Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Opposes Males In Female Sports

Democratic presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. said he opposes biological males competing in female sports.

“I am against people participating in women’s sports who are biologically male,” Kennedy said on CNN. “I think women 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.”

Kennedy said his opposition to “transgender” athletes participating in women’s sports represents another area where he and President Joe Biden “differ really dramatically.” He also opposed “cancel culture” because his wife, actress Cheryl Hines, allegedly missed out on job opportunities for supporting his candidacy.

The House recently passed legislation to prevent biological males from competing as “transgender” athletes in female sports at schools across the U.S. Democrats accused Republicans of “bullying transgender” students by drafting the bill.

The Protection of Women and Girls in Sports Act passed the House in a 219-203 vote, with all Republicans voting in favor of the bill and all Democrats voting against it. Biden said he would veto the legislation if it arrived on his desk.

Recently, Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) blocked the Senate from passing a bill preventing biological males from competing as “transgender” athletes on female sports teams at schools and universities. Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) urged his colleagues to pass the bill.

Tuberville, who previously served as head football coach at Auburn University and the University of Mississippi, noted the importance of Title IX in providing females with opportunities in sports.

“Title IX was just starting to be implemented when I took the job,” Tuberville said on the Senate floor. “I was there to see its incredible impact it had on young girls all over this country. For the first time, the young women I coached had equal access to facilities, resources, and competition.”

“I saw those hardworking athletes go on to earn college scholarships, start careers and become leaders in their own communities,” he added.

Title IX was enacted in 1972, prohibiting gender discrimination in schools or education programs that receive funding from the federal government.

Kennedy joined author Marianne Williamson in the Democratic presidential primary against Biden.

“I think our country’s heading in a bad direction, and that’s why I’m running,” the nephew of late President John F. Kennedy and son of former U.S. attorney general and assassinated 1968 presidential candidate Robert Kennedy said.
