The few are more worthy than the many? Controversy in Texas state wrestling!

via Heavy.
For the second consecutive year, a transgender wrestler has captured the Texas girls’ Class 6A 110-pound state championship. Mack Beggs capped off another undefeated season on Feb. 24 by defeating Chelsea Sanchez in the title match for the second year in a row.

Beggs was born female, but currently transitioning to male and is taking a low dose of testosterone. He has advocated for his desire to compete against the boys, however state policy says students must compete against the gender listed on their birth certificate.

The senior at Euless Trinity High School near Dallas was greeted to a mix of cheers and boos following his most recent state title victory.

I don't know your stance on the Transgender issue.

I don't care.

What I do know is that allowing a person to live a fiction is one thing.  To FORCE the rest of society to go along is something else.

This smacks of unfairness on so many levels.  The only real solution is for him to be disqualified from competition until he completes his transition.

Meanwhile, for the sake of a few, the many are punished.  In this case its the female wrestlers in Texas.  Who's next?  More importantly is this "new civil right" based in reality or are we forcing fiction on the society and expecting everyone to obey?  Additionally who is the victim here.  The female transitioning to male taking test or the females that are natural?
