Biden Destroys Women’s Sports

AMAC Exclusive – By Katie Sullivan

Earlier this month, 9.9 million people tuned in to watch the NCAA Women’s March Madness final between the LSU Tigers and the Iowa Hawkeyes – the most ever for a women’s college basketball game. Yet despite enormous advancements for girls’ and women’s sports in recent years, an ongoing effort by the Biden administration to radically rewrite Title IX protections in accordance with transgender ideology could undo decades of progress while stealing opportunities from female athletes.

Title IX is the shorthand used to refer to a section of civil rights law enacted in 1972 which prohibits sex-based discrimination in any school or educational entity that receives funding from the federal government. In addition to providing more avenues for legal recourse for female victims of sexual harassment and sexual assault in schools and on college campuses, Title IX also led to a drastic expansion of athletic opportunities for women and girls. Thousands of girls have earned college scholarships thanks to Title IX.

Now, however, the Biden administration has proposed an amendment to Title IX that expands the definition of “sexual discrimination” to include gender identity. In effect, this means that schools could not deny a biological male who identifies as transgender the opportunity to compete on women’s sports teams.

The rule would apply to any school receiving federal funds, including any type of student loans – an extremely broad criteria that would cover virtually every school from kindergarten through college.

Notably, the new rule does make an exception for cases where schools believe allowing a biological male to compete against females would create a significant possibility of physical harm for students. However, the administration creates no such carve out for cases where female students feel uncomfortable sharing locker room facilities or overnight lodgings with biologically male students.

The Biden administration – as well as the transgender activists pushing this and other related policies – also make no mention of the psychological harm done to girls by allowing and even celebrating male students participating in and in many instances dominating women’s sports at the expense of female athletes.

Such was the case earlier this year with Lia Thomas, a swimmer at the University of Pennsylvania who competed on the men’s team from 2017 to 2020 as William Thomas before “coming out” as transgender and competing on the women’s team from 2021-2022. When competing against other males, Thomas ranked in the mid-500s nationally. After “transitioning,” however, Thomas’s ranking soared to within the top 10 and he shattered several women’s records on his way to a 2022 women’s national title in the 500-yard freestyle.

Along the way, Thomas kept other hard-working female athletes off the podium, including Riley Gaines, a University of Kentucky swimmer whom Thomas tied for 5th in the 200-yard NCAA freestyle championship last year. Despite the fact that Thomas never should have been competing in the race to begin with, NCAA officials awarded the 5th-place trophy to Thomas.

Since then, Gaines has spoken out publicly against allowing biological males to compete in women’s sports, arguing that we must “defend and protect America’s daughters against the woke left and their gender-denying ideology.”

Other athletes and high-profile sports figures have also come out against allowing biological males who identify as women to compete against biological females. Late last month, Canadian power lifter Avi Silverberg made a public mockery of such policies by entering the Alberta women’s power lifting competition and dominating the field, shattering the women’s bench press record.

ESPN personalities Sam Ponder and Sage Steele have also backed Gaines’s stance. “This would take away so many opportunities for biological women and girls in sports,” Ponder tweeted in reference to Biden’s proposed changes to Title IX. “It is a shame that we are needing to fight for the integrity of Title IX in 2023 and the reason it was needed in the first place. #savewomensports.”

House Republicans joined in the fight last week by passing the Protection for Women and Girls in Sports Act, a bill which, if enacted, will ban biological males from competing on women’s sports teams. The bill passed the House along complete partisan lines, with every Republican in support and every Democrat opposed.

Rep. Greg Steube (R-FL), the bill’s sponsor, stated, “Congress in 1972 created Title IX to protect women’s sports to enable women to have an equal playing field in athletics. In worship to their trans idols, the administration wants to flip that on its head. It is insane.”

Predictably, the White House has strongly opposed the bill, claiming that it “targets” transgender students and even falsely suggesting that it prevents trans-identifying athletes from competing in sports at all.

For Biden, it seems, the interests of women and girls come secondary to those of his far-left activist base.

Katharine “Katie” Sullivan was as an Acting Assistant Attorney General and a senior advisor to the White House Domestic Policy Council under President Trump. She previously served 11 years as a state trial court judge in Colorado.

Easy solution have the males that say they are female start their own league. Let them compete against one another. Just because in their mind they think they are female their DNA is still male.
They are more powerful than biological women. It is therefore fair to compete against their own trans self.

Sleepy Joe and his globalist comrades are getting closer every day to establishing their one-world government agenda. Destroy America and build back socialist. This has nothing to do with sports equality or the sex of the players. It is all about the power to destroy the American way of life by the Godless, evil socialists.

Senator Sinema is my Senator and I messaged her the following:

Please vote for the Protection of Women and Girls in Sports Act. Women can be injured by a biological man. Trans women cannot change their height or their strength making it unfair to and unsafe for women. An example is that there is a difference in baseball and softball fields and the net is higher in men’s and women’s volleyball nets, etc. 

This bill is NOT ANTI-TRANS ITS PRO-WOMEN. 

TITLE IX was fought so hard for as to NOT DISCRIMINATE AGAINST WOMEN. As a woman, please remember that when voting for this bill.

