One of the amendments offered to the COVID bill this morning was by Senator Tuberville (R-AL), which would have prevented any money in the COVID bill from going to schools which allow biological men (who call themselves transgender women) to participate in women’s sports:
Proud to join @SenTuberville to protect female athletes. With $170 billion of this bill going to education, we must ensure public schools aren't rewarded for implementing policies that allow genetic boys to compete in girls’ sports. https://t.co/fZY30FAF4P https://t.co/YZ1EmsRu5O

The Senate is now voting on Tuberville amendment #1386 (prohibit funds made available under title II to States, local educational agencies and institutions of higer ed that permit any student whose biological sex is male to participate in sports designated for women or girls).

I can dig that! But of course, it failed as you might’ve expected with a party-line vote.
Yesterday AOC caught wind of the amendment and decried bigoted Republicans for obsessing over other people’s gender identity:
Trans kids are awesome, incredible, beautiful, and wonderful. Bigotry is not. Republicans need to stop obsessing over other people’s gender identity bc frankly it’s very weird and they’re doing a lot of harm to children who are just trying to be themselves.

This is what Democrats always do. The take something evil and spin it around until they have a good face on it to try and make Republicans look like the evil ones.
She accuses Republicans of doing harm to children, but there should be no such thing as trans kids and any parent who allows it is guilty of mentally abusing their children. Period. Republicans want to protect children, not allow them to be brainwashed and indoctrinated by liberal parents.
Not to mention that by calling them ‘trans kids’, AOC is indicating her support for children getting transgender hormone therapies and surgeries in order to transition them to another gender. It’s sick!
