympic Committee and the International Association of Athletic Federations] are participating in a lie for political purposes, to the detriment of women who want to compete in a separate Women’s division. Proceeding as though congenital men are no different from women if their testosterone has been artificially lowered is merely agreeing upon the lie.

To my knowledge, the only organization that has this situation adequately covered is the US Strengthlifting Federation, with an Open and a Women’s division. The Women’s division is restricted to congenital females, while the Open division is available to anyone else under any circumstances. No one is excluded from competition, and congenital women compete against each other.

Sports competition has always been about a lack of “fairness,” if by that you mean an equality of outcome. Winners are always outliers, and this is especially true at the elite levels of all sports. Women have their own outliers, and women’s competition finds these people – if it is allowed to do so.

Initially, the only conclusion that seems cogent is the Joker’s philosophy — that some people just want to see the world burn. Applied to this matter, one wonders how many of the higher-ups in the two international sports organizations merely hate women and are playing out their neuroses using the power invested in them.

It’s logical that real women should boycott — if you’ll pardon the expression — all organized sports competitions which allow trans-women to infiltrate.

But I think that this is the goal of the perpetrators. It’s a response that was probably factored in.

These people — I’ll wager that the majority are men — would rather see trans-women replace real women on the national stage. And the “beauty” of it is that any real women who speak up in protest can be shouted down as bigots.

Hatred of icky females and the silencing of them …
