Women’s cycling has become the latest women’s sport to be radically altered by the new participation of transgender athletes who are biologically male.
Rachel McKinnon broke a women’s world world when competing at the 2019 Masters Track Cycling World Championships on Saturday in Manchester, England. She also won the gold medal.
McKinnon is a transgender female who was born male. She’s the latest trans athlete to achieve quick and resounding success when competing against biological female, over whom she possess a considerable natural advantage.
The presence of biologically male trans athletes in women’s sports is threatening to box out many women from participating in athletic competitions they stand little to no chance to win in.
Some trans athletes have even won discrimination lawsuits against women’s athletic teams and leagues that have declined to allow them to participate.
McKinnon has rejected the idea that her competition in the women’s sports event was unfair. She likened the participation of trans athletes to black athletes, claiming restricting them from competition would be similar.
“So, if we want to say, that I believe you’re a woman for all of society, except for this massive central part that is sport, then that’s not fair.”
A British former women’s cycling champion, Victoria Hood, spoke out in opposition to McKinnon’s participation in the sport. McKinnon fired back, claiming that Hood “has expressed an irrational fear of trans women. An irrational fear of trans women is the dictionary definition of transphobia. Transphobia has no place in sport.”
Many conservative and religious people have pointed out that receiving hormone replacement therapy and identifying as a woman does not make someone a woman. It appears the women sporting world’s refusal to accept such a clear reality could mean that it will cease to exist as we know it.
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.
