A brawny transgender high school student who has been taking testosterone to become a male has won the Texas girls’ state wrestling championship for the second consecutive year. Only this year, the fear of being called politically incorrect was finally outweighed by anger at being pressured to deny reality, and the win was greeted with boos from the crowd. The athletes and parents are sick of seeing girls cheated out of titles by students who are far stronger than them, whether it’s biological girls on testosterone supplements or biological males taking estrogen.
They argue that the push to recognize transgender rights is destroying girls’ and women’s sports. They’re starting to figure out what I’ve been warning about for years: in the fast-moving, ever-changing world of leftist victim group politics, women are now at the back of the line for protection. Supporters of transgender athletes claim they’re “breaking down walls,” but what they’re actually doing is breaking their female competitors’ bones.
This student argues that if Texas officials don’t like it, then they should change the laws. State law requires students to compete under the gender on their birth certificate. It also bans the use of testosterone and other performance-enhancing hormones, unless prescribed by a doctor, and that exception allows transgender athletes with unfair advantages to compete.
Okay, I agree: change the law and make it fair. Get rid of the prescription loophole and ban the use of PE supplements for everyone. The girls this student trampled couldn’t get testosterone injections, but I guess their dreams of winning a title or scholarship don’t matter. If you want to take hormones, fine: choose between doing it in high school and not competing in sports or doing it after high school. Gender transitioning is your personal issue. If it matters that much to you, then take responsibility for your decisions and stop demanding that the entire world, and even reality itself, bend to suit your personal desires and ambitions.
