Boy Identifying as Female Wins Girls’ Irish Dancing Regionals, Qualifies for World Championships

Boy Identifying as Female Wins Girls’ Irish Dancing Regionals, Qualifies for World Championships

“My daughter was in absolute tears. She was like, ‘This is so unfair.’ I totally agree.”

A boy who identifies as a female won first place in the girls’ U14 2023 Southern Region Oireachtas competitions for Irish dancing.

The boy qualifies for the world championships.

Does it shock anyone that the boy competed in the boy division this year, where he placed 11th in the world? Yeah, I’m not shocked, either.

Parents are ticked off. From The Daily Signal:

“Oh, my gosh. It’s going to make me cry,” said one mother, whose daughter danced in the same competition as the trans-identifying boy in the Dallas, Texas, event. “I never thought I was going to have to deal with this. And my heart breaks for my daughter and the other girls that are having to deal with this. They are too young to have to deal with topics that are going on in society, that are adult topics, that they don’t quite comprehend yet.”

“They just look at it as unfair,” she added emotionally. “And it’s really hard to explain to them what’s going on and why they have to accept it. That’s what society’s making them do. As a mom, I want to be an advocate for my daughter. But at the same time, I have to protect my family.”

“My daughter was in absolute tears,” shared the mother whose daughter competed against the boy last weekend. Her daughter was unaware he was a boy until he received first place and word spread like wildfire throughout the competition, she said. “She was like, ‘This is so unfair.’ I totally agree.”

“Parents think it’s outrageous,” shared one dancer’s parent, who spoke anonymously to preserve family privacy. “They are absolutely outraged. It’s absolutely ridiculous, just like in any other sport, and we’re seeing it play out on the national stage in the congressional hearings this week.”

“The feeling is one of fundamental unfairness,” this parent added. “And then obviously the frustration and resentment that goes along with that.”

“It’s just not OK,” protested a mother whose daughter also danced at the Southern Region Oireachtas and is now heading to the World Championships. “It’s totally wrong. It’s unfair, especially in Irish dance. A lot of it is just about power and strength. Yes, there is the technique … but a lot of it also has to do with strength and power and the boys are stronger.”

The Daily Signal reviewed message boards within the Irish dancing community where many parents voiced their frustrations.

Their anger escalated “when their posts were deleted by the Voy message board moderator (who also deleted a post by this journalist [The Daily Signal’s Mary Margaret Olohan] requesting parents reach out for this story).”

Irish dancing does not separate the sexes solely based on sex. Male and female Irish dancing are entirely different:

Maggie McKneely, a young woman who competed in the adult competition at the Southern Region Oireachtas last weekend, also reflected on the situation in a phone interview with The Daily Signal.

“Most sports, men and women tend to do the same basic activity, just at very different skill levels, but Irish dance is highly gendered,” explained McKneely, who works as a legislative strategist for the conservative organization, Concerned Women for America. “The two sexes wear different shoes, they wear different clothes, they actually have completely different dance styles. They’re really not interchangeable in any way.”

“If a boy decides to compete as a girl, he has to learn how to dance like a girl and wear girls’ dance shoes,” she continued. “So I think it’s really ridiculous. It’s not fair to the kids. It’s certainly not fair to the girls who have to compete against the boy. And it totally undermines what makes Irish dance what it is, the highly gendered aspect of it is a defining feature.”

The judges don’t even judge the males and females the same. Former Irish dance instructor and judge Rowena Ryan said the majority within the community supports the LGBT community, but it doesn’t change facts:

But that doesn’t change the fact that boys have physical advantages over girls in Irish dance, she said: “There’s just no getting around the physical differences between men and women.”

“When you’re judging competitions between girls and boys, things that you look for are different in a male dancer compared to a female dancer,” she said. “So I just don’t think it’s fair to have the two competing against another because they are judged on different criteria.”

“You can identify as a giraffe if that’s what you want to do,” the former judge added. “I believe firmly in live and let live. It’s when someone else’s decisions are then affecting a lot of other people that you then have to sit back and decide what needs to happen. And I’m sorry, but girls need to compete against girls and boys need to compete against boys.”

I’ve had to write “feels” way too often this week. But I’ll do it again. Facts don’t care about your feels. Your feels do not matter.

Not the Wild West anymore

Where are the real men to take care of this crap

Mothers pull your daughters till this shit stops

“Parents think it’s outrageous,” shared one dancer’s parent…”

Well, obviously, the NWO hasn’t been properly explained to you, peasant. IE: Men make the best women. Long live the patriarchy. Now, get back in line!

Ginger Rogers did it backwards in high heels.

Hmmmmm . . . I see a great career opportunity for Dylan Mulvaney. Maybe “she, he, it” should move to Ireland.

Although I’d prefer “he, she, it” move to Gaza.

I hate to say it because it sounds cold but the only way to stop this crap is for ALL women of any age to boycott any event that has a tranny in it. Until they do that, they will be humiliated over and over. I can also blame the parents of the younger girls who are made to compete against biological males.

    The parents of the tranny guy are among the worst in this whole episode. They are sick perverts, themselves, obviously, and are pushing their personal perversions on society. They need to be shunned and removed from all public participation in anything. The family, itself, is sick and depraved.

    The brothers and boyfriends of the girls need to beat the living sh*t out of the tranny punks, repeatedly and viciously, until this nonsense stops

    You think it’s bad now? Wait unit he becomes a Rockette.


He will probably win because the judges would be accused of transphobia otherwise.

“And it’s really hard to explain to them what’s going on and why they have to accept it.”

No, they don’t have to accept it. Reject this nonsense and say so. Pull your daughters from competitions where boys show up and be loud about it.

The kicker is this fraud competed as a guy, then a few months later, all the sudden decided he was a girl. Nothing suspicious about that, amirite.
The IDTANA – Southern Region, Inc. has specific rules to protect children, but, as with all the new woke rules, one child’s protection is another child’s slap in the face. SMH

I think Pete Buttigieg should spend his time mixing drinks for these perverts. Then we can call him Trans Potation Secretary.

Half of the world’s population is female and until the Soccer Moms stand up and pull their daughters from competition this will continue.

For all of those who “vote for the person and not the party” since 2008 you have had plenty of evidence which party represents your morals, ethics, ideals and how you want to leave this county for your kids.

Neither party is perfect but one party clearly is out of control and is leading the country in the wrong direction.

For the good of the country November 2024 it’’s time to retake control of both Houses of Congress along with the Oval Office.

. “And it’s really hard to explain to them what’s going on and why they have to accept it.“

Here’s the thing, they don’t have to accept it. Stand up for yourselves before you lose everything.

Not the Wild West anymore

Where are the real men to take care of this crap

you really need to go back home to milwaukee–not surprised that you’re wondering where the ” real men ” are–given your tiresome vitriol towards all things texas would surmise ” real men ” wouldn’t come within a couple miles of you

without female offspring / relatives involved in a situation such as described here, difficult for ” real men ” to demonstrate ” injury ” of some sort ( at least in court )

this is a parent’s issue ( with our support, certainly ) as they CAN demonstrate ” harm or injury ” to their offspring/relatives/themselves directly

while there are still remnants of respect for ” the law ” in our country, is the prescribed course to follow and exhaust before turning to other methods

so sad. Ireland lost. Pray for us, St Patrick
