(DCWatchdog.com) – Democrat presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has declared his opposition to allowing biological men identifying as “trans women” to play in women’s sports.
RFK Jr., an environmental lawyer and anti-vaccine activist, is one of the three official candidates for the 2024 presidential nomination of the Democratic Party, alongside President Joe Biden and spiritual guru Marianne Williamson.
A report by Breitbart News points out that Robert Kennedy’s position against “transgender” athletes in women’s sports is “a departure from” the pro-trans stance of the Biden administration.
The son of US Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy and nephew of assassinated US President John F. Kennedy told CNN on Saturday that “biological males” threaten female sports.
“I am against people participating in women’s sports who are biologically male,” RFK Jr. declared.
“I think women who have worked too hard to develop women’s sports over the past 30 years, I watched it happen and I don’t think that’s fair,” the Democrat presidential challenger argued.
Kennedy stated further that his opposition to “trans women” in sports was one of the policy areas in which he and Biden “differ really dramatically.”
RFK has recently attacked leftist cancel culture, revealing that his Hollywood actress wife, Cheryl Hines, has lost jobs because she supported his presidential candidacy.
The report notes that President Joe Biden has been a “fierce supporter” of biological males declaring themselves females and playing in women’s sports.
As part of that policy, the Education Department (DE) of the Biden administration has been seeking to prevent schools receiving federal money from “categorically” prohibiting “trans women” from girls’ athletics.
As part of the proposed rule, Biden’s DE would seek to “establish that policies violate Title IX when they categorically ban transgender students from participating on sports teams consistent with their gender identity just because of who they are.”
At the same time, though, the rule stipulates that “in some instances, particularly in competitive high school and college athletic environments, some schools may adopt policies that limit transgender students’ participation.”
According to the Education Department, its proposal will offer a framework under which schools would be able to come up with criteria for protecting transgender students from “being denied equal athletic opportunity while giving schools the flexibility to develop their own participation policies.”
A report by USA Today states that the new rule could have varying applications to K-12 schools.
Thus, it would still allow schools to “determine what is right for them under the proposed regulation, including considerations of grade and education level, a senior department official said on a call with reporters Thursday.”
