LFF is asking Louisiana to call Gov. Edwards and express your support for SB 156, the Fairness in Women’s Sports Act. He has until June 21st to take action or allow it to become law without a signature. Please send the Governor a message encouraging support of SB 156.
The bill ensures fairness in women’s sports by protecting female athletes from being forced to compete against bigger, stronger, and more competitive male athletes. It was passed overwhelmingly by a bipartisan vote of the Louisiana Legislature.
Allowing men to compete in women’s sports, threatens ALL women. If we don’t protect the playing field now, then eventually all we will have is male-dominated sports.
Earlier this week, the Biden Department of Education issued an interpretation on sexual identity which may incentivize a Governor Edwards veto on SB 156. However, the DOE ruling based on Bostock decision was wrongly interpreted.
U.S. Supreme Court explicitly stated on page 31 of the Bostock opinion:
“The employers worry that our decision will sweep beyond Title VII to other federal or state laws that prohibit sex discrimination. Any under Title VII itself, they say sex-segregated bathrooms, locker rooms, and dress codes will prove unsustainable after our decision today. But none of these other laws are before us; ……. Under Title VII, too, we do not purport to address bathrooms, locker rooms, or anything else of the kind. The only question before us is whether an employer who fires someone simply for being homosexual or transgender has discharged or otherwise discriminated against that individual ‘because of such individual’s sex.’”
John Bel Edwards must protect women’s sports from male domination and Louisiana schoolchildren from Biden sexual politics. Please click here to contact Gov. Edwards and send him your message!
