The 100% Raw Powerlifting Federation has decided to remove the records set in the female division by a biological male who identified as a female.
LGBTransgenders hardest hit…
DAILY CALLER – The president of 100% Raw Powerlifting Federation removed the record set by a transgender weight lifter for a national women’s championship because the lifter is a biological man.
Paul Bossi, the president of the 100% Raw Powerlifting Federation, said Wednesday in a statement posted to Twitter that Mary Gregory is a biological man but did not reveal this to the 100% Raw Powerlifting Federation League. The group boasts of their authenticity in weight lifting, saying they are “100% raw” and do not allow any wraps, supports or enhancing drugs.
“The lifter identifies as female, and so entered the contest (with no consultation with the Meet Director or (100% Raw Officials),” Bossi said in a statement. “Our rules, and the basis of separating genders for competition, are based on physiological classification rather than identification. On the basis of all information presented to the Board of Directors for this particular case, the conclusion made, is that the correct physiological classification is male.”
“Since the lifter’s gender classification for the purpose of our rules is not consistent with female, no female records will be broken by these lifts,” the statement continues. Bossi also revealed that the 100% Raw Powerlifting Federation is creating a transgender weight lifting division to which Gregory will be transferred.
Well this is certainly good news.
It was insane to report at the end of April how this man, who transgendered himself into a female, had even been allowed to compete in the female weightlifting tournament, no less breaking female powerlifting records.
What’s curious to me is that anyone looking at “Mary Gregory” could see that he’s transgendered. That should have raised red flags right then and there, especially if their basis for separating genders is based on physiology. I suspect either someone took the politically correct approach and then it backfired.
No matter, I’m quite happy that they’ve reversed themselves on this in order to keep the competition fair.
