If you like free speech and want to support what we’re doing, feel free to donate to the Turtle fund:
Hey fam – if you’d like to support Turtleboy and what we do here, feel free to hit the donate button at the top. We basically have to run this site like a Bernie Sanders campaign now since we’ve been blacklisted by Google and Facebook, due to the fact that rabid SJWs keep reporting our posts. Getting blacklisted by Google is a death sentence for most websites, since it’s much harder to monetize. And we all know the damage Facebook has done. We’re never going to stop fighting for free speech, but in the meantime the best way for turtle riders to fight back is to donate to the cause. Without you people none of this is possible. We love you all.
Back in the day if you thought that someone with a penis was a boy you were a normal person accepting the realities of biology. Today you are transphobic.
This sort of dialogue in the name of avoiding hurt feelings has manifested itself in the worst possible way in Connecticut high school track and field. Terry Miller and Andraya Yearwood have penises and testosterone. Two years ago both of them were boys, because they were in fact boys. Then last year Yearwood decided he was a girl, and won the district championship meet in the girl’s 100 meter dash.
But since “she” did not win the state championship, it actually just reinvigorated the SJW patrol:
“See, just because you’re born a boy does’t mean your better than every girl.”
Well, duh. But the whole point of separating the gender is based on the scientific fact that on average boys are bigger, stronger, and faster than girls. The world’s fastest woman wouldn’t even make the Penn State men’s track team. So you can say you’re a girl all you want because you’re mentally imbalanced, and adults can humor you in the name of tolerance, but it doesn’t change the fact that you’re still a boy and have distinct advantages over girls in athletic competition.
The fact of the matter is that Yearwood wouldn’t have even qualified for the district meet if he ran as a boy. But he won the girl’s meet, and in doing so girls were hurt because of it. The 9th place girl was denied a shot to make it to the finals. Cromwell High School, who Yearwood runs for, got 10 points in that event, and every girl’s team who she displaced by finishing first got 2 less points. It opened up the door we all knew it would – what is to stop a boy who wants to win from just saying they’re a girl?
This was the slippery slope that we were told would never happen. But it happened again this year in Connecticut as Terry Miller, who competed on the boy’s team in winter track, decided to become a girl this spring in his sophomore season. And he’s much faster than Yearwood. They finished first and second in the Connecticut State Championship in the 100, and Miller also won the 200 meters, smashing the state record in both events in the process:

This is what social progress looks like:

This is a good thing. This should be celebrated. A boy using his biological advantages to beat up on girls.
Eight girls make the finals and score points for their team in each event. This means the 9th and 10th place girls who worked their ass off to make it this far were denied a chance to score points for their time because two boys decided to be girls, and we have to humor their delusions.
I don’t care what anyone says, this is insanity. And I’m kind of glad it’s happening because it’s highlighting just how insane it is. Either we’re going to keep pretending this is normal, or smart people who aren’t afraid of being labeled as transphobic are gonna stand up and say things that are undeniably true.
And we all know who is victimized here – high school girls. Girls who can’t speak up for themselves for fear of being doxxed and labeled as bigots. See this look right here?
That’s the look of someone who wants to say out loud, “What more can I do?” She trained. She ate right. She committed herself. She invested her time. She was better than every girl she faced all season.
And then in the most important meet all her hard work was flushed down the drain because a boy said he was a girl and stole what was rightfully her’s – a Connecticut State Championship.
Here’s an undeniable fact – if you are pro-transgender “rights”, you are anti-woman. You don’t get to pretend to be a feminist. And just to be clear, transgender people should have the same civil rights as the rest of us. They should be able to eat where they want, say what they want, and buy as many guns as they want. But beating up on girls is not a civil right guaranteed by the constitution. It’s a right we have created out of thin air because the left has been hijacked by radicals and nutjobs.
Janice Turner is a feminist writer who writes for The Times in merry old England. She expressed her dismay about this and got lectured by woke for her lack of wokeness:
Two male-bodied trans gender runners came first and second. What do you say to the girls who train so hard but can never win? Yet can’t even say: this is not fair. https://t.co/P3KKNL4unZ

