ACLU Attempts To Debunk “Myths” About Trans-Athletes

The ACLU is here to tell us that all those issues with trans-athletes in high school and college sports are just myths. In a twitter thread posted last night, the ACLU posted their version of FACTS regarding trans-athletes.

“There is no one way for our bodies to be.” Wow. This completely disregards the fact that, from BIRTH, we are unique to ourselves. This completely disregards the fact that, from BIRTH, our biological and genetic makeup will always stay that of male or female. Oh sure, hormone replacement therapy can end up medically helping someone become a man or a woman. But the underlying physiological, genetic, and biological makeup will STILL tell the world that that person is a male or female even if said person identifies as the opposite. 

Here’s two more of the ACLU’s “facts.” 

No and NO. Trans athletes in sports are largely males who’ve now identified as women. Stories about across the high school, college, and professional sports world of those same athletes now beating women handily. Some of those trans athletes couldn’t even get to tenth place when competing as men. 

“Izzy Case, a state-qualifying high school track runner in Colorado, has competed against a male “identifying” as a female. Although Izzy has been able to beat the transgender athlete by several places, she knows the competition could be drastically more unfair in college.

“I’m in high school now, so transgender females are not…completely developed yet,” Izzy said. “But at the college level, if boys are competing in female events, they are a lot more muscular.””

That is absolutely true. No matter the hormone therapy, surgeries, or what have you, boys and men identifying as trans-gender will always have a significant physical advantage over women in sports. It is a medical fat that mens bodies are more muscular, have bigger bones, and have the advantages testosterone gives them. None of that goes away once they start to identify as a woman. None of it. 

As for the ACLU’s assertion that trans athlete inclusion benefits everyone? 

“To take one example cited by the Connecticut female runners in their complaint against the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference, the fastest female sprinter in the world is American runner Allyson Felix, a woman with more gold medals than Usain Bolt. Her lifetime best for the 400-meter run is 49.26 seconds. Based on 2018 data, nearly 300 high-school boys in the U.S. alone could beat it.”

That is a prime example of how social justice constructs have led to ‘lets include everyone so competition is FAIR!’ Except that this is gaming the system in order to be politically correct. This is gaming the system to the detriment of EVERYONE whether that person is male, female, or transgender. 

“It’s the profound and glaring injustice of it: the spectacular records and achievements that Jackie Joyner, Althea Gibson and Wilma Rudolph would never have achieved had the world pitted their bodies against men.

Here’s another “fact” for the ACLU to consider if they weren’t so busy virtue signaling. 

Indeed. It’s called genetics, biology, and the fact that the physical makeup of women puts them at a competitive disadvantage in men’s sports. 

“In 2019, the Karolinska Institute found that even puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones do not diminish the benefits of male athlete’s natural testosterone. Although biological males can substantially reduce their testosterone levels after hormone therapy, the extensive research on irreversible physiological traits such as bone density after puberty clashes against the ACLU’s argument that what should determine the eligibility of an athlete is one’s “choice” of gender.”

So no, don’t tell me that trans-athletes competing in women’s sports will be beneficial to everyone. It won’t. 

The ACLU and other organizations are pushing for trans-athletes to be recognized and approved for sports and other activities no matter the issues this brings to the table. In fact, they are on board with having federal funding removed from schools and colleges if they don’t comply. 

Senator Rand Paul raised these concerns this week. 

One thing you’ll notice is that Cardona avoided a direct answer. Why? Because if he was even remotely truthful he would’ve had to have replied YES to all of Senator Paul’s questions. 

Here’s a fact for the ACLU and others promoting the belief that trans-women competing in women’s sports will be wonderfully beneficial to everyone. Including trans-women in women’s sports EXCLUDES women! It disenfranchises women. This policy discriminates against…women! 

The ACLU and others can do their damndest to ignore real medical science, but the fact remains, promoting trans athletes means everyone loses.

    We are where we are due to modern liberalism and feminism. Let the trans run, lift weights, play volleyball, whatever. This is what they voted for, let them enjoy the fruits of their efforts. And when they cry for being shut out of scholarships, I will sit back and enjoy their lamentations!

    If I was a female contestant I would refuse to participate and sabotage the event. On the other hand, trans should be handicapped with bowling balls tied to their legs.

    Honestly, I don’t think it is fair that i even have to compete in the olympics. My truth is that I have won.

    That infinitesimal shred of credibility that the ACLU still had? Call off the search, put away the microscopes; turns out it was a myth.

  • Bandit says:

    I was a college scrub on a D1 hoop team. What they euphemistically called a practice player. We practiced in the field house on the courts next to where the womens team practiced. Our coach had the bright idea that since losing game fitness is a real problem for the guys who didn’t get playing time could be prevented by having us scrimmage with the girls. The womens coach and the AD told him no but he pushed it until the womens coach finally refused because a. it was stupid and embarassing and b.girls got hurt.

    I unintentionally knocked this girl into the next day coming down with a rebound but I had 6 inches and probably 75 pounds on her. But that’s what they want.

  • NTSOG says:

    Here’s another man wanting to be a woman and good luck to him, her or it. Can anyone imagine him in his new female presentation coming onto any playing field to compete against real women in sporting activities where height, over-all body weight, muscle mass and aerobic capacity are primary criteria for success and it be a fair contest? And we haven’t even considered the differences in psychological profiles and the level of innate aggression each real gender brings to competition. Yet under current rules about discrimination it would be his/her/its right to play against real women if he/she/it chooses and to hell with the rights of real women to play against equals in a safe competition. As Bandit [above] says ‘girls got hurt’ and that’s why when teaching physical education to co-ed classes I had to be careful to structure competitive activities in upper primary and secondary schools so girls could actually enjoy playing on an equal basis and not get hurt.

    The left’s message to young women everywhere: Men are better at everything than you. Including being a woman.

  • Strelnikov says:

    Simple solution: Two divisions, one for women and one “open” division for anyone of any “gender” who wishes to compete. Since there are no inherent differences, should be no problem.
