Yes, a women could very well become a construction worker but it doesn’t change the fact that it’s man who will dominate in that lane simply because the way a man’s body is created. You cannot change biology and it is proven hundreds of times over that the capacity of a man’s strength will always surpass the capacity of a women’s strength. This doesn’t mean that women are better than men or men are better than women, it simply means that we were created differently and we are different. I believe it’s important to understand that the body of a man is very different from the body of a women, especially when we’re talking about sports.
For as a long as women began to compete in sports like weight lifting, baseball, basketball, track, or even participate in the Olympics it was clear that women and men were to be separated. This has been the case for several years and because of that women have earned countless awards, medals, and have broken world records in their respected fields. Men have also done the same against other men in their respected fields. Unfortunately it seems like women won’t be succeeding or winning in sports any longer if nothing is done about the rising problem. Men who claim to be born in the wrong body and are now Identifying as a women are wrestling, running, swimming, and out-sporting women in all fields. Not only are they destroying women sport but they’re robbing medals, awards, and world records that women have acquired through sheer talent and hard work.
Example, Mary Gregory who only recently came out as transgender celebrated a huge win on an Instagram post after breaking multiple records previously held by women in just one day.
“What a day, 9 for 9! Masters world squat record, open world bench record, masters world dl record, and masters world total record! Still processing, full meet recap to come a bit later but I do want to thank a few people,” Gregory wrote on Instagram.
“As a transgender lifter I was unsure what to expect going into this meet and everyone — all the spotters, loaders, referees, staff, meet director, all made me welcome and treated me as just another female lifter.”
Gregory is having a good day but I wonder how those women who trained weekly, competed for years, and worked hard to break those records feel right now. Imagine waking up to find out that a Man who just recently became a Transgender women came and swooped up all their hard work in one single day, that really must suck. It’s okay though let’s continue to rob women of sports and their hard work because the world want’s to ignore biology and facts in the name of inclusion. Not everyone was feeling inclusive over Gregory’s wins, Former British Olympic swimmer Sharron Davies, who won a Silver Medal in the 1980 Summer Olympics was not happy at all. “Male body with male physiology” and that a “woman with female biology cannot compete. It’s a pointless, unfair playing field” said Sharron.
Gregory isn’t the only one and professional competition isn’t the only fields that this is taken place in if that’s what you were thinking. Young women in high school are also facing these issues as the problem has trickled itself down to College and High school Sports. At the State Championships for Girls two Transgender high school sophomores Terry Miller and Andraya Yearwood came in first and second place, in the 100-meter race winning the top prizes at the State Open Finals June 4th. Currently there are 17 states which allow transgender high school athletes to compete without restrictions, according to Transathlete. Fallon Fox one of the most known transgender female fighters in the world, former MMA fighter, broke the skull of her natural-born women opponent Taika Brents.
