Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

US transgender powerlifter Mary Gregory was stripped of records she set last month at a national competition after a doping test revealed that the athlete "was actually a male in the process of becoming a transgender female." Gregory broke four women's world records during the competition in the squat, bench press and deadlift disciplines as well as total record in her weight class.

However, the federation didn't share enthusiasm over Gregory's record-breaking performance after the obligatory doping control proved that the athlete should have performed in men's category.

"The lifter exceeded the current female world records in this lifter's age and weight category. This automatically calls for drug testing protocol which takes place at the end of every event. The drug testing coordinator for this event performed the drug test at which time it was revealed that this female lifter was actually a male in the process of becoming a transgender female," the federation said in a statement.

He got his strength from being a man. But took it out as a woman. And beat real women with it..

How is this ok?

So much for the equality of the sexes. This 'chick' wouldn't have even qualified for the WI high school boys state championships where the minimum qualifying is 1150lbs vs. 'her' 971.

Sanity. How refreshing.

Steve Smith on ESPN had a good point: since transgender rights are now such a "thing", why don't the athletic federations create a separate category for them, after all, they make such a big deal out of the fact of their transition.

Why is it always M-to-F transgenders who compete against biological women, but rarely, if ever, F-to-M transgenders competing against biological men?

Apparently not.

Even though I can see that's a dude, I still wouldn't go all out and say it out loud on the off chance I might be wrong... I have seen uglier women than that guy.

How is this ok?

This is a liberal universe. Here unicorns live inside people's butts and rainbows come out of exhaust tailpipes. Many many things are possible.

No, it's not OK but who listens to us?
