While we currently have to put up with the vomit-inducing reality that biological men like University of Pennsylvania swimmer Lia Thomas are competing in women’s sports at the national level, high school and college athletes in Oklahoma won’t have to worry about that anymore.
Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt (R) signed a bill into law on Wednesday – appropriately dubbed the “Save Women’s Sports Act” – that will prevent biological males who transition to female from competing in women’s sports. It is immediately effective.
Flanked by several young female athletes including his 14-year-old daughter Piper, Stitt passed the legislation in a matter of what he called “common sense,” something a lot of Americans seem to lack when forming opinions on the transgender ideology.
“This bill, the Save Women’s Sports Act, to us in Oklahoma is just common sense,” Stitt said. “When it comes to sports and athletics, girls should compete against girls. The boys should be able to compete with the girls. And let’s be very clear: That’s all this bill says.”
The bill didn’t receive unanimous approval. Tamya Cox-Touré, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Oklahoma Executive Director, roasted the bill as an act of discrimination against transgender children (which of course, it isn’t).
“Transgender people belong everywhere, but with the swipe of a pen and a public display, Governor Stitt has sent a clear message to Oklahoma’s vulnerable transgender youth that they are not welcome or accepted in our State,” Cox-Touré said. “SB2 is just one of many bills we have seen attacking our Two Spirit, transgender, and nonbinary communities this session, while overlooking the real issues with gender equality in sports when it comes to funding, resources, pay equity, and more.”
Research done by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) (which is obviously the most trustworthy medical information source out there – wink) also say that transgender children feel isolated in academic environments, which the information suggests leads to mental health problems. This bill appears to be another way that a governor can discriminate against transgenders.
However, this is the same inclusion and victim mentality language that proponents of the transgender ideology have used to allow them to ruin women’s sports in the first place. Transgenders claim that they are seeking acceptance as equal citizens of society. When boundaries are established for their interaction with men and women they assert that any person with common sense is a transphobic bigot.
But, that simply isn’t true.
There is still something in transgender ideologies that Americans are not aware of. These beliefs can be harmful to society’s fabric. Women who change from men to women often endanger their fellow competitors in the competition. This prevents them from having a chance at success in their chosen sports. Some are prepared to fight it (like NCAA Swimming Community), while some will let it destroy our nation.
The future looks bright in Oklahoma for women’s sports. It is hoped that it will be the same in other parts of America.
