If you’re a male seeking to intrude upon female sports, an athlete and climate change nut or an athlete looking for a good free meal, Joe Biden is the president for you. Dustin Foote explains why in the Deadspin story “From White House visits to NCAA reform, what should sports expect from a Joe Biden administration.”
Foote’s slideshow lists several areas in which the new leader of the free world can impact sports, and none are more pointed than those involving transgender athletes and winter sports at risk from climate change. “The new administration promised ‘normalcy,’ but there could be a series of decisions that could shake up the sports world,” Foote says in a classic understatement.
On his first full day in the Oval Office, Biden reinstated Obama’s old Title IX guidelines, “which will restore transgender students’ (see above photo of June Eastwood, a male runner who starred for the University of Montana women’s cross-country team) access to sports, bathrooms, and locker rooms in accordance with their gender identity,” Foote reported. Former president Donald Trump had rescinded those guidelines in 2017.
“Since then, Trump has been quick to weaken transgender protections in sports, the military, healthcare and other areas,” Foote says. Nevertheless, several states and sports associations have been allowing playing fields with unfair advantages for males competing in female sports.
The Biden Executive Order requires that “Every person should be treated with respect and dignity and should be able to live without fear, no matter who they are or whom they love. Children should be able to learn without worrying about whether they will be denied access to the restroom, the locker room, or school sports.”
To be perfectly blunt, boys in the girls’ locker room will certainly learn everything they want to know about female anatomy as girls are forced to undress and shower in front of them. Woke government education at its best!
Biden’s presence at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue is also a Godsend to another group of fearful athletes: those running scared about the impending demise of winter. They’re better known as the athletes behind the Protect Our Winters group.
This is a nonprofit organization supported by adventure athletes, scientists and communities down for climate policies that benefit sports like skiing, rock climbing and trail running. Save Our Winters is dedicated to helping outdoor athletes “protect your powder stash,” “save your local crag” and “keep your runner’s high.”
Extreme weather and warming winters are shortening your season, fossil fuel development on public lands is limiting access to your favorite crags and climate change is causing longer and more intense wildfire seasons, these footprint fanatics claim.
The new administration hasn’t yet said anything about outdoor and winter sports, but Biden’s executive orders (rejoining the Paris Agreement and canceling the Keystone XL pipeline) are giving hope to sky-is-falling climate alarmists.
Another of Foote’s so-called positives coming about courtesy of the new president will be the return of woke NBA and NFL champions celebrating championships in the White House. Though there is a risk of an infidel like hockey player Tim Thomas boycotting a visit with the president (Obama) because he disagrees with out of control big government threatening “the Rights, Liberties, and Property of the People.” God forbid anyone like that from setting foot in the Biden White House or making headlines for refusing the president’s invitation.
Foote is certain that Biden will also feed his hungry sports visitors better meals than Trump did, too. Which was fast food during a government shutdown.
All in all, it should be a grand four years for social justice warriors who like to play ball with the Left.
