A transgender athlete who identifies as a woman won an NCAA national championship on Saturday.
Franklin Pierce University senior Cece Telfer beat the eight-woman field in the Division II women’s 400-meter hurdles by more than a second, with a personal collegiate-best time of 57.53.
According the NCAA’s Transgender Handbook, “According to medical experts on this issue, the assumption that a transgender woman competing on a women’s team would have a competitive advantage outside the range of performance and competitive advantage or disadvantage that already exists among female athletes is not supported by evidence.”
The late Florence Griffith-Joyner, dubbed “the fastest woman on earth” still holds the record for the womans’ 200 meter: 21.34, a record that Forbes predicted “may never be beat”. The high school boys record for that same distance is 20.13. Hundreds of high school boys have easily beaten Flo-Jo’s records in track events, yet according to the NCAA, boys hold no competitive advantage over girls.
As I understand the Left’s position, it is criminal to deny the science behind global warming theories, and criminal to admit to the science of human biology. For small-brained people like me, that’s confusing.
