War on Women Alert! Good-bye, Title IX!

War on Women Alert! Good-bye, Title IX!

The lat­est bat­tle in the War on Women comes from Cal­i­for­nia: a 68, 220 lb male Desert Storm vet­eran who is now play­ing women’s col­lege bas­ket­ball. His team­mates are not opposed, but the other teams (and, per­haps, the sixth best player on his team, who no longer starts) are irate. (Hat tip: Stacy McCain, and really Stacy this time, not Smitty dress­ing up as Stacy. Or something.)

This is allowed to hap­pen because Lud­wig was born a man, grew to be 68 and 220 lbs, then had a sex change oper­a­tion a few months ago.

The 95th per­centile in height for women is right around 58, 59. For men, the 95th per­centile is some­where around 62. (Here’s the bimodal dis­tri­b­u­tion; Lud­wig is 203 cm, for the record.)

With­out get­ting too much into the math, let’s just point out the obvi­ous: almost no woman can com­pete ath­let­i­cally against a man. Deb­bie Heald, fea­tured in this month’s Runner’s World, set the women’s world record in the mile (and, IIRC, still has the high school record) in 4 min­utes, 38 sec­onds. (The cur­rent women’s world record is 4:26.) Guys at my high school ran 4:30 miles on a semi-​regular basis.

If you want to ruin women’s ath­let­ics, make us com­pete against men. Like Sarah Palin, I’m a Title IX girl and loved play­ing sports in high school, loved com­pet­ing, and loved win­ning. (I also loved being part of a record-​setting relay team, which would never have hap­pened if men had been part of another relay team.) Ath­letic women under­stand that most of us can’t com­pete against rea­son­ably strong men, and that none of us can com­pete against 68 Desert Storm veterans.

So, pro­gres­sives: which is more impor­tant, women’s ath­let­ics or fight­ing ‘trans­pho­bia’? Because this ‘trans­sex­ual rights’ thing is a war on women if I’ve ever seen one.

Why not a sen­si­ble solu­tion: unless you are unequiv­o­cally female, play on the men’s team? Hor­mones ridicu­lously out of whack? Men’s team. Have y-​chromosomes in every cell in your body? Men’s team. Let us do our own thing and suc­ceed as we are capa­ble of suc­ceed­ing — by com­pet­ing against each other and not men.

Update: Evil Blog­ger Lady writes about a man, with intact gen­i­tals, who exposed him­self to women in a sauna. How that is not some form of sex­ual harass­ment, inde­cent expo­sure, or sex­ual assault is beyond me.

The latest battle in the War on Women comes from California: a 6’8, 220 lb male Desert Storm veteran who is now playing women’s college basketball.  His teammates are not opposed, but the other teams (and, perhaps, the sixth best player on his team, who no longer starts) are irate. (Hat tip: Stacy McCain, and really Stacy this time, not Smitty dressing up as Stacy. Or something.)

This is allowed to happen because Ludwig was born a man, grew to be 6’8 and 220 lbs, then had a sex change operation a few months ago.

The 95th percentile in height for women is right around 5’8, 5’9. For men, the 95th percentile is somewhere around 6’2.   (Here’s the bimodal distribution; Ludwig is 203 cm, for the record.)

Without getting too much into the math, let’s just point out the obvious: almost no woman can compete athletically against a man.  Debbie Heald, featured in this month’s Runner’s World, set the women’s world record in the mile (and, IIRC, still has the high school record) in 4 minutes, 38 seconds. (The current women’s world record is 4:26.)  Guys at my high school ran 4:30 miles on a semi-regular basis.

If you want to ruin women’s athletics, make us compete against men.  Like Sarah Palin, I’m a Title IX girl and loved playing sports in high school, loved competing, and loved winning.  (I also loved being part of a record-setting relay team, which would never have happened if men had been part of another relay team.)  Athletic women understand that most of us can’t compete against reasonably strong men, and that none of us can compete against 6’8 Desert Storm veterans.

So, progressives: which is more important, women’s athletics or fighting ‘transphobia’? Because this ‘transsexual rights’ thing is a war on women if I’ve ever seen one.

Why not a sensible solution: unless you are unequivocally female, play on the men’s team?  Hormones ridiculously out of whack? Men’s team.  Have y-chromosomes in every cell in your body? Men’s team.  Let us do our own thing and succeed as we are capable of succeeding – by competing against each other and not men.

Update: Evil Blogger Lady writes about a man, with intact genitals, who exposed himself to women in a sauna.  How that is not some form of sexual harassment, indecent exposure, or sexual assault is beyond me.
