Pushing Back Against Transanity in the Sports World

Every so often, there is a moment of sanity that pushes back against transgender activism in the sports world, although the reaction to the sane decision is often anything but sane. And so it happened in Australia, where, "A male-female transgender athlete has been blocked from taking part in next year's Australian Rules Football professional women's league, according to the BBC.

"Callum Mouncey, who calls himself 'Hannah', stands 6-foot-2 and weighs [218 pounds]. And wears size 15 shoes, according to his Twitter account."

Did you get that? A biological male, who identifies as a female, will not be able to play for the female branch of Australian Rules Football. As the league explained, it took into consideration "transgender strength, stamina, physique, along with the specific nature of the AFLW."

Good decision! After all, this is not rocket science. Football is a dangerous, physical sport (not just the NFL, but Australian Rules Football too). Just look at some of these collisions and hits in the men's league, as well as these hits and fights in the women's league. Is it fair or safe to allow a 218-pound male to play side by side with these ladies?

Obviously not, and thankfully, this time around, sanity and reality prevailed. But that is not always the case.

In the last few years, a male weightlifter who identifies as a woman has broken records in women's weightlifting, a teenage boy who identifies as a girl has been winning girls' races, and a man who identifies as a woman has mauled female opponents in MMA.

While some have been critical, others have celebrated these accomplishments, which are anything but praiseworthy. What is there to celebrate when a biological male is stronger or faster than a female peer? read more
