Have you ever watched a movie where the good guy got framed for what the bad guy did and you felt morally indignant, desperate to see justice done and the horrible wrongs made right? That's how I feel when I see social madness in our country, wondering, How can this go on in front of our eyes? What kind of craziness is this?

Let me give you several cases in point.

In Texas, a 17-year-old girl who identifies as a boy is taking testosterone supplements as she begins to "transition" to being male. (She currently identifies as a boy named "Mack" Beggs and is referred to as "he" in a relevant article about her.) She is in the news because she wrestles on the girls' team and just won a tournament when her opponent in the finals forfeited because the other girl's parents protested the match.

And they had every reason to protest.

Beggs is taking performance-enhancing drugs, and in a physically taxing sport like wrestling, the differences are all the more tangible. That's why the lawsuit brought by the parents of another female wrestler urged the governing body to suspend Beggs "because of the use of the steroid. The suit claims that allowing the wrestler to compete while using testosterone exposes other athletes to 'imminent threat of bodily harm.'"

This is not rocket science, and Beggs would not be allowed to compete in a college-level or Olympic or professional match while on steroids. (Is this why Beggs is undefeated this season?)

Steroids and other performance enhancing drugs are banned for logical, obvious reasons, yet logic seems to stop at the door when it comes to transgender activism. read more
