I’ve said it before and I’ll keep saying it.  Women’s sports are officially dead:

Andraya Yearwood hears the comments, usually from adults and usually not to her face.

She shouldn’t be running, they say, not against girls.

Yearwood, a 17-year-old junior at Cromwell High School, is one of two transgender high school sprinters in Connecticut, transitioning to female.

She recently finished second in the 55-meter dash at the state open indoor track championships. The winner, Terry Miller of Bloomfield High, is also transgender and set a girls state indoor record of 6.95 seconds. Yearwood finished in 7.01 seconds and the third-place competitor, who is not transgender, finished in 7.23 seconds.

Miller and Yearwood also topped the 100-meter state championships last year, and Miller won the 300 this season.

Critics say their gender identity amounts to an unfair advantage, expressing a familiar argument in a complex debate.

Okay, all you transgendered activists.  Should we hold our breath until the first biological woman who identifies as a male beats other (real) males?  Nope.  Because there is a difference inherently between men and women.  That’s why there is such a thing as women’s sports, so that the female athletes won’t be dominated by men. But apparently, identity politics trumps everything else now in this world, including common sense.

It’s very sad. So much work to give women equal space, equal credit and equal pay…. And now transgendered activists have basically made women obsolete in athletic competitions.

Good job, guys.  And I do mean “guys.”
