Wyoming: “Trans” Students No Longer Allowed to Participate in Women's Competitions

Starting July 1, only biological girls in Wyoming schools will be allowed to compete in girls' athletics in grades 7 through 12, under a new law passed in the state. “Transgender” children will only be able to participate in male or mixed competitions.

The new law requires schools that participate in interscholastic athletic competitions to clearly designate the programs as male, female, or co-ed. These designations will be based on the student's biological sex, even if the student identifies as a different gender. The law defines sex as “the biological and physical condition of being male or female, as determined by an individual's genetics and anatomy at birth.”

When the law comes into effect, biologically male students who identify as girls will not be allowed to participate in female-only sports competitions. Biological boys will only be able to participate in male or mixed sports competitions. Biological girls will not be subject to the same restrictions and will be able to participate in any sports competition.

“A male student shall not participate, and a public school shall not permit a male student to participate, in any athletic activity or team restricted to female students,” the law states.

The bill was passed overwhelmingly by both houses of the heavily Republican-controlled legislature. It passed 51 to 10 in the House of Representatives and 27 to 3 in the Senate.

Although Republican Gov. Mark Gordon allowed the bill to pass, he did not sign it. Despite his opposition, the legislature likely would have had enough votes to override a veto if the governor decided to go against the bill.

In a letter to Secretary of State Chuck Gray, the governor said he believed the bill was “well-intentioned to protect the integrity and fairness of women's sports,” but that it would have been better to deal with it on a case-by-case basis due to the little impact it has on athletics in the state.

“With only four known transgender students competing in school sports out of a total of 91,000 students, this would appear to require individualized considerations, where families, students, teams and others can carefully address specific circumstances rather than such a punitive and condemnatory approach,” Gordon said in the letter.

Wyoming will be the 19th state to limit women's sports competitions to biologically female athletes only.

A Necessary Law

Contrary to what the state governor said, this law is necessary. First to preserve the future which could see more cases being reported. But above all to fight against the “deconstruction” of the sexes undertaken by an ever more powerful and enterprising cancel culture.

The “transgender” offensive orchestrated by this desire for deconstruction, based on a negligible number of cases of “gender dysphoria,” has resulted in both individual and societal upheavals that must be fought at all costs, under penalty of growing disorders.
