I was perusing my Facebook feed last night, and came across an article from The Daily Caller about a transgender high school student in Alaska competing in track and field. The student, who was born male, but now identifies as female, made the finals in the 100-meter and 200-meter events.
When I began reading the article, I thought it was satire. Trans issues are the current cause celebre among leftists, so I assumed it was a lampooning of liberal huffing and puffing. I thought, ‘There’s no way a biological male is being allowed to compete with biological females.’
There’s a reason men and women compete separately in nearly every sport. Men are physically stronger than women. I’m aware of exceptions to the rule, but 98% of the time, men have a obvious physical advantage on women.
