In December 2016, The National Women’s Hockey League (NWHL) released a new Policy on Participation of Transgender Athletes. The new policy was created through “a joint effort between the NWHL and You Can Play” along with “additional counsel from policy and law advisors from the National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR)” and outlines the guidelines and process for determining eligibility for “athletes choosing to express their gender beyond the binary of female and male.”

Erin Buzuvis, Professor of Law, Western New England University and Kristine Newhall, Ph.D., Women’s Studies wrote a blog called Title IX Blog. They regularly write posts that disparage Women and Girls’ right to have opportunities based on sex. Here is a recent post authored by Newhall on transgender cases:
In July, the California Assembly adopted Assembly Joint Resolution No. 23, which affirmed that the California Assembly thinks Title IX, a federal law that specifically states that no person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving federal financial assistance, should be gutted to accommodate boys who feel like girls.
Fallon Fox is a violent Man named Boyd Burton who beats up Women for a living. He is able to do this thanks to the advocacy of the National Center of Lesbian Rights. In April 2015, the NCLR removed its name from an anti-lesbian petition against the Michigan Womyn’s Music Festival. This act caused Boyd to lose his mind, and he publicly berated Kate Kendell here.
In response, the NCLR SCRUBBED its website of the reference to its advocacy for Boyd.
New Jersey Democratic Assemblyman John J. Burzichelli has introduced legislation to undermine decades of work to create parity for girls in sports. A.B. 2224 allows a boy who identifies as a girl to participate in sex-segregated school programs and activities, including athletic teams and competitions, and use facilities consistent with the pupil’s gender identity, irrespective of the gender listed on the pupil’s records. The bill is similar to a California effort that decimated that state’s version of Title Nine.
In 2014, it is a Democratic priority to undo efforts to create parity in opportunity for girls.
