With a recent spate of born-male-but-competing-as-female athletes cleaning up in the awards (and scholarships) female HS athletes are taking a stand.
They want a fair playing field, and it’s pretty obvious to anyone looking at the results that young girls are now having to compete against functionally male bodies in athletic events.
If you cross that bridge, the logic would suggest you may as well do away with female sports altogether, and have everyone compete in one coed event.
That would, of course, spell the death of female athletic events because of the natural physiological advantages that a quick comparison of male and female athletic records would make patently obvious to all but the most ardent ‘gender is a social construct’ adherents.
This lawsuit arose in direct response to a couple of born-male athletes who could easily have been given their medals before anyone stepped onto the track.
Selina Soule, a senior at Glastonbury High School, Chelsea Mitchell, a senior at Canton High School and Alanna Smith, a sophomore at Danbury High School are represented by the conservative nonprofit organization Alliance Defending Freedom. They argue that allowing athletes with male anatomy to compete has deprived them of track titles and scholarship opportunities.
“Mentally and physically, we know the outcome before the race even starts,” said Smith, who is the daughter of former Major League pitcher Lee Smith. “That biological unfairness doesn’t go away because of what someone believes about gender identity. All girls deserve the chance to compete on a level playing field.”
The lawsuit was filed against the Connecticut Association of Schools-Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference and the boards of education in Bloomfield, Cromwell, Glastonbury, Canton and Danbury.
“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,” attorney Christiana Holcomb said. “Connecticut’s policy violates that law and reverses nearly 50 years of advances for women.”
…The lawsuit centers on two transgender sprinters, Terry Miller and Andraya Yearwood, who have frequently outperformed their cisgender competitors.
The two seniors have combined to win 15 girls state indoor or outdoor championship races since 2017, according to the lawsuit.
The three plaintiffs have competed directly against them, almost always losing to Miller and usually behind Yearwood. Mitchell finished third in the 2019 state championship in the girls 55-meter indoor track competition behind Miller and Yearwood.
“Our dream is not to come in second or third place, but to win fair and square,” Mitchell said. “All we’re asking for is a fair chance.” —ABC
