Iowa governor signs law banning biological males from female sports

The Republican governor of Iowa has now signed into law a bill that bans biological males from competing in female sports and it goes all the way up through higher education.


DC EXAMINER – Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds signed a bill into law Thursday banning biological males from women’s sports, following the lead of South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem.

According to the signed legislation, “Only female students, based on their sex, may participate in any team, sport, or athletic event designated as being for females, women, or girls.”

“This is a victory for girls’ sports in Iowa. No amount of talent, training or effort can make up for the natural physical advantages males have over females. It’s simply a reality of human biology,” she said in a statement. “Forcing females to compete against males is the opposite of inclusivity and it’s absolutely unfair.”

The law extends to public and private schools, community colleges, and higher education institutions, as well as any colleges that are NCAA- or NAIA-affiliated, and is effective immediately.

Effectively immediately. I love that.
