DOE letter: We still stand with biological girls

Mary Kate and Madison - IdahoThe U.S. Dept. of Education, which has already sided with biological teens girls and their anti-transgender lawsuit, has now staked its position more clearly after numerous conservative groups sought assurance from the federal agency.

In June, a whopping 46 groups signed their names to a letter urging the Dept. of Education to support all-girl sports teams despite a U.S. Supreme Court decision that ruled transgender females --- biological males --- are protected by federal law against being fired.  

The organizations specifically asked the DOE to continue supporting female athletes through Title IX after the Supreme Court ruled in Bostock vs. Clayton County that employers violate Title VII by firing an employee for being homosexual or transgender.

Meridian Baldacci of Family Policy Alliance, which signed the letter, says the letter was appreciated.

"So we know we have the Trump administration's backing on this issue more broadly,” she says, “and this letter, last week, was just one more assurance and a very strong one."

After left-wing activists won the Bostock ruling, their plan is to attack the conservative interpretation that Title IX applies to biological females, not biological males who say they are female.

"Title IX is completely separate from Title VII,” Baldacci argues, “And as much as the Left may want to impose Bostock, and use that as a weapon, we are going to continue fighting back…”

OneNewsNow has reported the ACLU is currently suing over Idaho's first-in-the-nation Fairness in Women's Sports Act that bans biological males from competing in women's sports.

Numerous female athletes, including professionals who risk angering LGBT activists and harming their careers, have stepped forward to support the Idaho law.
