Who didn't see this coming? A Texas transgender boy, Mark Beggs, is within one win of girls state wrestling championship. Mark is taking testosterone to transition from a girl to a boy. He is 56-0 on the mat this year.
Here is some footage of a match.
Per the AP:
A 17-year-old transgender boy moved within one match of winning a Texas state girls wrestling title.
Mack Beggs pinned Kailyn Clay to improve to 56-0, putting him in Saturday afternoon’s championship match.
Beggs is a junior from Euless Trinity in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. His family has said he would rather be wrestling boys. Some girls and their advocates agree.
They say the testosterone Beggs has been taking while transitioning from female to male has made him too strong to wrestle fairly against girls. But state policy calls for students to wrestle against the gender listed on their birth certificates.
So Beggs beat Taylor Latham and Mya Engert handily on Friday before his victory over Clay that sent him to the finals.
In the semifinals, the match was halted for a couple of minutes because Beggs had a bloody nose. Trainers finally managed to stop the bleeding and the fight resumed. Not long after, Beggs slammed Clay on the mat and pinned her.
