The 2020 Summer Olympics will be in Tokyo next year. I think that’s going to be pretty exciting.
I mean, I get it — most people don’t care about most of the sports and most of the athletes. But there’s something deep within the human spirit that loves these competitions — the thrill of them; the tribalism; but also the sportsmanship and camaraderie.
And of course it’s big business.
NBC paid $4.4 billion for the broadcast rights through till next year, and another $7.65 billion for the dozen years after that.
So what do you think of this BBC story?
It will take female athletes "being thrown under the bus" at Tokyo 2020 before changes are made to transgender rules, says ex-swimmer [and Olympic medalist] Sharron Davies.
International Olympic Committee (IOC) guidelines state that transgender women must suppress testosterone levels for at least 12 months before competition.
But in March, Davies and others wrote to the IOC calling for more research.
In Tokyo, Laurel Hubbard of New Zealand could become the first transgender female to win an Olympic medal.
The 41-year-old weightlifter won two golds at the Pacific Games earlier in July.
Sorry, Laurel Hubbard isn’t a woman. Until just a few moments ago, Laurel Hubbard was Gavin Hubbard. He won some medals when he was twenty — he won them as a young man.
But he’s not a young man now; he’s a middle aged man, and he can’t win anymore. So Gavin is now “Laurel” Hubbard. And he’s crushing it.
Because I don’t care how strong you are as a girl, you’re not going to be stronger than a man who says he’s a girl, even if he’s in his forties and washed up.
Now female athletes are dropping weight classes to avoid having to compete against Hubbard.
There’s a reason why men and women compete in separate competitions now. There’s reason why sports have different gradations — in boxing, you match heavyweights against heavyweights; lightweights against lightweights. Because, yes, we know that a heavyweight could probably crush a lightweight 99 times out of 100. So that’s not sport, is it?
So if Gavin, I mean “Laurel” Hubbard is now allowed to beat all the girls, will he go to the Olympics, and bravely beat all the girls there?
My point is: is anyone going to pay to watch that?
The Olympics; all of its sponsors; all of the government and quasi-governmental agencies involved in the Olympics and amateur sports — they have to stop pretending that you’re feminist, or even for equal treatment of women. You’re not.
You’re about to have a mass purge of every athletic woman in the world.
Because you’ve found something more woke than women — men who say they’re women.
You know, someone might even call that misogynist...

Democratic presidential candidate and military veteran Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) is suing Google, who she claims blocked her advertising account right after the first Democrat presidential debate, when Gabbard became the most-searched-for candidate in the Democrat field.
