VIDEO Female athlete in legal fight over transgender competitors slams Biden’s executive order

By Joe Saunders, The Western Journal

Madison Kenyon knows first-hand how unfair the Biden administration’s vision of women’s sports really is.

The Idaho State University student-athlete knows that women forced to compete against men in contests of strength and endurance are starting with a losing hand.

And since Joe Biden seized the presidency, she and countless other women have been shown that the full force of the federal government doesn’t take their rights as seriously as it takes the latest leftist fads.

Kenyon is one of two Idaho State students who sided in court last year with an Idaho law that bans males from competing in women’s sports, even if those males “identify” as women.

She appeared on “Fox & Friends” Monday with her attorney, Christiana Holcomb, to talk about the executive order Biden signed amid the flurry on his first day of office lets “transgender” athletes compete in women’s sports despite the natural, undeniable physical advantages that the male human body has over its female counterpart.

Recognizing the reality of the differences between the sexes, Idaho’s Republican Gov. Brad Little signed a law in May that banned all teams sponsored by public schools, colleges and universities from allowing male athletes from competing in women’s sports, according to The Associated Press.

The law, along with another that prohibited individuals from receiving new birth certificates with a gender other than the one they were born with, was inevitably challenged by the American Civil Liberties Union. The ACLU called the laws “discriminatory, unconstitutional and deeply hurtful,” according to CNN.

But for Kenyon, what’s “deeply hurtful” is to be forced into an athletic competition with an opponent who has advantages literally built-in by nature.

“I have competed against a biological male in cross-country and indoor track. It’s super frustrating and unmotivating to lose against a biological male in your own sport,” she told Fox News’ Ainsley Earhardt.

“And having experienced that, I decided to get involved in this lawsuit because I felt like it was the best way for me to get my voice out and fight for these opportunities that should be preserved for women.”

That’s the kind of statement that should draw cheers from the liberal end of the political spectrum, where women’s empowerment is supposed to be a top priority. But women like Kenyon — and better-known figures like “Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling — are finding out that in the 21st century, the rights of imaginary females are trouncing the rights of flesh-and-blood women.

And as Biden’s executive order showed, the White House is fully on board with that.

Holcomb, Kenyon’s attorney, put Biden’s action in perspective even liberals should be able to understand.

“What we do know is it sends a message loud and clear to female athletes like Madison that you don’t matter to this administration,” she told Earhardt.

“Frankly, federal law does not matter to this administration, because federal law is really clear that we have women’s sports as a separate category to ensure that female athletes get to be champions and get to have [a] fair and level playing field.”

The reality is, this shouldn’t even be a matter for serious people to debate. Literally, every human being who passes puberty knows full well that the male body as a rule is bigger and stronger. That basic fact is only more true when it comes to athletes and physical conditioning. It’s why Serena Williams and Rafael Nadal, for instance, will never play for a title at Wimbledon.

(It’s why Serena Williams probably won’t be eager to play any reasonably ranked male tennis player for that matter. At least not in public.)

The fact that some males decide to wear dresses or flowers in their hair doesn’t change the basic makeup of their bodies.

Athletes like Kenyon, who spend their lives training to compete in a sport against their peers, are getting the shaft from the same Democrats and leftists that claim to champion women’s advancement in every other aspect of society.

“This is important to me because I’ve experienced it. I know how unmotivating it is and how frustrating it is to lose to a biological male and to see them on the podium in the female sports,” Kenyon told Earhardt. “And I don’t think any other female should have to experience that.”

It’s unclear how, or if, Biden’s executive order would affect the ACLU’s challenge to the Idaho law, but it is clear the issue isn’t going away.

Holcomb, as befits an attorney, rendered the argument in unassailable logic.

“Men and women are not identical, and this is really showcased well in sports. The whole reason that we have women’s sports as a separate category is to showcase those physiological differences and ensure that female athletes like Madison get a chance to be champions…,” she said.

“At bottom, what we need to be doing is ensuring that the female sex category is protected because there are those physical differences between the sexes that make it unfair to force females to compete against physiologically superior male athletes.”

That isn’t rocket science. It’s not advanced medicine. It’s a simple fact of life understood by every honest person whose mind isn’t warped by leftist propaganda.

That might leave out Biden and his backers, but it still includes the majority of Americans — whether they’re men or women, athletes or couch potatoes.

And doubters can always ask someone like Madison Kenyon.

