(AllHipHop Rumors) Mack Beggs has people talking and according to Syracus.com, he is a champion. So why are people unhappy? Mack Beggs was born a girl, but has been taking testosterone to transition into a boy. And now, he is a he - not a she. However, they won’t let her wrestle boys so she ends up choking the chitterlings out of girls. Crazy! What should he do? He wants to wrestle boys but is legally prohibited. What can people do since testosterone clearly makes you stronger and more mannish. Kanye shrug. I realize this isn’t Hip-Hop or a rumor. Hopefully they don’t fire me again.
Here is the story from Syracuse.com.
Syracuse.comA transgender high school wrestler in Texas once again won a state title over the weekend and once again his victory brought a mix of cheers and jeers.
Mack Beggs, a transgender male, won his second straight state title in his girls wrestling weight class. Beggs, of Euless Trinity High School outside Dallas, was 36-0 for his season, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
The match was the last of Beggs' high school career.
Beggs was born a girl. His parents remember him considering himself a boy as early as age 3.
He began testosterone treatment as part of his gender transition over two years ago. It transformed his physical appearance and added muscle mass.
Since the testosterone comes from a doctor, it is not considered a banned substance, the Star-Telegram said.
But Beggs is required by rules to compete as a girl against girls, even though he's previously said he would rather wrestle boys. Beggs told The Dallas Morning News he's never cared about the public reaction to his matches.
"They're saying 'steroids.' They're saying, 'Oh, they're beating up on girls,' " Beggs said, according to the News. "It just comes down to technique and who has the most heart. In my heart, I am a champion. No matter who you put in front of me, I am a champion."
Kayla Fitts, one of Beggs' opponents during the weekend tournament, told the News she didn't think wrestling Beggs was fair. He was noticeably stronger, she said.
Fitts said Beggs should have waited until after high school to transition or quit the sport.
"I understand if you want to transition your gender," she said, according to the News. "I understand that totally. But there's a time and a place."
A wrestling parent filed a lawsuit last year to block Beggs from wrestling girls, but the suit it was dismissed.
Beggs said he'd like to wrestle in college against men, according to the Star-Telegram.
