(PatriotHeadline.com) – The trans madness has finally made its way to the Olympics.
Athlete Megan Youngren will make history by becoming the “first openly transgender athlete” to take part in the United States Olympic marathon trials. Youngren, a 28-year old biological male who identifies as a female, it set to compete in the trials that take place on February 29.
Yahoo Entertainment reported that the athlete, originally from Alaska, first started running to improve health after “transitioning.”
“I’m open to talking about it to people because that’s the only way you make progress on stuff like this,” Youngren said.
The athlete also said she expects to receive criticism for taking part, despite having worked hard to complete a marathon in less than three hours.
“People will try to put it down by saying, ‘That’s too easy because you’re trans.’ But what about the 500 other women who will qualify,” Youngren said.
“There’s probably someone with the exact same story. I trained hard. I got lucky. I dodged injuries. I raced a lot, and it worked out for me. That’s the story for a lot of other people, too,” she added.
Youngren did not account, however, for the major biological differences between men and women; namely, a difference in muscles mass and strength.
Despite this, Youngren believes she has “done everything by the book.”
In order to qualify, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) requires that a female athlete (or a male-to-female transgender participant) must have testosterone levels below 10 nanomoles per liter for at least a year before the competition takes place.
In an attempt to at least keep things as fair as possible, the IOC is reportedly looking at making lowering that requirement to 5 nanomoles per liter.
However, the presence of testosterone does not change much of the physical differences between men and women, making the competition unfair for biological females who may never be able to reach the same level of athletic ability as some men.
The news comes as three young female athletes file a lawsuit against the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference which has put girls at a disadvantage by allowing males to compete in their races.
This trend of allowing men to compete in women’s sports, to use women’s bathrooms, and to even serve time in women’s prisons, doesn’t seem to be derailing.
It’s just getting worse.
