Title IX is part of the Education Amendments Act of 1972. Feminists and their supporters have used Title IX to demand universities fund women’s sports teams so females could have the same opportunities for intercollegiate competition enjoyed by men.

What feminists could not have foreseen is that nearly 50 years later men are benefiting from Title IX and penalizing women at the same time.

Cases in point are June Eastwood and Rachel McKinnon. Both are men who changed their names to improve their chances of winning athletic competitions.

Eastwood is the man who runs on the University of Montana women’s track team. The College Fix reports he was recently named as the NCAA’s Big Sky Conference ‘female athlete of the week’ “after beating San Diego State University’s Jenny Sandoval, who appears to be a biological woman.”

It’s a situation that beggars belief among the sane. RedState concludes, “So sum it up, a man wins a race meant for women, is given recognition and awards meant for women, and no one running the show thought to even mention that Eastwood was a man in the official paperwork. On top of that, they also push a propaganda piece in order to make Eastwood’s arrival on the women’s scene seem uplifting and legitimate.”

This competitive insanity isn’t confined to the U.S. either. McKinnon is another average competitor as a man who’s winning races as a ‘woman.’ The New York Post explains, “Last weekend at the Masters Track Cycling World Championships in Manchester, England, the 37-year-old Canadian first set a world record in qualifying for the 35-39 age category 200-meter sprint, then went on to defend [his] title in the finals.”

His genuine female competitors have decided it’s time to tell the truth regarding ‘trans–women.’ The Post quotes Jennifer Wagner-Assali, who took third behind McKinnon last year, “It was an unfair race, and I accepted that when I pinned on the number, and I tried to do my best to overcome the unfairness. I do feel that hard-fought freedoms for women’s sport are being eroded.”

Former cycling champion Victoria Hood concurred, “It is not complicated. The science is there and it says that it is unfair. The male body, which has been through male puberty, still retains its advantage; that doesn’t go away. I have sympathy with them. They have the right to do sport but not a right to go into any category they want.”

The science supports Hood and not McKinnon. According to the Post, “[The] Karolinksa Institute in Sweden conducted research that suggested testosterone suppression for transgender women has little effect on reducing muscle strength.”

Meaning they have an advantage over women. That’s why Eastwood and McKinnon were mediocre competitors against fellow men, but are champions competing against women. Unless women and parents take a stand and refuse to allow this perversion of competition to continue the situation will only get worse.

As Wagner-Assali predicts, “If we continue to let this happen, there will be men’s sports and co-ed sports, but there won’t be any women’s sports.”
