Women’s Sports Foundation Plumbs Outer Boundary Of Rank Hypocrisy

One of the great ironies with respect to Pres. Joe Biden’s executive order allowing biological males to compete in girl’s sports is the fact that it is supported by the Women’s Sports Foundation (WSF).

The founder of the WSF is Billie Jean King, a former professional tennis player who came to national attention in 1973 when at the age of 29 she won the televised “Battle of the Sexes” tennis match against Bobby Riggs, 55, a professional tennis player, hustler and loud mouth male chauvinist.

The OCR ruled in May the physical advantage enjoyed by the two transgender runners had allowed them to win a combined 15 girls state indoor or outdoor championship races since 2017. The Office threatened to halt funding for Connecticut school districts that permitted biologically male runners who identify as female to compete in girls sports.

In his first day in office, GOP Pres. Joe Biden effectively rescinded the OCR’s ruling.

With the stroke of a pen, GOP Pres. Joe Biden set female athletics back 40 years.
