Five Men Claim To Be Transgender Women In Order To Compete In Boston Marathon As Females

Published

on

Some 50 years ago, a Boston Marathon official attempted to drag a woman off the marathon’s course after she attempted to enter the 1967 men’s-only race.

Photogrpahers caught the moment in now infamous phots that some claim are a landmark moment in the fight for women’s equality in sports.

Today, however, the marathon’s position on gender has completely changed.

When runners take to the streets of Boston next Monday to run the annual marathon, competitors will be allowed to register and race using the gender they identify with, according to a report from ABC News.

“We take people at their word. We register people as they specify themselves to be,” Chief of the Boston Athletic Association, Tom Grilk, said. “Members of the LGBT community have had a lot to deal with over the years, and we’d rather not add to that burden.”

The Boston Marathon’s new position on gender has caused as many as five biological males to register as transgender females in order to compete in this year’s race as females.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t look as though Boston will be alone in making such a radical move.

ABC News also noted that several other cities – like Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, and London – are close to following Boston’s lead.

“We want to be inclusive and sensitive to all of our participants,” Chicago Marathon executive race director Carey Pinkowski told ABC News. “At this point, we don’t feel that we need to require legal or medical records or anything along those lines.”

Of course, while ABC and many other mainstream media outlets have taken the opportunity celebrate the Boston Marathon’s shift in gender policy as a monumental victory for transgender rights, that hasn’t stopped the same media from continuing to attack the marathon’s policy requiring participants to present a photo ID.

According to ABC News, the marathon’s policy still requires competitors to present a photo ID verifying their name and gender, a policy transgender advocates deem “unfair.”

Apparently, this is oppression of the worst form, because it deals with those transgender individuals who haven’t felt their gender identity is important enough to have their personal information legally changed.

What a travesty.

Conservative-Friendly Sports Writer Jason Whitlock: First Woman to Play in Power Five College Football Game a “Make-A-Wish” Publicity Stunt

The voice of reason.

Jason Whitlock, a former ESPN and Fox Sports writer and current OutKick columnist, did not hold back in his criticism of the Sarah Fuller publicity stunt and the subsequent reaction that called her a “hero” and a “trailblazer.”

Sarah Fuller is a goalie for the Vanderbilt University women’s soccer team. But Vanderbilt’s football team, already having a dreadful enough of a season as it is, at one point did not have a kicker going into Saturday’s contest against Missouri—because of, you guessed it, COVID-19. So they turned to Fuller and added her to the roster, thus making her the first woman to ever play in a Power Five college football game. (Power Five refers to the sport’s five major conferences: the ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-12, and SEC. Vanderbilt is an SEC team.)

Her only appearance in the game—which Vanderbilt lost 41-0—featured her squib kicking the ball to Missouri’s 37-yard line at the beginning of the second half and dashing to the sideline. That’s it.

So it was only a matter of time before Whitlock, who does not describe himself as conservative but is clearly conservative-friendly, bashed the virtue-signaling surrounding Fuller’s appearance.

“Sarah Fuller briefly made football socially acceptable for America’s most ardent virtue-signalers. That was her primary accomplishment, pleasing Make A Wish America,” Whitlock wrote. “I don’t believe she played football. She scored a point in the culture war.”

Whitlock acknowledges that Fuller is an elite athlete, given that she plays goalie for a Division 1 soccer team which just won its conference championship last week and is heading for the NCAA Tournament in the spring, but says that putting her in this situation only diminishes female athletes.

“I don’t blame Sarah Fuller. She’s an accomplished, high-level Division 1 athlete. She’s a soccer goalie for the Vanderbilt women’s soccer team. She’s been baited into believing competing against men is her North star. Maybe it is. It shouldn’t be,” he wrote.

He added: “Sarah Fuller is an elite soccer player. She’s a terrible football player, arguably the worst to ever take the field in the SEC. The announcers during the game said [Vanderbilt head coach Derek Mason] wasn’t comfortable using her [to] kick field goals unless they were inside the 15-yard line. There were pictures of her warming up in pregame kicking 14-yard field goals. Her athleticism does not need to be validated by competing against men in any capacity, let alone in a sport that is not her specialty.”

Whitlock also attacked “culture warriors” for hailing Fuller as “Jackie Robinson 2.0” and spending tons of money to prop up women as the athletic equals of men.

“There’s a lot of money being spent to create the illusion that women can and should be playing football against men. The people spending the money hate football. It epitomizes ‘toxic masculinity’… except when women are on the field. Football should also be shuttered because of the head trauma dangers… unless women are playing. Oh, and during this COVID pandemic, it’s irresponsible for these Power 5 schools to exploit these college athletes… unless there’s a woman playing.”

Read Whitlock’s entire op-ed here. Thank God the sports writing world has at least one voice who can speak the truth like this. As someone who used to write about sports myself, I’m well aware that there are far too few Whitlocks in the profession.
