Democrats love to portray themselves as the party of women. The Democrats.org website proclaims proudly, We are committed to ensuring full equality for women.
Yet this past week, House Democrats voted unanimously to, appropriating a phrase from Joe Biden, put women back in chains. Not as slaves, but in competitive sports, giving them second class stature by tilting the playing field so far askew that most women will fall off the field and be unable to compete fairly in sports.
The US House of Representatives passed the Equality Act, which would require schools to include male athletes who identify as transgender girls on female sports teams, throwing biological women competing as such under the bus.
This bill amends the 1964 Civil Rights Act to protect sexual orientation and gender identity under federal anti-discrimination law. It all sounds fine and compassionate until one looks at the practical implications.
At a humorous level in the workplace, it will allow guys who look like John Candy or John Belushi to claim they are a woman and demand to work as a Hooters server or a Playboy bunny. Im sure thats not the intent of the bill.
Instead its in sports that the unintended consequences will be on full display. As reported by The Daily Caller, the Equality Act, would force public schools to expand female athletic teams to include biological males who identify as transgender girls. Dont expect this to end with only high school sports. Think professional and Olympic competitions.

It’s absolute INSANITY that a MAN/BOY, dressed as a woman, while still GENETICALLY having the strength and stamina of a MAN/BOY is allowed to compete with biological women.
But, let’s make sure we don’t offend the freaks and miscreants!
I’m glad it’s Friday and I’m only hours away from my first Martini! I’m going to need to re-hydrate BIG TIME after all the *spitting* I’m doing over various ‘news’ articles today, LOL!
PS. Dirty, with Olives. Shaken, not stirred. :)
Women athletes will soon throw Dems under the bus, as they have the better argument.
The dems are now on record voting that trans is at an officially higher privilege level than cis.
Trannys are higher on the victim chart, even though they represent a tiny fraction of the population.
I’m sure all those high school and college female athletes are fully behind letting boys wearing sports bras compete with them.
Hasn’t passed the Senate.
As much as Id like to have some pity and a bit of give a damn about this, I do not.
19A allowed women to vote this upon themselves, and they sure did. Consistently. They voted a lot of other bullshit onto us as well (Clintons and Obama to name two).
Every action has an opposite and equal reaction.
Stupid is as stupid does.
I always like to take this opportunity to point out something. The NCAA did a study of all 143 sports that they sponsor and found complete gender parity in only one sport.
Women compete directly against males, there is no handicap offered, the courses are the same, and the time/accuracy ratings are nearly identical.
This would clearly make successful female shooters the Greatest Female athletes in America. Lena Miculek should be a household name if anyone REALLY cared about female athletes.
Feminism and shooting. Should go together like wine and Brie, no?
Isn’t women’s sports sexist to begin with?
So much for all the efforts to create Title IX.
Equestrian events-—NOT NCAA item, but competition none the less.
The only women’s sports I ever watched enthusiastically was women’s beach volleyball! Now, I may have to give that up, ‘cause I don’t want to risk seeing some mentally ill dude’s tallywhacker and marbles flopping around outside of those cute little bikini bottoms! It’s be like Drebben’s reaction to the chick who went “boiinggg”!
Oh good God.
Oh yes, Klintoon and Uhbama are all due to us women.
Meanwhile I’ll bet your preferred candidates are all due to men. LOL
And BTW, the 19th doesn’t actually mean much. It only mandated that all must allow women to vote - but contrary to pop commie history, it was NOT the first time women voted in the US. Not by a long shot. (And no, it wasn’t WY either.)
Michael (Michelle) Obama has led the way....
These are the same idiots that want the Popular Vote over the Electoral Vote.
It goes against human nature. It denies undeniable truth. A man is not a women. A woman is not a man. Binary! There is no choice but yes or no. It’s the nature of things, and going against nature is insane.
And, if by some Satanic trick it does, President Trump is sure to veto.
You could have the Transgender Olympics. Those who have transitioned to “male” would be at a disadvantage.
