Welcome to Everything Croton--a collection of all things Croton, our history, our homes, our schools, our businesses, our houses of worship-----in short, EVERYTHING CROTON.

EVERYTHING CROTON has received a fair number of questions, concerns, etc. from local parents whose daughters were relying on "sports scholarships" etc.---and now that President Biden has...well....the below article pretty much sums it up.

Parents with questions, concerns, etc. should address these issues with their respective school districts.  Your editor cannot speak to how this will "affect religious schools".  Again, speaking with school officials directly is your best bet.  Good luck. 

Biden sparks TERF war with gender discrimination order

WASHINGTON — President Biden set off a heated identity politics debate less than 24 hours into his presidency when he signed a gender discrimination order that has drawn heat from critics who accuse him of erasing women’s rights.

Language in the order would allow transgender women to participate in women’s sport leagues............

As more transgender athletes have begun fighting to participate in women’s sports, a debate has intensified over whether they should compete on the same playing field, given the biological differences in endurance and muscle mass.

The implied politicization of gender in sports drew immediate outrage online with “#BidenErasedWomen” and “#TERFs” becoming some of the top trending Twitter hashtags in the US on Thursday morning, as two sides of the political debate duked it out.


UPDATED: A READER PROVIDED AN additional item--this is an EDITORIAL LINK;  I AM TURNING IT ON HERE; the issue of scholarships and more is indeed touched upon.


  1. Thanks. There's also an editorial and if it's ok, I'll post the link here for people to look at. I am making some inquiries at school. Biden’s executive order unlevels the playing field for girls Mere hours after stressing the need for “unity,” President Biden sparked a new civil war with an executive order letting transgender women compete in women’s sports.

    On social media, #BidenErasedWomen and #TERFs (an acronym for “trans-exclusionary radical feminist”) trended following the action. That’s understandable: It’s one thing, after all, to ban discrimination; it’s another to tell schools and colleges that transwomen athletes — biologically born boys who now identify as female — must be allowed to compete with biological women and girls, despite their physical advantages.

    The notion is patently ridiculous and may result in millions of girls losing out on prestigious sports victories (and maybe scholarships that go with them). It also risks greater injuries to women. A better solution, perhaps, might be to give trans athletes a league of their own.

    Meanwhile, the US Education Department will now switch sides in two court battles, one in Connecticut and another in Idaho, over whether transgender athletes are treated by their biological sex or by how they identify.
