Selina Soule was one of the top five female high school sprinters in Connecticut, headed toward national laurels and perhaps a college scholarship in her future. But that all came crashing down when she and other females were forced to compete against biological boys, who call themselves transgender girls. Now, women aren’t just losing their races, they’re losing their chances to compete at all.
The two biological males in Connecticut went on to win 15 state championships in two years and, shockingly, their winning times would not have qualified them for the boys state meet. When Soule voiced concern about the fairness of the competition, the media and school officials called her a sore loser, telling her to “run harder.”
But facts are facts. The biological changes that males go through during puberty are significant, giving them a decided edge in speed and strength over females. “The reason we have girls sports in the first place,” says Soule, “is to give females with talent, hard work and dedication, and equal opportunity a chance to shine and be recognized.”
So, is this just another intrusion by the Left and their appetite for political correctness? As always, you be the judge. Here’s more with Soule on PragerU.
