A flood of controversy has stirred over in the Alaska high school women’s track and field community over the last week. After smoking girls and leaving her female competition in the dust throughout the season, a male-to-female transgender student received all-state honors. Senior Nattaphon “Ice” Wangyot from Haines High School finished 5th in the 100 meter dash and 3rd in the 200 meter dash during the state championship meet.
“I don’t know what’s politically correct to say, but in my opinion your gender is what you’re born with” said Peyton Young, another competitor at the meet, in a comment to Alaska Dispatch News. “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.”
Sounds like someone’s just a little butthurt over losing. Sure, it’s a fact that she may genetically be leaner, more muscular, and prone to be overall faster, but pointing that out makes you an ignorant asshole in society’s eyes. Get with the times. Plus she’s also still got a hangdown in those shorts. Seems like that could be a bit of an aerodynamic disadvantage. I mean, she did lose to six other chicks after all. I can’t stress that enough. She lost. To a half dozen girls. So maybe be a little more tolerant of other people’s life choices and step your game up, Peyton.
In all seriousness, I can’t wait for more people to expose this ridiculous loophole and have no one call them out for it in fear of being called a bigot. Having trouble making the JV basketball squad? Become Juwanna Mann, identify as a broad, and become the leading scorer on women’s varsity.
This is where we’re at, guys. There’s no putting that toothpaste back in the tube..
