Parents Furious After Transgender Teen Boy Wins Girls Track Championship
Allis VanPelt trained hard in track during her high school years, hoping to do well enough at the all-state girls’ meet to earn a place on the podium – and possibly an athletic scholarship, and she almost made it.
Allis came in fourth.
What she hadn’t counted on during all that training, in all the competitions, and what her coaches didn’t prepare her for, was that the sprinter who stood in the third-place position was male.
Senior Nattaphon “Ice” Wangyot, a Thai immigrant who came to Alaska two years ago, was born a male, retains the genitalia of a male, has the body structure and muscle mass of a male, but competed in the Alaska State Track Championships and won, as a girl, beating female students, some as young as 14-years of age.
Wangyot stood on the podium, medaling as a girl, in both the 100- and 200-meter dash races, while Allis stood on the sidelines having come in at 4th place, just out of medal status.
Allis didn’t comment, but her mother, Jennifer VanPelt, posted on Facebook about the unfairness of letting the biological male compete against biological females.
“What would you say if this male kept your child from placing on the podium because she isn’t built with the structure of a boy?”
It wasn’t just an outraged parent who commented.
Emma Daniels, who lost to Wangyot, said a male competitor made the playing field uneven.
“I’m glad that this person is comfortable with who they are, but I don’t think it’s competitively completely 100-percent fair.”
The concern, of course, is obvious to all except the liberal promoters of social engineering, as girls bear a disproportionate impact when boys are allowed to physically compete against them.
Women should be concerned that the leveling of the playing field has literally been undone in an effort to allow boys who think they are girls run faster, jump higher, and shoot farther take it away altogether by virtue of simple physiognomy.
