Transgender Wrestler Advances To State Championship Semi-Finals
The transgender teen is being forced to compete with girls.
Mack Beggs, a junior at Euless Trinity High School in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, won a regional championship after two opposing wrestlers forfeited, apparently over concerns that Beggs has an unfair advantage because of testosterone treatments that are part of the transition.
On Saturday, he beat Chelsea Sanchez 12-2 to earn the championship.
"I wouldn't be here today if it weren't for my teammates", Beggs said. That's honestly what the spotlight should have been on is my teammates. Ironically, though, the state won't allow it. Texas rules provide that an athlete must be classified according to his/her biological gender, probably to avert the very scenario Carlson imagined of boys identifying as girls in order to compete against physically inferior opponents.

Since attempting to bar Beggs from competing, Baudhuin - whose daughter wrestles with the 17-year-old in a different weight class and disapproved of the suit - has come to have a change of heart.
A lawsuit was filed by a fellow high school wrestler's parent trying to get Beggs barred from competing but a hearing wasn't able to be held before the tournament took place. "It's because she's taking [a testosterone] enhancement". But state superintendents a year ago approved - by a resounding 95 percent - a policy that requires an athlete to compete with the gender on his or her birth certificate.
"[My daughter] had wrestled Mack a year ago". A boy who says he's a girl because he wants to wrestle girls would have to be allowed to wrestle girls. "I feel so sick and disgusted by the discrimination not by the kids, the PARENTS AND COACHES", he wrote on Facebook. "When you're using a drug and you're 10 times stronger than the person you're wrestling because of that drug that (shouldn't be) allowed".
I'll leave it to people who know the sport better than I do to confirm or debunk that. The finals are scheduled for 4:45 p.m. Saturday.
