Boys on the girls’ track team? Republican Senator Paul Rand challenged a Biden cabinet nominee to explain his view on biological males competing in high school girls sports, resulting in a stuttering response that showed the nominee for Education Secretary had no real answer to the issue.
For example, Senator Rand asked, “Does it bother you that the top 20 percent of boys running in track meets beat all of the girls in the state and that it, you know, would completely destroy girls’ athletics? The girls are being pushed out, they don’t make the finals in the state meet, they don’t get college scholarships? That’s really detrimental to girls’ sports.”
Biden’s nominee could only state in response to this and every question, “I think schools should offer the opportunity for students to engage in extracurricular activities, even if they’re transgender.”
This does NOT answer the question. It states a view WITHOUT addressing the conflict created when a student can choose his or her gender identification for an advantage in competitive sports. Once again, another Biden teammate reveals positions without support, even when it contradicts the views of many in his own party.
