Outsports Douses ADF in Hate After Judge Dismisses Transgender Suit

April 26th, 2021 1:53 PM

On Sunday, a federal judge in Connecticut dismissed a lawsuit by Alliance Defending Freedom against state policy allowing boys to intrude upon girls’ sports. SB Nation Outsports could not contain its contempt for the “hateful” Christian religious liberty group representing female plaintiffs against fake girls.

In response to the judge’s decision to toss its suit, the "extremist Christian anti-LGBTQ law group vowed to appeal,” Outsports’ Dawn Ennis wrote about ADF. The link in the previous sentence directs viewers to the Southern Poverty Law Center’s hateful and discredited list of so-called “hate groups.”

Outsports continued on with its own vile campaign of hate:

‘Unfortunately, this court has chosen to ignore our clients’ demoralizing experiences of losing to male runners,’ ADF’s legal Counsel Christiana Holcomb said in the hate group’s online statement, which misgenders two Black trans women named in the suit — former high school athletes Terry Miller and Andraya Yearwood — by repeatedly referring to them as males.”

Ennis also attacked ADF for not re-hashing a victory by plaintiff Chelsea Mitchell over Miller and Yearwood within nine days of its lawsuit in 2020. Those boys clearly took a dive in that race, attempting to sabotage the lawsuit against Connecticut’s policy. They never lost to Mitchell again after that veiled attempt to disprove their physical advantages over female rivals.

Ennis was so preoccupied by her hatred for ADF that she neglected to mention U.S. District Judge Robert Chatigny’s reason for dismissing the lawsuit. The Hill reported that he ruled the issue moot because the two transgender students identified in the lawsuit have graduated from high school.

The judge stated: “I conclude that the request to enjoin enforcement of the CIAC policy has become moot due to the graduation of Yearwood and Miller, whose participation in girls’ track provided the impetus for this action.”

Outsports posted a misleading statement by the ACLU, which represented the two boys who dominated high school sprint races in Connecticut, claiming the court decision was based on merit.

“This is good news for transgender students in Connecticut and around the country,” ACLU attorney Joshua Block said. “Today’s ruling shows that allowing transgender students to fully participate in school — including sports — is consistent with existing federal law. This is yet another sign that lawmakers attacking trans youth in states around the country have no legal basis for their claims. When Andraya and Terry ran in high school, they belonged on the girls’ teams because they are girls …”

Mitchell expressed a sentiment that a child can clearly see if not blinded by the LGBT agenda. “It’s discouraging that the court ruled to dismiss my right to compete on a level playing field,” she said. “Today’s ruling ignores the physical advantages that male athletes have over female athletes. Female athletes like me should have the opportunity to excel and compete fairly. No girl should have to settle into her starting blocks knowing that, no matter how hard she works, she doesn’t have a fair shot at victory.”

Fellow plaintiff Selina Soule (seen in above photo speaking at 2020 press conference) said she doesn’t want other girls to experience the pain and heartbreak of losing to boys with unfair physical advantages. Alanna Smith, the daughter of Hall of Fame baseball pitcher Lee Smith, called the court’s dismissal “disheartening.”

Ennis said the handwriting for the judge’s dismissal of the suit was on the wall after President Joe Biden reversed the Trump Administration’s support.
