Transgender Wrestler Mack Beggs Booed After Winning Texas Girls Title

Mack Beggs right shakes hands with Morton Ranch's Chelsea Sanchez before competing in the girls Class 6A 110-pound title bout during the UIL state wrestling championships Saturday

Beggs wants to wrestle boys and said he would if that law didn't exist.

The teen is hoping to pursue a career in wrestling, with the hope of taking up an out-of-state school scholarship and competing in the NCAA and, ultimately, the Olympics, where there are rules allowing for athletes to compete as the gender they identify with.

Last season, Beggs also defeated Sanchez, 12-1, in the girls Class 6A championship a year ago. He is allowed to take the testosterone, even though State and UIL rules prohibit their use by high school athletes, because they are "dispensed, prescribed, delivered and administered by a medical practitioner for a valid medical goal".

A Texas, transitioning, teen transgender wrestler won her second state title Saturday, which sparked further concern among parents and competitors over the competition's fairness. Though the UIL has said publicly that it has never received an official request from Beggs or his school asking to wrestle boys.

Mexican president's US visit shelved after testy Trump call
Mexican officials had been talking about a summit between Trump and Pena Nieto in the next few weeks, without specifying when. Trump's refusal to back down to Mexico on the border wall has been ongoing during his time as president.

Under Texas law, athletes are required to compete against other athletes who have the same gender on their birth certificates.

"The UIL is not in the gender-determining business and schools don't want to be either", UIL deputy director Jamey Harrison told the Associated Press. I put too much blood, sweat and tears.

Mack Beggs is a person in a very odd position.

"He has so much respect for all the girls he wrestles", Beggs' mother, Angela McNew told the AP. "It has more to do with skill and discipline than strength".

It's really, really hard", he told the Morning News, "but I'll do it.

"It sure as hell didn't stop me from doing what I wanted to do in the past, and it won't stop me from what I want to do in the future", Beggs said. It states that the state's high school athletics organization, the University Interscholastic League, can "declare a student ineligible for competition on the basis of steroid use" even if the student is taking the substances for "a valid medical goal". That didn't stop me from being who I was.

On Twitter, many commentators are saying it is unfair for an athlete who is taking testosterone to be competing in the female competition. To help with the process, Beggs underwent low-level shots of testosterone.

Beggs was born a girl. "This is what I worked for".
