Hey feminists, one of these runners is a dude
Linda Harvey of Mission America says biologically female athletes are being shoved aside by transgender athletes who have a natural physical advantage.
A male sprinter in Connecticut, for example, made headlines in June when he defeated female athletes in two state-level championships.
It was noted by The Daily Caller that the same scores by Andraya Yearwood (picture above, in middle) would have put him last in the boys’ competition.
The story went on to point out that Yearwood had yet to undergo surgery or even take hormone blockers but the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference allows students to compete on a sports team that aligns with their gender identity.
“We have a girl on the team who runs pretty quickly,” said the track coach, even though the “girl” is really a male who says he’s a girl.
Yearwood’s win in the state championship merited a newspaper commentary that asked the obvious question – “Is it fair?” – after Yearwood, without undergoing surgery or taking hormone treatment, “sprinted faster than anyone else” to win two state titles.
“It’s frustrating,” said last year’s 100-meter winner, Kate Hall. “But that’s just the way it is now.”

It certainly appears that self-described feminists aren’t fighting this left-wing juggernaut of transgenderism, says Harvey.
“You would think that feminists would be outraged, but no,” she says. “The LGBTQ agenda will eventually trump feminism.”
It may be too early to see how transgenders are affecting college sports but the NCAA is ready to back them. It follows an “Inclusion of Transgender Student-Athletes” handbook that states school policies must follow laws that protect transgender student athletes from discrimination.
Under NCAA rules athletes have 10 semesters of eligibility but with a policy announced in March those undergoing male-to-female conversions will have 12 semesters of eligibility.
A glowing NBC News story about track and field star L’eQuan Chapman describes how the homosexual All-American is breaking boundaries for the “LGBTQ” community. Yet the Olympic hopeful is not a male who identifies as female and competes against them.
According to Harvey, it’s past time for people to speak up on the issue – even if the supposed feminists remain silent.
