White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre recently refuted questions surrounding the concerns of parents with daughters in sports, who might compete against transgender females (males who identify as female). The interaction during the press briefing took an intense turn as Jean-Pierre called the concerns as “dangerous.”
A reporter questioned how the President would address parents worried about their daughters’ safety in potential physical competition with transgenders.
Jean-Pierre refused to answer the question, stating, “What you’re alluding to is basically saying that transgender kids are dangerous. It sounds like that’s what you’re saying.”
The discussion underscored the contentiousness of the topic. Several states have already enacted laws barring transgender females from participating in women’s sports, citing similar concerns about fairness and safety.
