Mississippi Governor announces he has signed a bill “to ensure young girls are not forced to compete against biological males”

Mississippi Governor Tate Reeves has  signed a bill that will ban transgender athletes from women’s sports.

The bill is now slated to become law on July 1st.

Reeves tweeted “I never imagined dealing with this, but POTUS left us no choice. One of his first acts was to sign an EO encouraging transgenderism in children. So today, I proudly signed the Mississippi Fairness Act to ensure young girls are not forced to compete against biological males.”

Human Rights Campaign President Alphonso David spoke out against Reeves action.

David said  “while transgender athletes have been competing at every level for years without incident, Governor Reeves is signing this bill while Mississippians continue to suffer and real issues go unaddressed.”

“Bullying transgender kids is no way to govern the state out of the crises they face … Transgender kids deserve better and so does Mississippi,” he added.
