MADISON, Wis. -- Some Republican senators introduced a bill making it a violation of federal civil rights law if schools allow male transgender athletes to compete as girls.
The Protection of Women and Girls in Sports Act would stop biological males from competing as girls or lose federal funding.
Senator Kelly Loeffler of Georgia is the bill's lead sponsor. Four other Senators co-sponsored the bill: Mike Lee of Utah, Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee, James Lankford of Oklahoma, and Tom Cotton of Arkansas.
In 2003, 4 WINDS USA President Steve McConkey started fighting against the International Olympic Committee's transgender policies. He was the only one who stood against this publicly.
From there, the transgender movement spread to state high schools, the NCAA, NFL, NBA, and MLB. Steve has fought this LGBT agenda every step of the way.
"We applaud the Senators for making common sense decisions," states McConkey. "Only 28% of Americans favor transgender athletes competing as women. Society has shifted so far left that Title IX is being distorted to mean something never intended. We need to pray for our elected officials and that this wrong would be corrected."
McConkey tried to sue the International Olympic Committee before the 2016 Olympics in Rio. He was concerned that intersex athletes (not transgender) would sweep the 800 meters. That is exactly what happened as they were allowed to have high testosterone levels.
The Olympics are postponed until next summer. After the Olympics, they plan to make it tougher for transgender athletes to compete by lowering testosterone levels down to 5 nanomoles instead of 10. They have already done so for intersex athletes.
