Man Stops Track Meet to Accuse 9-Year-Old Girl of Being Transgender

A children's track-and-field meet in Kelowna, British Columbia, was interrupted last week when a man allegedly accused a 9-year-old girl of being transgender. Last Thursday, the girl competing in the track meet in Kelowna was not transgender but sported a pixie haircut. The day, which started out optimistic as the girl placed in the discus event, turned dark when the man began accusing her of being transgender. The man at the Canada meet caused such a scene-even asking the girl's mother, Heidi Starr, for a certificate of proof that her daughter was female-that he was asked to leave, and the event was moved to a different area.

Starr said the man claimed that her daughter and another girl with short hair should be disqualified from competing. The event negatively impacted Starr's daughter, who shook and cried. According to the Central Okanagan School District statement, the man has been banned from future school events. (Newsweek)
