Default Re: Transgender sprinter, a biological male, runs as girl in state meet—and absolutel

“The way the law is written, Terry Miller is eligible to compete,” Glastonbury coach Brian Collins told the CT Post. “I think a lot of people, myself included, have a problem with … a biological male competing. When they put the state law in effect, my interpretation is it wasn’t made for high school sports. I think it was meant for all people — whether transgender, bisexual, gay — are treated fairly. I totally agree with that, but with sports it’s not a level playing field. You’d probably ask the state reps if the law should be changed for sports.”
And here is a glaring example of the old rule of unintended consequences coming into play. Progressives in CT wrote a law that they thought would solve problems with transgenders being mistreated and stepped all over other people in the process.

NEWS FLASH: Boys and Girls are different. You can claim to be a boy or a girl or a bird or a tree or a Buick. But that does not make it so. A person born with both and X and Y chromosome are generally going to grow up with a stronger body than those born with both chromosome's being a Y. Those are scientific facts not opinions. There is a reason whey they separate boys and girls track.
