Florida Advances Anti-Trans “Genital Inspections” Bill

Tallahassee’s NBC News affiliate reports:

The Florida House on Wednesday passed a bill that would ban transgender females from competing girls’ and women’s high school and college sports. The bill passed with a vote of 77-40 after a heated debate. The bill would make participation in athletics contingent on determining a students’ “biological sex,” which is a disputed term that refers to the sex assigned at birth.

Law & Crime reports:

Disputes regarding a student’s sex under the law would be resolved with a “health examination and consent form” verifying the student’s biological sex. “The health care provider may verify the student’s biological sex as part of a routine sports physical examination by relying only on one or more of the following: 1. The student’s reproductive anatomy; 2. The student’s genetic makeup; or 3. The student’s normal endogenously produced testosterone levels.”
