From the people who constantly tell you to “follow the science” comes another piece of evidence that they aren’t concerned with any kind of scientific thought. This is the Instagram folks, who decided it was acceptable to remove a real biologist from their Instagram account posting factsual findings.
Was it a sin of his? He published a fact regarding strength differences between the sexes.
Colin Wright, an evolutionary biologist, is the managing editor at Quillette. He posted on his Instagram the results from a study that showed the strength advantage of women over men in various sports.
Instagram pulled one of my Instagram posts due to violating their “hate speech” rules. What did I post?

The study, in particular, has to do with measuring the strength of transgender “women” over actual women. Titled “Transgender Women in the Female Category of Sport: Perspectives on Testosterone Suppression and Performance Advantage”, the research found that even with hormonal suppressants, men who identify as women see their strength “only minimally reduced when testosterone is suppressed” even after three years.
This research was done before the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
This study was published in the Sports Medicine journal where it was recommended that sports facilitators consider these strength advantages before allowing these “women” to compete.
Wright noted that similar tests were conducted in Britain and found identical results. This research was published in The British Journal of Sports Medicine.
Wright noted that Wright was the transgender first author in this study.
This is what Facebook/Instagram is now considering “hate speech.” As Wright pointed out in his tweet showing his post’s removal, the chart he posted goes against the social media giant’s guidelines on “hate speech or symbols.”
Facebook/Instagram did not explain how pointing out results from a scientific study showing strength differences between women and men is hateful. Wright stated that the company had not allowed Wright to appeal his removal.
The truth is out, no matter how much they try to suppress it. Last March a poll was conducted about whether transgender people should be allowed to compete in women’s sports and 53 percent said no while only 29 percent oppose a ban.
Evidence for the unfair advantage men have over women can be seen constantly, whether it’s biking competitions, MMA fighting, wrestling, or track and field. Time after time we see men win tournaments using their strength advantage and yet, even as the science says it’s unfair, many organizations are either too woke or too scared to reject entries from men claiming they’re women.
Woke corporations like Facebook aren’t helping the situation at all as they continue to deny even scientific data to exist on its platform.
