Why Trans Women Are a Threat to Women’s Rights

by | Oct 19, 2021 | Blogs, Fire in My Bones

Gavin Hubbard got involved in weightlifting as a young man in his native New Zealand because he hoped it would make him feel more masculine. But after much success in the sport, Gavin decided to change his gender. In 2012, he transitioned to female and began extensive hormone therapy. Gavin Hubbard became Laurel Hubbard.

As a woman, Hubbard won gold medals at the 2019 Pacific Games and the Roma World Cup in 2020. Then during the 2020 Olympics, Hubbard was the first openly transgender woman to compete in the games. Hubbard is 6-foot-1 and 287 pounds and was billed as “the oldest woman” to compete in the Olympics—at age 43.

But Hubbard is not alone. All over the world today, males are “transitioning” to females and then competing against biological women in sports.

– Canadian cyclist Veronica Ivy became a champion in world track cycling in 2018. Also an activist and professor, Ivy argues that testosterone (something that trans women have in abundant supply) has nothing to do with performance levels in sports.

– Adraya Yearwood is a transgender student athlete from Connecticut who won first place in 2017 in the girls’ 100- and 200-meter dashes, competing against biological females. The families of three female athletes who competed against Yearwood sued to stop transgender students from competing unfairly but the lawsuit was dismissed.

– Fallon Fox was born a man and served in the U.S. Navy before he changed his gender. Today he’s known as the world’s first transgender fighter in Mixed Martial Arts. After MMA fighter Tamikka Brents suffered severe injuries during a competition with Fox in 2014, she told reporters: “I’ve fought a lot of women and have never felt the strength that I felt in a fight as I did that night. … I’ve never felt so overpowered ever in my life and I am an abnormally strong female in my own right.”

Multiple states have passed laws to stop transgender women from competing with biological women in sports but politicians and media leaders have jumped on the transgender bandwagon. They insist that “science” is on their side and that we should affirm a person’s gender “choice,” regardless of how much testosterone is in their bodies.

The transgender debate went all the way to the White House when President Biden selected Rachel Levine, 63, to serve as U.S. assistant secretary for health. This week, Levine—who was a married man with two children before he transitioned to female in 2011—was appointed a four-star admiral in the U.S. Public Health Service.

As the first transgender person to be installed as a four-star admiral, Levine has publicly promised to expand the rights of transgender teenagers—which most likely means the government will end up helping underage children to get hormone therapy, puberty blockers and transgender surgeries without parental consent.

The world has gone insane. But if you dare to question the science or the fairness of the trans agenda, you will be canceled by the social media mob. Just ask author J.K. Rowling, famous for the Harry Potter series. In 2019, she dared to call out trans women for trampling on the rights of biological women. Rowling was virtually crucified because of her political incorrectness.

Rowling wrote: “When you throw open the doors of bathrooms and changing rooms to any man who believes or feels he’s a woman … then you open the door to any and all men who wish to come inside.” She also said: “I know and love trans people, but erasing the concept of sex removes the ability of many to meaningfully discuss their lives.”

For defending the rights of biological women, Rowling was labeled “transphobic”—along with a lot of other slurs that I can’t print here. The same words will be pinned on you and me if we refuse to bow down to our culture’s idols.

It is time for all of us to stand up for truth and defy the insanity. I believe every person—male or female, black or white, poor or rich, gay or straight, trans or cis—deserves dignity and human rights. But when an effort to empower trans people ends up trampling the rights of others, that agenda has become selfish, entitled and tyrannical. I will continue to stand for common sense:

– Trans women should not be allowed to compete with biological women in sports because they have an unfair advantage;

– A man who transitions to female and then accomplishes some level of success in a certain field should not be applauded as the “first woman” to make the achievement. This is offensive and unfair to women who worked hard to succeed;

– Trans women cannot know the unique pains, struggles and challenges of biological women, and they should never claim to understand this.

Jesus elevated women and He opposed the chauvinistic men who brutalized them. Now, there are men who “become” women and attempt to lay claim to femininity itself. It doesn’t work that way and our society shouldn’t tolerate this madness. {eoa}
