Oh Sweetie! Boys Make Better Girls
Oh Sweetie! Boys Make Better Girls
InstapunditIn today’s world, girls are told to embrace their power. Lean-in, because what used to be “bossy” is now “assertive.” Today’s young women are guzzling the “you are enough!” Kool-Aid. But when it comes to girl’s athletics, sit down sweetie. Boys make better girls. Three Connecticut athletes are suing to reclaim their sport from the Trans-girls who dominate it.
Life was less complicated when XY and a penis meant boy, and XX with a vagina meant girl. Then society had to go and give credibility to gender identity, whereby one’s personal feelings dictate their gender. Oh, fine. You do you, until it impacts others.
And now we are at the point where an athlete’s decision to transition from male to female, is greatly impacting others. Specifically, female athletics are being dominated by Trans-women.
Trans-women are people with the advantage of producing testosterone during puberty. A time when their bodies develop muscle mass, bone density, heart capacity, and lung volume. Natural born women literally cannot compete with a developing male physiology.
The following is included in supporting documents for the Alliance for Defending Freedom lawsuit against Trans athletes competing in girls sports. The supporting documents are part of the “Expert Declaration” of Gregory A. Brown, Ph.D. He surmises,
In general, men and adolescent boys, can run faster, output more physical power, jump higher, and exercise greater physical endurance than women and adolescent girls.”
He continues that this enhanced performance is based upon,
This performance advantage is caused by distinctive, specific, and identifiable aspects of male physiology which develop during puberty under the influence of male levels of testosterone.”
In their study “COMPARING ATHLETIC PERFORMANCES THE BEST ELITE WOMEN TO BOYS AND MEN”, Duke Law professor Dorian Coleman along with Faculty and Scholarly Services Librarian Wickliffe Shrive find that,
Just in the single year 2017, Olympic, World, and U.S. Champion Tori Bowie’s 100 meters lifetime best of 10.78 was beaten 15,000 times by men and boys. (Yes, that’s the right number of zeros.)”
Additionally, this wasn’t an anomaly. They found,
The same is true of Olympic, World, and U.S. Champion Allyson Felix’s 400 meters lifetime best of 49.26. Just in the single year 2017, men and boys around the world outperformed her more than 15,000 times.”
Female Olympic, World, and U.S. Champions lifetime best times were beaten 15,000 times by men and boys. But high school girls are supposed to take a back seat to PC culture, where boys can self identify and compete as girls. Natural born girls are told to be quiet, not speak up, and accept what society deems okay. So much for the platitudes of “Girl Power”, and “You are enough!”, “Stand up and be counted.” Obviously there are still areas of society where girls are expected to sit down, shut up, and suck it up. And it’s adults telling them to do it.
Girls deserve to compete on a level playing field. Forcing them to compete against boys isn’t fair, shatters their dreams, and destroys their athletic opportunities,” She continues, “Having separate boys’ and girls’ sports has always been based on biological differences, not what people believe about their gender, because those differences matter for fair competition. And forcing girls to be spectators in their own sports is completely at odds with Title IX, a federal law designed to create equal opportunities for women in education and athletics. Connecticut’s policy violates that law and reverses nearly 50 years of advances for women.”
Three young girls are risking public censure, being branded bigots, labeled “Transphobic” by their peers, coaches, and the militant wing of the LGBTQ community…. Just so they can have a fair shot at winning. They aren’t asking for special treatment, but the chance to run against their physical peers. These girls are brave in the face of a lifetime of vitriol targeted at their backs.
Ask tennis champion, Martina Navratilova why she was removed from her advisory position with Athlete Ally, a nonprofit that advocates for LGBTQ inclusion and equality in sports. One of the greatest female athletes, openly gay during a time when it was a career killer, was removed because she wrote an op-ed that in part said,
To put the argument at its most basic: a man can decide to be female, take hormones if required by whatever sporting organization is concerned, win everything in sight and perhaps earn a small fortune, and then reverse his decision and go back to making babies if he so desires,” she continued. “It’s insane and it’s cheating. I am happy to address a transgender woman in whatever form she prefers, but I would not be happy to compete against her. It would not be fair.”
Imagine the strength of conviction these three young women must possess to endure the public onslaught headed their way? I hope they find support during these tumultuous times.
According to a January 10th article by “Outsports“, a group supporting LGBTQ issues in athletics,
Alabama joins New Hampshire, Washington, Georgia, Tennessee and Missouri to become the sixth state actively seeking restrictions on transgender student athletes.”
Those aforementioned “restrictions” are generally making the student athlete participate on the team that matches their assigned birth gender. The testosterone producing person will be expected to compete against other testosterone producing people. It’s a “restriction” based in reality. But we no longer operate in reality or facts. Our society runs on “feelings” and emotional responses producing reckless legislation. C’mon, take a deep breath ladies and gentlemen. Let’s pass something with teeth and based in logic. Our girls deserve more than lip service, and reactive politics.
We live in a time that the Sports Illustrated cover will feature a naked photo of the athlete formerly known as Bruce Jenner. His newly augmented, lifted, sculpted, and entirely unrealistic body will grace the cover. Standby for a naked Caitlyn Jenner. SI is already “woke”, but by putting a 70 year old on the cover, many of their readers will choke. Yet, it’s one more way that athletics is telling women to sit back, the boys have it under control. If they really want positive role models, I can think of three young women who are standing strong to fight the good fight for all natural born female athletes.
As a mother of two girls, I want to thank these young ladies. I’m raising strong girls, and they deserve to know that their hard work will see them competing against peers who don’t have a biologically produced advantage. Let girls have a level playing field.
