Up in Canada the crazies run the asylum, not that it is much different down here in these United States. \

A 50-year-old transgender woman has sparked backlash among parents after she competed in a swim meet against teenage girls in Canada.​
Furious parents claim Melody Wiseheart shared a locker room with their young daughters during the Trojan Cup in Barrie, Ontario, which took place between December 1-3 and featured age groups from eight and younger to 16 and older.​
Wiseheart, a professor at York university, attended the competition at the East Bayfield Community Centre and participated in several events, including the women’s 1500m freestyle for athletes 16 and older, where she placed second.​
The parent of one of the children who participated in the meet told the Toronto Sun 'the girls were terrified.'
They claimed parents used towels to setup a makeshift tent to protect the girls that had to change in front of Wiseheart.​

The event was sanctioned by Swimming Canada and Swim Ontario which issued a statement to the Toronto Sun defending Wiseheart's participation.​
In partnership with Swimming Canada, Swim Ontario has a robust system of policies, procedures and rules that support our member clubs in providing a competitive experience that is safe, welcoming and inclusive for all participants, 'Swimming Canada and Swim Ontario believe swimming is for everyone... people of all shapes, sizes, genders, beliefs and backgrounds should have the opportunity to swim to the best of their ability... with the expectation that our registrants treat each other with respect and dignity, and keep our sport environment free from harassment and abuse.'
Wiseheart, formerly Nicholas Cepeda, has reportedly been competing against girls since 2019...​
The story is just the latest source of outrage for young female athletes and their parents who claim it's not fair for them to have to compete against trans women.​
Last month a Seattle high school student spoke to DailyMail.com, denouncing her state's athletic association for allowing a transgender athlete to 'take a girl's spot'.​
The freshman says she and her teammates do not have an issue with with the trans athlete's identity - they just don't want to compete against her.​
Despite widespread fear about speaking up against trans athletes in sports, female athletes have began organizing to fight against what they say is discriminations against women.​
Wiseheart has reportedly been competing against girls since 2019. Her research at York university focuses on aging, children and youth behavioral science

The case has strong echoes of that of Lia Thomas, who last year became the first trans athlete to win an NCAA Division I national championship...​
Sophomore Carter Satterfield said: 'We are calling on the NCAA to protect female athletes and grant us fair sports - in every sport. We are calling on US Swimming to recognize that girls at every level deserve to know they are valuable enough to be given a fair race.'​
'I started swimming competitively when I was seven years old,' junior Susanna Price told the crowd. 'This year has been the first year of my life where swimming has been emotionally draining. Knowing that biological men are allowed to compete in sports has been the most disheartening experience of my life.'

Trans Athlete To Become First Male Recipient Of Women's Division 1 Scholarship

A transgender volleyball player and high school junior from California verbally committed to play for the University of Washington, which could make him the first known male recipient of a women’s Division 1 athletic scholarship.
If the university signs athlete Tate Drageset’s offer next fall, he will take one of 12 National Collegiate Athletic Association DI volleyball scholarships available for women at the school, Reduxx reported Wednesday.
An anonymous source whom Reduxx identified as “the parent of a minor player within the Southern California Volleyball Association (SCVA) community” expressed concerns to the outlet about “the steady escalation of Drageset’s participation in women’s volleyball,” according to the news outlet.
As he got older, it became more obvious that something was off,” the source told Reduxx. “Anytime the subject of [Drageset] would come up EVERY PARENT from any SCVA team already knew about him. Parents look around before they speak in hushed tones. Some will wait to discuss until outside the gym.”
“Everyone is scared of how their child will be treated if they speak up,” according to the parent. “The stealing of positions and opportunities has been infuriating and so sad when you see how it affects the girls. There is no concern for their mental health or safety after being replaced.” . . .

It completely defeats the purpose of having rules for anything, he should have been disqualified for both gender and age. I live in rural farm county in Manitoba and deal at a local small town, 3500ish population, don’t see it in adults, but there is an alarming number of kids mid twenties and under falling into all this gender crap, and many of them were getting into it at an age where they had no sexual urges or even knew what sex was, so obviously were picking this up from someone, a five year old girl doesn’t want to be a lesbian out of the blue. I can only imagine larger centres see a lot more of this.

Everyone that knows me is fully aware that something bad will happen if someone tries to pull this off around my kids, and as parents we need to stand up for our children.

Honestly I believe it is societal contagion. You are correct, they are too young to have these urges. So someone/something is influencing them. They don't even know what they are thinking at pre-pubescent ages but now all of a sudden kids want to make unalterable life choices.
