Senator Blackburn Says Facebook Removed Post About Biological Men Playing Women’s Sports

According to Friday reports, Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) was censored by Facebook for a post about biological males playing women’s sports.

“Biological men have no place in women’s sports,” Blackburn reportedly said on the social media giant, linking to a fundraising page.

Facebook then notified her that the post did not meet “community standards,” and that it was essentially muted. Nobody but the senator would be able to see the post.

“Big Tech and the Democrats are colluding to radically transform America,” Blackburn told Fox News. “They want to silence and censor conservatives for speaking out against their woke agenda. It does not take a biologist to know the difference between a man and a woman, and I will not be silenced or threatened by Silicon Valley oligarchs. Biological men have no place in women’s sports.”

The senator has often discussed the issue on Twitter, another Silicon Valley titan.

“It shouldn’t be up for debate. Biological men should not be allowed to compete in women’s sports,” she said in March.

“Democrats and the left-wing media think you are radical for wanting to keep biological males out of women’s sports,” she said in April.

Blackburn’s office did not immediately return a comment request from The Tennessee Star

Blackburn notoriously grilled then U.S. Supreme Court nominee Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson about the definition of the word “woman” during the judge’s confirmation hearings.

Jackson said she could not define the word because she is not a biologist.

In response to that line of questioning, which made headlines nationally, Sharon Gentry of the Metro Nashville School Board was caught on a hot microphone suggesting that she wanted to set Blackburn on fire.

The senator’s Facebook post is a continuation of an ongoing debate in the United States about whether transgender women – biological men – should be able to compete in women’s sports.

Last year, Gov. Bill Lee signed H.B. 3 into law.

That law says that “a student’s gender for purposes of participation in a public middle school or high school interscholastic athletic activity or event must be determined by the student’s sex at the time of the student’s birth, as indicated on the student’s original birth certificate.”

    I got an idea: let’s make Marsha Blackburn’s husband show HIS birth certificate before we allow him to use the men’s room to prove to the Authorities of Morality that he is not a trans-man, but a biological cis-man. After all, little boys using the men’s room might get scared if they see a trans-man with still some female anatomy sharing a toilet or wash basin with them. Now, we can’t have that, can we?

    Well take women out of men sports then. They don’t need to be in men sports either. Women got to much rights as it is now.

    It is long overdue for Face Book to be broken up much like the telephone company of old. It is truly a monopoly that is biased and suppresses speech not in line with their political ideology. Title IX not only created more funding for female sports, it also led to an increase in scholarships for women athletes. If the slots on women’s teams go to male athletes it would stand in logic that so too should the scholarship monies. I don’t support that, I also do not support men competing in women’s sports. The bottom line is the male athletes taking these slots from women do so because they are unable to compete with their biological gender.

    You go Marsha! Girls cannot competetively compete against biological males. What happened to Title IX and the Senator’s 1st Amendment right. We are in trouble.

    Those who SAY they support women’s rights now no longer do. They are willing to sacrifice those rights to
    Men who SAY they identify as and/or have undergone medical sex tampering.

  6. Larry Hattis

    We continuous hear so much about women rights being violated but yet they seem to over look their rights when it comes to sports. Why is that ??

    I just can’t seem to understand why they throw out all self responsibility by committing sexual acts without any regards to the consequences and ignore the fact that men with demented minds are effecting all ages of female sports.

    OK, it’s time for a “RESET”.
    The original reason for separating sports into two groups was because people who were born with two “X” chromosomes were found to have a genetic disadvantage versus people born with an “X” and a “Y” chromosome. Those with “XY” chromosomes tend to be bigger and stronger than those with “XX” chromosomes. This biological fact was, and is, the real reason for two sets of sporting events.
    The ‘Left’ seems to have gotten confused now that we are using the terms boy/girl, man/woman for sporting events.
    The “RESET” is as follows:
    There will be two sets of classifications for sporting events. The new classifications will now be called “XX” and “XY”.
    The “XX” classification will be open to birth girls & women, and to all males/men/boys/non-binary who have transitioned from originally having been born as female. (Regardless of whether they have undertaken the reassignment surgery. The surgery is not relevant to their performance on the sporting field.)
    The “XY” classification will be open to birth boys & men, and to all females & others who have transitioned from originally having been born as male.
    There you go. PROBLEM SOLVED, with fairness and with no disrespect to anyone and hopefully no hurt feelings.
