Transgender track stars win state championship, ignites debate over rules

Didn't something similar happen before???

Quote:

HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) -- - Terry Miller and Andraya Yearwood swept the competition at the state championships for girls track and field.

Miller, a sophomore at Bulkeley High School took first place in the 100 and 200 meter dash. Andraya, a sophomore at Cromwell High School took second in the 100 meter dash. The wins are not sitting well with everyone. Miller and Yearwood are both transgender, and some say it's an unfair advantage and uneven playing field.

In a 2017 interview with News 8, Andraya Yearwood said even as a child, she identified as a girl.

"I had these pink and purple furry boots that I wore to school," Yearwood said. "I guess since I was always different I learned to deal with it and grow tougher skin over it."

Some parents and student-athletes have started petitions to change the policy that athletes in Connecticut high schools can play for gender specific sport they identify with. One petition is circulating in Plainville, the other in Glastonbury.

The CIAC, Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference, says their policy is directly in alignment with state law and for their policy to change, state law would also have to change. They say they empathize and are listening to all athletes, but this is a very complex legal issue with multiple layers. Those we talked to agree, it's a very complicated topic.

"You have some people who believe men are stronger and faster so I can understand if an athlete is born male but identifying as a female and compete as one, some females will feel a particular way about it," Clinton Baker said.

"If she identifies as a girl then I think she should be able to run in the race because she can use the ladies room, she can wear a skirt, why not run and stay active," Natasha Morgan said.

"The cream rises to the top," Baker added. "Athletes now will tell you if you put UConn women on the court with men, UConn men might lose. It's all in the spirit of competition, hard work and heart."

Yearwood says she's extremely grateful for the opportunity to be exactly who she says she has always been.

"I'm extremely grateful because I've heard of stories where some people don't get the same opportunities as me and have had to go through really hard times with this," Yearwood said.

There should be a separate competition for transgenders. They still have the same biology as a man. So it gives them an unfair advantage competing against women. I don't see it as any different than taking hormones to compete in sports better.

Interesting take. Not one I've ever really considered. Hmm.

And it was in 1975 with a professional tennis player.

And a few years ago with a MMA fighter.

And more.

And it's just getting started. Get ready to say goodbye to women's sports if people don't pull their head out of their ass. But since nobody gives a shit about women's sports, they probably won't even notice.

The losers are the girls who want to compete.

Yup.

That MMA wo 'man' sucked too. No skills. Just a man beating up women.

When he did lose, even the woman who beat his ass was like "This is ****ing bullshit"

And among the winners are the men who can't get an athletic scholarship as a man, but can get one as a woman.

They'll say "Well, her hormones were where they should be as a woman". The problem is that it doesn't erase how your body developed due to those hormones. You still have denser muscles and bones.

Plus, you have OTHER areas. Such as intersex people. It's actually quite possible for a woman to be born with internal testicles that increase their testosterone in spite of having fully functioning female sex organs.

It's a pretty muddy issue, and it revolves around a TINY minority that is so small it's hard to really build divisions around it.

When you cater to the freaks in a society, you get a warped society. Who ever could have known?
