Men posing as women have the edge in women’s sports

by | Nov 23, 2022 | Latest, Opinion

WASHINGTON, DC, Nov 18 — “In terms of absolute strength – that is, without regard for body size, weight or composition – the average man tends to be considerably stronger than the average woman.  Specifically, the absolute total-body strength of women has been reported as being roughly 67% that of men,” according to the experts at Princeton University. It’s a fact. And it begs the question, who has the advantage in an athletic competition in which a real woman is pitted against a man impersonating a woman? “Such a situation was unthinkable throughout history but it has emerged as an issue in a 21st century, anything goes, transgender world,” says Rebecca Weber, CEO of the Association of Mature American Citizens.

In her AMAC Better For America podcast interview with All-American University of Kentucky Swimmer Riley Gaines, the top female swimmer in America, Weber dug deep into this subject. Gaines lost out to a fellow who calls himself Lia Thomas who, presenting himself as a woman, became the first transgender swimmer to take the NCAA National Trophy away from a biological woman.
