A group of high school girls and their parents have filed Title IX lawsuits against the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference (CIAC).
Why? Biological males who identify as females keep winning girls sports matches. It’s a headline that could only come out of the woke stupidity of the 21st century.
High school senior Chelsea Mitchell is the fastest cisgendered girl (i.e., what we just called a plain old “girl” in saner times). But she’s lost four state championships to transgender, female-identifying athletes with tallywackers—and testosterone.
I ran track and cross country in high school in the mid-1980s. The fastest times for male runners were always significantly faster than the best times for female runners.
This is because gender is not a “social construct”, but a fact of biology. And on the athletic field, what matters is physics and biology, not the latest PC nonsense.
That said, I’m in favor of accommodating transgender individuals where pronouns are concerned. Why not? There is always space for tact and consideration in this world.
But allowing biological males to compete in girls’ sports? Uh, no…That’s unscientific, not to mention grossly unfair to the actual girls who are then forced to compete against biological males.
