On his first day in office, President Joe Biden had signed 17 executive orders. One combats discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. No sooner than this happened, the hashtag #BidenErasedWomen started trending on Twitter as many expressed concern over the fact that the executive orders or EO will supposedly allow transgender female athletes to compete on women's sports teams, and Donald Trump Jr wasted no time in jumping on the bandwagon.

Taking to Twitter, Don Jr mocked Biden's Preventing and Combating Discrimination on the Basis of Gender Identity or Sexual Orientation executive order. The policy addresses Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and other gender discrimination policies such as Title IX and the Fair Housing Act and Section 412 of the Immigration and Nationality Act. He wrote, "Identify how you want no one cares but, when you start destroying biological women's life's work is sports we should be reassessing out sanity," adding, "Where are the feminists? Where are the soccer moms? Asking for talented female athletes everywhere."

Many others slammed Biden's executive order and among them was author of 'Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters' Abigail Shrier. She wrote, "On day 1, Biden unilaterally eviscerates women's sports. Any educational institution that receives federal funding must admit biologically-male athletes to women's teams, women's scholarships, etc. A new glass ceiling was just placed over girls."

Many supported Donald Trump Jr's tweet and said that their nation was being destroyed. "It is horrible what is happening with an idiot and a drop of a pen. America is being destroyed! Our voice needs to be heard. This is not what the majority of American people wanted. It's a nightmare!"

"This is what happens when you pretend men and women are the same. This is what happens when you ignore biology. Biological men don't belong in women's sport. Any person who suggests otherwise doesn't live in reality. #BidenErasedWomen," one tweeted. "Today: Men gained a free pass into women's prisons. Men gained a free pass to play in women's sports. Men gained a free pass into women's changing rooms. Men gained a free pass into women's rape crisis centres. Today, in America, women lost everything. #BidenErasedWomen" another tweeted.

One even validated the claim that men had a biological advantage over women. "100m dash Rio 2016 slowest man (finals): 10.06 seconds. Fastest woman (finals): 10.71 seconds. Men's world record: 9.58 sec Women's world record: 10.49 sec So the slowest man in the finals breaks the women's world record. It's not a level playing field. Pun intended."

Coming to facts, however, Biden's newly signed executive order doesn't exactly address athletics in detail. The only reference to sports briefly mentioned that "children should be able to learn without worrying about whether they will be denied access to the restroom, the locker room, or school sports".

Transgender athletes who compete at the college and Olympic levels already are subject to special requirements. According to Transathlete.com, the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) does not require gender-confirming surgery or legal recognition of a player's transitioned sex in order for transgender athletes to participate on a team that matches their identity. Reports debunking the claims on social media add that a trans female student-athlete must complete one calendar year of testosterone suppression treatment in order to compete on the women's team, whereas a trans male student-athlete who received a medical exception for treatment with testosterone may compete on the men's team but is no longer eligible to compete on the women's team.
