TRANSCRIPT

More states are debating bills that combat so-called transgenderism, now promoted by the Biden administration.

The newest states to challenge Biden's executive order, which interprets federal non-discrimination law to support gender-confusion, are Mississippi and Alabama.

The "Mississippi Fairness Act," overwhelmingly passed by both chambers of state government last week, protects female athletes in public schools, colleges and universities by forbidding biological males to compete with them.

Republican governor Tate Reeves promises to sign the bill. The governor tweeted Thursday it's crazy to have to address this, but the White House executive order has forced the issue.

Governor Reeves: "We all know normal has not been in the cards."

Next door in Alabama, the state Senate just voted 23–4 to pass a bill making it a felony to provide minors with hormone therapy, puberty-blocking drugs or mutilating surgery to mimic their opposite sex. It further forbids school employees to withhold from parents or guardians any counseling on gender confusion a child receives.

Alabama's bill now goes to the state House of Representatives where it is expected to pass.

Talk host: "Apparently there's a companion bill in the Alabama House. It looks like it's going to pass."

Only Idaho, among all 50 states, has signed such a bill into law. Idaho law mandates the gender-confused put only their biological sex on their driver's licenses. It also forbids biological males from playing in women's sports. This Idaho law, however, is being challenged in court.

News anchor: "But until this case goes to trial and is settled in court, it cannot be enforced."

Unsurprisingly, leftist groups such as Human Rights Campaign and Southern Poverty Law Center have condemned the bills, claiming such laws would harm people.

Gender dysphoria, what used to be known as gender identity disorder, has become greatly politicized since the Obama administration.

Obama: "You have transgender kids in schools."

So often, when the Left manufactures a social movement, women and children are its biggest victims. States that understand this are now fighting back.
