The Mississippi legislature has passed a bill which will only allow transgender athletes to compete against athletes who have the equal birth gender. So boys who claim they are girls will only be allowed to compete against biological males.
Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves (R) signed a bill that restricts transgender athletes to only competing in sports that correspond to their birth gender. Mississippi’s SB 2536 will go into effect on July 1, the Associated Press reported.
The Magnolia State becomes the second state to ban transgender athletes from competing against natural-born girls after Iowa passed its law late last year. But more than 20 states are in the process of considering laws that would enact similar restrictions such as those in Iowa and Mississippi.
The gov. added that the bill aims to “protect young girls from being forced to compete with biological males for athletic opportunities.”
The governor is absolutely correct. This bill will level the playing field for female athletes in high schools and colleges across the state. It’s nice to see some states not cowering to the leftist woke mobs.
