(Natural News) Far be it from us to tell anyone how to live but someone has to say it: There are only two genders in this world of ours, male and female, and it doesn’t matter how someone “identifies,” that biological fact is established and unalterable.
Granted, modern medical technology may be able to ‘transform’ a male into a female and vice versa, but regardless of that, the gender we are born with is always going to be dominant in terms of our physiology and our psyche.
With that being said, the Left is nevertheless hard at work trying to convince us that gender is a ‘fluid’ thing and in some cases, an outright choice, so old societal constructs like “male” and “female” sports are no longer necessary or relevant. (Related: Trans-men desperately trying to beat women in women’s sports with unfair muscular advantage… leftists applaud.)
That’s why they go along with allowing biological males to participate in (and dominate) all-female events simply because they ‘identify’ as a girl, claiming — remarkably and unbelievably — that there are no physical differences between the sexes.
One example of this expanding lunacy is playing out to much controversy (right?) in Connecticut. Earlier this month, as Matt Margolis at PJ Media pointed out, “transgender athlete” Terry Miller of Bloomfield High School in Connecticut recently won a track-and-field sprint over another “transgender” runner, Andraya Yearwood as well as actual female contestants in an all-girls event earlier this month. These two boys — and biologically, that’s what they are — have been at the center of mounting gender controversy since electing to identify as the other sex:
Last year, Miller and Yearwood finished in the top two spots for the state’s 100-meter state outdoor championships. Miller also won the 300-meter state indoor championship this season. The event at issue now is the 55-meter dash at the state open indoor track championships. Miller and Yearwood once again took the top two spots, with Miller setting a record of 6.95 seconds, and Yearwood finishing in 6.95 seconds. The third place winner, a biological female, finished in 7.23 seconds.
Deep-blue Connecticut is one of 17 states that allow biological boys and girls to compete in each others’ high school sporting events. Margolis, quoting the website TransAthlete.com, which tracks such things, noted that seven states, meanwhile, “make it difficult for transgender athletes to compete while in school, like requiring athletes to compete under the gender on their birth certificate…”
Gender-specific sports are no longer fair when the gender specification no longer matters
Well, the smarty-pants Leftists have figured out a way around that little biological pigeonhole: They are simply convincing hospitals and states to leave gender identity at birth as ‘neutral.’
That seems like a lawsuit waiting to happen; governments — the federal government, especially — rely on gender statistics for a lot of things. So does the Left when you think about it; extrapolating this ‘non-binary’ sexual ID at birth craze out several years, how will liberals complain that too many men ‘run things’ when we don’t know how many ‘men’ there are any more?
In any event, opposition to transgender craziness in high school sports is growing. Some groups are trying to use established scientific data to demonstrate that men/boys, on average and very much in most cases, are far stronger and more agile physically than women/girls.
Also, biological girls, such as Selina Soule, a Glastonbury (Connecticut) High School junior who lost to Miller and Yearwood, are complaining about losing out to biological boys. In Soule’s case, her recent eighth-place finish in a 55-meter race won by Miller cost her a chance to compete in regional competitions throughout New England.
“We all know the outcome of the race before it even starts; it’s demoralizing,” she said, according to Margolis. “I fully support and am happy for these athletes for being true to themselves.
“They should have the right to express themselves in school, but athletics have always had extra rules to keep the competition fair,” she added.
