White House press secretary Jen Psaki brushed off concerns about President Joe Biden’s recent executive order mandating that any schools that receive federal funding must function as if biological males who claim to be females are the same and vice versa.
“What message would the White House have for trans girls and cis girls who may end up competing against each other and sparking some lawsuits and some concern among parents? So does the administration have guidance for schools and dealing with disputes arising over trans girls competing against and with cis girls?” a reporter asked at Tuesday’s press briefing, referencing cases in which parents were upset when biological males played in female sports. . .
