Louisiana anti transgender in sports bill fails in House 5-6
Break out the record books

“Lawmakers on a Louisiana House committee Tuesday narrowly refused to advance a proposal to prohibit transgender athletes from competing on girls’ sports teams in schools.

By a one-vote margin, the House Education Committee rejected the bill by Houma Republican Rep. Beryl Amedee. Five lawmakers on the panel voted for the measure, while six voted against it. Two Republicans joined Democrats on the committee in opposing the proposal.

Why do people want boys to dominate girls sports?

This was supposed to protect our girls from boys playing on their teams?

If so, lights out Louisiana. You elected a leftist shitbag twice for governor. Louisiana is blue again

Ya know, Id normally be mad at this. But if these dumb fricks are voting on it like this let males dominate women's sports. Let's just make this entire thing so unbelievably outrageous.

I can't figure why people think this is an issue for the government.

re: Louisiana anti transgender in sports bill fails in House 5-6
Wouldn’t the fair thing to do is make all sports gender neutral?

Only one basketball team for example.

Only one swim team.

If the left wants true equality then the girls need to compete with the boys for positions on the only team available.

Why don’t progstains advocate for that?

Apparently republican women killed this bill, a bill to help protect their daughters from competing against biological males.

re: Louisiana anti transgender in sports bill fails in House 5-6
“That vote isn’t certain to end the debate for the legislative session, however. A similar proposal by Sen. Beth Mizell, the Senate’s second-ranking Republican, awaits debate on the Senate floor after winning the backing of that chamber’s education committee.

Supporters of the proposals said they are trying to protect female athletes from unfair competition. Opponents call the measures discriminatory. Gov. John Bel Edwards, a Democrat, opposes the bill and other measures targeting transgender youth.”

Louisiana is the worst state in the country. There's no denying it. Mostly Red but likes to torture itself with blue policies and politics.
