(TargetLiberty.org) – The issue of transgender people participating in sports has been in the spotlight after University of Pennsylvania swimmer Lia Thomas, a biological male, beat biological females in an NCAA tournament. Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) brought the issue up at Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s Supreme Court confirmation hearing on March 22. The candidate’s response didn’t sit well with a number of senators, including Rand Paul (R-KY).
It all started when Blackburn asked Jackson to define a woman. Instead of just answering the question, she dodged it by saying she would need to listen to the facts of a case and look at the law before she answered the question. Her evasive answer caused Paul to call her out during an interview with former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer on Newsmax.
Paul told Spicer that Jackson’s inability to define what a woman is raises questions about whether she’s capable of ruling on Title IX sex discrimination cases. He said his biggest problem with her was that she was unable to “answer even the simplest questions.” He explained that her responses make him think her stance will “lead to real chaos in women’s sports and women’s athletics.”
Do you agree with Senator Paul? Should Jackson be allowed to sit on the highest court in the land when she can’t even answer the question — what is a woman?
