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.
