The White House has released a statement insisting that Joe Biden will veto the bill backed by former college swimmer Riley Gaines to protect women’s and girl’s sports.
On Monday, the White House noted that Biden would not sign the Protection of Women and Girls in Sports Act if it makes it to the president’s desk. (H.R. 734)
Saying, “The Administration strongly opposes House passage of H.R. 734,” the statement makes a series of claims that simply are not true.
“For students nationwide, participating in sports and being part of a team is an important part of growing up, staying engaged in school, and learning leadership and life skills. H.R. 734 would deny access to sports for many families by establishing an absolute ban on transgender students…” the administration’s statement reads.
The bill does not place any “absolute ban” on transgender athletes. What it does is limit all participants to competing solely in categories that correspond to their birth gender. Transgender athletes are not being kept from joining sports. They are just being kept from choosing their own gender categories.
Hypocritically, Biden’s statement goes on to say, “Politicians should not dictate a one-size-fits-all requirement that forces coaches to remove kids from their teams.”
