In 'Woke' Culture, Women's Rights Have No Place

Three present and former Connecticut high school biological female athletes were prevented from offering an affidavit Wednesday before the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on the Equality Act that lately passed the House of Representatives. The Equality Act bars discrimination based on sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity.

Christiana Holcomb, the Alliance Defending Freedom legal counsel for the women, told The Epoch Times it was the bulk of Democrats who stopped the athletes from testifying.

“It is disgraceful that Democrats refused to hear from Selina, Chelsea, and Alanna on the harms that they face from a law like the Equality Act. Our clients have lost out on state championships, podium spots, and opportunities to advance in competition because they were forced to compete against biological males,” Holcomb said.

Democrats and Republicans accused each other.

When asked by The Epoch Times if the majority side denied enabling the women to testify, a spokesman for the Democrats, who asked not to be identified, said, “No, they were not barred by the majority. The minority was able to call two witnesses and they chose the witnesses that testified today.”

Republican committee spokesman Taylor Foy told The Epoch Times that the original discussion between the committee majority and minority on witnesses asked what is known as a “consensus hearing” in which both parties get three witnesses and a say on the other side’s choices.

When the consensus hearing discussions broke down over Democratic disapproval of the proposed Republican witnesses, the building roll backed to a traditional system in which the minority was only able to offer two witnesses.

That forced the Republicans to use witnesses who could discuss the broad spectrum of issues presented by the Equality Act rather than those addressing only specific issues like the questions about women’s athletics, Foy said.

What is certain is what the trio of athletes would have told the committee about the Equality Act had they been permitted to present their qualified affidavit. In a word, they said “No!”

The committee hearing was requested to view a Senate version of the House-passed Equality Act, which redefines sex as a flexible and fancied identity rather than fixed biological properties.

The state of Connecticut has used the former definition for several years, with a decision that two biological males were able to play in what were previously female-only track and field competitions.

“The Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference began allowing boys who identify as girls to compete in girls’ sports. As a result, during all four years of high school, I was forced to compete against two biological boys identifying as girls,” Selina Soule said in her prepared testimony.
