We have a high school sports story out of Connecticut from last week which is likely going to be of more interest than you might think. (Assuming you’re not one of the parents who brought their child to the event, anyway.) On Monday, the Connecticut State Open track and field championships were held for high school students. Of particular interest were the girls 100 and 200 meter dash. Let’s watch one of those record-setting events via a tweet from Game Time Connecticut. (It’s a very short video.)

One student not only took first place in both events but set new state records in each. The second place finisher was also head and shoulders above the rest of the field. The problem is that both of those competitors were boys, though they “identify” as girls. (Daily Wire)
On Monday, when Connecticut had its State Open track and field championships at Willow Brook Park, one person broke the State Open records for girls in both the 100 and 200-meter runs.

That person was a biological boy.

Terry Miller of Bulkeley, a transgender, won the events. In the 100 meter dash, the runner-up was Andraya Yearwood of Cromwell, also a transgender.

Here are the two races:

Yearwood won the Class M sprint titles last year; Miller competed on the boys’ team during the winter indoor season then joined the girls’ competition.

Feel free to fly into a fit because someone chooses to state the obvious facts out loud, but Terry Miller and Andraya Yearwood are not girls. They’re boys, with the physique of boys and impressive athletic prowess. This wasn’t some local meet for bragging rights between local schools. This was a state-level event which would determine who went on to the New England championships. It’s also a pathway for many girls to secure a college scholarship.

The Daily Wire goes on to ask the pertinent follow-up question. What about the actual girls who came in third and fourth in the race but would have otherwise won had the event been properly restricted by gender? And since only the top six competitors are able to advance to the New England regional event, how about the girls who came in 7th and 8th who will not have a chance to go?

CIAC executive director Karissa Niehoff had this to say. “We do feel for them. Fully agree it doesn’t feel good. 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 does that even mean? The fact that it’s “high school sports” doesn’t mean that it’s any less important. As I noted above, this could have a serious impact on their future as not only athletes but students with a chance to get into a good school. And since when is it a “civil rights” question for girls who sign up to compete in a girls’ event to be shut out by some boys who show up and beat them? For the record, Miller (the winner) was competing on the boy’s team just this past winter.

Here’s one Twitter response which reminds us that if this is the future of feminism, you need to shut out the lights on that movement.
Transgender "women" win. The future of "feminism", folks. 😠 https://t.co/T9lJ0JDe62

Here’s a free hint for you. The current world record for the men’s 200 meter dash is still held by Usain Bolt who did it in 19.19 seconds. The women’s record, set back in 1988 by Florence Griffith-Joyner, is 21.34 seconds. That’s more than a full two seconds slower, which may not sound like much, but over such a short race it’s a chasm. The fastest men in the world are simply faster than the fastest women. It’s not discrimination or misogyny. It’s biology. And at the high school level, the fastest boys are going to be faster than the fastest girls. This race was a travesty and a disservice to the girls who trained their hearts out to compete.

The problem is that both of those competitors were boys, though they “identify” as girls.

If my daughter were racing in that event, I'd be pissed. If he thinks he's a girl, I'll gladly turn him into one with my pocket knife. I would imagine that she'd have to be disappointed, having trained all year, to lose to this creature. And how can HE take any satisfaction in running faster than a bunch of girls?

What a joke. How can rational adults allow this to happen? Are there any girls who "identify" as boys and compete against them? I haven't heard of any. Why is that?

On the other hand …

Crap like this continues and it will demonstrate the folly of these decisions. We have separate events for girls for a reason.

You are such a bigot.

To the contrary, I've begun to think that we should fully support these trannies taking over women's sports.

Let's put the Left between a rock and a hard place.

In fact, I'd like to see "women" with muscular builds weighing 220lbs and sporting full beards and hairy chests competing with these so-called "biological" females and beating their panties off and then showering with them afterwards.

C'mon, you need to be a feminist. Think of the fun.

Hence my "on the other hand".

I agree. I think it's going to need to get worse before it gets better. But oh, the irony.

Liberal women fought for decades to get their Title IX sports programs, oftentimes at the expense of boys sports programs. The women didn't care. There was no compromise. They bulldozed their way in and said if we can't have a program then you can't have a program.

Then along comes the transgenders. I hope the women don't expect our help.

You can see how fun it would be if the Right came out fully demanding that "gender" crush this ridiculous genetic thing called "sex".

It doesn't affect me in the slightest. I just have an opinion, that's all.
