The state of Tennessee has righteously refused to accept the twisted idea of allowing “transgender women” (men who have cut off their genitalia) in women sports. The governor, Bill Lee, rightfully declared: “transgenders participating in women’s sports will destroy women’s sports”. As we read in the AP:
Republican Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee said Wednesday that transgender girls should be banned from playing on middle and high school sports teams or they will “destroy women’s sports.”
“I do believe that transgenders participating in women’s sports will destroy women’s sports,” Lee, who is up for reelection next year, told reporters. “It will ruin the opportunity for girls to earn scholarships. It will put a glass ceiling back over women that hasn’t been there in some time. I think it’s bad for women and for women’s sports.”
Lee’s comments come as Tennessee Republicans began advancing a proposal this week requiring student athletes to prove that the student’s sex matches the student’s “original” birth certificate in order to participate in public school sports. If a birth certificate is unavailable, then the parents must provide another form of evidence “indicating the student’s sex at the time of birth.”
Lee stopped short of promising to sign the legislation should it come to his desk, but instead reiterated that he believe transgender athletes would put “a glass ceiling back over women that hasn’t been there in some time.”
Tennessee is one of a dozen states with lawmakers backing restrictions on athletics or gender-confirming health care for trans minors this year.
