(TheRedWire.com) – Over the last several years, critics leveled objections at high schools and colleges for allowing transgender males to participate in female sports. Many young women say they cannot physically compete with biological males, and every year they’re robbed of the opportunities to compete fairly and of championships and scholarships. In some states, legislatures and governors are working to solve that problem.
On Thursday, February 3, South Dakota Republican Gov. Kristi Noem signed a bill into law requiring school sporting officials to only allow a person to compete in sports based on their gender at birth unless it’s a co-ed sport. Noem said it’s essential for biological women to have a fair and level playing field and an opportunity to experience success.

The Biden administration wasted no time in slamming the new law. White House assistant press secretary Kevin Munoz denounced the South Dakota law. He claimed Republicans targeted transgender kids and their families to secure political points. Munoz added the law amounted to bullying disguised as legislation to undermine national core values. Yet, is that true?
According to a Gallup poll released in May 2020, 62% of Americans align with Gov. Noem and agree athletes should play on sports teams based on their birth gender.
So, what do you think? Is the White House right? Should biological transgender men participate in women’s sports as a national core value?
