Three girls from a Connecticut high school have filed a federal discrimination complaint against a statewide policy on transgender athletes. The girls say that these policies are hurting them; they missed out on top finishes in races and possibly even on college scholarships.
The complaint was filed Monday by the conservative Christian law firm Alliance Defending Freedom. Christiana Holcomb, legal counsel for the Alliance, explains in the New York Times:
Girls deserve to compete on a level playing field. Women fought long and hard to earn the equal athletic opportunities that Title IX provides. Allowing boys to compete in girls’ sports reverses nearly 50 years of advances for women under this law. We shouldn’t force these young women to be spectators in their own sports.
Connecticut’s policy on transgenders is downright insane. Students have to be treated according to the “gender with which they identify.” The result is that male students, who say they identify as girls, are dominating girls’ sports. Just look at the photo above from the AP of high school transgender athletes Terry Miller and Andraya Yearwood finishing first and second, while their “biological” female competitors (read: girls) are nowhere to be seen.
OK, that’s not true… if you concentrate and focus really hard you can see them somewhere, far away in the background.
Although the far-left fake news media won’t like it, the three girls who filed the suit enjoy massive support on Twitter:
They have 100% of my support

Good I hope every woman and girl stands up. Transgender women are not the same as biological women and should not compete with bio women. transgender women have a genetic advantage over bio women,it has to stop. We bio women will not be suppressed again.
