Bill That Would Ban Biological Men From Women’s Sports Gets Bipartisan Support in Congress

“It is critical that the legacy of Title IX continues to ensure women and girls in sports have the opportunity to compete and excel on a level playing field”

You would think that fairness-obsessed college students would support this. What is the point of women’s sports if biological males can compete?

Campus Reform reports:

Bill to ban biological men from women’s sports gains bipartisan support in Congress

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) introduced legislation to ban biological males from participating in women’s sports.

Gabbard, a Democrat who ran for the 2020 presidential nomination for her party, is the sponsor of H.R. 8932, the “Protect Women’s Sports Act,” alongside Reps. Markwayne Mullin, (R-Okla.), Bill Flores (R-Texas), Bill Johnson (R-Ohio), Rep. Alexander Mooney (R-W.V.), and Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-S.C.).

The legislation aims “to provide that for purposes of determining compliance with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 in athletics, sex shall be determined on the basis of biological sex as determined at birth by a physician.”

In a joint press release with Mullin, Gabbard explained that Title IX “led to a generational shift that impacted countless women, creating life-changing opportunities for girls and women that never existed before.”

“However, Title IX is being weakened by some states who are misinterpreting Title IX, creating uncertainty, undue hardship and lost opportunities for female athletes,” continued the congresswoman from Hawaii. “Our legislation protects Title IX’s original intent which was based on the general biological distinction between men and women athletes based on sex.”

“It is critical that the legacy of Title IX continues to ensure women and girls in sports have the opportunity to compete and excel on a level playing field,” she added.

On the face of it sounds like a good update to the law

Calling this bipartisan is a bit of a trick. Tulsi Gabbard is not representative of the rest of her party. Sometimes she’s almost sane.

BUT THAT’S SEXIST.

The Communist Democrats taught me so!!!!!!!!!!!!

They’re going the wrong way with this. They should be opening the competition to include wild animals. How is it fair to exclude them???

How many years has this sort of science-defying corruption been tolerated at the cost of tearing down our culture? This sort of perversion is a gross violation of natural law.

What is the point of women’s sports if biological males can compete?

What is the point of women’s sports being forced onto universities where there’s no interest and they can’t afford the programs?

What is the point of women’s sports?

This is just using bad law to paper over another bad law. Title IX was and is an abomination because athletics have nothing to do with the purpose of a university. That college sports ended up dominating the academics at so many institutions is a travesty to begin with; that Congress then passed law so the little darlings could get some of the sweet scholarship gravy was a worse one.

    Exactly. The underlying problem is Title 9; this just fixes a hole in it.

    I was and remain a huge fan of Sarah Palin, but for me the first sign of clay feet was her enthusiastic support for Title 9 in her book; it seemed clear to me that she had not thought much about the issue and just supported it because it seemed nice, just as she had supported ridiculously strict anti-corruption laws that came back and bit her in the rear end.

The bill doesn’t matter. It’s just a shiny object to distract people from the unpleasant truth: If this fraudulent election is allowed to stand, then the United States has been overthrown.

It’s always the people that Dims are supposedly helping that get hurt the most.

All wimmin’s sports records will soon be held by men that retain meat and two veg but claim to be wimmin.

Homosexuals are being reduced to men that think they’re wimmin.

None of that compares to the Dim policies of keeping blacks impoverished and reliant on gummint handouts in return for their votes.

Next on the Dem/Prog wishlist is suspension of gravity act. Obviously, gravity favors biological males. Also, flight will be more efficient and use less fossil fuel.
