Republicans in five states are filing bills that would prevent biological males from competing in girls’ sports.
Biological males such as Hannah Mouncey have made waves by dominating female sports with a massive physical advantage.
Breitbart reports Republican legislators in five states are drafting legislation to prevent men and women in high schools from participating in sports based on gender identity rather than their biological sex.
Lawmakers specifically said they want to protect women from facing unfair competition from men who claim to be transgender women.
The Wall Street Journal reported on the development:
The bills—introduced or prefiled in New Hampshire, Washington, Georgia, Tennessee and Missouri—reflect growing attention around the issue of whether transgender-rights protections are leading to unfair competition in women’s sports.
Policies regulating the eligibility of transgender high-school athletes are usually set by school associations and vary. In about a third of states, transgender students can freely compete on teams of the gender they identify with, according to transathlete.com, which tracks athletics policies nationwide.
Like the National Collegiate Athletic Association, some high-school associations allow transgender females to participate on girls’ teams if they meet certain conditions, such as completing a period of testosterone-suppression treatment or gender-reassignment surgery.
