CYPRESS, Texas -- A 17-year-old transgender boy completed an undefeated season Saturday by winning a controversial Texas state girls' wrestling title in an event clouded by criticism from those who believe the testosterone he's taking as he transitions from female to male created an unfair advantage.

The family of Mack Beggs has said he would rather be wrestling boys, but state policy calls for students to wrestle against the gender listed on their birth certificates. So Beggs, a junior from Euless Trinity, beat Chelsea Sanchez 12-2 in the 110-pound weight class to improve to 56-0 and earn the championship.

That story has happened many times over the last 100 years... Not sure why it's news now... ?

I feel like someone needs to apologize to everyone involved. The, um, fellow takes massive amounts of hormones, which makes him more or less the equivalent of a Soviet Womens' Weightlifting Team entry in the field of female wrestlers. He wants to wrestle with his proper gender, males, where the challenges will be real and frankly more balanced, but he is not allowed to. So he gets an asterisk next to his name in the female competitions, the girls who should not have to wrestle a hormone monster get losses in their columns, and the men who win in the same division get asterisks next to their names because they never had to face Mack Beggs.

This is a no brainer. Let Mack wrestle the boys.

People need to just STOP being so concerned about genitalia.

Maybe since the 60's but I doubt there was much access to synthetic androgens before that. You should look at the picture. "She" looks like a very fit teenage guy

Yes, you would think about 2 or 3 matches into the season some league official would have called a meeting. It is stupid.

There have been manly women since the beginning of time. I'm pretty sure she would have won regardless.

I bet she gained 15 pounds of muscle on androgens.

Gay women have dominated female athletics since day 1 (without drugs).... Why do you suppose that is ?

Maybe she should be banned for using performance enhancing drugs ? Taking pills doesn't make you a man.... what if a man decides to be a woman... should Caitlyn freakshow be allowed to wrestle women ?

While it wasn't wrestling, that ship sailed long ago.
