NEWS RELEASE: Two state bills would eliminate transgender athletes, plus one athlete is suing USA Powerlifting

MADISON, Wisc., Jan. 13, 2021 /4 WINDS USA/ — There are three events taking place this week involving transgender athletes.

Transgender powerlifter JayCee Cooper is suing USA Powerlifting for being barred from competition. Cooper’s lawsuit was filed Tuesday in Minnesota state court by Gender Justice. They assert that banning Cooper and other trans athletes violates the Minnesota Human Rights Act.

The North Dakota state legislature introduced House Bill 1298 that would ban transgender athletes.

Montana legislators are preparing House Bills 112 and 113 that would ban transgender athletes and prevent minors from receiving gender transition treatment.

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. McConkey has fought this LGBT agenda every step of the way.

“There is an assault on women’s athletics when transgenders are allowed to pose as women,” states McConkey. “Society is in trouble when people cannot see the difference between a male and female in athletics. Nearly 75% of Americans believe transgenders have an unfair adavantage over women. Our governing bodies need to stop the illegal dominance of transgender athletes.”

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 women’s 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, the Olympic Committee plans 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.

Recently, the British Journal of Sports Medicine published a study reporting that transgender athletes were still 12% stronger than women, even after two years of hormone treatment.
