Governor Ron DeSantis has been keeping his state safe from COVID…induced economic shutdown, lockdown, masking, and school closures, and now he’s tackling another side of “woke”: He isn’t allowing transgender males to compete in girls sports.
DeSantis went on Tucker last Tuesday to explain:
“You can’t be cowed by these organizations, or particularly by woke corporations from doing the right thing. And so my view was throughout this whole time, we have to protect our girls, it is discriminatory to force them to compete against biological males,” DeSantis continued. “And so if the price of having a tournament is that I have to deny equal opportunity to hundreds of thousands of young girl and women athletes throughout Florida, I am much more willing to stand with the girls. And to hell with these events.”