this is such a marginal issue compared to the daily oppression of transgender people though
— Alex Biancardi (@Antiracist_Ally) June 7, 2018
A marginal issue? This coming from a man, claiming to be an “intersectional feminist posh white guy who hates white supremacy, heteronormative-patriarchy and capitalism.”
And he’s telling a woman, that the issues of young girls being beaten and bullied by high school boys, is a “marginal issue”. Women’s issues are marginal, because transgender people are “oppressed.” Even though they’re not oppressed in any way, shape, or form. In the woke world this is called “mansplaining.”A big no-no. But the fact of the matter is that transgender boys come before “cisgender” girls in the oppression Olympics.
Newsflash – you don’t get to call yourself a feminist if you promote causes that hurt women and girls.
Then there was this idiot:
Oh look, another man telling a woman that her thoughts on women’s issues are invalid. This is what feminism looks like to woke dudes:
He tried to one up her by insinuating that she doesn’t know the biological history of these two boys:
Seriously? Fair? They honestly think this is fair??!! Protecting the feelings of two mentally ill boys who are too cowardly to run against other boys, is what “fairness” looks like.
There’s a really simple solution to this – divide it by sex instead of gender. The left has arbitrarily decided that gender is a social construct. This of course makes gender rather meaningless. But biological sex is different from gender, or so they tell us. So the solution is to divide them up by biological sex because people who have XY chromosomes are on average much faster, stronger, and bigger than people with XX chromosomes.
I figured something like this would highlight the insanity of this movement, but all it’s done is gotten the media to double down. Here’s a link from the CT Post, including a quote from the CIAC director, who oversees high school sports in Connecticut:
“A lot of people have asked, can you run a separate race, can you put an asterisk next to their name, do something that shows there is a standard that is different from that?” said CIAC executive director Karissa Niehoff. “When you get into that playing out, you have got civil rights issues.
“We do feel for them,” Niehoff said. “Fully agree it doesn’t feel good. The optic isn’t good. But we really do have to look at the bigger issues that speak to civil rights and the fact this is high school sports.”
No. The bigger issue is boys are beating up on girls in the same of social progress. The fact that every person in charge of every non-Chick Fil-A business and government entity has to repeat these radical left wing talking points, even though they know it’s complete bullshit, is scary. We are basically compelled to say the “right” things in order to keep our jobs and avoid the wrath of the SJW Twitter mob. We are no longer living in a democracy when people are not allowed to tell the truth or express their opinions freely. The free exchange of ideas is the fundamental core of a democratic society.
This is how dominant the winning boy was:
The 100 wasn’t a race. It was a blowout. The 200 was closer, still a record that spanned to 1997 fell. Miller, trying to sweep three events, finished fourth in the 400. Still, it was an overpowering performance that alone put Bulkeley in sixth place in the state.
The team standings were altered, too. Southington won the team title with 35 points, three ahead of Bloomfield. Without the Miller and Yearwood, Bloomfield would have had 34. You spread around Miller’s 25 points and Yearwood’s points and obviously a number of other team standings were altered.
He scored 24 points for the Bulkely girl’s team. He single handedly beat all but five teams combined scores. In doing so he kept three girls from competing for a place and scoring points for their teams. Because you get 10 points for first, 8 for second, 6 for third, and so on, the girl who finished 3rd in the 100 meter dash got 6 points for her team instead of 10. So it’s advantageous for teams who don’t have good sprinters. Southington likely scored their points in the field or distance events. Bloomfield was displaced in the sprints and as a result they lost the state championship.
You’d think the girls they displaced would be upset, but instead they’re forced to pretend like this is a good thing:
“To be honest, I think it’s great they get a chance to compete and as long as they’re happy, I guess, there’s not that much I can do,” said RHAM’s Bridget Lalonde, who finished third in the 100 behind Miller and Yearwood. “The rules are the rules. The only competition is the clock. You can only run as fast as you can.”
No Bridget, you were the real winner. I know you can’t say that because you’ll be labeled as a bigot, but you’re the fastest girl in the state. The only competition is the clock if you’re in first place by a lot. For everyone else the competition are the people standing next to you. And you had two boys standing next to you at the start.
Another runner said this:
Asked if she had any problems competing against transgender athletes, Swierbut said, “Not at all. If you’re good enough to run, you’re good enough to run. If somebody wants to win, they’re going to work their tail off to win. It doesn’t matter who you are, what you are, everybody should have the chance.”
These poor kids have been brainwashed. No hunny, that’s not how biology works. You didn’t lose to people who trained harder than you. You lost to people who have distinct physical advantages over you because they have Y chromosomes.
At least some dissent has been rising from coaches:
On Monday, Moore said, “I’ve been stopped by at least five coaches (Monday), all of them saying they really liked what I said in the paper. How come other coaches aren’t talking? This is a big issue a lot of coaches have, that we’ve got to do something, but how come you’re not saying anything? I’ve said what I needed to say. I’m getting a little annoyed with the coaches that we haven’t been able to get together and do what’s best for everybody.”
Collins said there has been all sort of talk by coaches throughout the state, but many are not allowed to speak by their administration. Hamden coach Mike Migliore was one of those.
And therein lies the problem. Other coaches thank him for saying what they’re too afraid to say. Because if they say it they’ll lose their job. Don’t tell me we have free speech rights in this country, because we clearly don’t. If you can’t speak your mind without losing your job then we’re not living in a free society.
Luckily parents and one brave girl are not allowing a mob of tolerance Nazis to keep them from standing up for their daughters and themselves:
“I think it’s unfair to the girls who work really hard to do well and qualify for Opens and New Englands,” said Glastonbury sophomore sprinter Selina Soule, who finished sixth in the 100-meter State Open final Monday. “These girls, they’re just coming in and beating everyone. I have no problem with them wanting to be a girl.”
Bianca Stanescu, Soule’s mother, has been circulating a petition at track meets calling on the state legislature to require athletes to compete in sports based on their gender at birth, unless the athlete has undergone hormone therapy.
Selina Soule GHS finished 6th in 100 & studied literature – Title IX & competitive sports, said…“Of course, it should be that way for math, science, chorus. Sports are set up for fairness. Biologically male/female are different. The majority is being sacrificed for the minority
— Kevin T. Cleary (@coachktcleary) June 9, 2018
It’s encouraging to see Selina and her mother speak out for themselves and other girls. If either of them wants to come on the Turtleboy podcast and talk about it feel free to email us at [email protected] Parents are the ones who really need to step up. I have a daughter, and my heart breaks for her when I see shit like this. She likes sports too, but why should she get her hopes up when out there somewhere a little boy will one day be a big girl, and will kick her ass no matter how hard she trains?
