With Impeach-A-Palooza taking a winter break while House Democrats continue to claim President Donald Trump is a national security threat and simultaneously holding the articles of impeachment at arm’s length from the Senate, I decided to take a break from impeachment talk and focus on another topic for a change.
You may not know it, but I am a sports fan. I try to follow trends as closely as I can as a means to avoid thinking about politics 24/7, but lately the two get tangled up in each other, whether it’s ESPN putting on its white knight armor to stump for Leftist causes or athletes like Colin “I’m Still Benched” Kapernick kneeling for the Star Spangled Banner. But none of these situations defy logic and science like transgendered athletes.
To figure out the Venn diagram intersection between Leftist ideology and sports, let’s take a deep dive into the phenomenon.
What the Left thinks it means – brave athletes who want to be accepted for their gender identity and their athletic achievements
What it really means – people who prey upon the Left’s good intentions to cheat the system
Annnnnd the calls of “Thomas is a transphobe” will start coming in shortly. Before they do, however, I must point out my opposition to transgendered athletes has nothing to do with them being transgendered. It has everything to do with creating a fair playing field for all.
When you look at the transgendered athletes making the news lately, you should notice two important details. First, these athletes are often breaking records formerly held by genetic women. And, second, the athletes breaking these records tend to be male-to-female transgender. There aren’t a lot of female-to-male transgender athletes getting attention, but when you have a Biff-to-Biffany shattering a record, it’s covered more than a Muslim woman in a burka working in a coal mine.
Why is that, exactly? Well, the short answer is it has everything to do with the Left’s position on gender and gender identity. If you identify as trans, any achievement the Left agrees with becomes a victory for all trans people, regardless of whether it actually is one. The Left has already made it possible to blur the lines of biological gender by inventing more genders than there are people who actually identify as said genders and by advancing the idea gender is fluid. Meaning, it’s whatever you want it to be. It’s the same thinking that gave us the “living Constitution” jazz, only it’s dealing with more than ideas and concepts.
And this is where it gets troublesome for the Left. They are big fans of the transgender movement, but they are also big fans of the feminist movement. Usually, there isn’t much of a quarrel between these two groups, but in this case, there should be. Remember what I said earlier about women’s records being shattered by male-to-female transgendered athletes? When you take a moment to think about it, what is happening is genetic males are using the Left’s permissiveness to undercut the achievements of biological females, and the Left doesn’t see that as a problem. And the Left wants to “smash the Patriarchy”? Well, if they are, they’re outsourcing it to biological men…
And women are starting to realize the downside to the Left’s push for gender identification equality: there are biological differences between men and women that make the transgender athlete issue harder to support. That flies in the face of the Left’s “party of science” designation, as well as their entire argument on gender identity. One of the Left’s favorite lines about gender is that it’s a social construct, not a biological one. Basically, their argument is the doctor assigns you a gender at birth based on perception (like whether the baby has a twig and two berries, if you know what I mean) and his or her parents base how they raise the child from the doctor’s perspective. Pink for girls and blue for boys. Although there might be an iota of a point there, it flies in the face of human physiology. Only in rare cases will you find a biological girl with male plumbing, a biological male without it, or a person with both sets. That means the whole “perception and society create gender” is bogus and should be treated as such.
Especially when it comes to biological men competing against biological women and beating them.
This isn’t to say women will always lose to men. There are times when a woman beats a man at his/her own game by simply being better. The issue, however, is men and women are different and biological gender is real. I could find some nice white robes, a miter hat, and a vehicle with a bulletproof glass dome, but that doesn’t make me the Pope. (Although, to be fair, I think I could a lot better than the current Pope, but that’s neither here nor there.) The point is there are certain characteristics that prevent me from being what I claim to be. And, yes, this applies to transgendered athletes. No matter how much you try to look like a woman or a man, you are still biologically who you are, and male-to-female trans athletes using the attributes they receive by being biological males is nothing short of cheating.
And that’s not transphobic at all. If anything, it’s more feminist than transphobic. Try wrapping your hivemind around that, Leftists.
Ultimately, women will come to terms with the Left’s decisions and arguments sooner or later. Preferably sooner because the Left sees women not as individuals with different identities and strengths, but as donors and voters that can be easily manipulated by saying the “right” things. In other words, ladies, the Left thinks you’re dumb. Kinda puts their whole “we support women” narrative into perspective, doesn’t it?
There’s a saying, “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.” When it comes transgendered athletes, there will be a lot of fury coming the Left’s way, whether it be from the women getting cheated by male-to-female trans athletes or from the female-to-male trans athletes getting ignored.
