A transgender jurist who claimed a conservative bill to keep trans athletes out of women’s sports would prevent them from being “authentic”, winning themselves with a vote that overtook a veto He is going.
Democratic Governor Laura Kelly lifted a proposed ban on transgender athletes in girls and women’s sports in Kansas, but Conservative Republicans wanted to reverse the move and gain momentum through the success of similar initiatives in other states.

The state Senate eventually voted 26–14 in favor of blocking the vote, meaning supporters were reduced to one vote by the two-thirds majority needed to launch a vote in the House.

“The fact that we have people who are ready to step in and say, ‘No, we’re not going to do any discrimination in Kansas, we’re not going to let it go, we’re going to fulfill the governor’s veto My heart is going very much “ Responded to Stephanie Byers, a Wichita Democrat who addressed the hearing.
“We live in a country [where] We are seeing that our society is evolving, we are moving forward… and it is going to continue because, as a country, we are becoming more loving and accepting.
He said, ‘We will not discriminate here. It’s going to be tough fighting, but we’re always going to do it. “
Today I vetoed the divisive transgender sports bill so that we can welcome our state to all the concussions and keep our state open for business. See my full statement below: pic.twitter.com/fO6EkBXN0n

Several states, including Alabama, Mississippi and Tennessee, have enacted sanctions laws, while a legislature with Republican supermajorities also failed to override a similar governor’s veto in North Dakota last month.
“Nobody can blame [Jenner] Anti-trans or interested in causing suicide, or whatever accusations I have for it, “ Republican Senate President Ty Masterson told reporters before the Razor-Thin vote, while one of his colleagues, Senator Renee Erickson, said Kelly showed him “True, far-fetched bastard.”
“I think if we make about what it really is – protecting those opportunities for girls – they are Kansas values. At the end of the day, it will hurt the governor politically.”
In more perspective, Carsten Brasach defeated both Williams sisters in a single afternoon, even though she was somewhere in the 200s, where the Williams sisters ranked quite high. Compare the physical creations between Serena and Brash, so Serena is more of a wholesaler.

I must admit that I have not read the bill, but I believe that no one is excluded from the competition. But if you have an X & Y chromosome, then you should cater against humans who have the X & Y chromosome.

There were reportedly tears of relief after the vote. “After a long reputation of being anti-LGBT, this state is making progress on rights for LGBT people and it is progressing on the rights of transgender people,” Tom Witt, rights group echoing Kansas as executive director, details of Kelly’s proposed ban “Retrograde”.
Senator David Healey, a Democrat, who openly acknowledged how disappointed he was to make a decision when he spoke, cast a decisive vote.
“This is probably one of the most difficult votes I’ve had to take because the issues are very well on both sides.” he said.
Pretty sure that not giving women the best chance of winning in their games goes directly against Title 9… what am I missing?

About the rights of girls who are born to compete in a birth sport. Congenital men (ie those without uterus) have a major physical benefit. Be fair to women.

The key factor may be a concern that leading sports bodies may have shaken Kansas as the host venue for the tournament.
In his impenetrable testimony, Byers said: “My Native American ancestors kept alive the bounties that were placed on them.
“Our ways of marriage were forbidden, our culture forbidden – all in an attempt to erase us systematically because we were isolated from mainstream America.
Weren’t they always involved? No one suggested that they could not participate. How would the girls feel when they did not get any chance to be competitive.

“In Kansas, since 2016, four bills have been passed, which will put a reward on the heads of trans schoolchildren, other bills that make fun of our marriages and, more recently, a bill to make it a life-saving drug Will make hooliganism. ” To move youth.
“This bill would prevent trans girls from verifying their identities through sports – thereby wiping them out. Trans children succeed when their identities are confirmed but it’s not always an easy path.
“The emotional exhaustion of keeping what you have hidden, in a world that is often left out of your performance, does not welcome you, takes its toll.
The Kansas Senate today upheld the governor’s veto on SB 55 (the anti-transgender sports bill). When you see repeated attempts by the real promoters of these bills – not about sports, bathrooms, or marriages. It is about legislative discrimination. Remember it in 2022

“Affirmation helps relieve the anxiety and depression that so far often leads to suicide. When my trans students will be heard using their names and their pronouns, they will ray.
“It is a tremendous feeling not to be invisible, but to see who you really are.
“Preventing students from playing the game gives another proof as to their authentic self, despite which you know yourself that you are just undesirable.”
