Former US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said Joe Biden’s executive order that transgender people can participate in sports was an “attack on women’s rights.”
Mr. Biden’s executive order was signed on Jan. 21, saying that “Children must be able to learn without having to worry about whether they will be denied access to the toilet, the dressing room, or school sports” and call for equal treatment “Regardless of gender identity (what each person views about his or her gender) or sexual orientation.”
Mrs. Haley, in an essay for the newspaper National Review, arguing that Mr. Biden’s executive order would pave the way for a federal directive “That all schools that receive federal funding must allow biologically boys to play in women’s sports teams.”
She added: “This order is framed as a matter of transgender rights. But really, it was an attack on women’s rights. ”
In a notice sent USA TodayThe White House said the order does not bind federal funding to educational institutions with biologically permitting male athletes to participate in women’s sports teams and scholarships, but rather it only requires that all students, including transgender students, be able to learn without facing gender discrimination, and according to the announcement, part of the order is transgender students. compete in women’s teams.
Ms. Haley said the transgender children “Deserve support and respect”, However “Boys and girls are biologically different in structure.”
She wrote: “Justice and equality are ambiguous, and common perception is just as important as compassion. Women don’t participate in this race (athletic competition) just to see that they never have a chance to win. “
