Two Republicans join Democrats to co-sponsor bill mandating that schools let males compete on girls sports teams.
Democrats’ Equality Act would amend the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to make “sexual orientation and gender identity” under federal anti-discrimination law.
What a huge slap in the face to women in sports. This is the Democrat Socialist war on women! They own it now.
234 House Democrats, Two Republicans Co-Sponsor Bill Forcing Schools To Let Male Athletes Compete On Girls’ Sports Teams https://t.co/BhU6gRD9so

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.

This concept is so wrong on so many levels because it completely destroys any young teenage girls hope to compete on a fair level playing field which is a basic concept of sports competition and good sportsmanship.
This will be the end of girls sports. It has already been proven that allowing that, means no girl will ever win at sports, again.
Just a question but have the Dems thought how this will go over with parents of female athletes in middle school or highschool who often are up before dawn to take girls to gymnastic or soccer or Track practice now to see like in track Male athletes dominate girls sports.

I honestly believe people should be able to live as they wish, but this is incredibly unfair to female athletes. I simply do not understand how this is right/ethical/fair.
