Florida Governor Ron DeSantis told Laura Ingraham of Fox News during a town hall event that he’s prepared to sign legislation protecting women’s sports by preventing trans-women (biological males) from competing in female leagues. The legislation does not apply to elementary school age kids or trans-men (biological females) looking to play in male sports.
DeSantis said “We’re going to protect our girls. I have a four-year-old daughter and a one-year-old daughter. They’re both very athletic. We want to have opportunities for our girls. They deserve an even playing field, and that’s what we’re doing.

The Fairness in Women’s Sports Act passed the Florida House 79-37 and the Senate 23-16. Earlier this year Mississippi passed similar legislation, which goes into effect this July.
While many in the trans-activist community oppose legislation preventing trans-women from competing in female sports, former Olympic Athlete and prominent trans-celebrity Caitlyn Jenner (formerly Bruce Jenner) surprisingly agrees with the Florida bill.
Over the weekend Jenner told TMZ “I oppose biological boys who are trans competing in girl’s sports in school.” The former Olympian added “It just isn’t fair, and we have to protect girls sports in our schools.”
Jenner is currently running as a Republican in the recall election of California Governor Gavin Newsom.
