Let’s go to make-believe land for a few, and imagine a scenario that involves you competing in a World Championship of your chosen sport.

For those of you men who have competed in any sort of sport, you understand the hard work and sacrifice required to be a competitor, and definitely a champion.

It takes long, grueling hours of practicing, strengthening and conditioning to reach that peak championship level.

And once you do reach that level, the amount of concentration and focus it requires to not crack under pressure. You understand that the coaches, trainers and supporters are counting on you to not only win, but also make them very proud of you.

But What If We Actually Lost Because It Wasn’t Fair?

What if you actually lost because the sports competition wasn’t fair? Let’s say that you’re a top sprinter and have the physical abilities to beat any other man on the planet?

Then suddenly one day you’re told that you’re not going to be racing another man, but instead a cheetah.

At the moment, the fastest man in the world is a Jamaican sprinter known as Usain Bolt. Bolt is also the fastest man in history with a world record time of 9.8 seconds.

I don’t know about you, but I’d say that Usain Bolt is an incredibly fast athlete.

On the other hand, the fastest woman in history is Florence Griffith-Joyner, with a world record time of 10.49. Florence was definitely very fast also, and could outrun any untrained male. But against a top male athlete such as Usain Bolt, she still wouldn’t stand a chance.

The reason for this is that, no matter how hard she trains, a trained male athlete will always have an unfair advantage.

Males not only have a larger bone structure, heart and lungs, they also have a much higher percentage of fast-twitch muscle fibers. These fast-twitch muscle fibers allow them to run faster, jump higher, and lift way more.

Florence competing against Usain Bolt, as impressive as she is, is the equivalent of Usain Bolt trying to outrun the cheetah.

A female cheetah can run approximately 200 meters in 7 seconds, giving a speed of 29 meters per second (or 64 miles per hour).

As fast as Usain Bolt is, the female cheetah would have no problem catching him, and turning him into giant kitty cat food.

So, my question to you is, does this sound like a fair competition to you?

If you answered no, as any logical thinking person would, then you can understand why having males competing against women athletes is ruining sports in general.

Men Competing Against Women Is Ruining Sports

This question is for the guys. How would you feel if you were watching the Super Bowl, and all of a sudden the head coach of your favorite team benched the best player, and brought out a woman instead?

Within seconds this poor woman would not only be tackled, she’d be carried out on a stretcher. This would be a horrific sight. Every guy in the world would not only be upset that his team lost, but also upset that a woman just got hurt badly.

The guy who flattened her would look like a real loser.

Now imagine if half of every team in the entire NFL had woman playing against men. Or if one team had all guys, while the other had all women.

This would cause the game to not be fun to watch any more, because the action would suffer significantly, and it would be obvious which team was going to already lose.

Just like me and every other guy in the United States, and all over the world, you’d  wonder how this was allowed to happen. And why isn’t anyone doing anything about it.

Fortunately, this is just a make-believe world, as we already mentioned at the beginning. Or is it?

Well, I’ve Got Some Bad News For Not Only You Guys, But Women Athletes Also

Our wonderful Democratic-controlled House of Representatives voted 236-173 in favor out the Equality Act.

What this means is that all schools are required to include all male athletes who identify as transgender girls on female sports teams.

But wait, it only gets better. If that wasn’t bad enough, eight Republicans crossed party lines to vote for the bill, which has unanimous Democratic support.

This bill amends the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to make “sexual orientation and gender identity” protected characteristics under the federal anti-discrimination law.

Female athletes, if I were you, I’d not only be very worried, but also furious, because it seems to me that the government sees the wants of these males as more important than your right to fair competition.

Public schools will now be forced to expand female athletics teams to include biological males who identify as transgender girls.

The Government Expects You Women Athletes To Compete Against the Cheetah

Florida Rep. Greg Steube (R) tried to stop this madness by introducing a last-minute amendment to the bill that would have preserved Title IX’s protection of female athletic teams. But the Democrats didn’t want to hear it, and all rejected it.

Every House Democrat but one immediately co-sponsored the legislation. Dan Lipinski, Illinois Rep., was the only Democrat who held out, but later announced his support for the bill following pressure from left-wing activists.

Even Three Former Elite Female Athletes Agree That This Is the End Of Women’s Sports

When Congress enacted Title IX, it was to provide equal opportunities for women in education and sports, not eliminate it, but that’s exactly what’s happening.

Three former elite female athletes, Doriane Coleman, Martina Navratilova and Sanya Richards-Ross, all warned us that the Equality Act would completely destroy women’s sports, causing them to go extinct like the dinosaurs.

Our super intelligent legislation says that it’s now unlawful to differentiate among girls and woman in sports on the basis of sex for any purpose.

This means that a sports team has to welcome a male onto the team with open arms, because they can’t treat a “transgender woman” different from a woman who isn’t considered transgender.

Remember the Cheetah Story That I Told You?

The government doesn’t care that men have an unfair advantage against women in sports. All they care about is pleasing the activists who cry and throw tantrums every time they don’t get their way, and line their pockets with campaign cash.

Putting women in a competition against men is the same as having them race against the cheetah. Men are larger with a much higher fast-twitch muscle percentage, and if anyone can find studies proving otherwise, please feel free to share it.

Women being forced to compete against men will cause women to lose all interest in sports, because they aren’t going to have a chance to win the championships that they work so hard for, and sacrifice so much for.

Yet, some live in a fantasy land, such as House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler, a Democrat from New York who insists that the bill won’t put female athletes at a disadvantage.

My question to him would be, can you prove that it won’t? Or maybe better yet. We should make him race (run away from) a cheetah that will turn him into a small snack, so that we can get someone in office who has a little common sense.

And if the bad condition that New York State is in is any indication of how ridiculous our politicians are, we’re all I deep trouble.
