Idaho Creates New Bill To Stop Transwomen From Dominating Female Sports
Transwomen have been giving females a hard time when it comes to School-related sports. There have been many accounts of male students who have infiltrated female sports and taken opportunities away from women. From track and field to weightlifting, these transwomen have been hurting hard training females. So Idaho decided to get ahead of it and is preventing the unfair practices from starting in their state with a new bill.
"An Idaho bill banning transgender women from competing in women’s sports despite warnings that such a law is unconstitutional headed back to the House on Monday after being amended in the Senate.
The Senate voted 24-11 to approve the measure that would apply to all sports teams sponsored by public schools, colleges and universities. A girls' or women's team would not be open to transgender students who identify as female.
Backers say the law is needed because transgender female athletes have physical advantages. They say that allowing transgender women to compete can limit athletic, economic and self-growth opportunities provided through sports made possible by Title IX."
"Supporters of the law say it will protect females from unfair competition by biological males.
"It started to level the playing field. But now we are in a new crisis," said Republican Sen. Mary Souza according to the Associated Press.
"Girls who have been struggling and training and competing in their sport are suddenly confronted by biological males," she explained."
"Republican Sen. Jim Rice agreed with Souza that males are generally better athletes than females. He said allowing transgender high school students to compete in girls’ sports could limit the competitive experiences of others.
“I think that it is important to protect those opportunities for my granddaughters,” Rice said.
Democratic Sen. Maryanne Jordan said there was no need for the law because there were no instances of transgender girls or women competing in Idaho sports. She also said the Idaho High School Activities Association has a policy in place already, as does the NCAA. Both include a requirement for medically prescribed hormone treatment before participating on a girls’ team."

It really is not fair to females.
“Men naturally have a larger bone structure, higher bone density, stronger connective tissue and higher muscle density than women,” the Raw Powerlifting board wrote. “These traits, even with reduced levels of testosterone do not go away. While MTF may be weaker and less muscle than they once were, the biological benefits given to them at birth still remain over that of a female.”
But for some reason schools overlook this hurting their female student's chances at scholarships and marginalizing them. So good on Idaho getting ahead of this damaging trend and protecting females from this unfair practice.
