Reaction to Biden’s Executive Order That Threatens Privacy Rights and Women’s Sports

January 21, 2021 | 3 comments | Posted in Gender, Privacy rights | Tags:

One of the first actions by President Joe Biden on his Inauguration Day was signing an executive order on “Preventing and Combating Discrimination on the Basis of Gender Identity or Sexual Orientation.” Included in his order:

“Children should be able to learn without worrying about whether they will be denied access to the restroom, the locker room, or school sports.”

While everyone should be treated with dignity and respect, the result of such an order will be the infringement upon student privacy rights and fairness in girls’ sports.

Here’s some of the reaction to this executive order:

Students should have the right to use a locker room facility where they can dress and undress without the presence of someone of the opposite sex.

Girls deserve fair competition, and that includes maintaining women’s divisions distinct from co-ed or men’s competitions. This is not fair to girl athletes like Selina Soule and Chelsea Mitchell.

Rhetoric such as allowing “males in women’s sports and locker rooms” speaks of women and girls as victims and males as the antagonists. But when it comes to claims of gender dysphoria, it is especially happening among teenage girls. A spike among biological teenage girls claiming to be boys, likely means they are using the boys’ showers and locker rooms. Of course girls should have privacy and safety, but don’t boys matter too?

Both boys and girls have a right to bodily privacy. That’s why our Independence Law Center represented both male and female clients in Joel Doe v Boyertown Area School District case.

For 4 decades now female sports reporters have been allowed to enter male locker rooms at will and interview nude males in pro and college sports. This is nothing less than sexual harassment against young men in pro sports and teenage boys in college. So now the women can see what it is like to have their rights to privacy invaded in the name of equality. Sad that it had to happen this way, but what did you expect when that pandora’s box opened up? Equal rights should be given to both males and females. Period!
