Texas AG Ken Paxton Commits to Protecting Women’s Sports, Private Spaces

March 9, 2021

Yesterday, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton released a letter to President Joe Biden in which he committed to defend a fair playing field for female athletes as well as the privacy and safety of women in female-only spaces such as bathrooms and locker rooms. Paxton wrote:

“You have taken a drastic and unacceptable step toward eviscerating the concept of biological sex in American law. You and your progressive allies will not put men and boys in our women’s and girls’ bathrooms, locker rooms, or sports teams. And I’ll work just as hard in defense of efforts in Texas and elsewhere to pass laws protecting women and girls.”

In response, Terry Schilling, executive director of American Principles Project (APP), released the following statement applauding Paxton’s stand:

“After only a few weeks in office, Joe Biden has made clear he intends to impose a radical ideology on the rest of the country — one which undermines biological reality in law and especially threatens the athletic opportunities, privacy and safety of women and girls. Attorney General Paxton is exactly right to call out Democrats for these ‘insidious’ policies, and all Texans should be comforted to know he is fighting to preserve their rights in the face of the president’s outrageous actions.

“On behalf of countless concerned Americans, APP thanks Mr. Paxton for his bold defense of women’s rights and religious liberty, and we urge other states to follow Texas’ lead in standing up to the disastrous agenda being pursued by Democrats in Washington.”
