Sometimes political issues can get very muddled. Opponents of the Fairness in Girls’ Sports bill are trying to do just that with HB1298: muddle it.
They have created a huge closet full of “bogeymen”, including apocalyptic adverse economic impacts, politically correct victimhood scenarios, a “ban” of some sort that prevents some kids from playing in all sports, the specter of girls not being able to play on boys’ teams, and more. I could spend the next 1,000 words demonstrating that all these fears are unfounded or overblown, but we’ve done it before and it doesn’t seem to matter to them. The Left wants us to fixate on these issues, because it prevents us from seeing the real issue:
Biological boys beat biological girls at sports, even when they identify as transgender.
Period. The end.
As a result, girls across North Dakota are going to be the victims of this discrimination if HB1298 is not passed. That’s the whole message. It’s that simple.
Make no mistake, this is our watershed moment to protect our girls. Whether we protect them or abandon them now, it will be part of our lasting legacy. I don’t want to have to tell my daughter or future granddaughter that I didn’t value her enough to protect the rights that generations of women won for her over the years.
If this issue matters to you, if you want to make a difference, then please email or call Governor Burgum and ask him to sign HB1298 into law, for the sake of North Dakota girls. You can reach his office at (701) 328-2200 or you can email him directly using the following link. Sign HB1298 into Law.
NOW is the time to be involved. Not tomorrow. Not next week. It will be too late then. Please take just a couple minutes and let Governor Burgum know you value our girls and hope that he will protect their opportunities and accomplishments.
President and Executive Director
