Vermont Principals’ Association (VPA) has the distinction of running school athletics in the New England state. On March 13th, they sent a letter to Mid Vermont Christian School, banning them from participating after what they called violations of their “commitment to racial, gender-fair, and disability awareness” as well as “gender identity.”
“The VPA again reiterates its ongoing support of transgender student-athletes as not only a part of building an inclusive community for each student to grow and thrive, but also as a clear expectation by Vermont state law(s) in the Agency of Education Best Practices, and in VPA Policy regarding transgender student-athletes. The prohibition against discrimination includes discrimination based on a student’s actual or perceived sex and gender,” read the letter.
This response from the VPA comes from Mid Vermont Christian School choosing to forfeit a game against Long Trail School, which has a biological male playing on their girl’s basketball team. In the opinion of the school, this game would present a significant risk to their girl’s safety, and they found it incredibly unfair.
Mid Vermont head Vicky Fogg spoke with Valley News about the incident in February, “We believe playing against an opponent with a biological male jeopardizes the fairness of the game and the safety of our players.” Upon hearing the news, she underscored these feelings to The New York Post “Cancelling our membership is not a solution and does nothing to deal with the very real issue of safety and fairness facing women’s sports in our beloved state.”
Fogg and many others have had enough of this. As much as trans activists love to argue against this point, there have been multiple cases of males “transitioning” during their junior or senior years to qualify for sports awards and scholarships. Suddenly after getting them and going to college many “re-think” their decisions and no longer wish to be the women they once felt like.
Putting natural women at risk of injury or embarrassment just so someone who failed as a man can “succeed” as a woman is insulting to these young ladies. Telling them that their accomplishments mean less because someone with a genetic advantage suddenly starts playing in the same league as them is just wrong. Yet, in order to not offend the liberals, we have let common sense go flying out the window.
As many medical professionals have shown, biological males are at a significant advantage over biological women in sports. Even if they grow their hair out, start wearing dresses, and begin hormone therapy at 16, by then, their longer and denser bones are primarily developed. Muscle mass (even if they don’t train like an athlete) is far heavier and denser. There is no denying they are more equipped to go the distance and win.
The time to put an end to this is now. This little experiment has been allowed to run in the US for long enough, and as we have proven it just isn’t going to work. As evidence has shown with tryouts for Special Forces and the Infantry, most women don’t make the cut in performing to the male standard, even if that line is adjusted for their genetics. Sports have proven to be the same.
Other areas that do not rely on physical conditioning, coordination, and strength are all areas the women can more than hang with the men. However, when it comes to physicality, women just don’t measure up. This isn’t sexism, discrimination, or anything other than science. Perhaps if the soy boys that make up the loudest of the liberals will simply look at the evaluations, anecdotal evidence, and testing, they will see that it’s time to put down these picket signs and instead accept the truth.
Thankfully, teams like Mid Vermont Christian School are willing to see the situation for what it is. It’s reassuring to see at least some portions of the US aren’t overrun by the liberals at this point.
