"Transgender" Boy Wins Two Girls' State Track Championships In Connecticut

Andraya Yearwood is a boy. He just won two events (the 100- and 200-yard dashes) at the Connecticut high school class M state championships. Had he competed with other boys, he would have finished last.
   My guess is that this is the sort of thing that will motivate people to speak up against this nonsense. People might be bullied into mouthing the words "Andraya is a girl"...but when it comes to robbing people of sports titles they have trained for for much of their lives... Well, when things actually matter to people, suddenly their tolerance for such foolishness goes way, way down...

Yeah, it's madness when transgender is interpreted to mean 'on equal footing when it comes to sports.' And it's not like women's sports are so limited now: I'd rather watch women's basketball these days TBH, and I do go to the occasional Seattle Storm game. And women's soccer is huge, though I don't follow soccer at all. But it's nuts to let men play in the leagues; biology really does matter there. (Though I'm not so convinced it does for extreme endurance sports. The top men's and women's times for even 1500m swims are surprisingly close, and for Channel crossing it's down in the noise: 25 minutes over 7 hours; and for absolute number, Alison Streeter is way out in front.)

Here's one for you... suppose a 25 year old "identifies" as a 12 year old, and wants to play little league baseball, and becomes an all-star? Why not? Where do we draw the line on stuff like this? Suppose I "identify" as a genius, and my teachers are then pressured into giving me straight A's? Should I qualify for a handicapped parking permit if I'm able-bodied but "identify" as handicapped? The world has lost it's collective mind. You are what you are, accept it or not.

Yup.

Couldn't agree more.
