We’ve praised South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem for her handling of the Wuflu – frankly, respecting adult Citizens in having responsibility for themselves instead of shoving the Government’s thumb down on top of everything in the private sector.
Essential, non-essential – Sununu decided to take that on by himself while Noem said, “that’s YOUR responsibility, not Government’s.” With that said, NH Governor Lockdown is STILL issuing Emergency Orders – the latest having nothing to do with the COVID pandemic. And now, another issue for which she is “showing him up.”
Governor Sununu also signed the Leftist Agenda Item bill, SB263, which ensconced “Gender Identity” as a Protected Class which is not to be “discriminated” against.
At that ring of the bell, School Districts (including mine) started to discriminate against biological boys suffering from gender dysphoria, to compete against biological girls. Once puberty has started, that biological process creates physical advantages that few biological girls can overcome in physical competitions.
And Sununu allowed it to happen.
On the other hand, like most right-minded people that understand that there are physical differences between boys and girls and they count mightily because SCIENCE! (reformatted, emphasis mine):
GOP Governor To Sign Bill Limiting Female Sports Teams in Schools To Biological Females
South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem (R) announced she would sign a bill to limit female teams and sports to biologically female students in public schools.
“In South Dakota, we’re celebrating [International Women’s Day] by defending women’s sports! I’m excited to sign this bill very soon,” Noem tweeted on Monday.
The bill, which would ban transgender women and girls from competing on female sports teams, was passed by the South Dakota Senate on Monday by a 20-15 vote.
And of course, the usual suspects, the ACLU and the power-mad Human Rights Campaign are running at the mouth in a huff:
The ACLU of South Dakota expressed opposition to the bill and advocacy manager Jett Jonelis testified against it. “In an attempt to ‘level the playing field,’ House Bill 1217 excludes an entire group of women and girls from meaningful participation in sports,” Jonelis said.
No, it doesn’t tilt it – it keeps it level. No matter how much yammering you do, transwomen are neither women nor girls. All you are doing, Jett Jonelis, is moving a political agenda that is working to erase any differences between any of us. You are very Progressive in continuing the idea that we all are just faceless cogs in the Progressive Social Machine that can be cast aside as one is interchangeable with another. And cast aside as well – with her reasoning, biological girls are just flawed transwomen and should be replaced like parts of a machine.
You discriminatory little twit!
The advocacy manager continued, “House Bill 1217 isn’t about protecting fairness in women’s sports. It’s about erasing and excluding trans people from participation in all aspects of public life. It’s about creating solutions to problems that don’t exist and, in the process, harming some of the most vulnerable people in our state.”
See what she’s doing there (like they all do)? Fashion “her people” as victims FIRST – who cares about the only real victims in this whole thing? That’s right, those whose sex was determined at conception are getting REALLY erased instead of those deciding to reassign themselves at will. And this is what it is all about – freedom to discriminate against biological girls. This is the “attack first to hold the High Language ground; nothing less, but certainly there will be more. Set the perception, make the rest of us debate from their setting the rules.
Not playing that game anymore. Neither should anyone else. Do they want to change traditional values? Don’t let them. Sununu caved, Noem is standing firm. Who would you want in your ideological foxhole, eh?
And of course, the powerful and discriminatory homosexual lobby had to weigh in as well (although the ACLU does have its own Trans Project project on the side):
The Human Rights Campaign also criticized Noem for backing the bill. The group tweeted, “Trans girls and their families are your constituents. You are using your power to exclude kids and make them feel less than, and that is nothing to be proud of.”
No. Not at all. Noem is VERY inclusive – of those, yet again, that were determined to be females ONLY at conception. If you are part of that group, she’s all for participating in sports set up by Title IX for GIRLS ONLY.
Funny how “inclusive” and “exclusive” are abused by the Left to advance their agenda (again, the redefinition of our common language) coupled with the absolute abuse of SCIENCE! and WE’RE the ones that are the wrong? THEY can claim the definition no matter how perverse the usage is – wielding it like a language club. As I said, this is a political push – not a biological one. And I will admit that my take on this when minors are being given puberty blockers and having mutilating surgery, that’s child abuse. Both by parents or those around the child.
Let the schools create new teams – trans teams. Then watch this whole thing play out all over again when the trans girls start beating the crap out of the trans boys. Because puberty!
So, I’m just waiting to see if NH Governor Chris Sununu is going to wade into this – he started this ball rolling (is that discriminating against squares and triangles?) by siding with the Left against SCIENCE!…
BTW, did Sununu get an invite to talk at CPAC?
