The Mississippi House has passed a bill already approved by the state’s Senate to ban transgender females from competing in actual biological female sports. This comes as democrats seek to pass a scientifically illiterate Equality Act that would likely defy Mississippi’s new law. Science suggests that Mississippi’s new legislation is excellent for anyone who doesn’t want women to get their skulls caved in by men who think they are women while competing in sports.

Six representatives did not vote, and seven voted “present,” which counts neither for nor against the bill.
The ban would apply to teams at the state’s schools and universities. The bill now heads to the desk of Republican Gov. Tate Reeves, who is expected to sign it.
The Republican-controlled state Senate passed the bill 34-9 on Feb. 11, with five senators not voting and four voting “present.””
This is a big win for science and reality in Mississippi. It is assumed that the Mississippi governor will approve it.
“Mississippi is now one of more than 20 states where lawmakers have proposed restrictions on athletes playing on sports teams that don’t align with their sex assigned at birth or for gender-reassignment health care for minors.”
