A biological male competing against biological women wins the competition. What. A. Shocker. Who could’ve seen this coming?
The answer, of course, is anyone with any sense.
The shocking part is that this athlete was allowed to compete against women at all.
ClashDaily has covered stories like this before:
And this one where a biological girl taking testosterone to become male won a championship against other girls:
Just last year the Olympics set out guidelines on how to include transgender athletes into international competition, and it’s rather controversial.
Allowing biological males to compete against biological women in ‘women’s sport’ is perfectly fine says the new World Cycling Champion.
As a matter of fact, Professor McKinnon is an ‘expert’ in this very field of study — the new world champion of the UCI Masters Track Cycling Women 35-44 is tweets, ‘I’m an internationally recognized expert on the science and ethics of transgender inclusion in sport.‘
[Editor’s Note: To avoid confusion, and to follow the Associated Press Style Guide for news outlets, Rachel McKinnon, a Ph.D. in Philosophy will be referred to as ‘Professor’ rather than Dr.]

I go deeply into detail on the most cutting edge research we have, and I focus on the human rights framework established in the Olympic Charter.

This particular individual believes it is ‘discriminatory’ to force transgender women to suppress their natural testosterone.
I swear I’m not making that up.
So, just say you’re a woman and stay a biological male to compete?
McKinnon is also an Olympic hopeful.
But right now, Prof. McKinnon is reveling in the rush of the win.
A biological male who identifies as a transgender woman won a women’s world championship cycling event on Sunday.
Rachel McKinnon, a professor at the College of Charleston, won the women’s sprint 35-39 age bracket at the 2018 UCI Masters Track Cycling World Championships in Los Angeles.
McKinnon, representing Canada, bested Carolien Van Herrikhuyzen of the Netherlands and American cyclist Jennifer Wagner to take home the gold.
McKinnon celebrated the victory on Twitter, writing: “First transgender woman world champion…ever.”

Not fair, you say?
Well, according to some transgender activists, that’s just straight-up bigotry.
Earlier this year, McKinnon and another transgender cyclist, Jillian Bearden, were profiled in USA Today to contrast their very different views on testosterone levels when including transgender athletes into sporting competitions. Bearden agrees with the Olympic guidelines that state that biological men with naturally occurring testosterone have a competitive advantage over biological women. McKinnon, however, says that subjecting transgender women to testosterone blockers violates their human rights and ‘furthers the oppression of transgender people.’
In other words, McKinnon is all for using biological men using their natural male hormones to compete against women in a women’s competition.
That is a level of insanity that is beyond words.
But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Let’s look at some of Professor McKinnon’s words.
McKinnon says whether other competitors believe transgender women have an unfair advantage is irrelevant because she says there is no way to measure if such advantages even exist.
“This is bigger than sports and it’s about human rights,” McKinnon says. “By catering to cisgender people’s views, that furthers transgender people’s oppression. When it comes to extending rights to a minority population, why would we ask the majority? I bet a lot of white people were pissed off when we desegregated sports racially and allowed black people. But they had to deal with it.”
McKinnon says that it isn’t about what is fair and unfair in the rules — it’s a ‘human rights’ issue.
McKinnon, who teaches a class on ethics and inclusion at Charleston, cites the Olympic charter in saying that sport is a human right.
“We cannot have a woman legally recognized as a trans woman in society,” McKinnon says, “and not be recognized that way in sports. … Focusing on performance advantage is largely irrelevant because this is a rights issue. We shouldn’t be worried about trans people taking over the Olympics. We should be worried about their fairness and human rights instead.”

This is just unbelievable.
So, you can just say you’re female now — without any adjustment to hormone levels or surgery or anything and you’re allowed in a women’s competition?
That is insane!
Well, I guess we can kiss women’s sports goodbye thanks to the ‘inclusive’ left.
Where are all the feminists screaming about the ‘patriarchy’?
You know who else this makes me think of?
If only he’d known that he could’ve just identified as a woman and won every women’s championship, he might not have resorted to doping. Especially since a study done in 2017 appears to have revealed that the drug didn’t work anyway.
You live and you learn, I guess.
