Women’s sports need protection: “Transgender woman” wins national title at NCAA track championship

Craig/CeCe Tefler

From Daily Mail: A transgender woman who previously competed as a man has become a National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) track champion.

CeCe Telfer clinched the women’s 400-meter hurdles national title at the 2019 NCAA Division II Outdoor Track & Field Championships for Franklin Pierce University on May 25.

Her triumph has been surrounded by controversy as many in the running world express concerns that transgender athletes competing in women’s sports may have an unfair advantage.

Telfer completed the course with a stunning time of 57.53s, with the second place opponent trailing far behind with a score of 59.21s. She also earned All-American First Team honors with a fifth-place finish in the 100m hurdles earlier in the day.

Telfer’s coach Zach Emerson praised his team member’s performance, saying: ‘It was tough conditions out here with the wind and the heat over the last three days but, as she has over the last six months, CeCe proved herself to be tough enough to handle it. Today was a microcosm of her entire season; she was not going to let anything slow her down. I’ve never met anybody as strong as her mentally in my entire life.’

Telfer was born and raised as Craig and competed on the men’s team at Franklin Pierce University in New Hampshire from 2016 to 2018, even though she personally identified as a woman.

In the 2016-2017 season, Telfer was not even in the top 200 male athletes in her event. Her last competition as Craig was in January 2018, when she finished eighth in a field of nine in the Men’s 400 meters at the Middlebury Winter Classic in Vermont.

After that race Telfer resigned from the men’s team and underwent gender re-assignment surgery before joining the women’s team that October.

Under NCAA guidelines male athletes are eligible to compete as women if they suppress their testosterone levels for a full calendar year. Before the year-mark, they can compete on mixed-sex teams in the men’s division but not the women’s.

Telfer’s coach Emerson claims that the vast improvement she is displaying this current season versus the previous three comes down to the increased effort she’s put in. ‘She’s been been incredibly motivated this year and I think the transition one million percent had something to do with that. It’s like night and day as far as what she was willing to do as an athlete and how committed she was,’ Emerson said.

Telfer’s most recent championship, which made her Franklin Pierce University’s first gold medalist in the event, has reignited the debate over whether issues surrounding transgender athletes are being handled fairly.

Robert Johnson broached the topic in a column for Let’sRun.com, writing: ‘The fact that Telfer can change her gender and immediately become a national champion is proof positive as to why women’s sports needs protection. Telfer ran slightly faster in the 400 hurdles competing as a man (57.34) than as a woman (57.53), even though the men’s hurdles are six inches taller than the women’s hurdles.

‘Yet when Telfer ran 57.34 as a man, she didn’t even score at her conference meet — she was just 10th at the Northeast-10 Outdoor Track and Field Championships in 2016. Now she’s the national champion.’

Hollyweird’s Charlize Theron says her child came out as “trans” at three years old

A three-year-old has NO CONCEPT of who they are let alone the capacity to understand what “gender identity” means. Bad parenting to let children lead their life by their feeeeeeeeelings instead of facts.

From NBC News: Academy Award-winner Charlize Theron reportedly shared that her oldest child is transgender.

Her daughter Jackson, 7, was assigned male at birth but revealed she’s a girl four years ago, Theron said, according to an interview published Thursday in the Daily Mail.

“I thought she was a boy, too,” Theron, 43, reportedly said in the interview. “Until she looked at me at 3 years old and said, ‘I am not a boy!’”

The actress has two children: Jackson and August, 4.

NBC News was unable to confirm the veracity of the Daily Mail article. (Since when does NBC care about facts? Never stopped them from reporting baloney on President Trump.)

Theron has a legacy of LGBTQ activism, particularly when it comes to advocating for marriage equality. In 2009, she announced on “The View” that she would not marry her then-boyfriend, Stuart Townsend, until everyone had the right to marry in the United States.

“I think it would be exactly the same if we were married, but for me to go through that kind of ceremony, because I have so many friends who are gays and lesbians who would so badly want to get married, that I wouldn’t be able to sleep with myself,” she said at the time.

Read the whole story here.

Apparently Theron said, “They were born who they are and exactly where in the world both of them get to find themselves as they grow up, and who they want to be, is not for me to decide.”

