In the USA, a biological male runner who identifies as a female was named the Big Sky Conference women’s cross country athlete of the week last week, sparking – yet again – a debate over fairness in women’s sports and the collegiate rules that govern transgender athletes.
The University of Montana’s June Eastwood won the honor after finishing second in a field of 204 runners at the Santa Clara Bronco Invitational in Sunnyvale, Calif. It was only the latest impressive finish for Eastwood, who finished first at an Oct. 4 meet and third at a Sept. 21 race. But last year Eastwood was known as Jonathan Eastwood and competed on the Montana men’s cross country and track teams. Eastwood finished seventh in May 2018 in the men’s 1,500-meter run at the conference’s outdoor championship.
Eastwood’s picture and bio as a male athlete is still listed on the athletic department’s website as a former member of the men’s team. Now, though, Eastwood identifies as a female athlete and is listed on the website as June Eastwood and a member of the women’s team.
Eastwood won multiple state titles as a male in high school, according to KULR-TV in Billings, Mont.
Under NCAA rules governing transgender athletes, Eastwood had to sit out one year and undergo testosterone suppression treatments for 12 months in order to compete as a female. Eastwood, though, assumed the NCAA rules would be more defined.
“I thought that the rules would be a little more strict and less vague,” Eastwood told KULR. “I thought there would be some definite numbers that they might be looking for.”
The website LetsRun.com noted there is “no mention of a minimum testosterone level that must be achieved or a minimum level of medication that must be taken” in the NCAA rules. “Contrast that to the International Olympic Committee, which requires that [a male to female] transgender athlete ‘must demonstrate that her total testosterone level in serum has been below 10nmol/L for at least 12 months prior to her first competition,’” the LetsRun.com website said.
Joanna Harper, an expert on transgender athletes and an advisor to the International Olympic Committee, said “there are some weaknesses” in the NCAA policy. Harper is transgender. (ROFL)
What Does A Lesbian Sporting Hero/ine say?
Martina Navratilova, a professional tennis player who came out as a lesbian in 1981, stirred controversy earlier this year when she said male-to-female transgender athletes have unfair advantages.
“Simply reducing hormone levels – the prescription most sports have adopted – does not solve the problem,” Navratilova wrote. “A man builds up muscle and bone density, as well as a greater number of oxygen-carrying red blood cells, from childhood. Training increases the discrepancy. Indeed, if a male were to change gender in such a way as to eliminate any accumulated advantage, he would have to begin hormone treatment before puberty. For me, that is unthinkable.”
BUT this unthinkable step might not necessarily be the case in Britain
On Wednesday, Legal action is being launched against the NHS over the prescribing of drugs to delay puberty. Papers have been lodged at the High Court by a mother and a nurse against the Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust, which runs the UK's only gender-identity development service (Gids).
Lawyers will argue it is illegal to prescribe the drugs, as children cannot give informed consent to the treatment. The Tavistock said it had a "cautious and considered" approach to treatment, and I say, so much so, that Doctors and Nurses have been resigning left, right and centre.
Papers were formally lodged on Wednesday by the lawyers for the complainants.
The Tavistock will have three weeks to submit its response, after which a judge will consider the case and decide on the timings of any hearings. The nurse, Sue Evans, left the Gids more than a decade ago after becoming increasingly concerned teenagers who wanted to transition to a different gender were being given the puberty blockers without adequate assessments and psychological work.
Since then, she says, even younger children are being given the drugs, which block the hormones that lead to puberty-related changes including periods and facial hair.
The number of young people referred to the Gids rose from 678 in 2014-15 to 2,590 in the past year.
Of these 2,590: more than 1,700 wanted to transition to male, 624 wanted to transition to female, most were in their early to mid-teens, 171 were under 10. Yes, that’s right….UNDER 10!
Ms Evans said: "I used to feel concerned it was being given to 16-year-olds. But now, the age limit has been lowered - and children as young as perhaps nine or 10 are being asked to give informed consent to a completely experimental treatment for which the long-term consequences are not known."
The mother, known only as Mrs A, has a 15-year-old with autism who is on the waiting list for treatment at the Gids. She told BBC News her child presents to the outside world as a boy but, while she is happy to allow that, she is extremely concerned about the possibility of drugs that are not fully understood being prescribed.
"I'm worried that they will look at her age and say, 'Well, she still says this is what she wants and therefore we will put her on to a medical pathway,'" Mrs A told BBC News. "And given her communication of what she feels internally is slightly different because of her autism spectrum, I worry that what she says and what she means are often two different things."
Mrs A said her child was too young to really assess the potential impact of puberty blockers on the rest of their life, including such things as fertility.
"As an adolescent, what we think will make us happy is not necessarily what will make us happy," she told BBC News. "It might help us in the short term - but it might not help us in the long term."
A Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust official said: "It is not appropriate for us to comment in detail in advance of any proposed legal proceedings. The Gids is one of the longest-established services of its type in the world with an international reputation for being cautious and considered. Our clinical interventions are laid out in nationally set service specifications. NHS England monitors our service very closely.” Let's hope its more than they did with Harold Shipman.
Back to the College GIRL Athletes in the USA
Frustrated by the insane political correctness that’s allowing men who think they’re women to participate in female sports, a high school athlete is taking matters into her own hands by filing a Civil Rights complaint to remove all transgenders from women’s sports.
Selina Soule has experienced first-hand how allowing biologically male transgenders to compete against real biological women like herself gives these transgender men an unfair athletic advantage. As a result, female athletes like Soule no longer stand a chance at actually winning anything, as transgenders everywhere continue to steal the gold for themselves.
“The first race that I competed against a transgender athlete was during my freshman year,” the high school track athlete revealed during a recent interview, which was made into a short documentary put out by The Scoop. “And once the gun went off, the two transgender athletes took off flying and left all of us girls in the dust.”
“I knew right then and there that some girls would be missing out on great opportunities to succeed and that women could be completely eradicated from their own sports,” she added. “I know that I’m not the only girl who has missed out on opportunities. There are countless other girls who have lost meets and titles and their drive to compete as hard as they can because they know that they will never be good enough to compete against these athletes.”
When will this nonsense stop?
Certainly not in the foreseeable future. The Sexual Alphabet's mighty power in Government and Media is a monstrous machine that continues to roll over humanity. It is unswerving and unrelenting and merciless in its pursuit of Binary destruction and therefore human destruction. Good grief, this ideological construction of anti-human creation is being pushed in primary classrooms throughout the land.
Parents you have a choice, but it has a cost. HOMESCHOOL!
What are puberty blockers?
They are drugs which can pause the development of things like breasts, periods, facial hair and voice breaking
They can be prescribed to children with gender dysphoria who feel their sex at birth doesn't match up with their gender.
This is meant to give them more time to weigh up their options before they go through the physical changes of puberty.
Although puberty blockers are described by the NHS as reversible, Gids acknowledges that their impact on brain development and psychological health is not fully known.
