    Transgender policy found to violate Title IX

    Finally some sanity...

    Connecticut high school sports transgender policy found to violate Title IX; federal funds could be withheld from some local districts

    A Connecticut policy that allows transgender athletes to compete in girls sports violates the civil rights of female athletes, the U.S. Education Department’s Office for Civil Rights has ruled.

    The ruling, which was obtained Thursday by The Associated Press, comes in response to a complaint filed last year by several female track athletes, who argued that two transgender runners who were identified as male at birth had an unfair physical advantage.

    The office said in a 45-page letter that it may seek to withhold federal funding over the policy, which allows transgender athletes to participate as the gender with which they identify. It said the policy is a violation of Title IX, the federal civil rights law that guarantees equal education opportunities for women, including in athletics.


    It has “denied female student-athletes athletic benefits and opportunities, including advancing to the finals in events, higher level competitions, awards, medals, recognition, and the possibility of greater visibility to colleges and other benefits,” according to the letter, which is dated May 15

    A victory for women's rights. Liberals should be celebrating.

    Well I do, having two granddaughters. The idea of men competing against woman is completely unfair and just wrong.

    Yup. A guy who never placed better than fourth ends up declaring he feels girly and starts competing against actual girls and ends up breaking records.

    Not just breaking records but crushing them and putting them far out of reach of any female.
