I finally had to post a political article, copied from, January 26 weekly on-line edition. Many use their rights against others but that does not nullify the other person’s rights. I have commented in a few of my past Bible devotions that we are too much of a me, me, me peoples. Whose rights are violated The Honorable Judge Joseph R, Goodwin explains this well.

A recent challenge to the West Virginia’s Save Women’s Sports Act would have allowed males who identify as females to compete in girls’ and women’s sports.

Federal District Judge Joseph R. Goodwin ruled against the challenge. In his decision, he wrote: “While some females may be able to outperform some males, it is generally accepted that the average males outperform females athletically because of the inherent physical differences between the sexes.”

He continued, “This is not an overbroad generalization, but rather a general principle that realistically reflects the average physical differences between the sexes. Given [the challenger’s] concession that circulating testosterone in males creates a biological difference in athletic performance, I do not see how I could find that the state’s classification based on biological sex is not substantially related to its interest in providing equal athletic opportunities for females.”

Judge Goodwin noted that men and women are fundamentally and biologically different. “It Is beyond dispute that, barring rare genetic mutations…a person either has male sex chromosomes or female sex chromosomes and a transgender girl is a biological male.”
