The families of three high school girls are suing to prevent transgender “women” from participating in female sporting events.
Selina Soule, a Glastonbury High School senior, Alanna Smith, a Danbury High School sophomore, and Chelsea Mitchell, a Canton High School senior are having this lawsuit filed on their behalf by the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), a conservative nonprofit organization.
They are making the case that allowing transgenders to compete in their sporting events denies them the access to scholarship opportunities and victories that they would have otherwise earned through their hard work and dedication.
“Mentally and physically, we know the outcome before the race even starts,” said Smith, the daughter of former Major League pitcher Lee Smith. “That biological unfairness doesn’t go away because of what someone believes about gender identity. All girls deserve the chance to compete on a level playing field.”
The lawsuit has been filed against the Connecticut Association of Schools-Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference as well as the boards of education in Bloomfield, Cromwell, Glastonbury, Canton and Danbury.
“Forcing girls to be spectators in their own sports is completely at odds with Title IX, a federal law designed to create equal opportunities for women in education and athletics,” attorney Christiana Holcomb said. “Connecticut’s policy violates that law and reverses nearly 50 years of advances for women.”
The lawsuit is focused on Terry Miller and Andraya Yearwood, two transgender “females” who have dominated track and field since being allowed to masquerade as women in sporting events. They have won 15 indoor and outdoor championship races since 2017 due to their biological advantages.
“Our dream is not to come in second or third place, but to win fair and square,” Mitchell said. “All we’re asking for is a fair chance.”
“I have faced discrimination in every aspect of my life and I no longer want to remain silent,” Miller said. “I am a girl and I am a runner. I participate in athletics just like my peers to excel, find community, and meaning in my life. It is both unfair and painful that my victories have to be attacked and my hard work ignored.”
The Connecticut Association of Schools-Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference maintains that they are just following the letter of the law. They maintain that their policy is “appropriate under both state and federal law.”
Yearwood is fighting for “her” right to continue participating in girls’ races and dominate young women and deprive them of their glory and opportunity.
“I will never stop being me!” she said in her statement. “I will never stop running! I hope that the next generation of trans youth doesn’t have to fight the fights that I have. I hope they can be celebrated when they succeed not demonized. For the next generation, I run for you!”
The far-left American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) will represent the transgender “women” in court to allow them to continue to dominate while demeaning birth women in these school races.
“The idea that the law only protects the individuals with XX chromosomes as compared to individuals with XY chromosomes is found nowhere in the legislative history of Title IX, in any implementing regulation or in any other aspect of the interpretation of Title IX over the last 50 years by the courts,” said ACLU lawyer Chase Strangio, deputy director for Trans Justice with the ACLU LGBT & HIV Project.
The ADF hopes that a judge will temporarily ban transgenders from participating in girls’ races while the case is being heard.
ESPN Writer Says ‘F*ck You’ to Josh Hawley for Calling Out the NBA’s Hypocritical Groveling to China
These sports personalities really hate America.
ESPN writer Adrian Wojnarowski wrote “f*ck you” to Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) in response to his letter criticizing the NBA for groveling to China and refusing to support the U.S. military and law enforcement.
Hawley posted the response he received directly from Wojnarowski after issuing a press release on Twitter:

“On July 3, the National Basketball Association (NBA) came to an agreement with the NBA players union allowing players to wear certain social and political messages on their jerseys, almost all aligned with the message of recent anti-police protests. Conspicuously missing from the list of approved phrases are any in support of the victims of the Communist Chinese Party (CCP), including the people of Hong Kong, whose remaining freedoms are being extinguished by the CCP’s newly-enacted national security law,” Hawley wrote in the letter.
“The league’s new policy suggests a newfound commitment to enhanced employee expression. But that free expression appears to stop at the edge of your corporate sponsors’ sensibilities. And for woke capital today, profits from the Chinese market are more popular than patriotism,” he continued.
“With your new policy, you have crossed the line of sanctioning specific political messages. There is no avoiding the work of clarifying the association’s values now. This is a time for you to make clear what your league believes about human rights and about the nation that is your home. Your silence on these questions speaks volumes,” Hawley added.

If @NBA is going to put social cause statements on uniforms, why not “Support our Troops” or “Back the Blue”? Or given how much $$ @nba makes in #China, how about “Free Hong Kong”! Today I wrote to Adam Silver to ask for answers pic.twitter.com/PthYR4OxmE

Big League Politics has reported on ESPN’s bowing to China even while devoting copious amounts of time to anti-American programming on their network:
An internal ESPN memo mandated neutrality when dealing with the China-Hong Kong conflict after National Basketball Association general manager Daryl Morey made a pro-Hong Kong tweet last week that angered the Chinese government, according to a Deadspin report.
Morey, who is the general manager of the Houston Rockets team, wrote a tweet that was published on Oct. 4, saying, “Fight for Freedom. Stand with Hong Kong.” Although he deleted the comment shortly after he posted it, the backlash from China was immediate and severe.
NBA commissioner Adam Silver released a weak statement after the controversy grew, in an obvious attempt not to alienate the Chinese market that they see as a growing revenue stream.
“Over the last three decades, the NBA has developed a great affinity for the people of China. We have seen how basketball can be an important form of people-to-people exchange that deepens ties between the United States and China,” Silver said in his statement.
“At the same time, we recognize that our two countries have different political systems and beliefs. And like many global brands, we bring our business to places with different political systems around the world,” he added.
ESPN, the Disney-owned television network that has helped turn the NBA into a worldwide phenomenon, is taking a similarly pro-China stance regarding the conflict, and it is represented in their programming.
“Daryl Morey, a good man, an exceptional executive, and a conscientious human being, what were you thinking speaking up on this issue?” commentator Stephen A. Smith asked on his ESPN radio show. “It’s about a multitude of people that extends far beyond yourself that you have compromised because you had this insatiable appetite to disseminate a tweet. You don’t know better than that?”
Patriotic Americans built the professional sports industry into a global powerhouse, and now these entities are biting the hand that feeds in pursuit of raw profit.
