Connecticut: Transgender athletes top girls track championship, Dennis Prager labels them ‘narcissists’

The stark gender differences between boys and girls was again on display as two transgender athletes crushed the competition in the 55-meter dash in Connecticut’s state track championships. Terry Miller of Bloomfield High and Andraya Yearwood of Cromwell High recently finished first and second, with Miller breaking the state record.

Headlines have been flooded with criticism and support for the pair, some believing the two have an unfair advantage over the other competitors.

One runner, Selina Soule, said, “We all know the outcome of the race before it even starts; it’s demoralizing.” Then she added, “I fully support and am happy for these athletes for being true to themselves. They should have the right to express themselves in school, but athletics have always had extra rules to keep the competition fair.”

“I have learned a lot about myself and about other people through this transition. I always try to focus most on all of the positive encouragement that I have received from family, friends, and supporters,” Yearwood said. “I use the negativity to fuel myself to run faster.”

Connecticut is one of seventeen states that allow athletes to compete based on their gender identity rather than their biological sex.

In the case the Connecticut Association of Schools-Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference, they are following the state’s anti-discrimination policy. Their executive director, Glenn Lungarini, said, “This is about someone’s right to compete. I don’t think this is that different from other classes of people, who, in the not too distant past, were not allowed to compete. I think it’s going to take education and understanding to get to that point on this issue.”

In Connecticut, some parents are arguing that those competing with girls should have to meet certain hormone standards, but Lungarini said it is not possible for the state’s governing organization to perform that kind of testing. Instead, they allow schools to inform them of which athletes identify as which gender.

“I can’t believe they are not embarrassed. It’s astonishing to me that they are not embarrassed,” radio host Dennis Prager said on this show, pointing the advantage of the male body, calling them narcissists.

“I think you are a narcissist, an extreme version of it. Leftism cultivates narcissism. ‘How I feel’ is all that matters…The right represents standards, the left represents feelings…feelings make us human, but feelings are not our guide.”
