Once again, in this crazy world we live in a man has participated in a sports event and completely dominated leaving the females in the dust.
The man identifies as a woman- yeah, that’s what we have nowadays.
To the story:
The Big Sky Conference honored a transgender woman as its “Female Athlete of the Week” in cross country.
University of Montana runner June Eastwood, a biological male who identifies as a transgender woman finished second in a field of 204 runners at the Santa Clara Bronco Invitational at Baylands Park in Sunnyvale, Calif. Eastwood clocked a time of 20:18 in the 6k race to help Montana place seventh as a team.
June Eastwood, formerly known as Jonathan beat out eight other nominated competitors for Female Athlete of the Week, all of whom appear to be biological women judging by their official college headshots. The conference does not note Eastwood is transgender, The College Fix reported.
The University of Montana’s athletic director previously cited NCAA policy in explaining why Eastwood was competing on the women’s team, The Daily Caller News Foundation reports. 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.
Eastwood, whose accomplishment was first flagged by The College Fix, isn’t alone in winning accolades in female athletics as a male athlete.
Biological male runner CeCe Telfer, who identifies as a transgender woman, won an NCAA DII national championship for Franklin Pierce University in May. Like Eastwood, Telfer competed on the university’s men’s team before later switching to the women’s team.
Biologically male cyclist Rachel McKinnon won a women’s world championship Oct. 19. McKinnon won the sprint event in the women’s 35-39 age category at the 2019 Masters Track Cycling World Championships, taking home the gold medal for the second straight year.
The House of Representatives voted in May to pass the Equality Act, which would require schools to allow male athletes who identify as transgender girls to compete on female sports teams. The bill had unanimous support among House Democrats and is supported by every Democratic presidential frontrunner.
What do you think about men who identify as women participating in women’s sports.
Personally, considering the circumstances, I believe there should be a separate division for transgenders to compete against eachother.
But that’s just my opinion man.
