Policy Denies Scientific Reality of Sex and Endangers Women
Florida Senator Marco Rubio has called on USA Boxing Executive Director and CEO Mike McAtee to reverse the organization’s decision regarding transgender athletes. Rubio argues that the policy disregards the scientific reality of sex, poses a threat to women, disrupts fairness in athletics, and belittles womanhood by reducing it to a matter of surgery and hormone levels.
Dangerous Consequences of the Policy
Rubio’s letter to McAtee highlights the potential dangers of the policy. He references the case of transgender fighter Fallon Fox, who caused serious injuries to female opponents during matches, including three knockouts in the ring. Rubio also cites World Boxing Council President Mauricio Sulaiman, who believes that men should not fight women.
The Inherent Physical Differences
The senator emphasizes that allowing men to compete against women is reprehensible, even in the context of athletic competition. Rubio argues that civilized countries have established special prohibitions on violence against women precisely because there are fundamental physical differences between men and women. Men possess advantages such as muscle mass, heart and lung capacity, and skeletal structure, which make them more capable of violence. These advantages cannot be eliminated through hormone injections or monitoring.
Protecting Athletes and Ensuring Fair Competition
Rubio asserts that pressure from pro-transgender activists should not outweigh the need to protect and safeguard athletes. He states that endangering women in the pursuit of inclusivity is unacceptable. The senator urges USA Boxing to reverse its decision and ensure fair competition by upholding the principle that it is wrong for men to hit women.
USA Boxing has not yet responded to requests for comment on the matter.
