North Carolina Looks To Ban Trans Males In Sport, Stop Transition Procedures For Those Under 21

Many states have done the same, especially in banning the gender confused from playing in sports of the opposite sex, mostly to protect women from having to compete with biological males, which destroys women’s sports. North Carolina is giving it a shot, and uber-Progressive NC Policy Watch is livid

HB 2 redux? NC lawmakers again buck science, human rights advocates and corporate America with attacks on transgender rights

(unhinged discussion of HB2, the so-called bathroom bill)

At issue this time are the new and even broader comprehensive assaults on transgender rights found in Senate Bill 514 and House Bill 358. Unlike the hastily tossed together “bathroom bill” of 2016, these proposals don’t just manufacture controversy out of thin air by advancing preposterous lies about “cross-dressing” male predators lurking in female restrooms. Rather, they undertake a broad and concerted assault on the very existence of transgender people.

As Policy Watch reporter Joe Killian reported last week, House Bill 358 – the badly misnamed “Save Women’s Sports Act” – is literally based on the premise that transgender women are simply men pretending to be women.

They are. So says thousands of years of biological science. So says reality. Even if they get breast implants, take huge amounts of estrogen and other drugs, and cut their willy off and create a fake vagina, they still have male chromosomes.

Indeed, the bill specifically states that “sex shall be recognized based solely on a person’s reproductive biology and genetics at birth.”

The “party of science” doesn’t like science.

SB 514 would go even further by seeking to:

  • ban anyone under the age of 21 from receiving gender-affirming treatment, including reversible hormone therapy,
  • impose fines on medical professionals who provide gender-affirming treatment to anyone under the age of 21, and
  • require government employees, including teachers, to report children who demonstrate “gender nonconformity” to their parents, and
  • protect the discredited practice of “conversion” therapy,

Both bills are part of a transparent national effort by Trump-loyal social conservatives who dominate the Republican Party to find and manufacture issues that will keep the GOP base voting against its own economic interests.

The only thing that goes to far is the use of 21 as the age. But, then, these days, are those who turn 18 really adults? Considering the way they act in college, maybe not. But, should be 18. Let the grow up before deciding to make a huge, massive life changing decision, not as kids. And should have left conversion therapy out of this. Unfortunately, politicians always seem to add unnecessary stuff into bills.

First, the science is much more commonly understood than it was five years ago. Not only is gender dysphoria widely known and accepted as a serious medical condition and covered by numerous insurance plans, the notion that transgender women athletes will automatically enjoy an inherent and unfair physical advantage in sporting competitions has been widely debunked.

Let them wait till they’re mature enough to make the decision for life changing procedures. Certainly not their parents pushing for this stuff when they’re kids. And, yes, the reality is that men enjoy advantages over women in most sports. Notice no link was offered on that being debunked.

Meanwhile, the NCAA is hellbent on destroying women’s sports

NCAA backs transgender athletes, says events will be in places ‘free of discrimination’

The NCAA has issued a stern warning to state leaders: Fail to support an inclusive environment for all athletes and lose the chance of host tournaments.

The warning is directed at 30 states considering transgender sports bans, including both North Carolina and South Carolina.

The NCAA Board of Governors released a statement Monday that it will not host championships in places that discriminate against transgender athletes.

The NCAA said all student-athletes are “expected to be treated with dignity and respect” and that tournaments will only be held in places where hosts can commit to a “safe and discrimination-free environment.”

“The NCAA Board of Governors firmly and unequivocally supports the opportunity for transgender student-athletes to compete in college sports. This commitment is grounded in our values of inclusion and fair competition,” the statement read in part.

What about treating actual, real women with dignity and respect? How about not taking away their competition chances, their wins, their scholarships? The world is nuts.

    The only part of which I am unsure is setting the age at 21 rather than 18. Eighteen-year-olds are legal adults, and if they want to start taking drugs which ruin their lives, and have mutilating surgeries, that’s their business, and no one else’s, as long as other people don’t have to pay for it.
