In the state of Massachusetts, a biological male is allowed to play in female high school sports due to the “equal play act”. This past week we saw this in action when a male student was participating in girls field hockey in a match between Swampscott and Dighton-Rehoboth.

In a frightening scene the Swampscott male athlete is seen taking a shot and hitting the Dighton-Rehoboth female athlete square in the face. This resulted in several broken teeth and other “significant facial and dental injuries”.

Kelsey Bain, who is one of the captains of the Dighton-Rehoboth field hockey team released a three page statement pleading for change of this “equal play act”. She states, “There will always be significant numbers of boys and men who would beat the best girls and woman in head-to-head competition. Claims to the contrary are simply a denial of science”.

Her full statement regarding the situation is embed below.
