Bethany Hamilton Slams Surfing Organization For Allowing Gender Confused Men To Compete As Women

Yet another organization trying to let biological men take everything away from biological women

Surfer Bethany Hamilton speaks out against new rule allowing transgender women to compete with females

Not Bethany

Surfer, mom and book author Bethany Hamilton is speaking out against the World Surf League’s newly announced policy that would allow for male-bodied individuals known as transgender women to compete at the highest level in professional surfing against other women.

The Hawaii-based Hamilton is raising questions about the rules change, asking whether other professional surfers were consulted about it beforehand – and wondering where this will lead.

She said on her Instagram account in a video this weekend that is now being widely shared, “The World Surf League has officially made the rule that male-bodied individuals known as transgender athletes can officially compete in the women’s division.”

She added, “The World Surf League says they are following the Olympic guidelines.” (snip)

“How is this rule playing out in other sports, like swimming, running and MMA?” she asked.

“Have any of the current surfers in the World Surf League been asked what their thoughts and opinions are on this new rule before it was passed or announced? Should there be a conversation?” she added.

Is there as much difference between men and women in surfing, as in some other sports? Both can surf wonderfully, especially at the professional level. Both can be very fluid. I dare say, a lot of the movements made with legs can both be powerful. You don’t necessarily need the same difference in leg power that one may see in soccer or swimming. Except in terms of big wave surfing, when we’ve seen women have trouble with legs and core. One big difference is in upper body, the shoulders and back, needed to catch waves and control movements. Another is in ankle movement, where men tend to have a physiological advantage.

There are a lot of differences in casual surfing. Men tend to simply chill in the lineup, not talking much, just looking out at the ocean. Women like to socialize more, and aren’t particularly thrilled with the stoney faces of men, thinking men do not want them there. Not true. But, we’re talking about competition, not casual. I know the female pros will put most casual men surfers to shame.

I’ve watched women surf, and it is great. You can see a slightly better bit of slashing and hard turns from men, but, both can do aerials, 360s, and other tricks. Women tend to be a bit more fluid. They also tend to ride long boards more, but, we’re talking competition surfing. I’m betting there would not be as much difference competitively as in track, but, still, women have worked hard to find their place in a sport that tended to be mostly men, why are they trying to erase them?

She added, “I personally think that the best solution would be to create a different division so that all can have a fair opportunity to showcase their passion and talent – and I think it’s really hard to imagine what the future of women’s surfing will be like in 15-20 years down the road if we move forward allowing this major change.”

Obviously, she’s getting majorly attacked for this opinion, particularly from people who do not surf. And will never surf. And do not even live near any play one can go surfing. Why do they want to erase women? Meanwhile

US soccer star Becky Sauerbrunn supports trans girls playing youth sports, takes aim at Missouri lawmakers

Becky Sauerbrunn, a U.S. women’s soccer star who has won two FIFA World Cups and a gold medal in the 2012 Olympics, made her stance clear on bills that would bar transgender girls from playing sports with biological females.

Sauerbrunn’s op-ed was published in the Springfield News-Leader in Missouri on Sunday morning and goes after a state bill that would bar transgender girls from playing on girls’ sports teams. The 37-year-old center back wrote she can “assure you that playing with or against transgender women and girls is not a threat to women’s sports.”

Yeah, yeah, let’s see how she feels when a gender confused male starts playing on her team, or a team she’s playing against, and outperforming actual women. Because there is a big difference in abilities, hence why a women’s teams keep losing to men’s teams, such as when US women’s team lost 5-2 to an under-15 high school team. If women won’t fight for their place in certain sports, well, let them become male.

    I don’t care. Much of what passes for women’s sports is either rich peoples hobbies or charities leaching off men’s sports.

  2. Mr. Proton says:

    A bonus bikini shot this week. Cool.

