A similar bill passed in Idaho forced girls to undergo DNA tests and "genital exams" if their gender was questioned.

Republican Senator Kelly Loeffler of Georgia introduced a bill that would prohibit transgender girls from competing in school sports with their gender, according to LGBTQ Nation.

  • Loeffler said her Protection of Women and Girls in Sports Act “protects [cisgender] women and girls.”
  • LGBTQ Nation reported that the bill “would explicitly state that allowing transgender girls and women to compete with their gender in school sports violates Title IX’s ban on discrimination on the basis of sex in schools.”
  • This is the same legal argument the Trump administration is currently using to threaten schools’ federal funding, the report noted.
  • Loeffler’s bill says “sex shall be recognized based solely on a person’s reproductive biology and genetics at birth” in girls’ and women’s sports. The legislation conspicuously makes no mention of transgender boys competing in boys’ and men’s sports.
  • LGBTQ Nation noted that a similar measure that passed in Idaho earlier this year “was criticized because it allowed anyone to challenge a student athlete’s gender, which would force the girl or woman to undergo DNA tests and ‘genital exams.’”

While Loeffler’s bill does not explain exactly how schools will determine an athlete’s gender, it defines eligibility for sports in terms of reproductive organs and chromosomes suggests that it may lead to similar examinations as the Idaho bill.

With the bill’s wording vague and federal funding on the line, schools could opt to require genital exams for all female athletes to prove they aren’t transgender.

  • The report said it remains unclear whether the bill could pass at this point in the year, also noting that "Similar legislation was introduced in the House this past January by Rep. Greg Steube (R-FL)."

Loeffler’s bill is co-sponsored in the Senate by Senators Mike Lee (R-UT), Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), James Lankford (R-OK) and Tom Cotton (R-AR) and her press release announcing the bill quoted several far-right organizations and hate groups, including the Concerned Women for America and the designated hate group Family Research Council.

So these creeps all are jumping on the Q-nonsense stories of pedophile rings etc, and yet this woman wants to look at teenager girls' private parts to prove they are really a GIRL???? Yeah cuz you know in high school and college, .7% identify as transgender. IDENTIFY, that does not mean they have actually started any transitioning. And of those how many are in college, and from there participating in sports???? About 250k tops . So multiply by .7% = 1,750. So wanting to make a senate bill about 1,750 people, and with COVID, and most sports not active currently, pretty much knocks this down to a few dozen MAYBE! AND on top of that most schools still don't permit it.

We know what this is about .. per the NCAA guidelines, the common fear is "that men might be tempted to pretend to be transgender in order to compete in competition with women". This all harks back to they will HIDE in the locker room and then RAPE the women!

I am more likely to be struck by lightning once a month than this situation happening!
