Tennis legend Martina Navratilova, the winner of 18 Grand Slam singles titles, has noted that, when it comes to competitive athletics, sex segregation is the only way to achieve equality for girls and women. That is because, on average, males are stronger, faster, and more powerful than females.
And, yet, with the stroke of a pen, the United States Supreme Court last week called into question the legality of all sex-specific athletic teams.
Many civil rights activists cheered the holding as a victory for the LGBTQ+ community. And, indeed, it is.
Suppose, for example, a male student fails to make the mens college lacrosse team but then tries out for the womens team and demonstrates that he is a better player than any of the female players. The coach of the womens team can only deny that player a roster spot if she considers the players sex. In this case, the player would be placed on the team but-for his sex. This is exactly what Justice Gorsuch says federal sex discrimination law forbids.
So what is to stop a male student, armed with the Supreme Courts ruling in Bostock, from claiming the right to try for a spot (and, potentially, a scholarship) on a womens team? Absolutely nothing.
biological females will lose spots on athletic teams with limited rosters. In head-to-head competitions, female athletes will lose to male-bodied athletes most of the time. This is not an equal opportunity. This is male dominance.
Today, thanks to Justice Gorsuch, the threat to womens sports is far greater than most people could have possibly imagined.
In fact, it is quite possible that the Courts Bostock ruling will pave the way for the elimination of sex-segregated sport altogether.

Liberals reap what they sew.
And the reaping will hopefully become very painful for them in the near future.
There’s always a bigger victim than you.
Now Title IX says the best woman is a man pretending to be a woman.
Did the Supreme Court just ratify the Equal Rights Amendment? Because it feels like they did.
This is what women voted for. This is what they get.
They ruined some men’s sporting programs, and no one wants to watch them.
I don’t watch JV HS sports, why watch a clearly inferior product?
I hope all sports are in jeopardy.
We are SO at war and most Americans don't see it ..... yet.
I'm fearful that by the time "we" wake up, it'll be too late.
For your interest.
I would like to see Cory Booker sue Joe Biden for illegally discriminating against him by not considering him for VP because of his sex.
Sure will save a lot of money. No need for a women’s basketball team. Just go out there and get the 12 best basketball players you can find. etc etc for sport after sport.
This is what you wanted isn’t it feminists?
Martina gets it right.
I love it when a male joins a female team and wins unfairly, because it forces people to think the unthinkable truth: “on average, males are stronger, faster, and more powerful than females” while they are thinking the PC-approved thought: “Men and women are the same. Chopping your weewee off makes you a woman.”
The cognitive dissonance is very amusing.
I imagine lesbos will drive normals away from that, as well.
Women are just as strong and can fight even better.
I’ve seen it on countless movies...
Don’t crap on my dreams. :)
Thanks to Gorsuch sex means whatever we want it to mean at that point in time so, frankly, title IX is meaningless and should be removed from law.
Martina should know. The difference between men and women is profound in the sport of tennis.
