The 2018 Winter Olympic Games will set a different kind of record in the wake of the International Olympic Committee’s (IOC) recent confirmation that “transgender” athletes will now be permitted to decide whether they wish compete as a man … or woman.
The statement issued by IOC officials announced that athletes will no longer be required to compete in categories according to their natural sex at birth – as gender or sex testing will not be administered prior to the games.
“With regard to Hyperandrogenism in female athletes, there were no regulations in place at the Olympic Games Rio 2016, and there will be no regulations in place at the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang, 2018, as we are still awaiting the resolution of the Dutee Chand case,” the IOC responded in an email it issued in June after being asked about its regulations for the Olympics being held this coming winter, according to the Daily Caller.
Chand’s abnormal and unnatural masculinity that clearly gave her an athletic edge flew in the face of long-established Olympic rules established to guarantee fairness in the Games.
“The Dutee Chand case concerns the Indian sprinter who is fighting rules that prevent her from competing because she exhibits ‘female hyperandrogenism,’ and has too many natural male traits, which may give her an advantage over female opponents,” Breitbart noted. “She was banned from competition because her natural testosterone levels exceeded the IOC’s rules. However, India is appealing the ruling.”
‘She-men’ invading Olympics?
The inquiry to the IOC was spurred after South African female track-in-field runner, Caster Semenya, clobbered the competition in the last Summer Olympic Games with the help of an unnatural amount testosterone in her system – giving her an advantage that has been greatly criticized by numerous fellow athletes, journalists and sports officials alike.
“The response follows controversy that sparked after 800-meter South African runner Caster Semenya won gold at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Brazil,” the Daily Caller’s Grace Carr noted. “Semenya’s intersex condition causes her to produce more testosterone (hyperandrogenism) than most women, prompting questions about whether she had an unfair biological advantage.”
Her unnaturally induced hormone imbalance has been going on for about a decade now, and much criticism has accompanied it.
“When Semenya, then 18, dominated the 800 at the 2009 world track and field championships – winning by more than two seconds – a fellow competitor called her a man,” the New York Times reported during the Summer Olympics last summer.
There has been a consistent revisiting of the rules ever since the blowout race.
“The IOC Medical Commission held a consensus meeting in 2010 on female hyperandrogenism and implemented the IOC Regulations on Female Hyperandrogenism prior to the 2012 London Olympic Games, according to the IOC’s email, Carr informed. “The regulations were published in September 2013 and updated for the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic Games.”
International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) General Secretary Pierre Weiss had a big problem with Semenya’s unnatural masculine advantage.
“She is a woman, but maybe not 100 percent,” Weiss commented on Semenya’s eligibility, according to the Times.
At the time – before the normalizing of transgenderism was so predominantly indoctrinated in the schools and promoted by the media and entertainment industry – much of the sports world and its spectators were up-in-arms about such unfair physical advantages.
“Semenya was barred from competition and subjected to sex tests,” the Times’ Jeré Longman informed before unleashing the daily’s Leftist slant. “She returned months later, but the insensitivity shown toward her was sad.”
Different times ...
In fact, it has traditionally been a no-brainer that women exuding mass amounts of male hormones – or those taking other unnatural performance-enhancing hormones or drugs – were strictly prohibited from the Olympic Games.
“In the past, the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) – the world’s governing body for track and field – sought to preserve the male-female division by administering gynecological exams, chromosome tests, or hormone tests to ensure fair competition,” Carr pointed out. “Before the Rio Olympics, women like Semenya whose functional levels of the hormone are higher than 10 nmols/L were barred from international competition. Between 2011 and 2015, the IAAF ruled that any woman with less than 10 nanomoles of testosterone per liter of blood could compete in women’s events. Sex testing was not required of any athletes at the Rio Olympics, however, meaning intersex track athletes could compete with their natural testosterone levels.”
Proof that male hormone inductions truly work – and give athletes the edge they need to win Olympic medals – is provided when looking at Semenya’s performance on and off unnatural testosterone injections.
“Prior to IAFF regulations, Semenya dominated the 800m race at the world championships in Berlin, but she failed to move beyond the semifinals in Beijing after testosterone limits were implemented,” Carr added. “When the testosterone rule was suspended in 2015, she returned to form, winning the 400m, 800m, and 1500m races at the African Championships – all on the same day – and an Olympic gold the following year.”
But because women purposely taking testosterone has not been scientifically studied for very long to officially substantiate that male hormones dramatically enhance female’s athletic performance – and especially because of the politically correct tide and the LGBTQ’s so-called “human rights” movement to accept transsexuality as a matter on anti-discrimination – the IOC is not enforcing testosterone level requirements.
“[T]he arbitration panel noted [that] science has not conclusively shown that elevated testosterone provides women with more of a significant competitive edge than factors like nutrition, access to coaching and training facilities, and other genetic and biological variations,” the Times explained last summer.
Two distinct views about the motivation behind the IOC’s pro-transgender decision are embraced by Americans.
“Some worry that Olympics rules have not caught up to sports medicine and science,” Breitbart’s Warner Todd Huston indicated. “Though, more worry that with the rise of transgender lifestyles, the specter of unfair competition lurks.”
More and more Americans are expressing concerns that testosterone-laden females and males are altogether changing the face of sports at virtually every level, making natural girls and women – with normal sex hormone levels – unable to compete at high levels with transgender males or testosterone-induced females.
“That fear has become fact in several cases in U.S. high schools, where biological teenage girls were pitted against teen boys claiming to be transgender girls,” Huston concluded. “The results of those encounters, predictably, were that biological girls lost those contests to the transgender [male] students.”
