Transgender student to play on Azusa High School softball team

Transgender student to play on Azusa High School softball team


AZUSA >> The Azusa High School girls softball team will include the state’s first transgender student-athlete, district officials said Thursday.

A senior, Pat Cordova-Goff, 17, is a member of the school’s cheer squad and played on the school’s baseball team as a freshman.

California Interscholastic Federation-Southern Section officials cited CIF guidelines for gender identity participation Wednesday and said that Cordova-Goff — who was born a boy but identifies as a girl — will be allowed to play on the girls team. The new rules took effect in September.

Cordova-Goff credited a change in state law — A.B.  1266 — for her decision to try out.
The 5-foot-8 Cordova-Goff has identified as a transgender female for several years. Thoughts of medical treatments or procedures are in the distant future, Cordova-Goff said.

“I can’t afford a wardrobe and makeup and everything, so I don’t have the resources to express myself the way I want to,” Cordova-Goff said. “I’m really pushing myself to be myself, and I finally have started going by ‘Pat,’ started using ‘she’ and ‘hers.’  ”

At least one gender expert believes Cordova-Goff’s physique likely won’t have a noticeable impact on the field of play.

“There has been no change in women’s sports or athletic outcomes or anything at all,” said Helen Carroll, the director of the National Center for Lesbian Right’s Sports Project. “Transgender girls who are playing are playing just as other girls and women. We’re not seeing that there is a competitive advantage when a 6-foot-3 transgender student plays against other 6-foot-3 girls playing on the team.
And apparently "she' will be swinging her lumber in the locker room as well.




And if you think this absolutely ridiculous you have the problem.

Your sarcasm is working against you here, Indy. I'm not sure what anyone would think is ridiculous about this. There aren't many motivations for a boy to dress and act like a girl and play sports against girls other than the fact that he genuinely feels better that way. There is no status to be won that way, no strokes and praise to be gotten. Being a transgirl in high school is a pretty fucking lonely thing to do.

I'm not sure what INDY's point is here? That she should play on the boys' team? Because if he was a high school boy, like all other high school boys he'd be welcoming and nice to her in the locker room?

And what of the line between a cinematic farce about boys that stuff cucumbers down their spandex to enhance their manhood and the real-life farce of boys that tuck their junk to deny their manhood and demand that everyone play along?

May I suggest a more apropos movie farce.

Instead of trading movie stills, this is the post you might want to address.

Somebody should tell that girlboy to quit playing around and act like a man, right?

Have you learned absolutely nothing at all in your time posting here?

I guess these are the consequences you were talking about. If gays were banned from marriage, or if Facebook hadn't offered options for self-identifying, maybe then trans* people wouldn't have the gall to try to play for their high school sports teams!

You're just trolling now to get a rise out of the rest of the posters in the thread, aren't you?

The audacity of those weird freaks trying to be themselves!!! How dare they crawl out of the shadows and let people know they exist! Our world was far better off pretending everyone fits the decades old male/female patterns.

The most powerful fear is fear of the unknown. And usually that fear turns to hatred. It's pretty much the source of most phobia's we have. Though I still find it weird calling it a phobia when it's really just people being assholes, but ah well...

Apparently life as a teenage transgender in California is not that lonely?

Decades? Millenniums would be more accurate.

We should ask the girl he displaced on the team who the asshole is.
