Laurel Hubbard, a biological male who calls himself a female, competes in women’s weightlifting events.  Recently, he took home two golds and a silver in the Pacific Games.

British television personality Piers Morgan tweeted out what most people believe regarding the trans-takeover of women’s sports. 

“This is insane,” Morgan tweeted.  “Women’s rights to basic fairness & equality are getting destroyed at the altar of political correctness.”

Morgan’s post went viral, as transgendered rights folks accused him of denying science, of being insane, and of being a bigot.  One person who was in line with Morgan wrote, “I agree. And what exactly is this doing for women’s sport? There’s very little data on transitioned strength athletes. And at least until there are more studies on the impact a sex change has on a male body, I am sceptical about what should be allowed in women’s sport.”

Morgan responded, “Trans women born with biological male bodies have a massive physical advantage against women born with female bodies in any sport where power & strength are significant factors. This shouldn’t be a contentious claim, it’s just a rather obvious fact.”

This poured fuel on the fire of the social media discontent.  Though almost everything does these days, these Twitter exchanges are significant because Morgan is not known as a conservative and even supports LGBTQ causes.  However, he refuses to go along to get along with the transgendered narrative.  When the British LGBT Awards criticized his tweets, he fought back.

“I’m not transphobic & have always supported transgender rights,” Morgan tweeted.  “So why are you encouraging this hate just for clicks? It’s not ‘transphobic’ to believe it is grotesquely unfair for transgender women born with male biological bodies to compete in sports like weightlifting against women born with female biological bodies. It’s common sense. Transgender rights shouldn’t damage women’s rights.”

Why do leftists hate real female athletes so much?  It is empirically true that men who compete in most women’s sports dominate due to superior size and strength.  We know this because we never women who pretend to be men participating in men’s sports. Everyone knows – though not everyone admits – that they’d get crushed due to inherent biological differences.  

Morgan pushing back against the transgendered activists’ talking points should be praised.  This is an “emperor has no clothes” moment and Morgan has found the courage to tell the truth.

May we all.
