Governor Abbott Signs Bill Banning Trans Girls From Female Sports

Real women appreciate this

Texas Governor Abbott signed a bill into law on Monday banning transgender girls from competing in female sports at public schools. Several other states across the country have already signed similar laws. The law is set to go into effect on January 18, 2022.

Those who support the bill say that the purpose is to create fairness in school sports due to the inherent physical advantage that transgender women have when playing on female teams. Equal rights advocates say it is discrimination and hate-driven claiming that transgender women have no advantage despite the fact they were born as a male.

Several other states have passed similar laws this year. A Republican-led national campaign began in Idaho in March 2020 when the state banned any athlete who was assigned a male gender at birth from competing in sports against individuals assigned a female gender at birth. The rule applied to public schools and colleges in the state. A federal court has blocked the Idaho ruling pending the outcome of a legal case against the rule.

Other states who have enacted similar laws include Florida, Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi, Montana, Tennessee, and West Virginia. South Dakota enacted an executive order. So far this year, 35 bills to exclude transgender athletes from competing in female sports have been introduced in 31 states. Some of the rulings are being appealed.

A trans girl is a boy pretending to be a girl. No exceptions.

If Transgender girls want to compete in Woman’s sports, Five minutes before the event, they should have heir Johnson (private), cut OFF. Maybe they will fit in better.

Cutting off your junk does not change your gender It just makes you a male with no junk.

A born woman/female can just refuse to participate in any sport where a transgender male is participating. Is there anything in the rules that “forces” a born woman/female having to participate?

I think all girls should refuse. No girls should be forced to compete against boys in girls sports. Why have girls sports if boys are allowed to compete?

Why do we even have to make laws banning them? It’s a given that they shouldn’t be allowed to play with women in sports any more then they should be allowed in OUR shower rooms or bathroom!!!!! Give an inch and they take a mile. I knew this would only get worse when states were forced to allow them to legally marry. Now they want it all.
