Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
This article illustrates the problem with kids today. They’ve been pushed a steady diet of political correctness their whole lives, so they have to say they support the winners being true to themselves and they aren’t the least bit bigoted against transgenders, no sir, no way.
But then they complain about girls having to run against boys, saying “We all know the outcome of the race before it even starts; it’s demoralizing.” Of course it is. That’s why there are separate Girls and Boys events. At the competitive edge, boys are stronger and faster.
The girls know it’s unfair, they know they’re being cheated, but they lack the ability to call bulls**t on it. They can’t stand up for what’s right without being attacked as haters. They’re not only cheated, but silenced. Now THAT is true male-dominated oppression.
The real problem is the failure of sports directors to distinguish sex (male – XY chromosomes – testosterone) from gender (masculine – short hair – aggressive). I don’t care if a boy wants to run the 100 yard dash in a tutu and has glitter on his fingernails. He belongs in his biological classification, competing against other similarly equipped athletes.
Otherwise, if we’re truly embracing the concept that mental state over-rides biology, then do away with Boys and Girls sports. Everyone competes against each other and girls will never win another competition as long as they live.
Then, we finally can get rid of Title IX.
To be replaced by a program to bring equity back to the system, via some formula devised by the same people who gave us the situation we’re in now.
