High School Girls Sue After Being Forced To Compete Against Transgender Athletes

Three Connecticut high school track runners filed a lawsuit against their athletic conference Wednesday to block born-male athletes from competing against them.

Selina Soule, Alanna Smith, and Chelsea Mitchell argue the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference (CIAC) is accommodating an unfair advantage for transgender athletes by allowing biological males to compete against girls. Connecticut is one of 17 states that currently allows transgender athletes to compete without restriction according to their gender identity, reports the Connecticut Post.

“It is not fair for any boy to compete against girls,” Smith told the Connecticut Post. “That biological unfairness doesn’t go away because of what someone believes about gender identity. All girls deserve a chance to compete on a level playing field.”

The girls first got involved in February 2019 when athletes Terry Miller and Andraya Yearwood, both born male, took first and second at the state open indoor track championships.

Soule says the athletes prevented her from making it further into the tournament.

“When I was in the indoor season I was in the 8th place of the state open and only the top six qualify for the New England regional meet– because there were two transgender athletes that put me into 8th place, if they weren’t there I would have been in 6th and I would have made it into the finals and I would have qualified for the New England meet — instead of watching my own event from the sidelines,” Soule told the Daily Caller at the time.

The Alliance Defending Freedom is representing the three girls in their lawsuit, with attorney Christiana Holcomb saying that the two transgender athletes have won 15 championships since 2017 that were previously held by nine separate girls. The lawsuit argues those 15 wins cost the girls 85 opportunities to compete between 2017 and 2019, according to the Connecticut Post.

I'm siding with the girls on this one. I hope they win, and bring some sanity back into the argument. There is no way transgender athletes should be allowed to compete against girls. Totally unfair to the girls. Completely demeans the girls; their sports; and their accomplishments.

I don't care what you think you are. Ask Serena Williams or Anika Sorenstam or Michelle Wie about competing against men, and those are noncontact sports.

Where are all these crazies coming from... It's a daily order of total stupidity..
My peabrain just don't think like they do.

It seems that everything that's wrong , Is now right, and what I always considered right is now wrong.

Just upside down.
It's been doing this for a while now..
Seems to be picking up steam...

Just crazy.

It's an "elective sport" and you can't be forced to be involved. Let the bass turds win by default - there is no victory for them.
