Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden pledged again on Friday to sign the Equality Act, which would force public schools to allow biological males who identify as transgender girls into female athletics.

In a statement released by his campaign, Biden pledged to sign the bill while condemning what he called an “epidemic” of violence “against transgender and gender non-conforming people.”

The bill would alter the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to make “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” protected characteristics under federal anti-discrimination law. Among other things, that would force public schools to expand female athletic teams to include biological males who identify as transgender girls.

“My administration will enact the Equality Act to end legal discrimination against LGBTQ+ people, expand economic opportunities for LGBTQ+ people, reform our treatment of transgender and gender non-conforming individuals in our criminal justice system, ensure access to accurate identification documents, and improve government data collection to better track violence against the transgender community,” Biden said.

“I believe that Trans Lives Matter and, as president, I will fight on behalf of every vulnerable person in this country,” he added.

The Equality Act passed the House with unanimous Democratic support in May 2019, but failed to come up for a vote in the Republican-controlled Senate.

Biological males who identify as transgender have racked up accomplishments in female athletics.

Franklin Pierce University runner CeCe Telfer won an NCAA DII women’s track championship in May 2019. Telfer is a biological male who identifies as transgender and previously competed on Franklin Pierce’s men’s team, before switching to the women’s team.

University of Montana runner June Eastwood, a biological male who identifies as a transgender woman, was named the Big Sky Conference’s female athlete of the week in October 2019. Like Telfer, Eastwood competed on the university’s men’s team before switching to the women’s team.

The Biden campaign didn’t return an email seeking comment on the transgender athlete issue.

President Donald Trump’s administration has sought to limit girls’ sports to biological females.

The Department of Education sided in May with high school girls suing the state of Connecticut for allowing biological males who identify as transgender girls to compete in female athletics.

In June, the Department of Justice threw its support behind an Idaho law restricting girls’ sports to biological females.

A poll released in November 2019 found that less than a third of Americans believe biological males who identify as transgender should be allowed to compete on girls’ sports teams.

Another poll in October 2019 found that Americans said by a 57-20 margin that male athletes who self-identify as transgender have competitive advantages over female athletes.

    If I had any school aged children, I would l have to home school them, or work 2 or more jobs to put them in a private school so as not to be subjected to garbage like Joe Biden and the left are dishing out.

    I vote for transgenders to have their own competition. MUCH FAIR. If I were a girl I would sue base on “presence of hormones. ” Ever saw a woman turning man competing in male sports?

    Tranny’s are a very small part of the voter population and the Dems are so desperate for votes, they’ll even cater to them. Pathetic! And endangers America’s women and little girls since statistics already show some of them being raped.
