Girls sue to block participation of transgender athletes

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) -- The families of three female high school runners filed a federal lawsuit Wednesday seeking to block transgender athletes in Connecticut from participating in girls sports.

Selina Soule, a senior at Glastonbury High School, Chelsea Mitchell, a senior at Canton High School and Alanna Smith, a sophomore at Danbury High School are represented by the conservative nonprofit organization Alliance Defending Freedom. They argue that allowing athletes with male anatomy to compete has deprived them of track titles and scholarship opportunities.

"Mentally and physically, we know the outcome before the race even starts," said Smith, who is the daughter of former Major League pitcher Lee Smith. "That biological unfairness doesn't go away because of what someone believes about gender identity. All girls deserve the chance to compete on a level playing field."

The lawsuit was filed against the Connecticut Association of Schools-Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference and the boards of education in Bloomfield, Cromwell, Glastonbury, Canton and Danbury.

"Forcing girls to be spectators in their own sports is completely at odds with Title IX, a federal law designed to create equal opportunities for women in education and athletics," attorney Christiana Holcomb said. "Connecticut's policy violates that law and reverses nearly 50 years of advances for women."

Nike Joins Effort to Block Bill Designed to Protect Girls from Competing Against Transgender Athletes

Nike has joined a group of businesses in signing a letter of support to defeat a Tennessee bill which would prevent biological male athletes from being able to compete against girls.

The letter, sponsored by 142 businesses in the state, claims that other states will retaliate against Tennessee if it passes laws to prevent biological boys from competing as transgender girls and the resulting actions by outsiders will be bad for Tennessee's businesses.

Several bills have been introduced in the state legislature to address the problem of boys competing as girls. Two bills in particular, House Bill 1572 and Senate Bill 1736/HB 1689, are currently being considered.

"Policies that signal that the state is not welcoming to everyone put our collective economic success at risk," the letter says. "It is both a business imperative and core to our corporate values that our customers, our employees and their families, and our potential employees feel fully included in the prosperity of our state."

Nike is so woke they publically joined a campaign to stop literal dudes with dicks in competing against girls. When America rights itself, they will find they were on the wrong aide of this one. The backlash should be splendid. 
 

i can see all their commercials in the future once they switch stances, all about the power of the All-female athletes. 
 

also, fuck Nike.

Yeah, fuck Nike in their commie asses. 

 

The libs are stuck on this deal. They can't condemn this because it destroys the "woman strong, we are all the same" feminism bullshit. So instead they are forced to let female athletes wither on the vine while kowtowing to a fractional percentage of the population. 

It would be funny, but I'm sure a large portion of these female athletes don't subscribe to this bullshit in the first place.

Oh maaaan, Yes! How entertaining it would be to see an nfl team comprised solely of women and tranny boys getting flattened by some big linebackers

The only eventual end point of all this is combining all sports and just letting the best win in each sport, in each category.

So let it roll. Sit back and enjoy the show.

There's pictures of one of those "girls" who won all the state sprinting championships in Connecticut. He hadn't even bothered to shave his mustache. At first, I thought he was a major troll. but after watching a TV interview with him, I was convinced he really believes he is a girl.

The sooner this lawsuit can be suppressed the better.  Girls should be making kids and sandwiches. No room for athletics, college and work.

My daughter plays softball. This topic has provided some interesting discussion on the forums.  Some "open minded" people were quickly exposed to evidence that didn't align with their expectations.  When the conversation turned to "how would you feel if your daughter lost a softball scholarship opportunity to the college of her dreams to someone born biologically male" it seemed to take the piss right out of those preaching inclusiveness.
