What kind of BS is this from Piers Morgan?

I don’t blame Hubbard for any of this, by the way.

It’s not her fault that she’s been allowed to compete in the world’s greatest sporting event with such an obvious physiological advantage over her rivals.

Number one, there is no SHE involved. This is a MAN. A man who forced his way into a woman's area. He is bloody well aware he is a MAN. If he honestly believes otherwise, he should be in a padded cell and we ALL know that.

Hubbard should be ASHAMED of what he is doing. It is very much his fault.

'I am grateful and humbled by the kindness and support that has been given to me by so many New Zealanders,' Hubbard said.

A LOT of misogyny in New Zealand, clearly. Hubbard's enablers HATE WOMEN. There is no other way to say it. "Oh they're trying to be inclusive..." BULL. They HATE women.

How can you not blame Hubbard, lmao. It's totally his choice. The whole world is gonna watch him and call him a cheater and it is completely his own choice. No one made him compete against women. He could have competed against men. He could have not competed at all. He's old. He's only still able to compete at the top because he's a man competing against women.

Just because you are allowed to do something doesn't mean you suddenly have no responsiblity for your actions.

If TIMs show up to the Olympics this year and dominate, it won't be good for them. I'm waiting for Hubbard to strategically fake losses. The job of these first round of mediocre men will be to reinforce the illusion that they are just "regular" competitors, despite their biological advantages ("What larger lung capacity???"). The fact that these guys actually think they are doing nothing wrong speaks volumes about why they are dangerous to the safety of women and girls.

That ship has sailed. He is over 40, that is 10-15 years older than most athletes in weightlifting. I hope he wins. It will look all the more obscene and fast track the end of this insanity.

If he wins imagine how many people it will peak! LOL. "A lifter has broken several world records. It's extraordinary! I wonder how they do it? Can we bottle male puberty, Bob!? That's fantastic!".

If I was doing his PR, I'd be like, "take bronze, just pave the road- you're a brave and stunning pioneer, baby".

But let's see...

He broke his arm in a competition a couple of years ago. He might do it again - he's twice the age of other contestants and probably has lost some strength.

Serious drama will only ensue if there's a young fit TIM who doesn't pass as much as Laurel doesn't pass, winning things. IMO.

If TIMs show up to the Olympics this year and dominate, it won't be good for them.

That's how we see it, because we acknowledge reality and put women's well-being ahead of any "woke" points. But my fear is that this Woke Cult dominates the media, dominates the schools, dominates Western governments (and maybe Eastern by now), and certainly dominates Big Tech. Therefore, everyone will be beaming about his victory. Everyone with "I didn't get to march with Dr. King in Selma" envy, will think that being able to champion this "transgender civil rights victory" makes up for it (and keep pushing their SICK "Black women are women; Trans women are women" line.)

As long as they can make people think this is just like civil right for Black people and gay people, there will be massive support.

Sexual fetishes are not a civil right. That message just is not getting through :(

Championing some fat, lumpy white man in a unitard in a woman's sport- that's some delusional shit. Not all communities bow to these people. The only fight Fallon Fox lost was the one immediately after he was outed. Coincidence? And we saw what the reaction to him was among the MMA community. Only the Pink News types were out her calling him "brave". I'm not taking their opinion over actual fighters. Like I said with the attempted cancellation of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, communities of color are overwhelming not down with this shit. Like most people, many are unaware of how ridiculous the situation has become. They aren't aware of how our cultures are being used and misrepresented by to push an agenda that has nothing to do with us, that will never benefit us. The only people who are seriously buying that Black women are the same as TIMs are "so-woke I'm brain-dead" morons and perverts. TRA's ability to work under the radar and in the shadow is their strength. Please let a white TIM compare himself to Cesar Chavez or Malcolm X to actual Latinos and African Americans and see how well that goes. This show is put on for pathetic people who desperately want to opt out of being seen as privileged or oppressors.

The longer this goes on the more people peak I think. I used to be a pronouns in profile person until like a year ago.

We will definitely see strategic losses and also strategic camera angles.

Athletic TIM photo shoots are so predictable we can start directing them ourselves. Step 1: If possible, make sure no females are anywhere near the shot.Exceptions for very tall and large women or fawning Libfems (preferably looking like they are "learning a lot about womanhood") Step 2: If subject is in motion, make sure to use a drone to photograph, preferably with a soft lens and during hazy conditions...capture amongst large boulders and sequoia trees to throw scale off. Step 2a: If subject is still, make sure they are crouched with chin comfortably resting on knees, back rounded, arms wound tightly around legs. If subject has ability to further collapse body to further de-emphasize wide shoulders, and chest, do it! Step 3: If photographing Hannah Mouncey, don't bother just take a mug shot from the chin up.If photographing Fallon Fox just photograph the back of his head or space between shoulder blades in a "brave" position. Step4: When in doubt just replace actual athlete with a picture of Jazz a decade ago in a soccer uniform looking sad.... even though co-ed children's leagues litter the country.

Hey, I just learned this about Mr. Hubbard from Wiki. PRIVILEGED much?

In January 2019, Hubbard pleaded guilty to careless driving causing injury after an incident in October 2018 which left another driver with severe spinal injuries. She paid reparations and was disqualified from driving for one month. The presiding judge also ordered that Hubbard's name be suppressed to avoid distressing publicity as she trained for the Olympics.

Are they fucking serious??? Suppressing his name so he wouldn't be distressed as he maimed a person and cheats in the olympics??? WOW

Christ.

He’s not even trying to pretend to be a girl. Mediocre male? Just grow long hair, join a women’s sports team, and go win yourself some Olympic medals! Get cheered for being so super brave all at the same time 🙃

Hubbard should be ASHAMED of what he is doing. It is very much his fault.

Men have no shame. They see what they want and take it. Period.

We need to be more like that.

hubbard is an asshole and i think it's irresponsible to not hold him accountable. grown man knows better.

I am tired of people excusing these assholes ALL THE FUCKING TIMES.

The only reason why this cheater is allowed to compete in the women' s division is because HE AND OTHERS LIKE HIM FOUGHT FOR IT. If he had just stayed in his lane as he should have, we wouldn' t have this problem. But no, he' s a mediocre sportsman who thinks he deserves some throphies, and since he is only able to get them by cheating and destroying women' s rights, then he is going this way.

It’s not her fault that she’s been allowed to compete

So he has absolutely no agency whatsoever. Hubbard is an automaton who goes along wherever he is taken and just lifts up the weights in front of him? Right. Flawless endorsement of the mental capacity of TIMs.

Yeah no, I doubt most NZers are supportive. There was a poll on one of our news websites not long ago asking about supporting trans athletes competing in their opposite sex categories, and overwhelmingly 93% of respondents said no.

Hey, wow, thanks for that info! I hope that was an accurate poll. You'd think the lack of support for such insanity might have had an influence. This will be such an embarrassment for all Kiwis.

I hope it was accurate too. It was a newshub poll. 7,964 votes when I screenshot it. Hard to say if it’s across a broad demographic, but hey, at least the question is being posed and people are thinking about it. Seems to me that it’s swinging significantly in the favour of common sense though.
