Selina’s mother, Stanescu, told The Daily Signal that she has done “everything that I thought would be possible to help this and just open a conversation” about what’s happened in Connecticut and what could happen should Congress pass the Equality Act.
“The doors have been shut over and over again,” Stanescu said. “People are afraid to speak.”I can write a four-page essay, but a picture is worth a thousand words, right?
I would also point out that the athlete willing to speak out still hasn't quite learned her lesson:
“I have friends in school who are transgender and I know when they are struggling to come out or deciding to come out, I was there supporting them,” she said. “And when they were freshly out, I was caring towards them. I was never rude or disrespectful.”
But the situation in sports has “nothing to do with their gender identity and how they feel,” Selina said. “It has to do with what is right and what is fair in athletics.”
Looking forward to her senior year, Selina said she hopes to run track in college. She referred to the long jump event as her “safe haven” where “the results were fair no matter what, because it was girls competing against girls.”
“But now, unfortunately,” she said with a disappointed look on her face, “one of those athletes has started to compete in long jump. So now none of my events are safe.”As long as she keeps supporting and encouraging people who are mentally ill and mutilate their bodies as they succumb to their mental illness, she will continue to get the same result. But she's young. She still has plenty of time to learn.
