Female High School Track Athletes Sue to Block Participation of ‘Transgender’ Athletes

Three female high school athletes in Connecticut and their families have filed a lawsuit to prevent so-called “transgender” athletes from competing against them in track, as local outlet Fox 5 reports.

The lawsuit was filed with the assistance of the non-profit group Alliance Defending Freedom, which has argued that allowing such “transgenders” – mentally ill men who believe that they are women – to compete against women “has deprived their clients of track titles and scholarship opportunities.”

ADF attorney Christiana Holcomb said in a statement that “forcing them to compete against boys isn’t fair, shatters their dreams, and destroys their athletic opportunities,” also arguing that such forced inequality “is completely at odds with Title IX, a federal law designed to create equal opportunities for women in education and athletics.”

Currently, “transgender” boys are allowed to compete in women’s sports due to the state’s anti-discrimination law which dictates that students are allowed to identify with whichever gender they please, and must be permitted to join any such gender-based activities. Connecticut is currently one of 17 states that allows “transgender” athletes to compete in the sports of the opposite gender at will, while eight states have passed restrictions on such participation.
