International Rugby League suspends transgenders from competing in women’s games, vows to do ‘more research’ before taking any further action

Following the example of world swimming, Rugby’s international governing body has also banned transgender athletes from competing in women’s matches.

The International Rugby League has issued a statement explaining that those who have transitioned from male-to-female will not be permitted to take part in sanctioned women’s rugby matches, at least until further research is carried out.

“It is the IRL’s responsibility to balance the individual’s right to participate … against perceived risk to other participants,” the league said in the statement.

While the the IRL said that it “reaffirms its belief that rugby league is a game for all and that anyone and everyone can play our sport,” it also noted that it will for now cease allowing trans people to compete in women’s games “In the interests of avoiding unnecessary welfare, legal and reputational risk to International Rugby League competitions, and those competing therein.”

“The IRL will seek to work with the eight Women’s Rugby League World Cup 2021 finalists to obtain data to inform a future transwomen inclusion policy in 2023, which takes into consideration the unique characteristics of rugby league,” the statement further notes.

The ruling comes on the heels of British cycling suspending transgender-inclusive policies in April, noting that its former guidelines were “unfair on all women riders and [pose] a challenge to the integrity of racing.”

This week FINA, Swimming’s world governing body ruled that transgender athletes who have gone through any form of male puberty must compete in a separate category that only includes those who claim their gender identity is different from their biological sex.

For transgender athletes who were born men to compete in women’s events, they must have completed their transition by the age of 12.

The move means that trans swimmer Lia Thomas who has won several events recently competing against biological women will no longer be able to compete alongside them.

Reacting to the ruling, a former teammate and a former competitor of Thomas both expressed support.

“I’m very hopeful about it,” said Thomas’ teammate, speaking anonymously to the Daily Wire, adding “I am incredibly happy that Lia Thomas will never be an Olympic gold medalist. I think that’s great.”

She also declared that she “would love” for the NCAA to rescind Thomas’ championship title, noting however that “this doesn’t actually fix the NCAA [National Collegiate Athletic Association].”

The report notes that NCAA’s current policy allows biological males to compete on women’s teams after completing just one year of testosterone suppression treatment.

The report also quotes Riley Gaines, a University of Kentucky swimmer, who has been placed below Thomas in previous competition.

“I believe Lia is not the fastest female in the 500-yard freestyle, therefore I don’t think she should be awarded as a female national champion,” Gaines said, adding that the NCAA “needs to take accountability”.

Perhaps more sporting bodies will now take a look at what is happening within their competitions and follow the example of FINA in restoring the rights of women to compete fairly.

    California Senator Accused Of Faking Anti-LGBTQ Threat

    California state Senator Scott Weiner – who in June suggested “Offering Drag Queen 101 as part of the K-12 curriculum,” for which “Attending Drag Queen Story Time will satisfy the requirement,” has been accused of a hate crime hoax.

    On Tuesday, conservative pundit Charlie Kirk made a Twitter thread pointing the finger at Weiner for contributing to the release of “thousands of pedophiles” in California “after just a few months in jail.”

    Click the tweet below to read the entire thread:

    In response, Weiner tweeted what he claimed to be a hateful, anti-LGBTQ message he received in response to Kirk’s thread.

    “Not even 24 hours after MAGA grifter Charlie Kirk tweeted homophobic lies about me, I received this thread repeating one of his lies.”

    Except, there’s a cursor at the bottom of the message, and grammar suggestions are underlined – leading many to accuse the California lawmaker of faking the entire thing.

    How long until Weiner says he copied the message into a text editor?

    Video: New Disney CEO Wants To “Quiet Things Down” After Company Exec Previously Revealed Open LGBTQ Agenda

    “Do I like the company being embroiled in controversy? Of course not”

    The new CEO of Disney, Bob Iger, announced Tuesday that he will seek to “quiet things down” at the company following several high profile controversies, most notably the admission of an executive producer under his predecessor declaring that Disney is operating an open LGBT agenda.

