Commentary and Criticism about the National Education Association
We have absolutely no affiliation with the National Education Association and do not represent its views in any way, shape or form.
Writing for the NEA on November 1, 2017 (Educators Stand Up to Halt Trump Administration’s Anti-LGBTQ Agenda), Cindy Long praises the Frederick County School Board for their new LGBTQ policy.
The new “clear” and “just” policy, Long says:
“allows transgender students to participate in sports that align with their gender identity."
Let’s get this straight (no pun here).
Say a male sprinter is consistently placing 3rd or 4th when competing against other members of his biological gender. After careful consideration (and numerous meetings with the guidance councilors), he comes to the realization that he really identifies as a girl.
So now he joins the girls track team. Clearly his biological make-up will give him a physical advantage over his teammates. In fact, let’s say that by the end of the season this physical male (but psychological female) has dominated to such an extent against those who don’t share his biological gender that he (she) makes it to the state championship.
If he (she) is victorious at the state level, will this biological male (but psychological female) be able to earn a sports scholarship to play women’s track?
Can you say lawsuit if he (she) is denied?
Hmmm … I wonder what future Olympics games will be like if we continue on the current trend?
Well, at least the self-esteem of all transgender individuals will be protected.
