The Gret Stet of Mississippi always has its eye on the ball, so to speak:
Senate Bill 2536, which prohibits transgender athletes from competing on women’s sports teams in the state’s high schools and universities, passed the Mississippi House by a vote of 81-28. The state’s Senate approved the measure last month by a vote of 34-9.
The legislation now heads to Republican Gov. Tate Reeves for approval. The governor, who has previously made comments highly critical of transgender athletes, said in a tweet Thursday that he would sign it.
“Adults? That’s on them,” Reeves tweeted. “But the push for kids to adopt transgenderism is just wrong.”
Mississippi has a boatload of problems, not the least of which is a pandemic running wild (and oddly removing a mandatory mask declaration), but they are a-fixin’ t’ solve th’ non-existent problem of transwomen playing sports.
