It happened in Cherokee County, North Carolina
The story I’ve been dreading ever since the Biden Administration started demanding that biological males compete with girls in sports has happened in Cherokee County, North Carolina.
A “transgender” athlete (i.e., a biological male “identifying” as female, complete with all the physical strength advantages of a male that we’re supposed to ignore now) was allowed to play on the Highland High girls’ volleyball team. “She” spiked the ball so hard that it smashed into the forehead of an actual girl on the Hiwassee Dam High team. She suffered severe head and neck injuries, resulting in long-term concussion symptoms, including vision problems. She’s seeing a primary care doctor and a neurologist, but still hasn’t been cleared to play again.
Breitbart reports that “the Cherokee County Board of Education then voted 5-1 to declare a ‘safety issue’ and canceled all games against Highlands High after coach and Cherokee Board Member Joe Wood said he had ‘never seen a hit like this before,’” declaring, “I’ll never put a child in a position to be seriously injured.”
Another board member added, “I think most of the board members also felt like there’s a competitive advantage issue.” Gee, do you think?!
This should come as no surprise to anyone with a functioning brain. The danger to women from “trans” male competitors extends beyond them just taking all the trophies and scholarships. That should’ve been apparent even to the boneheads of this Administration when we saw the stories of “trans” MMA fighters nearly killing their female opponents (here’s one from a year ago.)
And now, we’re seeing it starting to happen in schools, thanks to this Administration putting its genuflection to the LGBTQ donor lobby ahead of women’s rights and safety. Why in the world do women continue to support a Party that claims to be so sensitive that they believe “words are violence” but that allows girls’ sports to be taken over, their private spaces invaded, and their bodies physically assaulted by biological males? Does a female student athlete have to be killed or paralyzed before schools finally stand up and tell the biological science-deniers, “No more of this madness”?
