Posted 13 days ago


Biden Attorney General nominee Merrick Garland refused to answer during his confirmation hearing on Monday whether allowing biological males to compete in women’s sports was “fundamentally unfair to female athletes” and instead just said that it was a “very difficult societal question.”

“In my last 20 seconds, I’m going to ask you, if you agree with this statement, allowing, and I’m not suggesting the answer one way or the other, I just want to know what you believe, allowing biological males to compete in an all female sport, deprives women of the opportunity to participate fully and fairly in sports, and is fundamentally unfair to female athletes,” Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) said.

“This is a very difficult societal question that you’re asking me here,” Garland responded. “I know what underlies it.”

“I know, but you’re going to be attorney general,” Kennedy responded.

Garland responded by suggesting that he might not be the one who has to make policy-related decisions on the matter, but he again declined to answer the question, saying it was “a difficult question.”
