A male weightlifting champion entered a competition as a woman after entry rules were relaxed and ended up setting a new “women’s record,” all specifically to prove that it is unfair to allow men to compete as women.

Weightlifting champ Ari Silverberg maintains that it is unfair to allow athletes born as men but claiming to be trans “women” to compete against natural-born women. To prove his contention, he entered a weightlifting competition as a woman after rules were changed to allow men claiming to be women to compete as women without any restrictions at all.

Silverberg is a well-known powerlifting coach and has worked with Canada’s Olympic team… and that is probably over, now that he has ridicules transgenderism.

Anyway, Silverberg jumped to action after the Canadian Powerlifting Union added a rule that transgender “women” contestants now only need to “self-identify” to enter competitions and compete against real women.

Per Reduxx:

In February, the CPU’s “Trans Inclusion Policy,” was released, containing an explicit statement that the CPU supported allowing transgender powerlifters to participate in the sex category of their choosing based on a guidance from the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES).

“Based on this background and available evidence, the Expert Working Group felt that trans athletes should be able to participate in the gender with which they identify, regardless of whether or not they have undergone hormone therapy,” the document reads, deferring to the “inclusivity in sport” guidance from the CCES.

The official women’s bench press title holder in the 84+ kilograms category is Anne Andres, a trans-identified male. Andres was in the front row and witnessed Silverberg’s demonstration at the Heroes Classic Powerlifting Meet.

Andres is a biological male athlete who identifies as a “woman” and regularly participates in female weightlifting competitions. Andres has won eight out of nine competitions he has entered in the women’s category, and is listed as a female on the Open Powerlifting rankings site.

Let’s hope more straight, non-transgender male athletes do things like this to show how absurd and unfair trans athleteism really is.
