Not-so-trans athletes will compete in the Olympics

Nikki Hiltz qualified for the Paris Olympics in women's 1500-meter race, reports Jo Yurcaba for NBC. Hiltz is "transgender and nonbinary," but it's not a big deal because "they" are biologically female.


Quinn, a trans, nonbinary, bio-female, will compete on the Canadian women's soccer team.


"World Athletics, which oversees international track and field competition, adopted a policy last year that bars all trans women athletes who went through male puberty from competing in female track and field categories," writes Yurcaba. Nonbinary competitors are OK if they haven't received male hormones.

Nikki Hiltz is a biologically female runner who identifies as nonbinary and transgender.

Nobody cares if an athlete with a female body and female hormones chooses new pronouns. But, increasingly, "boys" are winning girls' track and field events, writes Angela Morabito of the Independent Women's Forum. In a few weeks in June, four boys-turned-girls became girls’ track champions. 


Schools will be required to "allow boys in girls' sports" and locker rooms and rest rooms under Education Department rules slated to go into effect on Aug. 1, she writes. The regulations declare that Title IX, which bans discrimination on the basis of sex, also bans discrimination on the basis of gender identity.


Riley Gaines is speaking out against expanding Title IX to include gender identity.

Swimmer Riley Gaines is campaigning "to protect women's sports and spaces" as part of the Our Bodies, Our Sports Coalition, she writes in The Tennessean. The Biden administration's version of Title IX would destroy women's sports, she writes.


"Just take a look at the world’s records for women’s and men’s competitions," she writes. "You’ll see that men are consistently faster and stronger than women, which gives men the edge in just about every sport. That’s why we have women’s teams and men’s teams in the first place: Because if we didn’t, women simply wouldn’t win and often wouldn’t even make the team."


Two federal courts have granted preliminary injunctions blocking the Title IX rule from taking effect in 10 states.


The U.S. Supreme Court's "Chevron" ruling could make it harder for the Education Department to expand Title IX to include transgender students, writes Mark Walsh in Education Week.


The court overturned a 1984 decision that told courts to defer to "federal agencies'  reasonable interpretations of statutes when those laws are 'silent or ambiguous,'” he writes.


A friend-of-the-court brief written last year by the Alliance Defending Freedom argues that the department's interpretation of Title IX rule is not reasonable. "The statute deals with discrimination on the basis of sex, not gender identity, and Title IX’s direct reference to a male-female binary excludes any gender identity interpretation.”a regulation about the distribution of federal impact aid."

"Walsh and Travis want to go back to those days even thought more than 70% of Americans do not."


Prove it.

"A December 2022 Quinnipiac University poll found that 68% of Americans supported same-sex marriage, while 22 percent opposed it. A September 2022 Grinnell College National Poll found that 74% of Americans believe same-sex marriage should be a guaranteed right while 13% disagreed and 13% were uncertain." from Wikipedia.


Now one should post a cite that shows that most Americans want to overturn Obergefell, Lawrence, or Griswold.


I just read that 2024 will be the first Olympics with as many female athletes as male athletes. How can that be true is trans athletes are killing women's sports?

"'He' has joined forces"? Riley Gaines is a woman. Did you even know that?

The problem with activist like Riley Gaines is that he has joined forces with right of center trolls who have been against anything that benefitted females since the original Title IX was based in the 1970's. Associating herself with such trolls, Gaines indirectly supports doing away with most girls sports because the girls are not as good as the boys. See everyone from Matt Walsh to Clay Travis on this. One cannot be worried about girls and then take money and support who cannot pass up any opportunity to insult women's performance, appearance, voice, or families.

How soon have amy forgotten that homosexuals were once considered mentally ill, not allowed to serve in the military, not allowed to marry, not allowed to be teachers, and whose sexual activity was criminalized. Walsh and Travis want to go back to those days even thought more than 70% of Americans do not


Gaines has aligned herself with a bunch of bigots who do not nor have ever had the interest of women as their goal other than to treat women as either sex objects or as an uterus with feet.
