Obama Judge Allows Transgender Male to Play on Girl's Team

Obama’s Judge Makes CONTROVERSIAL Ruling Regarding Gender

(TheRedWire.com) – Numerous young women have fought to preserve their right to only compete with other biological women over the last several years. While they may be winning politically in Republican-led states, some courts a re pushing back against new laws prohibiting people from competing in sports based on gender identity instead of gender biology (birth gender). The most recent example is out of Indiana after the family of a 10-year transgender person who identifies as female filed a lawsuit because the biological boy couldn’t play on the girls’ team any longer.

The new Indiana law requires school sports teams to assign players based on their biological gender. US District Court Judge Jane Magnus-Stinson, a nominee of former President Barack Obama, ruled the law violated the Supreme Court’s 2020 decision in Bostock v. Clayton County, Georgia, which said showing any bias against a transgender individual constituted sex discrimination. She also ruled it violated federal protections under Title 9 of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Magnus-Stinson said she believed the lawsuit had a likelihood of success and placed a preliminary injunction against enforcing the law. The judge noted the boundaries of Title 9 are shifting.

The bill’s sponsors argued that the state needed the law to protect the integrity of women’s sports and prevent biological women from losing athletic opportunities to transgender women. Republican Senate President Pro Tempore Rodric Bray said the legislation created basic fairness and said Republicans expected legal challenges. Still, he believes the legislation was right for Indiana. Indianapolis Public Schools intends to appeal the judge’s ruling.
