There’s no beating the patriarchy.
The gender equality movement has officially come full circle and is now consuming itself in the most glorious of fashions. From demanding equal rights to assuring us there’s zero difference between men and women and now, men are beating women at their own games.
For the first time in Alaska’s recorded history, a guy competed in a the girls state championships. And he won.
Peter Hasson writes for the Daily Caller:
Haines senior Nattaphon Wangyot–who self-identifies as a girl–advanced to the state finals in the 100-meter and 200-meter events. He won fifth place in the 100-meter dash and third place in the 200-meter. In both events, he competed against girls as young as ninth grade.
One of the girls Wangyot beat out for a slot at the state meet, Hutchison runner Emma Daniels, took issue with allowing a male athlete to compete in girls events.
“I’m glad that this person is comfortable with who they are and they’re able to be happy in who they are, but I don’t think it’s competitively completely 100-percent fair,” she told a local CBS station.
It’s almost like biologically, men and women are not the same… Who knew?
As concerned parents rightly noted, these girls are competing for college scholarships, only to be edged out of the running by a dude who should be competing with other dudes.
The Alaska Schools Activities Association Director, Billy Strickland, says they allowed Wangyot to compete because they didn’t want to deal with committees and all that stuff, ““We didn’t want to necessarily create a situation where we were going to bring in a committee and those types of things just because it’s just not practical here.”
Evidently, avoiding bureaucracy is a greater consideration than the wellbeing of the female athletes competing.
The moral of the story? There’s no beating the patriarchy.
