Biden Order: ‘Play Like You Identify as a Girl’

With the stroke of a pen, he decreed that males should be allowed to compete against our daughters in sports.

To our friends on the Left: Are you happy now? Happy that one of Joe Biden’s first acts as the uniter-in-chief was to sign an executive order that allows biological males to compete against and dominate our daughters in sports?

You might not want to acknowledge it — and we can understand why — but when you voted for this guy because you didn’t like the abrasiveness of some of Donald Trump’s tweets, you voted against our daughters competing in sports solely against other women, and you voted against them having a fair shot at obtaining athletic scholarships. In addition, you voted against our daughters’ right to privacy in bathrooms, dorm rooms, locker rooms, and just about everywhere else.

Thanks a lot.

As Fox News reports, “President Biden, in an executive order aimed at ‘preventing and combating discrimination on the basis of gender identity or sexual orientation,’ is calling on schools across the country to allow transgender athletes to participate in the sport of their gender identity. … The order is a strong signal that the Justice Department is going to enforce it via Title IX — and schools that don’t comply risk losing funding.”

Ah, their gender identity. Never mind the biological fact that men are, on average, bigger, stronger, and faster than women. No one disputes this. In addition, as Madeleine Kearns detailed in National Review, “Other well-documented physical advantages men have over women include height, weight, broader shoulders, greater circulating blood volume, greater resistance to dehydration, larger lung capacity, thicker skin, faster sensory frame shifting, more hemoglobin in the blood, greater upper-body strength, faster reaction times, greater bone density in the arms, larger sweat capacity, higher systolic blood pressure, higher muscle-to-fat ratio, and larger hearts.”

As Abigail Schrier put it in The Wall Street Journal, “Once male puberty is complete, testosterone suppression doesn’t undo the biological advantages men possess: larger hearts, lungs and bones, greater bone density, more-oxygenated blood, more fast-twitch muscle fiber and vastly greater muscle mass.”

But, no, there’s no difference between the sexes. And the fact that Rhys McKinnon, er, Rachel McKinnon, er, Veronica Ivy is a two-time masters world champion in cycling has nothing to do with the fact that, unlike all of “her” competitors, every cell in “her” body has an XY chromosome pair.

Think about it: Why do we have men’s and women’s sports in the first place? Answer: Because women can’t compete with men. Period. If you can’t admit this, then you’re anti-science. Were Veronica Ivy competing against age-group men instead of women, “she” wouldn’t sniff a local club championship, much less a world championship. Or maybe someone can explain how, in 2017, a U-15 boys soccer team from Dallas whipped the world champion USA women’s team 5-2 in a “practice” game?

As for Biden’s executive order, he sets up a straw man in the very first sentence: “Every person should be treated with respect and dignity and should be able to live without fear, no matter who they are or whom they love.”

He then builds off that straw man with another one: “Children should be able to learn without worrying about whether they will be denied access to the restroom, the locker room, or school sports.”

Ah, the children. With the Left, it’s always about “the children,” even when it’s really about “transgender” males.

The order does a clever job of hiding the truth. As Ryan Anderson points out, what it really means is, “Boys who identify as girls must be allowed to compete in the girls’ athletic competitions, men who identify as women must be allowed in women-only spaces, health care plans must pay for gender transition procedures, and doctors and hospitals must perform them.”

And if you don’t like it, you’re a bigot and a hater.

About halfway through his inaugural address last Wednesday, Joe Biden told a whopper of a lie. “I pledge this to you,” he said. “I will be a president for all Americans, all Americans. And I promise you, I will fight as hard for those who did not support me as for those who did.”

We’re still waiting, Joe, for you to start fighting for our daughters instead of the Rainbow Mafia.
