According to The Daily Beast, the Biden administration wants to “confront” states that sign “anti-trans” bills into law.
“At the time of writing, 253 anti-LGBTQ bills have been introduced in the current legislative session. 124 of the bills are anti-trans, including 66 focused on playing sports, 33 focused on access to healthcare, and 14 focused bathroom and locker room access,” The Daily Beast reported. “Alabama, Arkansas, Tennessee, Mississippi, West Virginia, and South Dakota have introduced bans on trans girls playing school sports. Arkansas has enshrined a ban on gender-affirming health care.” Human Rights Campaign President Alphonso David has stated that his organization is having conversations with administration officials over legislation that they deem “anti-trans.”
David believes many of the legislation in circulation is in violation of federal law including the Constitution. Trans activists want the Department of Justice to get involved with states pushing this legislature, especially where legislature bars trans-girls from competing in women’s sports. The reasoning behind barring trans-girls from women’s sports is that biological males are at a physical competitive advantage, the reason why female sports exist. The US Military even created a “gender neutral” because women were failing the original test. According to Army figures, in the second quarter of 2020, 54 percent of women failed their Army Combat Fitness Test compared to just 7 percent of men.
