They were born male, with a set of XY Chromosomes, but now they are blowing the competition away. Two transgender M2F competitors won a state track and field competition, placing first and second. Now the mothers of the girls who lost are saying their bodies gave them an unfair advantage against the other female competitors.
On June 4, the CIAC held State Open track and field competitions where Terry Miller and Andraya Yearwood, both transgender males, competed in the female division and took top honors.
Miller set a new state records in the 100-meter dash.
Yearwood secured second place in the 100-meter dash.

“I think it’s unfair to the girls who work really hard to do well and qualify for Open and New Englands,” said sophomore Selina Soule who finished in sixth place.
“These girls, they’re just coming in and beating everyone,” the 6th place finisher added. “I have no problem with them wanting to be a girl.”
Bianca Stanescu, who is Soule’s mom, said since there is no transgender consideration when it comes to “math and science and chorus” it isn’t fair for sports.
We at 8Runner understand though that its probably better that females are replaced my confused men in all their competitions going forward. Fairness and all.
“Sports are set up for fairness,” she said. “Biologically male and female are different.”
“The great majority is being sacrificed for the minority.”
Two petitions calling for the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference to amend the rules that prohibit gender mixing, have been launched.
..wait.. huh?? I thought everybody was cool with this stuff.
There are some people who applaud the transgender teens though.
‘To be honest, I think it’s great they get a chance to compete and as long as they’re happy, I guess, there’s not that much I can do,” said Bridget Lalonde, a student at RHAM High School who finished third.
..see.. there’s nothing you can do.
“The rules are the rules. The only competition is the clock. You can only run as fast as you can,”
..see.. rules are rules.
She IS just a woman after all.
