Study: Fair competition is about more than hormones

Joe Biden at HRC dinner (June 2019)Even with the "groundbreaking" study revealing that transwomen undergoing hormone therapy still have a significant advantage over biological female athletes, conservatives are sure that Joe Biden will accelerate the transgender agenda if given the chance.

The British Journal of Sports Medicine has published research showing that current International Olympic Committee (IOC) guidelines may give transwomen an "unfair competitive advantage" over biological women, according to The Guardian.

"You get a nonbiased (sic) study that shows that 12% of transgenders remain strong after two years, even of adverse hormone therapy, so it's more than just hormones," responds Steve McConkey, president of 4 WINDS USA. "It's also the structure of the person."

After next year's Olympics in Tokyo, the IOC wants to reduce the permissible testosterone levels for transmen from ten nanomoles to five. McConkey, however, wants the guidelines to be completely eliminated.

"If you've got a 6'10" basketball player or a 6'8" guy, you're not going to reverse the strength," he points out. "I think they need to eliminate [the nanomole guidelines] altogether, but … this is a start."

But even given this research, a conservative group is concerned that a Joe Biden administration would move quickly to promote a radical sexual agenda in America's schools. The Democrat presidential hopeful has, for example, promised to reinstate the Barack Obama policy allowing transgendered students access to the sports, bathrooms, and locker rooms that match the gender of their choice.

Linda Harvey of Mission America says this is an "illegitimate" policy decision on the part of any president and asserts that President Trump was right to reverse it during his first four years. If it is reinstated, she says it will accelerate the LGBTQ agenda.

"Biden and Kamala Harris, if they should come into the presidency and vice presidency, are far-left radicals who will be unfriendly to Christian values and unfriendly to families," Harvey predicts.

That is why she believes Biden and Harris would have no difficulty in reinstating this highly controversial policy by executive order.

"All they'll have to do is do a couple of the same slight-of-hand executive order tricks that Obama did, and they'll have so many school districts coming on board," the Mission America founder warns.

Additionally, according to Breitbart, Biden has pledged to sign the Equality Act to force public schools to allow transgender males into female athletics.
