Transgender activists expressed outrage after President Joe Biden announced a policy pullback on transgender athletes in schools.
On Thursday, the White House released a statement announcing schools would be allowed to ban transgender students for participating in sports not in their biological gender.
The policy maintained the Biden administration’s opposition to states banning transgender students from sports nationwide.
Joe Biden managed to anger both those on the right opposing transgender athletes in sports and also transgender activists who were angry at his betrayal.
“Biden just betrayed the trans community,” transgender activist Erin Reed lashed out.
“I’m honestly stunned,” said Reed in further tweets. “It’s actually a roadmap to telling schools how to discriminate.”
“Honestly, this move by Biden to push a rule on trans kids in sports is not only a backwards betrayal, it force us to have to spend our time dealing with god damn sports instead of criminal bans on our healthcare. He could have just done nothing. This is legitimizing transphobia,” replied transgender activist Alejandra Caraballo.
“This is worse than doing nothing, it’s spreading thin already extremely limited time by trans folks to have to deal with this bullshit,” Caraballo said in another tweet.
“They are helping the anti-trans side and legitimizing their transphobic talking points,” Caraballo added.
“Appalling failure and abandonment from Bidens white house, which has up to now only ever paid lip service to trans people if it’ll get them good optics, but now is taking clear action siding with our oppressors by stepping on the necks of trans children f*** joe biden,” read another tweet.
“Biden just told trans kids to f* off. Just told trans adults f* you too,” said another critic.
“He’s on the states rights to criminalize our existence side cuz he’s an old ass white Catholic man. Only surprised he bothered to pretend to care during trans week,” the critic added.
“Biden is worthless. He’s always been worthless,” read another tweet.
Biden’s change of policy position comes amid his appalling polling numbers, and if he continues to upset his ‘woke’ base, it looks like it’s only set to get worse.
