From the Sidelines


During the 1998 Australian Open, Serena and Venus Williams took part in an exhibition aptly named “the Battle of the Sexes”.  The event came about after the Americans, then teenagers, declared in the ATP office that they could beat any male outside of the top 200. Karsten Braasch, took up the challenge after he had already lost his singles and doubles matches, and was ranked number 203 in the world.

The German, who had never won an ATP event, eventually made it to number 38 in the world.  To make a long story short, he destroyed both ladies.  He beat Serena 6-1, and Venus 6-2, at 54 years old, and according to some reports, had played golf that morning before the match!  Just recently, Serena was asked about playing one of the top ranked men’s players, she laughed and stated she would be destroyed.

The question now is why are women so happy about having men compete in women’s sports? We are seeing the results now almost every day where transgender men, who can’t compete in men’s events, now declare they are women and go play in women’s sports and dominate.

Megan Rapinoe, the lady soccer player, is one of several women petitioning for a Title IX change to allow men to compete in women’s sports.  What is going on here? Why would women, who for decades now have talked about equality and women’s rights, and who claim they don’t need men, now are promoting men in their competitions?

Recently, at the Western Canadian Powerlifting Association, a man, Avi Silverberg, had seen enough of biological males compete against women. He decided to “self-identify” himself as a woman and shattered the record at a recent meet in Alberta. Anne Andres, a biological male in the 84+ kilogram category, and record holder, has won 8 of 9 competitions since he “became” a woman.

Ms. Andres was present to watch Avi break his record. Avi benched 370 pounds, almost 100 pounds more than Andres!  The men’s overall world record is 1,320 pounds, the women’s overall world record is 605 pounds, less than half of the men’s record.  Doesn’t everyone see the absurdity of all of this?  Why then, haven’t more women’s sanctioning bodies decried this?

It is making a mockery of women’s sports. Why are the so-called feminists allowing the people, men, whom they have screamed against since the 70’s, seem to be for all of this? It is the most ridiculous thing I have ever seen.  I don’t know if you have noticed, but the people who are totally against all of this are men! Why on earth are the women’s sanctioning events allowing this? I don’t know for sure, but I have a theory.

I am really gonna step in it here, but if someone has a better explanation, let me know.  Here goes: I think the women who are for this see this as a chance to compete with the scourge of their existence, men.  If they can make themselves believe, and I think they have, that a man, who walks into their competitions, says “I AM WOMAN”, and goes on and breaks records or wins their events better than anyone of them, they see it as getting closer to beating men.

Even though it is a man (you can’t fight biology in mammals!) who is really making a mockery of them. They can claim, look how good we are getting against these evil tyrants called men (who we don’t need anyway!)  That is the best I can come up with. I know, it seems ludicrous, but what other explanation is there?

I know in the Columbus Statehouse there is a bill to ban all men from ladies sports.  I don’t know if it is passed yet, but our Representative Jena Powell, was one of the original authors of the bill.  Thank God, she sees the absurdity of all this.  I am sure it will pass, if it already hasn’t.  I would hate to see women’s sports not even matter anymore, which is where we are headed.

For those of you with daughters, nieces, and female cousins, I feel sorry for you if that happens.  I know in Darke County, everybody is proud of the achievements of our young ladies, who work just as hard as men to be excellent.  I would hate to see that destroyed by a “Lady” who really isn’t one.

Let’s stop this nonsense and let women have their rightful place in athletics, and other ventures, where they can excel on their own by being who they are, not what somebody pretending to be them thinks they are.  That’s the way I see it, from the sidelines!
