Does Biden’s EO effectively kill the Protect Women’s Sports Act of 2020?

Which was submitted by Tulsi Gabbard.   It seems Biden’s order directly prohibits these protections for women in sports.

    It's a joke. Biological women won't stand a chance competing against them.

    Gabbard sponsored the anti-trans bill H.R. 8932 (the "Protect Women's Sports Act" of 2020), but Congress never passed it. You can't kill what was never alive.

    Biden's executive order is contrary to a recent office of civil rights ruling as well as a couple of women's protections that have been introduced but not passed.

    That's the problem with executive orders:  A single swipe of the pen can by one person can in an instance undo contracts and legislation that had to go through the legislative process over years.   Title IX for decades has protected women in sports, some would say even advantaged women in sports.    A single signature changes all that until another president signs another executive order reversing Biden's decision.

    The Protection of Women's Sports Act was killed in Congress last January (2020) but yes, the EO runs counter to what H.R.5603 would have done. Now we get to wait and see if Tulsi Gabbard's* retirement from Congress is so she can prep for another Presidential run in 2024. 

    * Dear, ?, Gabbard is no longer in Congress so she can't get any bills passed there.

    @Robin: Love the framing. It's not anti-trans to allow women to have their own leagues. I know you libs hate different groups having their own things, but it's a first amendment right. 

    @Anonymous: Techincally EO's are limited in what they can do. The problem is that the courts have repeatedly failed to respect these limitations and even been inconsistent on when certain limitations apply. 

    For example, EO's are not supposed to be so vast that they lead to certain things getting banned and yet that is exactly what this EO does and what other EO's have done in the past. 

    Answer:

    Good lord, the answers are so f*ucking ignorant. lol

    Answer: 

    No. Tulsi can in fact pass her bill, which would in fact get rid of the executive order. 

     

    Executive orders are to carry out the law, not to write law. For this reason the law comes first much like the constitution comes before secondary law. 

    The real issue here is not that Tulsi can't continue in her efforts to get the law passed, but that fellow democrats won't vote for it. She likely won't even be able to get republicans to vote for the bill since they likely support the executive order even if I'm sure they will tell their supporters that they don't.

    Yep.   Tulsi’s protections can’t be passed because Biden has made an executive order prohibiting them.
