Rep. Barbara Ehardt (R-Idaho) is sponsoring a bill that would ban transgender biological males from competing in female sports.
“Boys and men will not be able to take the place of girls and women in sports because it’s not fair.”Ehardt told the East Idaho News ”
We cannot physically compete against boys and men. The inherent biological, scientific advantages that boys and men have over girls and women, even if they were to take hormones, even if they were to spend a couple of years on estrogen, that’s not going to replace the inherent biological advantages that boys and men have.”
Some progressives, including Jennifer Frizzell, policy director for the New Hampshire Women’s Foundation oppose Ehadt’s bill.
Frizzell stated “Values of inclusion and diversity and developing concepts of teamwork and understanding are the overriding goals. I feel there are some myths that might be created that people change their gender identity just to change sports teams.”
Biological males such as Hannah Mouncey have made waves by dominating female sports with an obvious, massive physical advantage.
October of last year, Male born transgender cyclist Rachel McKinnon set a new world record in the women’s 200m sprint.
McKinnon defended her ability to participate in the women’s category in an interview last October.
Popular podcast host Joe Rogan explained his stance in a 2019 podcast that women born as men should not be able to compete in the women’s category.
