White House Sends a Message to Female Athletes Forced to Compete Against Transgender Opponents; Push to Exclude Trans Students From Sports in Some States After Biden's Pro-LGBT Orders, and related stories

White House Sends a Message to Female Athletes Forced to Compete Against Transgender Opponents:
As biologically male athletes are given the blessing of the White House to compete against females in women’s sports, White House press secretary Jen Psaki affirmed Tuesday that one group in the debate has rights.
Psaki was asked Tuesday if President Joe Biden has “a message for local school officials on dealing with these kind of disputes that are already starting to arise between, you know, trans girls who are competing and cis girls, and a level playing field? Particularly in high school sports, when it leads to college scholarships, is there any kind of messaging or clarification that the White House wants to give on the executive order?”
“I would just say that the President’s belief is that trans rights are human rights, and that’s why he signed that executive order. And in terms of the determinations by universities and colleges, I’d certainly defer to them,” she said.
Since Biden’s executive order bans discrimination on the basis of “gender identity,” it can be reasonably determined it will then lead to the inclusion of men who identify as women onto the sports’ teams of their choosing, given that this is one of the most oft-cited examples of gender discrimination. --->READ MORE HERE
Push to exclude trans students from sports in some states after Biden's pro-LGBT orders:
Lawmakers across the United States are pushing to exclude some transgender students from sports after President Joe Biden signed pro-LGBT orders.
Proposals that call for athletes to compete based on their biological sex have been introduced or considered in at least 17 states this year, according to the American Civil Liberties Union and Human Rights Campaign. Some of the bills would specifically ban students assigned male at birth from playing on girl's sports teams.
"Single-sex athletics is rooted in the reality of biological differences between the sexes and is rooted in objective biological fact and fairness," one bill in New Hampshire states.
But LGBT advocates have fired back, arguing against the "discriminatory" proposals. --->READ MORE HERE
