Boys v. Boys; Girls v. Girls.  No Foolin’. (April 3, 2023)

. . .

J          “Boys compete with boys.  Girls compete with girls.  Period.”

K          “Girls compete with girls.  Boys compete with boys.  Full stop.”

. . .

J          “Congress passed Title IX to provide equal opportunities for girls and women.  The legislation is one of the most successful undertakings and resounding successes in American history.”

K          “The irony is that other legislation and court decisions undermine the logic and promise of Title IX.  It is unreal and surreal.”

. . .

J          “The current practice of allowing biological males to compete against biological females is resulting in greater resentment toward trangender folks from otherwise kind and understanding folks.  The reaction is reasonable and palpable.”

K          “This is a subtle variation of the effort by some to get the folks with the burning torches to turn on the folks with the pitch forks.  Think about it.”

. . .

K          “The NCAA women’s championship game yesterday would have been radically different with biological men playing on each team.”

J          “The NCAA men’s championship game tonight would be radically different with biological women playing on each team.”

. . .

J          “You are in a heap of trouble for thinking freely.”

K          “Glad to join the pile of free thinkers.  Logic and common sense still have a place.”

Boys and girls should be free to bake bread and build bridges.
