I am a male and swam all my life through high school. When I graduated in 1976, I had not fully matured. I was 5’11” and weighed 170 lbs. I matured in college and ended up being 6’2″ and weighed 190 lbs.

I didn’t qualify in an individual event for the men’s state swimming meet [but] if I had been a “transgender female,” I would have won every single state female’s individual event in 1976. My individual times for each event were better than any female’s times that year.

It’s a shame that high schools, the NCAA, and competitive sports [teams] are allowing this to happen. It takes away the sacrifice and effort that any biological woman must endure to be at the top of her sport, only to be beaten by a biological male.

We need to save women’s sports for biological women only. We need to save women’s locker rooms and restrooms for biological women only–for their right of privacy.
