We live in a topsy-turvy, upside-down society where individuals are not only permitted to have a sex change procedure, but are encourage too as well! While the phenomenon is not new, changes in law over the past decade have suddenly brought the issue to the forefront.

Recently, tennis star, Dr. Renee Richard, came out as transgender along with Olympic decathlon champion, Bruce Jenner, now known as Caitlyn Jenner. Lana Lawless is pressing for acceptance in women’s golf.

As a result, we are seeing a wave of male athletes from the Olympics down to sports at the high school and community league level crusading to be allowed as a transgendered “girls” to compete against regular female athletes.

Numerous lawsuits are being filed. Sixteen states have passed legislation and House Democrats have introduced a bill making it law for transgenders to compete on the team of their choice!

Common sense dictates that by just saying, “I’m a girl,” taking hormone shots, and even having a surgical procedure, cannot change what nature created! DNA is the deciding authority! Authorities across this country must stop this nonsense! Boys should not and cannot compete fairly with girls! God created males more masculine than females.

There should be an international law that states competing athletes MUST take a DNA test and compete in the gender indicated by DNA. It’s just that simple! There are some things a liberal mindset cannot change-including common sense!
