Transgender track stars in Connecticut continue stealing opportunities from actual girls. Recently the first AND second place winners in girls 55-meter dash were biological boys. Also known as boys. Some say that’s not fair. Mainly because it’s not fair.
One of their competitors, Selina Soule, says the issue is about fairness on the track with wider implications. The Glastonbury High School junior finished eighth in the 55, missing out on qualifying for the New England regionals by two spots.
Soule believes that had Miller and Yearwood not run, she would be on her way to race in Boston in front of more college coaches.
“We all know the outcome of the race before it even starts; it’s demoralizing,” she said. “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.”
We’ve actually seen this episode before, with the same dudes: Transwomen Win Girls’ Track Meet. The Looks on the Real Girls’ Faces Says it All. and Women’s Sports are Dead: ‘Female’ Transgender Track Star Slaughters Female Competition.
Yet again, men are taking opportunities away from women. Yet again, sexism is rearing its ugly head. Yet again, a sort of patriarchy is telling girls what they can and cannot do, what they should and should not expect, how they should and should not behave. Transgenderism is a form of war against women.
Before some guy chimes in with a comment like “Lol, men are better at being women than women!” check yourself for gay. Girls’ athletics are for girls, so girls can compete against other girls. The point isn’t to entertain the masses or for dick guys to beat their chests about how much stronger they are than girls. The point is to allow girls to compete. Girls like to compete, girls like to win. There is a lot of value in competition. But when boys are allowed to compete with girls, all a girl is being taught is how some men are selfish assholes and will be protected by a society which values them more than it values girls or girls’ only spaces.
Turns out that “patriarchy” is real after all. It’s just not what some feminists originally thought it was.
