Of all the things that newly inaugurated President Joe Biden could do on his first day in office, why was one of them signing a radical transgender activist executive order? It’s obviously because, in his view, “transgender equality” is the great civil rights issue of our day. Except that it isn’t. Instead, the president’s executive action declares war on the rights of others, especially females. Allow me to explain.
On Jan. 25, 2020, Biden tweeted, “Let’s be clear: Transgender equality is the civil rights issue of our time. There is no room for compromise when it comes to basic human rights.”

This certainly sounds good. Who among us would want to compromise when it comes to basic human rights?
But that’s not what this is about.
It is about prioritizing the perceived needs of those who identify as transgender, meaning those who do not feel at home with their biological sex, to the point that the rights of others are negatively impacted.
We’re not talking about a legitimate civil rights issue, such as telling a black man he cannot drink from the white man’s water fountain. Or telling a black woman she cannot sit in the white man’s seat on the bus.
We’re talking about 6-year-old girls being forced to share their school bathroom with a biological boy who believes he’s a girl.
We’re talking about a 17-year-old girl being told she must share her school locker room with a biological male who wants to play on the girls’ softball team.
And we’re talking about this same 17-year-old girl who misses out on a prized scholarship because she was bested by her biological male peer who identifies as female.
To quote the executive order: “Children should be able to learn without worrying about whether they will be denied access to the restroom, the locker room, or school sports.”
That’s why author Abigail Shrier tweeted, “On day 1, Biden unilaterally eviscerates women’s sports. Any educational institution that receives federal funding must admit biologically-male athletes to women’s teams, women’s scholarships, etc. A new glass ceiling was just placed over girls.”
As expressed by a deeply concerned mother last June, “Over the past few years, athletes, coaches and parents have been watching in disbelief as girls are being replaced on the winner’s podium by boys who identify as girls at all levels of competition. It’s what prompted Idaho to enact a law to protect female athletes from having their dreams of success on the field taken from them by a male competitor, and it’s what prompted the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights to conclude that my home state, Connecticut, is in violation of federal law.”
This is not right, let alone a matter of civil rights. This is a matter of unfair discrimination.
As for the simple matter of bathrooms, there are numerous, documented reports of girls feeling so uncomfortable with the presence of boys in their school bathrooms that they refrained from relieving themselves the entire day at school. Others wear their gym clothes under their regular clothes lest they be forced to change in the presence of a boy. What happened to the basic, human rights of these girls?
