4 WINDS USA NEWS RELEASE: Dept. of Education stops funding universities promoting transgender athletes

MADISON, Wisc., Oct. 19, 2020 /4 WINDS USA/ — The Department of Education has come to the conclusion that “gender identity” is not relevant to Title IX in sports.

President Nixon signed Title IX into law in 1972. It states, “No person in the United States shall, based on 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.”

On September 18, Franklin Pierce University will have to stop their “Transgender Participation and Inclusion Policy,” which allows biological males to compete in sports as females.

The private university is supposed to publicly post this policy in a “prominent location” on its website by October 2.

In 2019, transgender CeCe Tefler from the university won the 400 meter hurdles at the NCAA Divison 2 Championships. Tefler’s time was a collegiate-best of 57.53.

In 2003, 4 WINDS USA President Steve McConkey started fighting against the International Olympic Committee’s transgender policies. He was the only one who stood against this publicly.

From there, the transgender movement spread to state high schools, the NCAA, NFL, NBA, and MLB. Steve has fought this LGBT agenda every step of the way.

“We appreciate the Department of Education’s stand against transgender athletes,” states McConkey. “We are approaching the November 3 election. Recently, House Democrats passed the Equality Act that promotes transgenders and transgender athletes. Joe Biden recently said young kids can become transgenders if they decide to. We need to pray, stand, and vote.”

McConkey tried to sue the International Olympic Committee before the 2016 Olympics in Rio. He was concerned that intersex athletes (not transgender) would sweep the 800 meters. That is exactly what happened as they were allowed to have high testosterone levels.

The Olympics are postponed until next summer. After the Olympics, they plan to make it tougher for transgenders to compete by lowering testosterone levels down to 5 nanomoles instead of 10. They have already done so for intersex athletes.

Founded in 1988, 4 WINDS USA stands up worldwide for Christian athletes and provides BIG PLANET WATCH (4WindsUSA.com). Starting in world-class track and field ministries in 1981, Steve and Liz McConkey have worked through nine Olympics. In 2013, McConkey started standing up worldwide for Christian athletes in all sports. He was a successful USA National Track and Field Club Coach (82-92) and has ran over 68,000 miles.

McConkey graduated with honors from Western Kentucky University (Master of Public Health), Minnesota State University, Mankato (BS-Community Health), and Webster High School (WI). They have lived in Eugene, Dallas-Fort Worth, Minneapolis-St. Paul, and now Madison, Wisconsin. McConkey was born in Des Moines, Iowa before moving to NW Wisconsin after the sixth grade.
