The state of Idaho has joined a growing nationwide movement to prevent transgender athletes from competing in sports of the opposite sex, Breitbart reports.
The legislation will be introduced by State Representative Barbara Ehardt (R-Idaho), who said that “boys and men will not be able to take the place of girls and women in sports because it’s not fair. We cannot physically compete against boys and men.”
This follows a similar effort in the state of Tennessee, as previously reported, where lawmakers are proposing legislation that will force allegedly “transgender” students to compete on the teams of their actual biological sex.
In Idaho, Representative Ehardt said she is also working on reintroducing a bill from the previous legislative session that will give parents the full authority to decide whether or not their children are enrolled in sex education curriculum in school.
