A girls’ basketball game between two Massachusetts schools made waves earlier this month after one team forfeited against their opponent, which had a biological male who identifies as a female on the court, a source told Fox News Digital.

The Collegiate Charter School of Lowell forfeited against KIPP Academy, which resides in Lynn, Massachusetts, at halftime. KIPP was leading the game 31-14, but the game goes into the record as a 10-0 win.

A video circulated online on Monday showing one player for the Collegiate Charter wrestling for a rebound with the biological male athlete from KIPP Academy.
Okay do you know how many injuries happen on the courts?
Just look at UConn's Women's basketball team, how many do they have out for injuries? As far as I know they haven't played against a trans player.

On the NIH Library of Medical an article in the Journal of Athletic Training had back in 2021 said,


Frequent inspection of sports-related injury epidemiology among National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) women's basketball student-athletes is valuable for identifying injury-related patterns.

Emerging patterns in epidemiology of NCAA women's basketball injuries are unknown though general sports medicine practices, and playing rules and regulations have evolved in recent years.


Injuries by Season Segment

A total of 876 preseason injuries (national estimate: 19 261), 2046 regular season injuries (national estimate: 46 013), and 58 postseason injuries (national estimate: 1586) were reported between 2014–2015 and 2018–2019 (Table 2). Preseason injury rates were significantly higher than regular season (IRR = 1.41; 95% CI = 1.31, 1.53) and postseason injury rates (IRR = 3.12; 95% CI = 2.39, 4.07). Incidence trajectories of injuries by season segment across the study period are presented in Figure B. Preseason injury rates were similar from 2014–2015 to 2015–2016, had a notable decline in 2016–2017 that was similar to 2017–2018, followed by a sharp increase during the 2018–2019 season. Regular season injury rates decreased between 2014–2015 and 2016–2017 and subsequently increased during the 2017–2018 and 2018–2019 seasons. Postseason injury rates increased between 2014–2015 and 2015–2016 and decreased thereafter over the remainder of the study period.

Now out of thousands and thousands of injuries, one, that’s one injury by a trans woman! And they want to ban us. I don’t know about you but I have seen many, many 6 foot cis-women so just because a trans woman is six foot I don’t think that it gave her a unfair advantage.

  1. good they should I don't think trans women should play against biological females. We are stronger, faster, and more powerful.
