Christian Girls’ Basketball Team Forfeits Tournament Game against School with Biological Male



Published:

On Monday, it was reported that a Christian high school girls’ basketball team in Vermont forfeited a game in the fourth round of a state championship tournament when it was discovered that a biological male who identifies as a transgender female was on the opposing team’s roster. Experts are applauding the school’s decision, pointing to the physical dangers that male athletes pose to female athletes as well as the infringement on fair play that is created by allowing males to compete against females.

“We withdrew from the tournament because we believe playing against an opponent with a biological male jeopardizes the fairness of the game and the safety of our players,” said Vicky Fogg, who serves as Head of School at Mid Vermont Christian School (MVCS) in White River Junction. “Allowing biological males to participate in women’s sports sets a bad precedent for the future of women’s sports in general.”

A number of incidents involving the physical injury of female athletes at the hands of male athletes who identify as transgender women....

90 percent of this country, see no problem here. 😢 Sad

Do you have statistics to back up that assertion? I don't believe it's that high of a percentage. We've got to be factual when we make statements like this or we're just as guilty of reporting "fake news" as the MSM. But, you're correct in the belief that ANY seeing this as acceptable is sad. It truly is. 

I'm really proud of them for forfeiting. It takes courage to stand up and be counted! Praise the Lord for those who do!

More like 40 percent, but some area feels like 90 percent.

Actually, according to a NPR poll (not exactly a conservative news outlet) nearly two-thirds of Americans (63%) are opposed to allowing transgender women and girls to compete on teams that align with their gender identity, while 24% overall support that. Of course the preponderance that do support it fall in the Democrat category (46%). Among Republicans only 4% support.

The stat that amazes me is the 7 – 15% of those poled that were “Not familiar with this” issue. What rock are they living under?!

Aside from the socio-political nonsense so prevalent today, I don’t see how any rational person can support this. The Economist came out with an article over two years ago that clearly shows the advantage even teenage boys have over elite women in their respective sports. The article plainly states that even after testosterone suppression treatment the muscle loss incurred is far less than the advantage granted by simply being born a male.
