Trans Sports Insanity

Trans Sports Insanity, by Bill Muehlenberg.

Just a few short years ago nobody – except for a handful of radical sexual anarchists and androgynists – would ever have imagined that a guy could decide he no longer wants to be a guy, and simply will himself to be a girl. And worse yet, that he would demand the “right” to play as a female in female sports.

Until a few years ago one would have thought that it was sheer madness for a person to deny biology, deny reality, and even deny one’s DNA, and just decide to change one’s sex because one feels like it. This is the sort of stuff mental institutions would have previously dealt with. …

The most recent Australian case of this is beyond bizarre. It involves a big hefty guy who now thinks he is a girl and is demanding to play in woman’s footy. Yes, you heard that right.

Thankfully this time the normally politically correct AFL actually made a good decision. They said ‘no’.

Sadly, the reaction from the loony left was as predictable as it was pathetic. Many are calling this an outrage and are demanding that the decision be overturned. Plenty of legal cases will very likely soon emerge as we now demand the “right” for men to pretend they are women.

One opinion piece actually had this headline “AFL’s shameful fear of Hannah.” The commentator wrote: “Inclusion it seems is not for everyone and frankly that is a disgrace. It is a confusing and sad situation because Mouncey has basic human rights. You have to feel for her. She doesn’t want to be the face for transgender people. All she wants to do is play footy.”

Oh good grief. This guy is wrong in everything he said. Should I as an overweight senior citizen who has never played a game of footy in my life demand my “inclusion” and force the AFL to have me play? And a basic “human right”? Really? To play football? Since when? What UN document says that? …

We have had female athletes who have actually been taken to hospital as a result of playing against men who pretend they are women. …

As Matt Walsh writes: “Women cannot compete in women’s leagues if men are competing in women’s leagues. So, there will be no more women’s leagues. There will be men’s leagues and then cross dressing men’s leagues. I’m really hoping you can explain to my daughter and to all of our daughters how empowering it will be to witness the end of female athletic competition.”

Scott Yenor:

Sports scream: “Some playing fields can’t be leveled. Some competitors are better than others!”

In this, sports speak the truth. There is no fine line between athletic accomplishments for women and men. Men are generally bigger, stronger, and faster. Where strength and speed and agility are the factors determining success, human beings watch men’s sports.
