    Nikki Haley writes at National Review Online about efforts to protect women's sports from today's gender wars.

  • When I was a teenager, tennis was my life.
  • I started playing when I was ten. By the time I was 13, it was all I wanted to do. I practiced 24/7. A lot of days, my parents wouldn't see me - I'd be up and at the courts before dawn, and back after dusk. On weekends, I got up extra early because our small South Carolina town only had a few courts. I wanted to make sure I got one before someone else did. ...
  • ... My dream was to be on the U.S. women's team and meet my sports heroes, Chrissie Evert and Martina Navratilova. Of course, I never would have made it - I clearly didn't! - but I still had hope. ...
  • ... Will today's young girls have that hope? Will they have any chance of being the best in their schools, much less in their districts or states? I worry many won't, and not just in tennis. Across the sporting world, the game is being rigged against women and in favor of biological men.
  • President Biden is the latest man to do the rigging, which is strange coming from someone billed as a defender of women. In one of his first acts as president, he signed an executive order paving the way for a federal mandate that all schools receiving federal funding let biological men play on women's sports teams. The order was framed as a matter of transgender rights. But really, it was an attack on women's rights. ...
  • ... Transgender kids deserve support and respect. The fact remains, however, that biological boys and girls are built differently. The best male athletes have a natural advantage over the best female athletes. You have to ignore science not to see it.
