(LifeSiteNews) – In the latest display of scientific and educational authorities prioritizing gender ideology over scientific soundness, the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) published a framework to teachers and school administrators to articulate “gender-inclusive biology.”
The document, by Sam Long, Lewis Steller, and River Suh, argues that “science curriculum must adapt to serve our students and prepare them for the future” because “gender and sexual diversity are more visible than ever.” It laments that “only 2.4% of LGBTQ students [saw] any LGBTQ-inclusive science content in 2017,” a lack that allegedly “impacts students’ career pathways — LGBTQ high school seniors who saw positive LGBTQ representation in science class were 17.3% more likely to choose a STEM major.”
The entire country has seen what happens when men enter women's sports.
Lia Thomas is a biological male, but he was nonetheless allowed swim against elite female competitors to win an NCAA Freestyle competition, much to the disappointment of those women who had trained so hard to compete.
SIGN THE PETITION TO BAN MALES FROM WOMEN'S SPORTS TODAY
Males have a natural advantage over females in the vast majority of sports, so allowing them to enter women's sports can:
- crush the motivation of the biological girls who have worked hard to compete on a level playing field
- put females into harm's way in contact sports and locker rooms
- deprive women of their right to fairly compete for college scholarships and many other accolades
We all know the spectacle of Lia Thomas defeating those female swimmers was a charade, a mockery of women's sports, but now it's time to do something about it.
Please SIGN this urgent petition calling on members of Congress to pass a law banning the participation of biological males in women's sports.
This is not just about ensuring biological girls and women can compete fairly and win in their chosen sports, but it's also a major safety issue in contact sports and the dangerous use of women's locker rooms by gender-confused males.
Some of you will remember Fallon Fox, the male MMA fighter who claimed to be a woman and left his female opponent concussed and with a fractured skull.
Fox later announced on social media that he enjoys "smacking up" women who "talk transphobic nonsense."
Any reasonable person knows men shouldn't compete against women, but some people are too politically correct to take a stand and protect girls and women from this madness.
It's now time to join the growing pushback against the gender-confused lobby and their dangerous beliefs that have literally left some female competitors in the hospital.
Please SIGN this common sense petition calling on Congress to ban all males from competing in women's sport.
Future generations will look back with gratitude on those who stood on the right side of history, defending women from these very confused males.
Nothing less than a federal ban on biological males forcing their way into women's sport is enough, so this petition will be sent to all members of Congress demanding legislative action.

The framework claims it will help “support and reduce harm to LGBTQ students,” “engage all students with inquiry into science in society,” and “develop student empathy toward diverse identities and perspectives.” It encourages the use of “language that turns toward, not away from, diversity and complexity,” including “sex assigned at birth” for biological sex, “learn[ing] your students’ names and gender pronouns,” “mother” replaced with “gestational parent, and using students’ last names instead of first names for rosters.
“During a lesson on pedigrees and genetic inheritance, the terms ‘mother,’ ‘father,’ and ‘biological parent’ are often used to describe the two individuals who create the egg and sperm that become a new person. However, we know that the relationship of these three people cannot always be described by those words,” the guide says. “This idea of ‘the two individuals who created the egg and sperm that became a new person’ has no official, accurate, and inclusive name in the English language. So this is a great opportunity for students to co-create language that accurately describes this idea.”
Underscoring the activist purpose of the framework, it states that “part of creating a gender-inclusive biology curriculum requires identifying places where societal power and oppression impact specific marginalized gender groups, including transgender, intersex, and gender non-conforming people,” with the issue of sex-specific athletic programs cited as an example.
In public schools, a deluge of examples of left-wing teachers using their taxpayer-funded positions of authority to expose captive underage audiences to various far-left doctrines, from critical race theory to gender fluidity, often with school officials actively conspiring to keep parents in the dark. This has inspired a wave of state laws placing new limits and scrutiny on classroom content.
The same issue has manifested in private schools, as well, which are not subject to direct state oversight like public schools and therefore represents a more complicated challenge. While parents are not forced to send their children or tax dollars to private schools, many parents expect private schools to offer an alternative to such issues in public schools.
