Governor of South Dakota Kristi Noem has promised to protect women’s sports, preventing transgender woman from competing. But now, the Biden Administration is threatening to defund lunch programs for schools that don’t adopt Biden’s Title IX policies, The Daily Wire reports.
“President Biden is holding lunch money for poor Americans hostage in pursuit of his radical agenda,” Noem said in a statement Thursday morning. “He is insisting that we allow biological males to compete in girls’ sports or else lose funding for SNAP and school lunch programs.”
“South Dakota will continue to defend basic fairness so that our girls can compete and achieve. I would remind President Biden that we have defeated him in litigation before and are ready to do so again,” Noem added, referencing the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) vaccine mandate, which was struck down.
“Mr. President,” the governor warned, “we’ll see you in court.”
South Dakota will stand up to defend freedom. @JoeBiden see you in court.

From The Daily Wire…
Noem’s warning draws on a promise from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) that it will interpret “the prohibition on discrimination based on sex found in Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 … to include discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.”
This would mean that schools that do not allow biological males in women’s sports, women’s locker rooms, or women’s restrooms would be considered to be discriminating against students based on their sexual orientation or gender identity.