  3. Dana says:

    I’m pretty sure that the distinguished Mr Dowd will be calling for legal action against these ‘transgender’ rights insurrectionists for trying to interrupt the legal duties of the Oklahoma state legislature.

    • CarolAnn says:

      Oh no. Only white middle class folks can be insurrectionists when they march for the right to audit the fake results of a stolen election. Why do you think despots like Elwood will deny and fight like hell till we’re all dead but never, ever consider they could be wrong (even tho they’ve seen the same videos and affidavits we have) or think an audit necessary?


      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Marching protesters were not arrested or accused of insurrection. On the other hand, those “protesters” who attacked officers and entered the Capitol to stop the certification of the vote were arrested and were indeed involved in insurrection.

        There is no credible evidence that the election was stolen. Anyone still making that claim are deranged.

        • ruralcounsel says:

          Only people who continue to declare there was no credible evidence the election was stolen are deranged. Or just obfuscating in order to protect a false president. And they have been very successful at that obfuscating by totally ignoring the evidence. However denying and ignoring evidence doesn’t change the fact that it exists.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            There are allegations, which are not evidence.

            If you find the “switched” votes, the “illegal” ballots, the “miscounts”, I’ll join you!

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      If the protesters break the law, they should suffer the consequences just like the Jan 6 insurrectionists.

  4. Jl says:

    Any proof of an “insurrection” yet? Must have been a special “insurrection”, though, especially since no weapons were involved…

  5. CarolAnn says:

    There is no credible evidence that the election was stolen. Anyone still making that claim are deranged.

    There is plenty of evidence the election was stolen, you just refuse to see it along with your corrupt politicians, lawyers and media. Just to start with we all now know thanks to Elon Musk that there was a dedicated collusion and conspiracy between the media the DNC and social media to black out information about the biden corruption and to censor any Trump support on the social media. THEY CONSPIRED AND CANCELLED THE PRESIDENT AND REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE FOR RE ELECTION FROM ALL SOCIAL MEDIA DURING AN ELECTION. THAT IN ITSELF CORRUPTED AND STOLE THE ELECTION.

    Refusing to adjudicate and investigate the thousands of instances of sworn affidavits and available video tapes showing voter fraud is also failure to respect the rights of the people.

    You need to wake up. Defending a corrupt and illegal junta is not the way. Denying the people’s right to protest by calling it an insurrection is not only a lie but a communist style lie of depravity and shows you to be a liar yourself.

    We Americans have the right under the first amendment to confront our government to redress our grievances. We were ignored then called names and some were murdered, incarcerated and illegally detained in a cruel and unusual way. And are still being held over two years later without trial. You say we insurrected? That’s the real insurrection, having our rights stolen by fellow Americans.

    You use your white supremacy to crush all of us that threaten your privilege. You are racist white supremacists.


  6. Professor Hale says:


    Ms Carolann, I would like to politily disagree with your statement even though you feel very strongly about it, as evidenced by all caps and BOLD.

    The examples you describe are not a corruption or stealing. That is just how the game is played. it was a principle false argument about Trump when he did it better in 2016. Democrats learned from that and vowed individually and collectively to not let that happen again. So they took control of the content on their sites to minimize Trumps positives and blare out his negatives, even the made up ones. This is nothing new and the news media has been doing it since Lincoln was in office. People who own the media control what gets printed.

    The examples of stealing the election are the false votes. Manufactured votes. Vote switching by machine, and mail in vote fraud.

    Even mail in voting itself is not an indicator of corruption, only the fraud associated with it. mail in just make the fraud easier.

    The use of certain government offices to spy on Trump and incessantly leak negative things about him, even make -believe negative things is an example of corruption in those agencies, but not of stealing the election.

    At this point, Republicans should all be on notice that the entire FBI and DoJ, as well as significant other parts of the federal government, are all Democrats and will cover for Democrat officeholders and undermine Republican office holders. It is just how things are. If Republicans can’t win under those conditions, they should go home.

