ACLU Attempts To Debunk “Myths” About Trans-Athletes
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.
FACT ONE: Trans girls are girls. pic.twitter.com/R5OWNl5ooI— ACLU (@ACLU) February 3, 2021
“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.”
FACT THREE: Including trans athletes will benefit everyone. pic.twitter.com/H0Fpt8xb4X— ACLU (@ACLU) February 3, 2021
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.
Have you ever noticed it’s always MtF trans who want to compete in women’s sports, but never FtM trans. I’m sure there’s a logical explanation for that.— Sara (@McKinnonsMom) February 3, 2021
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.
