It’s a good day for governors. In Montana, Gov. Greg Gianforte signed a bill into law that protects female athletes, and their potential achievement and scholarships, from being stolen from them by “transgender” biological males with genetic advantages.
The details are of interest but the principle is what matters. The “newspeak” jerks on the left who for some reason want to disadvantage and harm women cannot change the science. But when they aren’t claiming “science” as their god in order to float their Armageddon beliefs about climate or that you should wear a mask outside even if you’re vaccinated, they are busy claiming that science is racist and misogynist and anti-“trans.”
Anyway here’s the details of this stand against that trash.
The bill’s sponsor, Republican Rep. John Fuller of Whitefish, has said that “allowing males to compete as women in female sports will result in women once again being shouldered aside to stand below the awards podium and forced to cheer the accomplishments of men.”
That’s from the AP, which also said this dumb thing:
But a review by The Associated Press found that in almost every state where such measures were advanced this year, bill sponsors could not cite a single instance in their own state or region where the participation of transgender athletes in sports has caused problems.
Meanwhile, in Oklahoma, Gov. Kevin Stitt signed a bill today totally banning critical race theory in public schools and universities.
“Now more than ever, we need policies that bring us closer together – not rip us apart,” the Republican governor said Friday. “I firmly believe that not one cent of taxpayer money should be used to define and divide young Oklahomans by their race or sex.”
Bill 1775 passed through the state’s legislature with overwhelming support and prohibits the teaching that “one race or sex is inherently superior to another,” and that “an individual, by virtue of his or her race or sex, is inherently racist, sexist or oppressive.”
Like I said, good day for governors.
