Sheryl may benefit from networking with Michael McKibben at Aim4truth.org. as he is documenting the conflicts of interest within the federal judiciary which impedes impartiality and justice inside a rigged system.
Meanwhile Headlineswithavoice posted video of Rod Rosenstein being mauled by a Republican House member for failing to deliver requested documents to Congress. Worth a look because that House member might be a useful ally in your fight. Keep fighting the good fight, Sheryl!
I am old enough to remember when Renee Richards hit the women's tennis circuit in 1979.
Now they want us to believe the Left did not know what would happen when when "fixed" boys began performing on girls teams. The Left set us up for problems, again.

I remember many years ago the East German women were winning everything at the Olympic Games. They were very masculine looking, but their physical exams showed that they were women. Since this was before 1991, the Soviet Union was still intact and closed to the world as to their training methods. As science advanced and more was known about genetics, it was eventually learned that these apparent women had XY chromosomes even though they had external female characteristics at birth. I don't remember how the Olympic committee resolved the situation because these women had not been fed hormones or any performance enhancing chemicals, they were just naturally more muscular.
I've always been perplexed by the existence of the Gay Games. Surely, sexuality has nothing to do with athletic performance, making this venture more than proudly discriminatory. Or... DOES sexuality relate to athletics in some way? Awkward.
What are the entry criteria? Is this open to heterosexual people, or not? How is sexuality verified with suitable rigour? Or is it a self-declaration? Does a one-night stand count if done purely to qualify, and what evidence is required?
What about "gender cheats": if a heterosexual person won gold, would they be stripped of their medal and disqualified? If not, would there be some incredible backlash? Or would the result be accepted in the spirit of "inclusivity"?
No doubt there would be many who would object to those entering a "gay" event simply to improve ones chances. And there would be others who object on the basis that not being gay (or LBGAtoZ) was not in the spirit.
BOTH scenarios would highlight the gross paradox of the entire thing. Personally I'd like to see the whole thing flooded with serious "straight" athletes just to see what happens.
