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.

Major League Baseball Considering Starting Season in Arizona During Coronavirus
The games will be played with no fans.
Major League Baseball is considering starting its regular season exclusively in the state of Arizona, with teams utilizing spring training facilities and the Arizona Diamondbacks Chase Field to play regular season games without fans present.
League officials and representatives of the MLB’s players union were reported to be in talks about the unprecedented proposal on Monday. The season was suspended in early March as the severity of the coronavirus epidemic became apparent, following in the wake of the NBA and the NHL.
Arizona has ten spring training facilities within fifty miles, all situated within the Phoenix metro area. Florida, the other state that hosts spring training facilities, has them spread over an area of 220 miles. Arizona’s warm and dry climate is also resilient to the spread of infectious diseases, and Americans have come to the state to improve their health for decades.
However, the proposal would entail games being played in empty stadiums without fans. Spring training facilities would be used, and the proposal would purportedly involve the Diamondbacks’ Chase Field hosting daily tripleheaders.
Longtime player agent Scott Boras endorsed the proposal when speaking with Fox News, arguing that the presence of Major League Baseball would provide a form of entertainment for Americans distressed by the historically unprecedented Chinese coronavirus.
“It allows for the immediacy of a schedule, where you might be able to begin it and televise it, provide Major League Baseball to America,” said Boras of the idea. “You talk to a psychologist about it and they say it’s it’s really good for a culture to have to have sport and to have a focus like that, where for a few hours a day they can take their minds off the difficult reality of the virus.”
In any case, there’s no chance of the season beginning in any capacity before mid-May at the earliest. But if the proposal is utilized, the MLB could be the first major American sporting league to resume operations in the wake of the coronavirus.
