The NCAA has decided to pull championship events from those states unwilling to tow the line on LGBTQ activism; namely, allowing transgender athletes to compete against the opposite sex.
In a statement released Monday morning, the NCAA said it “firmly and unequivocally supports the opportunity for transgender athletes to compete in college sports” and would only consider “locations where hosts can commit to providing an environment that is safe, healthy, and free of discrimination.”
Almost 30 states are considering legislation that would ban transgender students from competing on school sports teams that align with their gender identities. Mississippi, Tennessee, and Arkansas already been proactive by legislating bans. Idaho did so last March, before a federal judge stopped the law from taking effect in August. Last month, South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem signed two executive orders limiting trans athletes’ participation after she vetoed an earlier bill which left some conservatives frustrated.
Through this decision the NCAA makes clear its lack of interest in fair competition and its disdain for those Americans who still hold gender and sexuality as an unchanging pillar of our society.
