Now we all have to live in it.
High school girls in Alaska do not appreciate losing track and field events to a biological male, even if he identifies as a girl. This year was the first time in the state’s history that a male athlete competed in the girls’ state championships, and not everyone is celebrating the transgender milestone.
Haines High School senior Nattaphon “Ice” Wangyot competed at the state championships in late May, running the 100-meter and 200-meter dashes. Wangyot immigrated from Thailand in 2014, and competed in girls’ volleyball and basketball in the fall.
When Wangyot qualified for state earlier in May, one of the girls she beat was less than impressed. “I’m glad that this person is comfortable with who they are and they’re able to be happy in who they are, but I don’t think it’s competitively completely 100-percent fair,” said Saskia Harrison, a runner for Hutchison High School in Fairbanks. Harrison just missed the cut with a time of 14.11 seconds.
“I don’t know what’s politically correct to say, but in my opinion your gender is what you’re born with,” Peyton Young, a junior from Eagle River High School who won the 3,200-meter race, told the Alaska Dispatch News. “It’s the DNA. Genetically a guy has more muscle mass than a girl, and if he’s racing against a girl, he may have an advantage.”
So? If he says he feels like a girl, he’s a girl. Neither science nor objective reality enters into it; the Left is making another of their nasty, unappetizing little omelets, and you’re the eggs that had to get broken this time around. As women, you were once one of their sainted Victim Classes, but now they’re on to bigger, better, more bizarre things; that makes you yesterday’s news, so do quietly crawl under the bus and don’t make trouble for them, won’t you? If you have to run a footrace against Bruce Jenner for the Left to get what it wants, well, that’s just tough for you. Be a dear and get with the program, like a good girl. Or else.
Just another demonstration that sooner or later, they’ll get around to something you do care about. They always do.
