Transgender Students Dominate Girls’ Track and Field Meet, So Their Parents Did This

Can you blame them?

Published

Last week, we covered a story out of Connecticut about two young transgender men who dominated the competition at a girls’ track and field meet because…they’re boys.

The boys in question, Terry Miller and Andraya Yearwood, finished first and second respectively in the 100-meter dash at the Connecticut state finals on June 4th. Miller also took first in the 200-meter dash.

If you find it stunningly unfair to the girls who worked hard to compete only to be smoked on the track by two biological males, you’re not alone, and it’s not because you’re a bigot.

It turns out that even parents who “have no problem” with the young men trying to live their lives as young women were actually passing a petition around the crowd during the meet asking the state to legally require that athletes compete in the division of their biological gender.

The Daily Wire reports:

While two transgender athletes dominated…Connecticut’s state championships for girls track and field, some parents launched petitions to make sure that competitions are restricted to athletes who were the same gender at birth.

The Hartford Courant reported that Bianca Stanescu, whose daughter Selina Soule finished sixth in the 100-meter State Open final, was circulating one petition at track meets. Her petition asks the state legislature to require athletes to compete in sports based on their gender at birth, unless the athlete has undergone hormone therapy. Soule herself said, “I think it’s unfair to the girls who work really hard to do well and qualify for Opens and New Englands. These girls, they’re just coming in and beating everyone. I have no problem with them wanting to be a girl.”

This is, of course, perfectly sensible. There’s transgender advocacy, and then there’s downright insanity, and much of transgender advocacy has simply become downright insanity lately. There are actually significant offshoots of radical leftist feminism who are starting to speak out against transgender advocacy simply because women are clearly being left behind as more and more men claim they can be women too.

It’s one thing to try to live your life as the opposite sex, it’s quite another to demand that because you want to live your life as the opposite sex you and everyone else absolutely must point-blank deny the biological facts about your body.

Trump Weighs in on Cleveland Baseball Name Change…and It’s Not Pretty

The former President was NOT happy!

Donald Trump, like a great many conservatives around the nation, isn’t all that thrilled with the way in which our national culture is changing.  Of course, this isn’t terribly surprising given that this is the nature of conserving, to allow things to remain the same or to work to bring the nation back to the way it was. So, almost predictably, Trump had plenty to say about the recent change announced by the Cleveland Indians baseball team. In a statement, Trump wrote that he is a “FORMER” baseball fan and said “a small group of people, with absolutely crazy ideas and policies, is forcing these changes to destroy our culture and heritage.” The name change came after years of protests from Native American groups and baseball fans. The former President had a far different opinion than many. Trump’s statement said he thought the name was an “honor.” However, the Lake Erie Native American Council released a statement supporting the team’s new name, WTOL reports. “We are pleased the Cleveland baseball team took a comprehensive approach to listen and learn and show it is possible to take steps toward change,” the statement read. The name change came just months after the Washington Redskins dropped their own mascot to temporarily become the “Washington Football Team”, just until a new moniker could be decided upon.

NFL Coach Sacked After Refusing to Get Vaxed

And there could be more to come still!

While the federal government has been unwilling to push any sort of vaccine mandates on the people of this great nation, there are plenty of private corporations who are setting all manner of guidelines for how and when their employees will come back to work.  And, naturally, some of these companies are going to want to push a mandatory vaccination program, not only for the sake of keeping the workforce working, but also surely on account of the way that insurance companies are going to begin reacting to bringing employees back together. In the National Football League, coaches are required to be vaccinated against COVID-19, and this requirement has now forced at least one team to make a tough decision. After refusing to receive a vaccine for COVID-19, Rick Dennison is out as a Minnesota Vikings assistant coach, sources told ESPN on Friday. Dennison had served as the Vikings’ offensive line coach/run game coordinator the past two seasons. In a statement Friday, the Vikings said they were still in discussions with Dennison on the league’s COVID-19 protocols. Another coach in the league, New England Patriots co-offensive line coach Cole Popovich, also won’t be with his team in 2021 in a decision related to the COVID-19 vaccine and NFL guidelines, league sources confirmed to ESPN. The vaccine is required for all Tier 1 staff, including coaches, front-office executives, equipment managers and scouts. Players are not required to receive the COVID-19 vaccine but will face strict protocols during training camp and throughout the season that vaccinated players will be able to forgo. The league will allow for medical or religious exemptions to the policy, however. Dennison did not qualify for such an exemption, according to the team.
