Wingnut Bob Knight is scared of gender reassignment
Knight: “the blurring of the sexes is a direct insult to God.”
Robert Knight just gives me too much good material. The male head of the Concerned Women for America’s Culture and Family Institute spews off frequently — he targets gays because of heterosexual child pornographer, says judges are out to destroy marriage at all costs, and that homos are taking over the nation’s capital.
Now he is getting his knickers in a twist over the United States Golf Association’s announcement of a new policy under which “transgender athletes will be eligible to compete two years after having gender reassignment surgery.” The International Olympic Committee and England’s Ladies Golf Union already permit “female athletes who have undergone gender reassignment” to compete in their women’s competitions, so this is not breaking a precedent — except in the U.S. Knight is outraged:
“The USGA has now surrendered to the decadence and political correctness that is sweeping over Europe,” he says. “One would have thought that the USGA would have had more backbone. The women’s golf tour should be about women, not castrated males.”
Knight adds that “the blurring of the sexes is a direct insult to God and athletes who expect to complete with their own [gender].”
The USGA oversees many of the most prestigious golfing events in America, including the U.S. Open, the U.S. Women’s Open, the U.S. Senior’s Open, and ten national amateur championships. Knight acknowledges the esteemed history of the Association, noting that “the USGA prides itself in their traditions. That is why it is especially shocking that they would go along with something so radically wrong. They have a strange idea of gender equity.”
