Many parents recognize the problems this policy will create. Over 10,000 protest emails poured into the State High School League, but those emails were all ignored. The Ninth Circuit court once ruled that parents’ rights stop at the schoolhouse door, and the State High School League seems to agree. Instead, the league is elevating feminist theories about gender. They might appear absurd, but the league is far from alone. The National Federation of State High School Associations put it this way: “consistent and affirmed gender identity” determines whether one is a boy or a girl. Gender is a label anyone can choose for himself or herself. Anatomy and biology are pretended to be irrelevant.
Supporters of this nonsense hide behind Title IX, the law that was meant to assure equal opportunities for girls in schools and colleges. But the Minnesota League’s new policy puts transgender concerns above those of everyone, boy and girl. There is not much equal opportunity on a playing field where girls face off against boys. Feminists believe there is no difference between the sexes. Unfortunately, the girls and boys of Minnesota are now stuck with these radical feminist theories.