NPR erupts over ‘Male and female He created them’

Network can’t handle truth of God’s mind on sexuality

The Vatican has released a document titled “Male and female He created them” and it has NPR erupting in distress over the clear suggestion that there are men, there are women, and that’s how God created them.

The idea flies in the face of today’s politically correct social agenda that sometimes identifies many different sexual orientations or gender identities. The fight is going on over and over across America as men who say they are women demand to enter women’s shower rooms and more.

At the agenda’s extremities Democratic majorities in some states are banning even discussion by counselors of a heterosexual lifestyle with minors who have unwanted homosexual feelings.

Talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh noted that June is a month to celebrate homosexual “pride.”

And he pointed out that although the pope generally adopts “left-wing activist stuff,” in this case, he has “come out and denied during pride month the concept of gender identity.”

He quoted from a report on the issue, “The Vatican department charged with overseeing Catholic education released an extensive document Monday decrying what it calls a ‘crisis’ on whether gender can be an individual choice rather than being set by God or biology.”

The quote continued, “The document describes a culture-wide ‘disorientation’ that serves to ‘cancel out’ the natural difference between man and woman, as well as ‘destabilize the family as an institution.’”

“‘The Congregation for Catholic Education says the goal of the 31-page guide –’ This is a guide on how you shouldn’t do this transgender stuff and you shouldn’t destabilize the family and if you’re born a woman, be happy about it. Born a man, be happy. You don’t have to right to choose this. Gender is not something you choose. God determines it. That’s in the guide,” Limbaugh said.

NPR said in an online report, “The timing of its release … during the heart of Pride Month, led some to wonder whether Vatican bureaucracy was making a point.

“The text was dated Feb. 2, 2019, but was only made public more than four months later, around the time gay-rights supporters the world over gathered at rallies, parades and concerts honoring the LGBTA community.”

NPR pointed out that Pope Francis has in the past suggested sympathy for LGBTQ community members.

“But that support has not extended to transgender individuals, whose gender identity does not match the sex they were identified as having at birth,” the report said.

Explained Limbaugh, “And the goal of the guide, according to the Congregation for Catholic Education, is to ‘support those who work in the education of young people, so as to help them address in a methodical way (and in the light of the universal vocation to love of the human person) the most debated questions around human sexuality.’”

He explained the document simply states traditional Catholic teaching.

“So essentially here the pope is saying that God determines the sex of human beings. To do otherwise will destabilize the family as an institution. Let me tell you, when the left cannot count on Pope Francis, then they’ve got trouble,” Limbaugh said.

The document itself explained, “It is becoming increasingly clear that we are now fac[ed] with what might accurately be called an educational crisis, especially in the field of affectivity and sexuality. In many places, curricula are being planned and implemented which ‘allegedly convey a neutral conception of the person and of life, yet in fact reflect an anthropology opposed to faith and to right reason.’ The disorientation regarding anthropology which is a widespread feature of our cultural landscape has undoubtedly helped to destabilize the family as an institution, bringing with it a tendency to cancel out the differences between men and women, presenting them instead as merely the product of historical and cultural conditioning.”

The new Vatican release’s sub-head is “Towards a path of dialogue on the question of gender theory in education.”

The paper included a warning: “The context in which the mission of education is carried out is characterized by challenges emerging from varying forms of an ideology that is given the general name ‘gender theory,’ which ‘denies the difference and reciprocity in nature of a man and a woman and envisages a society without sexual differences, thereby eliminating the anthropological basis of the family.

“This ideology leads to educational programs and legislative enactments that promote a personal identity and emotional intimacy radically separated from the biological difference between male and female. Consequently, human identity becomes the choice of the individual, one which can also change over time.”

It explains that it actually is from their sex “that the human person receives the characteristics which, on the biological, psychological and spiritual selves, make that person a man or a woman.”

The Vatican document explained that there have been calls for public recognition of the right “to choose one’s gender, and of a plurality of new types of unions, in direct contradiction of the model of marriage as being between one man and one woman, which is portrayed as a vestige of patriarchal societies.

“The ideal presented is that the individual should be able to choose his or her own status, and that society should limit itself to guaranteeing this right, and even providing material support, since the minorities involved would otherwise suffer negative social discrimination,” the document states.

The transgender agenda points in society, then, the report said, “are the expression of a widespread way of thinking and acting in today’s culture that confuses ‘genuine freedom with the idea that each individual can act arbitrarily as if there were not truths, values and principles to provide guidance, and everything were possible and permission.’”
