It was the debut of Gabrielle Ludwig, and at 6 feet 8, 220 pounds, with tattoos on her arms and legs, she stands out in the Contra Costa College gym. At 50, the Fremont resident is about three decades older than her Santa Clara community college teammates and opponents — and much taller.
What many at the 19th annual Comet Classic did not know was Ludwig had only been a woman since July, when she had a sex change operation. They didn’t know the long path traveled by the father and Desert Storm veteran, and how she may be the first transsexual athlete to play college sports as both genders.
While her coach, athletic director and supporters applaud Ludwig’s addition to the team, opponents and their followers question whether it’s fair.
As a young man, Ludwig briefly played at an East Coast community college and in pregame warm-ups before the Dec. 1 tournament championship game, she displayed a natural shooting touch.
“In time,” said Corey Cafferata, her coach, “she will be the most dangerous player in the state.”
Middle-aged trannies playing college basketball? No one would dare to disapprove in the 21st century where — I’m sure you’ll be glad to know — progressives are celebrating the news that “the Board of Trustees of the American Psychiatric Association (APA) has ratified the DSM-5 . . . so as of Dec. 1, trans persons are no longer classified by the medical community as mentally ill.”
Therefore, 6-foot-8 Gabrielle Ludwig is completely normal, and if you don’t think so, it must be because you’re crazy. Don’t worry. I’m sure ObamaCare will pay for treatment of “transphobia.”
UPDATE: Yeah, I’m sure you want to see the video:
Imagine you’re the parent of an 18-year-old community college basketball player and this sideshow freak just got a court order requiring that She-Hulk be permitted to play on your daughter’s team — and share the locker room with your daughter. Ain’t “equality” wonderful?
