Idk who TF told you girls can't compete with boys... And also who taught you about how it works to be trans. A division for those who identify as transgender would be complete bullshit, since that would force boys to wrestle girls as this whole thread was complaining about in the first place. |
Next up, "stop with the assigned bull shit". I'm a cisgender woman, and would still be assigned female at birth, just as a trans man would be.
To continue, many highschool athletes who identify as transgender girls or women have taken hormone blockers to pause the changes they would undergo during puberty, allowing their muscle mass to be very similar to cis women like myself. In fact, I happen to have more muscle mass than the trans women I have had the opportunity to wrestle during my high school career.
Finally, THESE ARE HIGH SCHOOL SPORTS. NOT PROFESSIONAL. Even though some of the people on this message board clearly seem to think otherwise. High school sports are much more intended to be a learning and growing experience for the athletes who choose to participate. I am lucky enough to be a 4 year letter winner in all 3 of my high school sports, but I know plenty of people who just come out for the experience, not to become a top level athlete. Obviously there are exceptions, but based on how few Washington athletes wrestle in college, I'm gonna guess that the vast majority isn't completely insane about who they're having to wrestle.
The most important thing in high school athletics is that they are inclusive and a safe space for all who want to participate. Contrary to the popular belief of this message board, there are more people who just wrestle to wrestle than those who are interested in pursuing it for extended periods of time.
P.S. I know a hell of a lot of cis women wrestling in this state who could easily crush more than half of the boys in this state, so trans women aren't really the demon y'all try to make them out to be
