About 30 U.S. states already have or are discussing bills prohibiting transgender athletes from participating in women’s sports teams and competitions. The intention would be to avoid privileges and maintain fairer competitions. The information comes from the American portal CBNNews.
The governors of Idaho, Alabama, Arkansas, Tennessee, Mississippi and West Virginia have already signed bills that bar transgender students from participating in women’s sports teams in schools public. South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem issued a similar executive order. And in Florida, the state Senate passed similar legislation last week.
The measures, while supported by a significant portion of the American population, are in line with what US President Joe Biden has been advocating since the start of his term. On several occasions, the Democrat has shown his support for the agenda of American LGBT activists.
