[Ed. – The battle goes on.]
Tennessee became the third state to require student athletes to compete based on their biological sex.
The state’s Republican Governor Bill Lee signed the legislation into law on Friday, joining Mississippi and Arkansas in protecting girl’s sports.
“I signed the bill to preserve women’s athletics and ensure fair competition,” Gov. Lee posted on Twitter. “This legislation responds to damaging federal policies that stand in opposition to the years of progress made under Title IX and I commend members of the General Assembly for their bipartisan work.”
Naturally, the bill sparked outrage from the left who claim that the law is discriminatory. The ACLU has already threatened lawsuits if the law is enforced.
“Governor Lee’s rush to discriminate against transgender children is appalling. Transgender people have the right to participate in sports consistent with who they are, just like everyone else.
