The ruling came in response to a lawsuit filed and won by weightlifter JayCee Cooper, a transgender who claims the organization violated the Minnesota state Human Rights Act by barring “her” from competing against real females.
USA Powerlifting was given just two weeks to “cease and desist from all unfair discriminatory practices” related to sexual orientation and gender identity. The organization must also reverse its former policy of barring transgenders entirely.
“The harm is in making a person pretend to be something different, the implicit message being that who they are is less than,” the court said in its ruling. “That is the very essence of separation and segregation, and it is what the MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency) prohibits.”

Cooper was joined by Gender Justice, a group that has as its mission “dismantling legal, structural, and cultural barriers that contribute to gender inequity.”
Why are trannies so obsessed with playing on the wrong team?
In speaking to local Minnesota television station KARE, Cooper explained that “she” was “fed up with the way that I was being treated,” and “fed up with the way that my community was being treated and enough was enough.”
“Marsha P. Johnson and the Stonewall riots and the plethora of Black trans advocates and activists throughout history – and the way they’ve led this fight – I am just one small piece that is built off of that,” Cooper is further quoted as saying.
Officials from USA Powerlifting say they are considering an appeal to the court decision, which will allow biological men to compete against biological women, this constituting an unfair advantage.
“Our position has been aimed at balancing the needs of cis- and transgender women, whose capacities differ significantly in purely strength sport,” said Lawrence Maile, the organization’s president, in a statement to KARE.
“We have received a summary judgement decision from the court finding us liable for discrimination. We respectfully disagree with the court’s conclusions. We are considering all of our options, including appeal.”
Thus far, some 18 states across the country have passed laws banning transgenders from competing in women or girls’ sports.
Back in January, World Athletics, the governing body of international track and field, released a proposal of its own to allow transgenders to compete based on their self-chosen gender identity just so long as they artificially reduce their testosterone levels prior to competition.
“The fact that World Athletics, one of the biggest, has not (put) its foot down, I think it is really, really upsetting,” complained British shot putter Amelia Strickler about that organization. “I am genuinely worried. This is my career.”
In the comment section, someone wrote that “true women in all sports competitions should walk away when learning if a man pretending to be a woman is in any competition they are in.”
“Well I feel like a billionaire. So who’s denying me my identity?” joked another. “What illegal persons are denting me my rights to be myself?”
Another pointed out that yet another corrupt court is denying science while pandering to a sexually deviant freak show of a movement that threatens to upend all women’s sports.
“It’s very simple … the chromosomes don’t lie,” this same person said. “Test those and you’ll have proof that it’s either a male or a female.”
