South Carolina Passes Bill to Keep Males Out of Women’s Sports over Massive Dem Opposition



Unnamed (7)South Carolina’s Republican-dominated House passed legislation Tuesday banning males from women’s sports despite Democrats’ stall tactics.

Democrats attempted to delay the vote by proposing an estimated 1,000 amendments, according to the Associated Press. Debate on the amendments Tuesday lasted eight hours, with Democrats proposing measures such as renaming the bill the “Discrimination Capital of the United States Act,” allowing high schools to opt out of the requirements and only allowing school bands to perform at girls’ sporting events.

The House then voted 82 to 28 to pass the “Save Women’s Sports Act,” which bans males from female sports in public schools at the secondary and postsecondary levels and allows schools to sue for damages over violations. Gender is determined by the sex listed on athletes’ original birth certificates under the legislation.
