Texas Just Banned Men from Competing on Women’s Sports Teams in Colleges and Universities

Effective in September, men at colleges and universities in Texas won’t be allowed to join women’s sports teams. Governor Greg Abbott recently signed SB 15 bill into law.

If you’re born male but choose to live out your fantasy of being a “woman,” you won’t be able to deprive women of fair competition at the collegiate level in this great state.

“Sports have inspired many women to cast bold visions and dreams of what they want to achieve,” Gov. Abbott said. “The legacy of women’s sports will be safeguarded for generations to come. Women in Texas can be assured that the integrity of their sports will be protected in our state.”

Texas has already banned boys from competing on girls’ sports teams in middle and high schools.

Banning men from women’s sports teams does more than protect fairness in competition. It physically protects the women.

Lawmakers must continue to use their power to protect children, whether their minds and bodies or equal opportunities in sports. Gov. Abbott signed a bill into law earlier this month that outlaws genital mutilation and puberty blockers for minors. The legislature also barred taxpayers’ money from funding these procedures. Medical professionals who break the law could lose their medical licenses.

“Since the NCAA refuses to protect fairness for female athletes, states must ensure women in college have the same equal athletic opportunities that they were afforded in high school,” Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) Senior Counsel Christiana Kiefer said.” We commend Gov. Abbott, Rep. Valoree Swanson, Sen. Mayes Middleton, and the rest of the bill’s supporters in the Texas Legislature for taking this strong stand for Texas’ collegiate female athletes.”

Kiefer recently appeared on Fox News with three ADF clients who filed a lawsuit against a Connecticut athletic association for allowing two boys to compete on the high school girls’ track and field team. Selina Soule, Alanna Smith, and Chelsea Mitchell were devastated after losing competitions to these boys. They also missed qualifying for championships.

    Common rational God-honoring sense… There is so much wickedness ignorance cowardice being ushered into American culture via the Godless demoncRATic fascist door. Sickening. Shameful. Sinister.

  2. Bravo Texas for once again leading the way, just as you did in 1990 when you declared June 19th Texas Emancipation Day a State Holiday.

  3. Good for TX, and shame on my own state, CT, where the Interscholastic Athletic Conference (CIAC) allows biological males to compete against female athletes. A state court then had the nerve to say that the 3 girls were “not harmed” by the unfair competition – even though it cost them many races, championships, and opportunities that were usurped by the boys claiming to be girls. So glad that Alliance Defending Freedom, which is representing the women, isn’t giving up – they’re now appealing to Federal court, where the judges hopefully will be less politically correct and woke.
