Female Students File Lawsuit Over Rules That Allow Biological Males to Compete in Women’s Sports

“It’s also frustrating and disheartening to know that they had an unfair advantage against me”

If biological males who live as women win every competition, what is the point of women’s sports?

Tyler O’Neil reports at PJ Media:

Female Athletes File Title IX Lawsuit to Reverse Unfair Trans Rules

On Wednesday, three high school girls and their mothers filed a Title IX lawsuit against the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference (CIAC), challenging the rules that allow biological males to compete in women’s high school sports. The lawsuit alleges that CIAC and other education officials violated Title IX of the Civil Rights Act by discriminating against girls and failing to provide effective accommodation to allow girls to compete on a level playing field.

High school senior Chelsea Mitchell, the fastest biological girl in Connecticut who has nonetheless lost four state championships to male competitors who identified as female, told PJ Media what it feels like to train as hard as she can without hope of ever emerging victorious. She joined the lawsuit in order to secure a fair playing field for girls to compete.

“It’s very unfair for me and the other girls to race against biological males. It has inspired me and the other girls to stand up and fight for our right to compete and to have a fair competition,” Mitchell said. She went on to describe the experience of competing against males in women’s sports.

“Lining up against them is very intimidating. It’s also frustrating and disheartening to know that they had an unfair advantage against me,” the track star confided. “I’ve really felt defeated. There really isn’t much more I can do than just run my race every time. Every race I’ve ever run against the biological males, I’ve lost. It’s definitely very defeating. It makes you wonder why you’re continuing to run.”

Every woman should stand with these girls and support this lawsuit. If it’s so important for ‘men identifying as women’ to compete in sports, let them start their own competition against like-thinking individuals.

    It’s so progressive to have a position as “you must accept and celebrate me while I exploit you” in order to be morally woke.

    Not just women, all rational people must support any legal action taken to end this nonsense. All girls should boycott all events where these boys are entered. If their school insists, go to the starting line and stand there while the boys run. I’m surprised it has taken this long for any sort of action to be taken. Perhaps radian is correct that the girls support Leftist causes, or perhaps it is more likely that their parents do.

      randian – missed an “n”.

      Seeking the support of “all rational people” on this issue may severely limit the audience. Indeed, my hunch is the delay in filing a suit is because of money. A suit that can end up at SCOTUS can cost a fortune and monetary damages are iffy. Traditionally, organizations like the ACLU might fund these things, except that these days such groups appear to prefer the “woke” kinds of issues, i.e., not the girls’ side.

I have no problem with boys in dresses as a general principle, as long as they aren’t harming anyone. I have no problem with “reasonable accommodations” that are actually reasonable (like single stall restrooms or changing areas that can be labelled gender neutral and used by any one person). However, when boys in dresses parade their penises through girls’ locker rooms, they are harming someone else. When boys in dresses are allowed to compete as if they were actually girls, then they are harming someone else. There have to be limits to the crazy that you allow.

    As to adults, I agree; but do have a problem with this happening to children who are not capable of making life-altering, informed decisions for themselves.

    I am a bit surprised that this suit has taken so long in coming, as those girls in CT have been getting harmed for a long time; and wonder if, by the time this makes it to SCOTUS, enough science-deniers will be gone for them to win.

I would have some sympathy for these students but this is what women/girls get for supporting progressive causes. You would think this a lesson in unexpected consequences, but I guarantee none of them will put two and two together.

This was 110% predictable from the outset of the “trans” fad. Well, for anyone without ideological blinders on.

This is going to be interesting.

The answer to the question of whether allowing Transsexuals to compete violates Title IX should be obvious.

But…should be obvious does not easily predict the outcome of a lawsuit.

Wouldn’t it be fun to have this start in front of a liberal judge who believes gender transcends genetics and have it crawl its way up to the Supreme Court?

Oh, and let’s ask for expedited handling because of the upcoming Olympic Games!

    “The answer to the question of whether allowing Transsexuals to compete violates Title IX should be obvious.” Given that Title IX speaks only of “sex” (and does not mention “gender,”) the outcome should indeed be obvious.

    But given the Humpty Dumpty** nature of so many of our jurists, a court just might accept the Newspeak definition of “sex,” that sex is gender and gender is sex. Even if/when that means that the subjective (“I feeeeel like a girl!”) trumps the objective reality of male biology.

    **”When I use a word,” Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, “it means just what I choose it to mean—neither more nor less.” “The question is,” said Alice, “whether you can make words mean so many different things.” “The question is,” said Humpty Dumpty, “which is to be master—that’s all.”
