The Department of Justice (DOJ) caved to the Woke Supremacy and withdrew its support of a federal lawsuit seeking to overturn an insane state policy in Connecticut that allows transgender athletes to race in women’s track competitions.
The lawsuit was filed by some female runners who argued that they had been deprived of wins, athletic opportunities, and even state titles due to the fact that they were unfairly forced to compete against transgender runners who are biologically male.
Under the Trump administration, the DOJ had filed a statement of interest in the lawsuit back in March in support of the suit that seeks to change the policies of the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference. Then-Attorney General Bill Barr argued that the unfair competition violated Title X, which among other things protects equal opportunities for females.
But now the lunatics are running the asylum in Washington, DC. You know the type, people who always inexplicably find the need to tell conservatives that they believe in “science” – as if conservatives don’t – but then go on to explain to us that if a biological man puts on a dress and says out loud that he is a woman then he is, in fact, a real woman.
The DOJ statement was withdrawn on Tuesday.
Connecticut US Attorney John Durham and other officials said in a statement that the “government has reconsidered the matter.” Translation: the crazies are now in charge and it’s going to be hell for the next four years.
The CIAC argued that it’s following guidance from state law that stipulates students should be accommodated according to their preferred gender identity. But Title X is federal law and the Democrats who have always wrongly argued that federal law, outside of the original 18 enumerated powers found inside the Constitution along with any powers that came with amendments, supersedes any powers of the states. Now that it’s working against them they changed their tune. Suddenly they believe in states’ rights. But how much do you want to bet something else will come along next week say in Texas or Florida where the same crazies will argue that states’ rights don’t really exist because they block whatever nonsense they’re dealing with at that time?
The Alliance Defending Freedom, who filed the federal complaint, made the argument that the CIAC is violating the equal rights of female athletes.
“Girls deserve to compete on a level playing field. Forcing female athletes to compete against boys is grossly unfair and destroys their athletic opportunities,” said ADF legal counsel Christiana Holcomb. She will be flogged, FLOGGED I tell you, by the Woke Supremamcy once they wind of her attempts to argue that there are only two genders, something that mankind has understood since the days man climbed down from the trees.
“Now when we line up in front of our blocks, and the starter calls us to get into position, we all know how the race will end. We can’t win,” said Selena Soule, a female athlete who is arguing discrimination.
Executive Director of LGBT rights group True Colors, Robin McHealen, denounced the lawsuit.
“What they are proposing is legally sanctioned discrimination under this lawsuit,” said McHealen. It’s only discrimination because the state of Connecticut went nuts and demanded men in dresses get special rights.
I don’t know Ms. McHealen, and I’m sure zee is a nice person, but how on Lucifer’s black beach can zee not figure out that forcing biological females to compete against biological males is not discrimination at the federal level?
I think the answer to this is to create a new category of transgender sports, but the Woke will never go for it because it makes just too much sense.
