Massachusetts Wants Equality, But Not Equality Equality, As This Proves ‘Unfair’

The mental disease that is modern liberalism starts at an early age, with sports, before reaching full bloom in adulthood, when the modern liberal goes into government and starts to sodomize the economy.

The New York Slime: Boys Swimming on Girls Teams Find Success, Then Draw Jeers, emphasis mine:

At the Division I state championships on Saturday at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, there are eight boys in the 28-swimmer field in the 50 freestyle. Although Norwood’s Higgins was ruled academically ineligible Friday and will not compete at the state meet, two of the top four seeds in the 50 freestyle are boys, giving rise to the possibility that a boy could be the girls state champion.
Sarah Hooper, a senior at Needham High who is the fourth-fastest female entrant, finds the situation difficult to swallow.
“It’s really frustrating to see how athletic directors and school administrators aren’t doing anything,” she said. “They really aren’t advocating for us. I understand there isn’t an opportunity for these boys, but it infuriates me that they can’t combine two schools’ boys to create one team or have them compete in separate heats. The way it is now, the boys are taking recognition away from girls who have worked hard and deserve it.”

Let us understand the chronology at work:

  1. Sports are segregated by gender, due to the blindingly obvious, chemically irrefutable fact that boys != girls.
  2. There exists an “open access amendment to the [Massachusetts] state constitution, which was voted into law in the 1970s and mandates that boys and girls must be afforded equal access to athletics.”
  3. Smaller programs, therefore, had boys swimming on girls teams.
  4. Boys view sports in a capitalistic fashion. You know: work hard, succeed.
  5. Sooner or later, even the small pool of boys produces an athlete of sufficient caliber to mock the fundamental, gobsmacking idiocy of the morons who couldn’t figure out that boys != girls those decades back. A record is broken. Massive butt-hurt results:

    [Cynthia Baker] added: “There’s a reason these records are girls’ records. If there was no difference in boys’ strength, then it would be a unisex record. It’s really not fair. The more I thought about it, the more I couldn’t believe it.”
    Paul Wetzel, a spokesman for the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association, said the state’s swimming committee would meet after the season, and among the topics on the table would be Higgins’s record swim.
    “They are going to look for ways to deal with a boy holding a record in a girl’s sport,” he said, “Because sooner or later, I guess, some boy is going to come along and be the fastest swimmer.”

How modern liberal is that? I envision a reality show, where modern liberals are placed in a problem solving arrangement, forced to think, become self-reliant, and be rewarded based upon merit; or they are allowed to cry and starve in a corner, as is their wont.

That show should be called ‘life’, except that these little cretins worm their way into positions of authority and broadcast their inner insufficiency across society, cheapening it. I revile these creeps, whose crowning accomplishment in life is very likely to get arrested at an ObamaVille clean-out at your local #Occupy protest.

And don’t go getting me started on Beatitudes and meekness, and how Christianity is supposed to coddle weakness. At that point, you’re freebasing the Gospel to the point of indistinguishability from a nursery rhyme.

    I’m tempted to say the name of a certain leftie troll three times, just to hear the silly spin directly from the horse’s, errrrr, mouth.

    It’s all about equality of outcome, and if your irony meter has not pegged, you suffer from liberal piety, and wear the blinders with enthusiasm.

    So when do we get an Equalizer General?

    It’s like the East German Swim Team became the new normal.

    Then again what is normal now anyways?  Frankly I’m wondering if I should require a signature and a blood sample to ensure my date is female.  With drugs and surgery God is the only one who really knows.

    Man that makes my skin crawl.

    I and a few girls swam on the boys’ team in high school.  It was fun, and there’s no better way to improve one’s performance than swimming against bigger and stronger athletes every day.  In the mid-1970’s, competing head-to-head with boys was the height of cool, anyway, even if we did lose all the time.

    A couple of us girls dropped so much time that we had a shot at breaking some girls’ state records.  But it wouldn’t have counted.  Alas, alack.  But that was the reality. 

    Why can’t these boys deal with their reality?  What a bunch of sissies.

    This sounds like a state version of the Title 9 code for colleges.  Colleges which take any sort of federal aid must offer equal opportunities for men and women in all “non-revenue” sports, which includes most except football, men’s basketball, and for some baseball.  It doesn’t matter if there is no conference or other organized competition in the region for say, women’s wrestling or sculls, the money spent and number of athletes involved must be the same for men and women.  It doesn’t matter if no women show interest, the law is the law.

    So the inevitable result was to increase women’s opportunities in odd sports, while getting rid of men’s programs, some of which had histories of decades or even a century.  If they couldn’t balance things with more women competing, they had to cut men’s programs to do it.

    Because to liberals, equality of opportunity isn’t the goal or even something admirable:  they only worship equality of outcomes.

    Tinker all you want, there’s no way this circle can be squared.  Irrational outcomes are the inevitable result of disregarding any reality, not just this particular case. 

    Reality cannot be denied successfully over the long term.
