When your only moral code is the victimhood Olympics, then everyone who can’t claim to be the biggest victim loses. In the case of girls, they lose sports. All of them.
That’s courtesy of GOP governors in Indiana and Utah who, like some of their other “incredibly brave” counterparts when it comes to making videos and tweets, but not legislation, decided that pledging allegiance to the NCAA and other organizations was more important than protecting girls.
Gov. Cox, the woke GOP governor of Utah, isn’t doing anything they’re not, he’s just being more repulsive about it.
Utah Gov. Spencer Cox made an emotional plea for compassion toward transgender youth Tuesday in explaining his decision to veto a bill banning transgender students from playing girls’ sports.
What about compassion for women and girls? Sorry, they don’t count.
Cox also cited research on how a sense of belonging could reduce suicide rates among transgender youth
“I don’t understand what they are going through or why they feel the way they do. But I want them to live. And all the research shows that even a little acceptance and connection can reduce suicidality significantly,” Cox wrote.
If Mike doesn’t get to shower with your daughter, he might off himself. So your daughter is just going to have to suck it up.
Of course the real life cause of suicide rates among people afflicted with the delusional idea that they are a member of another gender is a combination of the idea itself (enabling delusions is the worst possible therapy possible) combined with a regime of hormones and surgical mutilation. None of these things are exactly going to take you to a happy place. Mentally unstable people are indeed more likely to commit suicide. Enabling them, much like setting up shooting galleries for heroin addicts, an actual policy in New York and other major cities, is not helping them, it’s hurting them.
But until young girls have higher suicide rates (they’re pretty high already) than men who are convinced they’re women, girls’ sports will be crushed.
