This weekend, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii absolutely shredded the opponents of her bill prohibiting biological males from women's sports (by which I mean she politely laid out common sense facts and logic).
Her critics responded in kind, thanking the representative for her service and her work to strengthen laws providing equality for women (by which I mean they shouted at the top of their lungs while breaking things).
After a flood of criticism from the Woke, who want to empower women by destroying femininity and erasing women from their own sports and accomplishments, Tulsi took to Twitter with a brief statement in defense of her "Protect Women's Sport's Act" which seeks to reaffirm "the biological sex-based distinctions between men and women in athletics."
"My 'Protect Women's Sports Act' simply protects the rights & interests of girls & women who participate in sports so they can compete on a level playing field," she said. "Denying biological differences between men & women undermines the reason why Title IX was created in the first place."
Seems straightforward and logical, right?
Some users on Twitter got very angry at Gabbard for her TRANSPHOBIC PATRIARCHAL OPPRESSION.
The oBjeCtiVe media got bent out of shape over it as well:
Tulsi released additional statements, arguing that her bill is based on law, original intent, and actual science (Tulsi, are you secretly a conservative??)
The congresswoman didn't end there but released a video detailing her reasons for the bill and its importance.
"Since 1972, since Title IX, because of increased funding an institutional opportunities, there's been a 545% increase in the percentage of women playing college sports and a 990% increase in the percentage of women playing high school sports," she said. "Before Title IX, 1 in 27 girls played sports, and today, that number is 2 in 5. Title IX made it so that schools could not discriminate between boys and girls, men and women, in both academics and sports, and it created life-changing opportunities for girls and women that never existed before."
The congresswoman then talked about how men have biological advantages over women (fact-check: true), how men identifying as transgender have dominated women's sports, injuring female athletes and stealing titles, awards, and scholarships (fact-check: true), and how Title IX was designed to give women their own space to have equal competition (fact-check: true).
"Now, it's a fact, biological males hold a physical advantage over biological females when it comes to sports," said this woman who is amazingly still on the Left side of the political aisle. "This is specifically why Title IX's sex-based segregation in sport was created. So, I introduced science-based legislation called the ‘Protect Women's Sports Act' that clarifies, upholds, and strengthens the original intent of Title IX. It ensures a level playing field for girls and women competing in sports."
At the time of publishing, Tulsi had wished Franklin Graham a Merry Christmas and a thousand more Leftist heads exploded.
