Only 29 percent of Americans support allowing biological males to compete against biological females in sport, but the Democrats have shrugged off the lack of support.
A Democratic bill would mandate “gender equality” in public schools even though a poll shows that less than a third of Americans say biological males who identify as transgender should be allowed to compete with girls in sport.
In fact, a majority of Americans (51 percent) oppose allowing biologically male contenders to compete against girls even if they identify as “transgender”.
According to a Rasmussen poll released on Friday, fifty-seven percent of black Americans, a key voting demographic for Democrats, said they opposed males competing in girls’ sports.
Despite the obvious lack of support, the legislation forcing public schools to include biological males in female sports teams is being pushed by every Democratic presidential frontrunner.
The bill would force public schools to include biological males who identify as transgender in female teams even though transgender biological males in college teams have dominated many female events already.
The Rasmussen survey is consistent with a Morning Consult poll released in October this year showing that majorities of Republicans, Democrats and independents all said biologically male athletes have a “competitive advantage” over female athletes
This view is also supported by scientific research on the issue.
The Equality Act, passed the House with unanimous Democratic support in May, amending the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to include “gender identity” in the federal anti-discrimination law.
