Theblaze.com reported this week “Powerlifter Mary Gregory — a biological male who competes as a female — made headlines last month after breaking multiple women’s powerlifting records, which sparked widespread outrage.”
But after a review, the Raw Powerlifting Federation has stripped the weightlifter of the titles because they determined Gregory was not eligible to compete as a woman.
Some things are real. Some things are make-believe. Knowing the difference is critically, crucially important.
Let’s imagine that the X and Y-chromosomes no longer have anything to do with the biological sex of a human. From now on you are free to medically treat males and females however you want. Cervical and prostate cancer screenings are no longer necessary because reproductive organs are just an old delusion of gender-phobic, reproductive tyranny.
To act upon this train of thought is very dangerous and will cause great harm… probably fatal harm. The example I just used is easy to agree with because the physical laws of the universe – like the laws governing health and reproduction – are quite easy for us to discern.
Unless you are a transgender powerlifter?
Raw Powerlifting Federation President Paul Bossi released a comprehensive statement explaining why the federation stripped Gregory of the titles.
“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,” Bossi explained.
“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,” he added.
Gregory was “infuriated” by Bossi’s statement, especially since the weightlifter has been taking female hormones for a whole year.
“I feel like I’m being tarred and feathered as this person who got in there, competing against 50 women, and just stomping all over them, and won by some magnificent total,” Gregory said. “Not to denigrate my own accomplishments or achievements, I’m so very proud of them, but the numbers that I lifted aren’t class leading.”
You see, even Gregory knows deep down that he is a male. Based upon his statement, he is acknowledging the laws of Nature and Nature’s God, while denying them with his actions.
If you, perchance, have swallowed the notion that these moral laws don’t exist, or that you can invent them and discard them at your will, or if you think that only the ones that you actually happen to believe in actually apply to you, then you may be careening carelessly toward the end of a moral cliff. You see, you don’t break the rules; the rules break you. And we might do well to remember that this is true not just for us as individuals, but also for our community and our country.
If our country continues on a path of denying the fixed, moral laws of the universe, this is a clear indication that we are no longer acting in accordance with reality. It is not real to think that a person, or a people, can do these things without disastrous consequences.
Shouldn’t we pay attention to what our founding documents declare? When God made the world he made physical and moral laws. To think or to act as if they don’t exist is make-believe… dangerous… deadly.
