Two transgender athletes crushed a slate of biological girls at a Connecticut girl’s track championship last week.
Terry Miller of Bulkeley, Connecticut, a transgender student, set a “record” for the girl’s competition in the 100 and 200-meter runs, according to the Daily Wire. Also raising eyebrows over the big win, only months ago during the winter indoor season, Miller was competing on the boys’ team, according to reports.
Too bad for girls in sport — got to break a few eggs to make an omelette:
An official for the New England championships defended the move to allow stronger, faster, bigger boys to compete as girls. While noting that she feels bad for all the girls knocked out of the finals to allow the two transgenders to compete, CIAC executive director Karissa Niehoff said, “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.” …
Bianca Stanescu, the mother of contestant Selina Soule of Glastonbury High, slammed the policy saying… “Sports are set up for fairness. Biologically male and female are different. … The great majority is being sacrificed for the minority.”
