College athletics are quite competitive.
Students athletes strive to perform to maintain scholarships and perhaps even play professionally in their sport.
But people are concerned after this one athlete won an award.
Leftism will always go too far because there’s nobody on the Left who is is willing to stop it.
And what few dissidents there are on the Left who speak out find themselves ostracized.
This is precisely what has happened to feminists who aren’t on board with the transgender movement.
They’ve been subjected to a complete media blackout on the Left, and they’ve had to report to Fox News and conservative groups like the Heritage Foundation to get their message across.
One of the concerns from feminists and other Democrats who are more moderate is the effect of transgenderism on athletics.
Women’s athletics is being raided by biological males who are quickly winning events and shattering records.
And now one transgender college athlete just won an award that left many people concerned.
The Daily Caller reports:
The Big Sky Conference named University of Montana runner June Eastwood, a biological male who identifies as a transgender woman, the cross-country female athlete of the week.
“June Eastwood finished second in a field of 204 runners at the Santa Clara Bronco Invitational,” helping “Montana place seventh as a team,” the conference noted in its announcement Tuesday. Eastwood previously competed on the University of Montana’s men’s team.
The University of Montana’s athletic director previously cited NCAA policy in explaining why Eastwood was competing on the women’s team. The NCAA allows male runners who identify as transgender women to compete in women’s athletics after suppressing testosterone levels for a full calendar year.
Scientific research indicates male athletes retain competitive advantages over female athletes, even after suppressing testosterone.
Leftists always roll their eyes whenever conservatives make the “slippery slope” argument, but these same Leftists eventually end up defending the positions they said were too ridiculous to occur.
Transgender athletes are taking away spots and accolades from women.
It’s only a matter of time before a highly-visible sport like basketball is taken over by a transgender athlete.
If biological males start dunking all over women’s basketball at the high school and collegiate levels, one can only imagine the excuses the radical Left will use to justify their inane ideology.
Do you think it’s wrong for biological males to win awards in women’s sports?
