Just consider what is at stake in 2020.
Right now, we have a Department of Justice that has made it clear that pandemics don’t supersede the First Amendment, that Big Tech needs to be held accountable for their biased censorship, and that biology determines gender.
Considering what SCOTUS just ruled about gender identity and discrimination, however, it is chilling to imagine what a Biden DOJ would look like and how quickly our constitutional rights would dissolve as the radical, far-left agenda adopted by the Democratic Party dictated the actions of the nation’s top law enforcement agency.
In light of last week’s controversial ruling, in which the high court ruled that a 1964 workplace sex discrimination law covered those who claim to be a member of the opposite sex, the DOJ is still sticking with their previously stated goal to defend biological as the sinlge determinate of one’s gender.
Just the News reports that the DOJ has intervened in an Idaho transgender rights case, siding with the state in their effort to prevent biological males from competing in women’s sports.
At issue is a federal court case involving Idaho’s Fairness in Women’s Sports Act, which forbids males who identify as females from participating in female sports competitions. The ACLU in a federal lawsuit is arguing that the law violates the U.S. Constitution and federal Title IX statute.
The agency said in a press release that it had filed a Statement of Interest which argued that the Constitution “does not require States to abandon their efforts to provide biological women with equal opportunity to compete for, and enjoy the life-long benefits that flow from, participation in school athletics in order to accommodate the team preferences of transgender athletes.”
“Allowing biological males to compete in all-female sports is fundamentally unfair to female athletes,” Attorney General William Barr said in the statement.
“Under the Constitution, the Equal Protection Clause allows Idaho to recognize the physiological differences between the biological sexes in athletics,” he said. “Because of these differences, the Fairness Act’s limiting of certain athletic teams to biological females provides equal protection.”
“This limitation is based on the same exact interest that allows the creation of sex-specific athletic teams in the first place — namely, the goal of ensuring that biological females have equal athletic opportunities,” Barr continued, declaring that sex-specific athletic competitions are “rooted in the reality of biological differences between the sexes and should stay rooted in objective biological fact.”
Last month, the federal government determined that a Connecticut policy that allowed biological males to compete in female sports discriminated against the biologically female athletes.
