For decades the Democrats have pushed for equality for women and for creating a market for female sports both amateur and professional.
It was a noble effort as girls and women deserve to have their space to showcase their athletic ability against one another.
But recently a new Democrat trend has emerged. One that threatens to end the athletic endeavors of female athletes.
Democrats, and in particular those who identify as “woke” liberals, have pushed for transgender women, biological men, to be involved in female sports.
They say it is discrimination to not allow transgender athletes to compete but “the party of science” does not get that biological men have a distinct advantage.We have no issue with transgender athletes, but the majority of conservatives believe that they should compete against those who are biologically the same.
Transgender weightlifters, wrestlers, boxers, softball players, track athletes and others have a tremendous advantage against biological females.To that end, transgender athletes taking testosterone also have an advantage and should not be allowed to compete while on the hormones.
And lawmakers in Tennessee have finally decided to address the issue and introduce legislation to ensure biological girls have a fair chance.
“We are seeing more and more transgender athletes competing and posting victories in traditionally gendered sports competitions, and doing so to the detriment of girls and women biologically born female.
“Boys and men, due to testosterone levels, bigger bone structure, greater lung capacity, and larger heart size, have physical advantages in sports relative to girls and women,” State Rep. Bruce Griffey, who introduced the bill, said to The Tennessee Star,
The bill states that any school who does not have students compete against those who are the same biological sex would “immediately ineligible to continue to receive public funds of any type from this state or a local government.”
He said it is it is “fundamentally unfair” who biological females to compete against biological males when they are working towards college scholarships in their sport.
“With House Speaker Nancy Pelosi pushing through passage in the U.S. House of Representative HR 5 – the Equality Act – that, among other things, creates a civil right for male athletes to self-identify as females in sports competitions, I believe it is important for states to take a stand. This is what I seek to do through the filing of House Bill 1572,” he said.
“If this act becomes law, it would amend the 1964 Civil Rights Act to add gender identity and sexual orientation as protected statuses,” The Star said.
The Equality Act was passed by House Democrats, but has not shot of being passed by the Republican Senate or being signed by President Donald Trump.
