The federal Office for Civil Rights has launched an investigation into Connecticut’s policy allowing transgender high school athletes to compete as the gender with which they identify. The investigation follows a complaint by the families of three girls, who say they were discriminated against by having to compete in track against two athletes who were identified as male at birth. They say that violates Title IX, the federal law designed to ensure equal athletic opportunities for females. (AP Photo/Pat Eaton-Robb, File)

Florida lawmakers have passed a bill banning transgender female athletes from competing on women’s sports teams due to the unfair genetic advantage males have over women athletically.
The Florida House and Senate yesterday approved a bill that would make it illegal for those who were born male to compete against females at public high schools and colleges.
The bill would limit transgender female athletes to coed sports, or to play on teams with male athletes.
The ban is attached as an amendment to a charter school bill. The bill now goes to Governor Ron DeSantis, who is expected to sign it.
