The increasingly unjust, unfair, harmful pandering to pseudo-transgender opportunists has got to eventually trigger a massive awakening in which Americans say, “Wait…what are we doing? This is crazy! Why have we allowed this to go on this long? Or at all?”
In the most recent debacle, Seattle Academy’s Aspen Hoffman, ranked 72nd in boys’ track as a freshman, transitioned to female, sort of, as a sophomore, was allowed to compete as girl, and suddenly started winning races.
Hoffman finished first in the 5,000 meter race, and broke Seattle Academy’s girls’ record with a time that would have achieved 48th place in the boys’ division. This is Barry Bonds-level cheating. It also shows how California derangement is infectious: both Washington and Oregon have lost their grip on reality, rationality, responsibility and ethics. When are their citizens going to stop being weenies and stop the madness? It’s their duty as citizens, after all.
Fifteen years ago, Washington state’s guidelines for transgender athletes held that male athletes had to undergo surgery and two years of hormone therapy before they could compete as females. Four years ago, the surgery mandate was lifted and only“documented testosterone suppression therapy” was required. Then, in 2021 as The Great Stupid raged, the state ruled that transgender athletes only had to “consistently express” a gender. Well, yes, that seems reasonable as far as it goes. You don’t want athletes saying, “I’m male!” “I’m female!” “I’m male!” “I’m female!” between races like Faye Dunaway between slaps in “Chinatown.” But then there’s the other matter—biological males have a huge advantage.
It’s hardly a matter of debate. The father of a female competitor beaten by Hoffman said “He is larger than any of the girls, and shamelessly takes first place on the podium. Now my daughter is competing against a male for scholarships. Another parent asked “What about [Hoffman’s] teammate that was bumped off the varsity? These girls are losing their opportunity to not just get to state but maybe earn a scholarship.” Another school’s coach said, “[A]llowing [Hoffman] to compete against biological girls deprives other girls’ teams of the chance to compete at Stat, which is a big deal.” Yet another coach said “This is just about fairness in female sports. It would be just as insane if we made a girl who’s transitioning to be a boy compete against the girls.”
The Washington Interscholastic Activities Association’s 2021 Gender Diversity Toolkit claimed that trans athletes have “not been shown to diminish opportunities for others” and that there are “no competitive advantages.” That’s classic “It isn’t what it is” cant embodying the modern Left’s penchant for denying that inconvenient facts exist.
The first father quoted above added, referring to the WIAA’s policy eliminating the right of students and competing schools to challenge the participation of a trans student in female sports, added. “And we can’t even say anything. You can’t even approach it in a nice way without being labeled a hateful bigot. You will get threats against you.”
Oh, stop whining and fight for what you know is right, you weenie. Don Corleone had the perfect response for this kind of lament…
These things happen because people like you want to be nice when you need to be formidable, determined, and strong. Stop this. Stop it for your children, their children, your nation and its values.
If you won’t make the effort, I have no sympathy for you.
