We all know the outcome of the race before it even starts; it’s demoralizing,” she said.
Athletics are an important part of academic life. Not just because they give an opportunity to be physical and competitive, but it opens doors for opportunities like scholarships.
That’s why it’s imperative that the students are given a fair shot. And the transgender trend has changed the math on that question. A lot. We can’t just celebrate and accept the ‘brave’ students that come out as another gender without stopping to consider who pays a price for it.
Selina Soule would have qualified to go to the nationals, had not two born-male competitors joined her race. But since she ran the race, she was sent home.
Connecticut high schooler Selina Soule appeared on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle” on Tuesday night to discuss transgender athletes in women’s sports. Soule recently competed in a high-stakes competition where two biologically male transgender sprinters beat the field, taking first and second place by significant margins. Soule finished in 8th place, missing an opportunity to compete in front of college coaches by two places.
“I am very happy for these athletes and I fully support them for being true to themselves and having the courage to do what they believe in,” Soule told host Laura Ingraham. “But, in athletics, it’s an entirely different situation. It’s scientifically proven that males are built to be physically stronger than females. It’s unfair to put someone who is biologically a male, who has not undergone anything in terms of hormone therapy, against cis-gender girls.”
… “My teammates and my fellow competitors — we are happy for these athletes, of course — but we do think it’s unfair, and for us it is upsetting when we work hard all season and put in a lot of effort, only to turn up at the state meets and get beat by someone who is biologically a male and lose state championships over this,” said the high schooler.
Soule said student-athletes applying for colleges are already running into “major issues” because there is no specified way in Connecticut to differentiate between transgender girls and biological girls. So when college coaches review stats, they are looking at major discrepancies in times without any explanation, she explained.
This is already impacting college applications for young women.
It’s not an unimportant or inconsequential issue.
Notice how it’s only “trans men” who are walking away with records, but they are doing so with predictable regularity?
Now women are paying a price.
The price they’re paying is not in just athletics.
Some high-profile people are pushing back
ClashDaily.com’s, Editor-In-Chief, Doug Giles how-to book:
In ‘Raising Righteous and Rowdy Girls’, Doug Giles reinforces the notion that little women don’t need to be pampered by their fathers to turn out right. And having met his beautiful daughters, I know his philosophy works. As a strong-willed woman who thinks her daddy is the greatest guy in the world, I can tell you this is a must-read for every man who hopes to earn the same title. —-S.E.
