Doesn’t the equality act also mean cisgender (normal) men can participate in women’s sports?

The act says no person can be discriminated against because of their gender identification.   If a cisgender is being denied the same opportunity a transgender is given, isn’t this discrimination against the cisgender person?

So, under this act, doesn’t a cisgender person have to be given the same right of participation a transgender person is given?

    You bet it is.  The YMCA was forced to take girls, the BSA was forced to take girls, the Little League was forced to take girls, and more.  No one is forcing the WNBA to take guys, no one if forcing the college soft ball teams to take guys, no one is forcing the women's soccer teams to take guys, and more.

    In what world is that fair?  In what domain is that equality?

    There is no legal definition of "cisgender" (or transgender for that matter).  If "gender identity" = sex in law then any man by self-ID can just declare himself a woman and legally be one. Then he is allowed in any women's formerly sex segregated space, including a locker room, a sports team, or a prison cell. It is very, very obvious how badly this could go wrong and Democrats just don't f#cking care. Women have already been beaten and raped (in prison) because of this policy. They don't care.

    No. making up new words does nothing to change reality. They are attempting to "mandate" you are "required" to validate the insecurity and presentation of another so that "they" can feel more comfortable in "their" choice. Allow them to remove your fight to think and you will become as dumb as they are.
