Letter: It's not even an issue, it's a culture war

Echola contends the trans athlete bill is really "a culture war fought by crybaby old men who are absolutely beside themselves over things like the gender of a plastic toy for babies or children's

Just because Matt Noah was himself suspended by the US Soccer Club, that doesn't make him some expert in who does or doesn't belong in sports . In fact, it makes him the opposite.

He and the authors of the bill haven't actually consulted any medical professionals, or frankly, students or school boards, about this issue. Because it's not a real issue. It's a fabrication created entirely to marginalize an already marginalized group of people. It's a culture war fought by crybaby old men who are absolutely beside themselves over things like the gender of a plastic toy for babies or children's books. Pure lunacy.

As the Club wrote about Matt Noah, and The Forum reported: "In the end, Mr. Noah overreacts to any perceived wrongdoing and then cannot let anything go . This ongoing pattern of conduct is detrimental to the game and our organization."
