Bathrooms aside, another transgender related issue has pertained to their participation in sports. Should, for instance, a man who transitioned female be able to complete as a female?
I’d say no, as it provides an unfair advantage. Take male-to-female transgender MMA fighter Fallon Fox, who routinely annihilates her opponents. If a woman were forced to fight against a non-transgendered male everyone would condemn it as abuse, but in the age of political correctness we have to pretend that this is OK in the name of “acceptance.”

Alaskan mother Jennifer VanPelt is not happy that her daughter missed out on a podium appearance at a state track meet after a transgender girl was allowed to compete and got the third-best time in a 200-meter varsity final race.
This resulted in VanPelt’s daughter finishing in fifth place and missing a potential podium appearance granted even to fourth place finishers.
Alaska Schools Activities Association (ASAA) Executive Director Billy Strickland issued a statement during the Friday meet on the matter at hand.
“We didn’t want to necessarily create a situation where we were going to bring in a committee and those types of things just because it’s just not practical here,” he said.
We reached out to Jennifer VanPelt for comment and she shared her opinions regarding the incident.
When asked how Wangyot’s participation affected her daughter, VanPelt said “it did not knock her out of contention, but it did take away a podium position,” and she was adamant that her daughter had competed against a male.
“At our state track and field meet they award medals and a spot on the podium to the top 4. Allison placed 5th. We had no idea she was running against a male until after the race was over,” she said. “She was upset. How do you explain to her that not only does she need to train to beat her fellow female athletes now she should also train to beat the males?”
This high school could use a new slogan; “Where the men are men, and so are the women.”
