Policy allowing transgender athletes to compete as girls found to violate US law

Three biologically female high school students have challenged a Connecticut policy allowing transgender athletes to compete in girls’ sports. The US Education Department’s Office for Civil Rights has deemed the policy illegal, citing it has violated Title IX, the 1972 federal law that prohibits sex discrimination in programs that receive federal funding. A federal lawsuit is ongoing.

Also very funny that the lawyers in a federal court kept referring to the transgender athletes as boys, and the judge corrected them, so the lawyers struck a motion to have the judge dismissed from the suit.

About time. It's been such a slap in the face for bio female athletes. Where are all those feminists?

And a reminder to everyone here: transgenderism is more than a sexual identity, it is an ideology.

When will they pass the law that lying about your gender is illegal? "Tranies" are an insult to culture, society and basic scientific fact. There is no third , forth or two hundreth gender. There is just sane and insane.

I'm socially liberal, voting green because fuck Biden, but if you were born male you physically have more muscle mass, I don't think transitioning reduces a male's muscle mass to be equivalent to a female. so this would be very similar to doping. a trans athlete would have a distinctly unfair advantage. I suggest they try running a race against their birth gender to experiment with performance differences. if the trans people's performance has become significantly less, then an argument one way or the other can be crafted around the results of the experiment. science demands repeated experimentation.

A simple protest to help female athletics is for the whole male team to temporarily declare themselves as trans and sign up to run on the girls team. Surely that would put the plight of female athletics on the front page. And perhaps shut up the liberals. If trans want to compete as female or male and not of their birth gender, start a new category of athletes.

Trans + feminism don’t mix. Can’t have both.
