For years we have seen the bizarre spread of transgender athletes creeping into sports and completely burying fair competition.
Now, three female athletes are fighting back with a federal lawsuit.
From CBS News:
Three Connecticut girls who have run high school track have filed a federal discrimination complaint saying a statewide policy on transgender athletes has cost them top finishes in races and possibly college scholarships.
The complaint filed Monday with the U.S. Education Department’s Office for Civil Rights was submitted by the conservative Christian law firm Alliance Defending Freedom on behalf of the girls, who are asking for an investigation of the policy and orders that would make competitions fair. The complaint also cites the federal Title IX rules aimed at equal rights in sports for female athletes.
This is fantastic. I absolutely believe the law should be on their side, but who knows what can happen when you have activist judges who care more about their stupid emotions than they care about the law.
“Girls deserve to compete on a level playing field,” said Christiana Holcomb, legal counsel for Alliance Defending Freedom. “Women fought long and hard to earn the equal athletic opportunities that Title IX provides. Allowing boys to compete in girls’ sports reverses nearly 50 years of advances for women under this law. We shouldn’t force these young women to be spectators in their own sports.”
Yup. Our society has lost its way when you have to sue on what should be common sense.
