Gaslighting and hypocrisy on transgender sports

By Scott Tibbs, April 5, 2021

The gaslighting and hypocrisy surrounding "trans girls" in sports is astonishing. The LGBTQ+ lobby demands that biological males barge into women and girls' restrooms and locker rooms, and that biological males be allowed to play on women and girls sports teams and dominate the biological females. Then they claim it is the Republicans who are waging a war by resisting this culture war front.

No, that is not how this works. You do not get to deny biological females opportunities to excel in athletics, and violate their privacy, and then whine about the fact that your radical agenda is encountering resistance. It is not those who are on the defensive who are waging a "culture war" here. The ones waging a culture war are the ones who are trying to pretend biological distinctions to not exist and create an unfair playing field.

And let's be real here: No one is excluded and no one is denied equal rights when biological males are not allowed to compete with women and girls. The biological males can compete on the boys' team or the men's team. You are not being "erased" or denied "rights" because others do not agree with your demands that biological facts must be ignored.

We segregate sports by sex for a reason. Expecting women and girls to compete with males is simply not fair. The reason Republican majorities in state legislatures are resisting this culture war front by the Left is because it is the right thing to do, and because truth deserves to be defended on its own merits.
