Ever since the Obama Administration made it its mission to force transgender bathroom rights onto schools, I’ve been warning about how this trend would negatively impact women’s rights. For some reason, many feminists made a choice of siding with the leftist trend and betraying their own gender. Now, even some feminist leaders are being targeted and ostracized for daring to point out the obvious: hormones, psychology and (optionally) surgery do not turn a male into a 100% female, and denying reality is destroying women’s sports.
All over America, girls who have worked hard for years to win athletic scholarships are being left in the dust by trans competitors who were born male and now “identify” as female. In many cases, the frustrated girls and their parents have been shamed into silence if they dare complain. But anyone who doesn’t live in fantasyland can tell that students who go through puberty as males develop muscle tone, upper body strength and stamina that gives them an unfair advantage over girls. Pretending otherwise has resulted in stories like this one, about the top two finishers in girls' high school track in Connecticut both being trans students who identify as female. I’ll let the photo speak for itself:
Growing complaints about the unfairness of this are rejected by politically-correct athletic officials, who seem so concerned with diversity and non-discrimination that they have flushed all common sense down the gender-nonspecific toilet. If you complain that these “girls” are not really girls, you’re “uninformed.” Again, I refer you to the photo. Would they also claim it was “discriminatory” not to allow heavyweight boxers to compete against featherweight boxers?
At least in track, the girls only lose to the trans males. There’s not a chance of them suffering serious injury, as they can and have when forced to compete against trans boxers or wrestlers.
The latest famous victim of this national, politically-enforced mass delusion is tennis great Martina Navratilova. She’s a feminist heroine and a gay rights activist, but she’s been blasted and the LGBTQ group Athletes Ally has severed ties with her over a tweet and column in which she wrote, “You can’t just proclaim yourself a female and be able to compete against women,” that it’s insane and it’s “cheating.”
Since Martina was a professional tennis player, I guess this means we’re supposed to let men who “identify” as women play professional tennis as well, just as women’s boxing has had to accept them, with predictably bloody results. Anyone with a brain can guess what will happen. In fact, you don’t even have to guess.
Not that long ago, John McEnroe was blasted when he said that if Serena Williams were compared to male players, she wouldn’t rank in the top 700. He was accused of denigrating the best and most powerful female player in the world. But he was simply stating biological reality.
In 1998, Venus and Serena Williams were so hot at the Australian Open that they declared they could beat any male tennis player ranked around 200th in the world. German player Karsten Braasch was ranked 203rd so he took them up on it. He beat them both handily, one after the other. He later wrote that it was just for fun, and none of them took it seriously. But I’ll bet women players would take it seriously if they were forced to do it in competition.
Want to hear some more shockingly transphobic talk from female sports stars? In 2013, when some were pushing for Serena to accept a challenge from the male Wimbledon champion, she replied, “If I were to play Andy Murray, I would lose 6–0, 6–0, in 5 to 6 minutes.”
The ultimate female tennis icon Billie Jean King agreed, saying it wouldn’t be like her beating Bobby Riggs: “I mean, Bobby was a lot older than I was. The women have never said we’re better than the men, and yet, the men always come back to us, ‘Oh, you think you’re as good or better.’ No, not at all…Men have androgens that we don’t have. You’re stronger, you’re faster—we don’t argue that at all. So to be honest, Serena against Andy Murray would not work. He would win. And he knows it. She knows it.”
Who doesn’t know it? The people in charge of girls’ high school sports. Or at least, they pretend not to know it. Serena, Billie Jean and Martina used to be cool, but now, they'll have to be erased from history for their non-PC honesty. What’s cool now is denying biological reality and insisting that people with male bodies are girls, even if it destroys women’s sports.
