Biden to Push Transgender Bathroom & Sports Laws 'On His First Day in Office'
Vows to 'restore transgender students’ access to sports, bathrooms, and locker rooms'
Former Vice President Joe Biden has vowed to push pro-transgender laws for schools, sports, and bathrooms "on his first day in office."
Biden promised his supporters that he will begin removing any legal recognition of the two sexes by adopting pro-transgender policies from day one.
In a statement on his campaign website, Biden has pledged to revoke President Donald Trump's science-based policies on gender identity.
He promises to "restore transgender students’ access to sports, bathrooms, and locker rooms in accordance with their gender identity."
Biden’s campaign website states:
On his first day in office, Biden will reinstate the Obama-Biden guidance revoked by the Trump-Pence Administration, which will restore transgender students’ access to sports, bathrooms, and locker rooms in accordance with their gender identity.
He will direct his Department of Education to vigorously enforce and investigate violations of transgender students’ civil rights.
According to Breitbart, the Obama-era “guidance” dismissed the science of two biological sexes by allowing “sex discrimination” in Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (Title IX) to include “discrimination based on a student’s gender identity, including discrimination based on a student’s transgender status.”
In October, Biden also gave support for transgender medical treatments for children who may suffer from a psychological disorder known as gender dysphoria.
He said during an ABC town hall that eight-year-old children should be allowed to decide if they are transgender.
“The idea that an eight-year-old child, a ten-year-old child, decides, you know, ‘I want to be transgender. That’s what I think I’d like to be. It’d make my life a lot easier,’” Biden said.
“There should be zero discrimination.”
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.— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) January 25, 2020
Biden has also promised to sign the Equality Act into law in his first 100 days, a measure that would remove federal recognition of two sexes.
The Equality Act will codify into federal law transgender bathrooms, the elimination of women-only sports, forcing preferred pronoun use, and other similar special transgender privileges.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has already signaled she is in step with the Equality Act becoming law.
The new rules would require Congress to “honor all gender identities by changing pronouns and familial relationships in the House rules to be gender-neutral.”
Just days after introducing the new rules, Pelosi gave an anti-Trump speech on the House floor and described herself as "a wife, a mother, a grandmother, a daughter."
