As the liberal agenda continues to push the boundaries of gender equality, some are concerned that the movement itself could fold in on itself, and begin proceeding the same sort of disparity that it rallied against.
In this case, we’re talking about transgender rights and women’s rights, and whether or not they intersect at a controversial space for either movement. With the Biden administration’s signing of an executive order on the subject this week, the argument has gone public.
Idaho State University runner Madison Kenyon spoke out against President Biden’s new gender identity executive order Monday, citing her experience competing against transgender athletes as the reason for signing onto a recent lawsuit against the administration.
During an interview with Ainsley Earhardt on Fox & Friends, Kenyon appeared with her lawyer Christiana Holcomb to discuss how her past competitions against “biological males” were both “frustrating and “unmotivating.”
Do you think Cubans are fighting for healthcare or freedom from Communism?
Earhardt did not mince her words:
Holcomb explained that Biden’s executive order sends a message to her client and other female athletes that they “don’t matter to this administration.”
She added that federal law is “very clear” about having separate sporting sections for women to ensure that they can be “champions” and maintain a “fair” and “level playing field.”
States have already begun to push back, however, with Idaho having banned male-born athletes from participating in women’s sports back in March of 2020.
