On June 1, Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis became the latest governor to protect the rights of girls and women competing in athletics, by signing a bill into law — the “Fairness in Women’s Sports Act” — which prohibits biological men from competing against female athletes.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Tuesday signed a bill barring biological males who identify as females from participating in female sporting events sponsored by public institutions and vowed not to back down to pressure from the NCAA amid threats to pull tournaments from states that enact such legislation.
Remaining on the cutting edge of conservatism, public policy, and Title IX protections, Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis ensures girls and women in Florida sports will not have to compete with transgender females who were biologically born male, even in the face of lawsuits or cancel culture calls.
