Transgender runner displaces female for state championship spot, as protesters are expelled from stadium

At a California high school track and field competition, a transgender runner prevented a biological female runner from going to the state championships. Transgender biological male Athena Ryan, who finished second, displaced biological female Adeline Johnson, who finished fourth.

In footage of the award ceremony, an upset Johnson gives a thumbs-down sign before taking her place on the podium.

As the award ceremony occurred, protesters were being ordered to leave the stadium. They were there to protest against the displacement of biological females from sports, and were holding signs and banners reading “Protect Female Sports.”

A security guard said the protesters had to get out of the stadium because signs and banners weren’t allowed. But off-camera, a woman pointed out to him that many people other than the protesters were holding up signs inside the stadium, without being told to leave.

One woman spectator was outraged by the protesters’ signs  saying “That is disgusting … I find that f***in’ offensive. It shouldn’t even f***ing matter. It’s none of your business what someone else does. You have f***ing issues. I feel f***ing sorry for all your sorry asses.”

If the biologically male transgender runner had been running against boys, rather than girls, the trans runner would not have gotten an award or medal, and would have placed dead last.

Trans runner Ryan’s second-place time of 4:55.91 in the girls’ 1,600 meters was much slower than any of the male runners’ times. It was well below all 29 of the boys’ finishers. The last place boy had a time of 4:46.54 in the preliminaries, 9 minutes faster than the biologically male transgender runner.
