HB2706, the Save Women's Sports Bill, passed the AZ House and was sent to the Senate. There is a ton of very vocal opposition, including a list of businesses that activists have gotten to sign a letter of opposition. It is very politically heated. This bill would protect girls sports by ensuring that only biologically female students can play on girls teams. Transgender students would be allowed to play on teams that match their biology, or on co-ed teams. There is nothing discriminatory in this bill. Biology matters. Sports use classifications to divide athletes according to weight, age and sex for a reason. It's common sense. Protect title IX. Protect a level playing field for girls. Protect girls' access to sports and to potential college scholarships. Support HB2706.
