Would have won in the mens division with the score ‘she’ recorded

In another flagrant example of cultural insanity, a person who is clearly biologically a man was allowed to easily win a prominent women’s surfing competition in Australia.
Surfing Western Australia notes that trans competitor Sasha Jane Lowerson was awarded first place in both the Open Women’s Longboard and Open Women’s Logger.

It wasn’t even close, with a 4 point and 2.5 point gap between second place in the respective events.
Males competing in women's division is the ultimate chauvinistic fuck you. The 43-year-old Sasha Jane Lowerson, who was crowned the men’s champion three years ago, just won both the Open Women’s and Open Logger divisions in Australia, by obliterating the "competition". pic.twitter.com/KhzuHfGmQl— Mona ⬆️ (@Dana27009326) May 19, 2022
Lowerson would have won in the mens division with the score ‘she’ recorded:
Lowerson said “To be the first transgender woman competing in surfing hasn’t been an easy ride emotionally but the amount of support I’ve been showed has been phenomenal and I’m so grateful to be involved, welcomed and embraced within the longboard community in Australia.”
Well done indeed fella.
When Lowerson was a man called Ryan Egan as short a time ago as 2019, he was winning male surfing competitions.
Surf site Beach Grit notes that Egan/Lowerson is now “absolutely demolishing the women’s division.”

There has been backlash among some swim coaches and officials over Thomas being allowed to compete in the women’s division, with one prominent USA official urging that “Everything fair about swimming is being destroyed.”
The World Swimming Coaches Association (WSCA) has recommended that FINA, a governing body for aquatic sports, create a transgender division to account for men’s biological advantages over women.
