I never say this, but please humor me, because this response warrants it:
The North Carolina GOP has issued a statement in response to the NCAA’s pathetic turn to fringe leftist attack dogs.
In response to the NCAA, North Carolina GOP spokesperson Kami Mueller issued the following statement:
This is so absurd it’s almost comical. I genuinely look forward to the NCAA merging all men’s and women’s teams together as singular, unified, unisex teams. Under the NCAA’s logic, colleges should make cheerleaders and football players share bathrooms, showers and hotel rooms. This decision is an assault to female athletes across the nation. If you are unwilling to have women’s bathrooms and locker rooms, how do you have a women’s team? I wish the NCAA was this concerned about the women who were raped at Baylor. Perhaps the NCAA should stop with their political peacocking—and instead focus their energies on making sure our nation’s collegiate athletes are safe, both on and off the field.
And this is a point well made. Why are women in the NCAA not being allowed to compete on male teams?
It’s against NCAA rules, and it is discrimination, at least, by their standards of “discrimination.”
Also, unless every locker room and bathroom in every school that falls under the control of the NCAA is unisex, their strike at North Carolina during an election season comes across as petty and partisan.
There’s also the question of campus rape, alluded to by Mueller, in regards to Baylor.
Do I think that rape on college campuses is rampant?
Do I think it happens?
I know it does, and the goal should be to keep students safe and comfortable – not create environments where there are risks.
It is the maddening dichotomy of liberals that they will scream about a rape culture in one breath, but then demand that young men and women be forced into close proximity, in situations that have already been proven to be all too convenient for those with less than pure motivations.
This is how the left is working to subvert our culture and our very sense of decency: They are going after our youth, and in this case, punishing them to force compliance on a greater scale to their particular worldview.
This fight is just beginning.
