On Monday afternoon the Senate Education Committee will consider S.B. 354 by Sen. Missy Irvin (R – Mountain View) and Rep. Sonia Barker (R – Smackover).
This good bill would prevent boys from competing against girls in female athletics in Arkansas.
In recent years we’ve seen biological males participate unfairly in women’s sports.
In 2019 a biological male who claims to be female won the female Cycling World Championship.
In other cases biological males have dominated at girls’ track and field.
S.B. 354 would prevent biological males who claim to be girls from competing in girls’ sports at school in Arkansas.
Letting males compete in girls’ sports destroys girls’ athletic programs. It hampers girls’ abilities to qualify for athletic scholarships, and it hurts their professional opportunities.
S.B. 354 would protect fairness in women’s sports at school and prevent these sorts of problems from happening in Arkansas.
