Female Sports are for Females

Biological female athletes must be allowed to compete against those who share the exact origins

It was one of those potential myths that lingered on and on. It simply would not go away. As the story goes, the U.S. women’s national soccer team lost a soccer match to a group of under 15-year-old boys. Could it be true?

It Certainly Did Happen

It wasn’t easy for most people to authenticate since traditional sports media didn’t cover the game. On November 9th of this year, however, Carli Lloyd, one of the mainstays of the U.S. women’s soccer team, confirmed that it was true. She said the game occurred in April of 2017, two years before the U.S. women’s team won its second straight World Cup. The score was 5 to 2.

The opposing team comprised boys on FC Dallas – “FC” stands for “football club.” The contest was considered only a practice game. There had been some reporting on the game as it occurred but it generally went under the radar.

The Daily Mail, published in the United Kingdom, ran an extensive piece on it, but for some reason, the story didn’t circulate to the degree that one might presume.

The Implications

Let us unpack exactly what it means when the U.S. women’s national team loses to 12, 13, and 14-year-old boys, even in a practice game.

Each and every one of the members of the women’s team, that year or any year,  has already graduated from college. This means that they are at least 21 years old. That particular team, in 2017, had veteran players, including Carli Lloyd, the perpetually annoying Megan Rapinoe, Abby Wambach, and many others who were well past age 25 and in some cases, past age 30, at the peak of their strength and fitness.

As such, these adult professional soccer players, representing some of the finest female athletes in the world, were twice the age of the young teenagers from Dallas. If this isn’t the best argument ever for keeping individuals who are born as males but transition to females out of women’s soccer, as well as sports in general, I don’t know what is.

Fittingly, No Shame

It was no fluke: the young boys played their typically masterful game and there was no shame that these women lost to them. Indeed, the women had a spectacular run for the rest of that year and throughout the World Cup matches that soon followed.

None of them felt humbled or somehow less than deserving to be proclaimed and honored as female soccer stars.

Flash forward to today, 6 1⁄2 years later, where legions of Leftists proclaim that it’s perfectly okay for people born as males to transition and enter women’s sports. Now imagine three or four of these young boys from Dallas deciding that they want to be girls. Would they not immediately dominate the sport?

Imagine that the whole team decided that they wanted to be girls. They could overtake the U.S. women’s national team and every other national team worldwide.

Exceedingly Clear    

In a nutshell, let men play men’s sports, let women play women’s sports, and figure out a way to allow transgender athletes to compete against other transgender athletes.

Do not, however, lump them into women’s sports because it is blatantly unfair. It deprives females who have striven to excel in sports, in some cases for their whole lives, and to compete at the highest levels.

Whether it’s tennis, cycling, rowing, swimming, or playing any team sport, which almost always involves some type of ball, wrestling, weightlifting, skating, skiing, or track and field events, biological female athletes must be protected and must be allowed to compete against those who share the exact origins, anything less is a sham and puts females in danger.

The Denial of Objective Reality

Why does the Left so vehemently encourage intrusions into women’s sports? Why do they so vigorously want to convince 8-year-olds to be unsure which gender they should ‘choose’?

One explanation, which has been posited by those who follow the Left and the transgender movement closely, is that the Left seeks to upend all notions of objective reality. If they induce enough young people to be confused about whether they should be boys or girls, ensure that there is nothing that you can count on in life, and proclaim that biology is fluid, you set up a generation that can be led in any direction you want now and forevermore. Power is the Left’s ultimate goal: unrelenting power far into the future over a compliant populace.

What Does the Term African American Mean?

The Left vehemently champions racial division

Published

on

I’ve never understood why Black Americans for several decades running were referred to as African Americans. Even if their ancestors were from Africa, the majority of the nation’s 44 million Black Americans has never been to Africa, have no viable connection to the continent itself, and have little or no concern about it.

Please Explain it to Me

Now here’s the really confusing part. Black Canadians, to my knowledge, generally have never been called African Canadians. Black people in Mexico have not been called African Mexicans. There’s little use of this type of terminology in Europe such as African French, African Italians, African Spanish, or African Portuguese.

Why, only in America, did the description of Black Americans, namely African Americans ever take hold? Overarching names for the various races have fallen out of favor in recent years. White Americans generally are not referred to as Caucasians. Black Americans are not referred to as Negroes.

Endless Morphs

You have to wonder how and why terminology, for various segments of our population, keeps morphing into something new. At one time white Americans referred to black people as colored people. If I were a member of the black community and was referred to by white people as a colored person, I would be upset. We all have a color!

Later, the most appropriate way to address someone of color was to say they were a person of color. However, that is also a misnomer as once again, we are all of some color.

Scientists, anthropologists, social researchers, and others have pointed out that theoretically there are no races. If you lined up every single person on Earth from the lightest skin to the darkest skin the gradation from person to person would be so slight as to be virtually undetectable.

I like the approach that actor Morgan Freeman has taken, and I wish that more people would adopt it. He has eloquently stated, on many occasions, that one way to stop being obsessed with race is to stop talking about it.

