Ilhan Omar Demands USA Powerlifting Be Investigated For Barring Men From Competing Against Women



Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar wants Democratic Minnesota AG Keith Ellison to investigate USA Powerlifting because it won’t allow biological males to compete as women.

Omar sent a letter to USA Powerlifting on behalf of JayCee Cooper, a male athlete who identifies as a transgender woman.

Omar accused the powerlifting organization of violating Minnesota state laws against discrimination.

WASHINGTON — Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar recommended Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison investigate USA Powerlifting for barring biological males from women’s events, according to a Jan. 31 letter she sent USA Powerlifting.

Omar called it a “myth” that men who identify as transgender women have a “direct competitive advantage” and copied Ellison on the letter, “with a recommendation that he investigate this discriminatory behavior.”

Omar sent her letter on behalf of JayCee Cooper, a biological male who identifies as a transgender woman, and whom Omar identified as one of her constituents. She signed the letter on Jan. 31, though it only became public on Tuesday after Cooper posted a picture to Instagram, where it caught the attention of OutSports.

Omar’s office confirmed the authenticity of the letter to The Daily Caller News Foundation.

USA Powerlifting in late January announced that men who identify as transgender women aren’t allowed to compete as women. Female athletes who identify as men are allowed to compete, but are required to abide by the same bans on external androgens as other athletes.

“Men naturally have a larger bone structure, higher bone density, stronger connective tissue and higher muscle density than women,” the weightlifting association notes in an online explainer. “These traits, even with reduced levels of testosterone do not go away. While may be weaker and less muscle than they once were, the biological benefits given them at birth still remain over that of a female.”

Omar’s letter accuses USA Powerlifting of violating the state’s human rights laws.

1. It's telling that no one is concerned about women competing in men's competitions.

5. I am OK with this -- no one watches "women" in these kinds of sports anyway

 

They look like men, why not just let the men compete?

I still say in 10 years all "women's" sports will be mostly if not completely trannies,

8. No figure and arms like "The Rock" -- not womanlike to me

 

And I am only one person. The people who watch woman weightlifting don't care what the lifters look like, so who cares if it is male or female.

2. Pure taqiya.

As a devout Muslima, she would not be supporting transgenderism under Sharia Law, but she can do so to manipulate unbelievers so that Islam gains political power and control in the US.

6. I'm curious

In order to identify as a transgender woman do you have to be a transgender woman?

(I'm just trying to keep up with the times.)

11. On any given day you can say you feel like a woman or man.

It's what they call gender fluid or gender queer.

A gender queer person can wake up feeling like a dude and go to bed pretending to be a woman. It's why the left wants to make everything gender neutral. They don't want a few mental defects feel bad about themselves, so the rest of society has to suffer.

13. I think her press release was misquoted.

What she really wants is for USA Powerlifting to be investigated for not tossing these homos off of a building, like they do back home in Sweet Old Somalia.

Wait...do they even HAVE any tall buildings in Somalia?

18. No

Which is why there are so many of them there, and orthopedic surgeons are in high demand.
