Truth and reality seem to be a thing of the past in the 21st century as we, as a society, have told God we don’t want to abide by His word or live in His truth and light. The transgender rights movement has truly exposed the reprobate mentality of modern society. One of the most baffling aspects of this movement is the insistence by LGBT activists that transgender individuals be allowed to compete in sporting events against those living as their biological gender; specifically, “trans women,” that is, biological men, wanting to compete against biological women.
Despite widespread disapproval and resistance within the sporting world, LGBT activists continue on course to ensure biological men that live as “women” be allowed to physically compete against women.
Now, however, referees for women’s rugby in the UK are speaking up and taking a stand against this absurdity.
Referees for women’s rugby in Great Britain are quitting their jobs in response to the participation of gender-confused men in the sport, which they say is injuring players as well as free speech.
Several anonymous referees told the Sunday Times that they have been warned not to challenge athletes who show up for women’s teams sporting beards or masculine builds. England Rugby rules require “trans women” to submit to a blood test showing their testosterone levels have been below five nanomoles per litre for a year, but after a player is cleared by the Rugby Football Union, the refs say they are forbidden from second-guessing the decision.
“Being forced to prioritize hurt feelings over broken bones exposes me to personal litigation from female players who have been damaged by players who are biologically male,” one referee told the Times. “This is driving female players and referees out of the game.”
It’s good to see these referees taking a stand against this dangerous push to allow men who identify as women to participate in women’s sports. Men and women are built completely differently, this is basic biology 101. As a woman, the idea of competing in a physical sport, like rugby, against a man who could potentially tackle me is terrifying to this writer. Yet, it’s being allowed to happen! So much for feminism.
Men are physically superior to women no matter how they choose to identify.
The ongoing unrest over the issue appears to reinforce the argument that managing hormone levels is insufficient to account for the biological differences between male and female athletes. In July, researchers from New Zealand concluded that current Olympics guidelines pose an “intolerable unfairness” to actual women competing against gender-confused men, who retain male advantages such as superior “joint articulation, stroke volume and maximal oxygen uptake” despite hormone therapy.
“Healthy young men did not lose significant muscle mass (or power) when their circulating testosterone levels were reduced to (below International Olympic Committee guidelines) for 20 weeks,” the researchers found, and “indirect effects of testosterone will not be altered by hormone therapy.”
All of the evidence would indicate allowing trans women to compete in women’s sports is a bad idea, both dangerous and irresponsible. It isn’t something that trans athletes and their trainers and coaches are oblivious to either. In a report by the BBC on trans rugby player Nicholas “Kelly” Morgan, his coach Brian Minty was quoted as saying, “she’s going to be a good, good player for the next few years, as long as we can stop her injuring players in training.”
What kind of thing is that to joke about? It’s mind-blowing that we are even having this conversation. Aside from the obvious dangers of allowing this, it’s completely robbing women of the possible achievements and successes they could potentially have. It diminishes their efforts, talents, and abilities. The best woman on her best day stands very little chance of beating a male competitor in a physical challenge. That is just a fact. What are women to do?
It’s good to see these referees in Great Britain standing up for women’s rights. It’s clear the liberal left has abandoned their alleged protection of women for the greater cause of transgenderism. It’s wrong and should not be allowed or tolerated!
