Transgender (male) athletes create controversy

Terry Miller and Andraya Yearwood dominated the competition at Connecticut’s girls track and field state championships earlier this week. Miller took 1st place in both the 100 and 200 meter dash, while Yearwood finished second in the 100. According to News 8 in Hartford, CT, both Miller and Yearwood are transgender which has some people saying that the pair had an unfair advantage.
“You have some people who believe men are stronger and faster so I can understand if an athlete is born male but identifying as a female and compete as one, some females will feel a particular way about it,” Clinton Baker said.
“The cream rises to the top,” Baker added. “Athletes now will tell you if you put UConn women on the court with men, UConn men might lose. It’s all in the spirit of competition, hard work and heart.”

I find the last statement totally ridiculous.
If the UConn men and women basketball teams played 100 times, the men would win 100 times.
Clinton Baker is an idiot.

But muh freedumz!

Imagine a world where there is no absolute truth, no such things as objective standards, or rational thinking. A world bent on digging it's way to hell with the fastest, most efficient machines available. Provided, free of charge, by Christians who believe that the Bible and politics shouldn't mix...
