Transgender rights in Texas took another step backward last month, when public school superintendents voted 586-32 in favor of a rule that requires schools to use birth certificates to determine the gender of student-athletes.
This law is seen not only as “an attempt to handicap transgender student-athletes’ eligibility,” but it’s also believed to be a clear violation of Title IX.
“The Department of Education has stated that Title IX covers trans students and prohibits discrimination based on gender.
There is actually a reason why we have mens’ teams, womens’, boys n’gals play separately. The male musculature means that, to take one interesting historical comparison, the steroid doped up winner of the female sprints in the Olympics would have placed third or fourth in the boys’ Brooklyn high school heats for the same event in that same year.
And you can’t really claim that Title IX bans gender discrimination when the whole point of it is to make sure that equal amounts of money get spent on the separate events for boys’n’gals. For those musculature reasons.
They’re going off the deep end, aren’t they?
