Who’s the grownup here? Who are the sane people here? The people who made the decision to protect their young girls from playing against a male or the people who banned the school from all sporting events? Who are the sane ones? The ones that say a boy is a boy no matter what they say or demand everyone else conform to the wishes of a mentally ill child?

We all know the answers to these questions.

I remember a few years ago my daughter was in a summer league. A girl’s summer league. This other team clearly had a little boy playing for them. Let me tell you something, the only one running like a girl on that court was the boy pretending to be a girl. He ran with his hands up.

So the boy began scoring. A lot. One of the girls asked the coach why he didn’t say anything about the fact that there was a dude playing for the other team. He said he didn’t say anything because he didn’t want to be on the 11 o’clock news.

My daughter asked to cover him and she shut him down. On the way home she said, “he was soft.”

Anyway, this Vermont Christian school did the sane thing. They said hey, someone’s gotta’ be on the news for doing the right thing. Let’s do it. Good for them.

These other insane people should be forbidden to be in charge of anything in the future.

VT Digger: A private Christian school that forfeited a girls’ basketball game rather than play against a team with a transgender player has been banned from Vermont school sporting events.

The Vermont Principals’ Association, which oversees school athletics, said Monday afternoon that Mid Vermont Christian School in Quechee will no longer be eligible to participate in sports and other sponsored activities.

The decision was announced after a Monday morning meeting of the Vermont Principals’ Association executive committee, during which members decided “that policies have been violated at the school level and thus there is an immediate determination of ineligibility for Mid-Vermont Christian in VPA sanctioned activities and tournaments going forward.”

Specifically, Mid Vermont violated the organization’s anti-discrimination and gender identity policies, the organization told the school in a letter of ineligibility. Those policies allow athletes to play on the team that is “consistent with their gender identity” and prohibit discrimination “based on a student’s actual or perceived sex and gender.”

A representative of Mid Vermont Christian did not immediately respond to a request for comment via email and phone call.

Mid Vermont Christian School drew international headlines last month after its girls’ basketball team refused to play against Long Trail School, which had a transgender athlete on its basketball team.

In its letter, the Vermont Principals’ Association cited that forfeit and the “corresponding rationale” that the school shared with media outlets as the basis for its decision.

Mid Vermont Christian’s head of school, Vicky Fogg, said in a statement last month that the school believed “playing against an opponent with a biological male jeopardizes the fairness of the game and the safety of our players.”
