Mississippi Passes Bill Banning Biological Males from Women’s Sports

Mississippi has passed a bill banning biologically born males from women’s sports.

In a 81-28 vote, the Mississippi Fairness Act was passed in the state House on Wednesday.

Per the Fairness act:

Interscholastic or intramural athletic teams or sports that are sponsored by a public primary or secondary school or any school that is a member of the Mississippi High School Activities Association or public institution of higher education or any higher education institution that is a member of the NCAA, NAIA or NJCCA shall be expressly designated as one of the following based on biological sex: (a) “Males,” “men” or “boys”; (b) “Females,” “women” or “girls”; or (c) “Coed” or “mixed.” Athletic teams or sports designated for “females,” “women” or “girls” shall not be open to students of the male sex.

If disputed, a student may establish his or her sex by presenting a signed physician’s statement which shall indicate the student’s sex based solely upon: (a) The student’s internal and external reproductive anatomy; (b) The student’s normal endogenously produced levels of testosterone; and (c) An analysis of the student’s genetic makeup.

Republicans State Senator Angela Hill said “If we do not move to protect female sports from biological males who have an unfair physiological advantage, we will eventually no longer have female sports.”
