(Tea Party 247) – In a recent Rasmussen Poll, it was revealed that the majority of Americans still don’t think trans female (biological male) athletes should be allowed to compete against biological women. The poll results almost perfectly mirror an earlier poll Rasmussen Reports conducted last spring. The LGBT crowd is undoubtedly left wondering how this could be considering the trans movement has indeed been picking up steam over the last several years. Apparently, Americans have decided to draw a line in the sand.
The Washington Times reports:
A Rasmussen Reports poll released Friday found that 51% of U.S. adults surveyed opposed allowing athletes compete on the basis of their gender identity, including biological males who participate in women’s and girls’ sports.
Only 29% supported “allowing transgender students to participate on the sports teams of the gender they identify with,” while 20% were undecided, the survey said.
The results of the poll, taken Oct. 31-Nov. 2, were virtually identical to a Rasmussen survey released in June, which found only 28% favored allowing transgender students “to participate on the sports team of the gender they identify with,” while 54% were opposed.
Is it possible that Americans recognize the fact that allowing biological men to compete against women just because they’re allegedly confused about their own gender, is complete lunacy? Of course not all trans female athletes are using gender-confusion as a means to gain an advantage but it certainly is possible.
The Washington Times cites the case of Selina Soule as one such possible example.
The conservative Alliance Defending Freedom has filed a federal complaint on behalf of a Connecticut high school student, Selina Soule, who failed to quality for the New England regionals after losing a race to two biological male students who identify as girls.
“In fact, one of the athletes who displaced Selina previously competed against other male athletes in the winter 2018 season and failed to advance in boys’ indoor track events,” the Alliance Defending Freedom said. “It wasn’t until that athlete began competing in girls’ events during the 2018 spring season that the dominance began. This biological male now holds more than 10 records within the state of Connecticut that once belonged to 10 different girls.”
What interesting timing to decide to act on alleged gender-confusion. We’re all just supposed to believe that there is no advantage for men competing against women, it’s just a “myth.” It doesn’t seem very much like a myth when almost every single trans female athlete completely annihilates biological females when they are allowed to compete against them.
“The myth that trans women have a ‘direct competitive advantage’ is not supported by medical science, and it continues to stoke fear and violence against one of the most at-risk communities in the world,” Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) said in a Jan. 31 letter in support of a transgender powerlifter excluded from the women’s events. Omar is either blatantly lying or speaking out of complete and utter ignorance.
Perhaps more concerning is that in May, House Democrats approved the ‘Equality Act.’
In May, House Democrats approved the Equality Act, which would ban discrimination based on gender identity and sexual orientation, despite opposition from Republicans who said it would erode the ability of females to participate in competitive sports.
The role of politicians is to act on behalf of their constituents yet it sure seems as though they prefer to act on behalf of special interest groups and very small minorities of the population. If the majority of Americans do not believe trans females should be allowed to compete in sports against biological females that message should be heard by Congress thus leading to legislation that reflects the will of the people.
Whatever happened to the left being the party for women’s rights? Sure seems as though women are being silenced on this issue. Numerous female athletes have come out publicly demanding that trans female athletes not be allowed to compete against biological women and no one seems to be listening to them. The only voices that matter are those of trans females, apparently. Feminism on the left is dying and being replaced with trans-feminism.
The ‘Equality Act’ will never make it through the Senate but if it should we can only hope President Trump would reject this bill with a veto, for the sake of women athletes.
