(CNS News) – The Mississippi House voted (81-28) on March 3 to ban transgender “females” (biological males) from competing in real women’s sports in the state’s public schools and universities.
The legislation, the Mississippi Fairness Act, was passed by the state Senate in February and now goes to Gov. Tate Reeves (R), who has said he will sign the bill into law.
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. https://t.co/sncpaPlTbZ

“I will sign our bill to protect young girls from being forced to compete with biological males for athletic opportunities,” tweeted Gov. Reeves on Mar. 4.
“It’s crazy we have to address it, but the Biden E.O. forced the issue,” said Reeves. “Adults? That’s on them. But the push for kids to adopt transgenderism is just wrong.”
A summary of the legislation states that it will require any public school, public institution of higher learning or institution of higher learning that is a member of the NCAA, NAIA, MHSAA or NJCCA to designate its athletic teams or sports according to biological sex” and to “provide protection for any school or institution of higher education that maintains separate athletic teams or sports for students of the female sex.”

Explaining the science behind the body composition or males and females, the legislation states, among other things,
“There are ‘[i]nherent differences’ between men and women,’ and that these differences ‘remain cause for celebration, but not for denigration of the members of either sex or for artificial constraints on an individual’s opportunity.’ United States v. Virginia, 518 U.S. 515, 533 (1996).
(b) These ‘inherent differences’ range from chromosomal and hormonal differences to physiological differences.
(c) Men generally have denser, stronger bones, tendons, and ligaments and larger hearts, greater lung volume per body mass, a higher red blood cell count, and higher hemoglobin.

(d) Men also have higher natural levels of testosterone, which affects traits such as hemoglobin levels, body fat content, the storage and use of carbohydrates, and the development of Type 2 muscle fibers, all of which result in men being able to generate higher speed and power during physical activity.
(e) The biological differences between females and males, especially as it relates to natural levels of testosterone, explain the male and female secondary sex characteristics which develop during puberty and have lifelong effects, including those most important for success in sport: categorically different strength, speed and endurance.”
Left wing organizations, such as the America Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), described the bill as “anti-trans,” and said that state filing this type of legislation are “attacking trans youth.”
Politicians are attacking trans youth in states around the country.

Transgender females are biological males who take hormones to make themselves more feminine and who, at some point, may undergo sex-change surgery to install fake breasts and crate an artificial vagina. Transgender males are biological females who take hormones to become more masculine and who may have their breasts removed by surgery and have their vaginas modified to create an artificial penis (phalloplasty).

Regardless of these treatments and procedures, the genetic identity of transgenders can never change. Females have XX chromosomes and males have XY chromosomes. In addition, real females have a cervix and a uterus — trangender “females” do not have a cervix or a uterus.
However, some scientists are exploring the procedure of uterus transplants into biological males.
