My daughter, as a senior on a high school girls basketball team, enjoyed a very successful season last year, given that there were eight seniors. These girls played many hours together both during and off-season. On a lark, they spent a practice scrimmaging the boys’ freshman basketball team. According to my daughter, the boys destroyed her team; it wasn’t even close. Such is the lopsided nature of our birth sex.
The consequences of allowing trannys into girls’ sports are far-reaching in many respects.
The minute one joins a girls’ team, the impact is immediate. Many on the team are likely to quit. After all, who wants to participate where abilities are so lopsided? Other teams in the league are likely to not participate against a tranny team. Rather, they would just forfeit than be involved with a charade of “women’s” sports. At this point, the league is in jeopardy and collapse is likely.
In America, sports are very important, and the desire to compete will not be denied. At the first hint of this sort of inclusion, players and parents will pivot to private, club sports. In our area, club sports exist and compete for players with public schools. Parents with means will not be denied, even if it means they have to move from community to community or commute significant distances. By the way, how many club sports organizations exist in minority communities? The loss of a public sports league disproportionately affects the poor and minorities.
Another group affected are the coaches. Coach Ash and his crew, like many, many coaches, spend tremendous hours, emotion, and opportunities to guide these young women. As women’s public school sports collapse, these people will walk away and they ain’t coming back. One does not have their passion trampled and discarded without feeling sullied. Returning to public schools or any sort of public service is unlikely. The loss of these invisible public servants is huge.
Sports used to be a distraction from life’s burdens, a place where concerns could be put aside and one could participate in the simple joys of life. Public school sports fit that very well. Our government’s failure to maintain this distraction will be replaced by the private sector. It will just take some time to get there.
