Radical feminist groups support GOP bill protecting women's sports

 April 20, 2023

How extreme is Joe Biden's Democratic party? Extreme enough that two "radical feminist" groups are backing a Republican bill to protect women's sports. 

Biden has already threatened to veto the bill, which passed the House on Thursday without a single Democrat voting in favor.

The Protection of Women and Girls in Sports Act, sponsored by Republican Greg Steube (FL), clarifies that males cannot compete with female athletes under Title IX, a federal civil rights law that bars discrimination on the basis of sex at federally funded schools.

Because of Democrat opposition, the bill has virtually no chance of becoming law. But Democrats want to go even further: Biden has just issued a new federal rule that would rewrite the statutory text of Title IX.

Unlikely alliance

The actual law says, "on the basis of sex," but Biden wants to replace the word "sex" with "gender identity" at a stroke of the executive pen.

That language shift reflects a wider cultural revolution that some feminists have protested as a step backward.

Kara Dansky, President of the Women’s Declaration International USA, called the Democratic party's advocacy of women's rights a sham.

"I am a registered Democrat and always have been, and I think it's the height of hypocrisy for Democratic leadership, including the president, to champion the rights of women and girls to abortion, which we totally support, while simultaneously denying the rights of women and girls to single sex spaces," she said.

The similarly radical-sounding Women's Liberation Front said that women and girls "deserve to play in athletic competitions that are fair and safe."

Marriage of convenience

It seems these feminists are still grappling with the fact that women have been demoted in the pecking order of "intersectional" woke liberalism.

Steube called it "insane" that the left is rewriting Title IX to defeat its original intent.

"Congress in 1972 created Title IX to protect women's sports to enable women to have an equal playing field in athletics," he said. "In worship to their trans idols, the administration wants to flip that on its head. It is insane."

In worship to their trans idols, Steube said. That's well put. The "trans movement" that Biden is pushing on the country is ultimately about hatred of God and the natural order.

While Biden's radicalism has created a marriage of convenience between conservatives and some disaffected liberals, it's unclear if the disaffected liberals have realized how we got here.
