More than 150,000 people have signed a LifeSiteNews petition in support of a female high school track runner fighting against the inclusion of biological male transgender athletes in women’s sports.
The petition was created in support of Selina Soule, a Junior track runner at Bloomfield High School in Connecticut. She recently filed a lawsuit with the Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights over her state’s decision to allow biologically male athletes to compete against female track runners.
Soule narrowly missed a chance to compete in the state championship, in part because of two biological male trans athletes who took first and second place. Soule came in an eighth-place finish for an event in which the top six competitors qualified for the championship.
She’s described an environment in which track competitions in her state are rendered non-competitive, dominated by transgender athletes who leave no chance for athletes such as Soule to win. She previously spoke on Tucker Carlson Tonight in June about the predicament facing female high athletes in Connecticut.
The newfound inclusion of trans athletes in formerly women’s sporting events has dire implications for the entire athletic field. Track and field isn’t the only sport in which the competitive parameters have been drastically altered by biological males with inherent physical advantages unseen in biological female competitors.
A trans athlete smashed all-time records at a women’s cycling event in England in October.
Female athletes such as Soule who have spoken out against the unfair competition of trans athletes in their sports have faced criticisms and accusations of bigotry from those who refuse to accept any notion of inherent physical differences between men and women.
Liberalism has created a world in which the most obvious, non-controversial biological realities visible to mankind are rendered politically incorrect and to be ignored, even if it means devastating the very notion of women’s sports.
Ohio High School Football Players Reinstated After Suspension For Entering Field With Thin Blue Line, American Flags
Why were they even suspended?
Two Little Miami, Ohio high school football players who were suspended from their team for entering a game while carrying the Thin Blue Line and Thin Red Line(commemorating firefighters) flags have been freed from suspension, after community members expressed outrage at the punishment of the two young men.
Jarad Bentley and Brady Williams had been given an indefinite suspension from the Little Miami High School football team for carrying the two flags onto the field before a game, apparently violating a rule against political symbols. The two seniors reject the notion that they were making a political statement, and one of the boys had spoken of his intention to honor first responders, such as his own father, on the anniversary of 9/11.
Two Little Miami football players pay the price for civil disobedience. They were told not to carry onto the field thin blue line and thin red line flags at their 9/11 game. They did anyway. The school has now suspended them from the team indefinitely. #ThinBlueLine #ThinRedLine pic.twitter.com/19y9GAvaxr

After concerned parents and community members organized a protest event to stand with Williams and Bentley, the Little Miami School Board reversed its decision, freeing the senior players from suspension.
The President of the school board seemed keen to establish that the institution “supports police,” perhaps feeling the pressure from angry parents displeased to see the patriotic young men kicked from the football team for an innocuous display of patriotism.

They still might face some consequences, and reportedly team officials had commanded the players not to enter the field with the flags. Their punishment will be settled within the athletic department’s code of conduct.
College and high school sports teams put on elaborate displays in support of the left-wing Black Lives Matter movement all the time. Pro-police and firefighter flags are not a political statement by a long shot. This suspension never should’ve been issued in the first place.
