Washington DC and The Holy Land>234 of 235 House Dems co-sponsor bill forcing schools to let males compete as females
CasselGotPeedOn 11:50 AM 04-11-2019
Every House Democrat but one has co-sponsored a bill requiring schools to allow male athletes who identify as transgender girls to compete on female sports teams.

Democrats’ Equality Act would amend the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to make “sexual orientation and gender identity” protected characteristics under federal anti-discrimination law. Among other things, the bill would force public schools to expand female athletic teams to include biological males who identify as transgender girls.

Sarah Warbelow, director of the left-wing Human Rights Campaign, praised the bill’s impact on high school sports in written testimony submitted to a House subcommittee on Tuesday.

“Opponents of equality in athletics for transgender athletes have argued that girls who are transgender have unfair physiological advantages over cisgender girls and as a result, will dominate women’s competitive sports,” Warbelow wrote, calling it not “rooted in fact” that biologically male athletes will outperform their female counterparts.

House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler, a Democrat from New York, made a similar argument during an April 2 hearing his committee held on the legislation.

“Many states have sexual orientation and gender identity nondiscrimination laws, and all of them still have women’s sports. Arguments about transgender athletes participating in sports in accordance with their gender identity having competitive advantages have not been borne out,” Nadler said in his opening statement.

In Connecticut, one of the states to which Nadler was referring, two male runners have dominated girls’ high school track. A female competitor called the male runners’ advantage “demoralizing.”

Julia Beck, the head of a self-described radical feminist organization, testified against the bill.

The Democrats’ bill would lead to a male invasion of female spaces, including on the athletic field, Beck said in her April 2 testimony. “Men will dominate female sports,” she warned.

Of the 235 Democrats in the House, 234 have co-sponsored the legislation. (That’s not counting Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico’s non-voting representatives, who also signed on as co-sponsors.)

Reps. John Katko of New York and Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania are the only House Republicans to co-sponsor the bill.

Illinois Rep. Dan Lipinski, the only pro-life Democrat left in the House, is also the only one in his party not co-sponsoring the Equality Act.

If Jamaal Charles could compete in the Special Olympics....

Ok, not really. Don't know a thing about this bill, and not sure if you loons are being purposefully misleading, but men to women Trans persons should not compete with women.

Are you fucking kidding?

Trans kids have enough issues without us piling on. That's a fact.

Telling girls that males can absolutely destroy them in girls sports is asinine and patently unfair.

Both statements are 100% true.

Stopped reading at the lead-in lie.

“Many states have sexual orientation and gender identity nondiscrimination laws, and all of them still have women’s sports. Arguments about transgender athletes participating in sports in accordance with their gender identity having competitive advantages have not been borne out,” Nadler said in his opening statement.

Pretty sure they have women's sports because they are required to, and the competitive advantage part is a total lie.

Which of course leads to what the original article describes. With no recourse for states.

Gender identity is an entirely made up concept.

Also, since leftists say biological sex is ALSO a made up concept I think we should abolish all female sports. I mean why have them? All they do is discriminate against men. Women can, for the most part, already compete in 'male' sports which are usually unisex by rule.

So if gender and sex don't exist, how does having sports that only allow ONE sex/gender to participate make sense?

Also, I think people with dissociative personality disorder should be allowed one vote for every personality.

The thing about incoherent nonsense is that it's eventually self refuting.

FACT: If passed, the Equality Act would force public schools to allow transgender individuals who identify as female to compete in sports with biological girls.

A leading feminist thinks you're a dipshit and wants to kick you in the balls (assuming you have any):
