DAILY SIGNAL: Girls High School Basketball Team Banned From Future Tournaments for Refusing to Compete Against Team With Male Player
A Christian school’s girls basketball team has been banned from competing in future tournaments after forfeiting a game against a team with a male student who claims to be transgender.
In February, the Mid Vermont Christian School girls high school basketball team pulled out of a game in the girls state basketball playoffs. Head of School Vicky Fogg told Fox Digital that the school chose to withdraw from the “tournament because we believe playing against an opponent with a biological male jeopardizes the fairness of the game and the safety of our players.”
The headmaster added: “Allowing biological males to participate in women’s sports sets a bad precedent for the future of women’s sports in general.”
Now, the Vermont Principals’ Association has banned the Christian school from future tournaments because the school would not allow their girls to play against a team with a male player.
The Vermont Principals’ Association said in a statement that it supports transgender student athletes, and said that “Vermont state law(s)” give transgender students the right to play on their team of choice.
On today’s edition of the “Problematic Women” podcast, we discuss the status of the fight to protect girls and women’s sports.
Also on today’s show, we explain the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank and how President Joe Biden’s bailout of all depositors is really just helping one class of people. Plus, New York City Mayor Eric Adams is now finally telling New Yorkers to remove their masks. And as always, we’ll be crowning our “Problematic Woman of the Week.”
