Mack was born Mackenzie, but decided she wanted to be a boy. A few years and many testosterone shots later, “Mack” is not a two-time high school girls wrestling champion. Welcome to America.
Mack Beggs had been in this very spot, the pinnacle, 364 days earlier. In the same athletic complex. Beating the same state championship match opponent, Chelsea Sanchez of Katy Morton Ranch.
But if Euless Trinity transgender wrestler Beggs thought his Class 6A 110-pound girls title victory on Saturday would be more universally understood, respected and embraced than last year’s, he was in for disappointment.
A cascade of cheers and boos enveloped Beggs at the end of the match, the last of his high school career. He responded by repeatedly tapping his chest and turning in a circle so that every soul in the Berry Center, pro and con, could see him.
I love how this “journalist” continually praises the tranny title holder, while simultaneously decrying the sexist, intolerant, xenophobic, homophobic, Islamophobic, racist and bigoted fans.
Look, if the Texas school system is going to allow a female (who is now a male) to wrestle girls – despite the obvious strength advantage – that’s on them. But they are giving preferential treatment to one transgender, while placing dozens of female opponents at a distinct advantage.
