The “progressive” Left’s social engineering has proceeded all the way from unrealistic/malignant to its ultimate: slapstick. Philosophers wondering why a hyperintelligent Creator would bother with such as we need look no further than the Rio Olympics to know that we are the en’ttract clowns of the universe. The 800 meter women’s gold medal was won by a South African athlete improbably named Caster Semenya, who beat all the others easily. This so jaw-dropping funny that we have difficulty believing it.
Per the report, athlete Semenya was ruled ineligible for the event after failing a gender test; Semenya (We still can’t believe this) has too much testosterone. Together with, we presume, the necessary glands to produce it. Of course, that is a deduction on our part, we have no idea. Maybe he-she-it imbibes the stuff? But that would be a rule violation, would it not? Damn, let a political liberal near anything and it gets complicated! Regardless, Semenya’s disqualification was overturned by the Court of Arbitration for Sport and he-she-it is now an Olympic gold medalist. In a women’s event. Unless of course, the Daily Caller is making it up. However, this isn’t the first such event; an Alaskan boy won a girls’ track and field event recently at a state meet. The newsfolk for some reason, seem not to have noticed. Seems odd, that.
What is amusing us so much here is that the same folk who some 40 years back pushed Title IX law into place, forcing schools etc. to provide girls athletic opportunities equal to those of boys, are responsible for the boys now winning the girl’ events. (Ladies: Be careful what you ask for … and whom you ask it of.) Title IX magnified female athletics … and is now handing it over to “Intersex” athletes. Whatever they are. What they do not appear to be, is girls. Well, until the Court of Arbitration for Sport rules them so, anyway.
So, unless all this is a huge joke, women’s sports are finished. Kaput. Mort. They are shot dead but like the equivalent elephant, are ambling along without yet realizing that they are dead. That is sad enough but it is also very, very funny in a way. Not an unjust ending for those who relied upon politicians to deliver by force something wrested from others. But even politicians will have to react when the media finally notice this one. Both boys and girls are at interest here and both grow into voters.
This should be interesting to observe as it is finally allowed to be seen. The Olympics is pretty visible; Caster Semenya may draw some notice, though not if the media can help it, we bet. But as more titles go to boys in girls’ events, even the feminists will have to remove their hands from in front of their eyes and take notice.
Meantime, we are Rolling on the Floor Laughing out Loud …
