Female Students File Lawsuit Over Rules That Allow Biological Males to Compete in Women’s Sports
“It’s also frustrating and disheartening to know that they had an unfair advantage against me”
If biological males who live as women win every competition, what is the point of women’s sports?

Female Athletes File Title IX Lawsuit to Reverse Unfair Trans Rules
On Wednesday, three high school girls and their mothers filed a Title IX lawsuit against the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference (CIAC), challenging the rules that allow biological males to compete in women’s high school sports. The lawsuit alleges that CIAC and other education officials violated Title IX of the Civil Rights Act by discriminating against girls and failing to provide effective accommodation to allow girls to compete on a level playing field.
High school senior Chelsea Mitchell, the fastest biological girl in Connecticut who has nonetheless lost four state championships to male competitors who identified as female, told PJ Media what it feels like to train as hard as she can without hope of ever emerging victorious. She joined the lawsuit in order to secure a fair playing field for girls to compete.
“It’s very unfair for me and the other girls to race against biological males. It has inspired me and the other girls to stand up and fight for our right to compete and to have a fair competition,” Mitchell said. She went on to describe the experience of competing against males in women’s sports.
“Lining up against them is very intimidating. It’s also frustrating and disheartening to know that they had an unfair advantage against me,” the track star confided. “I’ve really felt defeated. There really isn’t much more I can do than just run my race every time. Every race I’ve ever run against the biological males, I’ve lost. It’s definitely very defeating. It makes you wonder why you’re continuing to run.”

This is going to be interesting.
The answer to the question of whether allowing Transsexuals to compete violates Title IX should be obvious.
But…should be obvious does not easily predict the outcome of a lawsuit.
Wouldn’t it be fun to have this start in front of a liberal judge who believes gender transcends genetics and have it crawl its way up to the Supreme Court?
Oh, and let’s ask for expedited handling because of the upcoming Olympic Games!
“The answer to the question of whether allowing Transsexuals to compete violates Title IX should be obvious.” Given that Title IX speaks only of “sex” (and does not mention “gender,”) the outcome should indeed be obvious.
But given the Humpty Dumpty** nature of so many of our jurists, a court just might accept the Newspeak definition of “sex,” that sex is gender and gender is sex. Even if/when that means that the subjective (“I feeeeel like a girl!”) trumps the objective reality of male biology.
**”When I use a word,” Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, “it means just what I choose it to mean—neither more nor less.” “The question is,” said Alice, “whether you can make words mean so many different things.” “The question is,” said Humpty Dumpty, “which is to be master—that’s all.”
