We all know that the best male athletes are faster and stronger than the best female athletes. This is Biology 101, not advanced Rocket Science. Still, it was striking for me to see the disparity between the fastest mile run by a man (3:43.3, by Hicham El El Guerrouj) and the fastest mile run by a woman (4:12.56 by Svetlana Masterkova). That’s quite a difference!
Already in 1965, Jim Ryun set a world record for high school students by running a mile in 3.55.3, a record that is 17 seconds faster than the top female athlete in the world has ever run.
What would happen if a top male runner identified as female? He would instantly shatter all female records. And that would be totally unfair to these women who have trained so hard and sacrificed so much for so many years.
In response, Navratilova came under fierce attacks from others in the LGBTQ community, forcing her to backtrack from her initial comments and apologize for calling trans athletes “cheats.”
This prompted Piers Morgan, hardly a defender of the right and over the years a steady ally to gay activism, to come to her defense.
Speaking of Serena Williams, arguably the greatest women’s tennis player of all time, he wrote, that “it’s not ‘sexist’ to say the top 1000 men would beat Serena – it’s a cold, hard, statistical fact.”
Oh, those pesky, facts! They simply don’t go away.
He continued: “Now imagine a scenario where a 25-year-old male player ranked say, No200 in the world, and earning around $100,000 a year, suddenly decides he wants to identify as female – either for genuine transgender reasons or for duplicitous, fraudulent, cynically commercial reasons – and now wishes to compete against women.
“That player, if he underwent hormonal treatment to reduce his testosterone levels to the required levels, could spend the next 3/4 years playing as a woman on the women’s tour.
