The House of Representatives passed a bill on Thursday that will protect women’s sports leagues by prohibiting male athletes who identify as women from being able to compete against females. It’s utterly ridiculous that this sort of thing is even necessary in a so-called technological and scientific age like the one we are currently living in, but hey, welcome to the hellscape progressivism creates.
According to a report published by The Daily Wire, “The Protection of Women and Girls in Sports Act of 2023 would amend Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 such that recipients of federal financial assistance which operate sports leagues cannot ‘permit a person whose sex is male to participate in an athletic program or activity that is designated for women or girls.’ The legislation passed with 219 affirmative votes, all of which came from Republicans, and 203 negative votes, all of which came from Democrats.”
“The Democrats have gone to great lengths to call this bill extreme. The Democrats have gone to great lengths, being almost hysterical, to call this bill discriminatory,” Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC), the chairwoman of the House Education and Workforce Committee, went on to say in a floor speech she delivered on Wednesday. “It’s quite telling when the other party attempts to tear things down without offering an alternative vision. Democrats refuse to posit a reason for allowing biological men to compete in women’s sports that comports with principles of athletic competition.”
So you know that whole “war on women” junk that radical leftists are always being shrill about? Yeah, it turns out, they are the ones who are waging war against biological females, attempting to completely and utterly erase them from the cultural and societal landscape by affirming that biological men make better ladies than biological females and allowing them to compete against them in sports, knowing full well that all of the physical advantages are on the side of the dude who is full of testosterone, larger muscle mass, and dense bone structure.
Those who are critics of allowing transgender male athletes to compete against women in sports leagues have made the exact same point I just did above.
“The phenomenon has dominated headlines in recent years: track athlete CeCe Telfer won an NCAA women’s national championship after competing with fellow men in the previous season, transgender swimmer Lia Thomas tied with female champion Riley Gaines and was honored by ESPN for a women’s history month segment, and MMA fighter Fallon Fox was accused of breaking multiple female opponents’ skulls after he began to compete as a woman,” the Daily Wire said.
The report continued, “Democrats nevertheless claimed that the Protection of Women and Girls in Sports Act is discriminatory in nature. Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), who previously served as Speaker of the House, said in another floor speech that she opposed the bill because ‘trans kids are all God’s children” and belong “in sports, in schools, in books, in families, and on teams.'”
The protection of Women and Girls in SPorts Act now goes to a vote in the Senate, which is very narrowly controlled by Democrats at the moment. Earlier this week, the White House put out a veto notice, stating that President Joe Biden would oppose the bill.
“Schools, coaches, and athletic associations around the country are already working with families to develop participation rules that are fair and that take into account particular sports, grade levels, and levels of competition,” the notice explained. “At a time when transgender youth already face a nationwide mental health crisis, with half of transgender youth in a recent survey saying they have seriously considered suicide, a national law that further stigmatizes these children is completely unnecessary, hurts families and students, and would only put students at greater risk. Discrimination has no place in our nation’s schools or on our playing fields.”
The White House caused quite a stir when senior officials recently participated in several Transgender Day of Visibility events after a woman, who identified herself as a man shot and killed three adults and three children at a Christian school in Nashville, Tennessee. The president has shown an immense lack of decorum and human decency by not visiting with the families of the victims, though he’s hosting three Tennessee Democrats who were kicked our and almost expelled from the state’s General Assembly for violating floor rules by hosting a gun control protest.
“Democrats have also opposed state-level measures to outlaw sex change procedures for minors, noting the permanent damage that surgeries and cross-sex hormones can inflict upon patients. Other bills passed by conservative-leaning states prohibit sexually explicit drag shows in public or near children,” the report concluded.
