Horror for female athletes biopic as Olympic Committee rolls out ‘Framework for Equity’

When we cannot admit that man is man and woman is woman – two of the most basic truths there – then many other distortions are needed to perpetuate that falsehood.

On Tuesday, the International Olympic Committee issued a document titled “Framework for Equity, Inclusion and Non-Discrimination on the basis of Gender Identity and Gender Difference.” It’s actually a framework, although it’s much looser than you might think. In terms of gender variations, it’s mostly rock.

Everything else in that title – especially the word “fair” – is based on a deliberate understatement of the English language. (And you better join that fiasco if you’re covering it up; Google and other tech giants love to censor and de-monetize publications that don’t follow the party line on the issue.) hey. Western Journal is fighting this – and you can help us in the fight by register.)

“Fair” is not only related to IOC allows men who identify as women to compete as women and vice versa. It has allowed that – in fact since 2015.

The document did not do what it was expected, according to Forbes, which is lowering the criteria for what it means to be considered intersex and relaxing the guideline that requires men to lower their testosterone levels if they have to compete as women.

Instead of, replace, “Framework for fairness“Removed all of that and left it to the individual sports bodies to decide the standards by which to define what a man and a woman should be.

The document reads: “It takes a cross-section of each sport and its governing body to determine how an athlete can have a disproportionate advantage over their peers, taking into account nature of each sport”.

Instead, individual sports must be based on a 10-point bracket to determine who can compete. Score 10: Inclusion, harm prevention, non-discrimination, equity, non-exploitation, evidence-based approach, prioritizing health and bodily autonomy, approach Stakeholder-centric approach, privacy, and periodic review.

Some of these are self-explanatory to anyone familiar with the language filter applied to transgender issue. For example, “Non-discrimination” means that the criteria established by individual sports bodies “must be established and implemented fairly and in a way that does not systematically exclude athletes compete based on their gender identity, physical appearance and/or gender differences. ”

Can men compete in women’s categories at the Olympics?

As long as transgender athletes do not have any advantages, they “should be allowed to compete in the category that best fits their self-identified gender identity”.

The fair classification stipulates that individual regulators can exclude anyone (and let’s face it – what we’re talking about is men who identify as women here)” have an unfair and disproportionate competitive advantage”, who poses “a risk to the physical safety of other athletes” or who claims a gender identity different from the one used consistently and consistently, to enter a competition in a different category. “

However, the matter is proving that a man competing as a woman has stood his ground. That’s why a score of five – “no prior advantage” – is a terror to female athletes.

“No athlete shall be barred from or disqualified from competition on the exclusive basis of an unverified, alleged or perceived unfair competitive advantage as a result of gender discrimination. their gender, physical appearance and/or transgender status,” it wrote.

“Until evidence… determines to the contrary, athletes will not be deemed to have an unfair or disproportionate competitive advantage due to differences in sex, physical appearance and/or transition status. their world.”

Instead, an “evidence-based approach” is introduced within the framework of the requirement that “limitations arising from the eligibility criteria be based on robust and peer-reviewed research.” ” intended to “represent a consistent, unfair, disproportionate competitive advantage in performance and/or an unforeseen risk to the physical safety of other athletes” and “the based on data collected from a demographic group that is consistent in terms of gender and athletic participation with the group for which the eligibility criteria are intended. ”

At the Tokyo Olympics in 2021, there are more than 300 women’s event. Therefore, to rule out a man wanting to compete as a woman, the burden of proof rests with the dozens of sports bodies that regulate each of these sports to produce “robust and well-reviewed research.” “peer price” applies directly to the sport in which athletes hope to compete.

Based on Yahoo SportsHowever, IOC officials acknowledged on Tuesday that “there is no scientific consensus on how testosterone affects performance across all sports,” adding that “the role of testosterone” in determining Who has the advantage of being “unclear”.

IOC spokesman Christian Klaue said: “We have not found the answer to the big question that is out there.

“But what we have been trying to do is map out a process that helps international federations come up with eligibility criteria and find a solution. And we will continue to help them do that. But obviously, this is a topic that will stick with us for a long time. … It’s a long-term project. ”

It should also be noted that the severity is unknown IOC is about doing this. The IOC’s Kaveh Mehrabi told reporters: “The framework is not legally binding, adding that policies that violate 10 points will be handled on a ‘case-by-case basis’.

The first instructions will be made after the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing. There’s a lot of uncertainty surrounding them, as you can imagine. However, two things are clear.

The first is the possibility of many transgender athletes participating, most of them female. After Laurel Hubbard, a New Zealand weightlifter, became the first man to identify as a woman to compete in his chosen gender, he became an international folk hero. Expect more “brave” athletes to follow his example.

The second is the regulations on transgender athletes will be looser. Individual sports federations are under the burden of proving that they have to find very specific evidence for their sport that men have an advantage over women (funny that men always compete as such. as a woman and not the other way around – as if there shouldn’t be enough evidence) or to allow men to compete, perhaps without the need for a testosterone test.

Say what you would say about the IOC testosterone testing method that allows transgender individuals to complete; at least it was something. What we are left with is hardly a framework and anything but fair.
