As our kids head back to school this week, a major change in the fairness and privacy of sports awaits them...
At their Spring 2019 meeting, the North Carolina High School Athletic Association (NCHSAA) changed their original policy that required an athlete participate in sports based on the sex noted on the student's certificate of birth. The NCHSAA instead voted to now allow students to participate in sports based on their preferred gender identity, which a student identifies by submitting a "Gender Identity Request" form. By implication, allowing biological males who claim to be transgender to compete as females, means they will also have access to locker rooms and bathroom facilities in public schools. Are parents prepared for that?
Students who claim to be transgender will now be allowed to compete in high school athletics as the gender they identify with, not the sex they were born. Do you want your daughter or granddaughter competing against boys on their girls’ basketball team, softball team, volleyball team, swim team, or track team?
If you believe it is not fair for the NCHSAA to allow athletes who were born male and went through puberty as males to compete in girls sports and share bathrooms, locker rooms, and showers with girls (and vice versa), would you consider taking a minute to use this click-to-contact tool to ask the NCHSAA to reverse their gender identity policy?
