“I told my wife that this was not fair. I felt frustrated that, in an indirect way, I was now supporting someone’s gender confusion. To boot, they were now playing against my daughter and her teammates.”
“Another parent turned to me and said, ‘Did you see that? She was hit by that boy?’” he recalled.
“I had missed the actual hit, but felt the weight of everyone staring at me, including the opposing team,” Luis added.
“She was playing for fun, and this was her final year doing it. She felt robbed. I felt deflated and powerless,” Luis said.
“At what point does someone’s gender dysphoria cross the empathy boundary? In my case … my daughter was injured.”
A representative of the Independent Council on Women’s Sports blamed California Governor Gavin Newsom for allowing boys to compete in girls’ sports, leading to injuries and unfairness.
“The Governor dismisses situations like this girl’s career-ending injury as unimportant to him,” the the Independent Council on Women’s Sports said of Gavin Newsom.
“[Newsom] believes the well-being of ‘so few’ boys is paramount when measured next to safety and fairness for girls. These boys are ‘Gavin’s Golden Boys.’ They are allowed to do whatever they want and girls are acceptable collateral damage.”
“It’s time to stand up, speak up, and sue. Putting girls at known increased risk and stealing their opportunities is unethical.”
