“Across the sporting world, the game is being rigged against women and in favor of biological men,” former South Carolina governor and U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, wrote for the National Review on Monday.
“President Biden is the latest man to do the rigging, which is strange coming from someone billed as a defender of women.” continued Haley. “In one of his first acts as president, he signed an executive order paving the way for a federal mandate that all schools receiving federal funding let biological men play on women’s sports teams. The order was framed as a matter of transgender rights. But really, it was an attack on women’s rights.”
Haley pointed out that many generations of women fought hard to ensure that their daughters and granddaughters “had a level playing field, because girls deserve the same chance as boys to play sports.”
“Thanks to the efforts of countless feminists, the number of women’s teams in schools has taken off over the past 50 years. Before then, less than 4 percent of girls played a sport. Now 40 percent do,” said Haley.
“My generation was one of the first to benefit from these victories. My daughter’s generation has reaped the rewards, too. But Biden’s actions will roll back those victories and put women at a disadvantage. Now, when a girl steps up to compete, she’ll have to ask herself: Who am I really competing against?”
