Ethics, science race to catch up with transgender 'rights'

"Laurel" HubbardIt's official now: Boys are boys and girls are girls regardless of screaming LGBT activists and sympathetic allies in the media.

A new article in the Journal of Medical Ethics tackles the issue of “elite transwomen” --- well-conditioned biological men --- and how their biological nature gives them a natural advantage over women in sports.  

The study criticizes guidelines from the International Olympic Committee that allow transwomen to compete with a testosterone level that is below 10 nanomoles per liter.

“This is significantly higher,” the study’s authors concludes, “than that of cis-women.”

That is because a woman’s testosterone level peaks at no more than three using the nanomoles measurement while 10 is considered a low scale for a man.

The article is being published at the same time New Zealand weightlifter "Laurel" Hubbard (pictured at top) claimed a gold medal at the Pacific Games, which caused an uproar and prompted the Games Council to review its policies. 

Transgender athlete Terry MillerDoreen Denny of Concerned Women for America, who read the study, points out that it states hormone treatments don’t affect a man’s bone structure, lung capacity, and heart size, and all of that gives a man an unfair advantage.

“The biological differences between men and women, male and female,” she tells OneNewsNow, “can never be completely mitigated by any kind of hormone treatments or therapies, any kind of surgeries, that would seek to allow for biological males to compete in women's sports.”

The issue is not new to OneNewsNow, which has reported on Target corporation’s restroom policy; the legal fight over who belongs in high school locker rooms; and more recently reported on Connecticut high school girls who filed a Title IX complaint after losing to biological teen boys, who have yet undergo hormone treatments, in track competitions.

“This is, in fact, discrimination,” Denny argues. “It is sex discrimination against females."
