Lawmakers Want Males in Girls’ Sports

They say Education Department order is discriminatory.

A group of 28 lawmakers led by Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal signed a letter demanding that the Department of Education allow males to participate in girls’ sports.

Their letter stated that  a prior order by the Department “discriminates against transgender youth”  by ruling that it is a violation of women’s access to education and athletics for public schools to allow biological males who identify as female to participate in female sports.

“The decision of the Department of Education to issue a determination targeting transgender student athletes on the eve of Pride Month is not coincidental. It is a transparent example of their campaign against the rights and dignity of LGBTQ+ children,” said lead signer Connecticut Representative Jahana Hayes in a statement.

The Education Department’s May 15 ruling provoked backlash from some lawmakers and transgender rights advocates who called it “another attack from the Trump Administration on transgender students.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos and others at the Department as they fashion their response to the letter from lawmakers.
  • About the quandary of allowing males who identify as females to participate in girls’ sports giving them a clear biological advantage.
