In a world where politicians are the pioneers of stupidity, it appears that Republican Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee has some common sense.
Even as the Biden administration has moved to allow trans students to use bathroom facilities and even participate on sports teams based on their "gender identity," Lee is pointing out the terrible effect this new policy will have on the very women the left claims to defend.
“I do believe that transgenders participating in women’s sports will destroy women’s sports," Lee said, as reported by NBC News. "It will ruin the opportunity for girls to earn scholarships. It will put a glass ceiling back over women that hasn’t been there in some time. I think it’s bad for women and for women’s sports.”
Speaking to reporters Wednesday, Lee said President Joe Biden’s executive order forbidding supposed “discrimination” of people identifying as transgender in school sports was an unjust intrusion.
“I will say, that particular executive order is a tremendous overreach of the federal government into the states," Lee said.
Not only is Biden's order "a tremendous overreach," but it's inordinately stupid. Seriously, who would be foolish enough to sign an executive order allowing biological boys to play in girl’s sports?
Recently, Republican politicians in Tennessee have been advancing a proposal to limit the involvement of transgender girls in school sports.
Democrat State Senator Heidi Campbell thought that her Governor was making a fuss over nothing. “What a hurtful thing for a leader to say. There have been zero incidents of this being an issue. This is just hate legislation, and to double down with an insult to our LGBTQ community is unnecessary.”