Teen Vogue asks, “Is there something called biological sex?”

Yes, there is. The answer is rooted in real “science” and “biology.”

But according to Teen Vogue, “who you are is who you say you are.”

Who I say I am…trans species!

Who I say I am…genderless alien!

Who I say I am…trans abled!

Libtard actress Debra Messing apologizes to men who identify as women for promoting the idea that women have vaginas

Biology is tough for Debra Messing…

International Women’s Day was last Friday, March 8. About the “big day” from Wikipedia:

“It is a focal point in the movement for women’s rights.

After the Socialist Party of America organized a Women’s Day on February 28, 1909, in New York, the 1910 International Socialist Woman’s Conference suggested a Women’s Day be held annually. After women gained suffrage in Soviet Russia in 1917, March 8 became a national holiday there. The day was then predominantly celebrated by the socialist movement and communist countries until it was adopted by the feminist movement in about 1967. The United Nations began celebrating the day in 1975.

Today, International Women’s Day is a public holiday in some countries and largely ignored elsewhere. In some places, it is a day of protest; in others, it is a day that celebrates womanhood.”

How did I celebrate the “big” day? I went to work and then to dinner at a Japanese restaurant.

How did libtard Hollyweird-type folk celebrate? By posting tales on social media about how “evolved” they are. Or if they aren’t, how they recognize their errors.

Case in point: Actress Debra Messing who posted this message on Instagram (with a picture of vagina-inspired cupcakes): “Happy International Women’s Day! Powerful, beautiful, and sweet.”

GAG. When I want a cupcake it looks like a CUPCAKE, not a body part. No one wants to partake in a sweet indulgence by eating a vulva. They want a CUPCAKE.

What a REAL cupcake should look like (sprinkles optional)

Apparently Ms. Messing didn’t properly recognize EVERY type of woman that progressives demand you acknowledge these days so she issued an update:

I want to apologize to my trans sisters. This photo was supposed to be light, & sassy. The first thing I thought when I saw this photo was “wow how wonderful. Each one is unique in color and shape and size. The porn industry has perpetuated this myth of what a “beautiful” vagina looks like and as a result there are women who feel shame or insecure about the shape of the vulva. I loved that this picture said “every single one is beautiful and unique and that’s powerful.” I did not, however, think “but there are innumerable beautiful, unique and powerful women who don’t have a vagina. And I SHOULD have. And for that I am so so sorry. Thank you for righting my wrong.”

My very simple message for Debra:

Biological male wins women’s cycling championship

McKinnon (c) takes another win earlier this year/Instagram photo

 

McKinnon on the podium (c) for the world championship win.

This transgender woman won the women’s world cycling championship. No biological advantage there…

Of course if you have a different opinion than the good doctor you are nothing but a bigot.

From News.com.au: CYCLING’S first transgender world champion has fired back at heated criticism surrounding her breakthrough victory at the 2018 UCI Masters track championships.

Canadian philosophy professor at South Carolina’s College of Charleston Dr. Rachel McKinnon endured a torrent of online trolling after taking to social media to celebrate her world championship win in the women’s 35-44 sprint final at the Velo Sports Center in Los Angeles earlier this week (this story was dated Oct. 16.).

An image of McKinnon standing tall above her competitors during the medal presentation ceremony has spread globally in the wake of her controversial victory — just as she predicted.

McKinnon, born a biological male, won gold in the sprint final against friend Carolien Van Herrikhuyzen from the Netherlands.

An elated McKinnon claimed, to her knowledge, she is the first openly transgender athlete to win a world championship in any sport, after nudging past Van Herrikhuyzen on the final straight in a time of 12.903 seconds.

American Jennifer Wagner, who finished third, led the criticism against McKinnon’s participation in the championships.

Wagner responded to English media commentator Katie Hopkins’ online swipe at McKinnon by declaring it was not fair that McKinnon was able to compete at all. Hopkins also declared it was “febrile madness” for the UCI to sanction McKinnon’s participation.

McKinnon hit out at the criticism immediately following her victory both on social media and in interviews. She told velonews.com she enjoyed no physical advantage over her competitors despite being born a male.

