A Texas bill seeking to ban transgender students from competing in school sports is now law.

Gov. Gregg Abbott signed the bill on Monday that prohibits students in public schools from competing in sports that don't align with their gender listed at birth. The bill was passed by the State's Republican-led legislature earlier in October and sent to Abbot's desk for his signature.

The bill passed via a 76-61 margin in the House of Representatives and a 19-12 vote on the Senate. Abbott didn't publicly comment on the law upon signing it.

The bill overrides a previous provision to state law that allowed students to obtain a court order to permit them to compete as the gender with which they identify. Republican state Rep. Valoree Swanson, a vocal advocate of the bill, argued that the new law's intent is to protect girls in sports.

It's good to see at least Texas cares about the girls in sports.

It amazes me how so many on the left are willing to throw girls under the bus, to protect some boys that want to compete against girls.

This is just more evidence of what I was talking about in another thread. The left has no moral compass and no basis on which their morality lies. Therefore, they have problems when their favored groups come into conflict with each other.

At this point, they now have to begin to prioritize which group is more deserving. At this point in time, it seems to be those that suffer from Gender Dysphoria have a higher priority that women. Give it a couple of years and it will change.

Good for Texas. Men have no business competing in women's athletic sports. If someone wants to pretend to be the opposite sex then that is their business,however they have no right what so ever to force everyone else to play along. Its sad that the loony left is so run amok that we have to have common sense laws like this.
