Bill aims to ban transgender athletes

West Dakota Fox by Jacob Notermann on January 12, 2021

BISMARCK, N.D. (KFYR) - The state legislature introduced a bill that would ban transgender students from participating in the high school sports for their gender identity.

House Bill 1298 says any entity that receives public funding from the state is not allowed to let anyone participate on an athletic team that’s exclusively for males or females. Rather, participants can only play on the teams that match the gender on a person’s original birth certificate at the time of birth.

We take one step forward and they try to pull us back.

Maybe it's time to sit down and have a rational discussion about why "they" try to pull us back, whoever you imagine "they" to be. It isn't phobia or fear or whatever it is one might be thinking, there are real rational arguments and crickets emanating from the trans community. The only thing that the trans community is really really good at is alienating larger and larger swaths of society at large. You might gain a foot somewhere but there is a foot or more lost somewhere else.
