High School Track Star Who Lost Race to Transgender Athletes Explains Why She’s Fighting Back » RockIt News
The female high school athlete sidelined at a major track tournament because two transgender runners landed the No. 1 and No. 2 spots is fighting back.
The female high school athlete who was forced to sit on the sidelines at a major track tournament because two transgender runners landed the No. 1 and No. 2 spots isn’t just speaking out about the unfairness of her situation—she’s fighting back.
Hours after filing a complaint with the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights, Selina Soule and her attorney, Christiana Holcomb of Alliance Defending Freedom, sat down with Kelsey Bolar on this week’s edition of “Problematic Women” to discuss the latest developments in her case.
We know Title IX was designed to ensure that women were free of sex discrimination in education and, secondly, in athletics so that they could have the opportunity to compete, to move to the next level, to compete for scholarships, and potentially even launch their own athletic careers.
But what the Athletic Association in Connecticut has done by allowing biological males to compete in Selina’s female track tournaments is actually completely undermine and violate Title IX.
So Alliance Defending Freedom, on behalf of Salina and two other very courageous female athletes, has filed a Title IX complaint with the Department of Education.
This conversation is also about legislation that Congress is considering, the Equality Act. Christiana, can you break that down?
So the Equality Act is a piece of legislation, as you mentioned, introduced into Congress, passed by the House, but is still pending in the Senate, thankfully.
What it would do is essentially impose a gender identity law across the entire country.
So the particular policy that Selina is fighting in the state of Connecticut that’s allowing biological males to compete in sports designed specifically for women, that would become the law of the land in all 50 states, at every level—city, state, and federal—which, frankly, I think is a really scary proposition.
I think it has massive, massive ramifications, particularly for young women like Selina.
So basically, leftists are working to implement The Handmaid's Tale - you know: the one they continually accuse conservatives of espousing as their ideal.
