    Yes, the Equality Act end the legal recognition of biological sex ...  not gender, but sex.

    Asking if biological males be allowed to dominate women's sports is a good question.  One that has never been properly discussed before.  Suddenly, we have a political climate where the leaders feel they can cram their ideological bills down our throats without any discussion on the matter.  What happened?  How or why did a "trans" lobby get the ear of our political system to the point where they get their bill passed without any of the rest of us getting to have a say on it?  Not even a debate anywhere.

    This shows that politics is way beyond corrupted.  It was never meant as a vehicle for special interests to push their ideological vehicles into the mainstream.  Perhaps we need to go back to plebiscites for any and all of these bills that just get rubber stamped by incoming presidents because they were paid off during their run up to Presidency.

    If it did happen then women's sports would lose status. The push for equal pay for winning a women's event would become blunted and all genuine female athletes would be left without any place to compete.  There are always consequences for ill considered changes.

    Yes, that’s exactly what it is.  Anyone who is transgender bid already subject to all the non discrimination laws afforded to their sex.  The “equality” act is simply about treating someone as something they are not.  

    I don’t care what anyone identifies as, but a man saying he identifies as female doesn’t make him so.

    When leftists intentionally fail to respect reality things like this happen. Instead of making things better they end up ruining things all because they refuse to admit the facts. Just because your ideology says "equality is good" doesn't mean that you should simply ignore facts to appease it. In fact, if the facts fail to follow your ideology then you should change your ideology. 

    Of course, all of this is made worse due to the fact that the government and left wingers have decided to appease the idiotic demands of transgenders that are built around the delusions of mental illness. Now instead of facts being respected falsehoods are respected so the mentally ill can feel better about themselves. This nonsense ruins sports for everyone else and even violates association rights, but none of the appeasing morons care and in fact think they are doing the right thing. 

    It could also be argued that this nonsense is oddly enough appeasing the demands of feminists that hate the idea of male and female sports even if it is exists to give women a league where they can more readily compete. 

    And btw, this idea that you have a right to not be discriminated against runs counter to the very foundation of human rights. Without the right to discriminate there is no such thing as negative rights. The right to make your own choices in life and towards your own person is built on the right to say no. This idea that an employer, a home owner, a business or anyone else has to serve the LGBT community, blacks, women, men, whites, Hispanics, Orientals, Indians, American Indians, Muslims, Christians or anyone else is complete and utter bullshit and has been since it first appeared in the 1964 civil rights act. The fact that liberals and the establishment continues to support these laws should only tell you that they are opposed to human rights, voluntary consent, and the foundation in which they are built. No means no, not only in cases of rape, but in all things whatsoever.

    No. Men should not be in women's sports just because they are mentally ill.
