The topic of biological males in female sports is being pushed hard by many on the left. But one state is taking matters into its own hands to determine which team its students will play on.
Oklahoma public schools require student-athletes to sign a “biological sex affidavit” to determine eligibility.
Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt was tired of watching females get their sports taken over by the opposite gender with a biological advantage.
Stitt signed the “Save Women’s Sports Act,” which makes students play on the sports team of their biological sex for kindergarten through college-age students.
“When it comes to sports and athletics, girls should compete against girls. Boys should compete against boys,” Stitt said. “And let’s be very clear — that’s all this bill says.”
Many Democrat politicians have been stunting to allow males to outcompete females in sports. Unfortunately, this has resulted in some females losing out on scholarships and opportunities in the sports world.
The executive director at the abortion and reproductive rights organization lashed out and attacked the act on her social media.
“Do you understand what is happening? This has nothing to do with encouraging girls to be athletes,” abortion director Erin Matson said. “This is totalitarianism. It is the white nationalist agenda. The anti-LGBTQ agenda. The anti-abortion agenda. It is all the same agenda.”

Woodall Public Schools’ superintendent Ginger Knight confirmed that the state law makes students who want to play sports sign a form.
Oklahoma is the first state to enact the law, and many supporters of women’s sports hope there are more states to follow.
“We’re going to have to do this — we’re going to abide by the law,” Pat Dodson, superintendent of Grove Public Schools, told KOAM News Now. “But I do think it’s just a little bit too much, and it’s an overreach on behalf of our legislators.”
Many liberals are unhappy with the state’s decisions and have called it discrimination against transgenders.
Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona points out how unfair it is for females to compete with males and how girls deserve sports opportunities too. He pointed out that high school girls competing in sports have 1.3 million fewer opportunities than boys.
Elite athletes like @LedeckyDaily must start speaking out against males competing in female sports before it is too late. Swimming, rugby, powerlifting, and cycling have all made moves to #SaveWomensSports We need to keep encouraging all sports to keep it real. #SexNotGender https://t.co/2ZcGWrrlg2

As some Republican legislatures are stepping up in Oklahoma to protect female sports, many GOP voters hope this trend continues.
