A Christian school chose to forfeit a high school basketball playoff game rather than play against a biological male playing on a girl's team. The school chose to take the loss. Their choice. Now, the governing body of Vermont high school sports has booted the the whole school...from every sport.
pt has described as "fascistic and disgusting," legislation proposed to protect parents' rights to protect their children from unwanted exposure to LGBT excesses.
Talk about LGBT fascism!
The Vermont Principalsí Association (VPA) ruled that Mid Vermont Christian School had violated policies and is ineligible to participate in future tournaments that it sanctions. The move applies to all sports.
"The VPA again reiterates its ongoing support of transgender student-athletes as not only a part of building an inclusive community for each student to grow and thrive, but also as a clear expectation by Vermont state law(s) in the Agency of Education Best Practices, and in VPA Policy regarding transgender student athletes," the governing body said in a statement.
Last month, the Mid Vermont Christian School dropped out of the tournament ahead of a game against Long Trail Mountain. Vicky Fogg argued at the time that it was unfair and unsafe for the high school girls to play against a biological male on the opposing team.
"Transgender and gender nonconforming students are to be provided the same opportunities to participate in physical education as are all other students. Generally, students should be permitted to participate in physical education and sports in accordance with the studentís gender identity. Participation in competitive athletic activities and sports will be resolved on a case-by-case basis," the Vermont Agency of Education's best practices reads.
No one suggested that the biological male couldn't play in that game. Mid Vermont Christian didn't suggest that the bio male shouldn't play in the game, only that it'd take a loss in that game.
The VPA's action is uncalled for. It's anti-Christian, "fascistic and disgusting." It's pure LGBT fascism.
