The British rapper “Zuby” recently posted a video on Twitter of him identifying as a female and breaking the women’s British deadlift record. The video received millions of views and he gained an even larger following due to his Twitter post. Zuby did it to make a statement in response to recent claims that there is no genetic strength advantage of a male over a female concerning strength sports.
But he has made a good point in his argument and whether it was uncalled for or justified in anyone’s eyes, he has the right to offer his take on this political matter.
Now, Jaycee Cooper who is a powerlifter from Minnesota was denied from joining USA powerlifting competition because she’s a transgender athlete. But she felt it was a really unfair situation and therefore contacted Congress who wrote a letter to the organization to no avail.
So far, USA Powerlifting hasn’t budged in their decision to ban transgender athletes from competing in their organization and there will likely be no overturning of the rules anytime soon.
Now, the fact that Zuby was able to easily beat the women’s record, showed that he got his point across as a male lifter having an obvious genetic advantage over a female. It’s simply a matter that cannot be argued in any way, as men do have a strength advantage over women due to their testosterone levels, which build bigger bones and muscles than women on average.
I keep hearing about how biological men don't have any physical strength advantage over women in 2019…
So watch me DESTROY the British Women's deadlift record without trying.
P.S. I identified as a woman whilst lifting the weight. Don't be a bigot. 😂 pic.twitter.com/dYRraHCB42

Zuby caught the attention of Ben Shapiro (Political commentator) and was even invited to discuss that subject on his talk show which should be very interesting seeing as Shapiro is outspoken on gender-specific topics.
Do you think Zuby was out of line or was his decision to get a point across justified?
