Mississippi Governor Tate Reeves has indicated that he will sign the Mississippi Fairness Act into law.
This is a bill — passed through the Mississippi House of Representatives on Wednesday, March, 3 by a vote of 81-28 and passed through the Mississippi Senate a month ago by a vote of 34-9 — which would keep young girls from having to compete with transgender women, who are biological males, in both athletic competitions and in races for athletic scholarships.
Mississippi Bucks the Transgender Agenda
This latest move on the part of the Magnolia State is only the most recent attempt it’s made to resist the agenda and the cultural and political hegemony of the left-wing elite that currently dominates America.
Of course, Governor Reeves, along with Governor Greg Abbott of Texas, has recently announced that he would abolish all mask mandates in his state and work to completely lift all COVID lockdown restrictions. Given the horrendous economic damage that these lockdowns have caused all over the country and the complete lack of evidence that they stopped the spread of COVID, this decision is welcome but long overdue.
Reeves’ decision to sign the Mississippi Fairness Act into law builds on this momentum. Post-pubescent boys who have gender identity issues and who have decided to identify as women have enormous biological advantages over the girls in their age group when it comes to athletic performance. Even between a man and a woman who weigh the same, the man, on average, has far more of his body mass made up of muscle.
Recognizing that allowing biological boys to compete with girls for athletic awards and scholarships would lead to the girls being totally left behind and excluded, Reeves said on Twitter, “I will sign our bill to protect young girls from being forced to compete with biological males for athletic opportunities. It’s crazy we have to address it, but the Biden E.O. forced the issue. Adults? That’s on them. But the push for kids to adopt transgenderism is just wrong.”
