  1. “with biology defined as a student’s gender listed on their birth certificate.”

    They went this route in South Dakota, but it’s possible to have a new “corrected” birth certificate issued.

    “Transgender girls” are boys. Boy/girl isn’t a gender, it’s a sex. A boy is an child/adolescent male, a person with a Y chromosome. That can’t be changed through surgery, medication or fashion. Gender is masculine/feminine and we’ve allowed confused language to play into confusing vulnerable people.

  2. I want to know where all the feminists are that aren’t jumping up and down raising hell that boys are allowed to compete as girls in sports. I don’t care what gender you call yourself or what you want to be but allowing boys to compete as girls is an unfair advantage..just look at the swimmer that was ranked like 500th and is now beating records in women’s swimming…it’s because he is a boy..

  3. Some of the girls who should be protesting transgender males dominating female sports have likely guzzled the liberal, perverted Kool-Aid and think it’s a great example of equality, inclusiveness, and diversity. Those who would protest are likely afraid of our cancel culture and lack of support from school administrators, teachers, and government officials. I can’t wait to see how the LPGA, WNBA, WNSL, and other women’s sport leagues handle it.

    • I know. And teachers are more and more encouraging boys to question their sexuality (what does that have to do with the 3 R’s?). If more boys become transgender, just think of all the female sports teams they can be a part of. Maybe eventually there won’t be any “female” sports programs.

  4. If states do not regulate this, all females on teams infiltrated by males should just quit. It is simply a matter of fairness over political correctness. Preventing a biological male from competing against biological females in arenas where chromosomes matter is NOT singling them out or discriminating.
