The Big Sky Conference has named a transgender athlete as its female cross country runner of the week.
The mind boggles… But apparently even after having raced as a man for three years, he still gets beat by some of the women. Talk about a loser… And the Big Sky conference is really the loser here. What little credibility they had is now out the window, IMHO.

And then there is the whole McKinnon kerfuffle in England…
Rachel McKinnon, a transgender cyclist who is biologically male, won a women’s world championship at the Masters Track Cycling World Championships in Manchester, England, on Saturday.
A Canadian philosophy professor, McKinnon also set a women’s world record in the qualifying race, the BBC reported.
McKinnon has repeatedly refused to admit that being a male prior to ‘transitioning’ has given ‘her’ any advantage, even in the face of scientific evidence.

The only apparent way to handle these are that any records a trans sets will be marked with an asterisk, much like other ‘questionable’ records have been over the years. I truly feel sorry for those young ladies who have worked their tails off to compete at the higher levels, only to have s**tbirds like this swoop in and take over various sports.
Apparently in some locations there has been pushback, in the form of lawsuits to disallow participation. There is also an ongoing issue with measuring Low T continually throughout the competitive season.
Maybe they need another class of competitors… Trans… That way they have some competition against equals.
