Mack Beggs

A transgender high school wrestler is testing the tolerance of even the most ardent transgender supporters.

Mack Beggs, 17, won the Class 6A state girls wrestling championship in the 110-pound weight class on Saturday. Beggs is a female-to-transgender who prefers to dress and behave in a stereotypical masculine manner.

The teenager, who suffers from the mental disorder gender dysphoria, began taking testosterone injections more than a year ago to help her develop male characteristics such as facial hair and to build muscle mass.

Beggs’ testosterone treatments led to criticism and a lawsuit aimed at preventing her from competing against girls next year.

The Euless Trinity high school student defeated 3 girls to claim her championship title. 2 other girls forfeited by dropping out of the competition in protest.

After Beggs’ semifinal win, one parent, Patti Overstreet, stood up and yelled “cheater” at the teen.

There were boos and a smattering of applause after Beggs defeated Chelsea Sanchez in the finals on Saturday to remain 56-0 on the year.

Beggs’ parents claim she insisted on wrestling with the boys, but the University Interscholastic League (UIL) unanimously voted last year to determine gender based on the sex listed on the birth certificate.

Parents and wrestling fans complained bitterly that testosterone is a performance enhancing drug that gives Beggs an unfair advantage over other girls.

Transgender supporters complained that the UIL’s birth certificate rule forced Beggs to wrestle girls rather than boys whose testosterone levels are more in line with hers.

The UIL examined Beggs’ medical records and determined she qualified because a doctor prescribed testosterone for her mental disorder.

But the International Olympic Committee, MMA and NCAA disqualifies athletes who are prescribed performance enhancing drugs.

Experts in the medical field agree there is no medically acceptable reason to inject an otherwise healthy girl with massive doses of testosterone.

Others point out the increasing abuse of performance enhancing steroids among adolescents and teenagers, many of whom refer to testosterone as “Vitamin T”.

The controversy drew hundreds of comments from readers of the Star-Telegram, who expressed their anger and frustration over former President Obama’s gay agenda legacy.

“Tolerance is a ruse to get people to let their guard down and accept evil as our morals as a society circles the drain just to make %.01 of the population feel accepted,” wrote Nick Rausch.

Reader Billy Marky wrote:

“There you have it. The beginning of the END of girls/women’s sports. How ironic that all the liberal feminists that fought for women to be able to play sports have now led the charge that eliminated the very thing they fought for.”

And there was this comment left by Ricki Cisar of the Wharton School:

“Love it. Love that we can legally beat women. They have had it coming for decade.”




  • Strong White Woman

    I wrassled boys in highschool. The suplex, crotch jerk, and the oil check were my signature moves? I was a very popular girl? The Blanche Devereaux of Clay City High?

  • puppylove

    This is unfair. If another biological female took the same hormones, but didn’t say she wanted to be a man she would be disqualified.

  • Wreckognize Game

    Could you beat her/him though?

    Halle Berry accessorized her red carpet look with a bird nest on top of of her head.

  • missmiami305

    This is so unfair

    I wish I knew how to add screenshots. Her hair is a mess

  • PhillyLala

    Sandra, why oh why are you so obsessed with the transgender community?

  • Lovezoe

    Sigh.

  • klwbaby

    It’s always Obama’s fault, huh?????

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    I don’t EVEN want to know about the dipstick and oil check. ??

  • Vonn

    Love this comment, to the 10th power. Cuz this is some bull.

  • Vonn

    Dorothy in the streets, Blanche in the sheets. I see you.

  • Haha

    This is so disgusting and stupid

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    This reminds me of the runner from Africa. They said her testosterone levels were higher than normal/average and were trying to determine if she should be DQ’d.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I am simply pointing out the hypocrisy of the transgenders who demand tolerance while trampling all over the rights of women. You’ll learn when their rights supersedes yours.

  • Erin Blockabitch

    Castor Semenya.

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    Yup.

  • Vonn

    Yes. I was mad. Saying she was a man instead of saying that her urine test was dirty. Countless stories.

  • Strong White Woman

    Yesssssss??

  • Sucker Free

    tranny shmanny…where is the oscar fashion post?

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    So we have female who “feels” like a male… then takes male hormones… and competes with [and beats] other females who dont take such hormones. …And we’re supposed to consider this “fair” competition?

    Wow. Sometimes it feels like a sort of collective insanity is taking over this nation. smh.

  • Haha

    Thank Obama for all this

  • MissyJ

    If a regular male/female can’t take HGH, hormone, or other chemical enhancers neither can a trans and compete. You win with whatchu got or nothing at all.

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    Bingo.

  • http://www.nicolaloves.com/ NicolaLoves

    Caster Semenya. She’s intersex. No ovaries but testis in its place.
    Gender is complicated. We need to start accepting that.

