Transgender 'Woman' Wins Weightlifting Title, Breaks Records

Transgender 'Woman' Wins Weightlifting Title, Breaks Records

Transgender weightlifter Laurel Hubbard dominated a group of women in his first international competition, breaking multiple records in the process. 

The media in New Zealand is celebrating his victory as "historic."

From the NZ Herald:

Kiwi weightlifter Laurel Hubbard has dominated her first major competition, taking out the Australian International in Melbourne on a night she made history as the first transgender athlete to represent New Zealand. 

Hubbard, 39, won the women's over 90kg division at the Melbourne event, setting four unofficial national records in the process. Hubbard lifted a combined total of 268kg - 19kg better than silver medallist Iuniarra Sipaia of Samoa.

...Hubbard's selection was a considered a pioneering moment in sport for the LBGT community. Further ground could yet be broken, with tonight's performance in Melbourne expected to go a long way to securing Hubbard's place in the team for the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games next year.

Radio NZ, who praised Hubbard for "creating history," said he's "the daughter of cereal magnate and former Auckland mayor Dick Hubbard, and is a leading contender for the New Zealand team to compete at next year's Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast."

There is nothing even mildly weird about this. Anyone who has a problem with men who say they're women dominating female sports is clearly just a hate-filled, anti-woman bigot.

Erdogan Threatens Europeans: You 'Will Not Walk Safely On The Streets'

Erdogan Threatens Europeans: You 'Will Not Walk Safely On The Streets'

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan escalated his rhetoric tenfold Wednesday after he seemingly threatened to kill Europeans in "the streets" throughout "the world" if the current diplomatic row with Germany and the Netherlands continues.

From The Independent:

Turkey has been mired in a diplomatic row with Germany and the Netherlands after they banned Turkish officials from campaigning in support of an April referendum on boosting the Turkish President's powers.

"If Europe continues this way, no European in any part of the world can walk safely on the streets," Mr Erdogan told journalists in Ankara. 

He added: "We, as Turkey, call on Europe to respect human rights and democracy."

That sounds like he's threatening Europeans worldwide with terrorism, does it not?

Hours after Erdogan's threat was issued suspected Mohammedans carried out a dual-pronged terror attack at the UK Parliament and the Westminster Bridge.

Erdogan encouraged Turks to demographically conquer Europe at a rally last Friday, telling them to "have not just three, but five children." 

"The place in which you are living and working is now your homeland and new motherland," he said. "Stake a claim to it. Open more businesses, enroll your children in better schools, make your family live in better neighborhoods, drive the best cars, live in the most beautiful houses."

On Sunday, Erdogan said Merkel was "employing Nazi measures" by banning Turkish diplomats from lobbying Turks in Europe to vote in favor of a measure to expand his presidential powers.

"When we call them Nazis they [Europe] get uncomfortable. They rally together in solidarity. Especially Merkel," he said. "But you are right now employing Nazi measures. Against who? My Turkish brother citizens in Germany and brother ministers."

Turkey's Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu threatened last Thursday to "blow the mind" of Europe by sending 15,000 so-called "refugees" a month to the EU.

Turkey's Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu also threatened on the same day that "Holy wars will soon begin in Europe."
