UN Controlled Olympic Committee Pushes the Radical LGBTQ Agenda
June 11, 2024
MADISON, Wis., June 11, 2024 /Standard Newswire/ -- The International Olympic Committee (IOC) updated its "Portrayal Guidelines." They address how the media should cover athletes. The 2024 Olympics are in Paris this summer.

They say "biological male" or "biological female" should be avoided as it is "problematic." Also, "a person's sex category is not assigned based on genetics alone and aspects of a person's biology can be altered when they pursue gender-affirming medical care."

They provide guidance on how to write about women that's not sexist. The guide also mentioned gender pay gaps, how the appearances of females are more commented on, and features IOC leaders complaining about gender discrimination.

They say "humankind" should be used rather than "mankind." Also, "partner/spouse" should replace terms like "husband/wife."

Terms that should be avoided: Born male, born female, biologically male, biologically female, genetically male, genetically female, male-to-female (MtF), female-to-male (FtM), identifies as, sex change, and transsexual.

GLAAD, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, helped write the guidelines.

Steve McConkey, President of the worldwide sports ministry 4 WINDS USA, counters the LGBTQ sports movement. "The IOC continues to show their true colors," states McConkey. "They push radical agendas and have allowed the Olympics to be in countries that persecute Christians, plus they work with the United Nations. They were granted observer status by the United Nations to implement the UN's Millennium Development Goals. Individual athletes need to concentrate on their events and Christians need to share Christ despite the Olympic Committee's efforts."
In 2003, McConkey started fighting against the International Olympic Committee's transgender policies. He was the only one who stood against this publicly.

From there, the transgender movement spread to state high schools, the NCAA, NFL, NBA, MLB, and NHL. McConkey has fought this agenda every step of the way.

After years of standing up, World Athletics (track and field) and World Aquatics (swimming), plus other sports, banned transgenders from participating at the international level. Twenty-five states have passed anti-transgender athlete bills.

On October 4, 2023, McConkey spoke at three hearings at the Wisconsin Capitol. Two bills were against transgender athletes on high school and college teams. The third bill was against transgender surgeries and hormone treatments for those under eighteen. The bills passed the Assembly and Senate, but Governor Evers vetoed them.

Steve McConkey is the President of 4 WINDS USA, a worldwide sports ministry, mostly in track and field ( Starting in 1981, he has worked through ten Olympics. From 1982 to 1992, Steve was a USA National Track and Field Club Coach. After 1992, 4 WINDS works with athletes on all teams. Steve graduated with honors from Western Kentucky University (Master of Public Health), Minnesota State University (BS-Community Health), and Webster High School (WI). Ministry headquarters have been in Eugene (Oregon), Dallas-Fort Worth (Texas), Minneapolis-St. Paul (Minnesota), and Madison (Wisconsin). In recent years, Steve has had over 320 worldwide radio, article, and TV interviews.
