I am a mother of 2 female athletes as well as a cross country coach. One of our daughters is a long distance runner. If she were to be forced to compete against biological males, she would go from being a top 10 runner to below the 50 mark easy. We need to keep our sports separate. If we need to have an “open” heat, so be it. It’s our responsibility to protect our girls, to encourage them to proud of their bodies and their abilities.
