28 Congressional Democrats sign letter demanding Department Of Education allow biological males in girls’ sports

Share

Peter Hasson on June 18, 2020

Twenty-eight congressional Democrats signed a letter Wednesday condemning the Department of Education for ruling that public schools that allow biological males who identify as transgender to play girls’ sports are violating Title IX civil rights legislation.

Democratic Connecticut Sen. Richard Blumenthal joined 27 House Democrats in signing the letter, which charged that the department’s order “discriminates against transgender youth” by restricting girls’ sports to biological females.

“The decision of the Department of Education to issue a determination targeting transgender student athletes on the eve of Pride Month is not coincidental. It is a transparent example of their campaign against the rights and dignity of LGBTQ+ children,” Connecticut Rep. Jahana Hayes, the letter’s lead signer, said in a press release.

The DOE on May 15 issued a ruling stating that public schools that allow biological males into girls’ athletics are violating Title IX, which protects women’s access to education and athletics.

The Department of Justice previously backed a lawsuit filed by high school girls in Connecticut who said the liberal state’s transgender policies violated their rights.

Sports across the country are on hold due to the novel coronavirus, but biological males who identify as transgender have previously racked up accomplishments in female athletics.

Franklin Pierce University runner CeCe Telfer, for example, won an NCAA DII women’s track championship in May 2019. Telfer is a biological male who identifies as transgender.

University of Montana runner June Eastwood, a biological male who identifies as a transgender woman, was named the Big Sky Conference’s female athlete of the week in October 2019. Both Eastwood and Telfer previously competed on their university’s men’s team before switching to the women’s team.

Rachel McKinnon, a biological male who identifies as transgender, won women’s cycling world championships in both 2018 and 2019.

Wednesday’s letter isn’t the first instance of Democratic politicians arguing in favor of allowing biological males into female athletics.

Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar in February 2019 called for an investigation into USA Powerlifting for barring biologically male athletes from women’s events.

A piece of Democratic legislation called the Equality Act, which passed the House with unanimous support from Democrats, would require schools to allow biologically male athletes into girls’ sports, if the male athletes identify as transgender.

Former Vice President Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee, pledged to get the Equality Act passed into law within his first 100 days in office, if he wins the November election.

“Transgender equality is the civil rights issue of our time,” Biden wrote in a January tweet. “There is no room for compromise when it comes to basic human rights.”

    These people are insane. They are willing to discriminate against women born as biological females – shouldn’t biological females be considered a defined group that should have equal protection under the law?

    Dale there is no equal comparison boys have different strength and mind set due to testosterone. Women have estrogen. Two different hormones that identify with men muscle mass and strength estrogen is child bearing. There is no equalness. Women can not compete against men it is just no different then black can’t vote women can’t vote women don’t earn the same pay and remain the nurtur of a family. We are second to men and we alwayswill be.

    If Biological men are allowed to play in women!s sports, I would suggest that all real women not participate in those events. Maybe when only one or two biological men are the only ones competing, they will get the message.

    Are you demorats completely stupid? Did any of you pass Biology in high school? As if you didn’t know physically a male at birth will be a male no matter how many drugs and surgeries they have. What happens to the rights of the female when they are descriminated against because of your idiot ideas? You people have really lost your minds, how much is the lgbqxyz paying you?

    They are as evil as can be. When one looks at their evil and twisted faces one realizes how demonically possessed they truly are. The very height of arrogance and Godlessness to state that you who were created by God and do not create yourself can just decide you are another gender? This is just another, in a long list of steps to demoralize, bankrupt the soul and heart of the people of the US and bring about the downfall and total capitulation to One World Government, Religion, taxation and enslavement and the demise of at least 2 Billion people, as advocated by Bill Gates and his evil wife, Warren Buffet and the Abortion drivers of evil such as the Clintons, their worthless daughter, Soros, and crew, etc. etc. This worthless Senator is a disgusting menace to humanity. Lied about serving in Combat and being a Jew you would think he would be more sensitive to such evil. But he is ethnically Jewish certainly not by faith.

    A$$anine, eleminates the female gender, creates a second male society that gives males that cannot or will not compete with biological males a platform to excel and dominate in a female platform thus denying females the ability to compete fairly against females with the same physiological limitations. It is a proven scientific fact that biological males have different physiological attributes that give them advantages in physical endeavors.This is nothing but a political agenda to capture LGBTQ? votes.

    No where in sports does it say that you can’t handicap the participants. Since the Liberals want the mentally challenged and weak to be in female sports a compromise should be made. To participate participant shall be held back so many seconds or to start farther behind the others. Horse racing is handicapped with weights at the Jockey weigh in. So there is a precedence in handicapping.

    Pass a law stating sexually deviant democrats when having an affair have to have it with a biological male identifying as a female. That wouldn’t even work as they are probably already doing that.

    It’s an Abomination before God Almighty For one. Two allowing men who call themselves women to participate in women’s sports is an unequal playing field since men are naturally stronger then women. It’s basically cheating & biological Women don’t Stand a chance against men calling themselves women.

    Why should men of any sort be able to compete in Women sports. It doesn’t matter how they think they are. If they were born with a dick then it’s a man and should never be able to enter any kind of WOMEN sports. GOD Made MAN and HE MADE WOMAN ONLY. This is the most insane thing. Just remember one thing. By allowing this yo happen you are going totally against our CREATOR. You will have to answer to GOD on your judgement day. May GOD have mercy on ALL OF YOUR SOULS. Democrats remember all the wrong things you are trying to push on this wonderful AMERICA LAND OF THE FREE BECAUSE OF THE BRAVE.

    They may compete only if they agree to immediate physical castration prior to the event! No medical treatment or aid allowed! Otherwise, they can shut their damn mouths and compete as males! Otherwise, stay the frack out of the female locker rooms!

    So you are going to get rid of the Bible now. I think it is time to fire you democrats who work for us. I boycott paying these people and demand my money back for the last 12 years since you haven’t done your job. All you are doing is keeping good athletes from participating in sports and going against the Bible. Constitution means nothing to you people. I want to know what are you going to do for me cause you bend over backwards for everyone else. Oh that’s right I am just a white grandmother who believes in God, obeys the law, works hard for what I have raised my family right, so you just screw me over again. My life doesn’t matter to you because I love my country, history, flag, prayer, commandments and that doesn’t fit. So much for caring I will go right out and vote Democrat cause they do for me. NOT! Wonder why people are leaving your party. Can’t buy my vote.

    .Case against transgender males competing against females.

    recent SCOTUS ruling now give men who THINK they’re women access to female locker rooms, showers, and make it a sex discrimination crime for females to complain about having to undress/dress in front of men.

    For once, I agree. Nothing would give me greater pleasure than to see guys, who want to claim they are girls, compete against biological girls. I mean, it hasn’t been since I last watch the Exorcist, where I could actually witness the metoo morons’ heads spinning around. These girly boys should also get the college athletic scholarships, that would have gone to female college athletes, with the proper plumbing. Ya, I plan on selling tickets to these events.
