For the second year in a row, a transgender wrestler has won the Texas girls’ Class 6A 110-pound division.
Well, duh. The wrestler is a girl, identifying as a boy, taking testosterone while competing in the girl’s division. What did people expect? Sorry, but someone had to say it. I know we’re not supposed to point out the obvious on this topic, but how can you not when sports are the subject of the topic?
I also realize that the transgender topic makes some people nervous, because it could dig up a lot of old stereotypes and gender arguments from the past when liberals tried to convince us that there were no differences between males and females. I remember in 1992 when Time magazine did a cover story called, Why Are Men and Women Different?, and I remember thinking why on earth did they feel it necessary to explain that men and women are different?
I thought juicing was frowned upon. Isn’t that what this is? So, the transgender community gets a pass on using steroids, because… well, just because.
Mack Beggs, an 18-year-old transgender senior from Euless Trinity High School near Dallas, defeated Chelsea Sanchez in the final match Saturday. She beat her for the 2017 title as well.
I just said, she. Can I be arrested for that? Will I be shunned on social media? Should the president speak to the nation about it? How is it these days that someone who doesn’t accept when a female claims to identify as a male, or the twisted version of that, they’re the one treated like an outcast? This curiosity prompted me to do some research on transgender pronouns.
It was a comedy of cheers and jeers alike from the crowd upon his-her-he-she-they-zie-ze-zim-zer-zieself-hirself-per-ve-xe-(f)ae-ey wrestling victory. I’m not gonna lie. That was exhausting.
To his-her-he-she-they-zie-ze-zim-zer-zieself-hirself-per-ve-xe-(f)ae-ey credit, his-her-he-she-they-ze-per-ve-xe–(f)ae-ey wanted to perform in the boys division, but the rules for Texas public high schools declare that athletes must compete under the gender listed on their birth certificate. Will this now prompt people to demand the right to change the gender on their birth certificates? Did anyone in their right mind ever think high school sports would become this complicated?
Beggs entered the tournament with a 32-0 win – uh, yeah – beating three female wrestlers on his-her-he-she-they-zie-ze-zim-zer-zieself-hirself-per-ve-xe-(f)ae-ey way to the championship.
From the NY Post:
“He has so much respect for all the girls he wrestles,” said Beggs’ mother, Angela McNew. “People think Mack has been beating up on girls … The girls he wrestles with, they are tough. It has more to do with skill and discipline than strength.”

Last season Beggs won two matches by forfeit in the regional tournament when those wrestlers feared getting seriously hurt. Uh, yeah. This season his-her-he-she-they-zie-ze-zim-zer-zieself-hirself-per-ve-xe-(f)ae-ey only met with one forfeit, and apparently the girl’s coach and teammates insisted she wrestle Beggs, but the girl flat out refused. Uh, yeah.
I’m sure most transgenders are very nice, decent people in every way, and I don’t care how anyone lives their lives so long as it doesn’t affect other people. I honestly believe this. However, in this instance, Mack Beggs’ mental illness does affect the other girls in wrestling, because they don’t have the same body strength as Beggs who is juicing with testosterone.
I know, I know, I just called it a mental illness, and in a time when we’re supposed to be sensitive to people with mental illnesses, how could I say such a thing?
I call it a mental illness, because that’s what I think it is. I’m not a doctor of any kind, so when I say it’s a mental illness I’m just saying that I believe it is behavior brought on by a problem with the person’s brain. Take what I say here with a grain of salt, because I do not have the sheepskin on the wall to make a legal declaration, but do I need it in this case? I once heard a transgender say that transgender people have different chemical reactions in their brain, which could cause a person to feel and believe that they are not the gender they were born. If this is true then it can be classified as a mental illness.
Although the exact cause of most mental illnesses is not known, it’s becoming more clear through research that many of these conditions are caused by a combination of genetic, biological, psychological, and environmental factors, not personal weakness or a character defect, and recovery from a mental illness is not simply a matter of will and self-discipline. I get it.
Major medical organizations, like the American Medical Association and American Psychiatric Association, say being transgender is not a mental disorder. But there is a history with those types if organizations changing their positions on homosexuality based on politics and intimidation and not actual scientific research. No, I didn’t just equate transgenderism to homosexuality.
What I don’t get is how society is being shamed into having to accept transgenderism as normal.
I’m not saying that transgender people have a dangerous mental illness that must be treated. There are too many transgenders in society who wouldn’t harm a fly. What I am saying is that something needs to be worked out in the area of sports, because to even a non sports enthusiast casual observer, a female athlete juicing with testosterone gives an unfair advantage to the juicer over the other women competing. We ban and fine athletes for juicing in many sports, and though this issue is complicated for political reasons, it’s not too complicated to see the unfairness in it.
