So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. – Genesis 1:27
Decades of support and progress for women and girls in sports are about to be undone.
The rise of transgender ideology has resulted in an unfair situation where women athletes are forced to compete against biological men who identify as women. The muscular, skeletal, and hormonal differences between men and women – especially at the highest levels of sport – are significant enough that a transgender woman competing against biological women has a distinct physical advantage. It is gross hypocrisy to police the use of steroids and banned substances but force biological women to compete against men.
While some sports – like USA Swimming – have already taken action to address the issue, many others are afraid to do so. The result is that hardworking female athletes are being ignored and treated unfairly by the organizations that should be preserving the integrity of their sport. The recent example of Lia Thomas, a transgender woman (formerly male swimmer) who dominated the NCAA swimming championship.
CAAP believes that the real biological differences between men and women should not be ignored to placate a radical minority. While there may be other solutions that will allow transgender women to participate in specialized sporting competitions, they should not be permitted to undermine the integrity of women’s sports. Please sign the petition below to ask the NCAA to save women’s sports!
To the NCAA Board of Governors:
The participation of biological men in women’s sports not only represents an unfair competitive advantage, but is inherently unjust to female athletes. For decades, women have worked to promote equality in the treatment of women’s sports. That work is now being undermined by a policy that robs the very concept of femaleness or womanhood of all meaning. If a biological male can compete against women in a woman’s sport, then women’s sports will eventually die.
We ask you to preserve the integrity of women’s sports by establishing rules that require all participants in collegiate sports to compete in the division that reflects their biological, e.g. chromosomal, sex (where those sports have separate divisions for male and female competitors).
