A Connecticut boy who says he’s really a girl has been accepted onto the girl’s track team. Naturally, he is the fastest kid on the team. Coaches and athletes don’t seem to mind, even going so far as to call him “brave”. This is a 15-year-old boy who doesn’t take hormone therapy (and shouldn’t be allowed to anyway because that’s child abuse) and hasn’t had surgery to mutilate his body. He doesn’t even look like a girl. He looks like a boy. Because he is a boy. A guy male boy dude.
And so begins the post-science era and the end of feminism.
Just yesterday I wrote about Rachel Dolezal and how her claims of being “trans-racial” are no more ridiculous than being “transgender” and yet she was not graced with awards and magazine covers like Caitlyn Jenner after his “reveal”. But if we do accept her claims the same way we accept Jenner’s, what does that mean for black America, #BlackLivesMatter and the exhaustive struggle for racial equality? If anyone can be black then no one is really black.
If any man can claim he’s a woman, then what exactly is a woman? If gender is all in the mind then of what significance are my breasts, my womb, my genital functions? These are all the things feminists have been screeching about for years, saying America needs to pay more attention to these.
Support breast health, cover breast exams and breast cancer treatments, buy us the pill, don’t period shame me, BURN THE BRA! STAY OUT OF MY VAGINA!
It has been an unending litany of biological-related demands. This is the very heart of feminism. Suddenly along come men to say, “Hold on now, just because you were born with breasts and wombs doesn’t mean you’re the only ones allowed to call yourselves women. I’ve lived with male privilege all my life and biology naturally makes me bigger, faster and stronger but you don’t get to decide womanhood anymore. We’ll take a cut of that too, thankyouverymuch.”
WHERE THE HELL ARE THE FEMINISTS???
This boy should not be on a girl’s team. How many women in our history fought like hell to give girls the chance to compete amongst themselves in their own leagues where they could be competitive and not discriminated against by male officials or coaches?
If boys can join girls sports with simply a word what will stop every school from loading their women’s teams with boys who will naturally crush their female competition? How long before women are pushed out of sports altogether in the name of winning and setting records? How many young boys looking for scholarship opportunities will throw themselves into women’s sports knowing their chances of excelling are greater?
WHERE ARE THE FEMINISTS???
This is outrageous and terrifying. This boy doesn’t even need to be taking any medication or any surgical steps. He literally only needed to say he felt like a girl and suddenly he is a hero competing against girls.
Jesus, take the wheel.
I can’t imagine the rage that would overtake me if I learned my daughter were denied a valuable opportunity meant for girls because some boy made up his mind to be a girl one day and nothing more.
WHERE THE HELL ARE THE FEMINISTS???
Is this what our foremothers fought for? Is this what they saw as “equality”? How can feminists complain that a man has no right to tell a woman what to do with her body and then ignore the obvious conundrum of transgender politics?
Now men are telling women that men are women too. How is this any less offensive to them than men telling women they can’t have abortions?
If we are really going to celebrate an honest-to-God, straight-up, BOY on a girl’s track team then this truly is the end of feminism. There is nothing more to be said about it and they can all sink into the long annals of irrelevant history.
If you call yourself a feminist don’t ever expect me to take you seriously ever again. You’ve failed our gender and you’ve failed my daughter immeasurably. Feminism took a gamble on left-wing ideology and as usual, women were the only real losers.
