HomeNews WireThis State is Finally Putting an End to Transgender Athletes Dominating Women's Sports Editor January 24, 2020 Over the last couple of years, we've been seeing a surge of transgender athletes, mostly men pretending to be women, entering women's sports and completely dominating the field. This is definitely unfair to the girls/women who have worked they butts off to be the best that they can be at a sport and then to be outdone by some men who are by nature physically stronger and faster. I'll acknowledge that there may be some occasional exceptions to this rule, but on its face, men are stronger, faster, and naturally built to be more physical. Finally, one state is stepping up and taking action to prevent this from continuing, at least in their state. That state is Georgia and hopefully, this will get the ball rolling for others states to do likewise. A recently-elected Republican lawmaker has filed legislation that would ban teams from using public facilities if transgender children are competing in single-gender sporting events that don’t align with their gender identified at birth. State Rep. Philip Singleton, a Sharpsburg Republican who was elected in an October special election, said he filed the bill because he didn’t want anyone to have an “unfair advantage.” “The Student Athlete Protection Act is designed to ensure that biological boys will only compete in sports against other biological boys and vice-versa for girls,” Singleton told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “The intent of my bill is to make sure every student has the opportunity to compete fairly.” For now, this bill would only apply to individual sports like track and swimming and team sports such as football, basketball, or baseball. Georgia joins a list of states moving to ban transgender students from competing in categories outside their birth gender. This is exactly what needs to be done. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out how this is wrong in so many ways.
