A biological male won the first Women’s Track and Field NCAA title, even though she was previously competing as a man named Craig as recently as 2018.
CeCe Telfer, a transgender woman from New Hampshire attending Franklin Pierce University, won the first ever NCAA title for the sport, and also made history as the first biologically male competing on a woman’s team to do so.
According to Franklin Pierce, “Telfer is the first student-athlete in Franklin Pierce history to collect an individual national title,” adding that when the biologically male athlete”crossed the line as a national champion, she did so by posting her best time at the collegiate level, with a mark of 57.53 seconds.”
Telfer previously ran a variety of events for Franklin Pierce’s men’s team, during most of which time he went by the first name Craig, according to school records.
Telfer competed on FPU’s men’s track team as recently as January 2018, according to published meet results from the Middlebury Winter Classic in Vermont. Telfer had started using the name CeCe at that point, while still competing on the men’s team.
Transgendered athletes have been making “history” and winning titles while playing on gender bending teams. Last year, another trans woman won a lawsuit allowing her to play on a women’s football team, despite the fact that she still has a biologically male body and fears that she may physically hurt biological women.
Ginther had filed a lawsuit against the owner of the Minnesota Vixen, Laura Brown, and the Independent Women’s Football League. After trying out for the Vixen, Ginther had been told that the league did not allow transgender women(who possess male physiology) to participate. However, it seems the league’s policy was in violation of the Minnesota Human Rights Act’s anti- discrimination provisions, as indicated by the court ruling against the women’s football league in which players are unpaid.
Standing at six feet tall and carrying a “slightly muscular frame” according to a Minnesota Public Radio article, Ginther possess a physique that is extremely rare if not outright impossible for women to possess. The reality of Ginther obtaining an innate physical advantage in full-contact football(the rules by which the Independent Women’s Football League operates)on the basis of her biological male gender didn’t seem to present a cause to object on the behalf of the Minnesota judiciary that ruled on behalf of Ginther’s claim of discrimination.
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.