Obsessed with Race

A large faction within the U.S. – Democrats — are populated by subgroups with overlapping views: liberals, progressives, socialists, and Marxists. They want to keep race at the forefront of all public discourse. In their eyes, virtually any topic that you can address – the total eclipse in April, for example – has some underlying racial component embedded within it. Not all topics have a racial component, but that is what they propagate on a daily basis.

What’s more, people on the Left are on the ever-present lookout for anything which they regard as a transgression when others are referring to minorities. They particularly are focused on anything that a Conservative says, at any time, even if it was 30 or 40 years ago, that to the Left some way represents a slight or lack of respect for minorities, particularly Black Americans.

For these ‘race police’ it’s like a game. They are delighted when they are able to find something, anything, that they can aggrandize to the hilt, have the mainstream media pick up, and whip into a social and cultural frenzy.

This bit of historical news might be hard to recall, but four years before Barack Obama was elected U.S. president, the topic of race was less contentious. A Gallup Poll revealed that 74% White Americans and 68% of Black Americans felt that race relations in the country were good. 19 years later, 43% of White people and 33% of Black people reported the same.

If we could only return to those pre-Obama days when Americans, of all types, had some common goals and shared the same types of aspirations such as succeeding in their professions, building a strong financial base for their family, and raising happy and healthy children.

Divided Forever?

Alas, with so many on the Left vehemently championing racial division it looks as if we don’t have good prospects, at least for the immediate future, to return to those hallowed, pre-Obama days. As an eternal optimist, however, I believe that one day the clamor will die down, and once again, we will simply all be Americans.

With Representatives Like Kelly Daughtry, We Can Take Back America

Daughtry is a soft-spoken woman who gets things done

Published

on

When President Trump takes office next January 20th, he’s going to need a cadre of strong-willed Congressional representatives. It’s not enough to simply retake the White House, we need the foot soldiers with the unshakeable resolve to restore America.

In North Carolina’s 13th district, one candidate is firmly rooted in the values that made this country great, and will make it great again. Her name is Kelly Daughtry and, quite frankly, the nation needs many others like her.

Raised in rural North Carolina and the daughter of a U.S. veteran, farmer, lawyer, and entrepreneur, Daughtry has been a practicing lawyer for the past 25 years in Johnston County, where she makes her home. She’s been in the trenches and is not skittish about the slings and arrows that come with taking bold, conservative positions for what is right.

Trending on PolitiCrossing.com: What Does the Term African American Mean?

Clear Positions on Vital Issues

Daughtry is exceedingly clear on where she stands and on what will improve the lives of American citizens. She is a vigorous supporter of law enforcement and decries ‘de-fund the police’ movements wherever they arise. She understands that, by and large, the men and women in law enforcement are dedicated, hardworking individuals who, in many instances, put their lives on the line.

Similarly, Daughtry supports the U.S. military and our veterans. She knows that nations around the world with rogue leadership wish to do us great harm, and that we must maintain a strong military at all times. Not coincidentally, a strong military is the best prescription for peace.

On the border issue, Daughtry recognizes that the Biden Administration is firmly committed to swamping our country with illegal aliens. Why? Because the U.S. Census count doesn’t focus on U.S. citizenship, only the number of residents per county and state.

Hence, Democrats can gain a 20-seat advantage in the U.S. House of Representatives by continuing to flood our nation. This ploy is precisely why Biden and company have brought lawsuits against border states seeking to protect themselves.

The drugs, the crime — the murders — and the bursting budgets of towns and states trying to cope with the onslaught of illegals should never have happened in the first place. Daughtry knows what needs to be done, and done immediately.

Reversing Biden’s Reckless Agenda

Daughtry will go to work on restoring our nation, dismantling Joe Biden’s reckless agenda for America. She understands that Biden’s policies towards China in particular, and the bribes he has taken, have been nothing less than devastating for hard-working Americans and for our national security.

Most notably, she is firmly opposed to the Chinese Communist Party and their representatives who are seeking to buy farmland throughout North Carolina as well as every other place in the United States.

Biden’s out-of-control spending has particularly hurt North Carolinians. Farmers have taken the brunt of the punishment. The unending inflation that we’ve faced for 38 months also has dealt a crushing blow to North Carolina small business owners and families in general. One of Daughtry’s first agenda items will be to help steer our country back towards fiscal sanity, which in turn will have a direct impact on the cost of groceries and gasoline.

Americans First

Like President Trump, Daughtry understands the importance of putting Americans first and of safeguarding or voting procedures, elections, and indeed what it means to be an American citizen. Of note, she has no misconceptions about the differences between men and women and will work to stop the malarkey that the Left imposes on us every day, with their “56” types of genders.

Daughtry is a soft-spoken woman and in her quiet way, gets things done. If Donald Trump had an army of Kelly Daughtrys, the country would be on firm footing in relatively short order. She knows what hard-working Americans want and need, and is exactly the type of politician that North Carolina must send to Washington D.C.

It is not an exaggeration to say that in Wake, Harnett, Johnson, and Wayne counties in North Carolina, as well as the entire state and entire country, the 2024 election will be the most important in our lifetimes. This has been said about other elections at other times, but considering the damage that the Democrats have wrought on America, the time is now to reclaim our great nation and, with the likes of Kelly Daughtry, we can.
