Biological Male Division 1 Runner Switches to Women’s Team For Senior Year

A biological male runner in the NCAA’s top division is competing in women’s cross country this fall.

June Eastwood, who identifies as a transgender woman, will represent the University of Montana at a cross country meet Saturday.

Eastwood competed on the men’s track and cross country teams through May 2018, the Bozeman Daily Chronicle reported. “I felt like I still had more years in me, and that I would regret it later on if I didn’t at least try to do what I am doing,” Eastwood told the local paper, describing the decision to compete on the women’s team.

“Our goal is to be supportive of all student-athletes. I understand there will be varying opinions,” university athletic director Kent Haslam told the Daily Caller News Foundation in an email. “We have followed the NCAA bylaws and policies in place when it comes to inclusion of transgender student-athletes and participation in intercollegiate athletic competition.”

“I am not in a position to know if June will gain an unfair advantage. It is not my area of expertise and therefore we rely on the policies as set by the NCAA,” Haslam added.

NCAA policy requires male runners who identify as transgender women to suppress testosterone levels for a full calendar year before competing in women’s athletics. The NCAA published an explainer in 2011 calling it “not well-founded” to assume “that being born with a male body automatically gives a transgender woman an unfair advantage when competing against non-transgender women.”

Male athletes who identify as transgender women have an “intolerable” advantage over their female competitors, even after suppressing their testosterone levels, a June paper published in the Journal of Medical Ethics concluded.

Eastwood’s personal bests as a male runner would shatter records in the women’s category, Running blog LetsRun noted.

Eastwood’s switch to the women’s team comes as male athletes have racked up victories in women’s athletics.

Franklin Pierce University runner CeCe Telfer, a biological male who identifies as a transgender woman, won an NCAA Division II women’s track and field championship in May. Telfer competed on the men’s team before switching to women’s events.

Telfer denied having an unfair advantage over female runners in a June interview with ESPN. “If anything, me competing against cisgender females is a disadvantage because my body is going through so many medical implications, like it’s going through biochemistry changes,” Telfer told ESPN.

Two biologically male runners, both of whom identify as transgender girls, have dominated girls’ high school track in Connecticut. One of their female competitors, Selina Soule, has spoken out against the male runners’ advantages.

  1. First off There is no such thing as Transgenderism there are only two genders! There is no such thing as being GAY either unless it is descriptive of one’s feeling of glee. These Politically Correct terms are designed to give the illusion of abominable acts as being normal and acceptable.

    For the same reason there is no such thing as “transgender or transgenderism” There are only two genders determined by chromosomal make up PERIOD!!

    Goebbels had it right when he said if you tell a lie long and loud enough the lie becomes accepted as fact Then any ensuing lie is deemed the truth. That is how Political Correctness is designed to work.

    Political Correctness is a manipulative tool employed by the left for centralizing power to end all debate on all subjects frowned upon by the one dimensional regressive Lieberal left!! That way they needn’t have to have the means to defend their agenda just employ the standard deflective tools ingrained in the vacuum between their ears!!

    Political Correctness has the power to dictate one’s policies onto everyone else!!

    Political Correctness is meant to silence those who disagree with one dimensional regressive hypocritical politically correct socialist-communist Lieberal doctrine/tenet!!

    Politically correct language… is designed to make abominable actions (being QUEER) acceptable, lies sound truthful, murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to hot air. Pure wind.

    Political Correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    Political Correctness is America’s newest form of intolerance, and it is especially pernicious because it comes disguised as tolerance

    Political Correctness is fascism pretending to be Manners

    Wiley’s Dictionary Definition of Political Correctness — Silence the logical conclusion of politically correct speech.

    Political Correctness is a tsunami of raw sewage!!!

    I don’t give a damn what anyone thinks of or calls me I REFUSE to bow to Political Correctness and change for no one!!! I cannot help it if people cannot take me at 200 proof!!

    Secondly Tyrants fear masculine men!!! This is why there is a war on masculinity: There has been a war waged by the Deep State to emasculate men so they are easily controlled and for the most part they have been quite successful.

    At one time society had categorized the male population into two groups, type A or Alfa and type B Beta. I have discovered a third, category the PLM Pseudo Lieberal Male. The PLM male has been rendered impotent, castrated, and lobotomized by political correctness. He has succumbed to Globalist/Communist aka Deep State dogma having no mind of his own is fearful of competing against his peers!

    The PLM is more woman than what God created man to be. Instead of accepting or submitting themselves to lieberal dogma or worse, to another man, a REAL MAN would completely reject these ideas. Sadly in the LIEberal world of the PLM submitting themselves and their children to abominable acts is the norm which further erodes society!!!

    The masculine male is a dying breed. We have been told for far too long that violence in never the answer. However this is moot when considering the promotion of Globalist aka Communist ideology. The PLM is easily manipulated and in some cases conditioned to commit violent acts. We have been told that it’s cruel to kill our own food. The Globalist’s aka Communists force us to consume processed food loaded with chemicals and GMO’s to weaken our bodies as well as our minds.

    We have been conditioned to believe that there is no place in modern society for the man who refuses to shave his chest or wear skinny jeans. As a man we are the protector. As a man we are solely responsible for the safety of and well being of our family.

    How can anyone be a good husband if they cannot defend their wife? How can we be a good father if we are unable to protect our children? Remember the eyes of your children are fixed on you. You serve as an example of what young men should grow up to be…and what young women should seek out in a partner.

    The PLM has been conditioned to reject reality, responsibility, common sense, and is a follower seeking the safety and comfort of a large group – IMPOTENT!!! PLM have been tamed much like animals that perform at carnivals or circuses, responding to stimuli like promises of prosperity and safety. All that is necessary is the promise to blindly follow and obey their handlers.

    The defense mechanism of the PLM is to deflect, deny, and project his deficiencies onto those who are his superiors employ pejorative labels, or otherwise become obnoxious, believing if they continue to be obnoxious folks will just give in and allow them to have their way. These tactics are similar to what an obnoxious pet does to secure what it wants.

    I have some experience with obnoxious pets and people. Some of the tactics I use on obnoxious pets are frowned upon but they do obtain results. The three most effective ways to stifle pet dissent is to 1) get rid of the pet but since I do not back down from a challenge I opt for remedy no. 2 which is to take a garden hose to it until it is stifled. The third is if they become aggressive and physically attack you, (I have been assaulted by both animals and PLM clowns alike) you take them out to the north 40 shoot them and let the carrion take care of business.

    Dealing with obnoxious people is similar except for the hose I don’t use hoses or shoot them but nothing says that I have to acquiesce to being assaulted and not beat that aggressive assailant into the ground. Nor am I prevented from or assisting them in furthering their own humiliation. The PLM is easily manipulated as they do most of the work for me. All I need to do is to remind them how pathetic they are then let nature take its course.

    Unfortunately there aren’t ANY LIEberal males with an iota of masculinity!! The Leftopathic agenda is to promote homosexuality which is promoting Effeminization (effeminate behavior) of the American male. Effeminization which in IMHO castration and nothing close to being masculine!!!

    Lastly The modern woman is losing her uniqueness. Women weren’t created to do everything a man can do. Women were created to do everything a man cannot do!!
