Republican Representative Mo Brooks (Alabama) criticized Mr Biden’s gender decree as a step backwards towards feminism in an interview with Breitbart’s SiriusXM program.
TT Biden’s decree that Title XI, a federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against women on the basis of sex, is now also enforced to prohibit discrimination against individuals based on “copy”. gender identity ”- or a person’s subjective perception of their own sex.
“This is a terrifying step backwards for female athletes,” said Brooks, noting that the executive order not only allows men to compete in women’s sports, but also women. Cannot receive scholarships from sports schools (because physiological characteristics of men give them an advantage over women in sports competitions).
“This is the scientific denial that Joe Biden applies to the American public,” said the congressman. It must get a lot of attention. “
Instead, Mr Brooks said Democrats are focusing on impeachment to distract people.
“They are using [the president’s] impeachment to a large extent to distract the public and the media from the terrible policies introduced by the White House with executive orders like the destruction of Title IX, which promotes women’s sports activities,” Brooks said. .
In response to Mr Biden’s executive order, MPs Brooks and Barry Moore have signed together as promoters of Bill 2021 to protect women and girls in sport. This bill was proposed by Representative Gregory Steube (Florida) in 2019.
The bill would codify compliance with the Title IX Act regarding athletics to assess sex based on biological sex rather than subjective perception.
Brooks has said his job is more difficult as Democrats take control of both Houses and the White House, but he won’t give up the fight.
“We have the choice. We can resist these atrocities and the terrible policies of the Socialist Democrats or we can surrender.
“I won’t give up. I will fight them – I will fight them with my vote. I will fight them throughout the electoral process and I will do all I can to ensure that the greatest nation in the history of the world – the United States of America – retains [this title] ”.
