Critics are up in arms over a transgender wrestler's undefeated season due to the fact that he's only allowed to wrestle girls.

Mack Beggs, who has been transitioning into a male and taking testosterone for more than a year, won the state championship match of the girl's 110-pound weight class.

According to the Forth Worth Star-Telegram, parents aren't thrilled by the Texas teen's stellar 55-0 season, calling him a "cheater" for playing in the girls' tournament while so "beefed up."

Girls in the tournament have forfeited rather than face the 17-year-old on the mat, and the controversy reached a peak when Mack clinched the championship on Saturday.

Jackie Evancho Would 'Most Definitely' Still Sing For Donald Trump Despite His Rolling Back Of Transgender Rights! Girl, Why???

That's a nice sentiment — to do it for her country — but how can she support someone when he is so adamantly against the rights of Jackie's sister and other transgender people like her??? It doesn't really make sense.

Then again, Jackie is only 16, so maybe she can rethink and figure out her stance in the future.

It's obvious the teen feels strongly about transgender issues, however, as she tweeted at Drumpf on Wednesday asking to meet with him so she could tell him exactly how difficult it is for transgender students in schools.
