19th State Takes Stand Against Transgenders
Men should not be participating in women’s sports. Period. Everyone knows that biological men, in general, have an advantage over women. Men are generally stronger, faster, and more powerful overall. It’s not a coincidence that we see them shattering records when they compete in women’s sports.
Thankfully, Wyoming has become the 19th state to ban men from competing in women’s sports, with Governor Mark Gordon allowing the bill to pass without signing it. The new law, which will take effect on July 1st, restricts the ability of seventh- to twelfth-grade transgender girls to participate on female sports teams.
The bill was passed by both chambers of the Wyoming Legislature and was met with mixed reactions from both sides of the aisle. Supporters of the bill argue that it is necessary to ensure fairness in women’s sports and prevent male athletes from dominating female competitions. Opponents claim that it is discriminatory against transgender students and could lead to further marginalization of an already vulnerable population. But they’re crazy, so who cares about their opinions?
The law states that student athletes must compete according to their gender assigned at birth or provide a medical certificate confirming their gender identity if they wish to compete in a different category. It also requires schools to provide separate locker rooms for male and female athletes, as well as separate showers and bathrooms for each gender.
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has spoken out against this law, stating that it “violates Title IX” and “will harm transgender youth who just want to play sports with their peers”. They have also argued that this law could lead to further discrimination against transgender students in other areas such as education and healthcare.
Despite these concerns, supporters of the bill remain adamant that it is necessary for ensuring fairness in women’s sports. They argue that allowing biological males into female competitions would give them an unfair advantage due to their physical strength, size, and speed. This could potentially lead to female athletes being denied opportunities or even losing scholarships due to being outperformed by male competitors.
