Also, they want public funding, but still be allowed to discriminate. Wow

Just commented this on another post about the state potentially limiting or stopping state funding to private schools over the separation of church and state. This will not help the private school’s case

From the article:

> The Mid Vermont Christian School girls basketball team withdrew from the Vermont Division IV state tournament because of a refusal to play against an opponent with a transgender student-athlete. The No. 12 seed Eagles were scheduled to play a first-round game at No. 5 seed Long Trail on Tuesday night, but their withdrawal forfeited the game to the Mountain Lions.

> “We believe playing against an opponent with a biological male jeopardizes the fairness of the game and the safety of our players,” MVCS head of school Vicky Fogg wrote in an email to the Valley News on Wednesday evening. “Allowing biological males to participate in women’s sports sets a bad precedent for the future of women’s sports in general.”

It sends a strong message to their athletes that they lost their playoffs chance because their principal is full of hate.

I hope none of the MVCS students were counting on basketball scholarships.

Placing the safety of their female basketball team first seems like a reasonable decision by the school.

This is a high school basketball game, not an MMA match.

If they want to talk about fairness, whatever. But "safety" has absolutely nothing to do with it, and I can 100% guarantee that coach would have no problem if their team wanted to scrim against the boys team once in awhile for practice.

Have they (or any other girls team in VT) ever forfeited a game before because there were, say, some larger girls on the other team?