“I think there is absolutely no evidence that I have an unfair advantage,” McKinnon said. “People who oppose transgender inclusion in sport put us in the double bind. It’s the “damned if you do, damned if you don’t” scenario.

“If I win, they attribute it to me being trans and having an unfair advantage. If I lose, the same people think I must not be good anyway. People will never attribute my winning to hard work which is what I think I deserve.”

She said there is no research to suggest that testosterone and body development would in anyway enhance the physical performance of transgender athletes.

She recently told USA Today that policing the testosterone levels of transgender athletes violates their human rights — declaring that should override all debates surrounding potential unfair playing fields for transgender athletes.

“We cannot have a woman legally recognised as a trans woman in society, and not be recognized that way in sports,” McKinnon said recently.

Focusing on performance advantage is largely irrelevant because this is a rights issue (#sportisahumanright). We shouldn’t be worried about trans people taking over the Olympics. We should be worried about their fairness and human rights instead.

Transgender Laverne Cox covers Cosmopolitan magazine to disrupt heteronormative ideas

laverne cox
The “truth” isn’t based in reality for some people.
From Yahoo (via HuffPo):Laverne Cox can add “Cosmopolitan covergirl” to her ever-growing list of credits and accomplishments. 
The Emmy-winning actress, producer and LGBTQ rights advocate made history as the first transgender woman ever to appear on a Cosmo cover, appearing atop Cosmopolitan South Africa’s February issue in a sheer black leotard. The Valentine’s Day-themed #SayYesToLove edition is focused on LGBTQ issues, and features a rainbow-colored masthead designed specifically for the occasion.
Cox, 45, debuted the cover on Twitter and Instagram early Monday.
In a candid video interview that accompanied the issue’s release, Cox got candid about her celebrity crush, her proudest career moment and her ongoing struggle for acceptance in the heteronormative world of show business.
“As a black transgender woman, I’ve often been kept a secret by the men that I’ve dated,” she said. “So when my ex-boyfriend introduced me to his dad and invited me to spend Hanukkah with him and his family, it was the most special thing ever.”
She added, “Trans women deserve to be loved out in the open and in the light.”
Previously, Cox appeared in the October 2016 issue of Cosmopolitan’s U.S. edition, paying tribute to Tina Turner, Beyoncé and other iconic black women in a photo feature to promote her role in Fox’s television reboot of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.”
Holly Meadows, who is Cosmopolitan South Africa’s editor-in-chief, said the magazine aimed to “disrupt heteronormative ideas around February and Valentine’s Day and look at love in 2018” in its latest issue. 
“Our goal was to play a small part in providing visibility for the LGBTQI+ community, of which Laverne has become a revolutionary icon,” she added.

More lib speak: Eton college head says their young men need to be more "gender intelligent"

gender
That modern intelligence might be challenged in biology class.
From The Guardian: Pupils at Eton College need to be more “gender-intelligent” according to the headmaster, who indicated that any student at the all-male boarding school wishing to transition genders would be allowed to stay.
Simon Henderson, who took over the elite public school in 2015, told the Guardian that efforts to prepare its pupils for the modern world now included LGBT-awareness education and talks by the founder of the Everyday Sexism Project, Laura Bates.
“I’m very keen that we are very aware that as an all-boys school there’s a responsibility for young men to be gender-intelligent,” he said.
Asked whether this extended to accepting transgender students at the £38,000-a-year school, Henderson said: “With any pastoral situation, we would support them in the best way we thought was appropriate for their particular circumstances.”
Eton College, which was founded by Henry VI in 1440, has educated the sons of the rich and powerful for more than five centuries, including 19 British prime ministers. Unlike many other schools, Eton has not yet been required to accommodate a transgender pupil,” Henderson said. “We have not been faced with that particular situation. Conceivably they would stay if it was felt to be the right thing for them.”
With growing transgender awareness among young people, schools across the country have been trying to adapt, among them Brighton College, an independent co-educational day and boarding school, which has scrapped distinctions between girls’ and boys’ uniforms. Single sex schools have also successfully dealt with young people transitioning.
Arguably, Eton – with its tailcoats, boarding houses and idiosyncratic traditions – may find it harder than others to adapt. In addition to the 1,300-strong all-male student body, just 20 of the 180 teaching staff are women and there are no plans to admit girls.
To that end, Henderson is trying to build more meaningful links with girls’ schools. He wants to increase the number of female teachers, as well as ethnic diversity, and he emphasises the broad diversity of visiting speakers, among them an Old Etonian whose subject was coming out as gay while a pupil at the college.
Read the whole story here.
In closing, Henderson argues that Eton may appear unaltered with its old-fashioned uniforms, quirky games and bizarre lexicon, but underneath the surface it is changing inexorably. Like any other school, Eton has to deal with the modern challenges of drugs, social media and mental health difficulties.
“I want us to be a modern, forward-thinking, relevant school,” he said. “Eton has always subtly reinvented itself. But you have moments in an institution – and this is one of those moments – when it has to take a step forward.”

