Raw Power lifting Federation rejects Transgender’s claim to powerlifting records
Last week I shared with you that a transgender woman, meaning a freaking dude crushed women’s weightlifting records at a competition. Raw Powerlifting Federation has rejected the dudes claim to women’s powerlifting records.
Mary Gregory a biological man who identifies as a woman took the Masters world records for women’s squat, women’s bench press, and women’s deadlift. A female Olympian responded by condemning the “pointless, unfair playing field” where biological women are beaten by biological men who identify as transgender women.
“What a day, 9 for 9! Masters world squat record, open world bench record, masters world dl record, and masters world total record!” Mary Gregory posted on Instagram. Gregory thanked the Raw Powerlifting Federation. “As a transgender lifter I was unsure what to expect going into this meet and everyone – all the spotters, loaders, referees, staff, meet director, all made me welcome and treated me as just another female lifter- thank you!”
According to Breitbart News Raw Powerlifting Federation will not recognize the records by this dude in a women’s competition.
“Our rules, and the basis of separating genders for competition, are based on physiological classification rather than identification,” said a statement from Paul Bossi, president of 100% RAW Powerlifting Federation. Bossi continued:
On the basis of all information presented to the Board of Directors for this particular case, the conclusion made, is that the correct physiological classification is male …
Since the lifter’s gender classification for the purpose of our rules is not consistent with female, no female records will be broken with these lifts.
The biology-based reversal was largely ignored by leading transgender activists, partly because few voters believe the transgender ideology’s claim that sexual discrimination — not biology — explains the different physical strength of men and women.
Finally someone with some sense steps up and says some dude can’t come in and break women’s powerlifting records just because he says his name is Mary.
