Default Transgender sprinter, a biological male, runs as girl in state meet—and absolutely cr

Welcome to the future of sports.

Obviously I feel bad for the chicks. Dude should be ashamed himself.

In our lib pc culture this crap is only gonna get worse.

Transgender sprinter, a biological male, runs as girl in state meet—and absolutely crushes the field

Connecticut sprinter Terry Miller competed on the boys team during the winter indoor track season, the CT Post reported.

But in the CIAC State Open track and field championships last week, the transgender sophomore from Bulkeley High School in Hartford competed as a girl, the paper said — and absolutely crushed the competition.

Miller won the 100-meter dash in 11.72 seconds and took the 200-meter dash in 24.17 seconds — both meet record times, the CT Post reported.

Also of note is that Andraya Yearwood of Cromwell High School — another transgender sprinter who won the girls’ 100- and 200-meter dashes at the Connecticut state track meet last year — came in second behind Miller in this year’s girls’ 100, GameTimeCT reported.

What did a state athletic official have to say?

“A lot of people have asked, ‘Can you run a separate race, can you put an asterisk next to their name, do something that shows there is a standard that is different from that?'” CIAC executive director Karissa Niehoff noted to the CT Post. “When you get into that playing out, you have got civil rights issues.”

Niehoff added to the paper: “Then within the same gender, you are taking one population of the gender, and you’re separating them and creating another class. That’s what Title IX speaks to. That’s what Office of Civil Rights guidelines speak to. You cannot discriminate based on gender. And in our case in Connecticut, gender is gender identity.”

When asked about girls beaten by Miller and Yearwood who would’ve gotten a chance to advance in competition had the transgender pair not competed, Niehoff told the paper “we do feel for them.”

“Fully agree it doesn’t feel good,” she added to the CT Post. “The optic isn’t good. But we really do have to look at the bigger issues that speak to civil rights and the fact this is high school sports.”

What did the girl who finished third in the 100 have to say?

“To be honest, I think it’s great they get a chance to compete, and as long as they’re happy, I guess, there’s not that much I can do,” RHAM High School’s Bridget Lalonde, who finished third in the 100 behind Miller and Yearwood, told the CT Post. “The rules are the rules. The only competition is the clock. You can only run as fast as you can.”

The paper added that some said Lalonde was the real winner of both events, as she had a personal best time of 12.29 in the 100 and finished second to Miller in the 200.

What about the girl who finished sixth in the 100?

“I think it’s unfair to the girls who work really hard to do well and qualify for Opens and New Englands,” Glastonbury sophomore sprinter Selina Soule, who finished sixth in the 100, told the Hartford Courant. “These girls, they’re just coming in and beating everyone. I have no problem with them wanting to be a girl.”

Soule’s mother, Bianca Stanescu, told the CT Post there’s no transgender competition issue when it comes to things like “math and science and chorus” but that it’s not the same with athletics.

“Sports are set up for fairness. Biologically male and female are different,” she told the paper, adding that “the great majority is being sacrificed for the minority.”

What did a non-transgender winner have to say?
Carly Swierbut of Newton won the girls’ 400 in a time of 55.48 — beating Miller who came in fourth — and told the CT Post she has no problem competing against transgender athletes.

“If you’re good enough to run, you’re good enough to run. If somebody wants to win, they’re going to work their tail off to win,” Swierbut told the paper. “It doesn’t matter who you are, what you are, everybody should have the chance.”

What do coaches have to say?

James Hillhouse Academies coach Gary Moore told Hearst Connecticut Media prior to the state open championships that Miller should be allowed to compete but the situation “wasn’t fair to the girls,” the CT Post noted, adding that Moore insisted something should be done to “level the playing field.”

“I’ve been stopped by at least five coaches [at the state meet], all of them saying they really liked what I said in the paper. How come other coaches aren’t talking? This is a big issue a lot of coaches have, that we’ve got to do something, but how come you’re not saying anything?” Moore told the CT Post. “I’ve said what I needed to say. I’m getting a little annoyed with the coaches that we haven’t been able to get together and do what’s best for everybody.”

Simsbury coach Lorenzo Milledge said “the rule needs to be changed,” the paper added.

“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.

Say goodbye to women's sports and scholarships. Transgender males will rule the field depriving deserving women of the opportunity to attend college.

My what progress.

Boy's 100 meter meet record - 10.48
Boy's 200 meter meet record - 20.86

Why don't we see any transgender girl->boy running in boys events?

Can you imagine if Bruce Jenner had transitioned BEFORE the Olympics? He would have been the fast woman EVER!

This is tantamount to a person offering another person a shlt sandwich, and telling him that it is imported feces, and it should be oohed and aahed over. Mixed up people who can't decide if they are male or female should butt out of events geared for differences in sex.

Commence the snowfall!

Whenever a biological male pretending to be a woman competes against females in a sport, the women (or girls if they are young) should refuse to compete. That would put an end to this nonsense.

Unfortunately, those same females, have been raised with the idea that once someone as 'identified' as a female, they must be accepted as such. I unfortunately believe there would be few who would decline or contest it for fear of being ostracized.

I ran track in high school, 220 relay. There's no way females can honestly compete against males, regardless as to what they 'identify' as.

I agree men have an advantage in running. And let's push for more females to fly airplanes and to become bombers in them in the military.

Transgender ‘female’ MMA fighter gives female opponent concussion, broken eye socket
Fallon Fox, Transgender, Transgenderism

Transgender mixed martial arts (MMA) competitor Fallon Fox is facing new criticisms after breaking the eye socket of his last opponent.

On Saturday, Fox defeated Tamikka Brents by TKO at 2:17 of the first round of their match. In addition to the damaged orbital bone that required seven staples, Brents received a concussion. In a post-fight interview this week, she told Whoa TV that "I've never felt so overpowered ever in my life."

“I’ve fought a lot of women and have never felt the strength that I felt in a fight as I did that night. I can’t answer whether it’s because [he] was born a man or not, because I’m not a doctor,” she stated. “I can only say, I’ve never felt so overpowered ever in my life, and I am an abnormally strong female in my own right. ”

His “grip was different,” she added. “I could usually move around in the clinch against...females but couldn’t move at all in Fox’s clinch.”

Fox's gender controversy is not new. In March 2013, after a 39-second knockout victory, it was revealed that Fox had not told the MMA community about his sex-change operation, which took place in 2006. That bout was the fifth straight first-round victory for the then-37-year old Fox, including his three amateur bouts, and his second victory as a professional fighter.
