The House passes sweeping legislation to expand LGBTQ civil rights but GOP lawmakers worry it may threaten the rights of women.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy: “Democrats are attempting to erase the decades of progress women have achieved in athletics programs. Protecting Title IX shouldn’t be partisan. Democrats denied girls and women their own space in sports and demonstrated another way they want to politicize every aspect of Americans’ lives.”
“Essentially, the reason Title IX was even created was to give girls and women a separate space to compete, but HR 5 allows men and boys to compete on women’s sports teams, use their locker rooms, etc.”
The Senate will reject this insane bill, and, if not, the President will surely veto it.
The Democratically controlled House of Representatives voted Friday 236-173 in favor of the Equality Act, which would require schools to include male athletes who identify as transgender girls on female sports teams.
The bill amends the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to make “sexual orientation and gender identity” protected characteristics under federal anti-discrimination law.
Among other things, that would force public schools to expand female athletic teams to include biological males who identify as transgender girls.
Republican Florida Rep. Greg Steube introduced a last-minute amendment to the bill that would have preserved Title IX’s protections of female athletic teams, but Democrats rejected it. More
Most Americans don’t want a nationwide bathroom requirement, health care mandate, or “preferred pronoun” law based on gender identity, but congressional Democrats seem to think it’s time to impose them.
Nancy Pelosi delivered on her promise to introduce the so-called Equality Act, which would elevate sexual orientation and gender identity to protected classes in federal anti-discrimination law.
Although that may sound nice in theory, in practice sexual orientation and gender identity policies at the state and local level have caused profound harms to Americans from all walks of life.
The Democrats are for males taking titles, trophies, and scholarships away from girls? This will only lead to women no longer wanting to compete in “women’s” sports. Great job, idiots.
I am completely opposed to the Equality Act. I don’t care how much makeup or how many dresses and wigs a man puts on, he still has XY chromosomes and is still a man. Do we still believe in science in this country or what? Look, if this is how these people want to live, fine, but don’t mandate that I accept it and force me to tolerate their delusions.
But remind me again who’s waging the war on women? Just add this to the mountain of evidence that liberals are insane and have completely lost touch with middle American voters. 2020 is shaping up to be an electorate slaughter for the Democrats.