Rocklin charter school won't allow parents to opt out of "transgender" teachings

robin stout rocklin superintendent

Rocklin Superintendent Robin Stout

Solution: Disenroll and/or homeschool.
I told you about this school in August when a kindergarten teacher led a “transgender” discussion in class, to introduce a child who was “transitioning,” without notifying parents of the discussion. Many parents were outraged.
Looks like the school is doubling down on denying biology and moving forward with the “transgender” agenda.
From KCRA: The school board for Rocklin Academy Charter School voted late Monday night in favor of a literary policy that allows controversial books like “I Am Jazz,” which is about a transgender girl, to be read in class and won’t allow parents the option of opting their children out of that lesson.
However, the school will “endeavor” to notify parents about such controversial topics.
Hundreds of parents packed the charter school board meeting for the Rocklin Academy Family of Schools Monday for a passionate debate about gender identity and its place in the classroom.
Some parents proposed a new policy requiring the charter school to let them know if controversial topics, like gender identity, would be discussed in class and allow their students to opt out.
“For them to say that they can teach my child about transgender without me even knowing about it is wrong,” said parent Chelsea McQuistan, who has two children who attend Rocklin Academy Gateway and a third who is about to enter kindergarten.
“Gender and sexuality are not the same thing, and I think we end up in a place where parents can opt out of anything they find offensive, which is subjective,” said Jen Hansen, another parent in the charter school.
The debate was sparked in June when a Rocklin Academy Gateway transgender student brought the book “I Am Jazz,” to her kindergarten class. She then asked the teacher to read the book, which is about a transgender girl’s transition, to the class so other students knew what she was going through.
Some parents said their children came home questioning their gender after school. “This book was outside the curriculum and I see it as a controversial subject to discuss with a kindergartner,” said Wendy Sickler, who is the parent of two kids at Rocklin Academy Gateway.
Ankur Dhawan’s daughter was in class when the teacher read “I Am Jazz” to students and was taken aback when she told him about it.
“I’ve struggled with the question of parental notification quite a bit. But when I put my need against the child who’s going through that transition, I realized it’s not the same thing,” Dhawan said. “This child needs us to come together as a community and respect their dignity and their character.”
California law allows parents to opt out of sex education, but gender identity doesn’t fall under that category.
“It’s like race or religion or ethnicity. It’s a protected class but it’s not sex ed so parents actually don’t have the opportunity to opt out and it would be illegal for the school to make it possible to opt out,” said Elizabeth Ashford, who works for Fiona Hutton and Associates, the public relations firm hired by Rocklin Academy to serve as spokesperson.
“It does not prohibit an opt-out provision for school districts, so for them to say that is just disingenuous,” California Family Council Director Greg Burt said in response to Ashford’s statement.
The school board heard more than three hours of comment before they voted late Monday to not to change their current literature policy, which allows the inclusion of transgender characters, and “endeavor” to notify parents about controversial topics.
“The school is going to endeavor to do that,” Ashford said. “If they can’t get to it ahead of it, they will try to inform the parents after the fact.”
The board also struck down a proposal to allow parents to opt out of gender identity topics in class.
Rocklin Academy said 14 families have chosen to disenroll from their charter schools as a result of this issue, and they expect more families to withdraw in the wake of the board meeting.
