A Trinity High School wrestler caused a hullabaloo among their fellow students’ parents in Euless, Texas, after she began taking testosterone, prompting many parents to assert unfairness in her competing against other female athletes not taking hormones.
Trinity senior Mack Beggs is biologically female but started on hormones when she was 15 years old, according to Fox6Now.
Public criticism of Beggs began when a female wrestler’s father filed a lawsuit in 2017 in an attempt to prevent Beggs from competing against other girls, alleging her artificially elevated testosterone levels are not fair.
Beggs has been injecting herself with testosterone shots for roughly three years.
However, she maintains she’s taking a minimal amount her doctor prescribed and therefore should be allowed to compete.
