Kansas Senate Overrides Governor’s Veto on Transgender Sports Ban Bill

The Kansas Senate on Monday voted to override Gov. Laura Kelly’s veto on The Fairness in Women’s Sports Act, a bill that would ban biological male athletes from competing in women’s school sports across the state.

Also known as SB 160, the legislation “requires interscholastic, intercollegiate, intramural, or club athletic teams or sports that are sponsored by public educational institutions” to ban male students from joining teams or sports “designated for females.”

It does not ban female athletes or girls from participating in men’s or boys’ sports.

The bill was introduced by Republicans in February 2021 and vetoed by Kelly on April 15.

However, the Senate voted 28–10 on Monday to override the governor’s veto, and it now heads to the House for lawmakers to vote to sustain or override the veto.

  1. Politicians have stopped representing the voters and seem to think they know whats best for the average American regarding all subjects. Just who they represent, not most Americans. Time for them to get a big reminder of their job requirements.

  2. According to the latest data, Kansas has a net outflow of residents. Also, the state, like every other state, is still recovering from government mandated lockdowns. I’m sure parts of Kansas has a crime problem, and there are probably poverty and budgetary issues that need to be addressed as well.

    So the liberals in Kansas are pissed because boys cannot play girls’ sports? This is the burning issue in Kansas at present? These people don’t have anything better to do – like help the Jayhawks in their NCAA investigation? Look, here is an easy solution: start a transgender league. You would have boys’ sports, girls’ sports, and transgender sports. And if left-handed midgets who not only stutter but identify as iguanas complain, authorize a sports league for them as well.

    You’re welcome.

  3. It’s time to put an end to minorities being the voice of the majority.
    LGBTQXYZ+ > 1%
    Being part of a minority DOES NOT grant you special consideration or privilege, it grants you the same privilege of getting your dumb ass out of bed and go work, like the rest of America.

  4. Also, America has why to many college students that think their college degree makes them to good to flip burgers.
    I’m sorry but that’s exactly what your Degree in Liberal Arts or Czechoslovakian History, has trained you for. Just one step above “broom pusher”.

  5. @Wyatt, I agree 100%. Let them all have their own groups to control. Not the groups they want to take over because they can and not one is stopping them.

    We MUST PRAY everyday!

    God Bless us all!
