Shawnee Council Pen Pointless Note On Transgender Athletes

It's certainly fair to debate the politics of the controversial trend.

However, we kind of a agree with council member Jill Chalfie who questioned the value of the screed in the agenda of a small Kansas town.

Here's the word . . .

Councilmember Jacklynn Walters proposed the language to be changed to the statement that eventually passed.

Thomas, Walters, and the other five councilmembers who voted to put the issue on the legislative agenda declined an interview, but Walters sent a statement on behalf of her and her colleagues:

“Last year, a bill to protect fairness in women’s sports passed the legislature to ensure an equal playing field for women so they can fairly participate in athletics due to the distinct physiological advantages held by biological males over biological females. It narrowly missed becoming law and may be brought up again this year. This is an issue that impacts every family in Shawnee who believes in fair competition and certainly every parent that has a daughter playing competitive sports. Maintaining simple guidelines – which have been in place for decades - that ensure the fair playing field continues for women should not be controversial. The people of our community now know their City Council stands for fairness and truth.”
