World Net Daily recently published an article titled Female Athletes Crushed By ‘Women Who Were Once Men’. The article documents a number of instances in which biologically male transgenders have been allowed to compete in women’s events and, in some cases, have already begun winning. The two most notable examples are:
“Transgender weightlifter Laurel Hubbard, who was born a man, won the Australian international women’s competition March 19. Hubbard, 39, lifted 591 pounds, nearly 20 pounds more than the woman who won the silver medal…”
“Transgender cyclist Jillian Bearden, a 36-year-old biological male and Colorado Springs native, won the women’s division of the El Tour de Tucson in four hours and 26 minutes in November 2016.”
This should not come as a surprise, given that the most athletic women in the world achieve results similar to boys in their mid-teens. To establish that fact, below are the women’s Olympic records for a number of track and field and weightlifting events, with the U.S. boys’ records for comparison:
|Track and Field Event||Womens’ Olympic Record||Boys’ U.S. Record||Boys’ Age Group|
|100 meters||10.62 sec||10.7310.54||13-1415-16|
|Weightlifting Class||Event||Womens’ Olympic Record||Boys’ U.S Record||Boys’ Age Class|
|Womens 63kgBoys 62kg||SnatchClean & Jerk
|Womens 69kgBoys 69kg||SnatchClean & Jerk
|Womens 75kgBoys 77kg||SnatchClean & Jerk
As the reader can see, in most track and field events and weightlifting classes, a peak physical condition, elite adult woman athlete performs about the same as an elite 15 year old boy. But then, those were all individual events – perhaps women perform relatively better as a team and increase their physical performance through teamwork. However, there are few examples of all female teams playing against all male teams in official competitive events. There ARE examples of all female teams playing all male teams in scrimmages and unofficial matches, so that’s all the evidence we have to consider.
In many cases, women’s international teams will play against boys’ select or boys’ international teams because there simply aren’t enough elite womens’ teams to practice against. The results of such games are surprising.
The U.K. Daily Mail reported on May 27, 2016, “Australia’s national women’s soccer team have suffered a devastating defeat in the lead up to the Rio Olympics – going down 7-0 to the Newcastle Jets under-15 boys side.”
Sweden’s “The Local” reported on January 16, 2013, “Sweden’s women’s national football team suffered a crushing defeat during a friendly in Stockholm on Tuesday… Within 30 minutes, the boys had plucked one goal from the women, despite [Sweden’s coach] asking the AIK under-17 team to take out one of its defenders and play with only 10 players on the field… The AIK boys ending beating their older, female colleagues 3-0.”
On April 23, 2013, the vaunted U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team played the U.S. Boys Under 17 National Team. The result was 8-2 in favor of the boys, with boys’ forward Junior Flores tweeting, “Beat the women’s national team today, and scored two goals. Sorry hope solo” and “we won 8-2 :O lol I scored 2 goals”. [Ed note: This users tweets are only available to those who are approved by Flores].
US Women’s National Team Defender, Heather Mitts, tweeted, “My horse wasn’t as fast as my opponents today. #demoralizing”. Similarly, US Women’s National Team Midfielder Shannon Boxx tweeted, “What a day. Scrimmaged U17 USMNT. lets just say i can barely walk tnite.”
