Clearly, it’s time that women learned their place.

We’re told daily that it’s “our body, our choice–” as long as it involves killing unborn children, that is.  However, if a woman says that she doesn’t want to undress in front of a man in a locker room, or use the bathroom with someone who is “gender fluid,” or compete against a man in women’s athletics, we’re told that we’re ridiculous; we’re called bigots, homophobes, or transphobic. It doesn’t matter how many women object, if a single “trans-woman” demands her social justice, we are told to sit down and shut up.  We just need to know our place.

Let me give those of you who are scientifically-challenged a quick biology tutorial. 

If you have a penis, then you are a male.  

It doesn’t matter if you tuck it, or tape it, or if you wear satiny girl panties, a bra, heels, grow your hair long, wear make-up, or even get breast implants.  You are still a biological MALE. 

What this means for trans-athletes:

Men have broader shoulders and develop more muscle mass and women more fat. Men have larger feet and hands. This could be useful to an athlete depending on the sport. Testosterone allows for greater muscle mass. It does not only affect muscle, but bones, ligaments, and tendons.  Testosterone also produces more red blood cells. Males have a greater amount of fast twitch muscles fibers. These types of muscle fibers allow for greater bursts of physical output.  Men have greater bone mass, as well, which allows them to withstand more trauma. Women have smaller lungs and hearts, which affect how oxygen is utilized.

Despite what the social justice warriors of the left claim, men and women are NOT the same.  And when it comes to athletics, while some women will win, trans-women athletes will dominate most of the time; there’s that pesky science again.

For example, on May 30th, a biological male, Andraya Yearwood,  who identifies as a female, won the girls 100-meter and 200-meter dashes at the Connecticut high school Class M state championships.  He stated, “It feels really good. I’m really happy to win both titles… I kind of expected it. I’ve always gotten first, so I expected it to some extent. … I’m really proud of it.”

He’s proud that he beat all the girls? Really?  Take a look at his arms, his legs, his build and compare it to the girls.  He looks like what he is:  a boy running against girls.  He’s bigger, stronger, and shockingly, faster! (Did I tell you he has a mustache?)

His times would have placed him a full second behind the last place runner in the boy’s competition!  

Was it fair? According to Hartford Courant sports writer, Jeff Jacobs, “On a biologically competitive basis, it was not.”  He continued, “I do not pretend to have the answer. Humanity counts. So does biology. For me, somebody who has observed sports and written about all kinds of athletes for four decades, the integrity of the state competition for these two races Tuesday was compromised.

Humanity counts?  So, let me get this straight, it’s not fair to tell a biological male “no” who wants to compete against girls, and who clearly would have been beaten by other boys because of humanity?   What about the humanity of the girls who had to compete against him?  Where are the feminists voicing their outrage?   I must have missed their signs and protests.

When asked about the controversy, Andraya’s father stated:

“As her father, I never think about it as competition,” he told the Courant. “This is not about winning and losing races. This is about the health of my teenage daughter. In terms of the fairness aspect, I don’t think about that as a father. I only think about, is my daughter happy, healthy and able to participate in what she wants to do? I don’t care if she wins or loses. I don’t care if she wins and gives the medals back. She got to compete as a girl where she feels she should compete. That’s all that matters to me.”

Note to Dad:  See picture above– Your wife gave birth to a male, that means he’s your son.  I’m glad it’s all about how your son feels, but once again, what about the feelings of the biological females competing against him? What about their years of hard work and effort to achieve this level of excellence? 

Earlier in the season, Coach Brian Calhoun said, “It has been like every other athlete. We have a girl on the team who runs pretty quickly. And I think the girls are pretty happy to have a girl on the team that runs pretty quickly. … It is going to be a positive thing for the whole team.”

How is this a positive thing for the whole team? This young man has overwhelming advantages over every other girl on the team. It’s clearly unfair, and everyone knows it, but hey, it’s all about humanity and HIS entitlement. As long as HE’S happy and fulfilled. Who cares that the girls who competed against him might be upset and feel the race was unfair.

Not that anyone really seems to care, but what did the girls who competed against him have to say? According to the Hartford Courant:

And as Stonington junior Kate Hall, who had won the Class M 100 last year, brushed back tears after she had finished second behind transgender female Andraya Yearwood of Cromwell in the 100, this much was clear:

 

The question that could not be ignored has no easy, painless answer.

 

“It’s frustrating,” said Hall, who finished third in the 200. “But that’s just the way it is now.”

 

“I wouldn’t know what I would say, honestly,” Hall said.

She continued,I can’t really say what I want to say, but there’s not much I can do about it. You can’t blame anyone

Why not?  It seems to me there are plenty of people to blame for this fiasco.  Where are the girls’ parents?  Anyone who claims to champion women should put a stop to this insanity right now, or women’s sports will become extinct.  There have already been transgendered fighters, weight lifters, volleyball players, and the list grows longer every day.   I’m sure that it’s really empowering for these young ladies to watch their sports as they’re  taken over by men, while they’re told to shut up and like it or they’re intolerant and transphobic.

What will it take for people to have the courage to stand up and say, “The Emperor has no clothes!”  How much of this insanity are people willing to put their children, their daughters through?  Or will people allow our girls to continue to be shamed because they want their own bathrooms, locker rooms, and teams?

Through all of the hyperbole and hysteria coming from Leftists about the “war on women,” when there’s a clear case of discrimination and victimization, the silence is deafening. It’s shameful.
