The media whined yesterday that he signed the bill on the first day of Pride Month.
As if there’s some “moratorium” on passing social legislation during Pride Month.
As a recently gender-confirmed Super-Straight man, I say: Pride Month is my month too.
Florida’s Republican governor signed a bill Tuesday barring transgender females from playing on public school teams intended for student athletes born as girls, plunging the state into the national culture war over transgender rights.
See, he plunged the state into the culture war. It’s not that woke schools and lunatic transgender activists have plunged the country into this culture war for five years.
No, it’s DeSantis doing the plunging.
OUT: Republicans pounce
IN: Republicans plunge
“In Florida, girls are going to play girls sports and boys are going to play boys sports,” Gov. Ron DeSantis said as he signed the bill into law at a Christian academy in Jacksonville. “We’re going to make sure that that’s the reality.”The new law, sure to be challenged as unconstitutional, inflames an already contentious discussion unfolding nationally as Republican-controlled states move to limit the rights of LGBTQ people.
And… protect the rights of girls.
You forgot to mention that, eh?
It also could impose severe financial consequences on Florida.
Ah, there we go, the real power in this country: The Corporate Shadow Government.
The NCAA, which oversees college athletics, has threatened to relocate key games from states that discriminate against certain athletes. When the Florida Legislature was considering the measure in April, the NCAA said it would commit championship games to “locations where hosts can commit to providing an environment that is safe, healthy and free of discrimination.”
The whole point of girls sports is to give them a special all-girls league because they cannot compete physically with boys.
If we’re now letting biological boys into girls sports, what is the point of girls sports at all? Just make one all-sex league and let girls try to make the team.
Spoiler alert: They won’t. Apart from a very few extraordinary girls, all sports, including gymnastics and figure skating, will be dominated completely by boys.
But, but, but: Republicans plunge.
Here’s one “journalist,” complaining about DeSantis online:
@jayobtv – Jun 1 One key point about this soon-to-be law that @CarlosGSmith pointed out: it’s *retroactive.*Meaning, trans girls and women currently on sports teams will have to be kicked off this upcoming school year
That’s not really “retroactive” — they’re still biological boys.
You mean there’s no grandfather clause permitting biological boys to remain in girls sports.
But I understand your complete incompetence with basic words: You’re just a professional writer, after all.
Jay O’Brien @jayobtvThe NCAA threatened to cancel events in states that passed laws like this. The organization said it had an eye on Florida.
DeSantis name-checked the NCAA in his remarks today.
Worth noting: Today is the first day of Pride Month.
Well, f*** the NCAA, f*** your “Pride” month, and f*** you.
Below, the Florida governor and future president tells Tucker Carlson that when he was warned the NCAA and other corporations would economically blackmail Florida if they passed this bill, DeathSantis then said, “Oh, we have to do this now.”
I hope he WAITED a week to sign this on the first day of “Pride” month, as if to say shove your “pride” of your sick mental illness up your ass (if there’s room). Allowing biological boys to compete against girls in sports is ridiculous; the outcome is predictable. A girl that was first in her state finished third in a finals race… behind two boys.
But, I guess, to hell with her. For now, the mentally ill transgenders, who either don’t know what they are or change genders to draw attention to themselves. The left wants to skew the rules to favor the deranged because they are the loudest. Doing what is right is never a part of their calculus. Why is is “fair” to favor someone who intentionally brought controversy upon themselves and screw over those working hard to accomplish things in their field?
I wonder, will these science experiments be allowed to compete against actual women in the Olympics? Athletes used to be kicked out for cheating with steroids and hormones; will the Olympics become woke and destroy what records ever meant in the field of sports?
DeSantis does it again; he shows LEADERSHIP in the face of tyranny. Perhaps this is the first shot in the revolution against degenerates.
It is impossible for.a.person to change “gender”. Gender is a property of LANGUAGE – not living things. Living things have sex (okay some creatures are hermaphroditic). In humans sex is determined entirely by 2 chromosomes. The fact that the mechanism of conception sometimes (actually very rarely) goes awry does not negate the fact that there are only 2 SEXES. Words have genders. Living things – including people – have sexes and the maximum number is TWO!!!
Does the Florida bill also ban those born female from competing against boys?
My guess is that such legislation will be offered when that particular issue becomes a problem. Straw man argue much, Greggie?
I bet these girls wished there had been a law against having to face biological males!
