For some time now Americans have been tolerant of the transgender movement where people who are dealing with a mental condition believe they are of the gender opposite of what they were biologically born. I’m not openly insulting transgenders, God love them, but clearly, there is something wrong with the mental state of people who do not accept that they are the gender they were born. Can we say that in 2021 without being intentionally offensive?
One thing people have not been too tolerant of is when a transgender person who was born a male identifies as a female and wants to play sports on a girl’s or women’s team. The reason for this is obvious. Males produce a lot more testosterone and therefore are naturally stronger than most females, and it gives them a competitive edge over biologically born females. I saw a meme recently that showed a bicycle race where the rider out front was driving a motorcycle but he identified as a bicyclist. That’s how people see this and it’s very difficult for most folks to gaslight themselves into thinking there is nothing wrong with a male competing against females.
Former NFL player Marcellus Wiley offered up an idea of a separate category for transgender athletes as a way of fixing President Joe Biden’s executive order forcing women to compete in sports against biological males. Many parents feel it was a kick in the teeth by the Woke administration and they feel that their daughters will suffer athletically, many of whom are working toward athletic scholarships to colleges and their stats will absolutely be harmed by this executive order which was done without any consultations with the American people. It was just shoved down their throats with the attitude of “do this or else face consequences.” That’s not promoting unity at all.
Wiley, who retired from football after playing defensive end for a decade with the NFL spreading over four teams took to social media to make a call for a change in athletics.
“As a father of 3 daughters & the husband to a former collegiate athlete, this hits home in a special way It’s time to create a separate transgender category in competition!
Also think it’s time for me to start a podcast bcuz some things need to be discussed in detail! #respect”

The former NFL defensive end included an image of a May 2019 article from World Magazine headlined “Built-in advantage: NCAA hurdler shows how the Equality Act would undermine the very thing it claims to champion.”
The article goes through a timeline for CeCe Telfer, a transgender college athlete who was ranked 200th in 2016, then 390th in 2017 in Division II men’s college athletics, but then transitioned and afterward became a national champion when competing against women, because, well, obviously.
“CeCe (formerly Craig) Telfer of New Hampshire’s Franklin Pierce University won the 400-meter hurdles at the NCAA Division II Outdoor Track and Field Championships on May 25 in Kingsville, Texas. Telfer’s time of 57.53 seconds was more than a full second faster than that of his nearest competitor. A peek at Franklin Pierce’s track and field website says nothing about Telfer competing as a man for his first three college seasons or about his accomplishments during those years. The press release touting the Ravens’ first NCAA individual champion in any sport says nothing about Telfer being transgender, either.”
On day one of the Biden presidency, one of the multitudes of executive orders Biden signed – there were 40 in the first ten days – was “Executive Order on Preventing and Combating Discrimination on the Basis of Gender Identity or Sexual Orientation.” So now it is discrimination to disagree that someone born with a penis is a woman and should be able to compete against biological women. I thought the Democrats were supposed to be the party of science. The science here says if you’re born with a penis you are a male. There is absolutely no science that says otherwise outside of the kooky echo chambers the Woke Supremacy on the Left.
Biden’s executive order, done without consulting Congress at all, says that schools that receive federal funding must allow biological males who wish to identify as females to compete in female sports as females and that there are consequences for schools who do not comply with this clearly unconstitutional executive order that could range from administrative action, which could be anything, and have their federal funding pulled.
“Children should be able to learn without worrying about whether they will be denied access to the restroom, the locker room, or school sports,” the executive order reads. “Discrimination on the basis of gender identity or sexual orientation manifests differently for different individuals, and it often overlaps with other forms of prohibited discrimination, including discrimination on the basis of race or disability.”
What about the female children who should be able to learn without the worry of a biological male being in the same restroom, locker room as them? Do they matter? No, apparently they don’t matter to the Woke Supremacy.
