Wisconsin Assembly passes bills barring biological males from female sports – Catholic World Report

The Republican-controlled Wisconsin Assembly approved two bills Wednesday that would protect girls’ and women’s school sports from participation by biological males who identify as females — votes that some Democrat lawmakers equated to hateful discrimination that could increase the likelihood of suicide among students who have changed gender identity. Lawmakers approved Assembly Bill 195 and Assembly Bill 196 by identical 59-38 votes and sent them on to the state Senate. The first bill defines sports in the University of Wisconsin and technical college sports based on the sex of the participants, “determined by a physician at birth and reflected on the birth certificate.” The second has the same regulations for public schools and private schools that participate in the school-choice program. The bills prohibit biological males from competing in female sports, and create a co-ed category for athletes who wish to compete against males and females.
