USA Powerlifting bans all trans women from competing as women. Finally someone has some brains and balls about this.

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.

Until some transitioning lawyer files a lawsuit claiming this is not fair to the trans freaks.

A welcome breath of common sense; let’s see if there is any more displayed in the run up to next summer’s Olympics.

Some “flake” will make a scene so as to get to compete and the international olympics will cave to it.
