In March Binary reported on the case of female athlete Selina Soule who missed out on a major sporting opportunity due to two transgender athletes.
Now Soule is fighting back.
The Daily Signal reported, “A female high school athlete who didn’t qualify for a track event because two boys who identify as girls ran faster filed a complaint Monday with the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights.”
Soule indicated that others being severely disadvantaged by the inclusion of males are too afraid to speak out.
“I haven’t been the only one affected by this,” she said. “There have been countless other female athletes in the state of Connecticut, as well as my entire indoor track team. We missed out on winning the state open championship because of the team that the transgender athlete was on.”
The loss also meant Soule missed out on the opportunity to compete in front of college coaches at the New England regionals, severely diminishing her chances of a scholarship.
A complaint has been filed by Alliance Defending Freedom, a legal aid group.
The complaint “asks the Education Department “to investigate illegal discrimination against the Connecticut athletes.” It also states, “boys have consistently deprived [Selina] Soule and the other female athletes of honors and opportunities to compete at elite levels.”
Binary spokeswoman, Kirralie Smith, commended Soule for her actions.
“Soule’s actions are brave and necessary. Female athletes must take a stand against the radical gender activism robbing them of opportunities in sport.”
“Males have a distinct biological advantage in athletics with speed, stamina and capacity. That’s why there’s always been separate categories for males and females. This must be upheld for the sake of integrity in sport.”
