(ReclaimingAmerica.net) – BREAKING NOW: To the applause of social conservatives and the dismay of the pro-transgender crowd, Oklahoma just joined the ranks of states that now prohibit male students from competing in girls’ sports.
As National Review is now documenting in “Oklahoma Governor Signs Bill Barring Male Students from Girls’ Sports“:
“Oklahoma governor Kevin Stitt signed legislation that bans transgender athletes from participation in girls’ high school or college sports on Wednesday.
“The Save Women’s Sports Act passed the Oklahoma House by a 79-18 vote last week, and was subsequently approved by the state Senate.
“‘This bill…to us in Oklahoma is just common sense,’ Stitt, a Republican who is running for reelection this year, said at the signing. ‘When it comes to sports and athletics, girls should compete against girls. Boys should compete against boys. And let’s be very clear: That’s all this bill says.'”
As expected, “Opponents of the bill denounced the law as contrary to federal civil rights law.”
Will this state law and several others that are similar end up before the United States Supreme Court? Legal experts tell us that is all but inevitable.
