Finally, someone has the guts to do something. Since Obama's regime began favoring transgenders, girls have been robbed of scholarships and athletic accolades because boys have been allowed to compete in their sports. Imagine if you or your daughter worked her whole life to compete in a sport, hoping to get a college scholarship, only to lose out to a biological boy.
Outrageous, right? But no one is protesting, until now. Selina Soule, a 16-year-old track athlete in Connecticut lost her chance for a spot in the state regionals when the first two spots in the 55-meter event were taken by biological males.
“No one in the state of Connecticut is happy about this, but no one has enough courage to speak up,” Soule said, reports Western Journal.
“I haven’t been the only one affected by this,” Soule explained. “There have been countless other female athletes in the state of Connecticut, as well as my entire indoor track team. We missed out on winning the state open championship because of the team that the transgender athlete was on.”
So the brave high schooler is filing a civil rights complaint through the conservative Christian legal group Alliance Defending Freedom.
“Women fought long and hard to earn the equal athletic opportunities that Title IX provides," said Christina Holcolmb, legal counsel for the ADF. “Allowing boys to compete in girls’ sports reverses nearly 50 years of advances for women under this law. We shouldn’t force these young women to be spectators in their own sports.”
Unlike college athletics which requires transgenders to undergo hormone replacement therapy before competing in opposite gender sports, the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference allows students to compete on whatever gender's team they feel they identify with. Ironically and irritatingly, they call that "equity."
“The CIAC is committed to equity in providing opportunities to student athletes in Connecticut,” CIAC Executive Director Glenn Lungarini said in a written statement. “We take such matters seriously, and we believe that the current CIAC policy is appropriate under both Connecticut law and Title IX.”
Franklin Graham believes that is far from equity, and he stands firmly by Soule in a powerful Facebook post, asking people to encourage Selina.
"High school athlete Selina Soule was outrun by not one, but two biological boys who were allowed to compete because they chose to identify as females. This kept her from qualifying for an important track event where she would've been seen by college coaches," Graham wrote.
"She’s upset and I don’t blame her. It's obvious that in many places, school sports no longer has a level playing field for women and girls. They are being discriminated against and does anyone care? We’d better care," said Graham.
"The LGBTQ agenda is running out of control in this country and this is just one of the consequences," he warned. "One of the male athletes that ran against Selina now holds ten records that were formerly held by females. Wow. Girls should have a fair shake at athletics—that’s what Title IX is all about. Let’s encourage Selina and pray that the courts will settle this issue and stop the discrimination against female athletes," urged the passionate evangelist.
The transgender athletes named in the complaint — Terry Miller and Andraya Yearwood — are sprinters who have both “continue[d] to compete and excel in state track events,” explains Western Journal.
“We all know the outcome of the race before it even starts; it’s demoralizing,” Soule said earlier this year. “I fully support and am happy for these athletes for being true to themselves. They should have the right to express themselves in school, but athletics have always had extra rules to keep the competition fair.”
Bianca Stanescu, Soule’s mother, started a petition earlier this year “calling on the state legislature to require athletes to compete in sports based on their gender at birth, unless the athlete has undergone hormone therapy."
But it fell upon deaf ears. “We never got anywhere with the CIAC,” she shared. “The genders are segregated for a reason. They might as well just say women don’t exist as a category.”
What do you think of the issue of boys competing in girls' sports? Do you think, if this continues, it could demoralize girls from competing or rob them of getting well-deserved scholarships? Share your thoughts in the comments! Thank you for sharing what you think with us.
