USA Powerlifting bans all trans women from competing as women

JayCee Cooper won a state women’s title after being barred from competing as a woman at USA Powerlifting events.

USA Powerlifting has banned all transgender women from competing as women, even as a trans powerlifter in Minnesota recently won a state championship with another association, setting a state record.

JayCee Cooper, a trans woman, had applied last year to compete in a recent USA Powerlifting event in Minnesota. In December her application was denied.

“Male-to-female transgenders are not allowed to compete as females in our static strength sports as it is a direct competitive advantage,” wrote USAPL Therapeutic Use Exemptions Committee Chair Kristopher Hunt in an email to Cooper.

Hunt followed up with Cooper in January with this explanation:

“Transgender male to female individuals having gone through male puberty confer an unfair competitive advantage over non-transgender females due to increased bone density and muscle mass from pubertal exposure to testosterone.”

Pushback has finally started. Great.
Men in drag are not women, never will they be.
Self mutilation does not a woman make.
We do not need to pretend that insanity is normal.

5. Allowing transgender male to female athletes to complete with female athletes...

is just another way to keep real women down.

8. That problem in that statement

is claiming that a biological male who is choosing to live life as a trans is a trans woman. That person is not a woman it would be fair to call that individual a trans man, meaning a man (a biological distinction) who is trans and as such choosing to adopt the norms of a stereotypical feminine gender (a non-biological distinction). They are trying very hard to screw up the language to cause confusion.
