More and more people who think they are “transgender” are entering the sports arena in hopes of winning, but this surely is unfair. A recent cyclist who goes by “Rachel McKinnon,” a man who identifies as queer, lesbian, pan, polyam, asexual and trans, won first place at the Masters Track Cycling World Championships for the second time in a row on Sunday and set a world record in the process.
Jennifer Wagner-Assali, a cyclist who lost a race against McKinnon last year, spoke out and racing against the biological male (as though there were any other kind) and said that it is “definitely NOT fair.” Wagner-Assali added, “It was an unfair race, and I accepted that when I pinned on the number, and I tried to do my best to overcome the unfairness.”
In fear for the future of women’s sports, Wagner-Assali also noted, “I do feel that hard-fought freedoms for women’s sport are being eroded. If we continue to let this happen, there will be men’s sports and co-ed sports, but there won’t be any women’s sports.”
This growing trend of men entering the world of women’s sports is surely a disgrace, it is unnatural, and it is downright sickening. Anyone that challenges this ever-increasing practice will, no doubt, be chided as a “transphobe.” This was McKinnon’s strategy in a blanket statement designed to silence and ignore all those with legitimate concerns: Ban and label.
But as Wagner-Assali asserted concerning the present cycling guidelines, “Just because it’s a CURRENT UCI rule doesn’t make it fair or right. And rules can be changed.” She is right; it isn’t right!
