Breakthrough in US sport

Well, at least in South Dakota, where clear language and good decision making has prevailed - for now.

1)"With respect to biological sex, one is either male or female."
2)A person's "sex is determined at fertilization and revealed at birth or, increasingly, in utero"
3)"[B]iological differences between males and females are determined genetically during embryonic development."
4)"Secondary sex characteristics that develop during puberty . . . generate anatomical divergence beyond the reproductive system, leading to adult body types that are measurably different between sexes."
I could copy and paste more, but it makes for such a good and sensible read. This should be a template for all countries to follow, not just one state in the US.

Looks like it's Republican

Let's see how many more states will pass it through.

"Looks like it's Republican"

Frustrating beyond belief, but doesn't surprise me. The Democrats are just the same as our LibDems and Labour where identity politics are concerned.

There are also some Republicans who have been "captured". I wonder if this one has any daughters?

Just skim read it. So sensible. Thanks OP. do you know if they can be overturned by anyone?

like this bit
A team or sport designated as being female is available only to participants who19 are female, based on their biological sex

Looks sensible but I think only allowing teams if they have 19 females in is a bit restrictive.

I don't care if it's Republican, it's good news. I'm sure it will be challenged hard but that would also be good news = more daylight.

The Democrats are trying to stop this at the national level with their "equality act".

EA Amendments.

Oh...I just fear the Republicans leading this charge.

On the other hand, it just shows that the majority of humans are GC. Even if most people couldn't define the term "Gender Critical" if asked, they can easily define male sex and female sex.
