Biden: Undermining women’s sports, privacy, and safety

By Robert G. Marshall ( bio - articles - email ) | Jan 28, 2021

Joe Biden noted on his presidential campaign website: “On his first day in office, Biden will reinstate the Obama-Biden guidance revoked by the Trump-Pence Administration, which will restore transgender access to sports, bathrooms, and locker rooms in accordance with their gender identity.” During the campaign he stated there should be “no discrimination” against 8-year-olds who want to “change” their gender.

President Trump had stopped the Obama-Biden trans-sex policies compelling all public elementary and secondary schools and colleges to see that “transgender students … participate in such activities and access such facilities consistent with their gender identity.”

Problem

On January 20, Inauguration Day, Biden issued an executive order to “prevent and combat discrimination on the basis of gender identity or sexual orientation, and to fully enforce Title VII and other laws that prohibit discrimination on the basis of gender identity or sexual orientation.”

Biden’s policy will remove sports scholarships and other life-advancement opportunities from young women or girls and allow men or boys who “identify” as women to gain the upper hand and jeopardize the personal safety of women.

Will President Biden console parents when their 115 pound daughter is run over by a 210 pound guy “transitioning” to “female” playing on a “girls” soccer, lacrosse or basketball team, or when their daughter is sexually assaulted in a unisex locker, as has happened? Why subject women and girls to such abuse?

A 2019 Washington Post article quoted eighteen-time Tennis Grand Slam winner Martina Navratilova, Duke Law School professor and track star Doriane Coleman, and NBC Sports analyst and four-time Olympic gold medalist Sanya Richards-Ross strongly disagreeing with Biden’s “unisex” sports mandate:

Title IX…requires educational institutions that receive federal money to provide separate programs and opportunities for females based on sex…because sex segregation is the only way to achieve equality for girls and women in competitive athletics….
Sport…is a public space where the relevance of sex is undeniable, and where pretending that it is irrelevant…will cause the very harm Title IX was enacted to address.…
The evidence is unequivocal that starting in puberty, in every sport except sailing, shooting and riding, there will always be significant numbers of boys and men who would beat the best girls and women in head-to-head competition. Claims to the contrary are simply a denial of science.

Students who value personal privacy who do not want to disrobe in front of men (who identify as women or vice versa) or take showers with them will undoubtedly be called bigots and hate-mongers, but Biden’s policy will absolutely increase sexual assaults on women.

Does Joe Biden remember reciting the words of the Lord’s Prayer, “…lead us not into temptation…” when he attended St. Paul’s Catholic Elementary School during the 1950s in Scranton, Pennsylvania?

One Solution

Citizens can stop President Biden’s attempt to threaten women and overrule Nature by contacting Members of the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate to demand that no tax money be spent to implement Biden’s anti-woman Executive orders.

A president’s Executive Order cannot take effect without federal funds. Both parties have regularly restricted using federal dollars; some examples of which follow:

  • Cut off military funding which halted the American support of the Vietnam war which led to the Fall of Saigon in 1975;
  • Prohibit Medicaid funding of abortion on demand via the Hyde Amendment in 1976;
  • Prohibit funds to assist anti-communists to overthrow the Communist government in Angola in 1975-76;
  • Prohibit federal monies from paying for abortion in the District of Columbia, and the Military in the late 1970‘s (Rep. Dornan);
  • Banned the use of tax funds to assist Contra rebel groups from overthrowing the Nicaraguan government in 1982.

The “transgender” agenda is encroaching at a record pace. The British Broadcasting Corporation had an “education” presentation for school children between ages 9 and 12, claiming there are “over 100 genders.”

Joe Biden gave federal agencies 100 days to impose his transgender mandate on America! Those who oppose this policy can ask their like-minded neighbors and family members to contact their own federal representatives and senators to demand that no tax dollars be used to implement Biden’s “transgender” mandates in our elementary and secondary schools and colleges.

    I suppose that writing letters to congressmen works in some districts, but of the dozens of letters to legislators that I have sent during the last 40+ years, I have yet to receive a single reply that addressed the specific concerns in my letters. Donald Trump, on the other hand, did immediately address my concerns, not with written replies, but with actions: abortion, foreign relations, immigration policy, the U.S. Constitution, military policy, carbon sequestration, assault on religion, etc.
