The NFA Daily Spotlight: Fair Competition in Girls’ Sports
Do you think men and women deserve equal opportunities in sports? James Gottry of the Dr. James Dobson Family Institute joins the Daily Spotlight this week to discuss the unique, complementary roles males and females play in society. James recently visited a college campus and asked students if biological men should be allowed to compete against women. Women irrefutably deserve to compete on a fair playing field. Policies that determine eligibility by means other than biological sex ignore some natural physical disadvantages girls can face when forced to compete against boys, such as size, strength, bone density, coronary function, and lung capacity.
LB873, a bill recently introduced to the Nebraska Legislature, allows biological men to more easily compete in girls’ sports by providing a pathway to amend the sex listed on one’s birth certificate without any medical documentation. This type of legislation negatively impacts fairness and equal opportunity in women’s athletics, normalizes gender dysphoria in children, and encourages gender-fluidity, which can lead to sterilization, permanent life-altering surgeries, and the removal of healthy body parts.