    Iger was filmed at a town hall meeting with Disney employees, and the footage was posted to social media by Manhattan Institute senior fellow Christopher Rufo.

    “Do I like the company being embroiled in controversy? Of course not,” Iger asserted.

    “It can be distracting, and it can have a negative impact on the company. And to the extent that I can work to quiet things down, I’m going to do that,” Iger vowed.

    Iger, who is returning to the company for a second spell as CEO after the unscheduled exit of his appointed successor, Bob Chapek, also noted that he was “sorry to see us [Disney] dragged into that battle” with Florida governor Ron DeSantis following Disney’s public rebuke of his “Parents Rights in Education” bill which prevents children as young as kindergarten age being taught about transgender and gay sex issues in schools.

    In an interview with Tucker Carlson, DeSantis and the host charged that Disney has a “fixation on the sexuality of children” pointing to recent reports that four employees of the media giant were charged with human trafficking in Florida, with one having allegedly sent sexually explicit texts to an law enforcement agent posing as a teenage child.

    During the town hall, Iger further stated that “One of the core values of our storytelling is inclusion, and acceptance, and tolerance. And we can’t lose that, we just can’t lose that.”

    He continued, “How we actually change the world for the good must continue… We’re not going to make everybody happy all the time, and we’re not [going to] try to. We’re certainly not going to lessen our core values in order to make everybody happy all the time.”

    Iger’s comments come as the company faces a $100 million loss from a production called “Strange World,” which features an open gay teen romance.

    Recall that back in March, leaked video footage revealed Disney executive producer Latoya Raveneau asserting that her team had implemented a “not-at-all-secret gay agenda” that would be “adding queerness” to programmes and films for children.

    Disney has indeed been prominently featuring transgender and LGBT characters in productions:

    Disney also angered many parents earlier this year by throwing its weight and funding behind gender reassignment procedures, even for kids:

    As we noted yesterday, a new Disney Christmas show features a group of children holding up signs that spell out “WE LOVE YOU SATAN,” prompting more backlash.

    Biden’s Gender-Fluid Nuclear Official Charged With Felony Theft After Lying To Cops

    A senior Department of Energy official was charged with felony theft after stealing a piece of luggage from the Minneapolis airport in September – shortly before taking a leave of absence.

    Sam Brinton, a gender-fluid nuclear expert who in 2015 defended underage gay prostitution website “Rentboy.com,” allegedly took a Vera Bradley suitcase worth $2,325 from the luggage carousel at the Minneapolis St. Paul Airport (MSP) on September 16, Fox News reports, citing a criminal complaint filed Oct. 16 in Minnesota state court.

    According to court filings, surveillance footage showed Brinton taking the luggage, then removing its tag identifying the owner, before leaving the airport. Brinton was observed using the luggage during at least two other trips to Washington DC – on Sept. 18 and Oct. 9.

    When a police officer called Brinton on Oct. 9 for questioning, Brinton confirmed that he still possessed the suitcase, but then claimed it was his.

    “If I had taken the wrong bag, I am happy to return it, but I don’t have any clothes for another individual,” Brinton told the officer, adding “That was my clothes when I opened the bag.

    Two hours later, Brinton called back and apologized for not being “completely honest,” adding that taking the wrong bag was a mistake because ht was tired.

    “DEFENDANT said when they opened the bag at the hotel, they realized it was not theirs,” reads the court filing. “DEFENDANT got nervous people would think they stole the bag and did not know what to do. DEFENDANT stated they left the clothes from the bag inside the drawers in the hotel room.”

    Brinton was ultimately charged with felony theft of a movable property without consent, a charge that could result in a five-year sentence, $10,000 fine or both.

    Minnesota-based outlet Alpha News first reported the charges against Brinton on Monday.

    Brinton was placed on leave about a month ago and another official was named as a replacement in the interim earlier this month, according to the Exchange Monitor which tracks government hires. The DOE didn’t explain why Brinton took leave at the time. -Fox News

    Sounds like Brinton can add ‘klepto’ to their resume.
