Lefty Twitter Explodes After Teen Athlete’s Op Ed About Unfair Transgender Opponents


The following article, Lefty Twitter Explodes After Teen Athlete’s Op Ed About Unfair Transgender Opponents, was first published on Flag And Cross.

The heads of many leftists exploded Saturday after a Connecticut girl had an op ed published in USA Today in which she talked of how unfair it was that she and other natural-born girls were beaten out for track and field scholarships by boys claiming to be transgender girls because of how these biological males over performed in school competitions.

A young woman named Chelsea Mitchell began losing race after race starting back when she was in high school in 2017. Even though she was rated the fastest female runner in the state in the 55-yard-dash she lost nearly a dozen titles because in 2017, the state of Connecticut ruled that biological boys claiming to be transgender girls could compete in school sports with biological girls.

In her May 22 op ed, Miss Mitchell told readers that forcing girls to compete against opponents born as boys was simply unfair and is destroying girls’ sports.

Mitchell noted that all her training and physical conditioning often came to naught because her opponents had the advantage. “All I can think about,” she wrote, “is how all my training, everything I’ve done to maximize my performance, might not be enough, simply because there’s a runner on the line with an enormous physical advantage: a male body.”

She added that she has lost one title after another, saying, “time after time, I have lost. I’ve lost four women’s state championship titles, two all-New England awards, and numerous other spots on the podium to male runners. I was bumped to third place in the 55-meter dash in 2019, behind two male runners. With every loss, it gets harder and harder to try again.”

“That’s a devastating experience. It tells me that I’m not good enough; that my body isn’t good enough; and that no matter how hard I work, I am unlikely to succeed, because I’m a woman,” Mitchell insisted.

Mitchell and a few of her female competitors have filed a lawsuit against the state of Connecticut to force the state to dump its transgender-friendly school sports rules to once again make sports fair and re-level the playing field for girls.

It especially hurts girls trying to use sports to help them get a college education. Mitchell added:

But besides the psychological toll of experiencing unfair losses over and over, the CIAC’s policy has more tangible harms for women. It robs girls of the chance to race in front of college scouts who show up for elite metes, and to compete for the scholarships and opportunities that come with college recruitment. I’ll never know how my own college recruitment was impacted by losing those four state championship titles to a male. When colleges looked at my record, they didn’t see the fastest girl in Connecticut. They saw a second- or third-place runner.

These common sense and real-world points fell on deaf ears among many liberals who took to twitter to accuse Miss Mitchell of being a bigot, a religious fanatic, and a hater.

For instance, a transgender activist named Dawn Ennis smeared the young woman from Connecticut and wagged a finger in Mitchell’s face calling her all sorts of names. Typical of many liberals, even as this Ennis character attacks Miss Mitchell for not having compassion, he also engages in a long series of name calling, and attacks on both Mitchell’s character and religion.

Ennis calls Mitchell a liar, calls the girl “transphobic,” says Mitchell and her legal counsel are “extremist Christians” and that they belong to a “hate group,” insists that Mitchell wants the right to “discriminate, is pushing “propaganda and ignorance,” and says that Mitchell is “immoral.” That is a lot of name calling and hate from a purportedly compassionate leftist.

Ennis’s long, hate-filled Twitter thread can be seen starting with the following tweet:

But Ennis is not alone. Many other leftists also went on a binge of hate for Miss Mitchell by calling her names on social media:

Start transgender teams who compete amongst themselves & leave girls & boys sports to them, only FAIR way!!!

Lesley Skellly

It is the only fair way. There are the Invictus for disabled veterans, games for people with disabilities, so why not Trans games. Let them compete against each other, have their own games, that way it will be fair to cis women.
