Republican Gov. Desantis Signs The Fairness In Women’s Sports Act

Due to pressures by progressive “woke” corporations who wanted trans athletes to be allowed to participate in their preferred gender, Republican Governor Ron DeSantis has decided to sign the Fairness in Women’s Sports Act. The act forbids biological males from competing in biological women’s sports.

“When he heard that the NCAA was kind of threatening that they would pull out of events here in Florida or in any state that signed these types of bills, that strengthened his resolve because he doesn’t want to be bullied or allow the people of Florida to be bullied by this organization or by woke corporations,” DeSantis’ press secretary Christina Pushaw said in an interview with Daily Caller News Foundation.

“All of this pressure just makes Governor DeSantis even stronger in his conviction to do the right thing, to do what he knows will be best for the people of Florida,” Pushaw said.

Upon signing the act into a law, DeSantis said in a press conference, “We believe that it is very important that the integrity of those competitions are preserved. That these opportunities are protected.” 

“In Florida, girls are going to play girl’s sports, and boys are going to play boy’s sports. That’s what we’re doing, and we’re going to make sure that’s the reality,” DeSantis said.

“Just let me say very clearly, in Florida, we’re going to do what right. We’ll stand up to corporations, they are not going to dictate the policies in this state. We will stand up to groups like the NCAA who think that they should be able to dictate the policies in different states. Not here, not ever,” DeSantis added.

This issue brings to mind the story of a transgender MMA fighter named Fallon Fox who competed against natural-born women. Fox beat up some of her opponents badly, including Tamikka Brents, who claimed that her opponent felt too strong for a woman.

In an interview back in 2014, Brents recounted her experience with Fox inside the cage: “I’ve fought a lot of women and have never felt the strength that I felt in a fight as I did that night. I can’t answer whether it’s because she was born a man or not because I’m not a doctor. I can only say, I’ve never felt so overpowered ever in my life and I am an abnormally strong female in my own right. Her grip was different, I could usually move around in the clinch against other females but couldn’t move at all in Fox’s clinch.”
