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?

Holcomb: Sure.

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.

Department Of Education Rules Connecticut Policy Allowing Male Students To Compete In Women’s Sports Violates Title IX

The U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights found a Connecticut policy which enabled male students identifying as female to participate in athletic competitions against female students was in violation of Title IX, after a several-month investigation.

The investigation was prompted by a request from Alliance Defending Freedom, a nonprofit advocacy group representing the families of three female high school athletes who were affected by the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference’s policy. Selina Soule, Alanna Smith, and Chelsea Mitchell are all track competitors forced to compete against male students as a result of the policy. Since 2017, Alliance Defending Freedom reported that two male athletes “have taken 15 women’s state championship titles” in Connecticut, titles which belonged to nine female athletes the year before.

Thanks for the update.

I read this morning where FB has censored at least one person for posting about transgenders talking about going after female athletes with baseball bats...but not the transgenders themselves. Maybe it's true, maybe it's not, but it would be typical of the social media giants.

Could common sense be making a comeback??

IMO these girls should not have to compete with any man who still has his Jewels.
If the freak is stupid enough to get his body mutilated then he can run with them.

You see women say they are equal in every way when they apply for physically demanding jobs that pay well.
Like Fire and Police or the Military where they want to be promoted equally with men.
We should not lower the standards to allow them to enter such jobs and then say don't have to compete with the men in their sports.

Now to me a male knowing his advantages competing with women is not much of a man anyway, but he should have to be able to show he no longer has his genitalia.
