California's transgender law allows male high schooler to make girls' softball team
foxnews.com ^ | 02/14/2014 | Perry Chiaramonte

A California high school student who believes he is a girl trapped in a boy's body just made the girls' softball team.

Pat Cordova-Goff, 17, a strapping senior at Azusa High School, in Azusa, an hour east of Los Angeles, can play with and against girls because of a September change in state law went into effect last month. The law requires that, “a pupil be permitted to participate in sex-segregated school programs and activities, including athletic teams and competitions, and use facilities consistent with his or her gender identity, irrespective of the gender listed on the pupil’s records.”

Goff, who is a cheerleader at the school, played freshman baseball when he considered himself a boy. He found out Friday that he made the cut.

He’s probably angling for a full scholarship to play girls softball at UCLA.

So it could wind up with the girls’ softball team being made up of all males, and the boys’ team made up of all females.

Seriously, this is so stupid, it’s funny.

Actually that would resemble an “order” of sorts.

They wouldn’t allow that...

This boy will probably drive girls off the sport team. If you apply Title IX, less girls playing sports will mean boys will also be forced to stop playing sports.

Good way to destroy sports in the country.

Actually,it would more likely end up with the girls’ team and the boys’ team BOTH being made up of all males. The top athletic boys will be playing with other boys, and the boys who didn’t make the cut will also be playing with all boys -— the ones who are willing to call themselves “girls”.

The losers will be actual girls who want to play sports.

Quite a hustle. He didn’t even have to have a peckerectomy; all he had to do was say that he identifies as a girl and, Voila, he gets access to girl’s facilities.

Any girl who quits the team will be labeled “phobic.”

America has descended into madness. This might be one of the more comical examples of it. But madness it is nonetheless.

It’s just a shame these things just only receive smirks nowadays, and life in present-day America does seem to resemble some kind of warped Marx Brothers farce. So it probably merits such reactions on that level. But it really masks how totally corrupted and depraved the country has become, where there are no truths or meanings to anything anymore. A decaying nation.

I’ll tell you where this is going to go, so make a note that you heard it here first. The most underused Title IX scholarship is womens golf. Watch how many boys start getting to use them for schools that need to offset football and other “high priority” sports. The possibilities for thrashing all the “gains” Title IX got women, is about take a hit. You will not see women getting Mens scholarships, but you will see boys/men start taking women’s. After all, a free ride to a college is a free ride.

The whole world has gone completely insane with this crap. There’s two of these “trannies” working as cashiers at Target in Ann Arbor. Then I turn on “Chopped” the other night and one of the four contestants is one of them he/she’s. They keep shoving it in your face more and more and then you start wondering if maybe you’re the one that’s crazy and there’s something wrong with the way you’ve been thinking. And the parents are “pleased” with this crap. God help us.

I thought this stupid law was put on hold while a referendum effort is being launched.

Or did a black-robed tyrant pre-emptively find their petition “unconstitutional” before the fact?

I'm seriously confused. The player in questions seems to be "gender confused" but why does that have to be the case? As I read the law, I think it's just open season.

I picked this jpg off the internet -- I do not know anything about this fine young man. I selected this picture after a simple google search because he looks pretty All-American to me:

Why can't he be on the girls' team? What's to stop him??

Fact is: I can't imagine how any girls are going to make it on the girls team -- and I also can't imagine how Title IX funds will be cut. You got *ahem* confused kids making up the girls team, and the law says that's OK. If I were in HS I would just blatantly take advantage of the stupid law.

So it could wind up with the girls’ softball team being made up of all males, and the boys’ team made up of all females.

Most likely it'll be the best males on the male team and the 2nd string of males will make up the female team leaving most of the girls out of sports altogether. All that fighting to make schools have girl sports was all for nothing.

The division of boys' and girls' teams has always been made in recognition of two physical realities:

1. Boys and girls have different physical capabilities, and if girls want to have serious participation in sports, they need to compete against other girls. (This is similar to there being different weight classes in boxing: you simply can't expect an 118 lb man to box a 200 lb man.)

2. Teenage girls do not want men present when they are dressing and undressing, toileting and showering. It causes sexual tension, and imposing this unbidden on the girls is a form of harassment.

In my view, either one of these would be, by itself, sufficient reason to keep the usual separate status of girls' teams and boys' teams, without exceptions being made for the gender disordered.

Here’s the way to kill “Title IX” which requires the same dollars to be spent on girls’ sports as on boys’ sports. The guys not quite good enough to make the varsity or junior varsity boys teams but who want to play only have to claim their are girls trapped in boys’ bodies and make the girls’ varsity or the girls’ junior varsity teams.
