We have been awash recently with stories of "transgender" athletes making complete hash of athletic competition. Boys are being allowed now to wrestle against girls and compete against them in track and weightlifting. A biological male competing in women's track and field was just crowned the NCAA's first transvestite national champion in track and field.

Female high school athletes, now repeatedly shoved aside by male competitors, are experiencing the sad and unjust reality that when they get in the starting blocks, if there are two males in the race, they are running for third place. Winning is simply out of the question. They are rapidly being forced to watch their own events from the stands.

One organization that is standing against this brain-straining insanity is the USA Powerlifting federation (USAPL). Its president, Larry Maile, has been forced to deal with the reality that the Talking Snake Media is not interested in their efforts to protect a level playing field for female lifters. Instead, media coverage almost universally lauds the transvestite males who trounce their female competition.

Maile is a military veteran and a clinical and forensic psychologist. He has been competing at a high level in weightlifting for over 40 years, won a world championship in 2000, and has coached both the women's national and junior national teams. In other words, he has a vested interest in the outcome of this debacle and knows what he is talking about.

The federation's position from jump street has been simple, straightforward, and scientifically supported: in the interest of fair competition, males are not allowed to compete against females under their auspices. This is for the biological reason that "powerlifters who have gone through male puberty have an overwhelming advantage over those who have not."

Recently, transvestite and biological male Mary Gregory set world records in the women's squat, women's bench press, and women's deadlift. And he's unapologetically proud of the fact that, rhetorically speaking, he's beating up on girls.

Sharron Davies swam in the Olympics for the United Kingdom. She tweeted about how grossly unjust all this is. "This is a trans woman a male body with male physiology setting a world record & winning a woman's event in America in powerlifting. A woman with female biology cannot compete. It's a pointless unfair playing field."

What USA Powerlifting discovered is that the advantage a male picks up by going through puberty cannot be mitigated by testosterone suppressors. A nine-member panel of medical and statistical experts concluded that "biological men have a permanent advantage in terms of muscle mass and power, higher bone mineral content and bone density, and larger nerve cells and signal size." None of these things, you will note, have a single thing to do with hatred, bigotry, transphobia, or discrimination of any kind.

All this gives men a 46 percent to 64 percent strength advantage over women. Testosterone blockers at the most reduce strength by about 10 percent. The panel's conclusion: "The differences [between biological men and women] are so significant that an immutable advantage is conferred in powerlifting by being male, even for a brief amount of time through puberty."

Many elite lifters support USA Powerlifting's ban on men competing in women's events, but these big, burly, muscle-bound guys are afraid to say anything for fear of what the toxic PC environment will do to their careers and reputations. It's odd that after all the effort to get performance enhancing drugs out of sports like baseball (think Mark Maguire) and cycling (Lance Armstrong), we now lionize those males who use drugs to squash female competition.

The Pledge of Allegiance was formally and legally adopted in its present form by Congress in 1954. In it, we as citizens express our solemn commitment to create a society in which there is "liberty and justice for all." This means that allowing men to compete in women's athletics is not only stupid and senseless, it's un-American to boot.
