Anchorage State Senator Löki Tobin unleashed a vitriolic, profanity-laced diatribe against Alaskans who support newly enacted rules that bar gender-confused biological males from competing in girls’ high school sports.
In an Oct. 10 rant to her email followers, Tobin denounced new policies approved by the Alaska Schools Activities Association and the State Board of Education with a message titled, “Discrimination and hate are bullshit.”
For months now, Tobin has echoed the talking points of Planned Parenthood and ACLU of Alaska, claiming that biological males have a “right” to compete as girls, so long as they internally believe they are females trapped in male bodies.
In trying to make her point, Tobin, perhaps inadvertently, admitted that males have a natural physical advantage over girls.
She claimed that in high school she “wrestled against young men whose muscle mass was twice mine.”
Tobin then seemed to suggest that girls should just get over the fact that biological males might occasionally compete against them, stating that the world is “often seemingly unfair and filled with unwarranted obstacles.”

She then suggested that body types aren’t what really matter after all, claiming that “competitive advantage sometimes is not held within one’s body type. It may sound cliché, but it’s what’s inside that counts.”
Tobin went on to accuse the Alaska School Activities Association Board of Directors of pandering to “fear-mongering,” while “using kids as political pawns” in “adopting a discriminatory policy” against what she calls “trans girls.”
Not once, did Tobin address the substantial concerns, expressed by hundreds of Alaskans, that biological males present a threat to both the integrity and safety of girls’ high school sports. Instead, she stuck to her talking points, claiming that any effort to restrict males from competing as girls was amount to “state-mandated discrimination, bigotry and bullying.”
