It seems as if there’s hardly a day that goes by now that we don’t hear of another instance of a “transgender” male winning a competition over a field of highly talented biological females.
We’ve discussed the issue so many different ways that to do so again feels almost futile, but like other important messages, we have to keep bringing it up with the hope that what we say will help our nation begin to return to sanity instead of the craziness that is embodied in the whole concept of being able to pick one’s sex by simply choosing to “identify” as the opposite.
Biological studies have clearly demonstrated that regardless of what you wrap the body with to change the appearance, everything from the skin inward is VERY different when comparing a male’s biology to that of a female.
Even with hormone suppression, it has been proven time and time again that in contests of strength and speed, a male physique lends itself to higher performance.
Yet we have a sort of subculture that insists that it is okay for male athletes to “identify” as females, and once so identified, they go on to compete successfully against females who are ultimately denied the winner’s circle by a man who won unfairly.
It just happened again at the University of Montana.
From the Daily Caller:
The Big Sky Conference named University of Montana runner June Eastwood, a biological male who identifies as a transgender woman, the cross-country female athlete of the week.
“June Eastwood finished second in a field of 204 runners at the Santa Clara Bronco Invitational,” helping “Montana place seventh as a team,” the conference noted in its announcement Tuesday. Eastwood previously competed on the University of Montana’s men’s team.
The University of Montana’s athletic director previously cited NCAA policy in explaining why Eastwood was competing on the women’s team. The NCAA allows male runners who identify as transgender women to compete in women’s athletics after suppressing testosterone levels for a full calendar year.
Scientific research indicates male athletes retain competitive advantages over female athletes, even after suppressing testosterone.
