Joe Biden’s first day in office delivered an incremental victory for transgender athletes seeking to participate as their identified gender in high school and college sports.Humans:
"Wait, so women now have to compete with 'women' with an innate unfair physical advantage..? How is that fair?"
More to the point, what does it look li...
...the two transgender runners at the center of that case said in court filings that being able to run against girls was central to their wellbeing.
Yes, a guaranteed win is pretty good for one's wellbeing, I'd imagine...
An early test case of Biden’s order may come in Montana, where on Thursday the state’s house judiciary commission voted by a 11-8 margin to advance a bill to the house floor that would prohibit transgender students from participating on school sports teams of the gender with which they identify.
There's only three people without any common sense on that committee? Pretty good odds!
State representative Robert Farris-Olsen, who joined all committee Democrats in opposition, said that passing the bill would violate the right to privacy enshrined in the state constitution and could mean Montana would lose federal education funding, which amounted to $484m in the last fiscal year.
“Not only do we run afoul of the US and Montana constitutions, we also potentially risk all of our federal funding for education in Montana by passing this law,” Farris-Olsen said.
Added Chase Strangio, the ACLU’s deputy director for transgender justice: “Right now lawmakers are not only voting on trans lives but threatening the state’s federal funding.”
I'm sure Sleepy Joe will ride to your rescue. Over the broken bodies of women competitors.
