In Connecticut and New England, the concern that progressive activists would allow “trans women” to take over and beat the real women in women’s sports is coming true.
“It’s February 2020. I’m crouched at the starting line of the high school girls’ 55-meter indoor race. This should be one of the best days of my life. I’m running in the state championship, and I’m ranked the fastest high school female in the 55-meter dash in the state. I should be feeling confident. I should know that I have a strong shot at winning.
Instead, all I can think about is how all my training, everything I’ve done to maximize my performance, might not be enough, simply because there’s a runner on the line with an enormous physical advantage: a male body.
I won that race, and I’m grateful. But time after time, I have lost. I’ve lost four women’s state championship titles, two all-New England awards, and numerous other spots on the podium to male runners. I was bumped to third place in the 55-meter dash in 2019, behind two male runners. With every loss, it gets harder and harder to try again. …
The CIAC allows biological males to compete in girls’ and women’s sports. As a result, two males began racing in girls’ track in 2017.

BTW, while we are on the subject: it is not women and mothers who get pregnant and give birth. There are all kinds of genders who can get pregnant and give birth now. Men can give birth.
“CHICAGO – One-and-a-half-year-old Zayn Brady-Davis jumped up and down on her father’s lap on a sunny park bench beside a model yacht pool on the South Side, where her father used to sit by the rocks and watch boat races as a kid.
“Jump! Jump!” Myles Brady-Davis whispered, lifting Zayn in the air before pulling her into a caress, punctuating it all with a kiss on the cheek.
Brady-Davis, who uses gender-neutral pronouns, is transmasculine and nonbinary. They were assigned female at birth but know themself to be masculine, and their gender identity falls outside the categories of man and woman. At the end of 2019, they gave birth to their first child, Zayn. …
Brady-Davis is just one of many transgender, nonbinary and other gender-nonconforming people worldwide who have given birth. The topic gained public attention this month when several U.S. lawmakers used the terms “pregnant people” and “birthing people” at a congressional hearing, spurring critique from colleagues and a swirl of backlash on social media. …
Based in Portland, Oregon, Reese and his partner, Biff, adopted two kids, Hailey and Lucas, in 2016. The next year, Reese gave birth to his son, Leo.
“Families like mine, like ours – transgender families, LGBT families – we want the same things that everyone else does,” Reese said. …”
“The fact of the matter is, not all pregnant people are women,” Brown said. “And so the moment that we use in legislation or in research ‘woman’ or ‘womanhood’ to describe pregnancy, we’re losing a people right off the bat.” …”
