    EXCLUSIVE: Parents Outraged After Trans-Identifying Boy Wins Girls’ Irish Dancing Competition, Heads to Worlds

    irish.jpg

    FIRST ON THE DAILY SIGNAL: A teenage boy who identifies as a girl is heading to the Irish Dancing World Championships after placing first in the U14 2023 Southern Region Oireachtas competitions. Parents of girls competing in Irish dance are frustrated and outraged, saying that they cannot understand why a boy with physical advantages is allowed to dance against their daughters.

    “Oh, my gosh. It’s going to make me cry,” said one mother, whose daughter danced in the same competition as the trans-identifying boy in the Dallas, Texas, event. “I never thought I was going to have to deal with this. And my heart breaks for my daughter and the other girls that are having to deal with this. They are too young to have to deal with topics that are going on in society, that are adult topics, that they don’t quite comprehend yet.”

    “They just look at it as unfair,” she added emotionally. “And it’s really hard to explain to them what’s going on and why they have to accept it. That’s what society’s making them do. As a mom, I want to be an advocate for my daughter. But at the same time, I have to protect my family.”

    The Daily Signal has chosen not to name or picture the boy who won the U14 dance competition since he is a minor. Dance results show that the child formerly competed as a boy and placed 11th in the world in the Coimisiún Le Rincí Gaelacha (CLRG) World Championships in April 2023.

    The boy’s social media includes the preferred pronouns “she/her” and pictures of the child at Irish dancing competitions depict him wearing the typical dance attire for girls, including dresses, makeup, and wigs. Results show that the boy finished first out of 100 dancers in the early December girls’ U14 competition, making him both a world qualifier and a national qualifier.

    He dances with the Inis Cairde School of Irish Dance, which did not respond to requests for comment, nor did his teacher. The boy’s mother did not respond to requests for comment via her purported social media accounts.

    In a video reviewed by The Daily Signal of the boy winning the U14 girls competition on Sunday, girls in the background can be seen with jaws dropped, looking at one another when they realize that he has been declared the winner.

    “My daughter was in absolute tears,” shared the mother whose daughter competed against the boy last weekend. Her daughter was unaware he was a boy until he received first place and word spread like wildfire throughout the competition, she said. “She was like, ‘This is so unfair.’ I totally agree.”

      I feel sad for someone who's that mentally unbalanced that they get that upset over a kids dancing competition, and then admits to that in public.

        Not as mentally unbalanced as someone who gets upset when they aren't called their preferred pronoun or threaten someone will go home in an ambulance because a is man LARPing as a woman. The Left will defend that violence is acceptable "to be fair" if someone is "rude" enough to point out a person's biology.

          The Left considers abortion, mutilating someone else's children, critical pedagogy of the children of others, and the general destruction of bourgeoisie culture sacred. So yes, technically.

            I'm sure the parents of the other participants were just thrilled.

                Because a dude who wants to wear dresses and dance in a girls' competition is completely in his right mind.

                  Well that's one way to get to be with a bunch of girls. smiley dirtyflirt.gif

                  Me? I took typing in 9th grade. Room full of girls (including half the cheerleading squad) and just two guys.

                  And no need to wear a dress.

                    Yup - you and I have reminisced on this point in the past --- being the ONLY dude in a room of 29 girls was downright enjoyable.

                        I want your corporate number to report how I was screaming obscenities and kicking displays over throwing a fit because nobody played along with my charade.

                          More like "Excuse me sir, this isn't a Wendy's so you can't just pay $500 after you burn the place down because you're throwing tantrum after I wouldn't play make believe with you."

                            That's kind of my take. On this issue it is not a case of a male overpowering girls to win a competition. It's dancing.

                            Maybe they let him win to be "inclusive" and if that is the case it is wrong. But if he was the better dancer, so be it.

                              One of the things the parents complained about was the "physical advantage".

                              I love Irish dancing, and know it's incredibly physically demanding, but I honestly don't know enough about the physiology to know that a boy would have an advantage here - like we know in swim or other sports, there would most definitely be a physical advantage.