    “Politics ain’t beanbag…” oft-repeated from writer, reporter and editor, Finley Peter Dunne, used as a quote from his fictional character Mr. Dooley (Mr. Dooley in Peace and in War 1899). Dunne was a critic of President Teddy Roosevelt who enjoyed the barbs, even having them read at weekly Cabinet meetings! They later became good friends.

    We wish politics WAS beanbag – but it isn’t. Anyway, if the reactionary rightists of the GOP had actual evidence of voter fraud, illegal voting, machines switching votes, etc, we’d have heard it and seen it by now. But twitter, they howl!!

    The constant drumbeat from the reactionary right about “the steal” is just the whining of losers, led by the The Biggest Loser of them all, our ex-, Donald J Trump. No one likes losing, and often blame the refs. Vince Lombardi said, “Show me a good loser, and I’ll show you a loser!” – there’s a difference between graciously accepting a genuine defeat and caterwauling for two years that the other team and the refs cheated their way to an 8 million vote landslide. Arguably the fiercest competitor in sport, QB Tom Brady, lost 3 Super Bowls, but we don’t remember him accusing the others of cheating.

    It’s time to put your big-boy britches on get back the job of America.

    • drowningpuppies says:

      Another meaningless reinterpretation of another copy&paste from Rimjob.
      Thanks dumbass, you’re fooling no one.
      The problem with America ain’t Trump you silly little child.

      Bwaha! Lolgf

    It’s time to put your big-boy britches on get back the job of America.

    We’d love to but America has been stolen and the thieves are YOU!

    You have seen the same articles, statements and videos we have. You are blocking justice for political reasons. Nothing can be evidence in your eyes because you begin from denial and move backward. You are a denialist and a liar if you claim nit to have seen enough evidence to at least require an investigation and audit. But when you have corrupt judges in your pocket and both the media and social media are rigged in your favor I guess you don’t need to be fair, open and honest. I guess the corruption of the once great democrat party is complete when they can’t win without the cheat factor.

    The once great American republic is now run by an illegitimate, corrupt senile old white racist and he’s appointed people who have no abilities but whom fit his leftist idea of what America is. His obedient followers repeat every lie, never vary from the official party narrative and have the moral turpitude of a frontier whore. Ever watch the news from the several stations report on an event? All say the EXACT SAME THING except sometimes FOX. And they repeat it over and over.

    And they’re effective too. Look how many people still buy into the Covid crap, lockdowns, masks, the fake non-vaccine. Even now after the CDC itself has admitted they are wrong. Or how many actually believe the climate will change so fast and so acutely we will not be able to adjust or advance technology to cope so we have to destroy Western Culture an its progress.

    Trying to coexist with an American leftist is like trying to make friends with a rattlesnake. Neither has morals, compassion nor understanding they are not alone here.

    We have right too and one of those rights is to a free and fair election. The object isn’t to get the most people voting, the object is to get the BEST PEOPLE ELECTED. We can’t get the best elected if the worst are the voters.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      You’re nuts.

      The American far-right exists as a cesspool of ignorance.

      We get it. The far-right wants only white conservatives to vote.

  9. CarolAnn says:

    Well you sure did tell me! You don’t get anything. Never have. That’s why as a leftist you believe anything your leaders tell you. In lock step. Unison.

    I’d love you to explain what you think a “far-right” believes because in todays America I see only far leftist commies/nazis and regular people. I guess in your mind you probably think Dana, drowningpuppies, Teach, david, Professor Hale Jl, myself and the others are all far-right. Once again only by projection.

    Your white privilege bleeds through almost every comment you make especially when you spit out stupidity like “The far-right wants only white conservatives to vote.”. Only an ignorant moron would make such a broad statement about tens of millions of loyal Americans. And only an arrogant racist would conflate with intelligent voters with white voters.

    You really need to explore sitting down with a specialist to try and figure out why a different view than yours triggers you into a hateful rage.

    Just remember, White lives matter too.
