On Wednesday, February 19th, the news outlet Give Me Sport reported that Nike’s stance in the transgender sports debate is crushing women’s sports.
The sports giant, along with 142 businesses had signed a letter of support to overturn a Tennessee bill intended to prevent biological male athletes from being able to compete against girls.
The letter claims that other states will retaliate against Tennessee if it passes laws to stop biological males from competing as transgender girls.
One teenage athlete who is fighting the injustice of transgender sports is Connecticut track star, Selina Soule. Soule knows from experience just how unequal the playing field is as soon as she lines up against transgender girls who speed past their opponents at state track competitions.
Soule said, “It’s upsetting when we work hard all season and put in a lot of effort, only to turn up at the state meets and get beat by someone who is biologically a male and lose state championships over this.”
Speaking from the National Office of the Knights Party based in Harrison Arkansas, National Director, Thomas Robb said, “This is the degeneracy that America had fallen into, God created male and female, that’s it.’ “God didn’t intend for His creation to “trade off” what He created them as.’ “You’re born what God wanted you to be,”
Robb added, “It’s absurd for anyone to think they can change their sex, you may be able to cosmetically change your appearance, but through your genes, your hormones, and in your DNA, you are what God created you.”