I am so disgusted with Biden, his administration and Democrats for their support of the transgender community over women in this particular issue!! This is degrading, insulting, humiliating, demeaning, abusive, offensive, belittling, disrespectful, slanderous, libelous and contemptible!!!!! I would bet that if one of Joe’s granddaughters was having to compete against a man and she lost a scholarship because of that man, well, Joe probably still wouldn’t care but it’s wrong, Joe, just wrong!!! There is something very wrong with anyone who thinks this is ok!! This is discrimination against women if I ever saw it!!! And, once again, you have chosen the deviate over women/girls!!!

If transgender athletes want to compete, give them their own category but stop this competing with actual women/girls!!! Just because transgenders can’t win against other men doesn’t mean that you should cheat in this way!! I don’t know how you, Lia, can feel good about yourself when you are basically stealing the wins, scholarships and futures of these actual girls/women!!!

You take motivation and incentive away from young women/girls with these actions!! Just like you are taking away motivation to have good credit with your program to punish those of us who have worked really hard to obtain good credit just like these young women/girls have worked really hard to obtain their position only to have it wiped away by Democrats who cater to deviates!!!

Biden continues to pick away at the fabric of America every day as he’s been doing his entire career but now without anyone able to stop him. I want to know what power he has to make these decisions and if it’s a power we the people of the United States can take away now? This is ridiculous as no other president much less one without any regard for anyone but his new friends ( China, LGBTQ and woke madness) has drained everything this country has built over centuries and he destroyed in as little as 2 years.

How does this end? Ok, I’ve decided to become a woman and I want to enter the Miss America Pageant. If I don’t win, it’s because I’m a man who decided to become a woman and I’m unfairly being discriminated against. Is that the way this works. Out of every talented woman in America, Biden picks a man for “Woman of the Year”. This moron and his administration are tearing the fabric of this country apart and as little as the people pay attention, Biden could possibly get re-elected, a most frightening thought.

If the “progressives” keep applying their cultural preferences to every area of federal money, eventually the only way to stop this creeping degradation will be to end federal money going to such things as sports in higher education. The federal government has used grants and other money to edge its way into every area that should not be subject to the federal government. The “budget” will eventually be overwhelmed and cuts will not be avoidable.

If the trans’ testosterone levels and DNA are that of a male and they still have something swinging between their legs they are male and should compete against males or start a sports program for trans. How would Biden feel about his daughter having to share a locker room with a trans male? Can these Dems. imagine the mental anguish these young ladies are experiencing in these locker rooms? Lea Thomas should hang HIS head in shame. Here’s a guy that received participation trophies all his life and decided he had a better chance against girls. What a wiener I mean winner.

In my opinion, seeing how .2 and .1 percent of the population can change the rules in their favor (cheating) from the 99.8 and 99.9 percent of the population. It is just a way to negate the human race.
We were created to be male and female with one purpose to procreate and populate the earth as directed by the Creator! Man wants to be in total control (impossible) and with doing away with genders we are becoming non-essential.
We are destroying all of the past positive movements to level the playing fields for women and allowing each to participate fairly. The one thing that needs to be done is the transgenders to organize and compete with each other. With their own org. they would have their special locker rooms and stop the corrupt nonsense of males claiming to identify as female to get into the female locker rooms Quite a tool for abuse by a man with only sex on his mind!
Where is the logic in all of the politics being forced by government? Maybe we need to flood our legislators with an avalanche of letters letting them know that they need to stand on truth and morals.

The only way all of the illegal, outlandish, misrepresented actions being imposed can and will be stopped is if everyone and every affected institution just refuses to abide. If penalties are thrown at the nonconformists, just ignore them, over and over if need be. God’s definition and common sense MUST prevail.

Once again, Biden is doing the exact opposite of being fair and scientific. He is falsely claiming that transgender females can fairly compete with biological females in sports. Since transgender females who transitioned after puberty are actually biologically males, Biden is allowing girls/women sports to be destroyed, all for the sake of satisfying many of the woke fanatics. Biden has absolutely no compassion and empathy for true female athletes, and is obliterating the futures of many biological females in sports. All the people who think that Biden is justified in his illogical and poisonous policies against true female athletes are sad excuses for human advocates of human rights. A very small minority of fringe extremists are pretending to be humanists, when, in fact, they are miscreant monsters.

First of all, the word “transgender” is a false word. It has no meaning. A person can’t go across genders to the other gender. Just stop using that word ever! Second, parents and their parenting needs to get a grip on reality and raise boys and girls.

Since Beijing biden loves sniffing underage girls hair does this mean he’ll start sniffing all the gay boys hair who think they are girls?
Boys, especially gay boys do NOT belong in girls sports. Just as girls do NOT belong in boys sports including gay girls who think they are boys belong in boys sports.
Simple common sense.
That’s why it’s called Boys Sports and Girl Sports.
Each has it’s own unique competition.

Like Barry Obama reportedly said, “Don’t underestimate Joe’s [Biden] ability to F _ _ _ things up.” Others have said that everything Biden touches turns to s _ _ t. Democrats and others who support this babbling “you know what” are included in that. Leave the girls alone. If some guy wakes up one morning and wants to be a “queen for the day” that does not make him female or a woman. Stop calling them by their females names. Thomas should not be referred to as her or female or even Lia because he is not female, a girl, a woman . . . he is a male, boy, man and needs to be addressed as such and called William Thomas.
