Trans-identifying man Laurel Hubbard has been named New Zealand Sports Woman of the Year. Who has not been named that?

None of these women made the cut, but Laurel Hubbard did. Hubbard didn’t win anything at the Olympics, but he made the cut.


It has to be because he’s a “trans woman” i.e. a man who identifies as a woman, and because he’s the first such man to take a woman’s place at the Olympics.

Why is that something to reward? Why is it something to make Sports Woman of the Year?

I would really like to know what the thinking is.
