This Townhall article by Michael Reagan, “Transgender Madness is Destroying Girls Sports,” presents this as some kind of problem. Exactly what that problem is seems a bit confused.
“It’s not right. It’s not fair,” the article begins. I’m not sure what sports nuts think the purpose of sports is supposed to be, but since life is not fair, it would only seem right that neither should sports be, unless one would prefers to deceive their children about reality?
What does Michael Reagan want to do about the problem? He wants action:
“Where are the fathers who are willing to stand up and fight for their daughters to be able to compete in school sports with other girls?”
I have a question too? Where are the fathers who are willing to stand and fight for all their children to be taught to read, write, think, do math, and learn what they will need to succeed in this world? I thought the purpose of school was the development of the mind. While those worried their daughters’ may not be able to, “play,” at sports (which they will never use as adults), their minds are being completely neglected, or worse, totally destroyed.
If fathers ought to be worried about something, they ought to be worrying about the fact, “most of the victims of sexual abuse in sport are young female athletes;” up to 8% of them. Up to 1.0 percent of 8th graders, 1.2 percent of 10th graders, and 2.3 percent of 12th graders are using anabolic steroids, because of sports. In High School Sports “21 percent of all traumatic brain injuries among children in the United States are associated with participation in sports and recreational activities. Between 2008 and 2015, more than 300 sports-related deaths of young athletes occurred in America alone.”
Any father who supports public-school sponsered sports, especially for girls, is supporting one of government’s most destructive programs that destroys both the minds and bodies of young people for the entertainment of all closet pedophile spectators that enjoy them.
A Hopeful Note
Late in the article Michael Reagan complains, “… in five years there’s liable to be no female sports at all in our public high schools or colleges.”
Of course that will not happen, but if it did, there would be two immediate benefits. The first for the girls, who actually have time and energy to spend studying and learning something of value to the lives. The second for all the tax payers who no longer have to support government school sports programs to provide the little darlings of worried fathers with fun and games at other’s expense.
