The U.S. House of Representatives has finally voted to protect women’s sports, even though not a single Democrat voted in favor of the Protection of Women and Girls in Sports Act that passed in a 219-203 tally. Shockingly, 10 Democrats abstained from voting on this vital issue. They refused to acknowledge the need to end forced transgender participation in women’s sports, which makes a mockery out of fair play.
JUST IN: Every single House Democrat has voted in favor of allowing men to play in women’s sports.
These people make me sick.
Why do Democrats only care about women’s rights when it supports their own agenda? https://t.co/soEHKCjg6N

Democrat representatives dared to criticize Republicans for standing up for women’s sports. They accused the Republican Party of “bullying” and “belittling” transgender children. These absurd claims made by the Democrats were callously dismissive of concerns regarding women’s rights, which only hurts women athletes in the end.
BREAKING: The House has voted to protect women’s sports from transgenders taking over.
Not a single Democrat voted in favor of protecting women’s sports.
The bill would stop transgenders from playing on a women’s sports team meaning grown men who identify as a woman wouldn’t be…

Under the guise of competitive fairness? Are you really trying to say you would have won a national title against the men? Does it not break your heart to see women lose out on these opportunities?

Earlier this month, the world watched in horror as leftwing rioters attacked @Riley_Gaines_ and held her kidnapped against her will for defending girls’ sports.
Today, the House voted to stand with Riley and all the young women who deserve the full protection of Title IX. pic.twitter.com/jSc22A7696

Republican Virginia Foxx (R-NC) brushed off the Democrats’ comments, saying that Republicans simply want to secure the rights of girls and women in sports. She rightly stated that it is absurd that we have to fight for the basic rights of girls and women to compete on an equal playing field without being overpowered by biological males.
The Democrats’ endorsements of Biden’s rules will instigate changes that will not account for the hard-won rights women achieved in sports when Congress implemented Title IX in the 70s. Rep. Greg Steube (R-FL), a key supporter of the bill, expressed his dismay with the Biden administration’s decision to overturn Title IX in favor of their trans idols, which is downright insane.
Recently, a transgender swimmer named Lia Thomas, who was a mediocre male swimmer, became a champion in the female division. Unsurprisingly, she voiced support for Biden’s proposed changes. On the other hand, former All-American swimmer Riley Gaines, who was compelled to compete against Lia Thomas and even tied with the biological male, spoke out against the administration’s plan.
Republican Rep. Mary Miller (R-IL) praised the bill and Gaines before the House. It is time for the Democrats to stop playing games and start standing up for girls and women’s rights. This is a momentous victory for women’s sports, and we must do all that we can to safeguard it.
