I MUST BE A TRADITIONALIST !



Is Gavin Hubbard's injury and possible career ending injury, karma?
Empathy and sympathy are in short supply but I am somewhat sad that he has chosen to make his gender confusion so public but that was always his  choice.
A bloke competing as a Sheilah is wrong in so many ways and the fact that most events are separated by gender is obvious to anyone with functioning brain cells.
That Nature sometimes creates a gender conundrum is no more or less sad than a person wanting to be a Michael Jordan and only reaching 1.5 meters in bare feet.

Sheilah tennis 'stars's only manage best of three sets while blokes can fight out five while all getting equal pay is utter bollocks.

To decide at thirty something he wants to be a girl leaves Mr Hubbard a bigger fraud than his idiot dad who managed to convince Aucklanders to elect him mayor. At least he ran as a bloke albeit a blouse.

Hows about make it bridge or macrame where it is unlikely gender makes a physical difference, Eh Gav? or if you still have the cojones maybe poker, as in put your money where your mouth is.

If your career is indeed ended then an embarrassing bit of sport gone mad is ended for now.
Who will be the first to deliberately maim themselves for a moment in history still awaits.

Many people who are freaks can attain greatness in playing a hand delivered by nature but they still have to train and work to make their advantage count, Mr Gavin Hubbard spent thirty years developing his body to compete in weight lifting as a bloke only then to trans  a hormonally developed  body to use that testosterone built body as a weapon to dominate a sport where women struggled to compete and it was OK, I do not think so.

The struggles some people face with who they are and how to deal with it oughtn't to be a target for scorn and contempt, but somehow always are.

My town used to have an old school cop. He was a force to be reckoned with if you were bad, but a steadying influence on those on the borderline. Had I been caught underage drinking in a local bar I would've wound up doing a lot of 'voluntary' work around the town before he exercised his duty to place me in front of a judge. Had I claimed that I really believed I was a twenty one year old trapped in a nineteen year old body he would've kicked my arse all the way to the Alexandra court house for insulting his intelligence.

Trans people are not well. It's an insult to intelligence to confirm their delusion. Any scorn or contempt should be towards those who confirm the delusion.

Is it at all strange that afaik, no female with gender confusion has yet invaded any traditional mens sports, pehaps some discussion on that could aid the debate.

Milt you might be confusing my opinions on fairplay as scorn and contempt but that is not the motivation.It is rather sad that modern protocol on debating such matters is used to prevent legitimate debate by just shutting it down.

Could that explain the total disregard on Genters extreme views on older white men from the HRC that many felt offensive on top of the original offensive ageist remarks from JAG.

Many people have all sorts of struggles and deal with them without ending up on such a high profile stage.

Gavin Hubbard is not and never will be a sheilah and chose to put himself in a situation that many see as plain wrong.

If Laurel Hubbard had chosen a life in one of many fields where a suspected advantage from thirty years of testosterone (maybe look it up) was of no import the issue would not have arisen.

Good god, I understood every word Dodger has written and yes, suspend disbelief for a moment, I also agree with every word he has written. A new era dawning??

I share your view on the unfairness of Laurel Hubbard competing in women's weightlifting. My comment was about the scorn and contempt you direct at her as a person.

It is rather sad that modern protocol on debating such matters is used to prevent legitimate debate by just shutting it down.

If you write about people different from yourself with scorn and contempt, others may point out what you're doing. That's not "shutting down legitimate debate," that's "starting one."

Could that explain the total disregard on Genters extreme views on older white men from the HRC that many felt offensive on top of the original offensive ageist remarks from JAG.

I expect that if the country's boards of directors considered almost entirely of old Māori women, you might find that unusual circumstance worthy of comment yourself. You might even suggest that perhaps it shouldn't be the case, and I'm sure JAG would agree with you.

Imagine Bruce, aka Caitlyn Jenner competing in the ladies pentathlon when he was younger, what a mismatch. I agree with Gravedigger, the whole Hubbard thing is a sham. I spent most of my life in the strength area, also as a strength coach. My observations of beginners in this field of males and females are. Women have just over 60% of the lower body strength of a male, and 52% of the upper body strength of a male. This is brought about by much higher degree of testosterone levels in adult males. Women do have testosterone but a small fraction of what males have, so it is really a male hormone. Conversely males do have the female hormone, estrogen but a small fraction of the level in women. It is a fraud to allow biologically mutilated and feminized males to compete in ladies sports. Imagine if Brodie Rettalick decided he was a woman and was allowed to play in the ladies rugby team. At the end of the day these people should be pitied more than blamed.

A friend summed it up as a 'cock in a frock'.
They want to play sport, do so with like people.
There appear enough C in a f to do it.
Playing against women is dishonest
