While the rest of the world is focused on a sham impeachment inquiry, I turned my attention to other things such as sports. I love sports and I have since I was young. My personality has a very strong competitive streak that sports has always satisfied. That was until now.
Today, I read this opinion article over at the Wall Street Journal. I will go ahead and admit it, but I have issues with males competing in women’s sports. I have long been an advocate for women’s rights. Now, I’m advocating for the rights of women athletes.
In the article, the WSJ allows multiple responses to a question by students. One writer questions the separation of male and female athletes in the first place in sports competition. Two writers argue that it is not a question about biology. One argues that it has to do with equal rights, while the other argues that equality does not exist in gender groups. Yet, this is completely about biology.
In one writers view, the dividing line between men and women’s testosterone levels is not very simple. Yet, there is a simple dividing line to be viewed here. Testosterone is the primary hormone in males while estrogen is the primary hormone in females. Every human across the world has differing levels of the hormones in their body. To allow someone with a naturally occurring higher level of testosterone to compete in female sports creates an unfair advantage. It is no different than someone utilizing artificial hormones, which is illegal in most regulated sports.
The argument for the pro-trans group is fairness and that these men, who desire to be women, are taking testosterone blocking medications. It does not change the fact that these individuals are men! I don’t care how much testosterone inhibiting drugs you take or what you cut off of a male, they are still a male at the end of the day.
Just because they claim to identify as something else does not mean they are something else. These men are no closer to being women than I am to being a car standing in my garage. No matter how hard I try, I can never be a car. I could replace my hands and feet with axles and wheels, but I’m still not a car. What is so difficult to understand in this situation?
This is not a question about freedoms. In the United States, you have the freedom to dress or act any way you wish. As a man, if you desire to dress like a woman and act like a woman, you have that ability. If you desire to castrate yourself, you have that ability. Yet, you are still a man and you do not have the rights to use the women’s restroom and compete in women’s sports. Those are reserved for those who are born as a woman.
One writer argues that the acceptance of men in women’s sports is a small price to pay for the pursuit of freedom and well-being. The only individuals that pay any sort of price in this situation are the females, who are naturally born females. They give their time and energy to training and compete, only to lose to a man who struggles with his identity. How does this seem fair?
The fact that we are even facing a dilemma in sports such as this is almost crazy. The differences in men and women is a special one. No matter how hard a man tries, he will never be a woman. No matter how hard a woman tries, she will never be a man. This difference is how God made us and intended us to be.
Women’s sports have come a long way over the last 25 years. When I was younger, I never saw women’s sports on TV. Now, I actually catch myself watching women’s sports. Some of the most intense competition I have seen in sports was in women’s sports, especially women’s softball! I still love sports and the competition it brings. The notion that men deserve to compete in women’s sports in preposterous. If we, the American public, are foolish enough to listen to the “woke” crowd and accept it, shame on us.
