The Democratically controlled House of Representatives voted Friday 236-173 in favor of the Equality Act, which would require schools to include male athletes who identify as transgender girls on female sports teams.

Eight Republicans crossed party lines to vote for the bill, which had unanimous Democratic support.

The bill amends the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to make “sexual orientation and gender identity” protected characteristics under federal anti-discrimination law.

Among other things, that would force public schools to expand female athletic teams to include biological males who identify as transgender girls.

Republican Florida Rep. Greg Steube introduced a last-minute amendment to the bill that would have preserved Title IX’s protections of female athletic teams, but Democrats rejected it.

Every House Democrat but one co-sponsored the legislation. The only Democrat who wasn’t a co-sponsor, Illinois Rep. Dan Lipinski, announced his support for the bill following pressure from left-wing activists.

“People need to wake up. This radical bill is going to totally eliminate women’s and girls sports,” Republican Arizona Rep. Debbie Lesko warned in an op-ed Thursday.

Republican Missouri Rep. Vicky Hartzler and a half-dozen other House Republicans held a press conference Thursday in opposition to what Hartzler dubbed the “Inequality Act.”

“Congress enacted Title IX to provide equal opportunities for women in education and sports. All this is erased under H.R. 5,” Hartzler said at the press conference.

Three former elite female athletes, Doriane Coleman, Martina Navratilova and Sanya Richards-Ross, warned that the Equality Act would wreak havoc on women’s sports in an April 29 Washington Post op-ed.

“The legislation would make it unlawful to differentiate among girls and women in sports on the basis of sex for any purpose. For example, a sports team couldn’t treat a transgender woman differently from a woman who is not transgender on the grounds that the former is male-bodied,” the former athletes wrote.

“Yet the reality is that putting male- and female-bodied athletes together is co-ed or open sport. And in open sport, females lose,” the three women warned.

House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler, a Democrat from New York, insisted the bill wouldn’t put female athletes at a disadvantage.

“Many states have sexual orientation and gender identity nondiscrimination laws, and all of them still have women’s sports. Arguments about transgender athletes participating in sports in accordance with their gender identity having competitive advantages have not been borne out,” Nadler said at a April 2 hearing on the bill.

In Connecticut, one of the states to which Nadler was referring, two male runners have dominated girls’ high school track. A female competitor called the male runners’ advantage “demoralizing.”

    Why is it that the demwits always want the pervert boys to attack the girls and not the other way around. I havent heard one time where a girl claims to be a boy so she can use the boys rooms and lockers. I think this is jihadbamas muslim hatred towards women

      There was that one time where they tried to make a gym teacher be a damn bouncer for the
      thing so it could change in the boys gym room.

    Nadler: ” …competitive advantages have not been borne out,”

    What B.S. So typical of liberal thinking: facts that contradict your talking point just don’t exist.

    Stop girls sports completely . It’s certainly not fair but it’s better than the Democrats alternative.
    We can thank the ex Imam of the Rainbow Mosque for all of this ! After his royal decree that public business must have His, Hers and It’s restrooms they decided their agenda would be forced on all of us. It has been a smashing success.

    This is shameful. We need to vote these idiots out and get control of the House back and get rid of this bullshit bill. But I have to say, this is the beginning of the end. Too many people are making an abomination of this world, and eventually God is going to cleanse this planet. May those of us who believe and trust in him and his son, Jesus Christ be saved.

    WOW!!! Nadler is now an EX-SPURT on Girl’s and Women’s sports. Definition: ex means he is a “has-been” and spurt means to eject or spew something from the mouth. Congress is now ruled by EX-Spurts. It’s too bad they forgot their Anatomy Class. I guess they don’t have enough imagination to discern the differenceS between Male and Female. I think Congress has opened a massive can of sexuality eating WORMS.

    Where are all the NOWS and why aren’t they speaking up against this? I can tell you where they are, they are Democrats first and fighters for women second. They never did care about normal girls and women, that is why the whole organization was taken over by lesbians. They have always fought for sexual orientation and insisted it be in the Equal Rights Amendment, that is why it never passed and became law back in the mid 80s. So I would bet they are for this stupid $hit too.

    They say the want to protect women/girls, but they are setting them up for more abuse. Biological males do not belong in a girls locker room or sports. Of course they are stronger the the biological females. It is not fair to the biological females!!!
