In a surprising turn of events, Scott Love, the librarian at the Mary L. Stephens Davis Branch Library in Davis, California, made a decision that raised eyebrows by abruptly shutting down a Sunday event, invoking the protection of free speech laws.
The Speaker Referred to Transgender Athletes
The unprecedented order to disband the event occurred just ten minutes after it began, right after the first speaker referred to transgender athletes competing in women’s sports as male.
Former NCAA Athlete Speaks Out
During the event held on Sunday, Sophia Lorey, a former NCAA athlete and outreach coordinator for CA Family Council, passionately stated, “Current 10-year-old girls cannot live out the same dream [I had] as long as men are allowed to compete in women’s sports.”
Event Organized by Moms for Liberty
The incident unfolded during an event organized by Moms for Liberty (MFL), Yolo County, which featured a lineup of speakers connected with the Interscholastic Federation (CIF), NCAA athletes, and “legal experts on Title IX.”
Securing Sports for Girls
The primary focus of the gathering was to advocate for equitable and secure sports opportunities for girls.
Things Took a Turn
The atmosphere took a tumultuous turn when former NCAA athlete Sophia Lorey took the stage and broached the subject of the inherent physical advantage that biological males hold over females in sports, referring to them as male athletes.
She Said “Biological Girls”
As Lorey continued to express her viewpoint, using terms like “biological girls” and “biological men,” the librarian intervened, demanding that references to transgender females as males cease.
Chaotic Chanting Ensued
This intervention led to a chaotic disruption, with members of the pro-LGBTQ community in attendance vociferously countering Lorey’s stance with the chant, “TRANS WOMEN ARE WOMEN.”
Impact Has Reached 320,000 Girls
Beth Bourne, President of MFL, emphasized the far-reaching implications of the CIF’s policies, which have an impact on over 320,000 high school girls in California.
Lots of People Don’t Understand
She said the fact that very few parents and athletes fully comprehend the origins and practical implications of these policies within educational institutions.
She Was Very Disappointed
Bourne expressed deep disappointment over the event’s abrupt conclusion.
Trying to Open Up a Dialog
She noted that while the left often resorts to tactics like censorship and hostility, MFL remains steadfast in its commitment to fostering open dialogues and providing platforms for diverse viewpoints to be heard.
Planning to Reschedule the Event
Despite the setback, Bourne and MFL remain undeterred, planning to reschedule the event in the upcoming fall.
Different Perspectives Should Be Heard
This determination stems from the belief in the importance of creating an environment where a wide spectrum of perspectives can be presented, debated, and understood.
