Biological Male Places in Girls’ High Jump at Boston National Meet

A biological male places in Boston girls' track meet, undermining and sidelining the hard work of female athletes.

In the latest chapter of the ongoing saga that’s shredding the very fabric of fairness in high school athletics, a biological male swaggered into 10th place in the girls’ high jump at a national indoor track meet in Boston, delivering yet another blow to female athletes already fighting an uphill battle for recognition and respect in their sport.

Lizzy Cohen Bidwell, who was born as Lucas before the name change, strutted out of Connecticut and into the national spotlight, having already trampled over the competition in the girls’ high jump at a regional showdown. Bidwell was paradoxically counted among six “female” athletes representing the state on March 10 in the high jump at the New Balance Nationals Indoor meet, despite the glaring biological advantage.

Yet, in a boys’ competition, Bidwell’s efforts would barely raise an eyebrow, falling short of the qualifying mark, a stark illustration of the physical disparities being conveniently ignored to accommodate the gender identity narrative. The transformation of Bidwell from Lucas to Lizzy does nothing to tackle the root issue here: the systemic sidelining and undermining of female athletes in favor of a politically correct agenda that places ideological beliefs over biological realities.

Bidwell is just one of many examples of allowing biological males to compete with biological females, not only presenting an absurd physical advantage during the competition but also entering the issue of males in female locker rooms. Riley Gaines’s experience with Lia Thomas in the locker room is a poignant example of this. 

Connecticut’s brazen disregard for the integrity of women’s sports has drawn fierce criticism, and rightfully so. Connecticut is just one of many states participating in the lunacy of allowing young men to hijack records, positions, and the very dignity of female athletes. Coaches, officials, and parents complicit must urgently rethink their participation in this charade.

The relentless march of biological males into female sports categories is not just an affront to fairness; it’s a full-scale assault on the integrity of women’s athletics, robbing young women of their hard-earned victories and casting a long, ominous shadow over the sanctity of competition. This battle transcends the arenas, courts, and tracks; it’s a struggle for the preservation of meritocracy and the safeguarding of spaces designed to empower and celebrate female athletes. 

The normalization of such profound unfairness must be met with resolute opposition, lest we concede the very principles that sports are meant to uphold. This isn’t merely a debate over rules and regulations; it’s a fight for the soul of fairness, challenging us to stand up for what is right and just in the face of growing ideological pressure.
