No area of modern life is not affected by same-sex marriage. Fairness, equality, and even justice is obscured and twisted in conformity to the demands of the same-sex marriage lobby. Typically, it is not the adults who advocated for same-sex marriage who bear the burden - it is the children of that country.
Two years after legalising same-sex marriage, the US is feeling those effects, especially when it comes to fairness between the two genders. In a US high school, Andraya Yearwood, a male student who “identifies” as a transgender girl, was allowed to to compete in two girls’ events – the 100 and 200-meter dash. Yearwood won both events, to no one’s surprise:
“It feels really good. I’m really happy to win both titles,” Yearwood of Cromwell High School told the Day after winning at the May 30 meet. “I kind of expected it. I’ve always gotten first, so I expected it to some extent. … I’m really proud of it.”
Contrast Yearwood’s joy at winning the two titles to the feelings of those who competed but did not stand a chance against a biological male, and who are beginning to realise that they will never again be given their chance to compete on an even playing field. It can all be summed up by the response of the female runner who came second to Yearwood:
Kate Hall — who last year won the girls 100-meter dash Class M state title as a sophomore — came in second to Yearwood at this year’s 100-meter race and was tearful in the aftermath, the Hartford Courant reported.
“It’s frustrating,” Hall of Stonington High School told the Courant. “But that’s just the way it is now.”
Conscious that despite her frustrations, she was still required to be politically correct, Hall bit her tongue:
After finishing third in the 200 — and watching Yearwood cross the finish line first in that race as well — Hall told the Courant, “I can’t really say what I want to say, but there’s not much I can do about it. You can’t blame anyone.
Tragically, the concept of fairness does not fit with transgender ideology. Thus, in order to appease one biologically-born male who decides he wants to “identify” as a girl, the entire division of girl athletes lose any chance they have of winning a fair-and-square race. Hall is absolutely correct: no one can really comment on whether or not this is fair. There is nothing these girls can say, and there is little that they can do. Will they continue to be motivated to play sport at an elite level, knowing that no matter how hard they try, they are unlikely to win?
Think of the parents, who have to watch their daughters train their hearts out, only to watch their daughter loose out to a transgender athlete at school. How would you feel if that was your daughter?
Same-sex marriage activists call for “equal rights,” yet these girl athletes were denied a chance to compete with fellow athletes on equal footing. The transgender ideology is a fruit of the redefinition of marriage and a true threat to equality. It reduces the sexes into simple “choices” that can be manipulated to give unfair advantages to “transgender” individuals, just as in this case.
These girls have every right to speak out against what these exceptions for “transgender athletes” are doing to their sports. Yet, they will not. As Katie Hall noted ‘that’s just the way it is now’. Political correctness is silencing these young women from speaking out in their own defence. A truly tragic consequence of redefining marriage and the import of gender.