  • Wreckognize Game

    Yes thank you. Why Halle?????

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    It seems as if this person benefited from this on both sides.

    IF this write up is correct, I wonder how this person feels winning an award designated for someone who they don’t identify with. Why not get the certificate changed and THEN wrestle?

    Iono.

    Got me over here questioning my own self. ?

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    But, if your self doesn’t determine who you are…

    I don’t know.

    I’m tired.

  • nicelyput32

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    I’m all about folks living their way however I don’t agree with this.

  • hottlanta

    Can’t wait until they start installing Kotex menstrual pad holders in the men’s restroom and it is always gonna be a nasty one who puts in on the floor all bloody. Since the focus is all about women restrooms. The men will be out having a fit since all the focus seems to be on men like Leroy Cox seems to be fighting to use the women’s restroom instead of women like her and Chaz using the men’s restroom.

  • imright

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    Where have you been? I dragged his ass about it months ago. I couldn’t believe he allowed the gold digger/pimp he married grown ass kids to take on his last name. What kind of nonsense is that? They have daddies not their fault their mother had a thing for dope boys and scammers. Their fathers aren’t even dead beats. Just locked and or too poor for their trifling mama.

    Who else black got a win besides Mahershala?

  • MystyBlu

    So far the two winners have been more than deserving. I’m waiting for at least one more. If the SAG/Oscar pattern is followed Denzel and moonlight will win ??

  • MystyBlu

    Probably not. Nor Moonlight. Nor Hidden Figures. This year is NOT a gimme. These movies and actors/actresses earned every accolade

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Lol ?

    Nice! I rarely get tested which makes me nervous with some of the jobs I’ve done. But I also don’t smoke. Most I would ever possibly get is a contact from ole dude. I wonder if that would show? ?

    Was my Viola comment offensive? Why was it deleted?

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Right unlike 1986 they are finally getting is because it’s deserved. 1986 and many years after have been travestys.

  • MystyBlu

    Exactly! Some people are butt hurt about all the Black nominees and winners thinking it’s a gimme when this year has just been exceptional with our work. There have been other years but all three major films deserved every award. Not about Black or white. We were unadulterated excellence this year and it’s being recognized ?????

    This is bullsh@t. You can’t have it both ways. Parents need to pull their daughters out and stop paying for all that expensive wrestling equipment. That will stop this mess. Violence will get you nowhere. Hitting someone in the pockets will get you everywhere…. Trust…..

    Well this is now the world we live in and what has been made acceptable….. Not shocking

  • Elevated Soul

    So basically this girl is allowed to dope?She’s taking male hormones because she think she is a man,so why not wrestle real men?It’s not fair to the girls who aren’t doping.

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    The problem with that (though I understand the reasoning) is you end up ultimately penalizing the real girls for one mentally ill one. It’s a tough situation… a sad situation

  • tynamight

    I hate this story. So sad!

  • LibraGirlonly

    I agree!

  • SummerBaby

    This is bull!! I don’t agree with this at all.

  • ShWa

    Why play against the girls if u want to be a boy, and ur taking male inhancement drugs! Since u want to be a boy play against them…..

  • Blak

    Absolute garbage. At some point we need to put our foot down and stop enabling these people with their mental illness. If you are taking testosterone, which is a performance enhancing substance, under no circumstance should you be allowed to compete against women. That’c cheating. And it is not a male; there are only 2 genders and she will always be a female cheating other females and living in a mental illness bubble

  • Kim

    Let HIM wrestle the boys like HE wanted to do.

  • Kim

    He wants to wrestle the boys the UIL won’t let him.

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    Wait, what? Beat women? Isn’t this a female? So confused….

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    But they let her take testosterone and wrestle against the girls?

  • Kim

    Yes because it is prescribed by a doctor.They also let kids who are prescribed other drugs like,predisone (steroids) wrestle if it is prescribed for a medical reason.

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    Disgusting…

  • chappedlippz

    Of course HE won

  • Ms.Caramel

    Those wins mean nothing to her because she knows she has an advantage. I bet she’s not happy at all.

  • pure_rachet

    She should not be able to compete at all. Allowing her to wrestle men is enabling the agenda but having her wrestle women is unfair. Same thing as allowing cross dressing men access to women’s bathroom. Sorry, i don’t support it.

    Thanks interwebs for giving everyone a voice. ?

  • first page

    Right!…or decline to wrestle at all…either way it is unfair for both male and female wrestlers. Can they start a transgender wrestling team? Who will they wrestle? Trans to males or males to trans or undecided to undecided?

  • Stacey J

    If he is transgender fine….but you can’t have your foot in both worlds in situations like this – it’s not fair….he had an advantage over the women that he competed against.
