Abigail Shrier was on the Dennis Prager Show this week and the discussion surrounded her article in Newsweek and her new book:
- Who Has the Right to Be Called a Girl? (NEWSWEEK)
- Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters (REGNERY)
Here is a taste of the article:
The physical advantages conferred during male puberty are massive and unbridgeable, especially in sprinting and contests of strength. To take just one example cited in the complaint, the fastest female sprinter in the world is American runner Allyson Felix. Her lifetime best for the 400-meter run is remarkable—just 49.26 seconds. But based on 2018 data, nearly three hundred high school boys in the U.S. alone could beat it. When the two boy runners now besting Connecticut girls identified as male, they had no notable achievements in sprinting; now, identifying as female and competing against girls, they have taken first place in 13 out of 14 state championship events.
(On Twitter, I suggest keeping an eye on the hashtag #fairplay)
Some other sources worth a mention:

- TUCKER CARLSON: Biological Boys Compete In Women’s Sports? | Tucker Carlson Interview With Selina Soule (YOUTUBE)
Just a note on the Tucker video above: The Alliance Defending Freedom attorney noted that one of the transgender athletes (male in otherwords) now holds ten records in the state previously held by other girls over a twenty year period.
Girls shouldn’t be forced to compete against males. Male athletes have numerous unfair physical advantages, and policies that allow males in female athletics will inevitable lead to girls becoming spectators in their own sports. That is why Idaho passed the Fairness in Women’s Sports Act in March. But now, the ACLU has filed suit against Idaho in an effort to remove those protections.
