It was only a matter of time before this would happen.
A young track athlete has made history at an Alaskan high school.
But the history made doesn’t involve shattering the 100 meter dash record.
The young man earned all-state honors in girls’ track and field.
Yes, you read that right.
This is an historic first in Alaska, as he will go down in history as the first male athlete to compete in the girls’ state championships.
In Alaska, each school district decides whether to let boys compete on the girls’ sports teams or not.
According to the Daily Caller, this school district’s policy even allows boys who haven’t completed hormone therapy to compete in girls events:
“For the purposes of gender identification for interscholastic activities, the district will consider the gender identity based on the student’s consistent declaration of gender identify, their actions, attitude, dress and mannerisms.”
A 6’8”, 215 pound male basketball player could all of a sudden declare he “identifies” as a girl and join the girls’ basketball team in Alaska…
… As long as he wears a sports bra, of course.
But the real girls who competed against the male sprinter weren’t so thrilled to be a part of history.
One of the girls told local Alaska CBS affiliate, KTVA, “I’m glad that this person is comfortable with who they are and they’re able to be happy in who they are, but I don’t think it’s competitively completely 100-percent fair.”
Meanwhile another runner told the Alaska Dispatch News, “I don’t know what’s politically correct to say, but in my opinion your gender is what you’re born with.”
“It’s the DNA. Genetically a guy has more muscle mass than a girl, and if he’s racing against a girl, he may have an advantage,” she concluded.
Social conservative groups, such as Alaska Family Action, are fighting back.
Their president, Jim Minnery, organized a protest against forcing teenage girls to compete against male athletes.
“We are here today as a voice from the community to ensure that female athletes are not denied the playing opportunities and scholarships otherwise available to them and to make the playing field even again,” Minnery said, speaking at the protest.
“Allowing students to play on teams of the opposite sex disproportionately impacts female students, who will lose spots on a track, soccer and volleyball teams to male students who identify as female,” he argued.
Alaska is the latest story in the nation’s talk about transgenderism.
Obama recently issued a letter to every school in the nation threatening legal fees if they didn’t open girls’ bathrooms and locker rooms to any male who identifies as a “girl”, and vice-versa.
Prior to that, the nation’s focus was on Target’s bathroom policy change which allows men to use the women’s bathroom, if they so choose.
With this news coming out of Alaska, it’s likely other states will now have male athletes competing in girls’ events too.
At this pace, boys may even be able to qualify for collegiate athletic scholarships in girls’ sports within the next year.
