Separation Of Church And State Is An Illusion

According to the state of Connecticut, this is a woman.

Details here. It's a dude who won a race by posing as a girl.

This is a perfect example of progressive secularism as the state religion. It is the belief in something that is simply not true, that belief adhering to a catechism instead of science. It even includes fear of expressing heresies.
Kate Hall — who last year won the girls 100-meter dash Class M state title as a sophomore — came in second to Yearwood at this year’s 100-meter race and was tearful in the aftermath, the Hartford Courant reported.

“It’s frustrating,” Hall of Stonington High School told the Courant. “But that’s just the way it is now.”

After finishing third in the 200 — and watching Yearwood cross the finish line first in that race as well — Hall told the Courant, “I can’t really say what I want to say, but there’s not much I can do about it."
I would argue that this is far worse than 10 Commandments plaques or crosses on buildings as neither of those examples punish apostasy and heresy with the same vehemence. You can walk past the 10 Commandments and shake your head, ignore it or make snarky comments, but woe be to him or her that utters the horrible truth that dude looks like a lady.

Actually, when you come to think about it, dude isn't even bothering to try to look like a lady. Oh well. I really just wanted an excuse to post this video. Enjoy it while you still can. It might be considered too transgressive and get blocked by YouTube.

I dunno, this seems to me to be almost entirely a problem with the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference being filled with a bunch of lazy people who can't be bothered to make sensible eligibility rules. And an even bigger number of clueless wonders whining about "fairness" in athetics.

"Fairness?" In *Athletics*? What planet are these people from, that they think athletics are fair? They want us to believe that whether or not you excel in a sport depends on how much "heart" you have, how badly you want it, and how much effort and sweat you put into it. But you know what? That's mostly a lie. Attitude helps, but it doesn't help nearly as much as just being naturally strong, or fast, or tall, or coordinated. Most of us could work at our chosen sport all day, every day, with single-minded dedication, and still not rise much above "mediocre" in our athletic ability. The world is full of people who want to be the best at a given athletic event, but only the ones who have both the drive *and* the genetics actually get to do it. The truth is the few percent of people who won the genetic lottery are always going to dominate sports, and everybody else is just struggling along to give them a field of losers to defeat.

The only sports that even can make a pretense of fairness are the ones like wrestling and boxing, where everybody gets split into weight classes. If other sports aren't going to do something similar, where people only compete against others with comparable natural capability, then any nattering about "fairness" is just noise.

Hmm. You may want to include the martial arts in your list. As a former kung fu artist, I assure you I got my head handed to me regularly by people in my weight class.


As for it being an isolated incident, I'd agree, but for the attacks on North Carolina who had the temerity to suggest that men should use the men's room. I acknowledge my religion analogy is flawed, but I still like it.

"Separation Of Church And State Is An Illusion"

Of course it is -- there is *always* a "god of the system", and the god will be either the God who created men, who feds men, or one created by men, who feds on men.

"Separation Of Church And State" was invented by anti-Christians as a bait-and-switch ploy to set up *their* god as the "god of the system".
