TOPEKA, Kansas (LifeSiteNews) – Democrat Kansas Gov. Laura Kelly vetoed legislation on April 15 that would have kept gender-confused males out of sporting events designed specifically for females, as well as a bill empowering parents to challenge public school curricula.
Kelly claimed the Fairness in Women’s Sports Act was “divisive,” would repel businesses, and “didn’t come from the experts” in school athletics; and that under the parental-rights bill, which would require schools to develop a process through which parents can raise objections to classroom material, “money that should be spent in the classroom would end up being spent in the courtroom,” the Kansas City Star reports.
“Democrats in Kansas are determined to find out the hard way what Democrats in Virginia learned last year: voters don’t elect candidates who tell parents they don’t matter,” responded Republican Governors Association spokeswoman Joanna Rodriguez, referring to last fall’s Republican sweep of Virginia, which was fueled in large part by popular discontent with Democrat obstinance on both issues.
The entire country has seen what happens when men enter women's sports.
Lia Thomas is a biological male, but he was nonetheless allowed swim against elite female competitors to win an NCAA Freestyle competition, much to the disappointment of those women who had trained so hard to compete.
SIGN THE PETITION TO BAN MALES FROM WOMEN'S SPORTS TODAY
Males have a natural advantage over females in the vast majority of sports, so allowing them to enter women's sports can:
- crush the motivation of the biological girls who have worked hard to compete on a level playing field
- put females into harm's way in contact sports and locker rooms
- deprive women of their right to fairly compete for college scholarships and many other accolades
We all know the spectacle of Lia Thomas defeating those female swimmers was a charade, a mockery of women's sports, but now it's time to do something about it.
Please SIGN this urgent petition calling on members of Congress to pass a law banning the participation of biological males in women's sports.
This is not just about ensuring biological girls and women can compete fairly and win in their chosen sports, but it's also a major safety issue in contact sports and the dangerous use of women's locker rooms by gender-confused males.
Some of you will remember Fallon Fox, the male MMA fighter who claimed to be a woman and left his female opponent concussed and with a fractured skull.
Fox later announced on social media that he enjoys "smacking up" women who "talk transphobic nonsense."
Any reasonable person knows men shouldn't compete against women, but some people are too politically correct to take a stand and protect girls and women from this madness.
It's now time to join the growing pushback against the gender-confused lobby and their dangerous beliefs that have literally left some female competitors in the hospital.
Please SIGN this common sense petition calling on Congress to ban all males from competing in women's sport.
Future generations will look back with gratitude on those who stood on the right side of history, defending women from these very confused males.
Nothing less than a federal ban on biological males forcing their way into women's sport is enough, so this petition will be sent to all members of Congress demanding legislative action.

Fairness in Women’s Sports supporters argue that indulging supposedly transgender athletes’ desire to compete as their “new gender” undermines the rational basis for having sex-specific athletics in the first place – the immutable physical differences between men and women – thereby depriving female athletes of recognition and professional or academic opportunities. Scientific research affirms that concern, indicating that hormone suppression does not suffice to cancel out the physiological advantages enjoyed by male athletes.
In a paper published by the Journal of Medical Ethics, New Zealand researchers found that “healthy young men [do] not lose significant muscle mass (or power) when their circulating testosterone levels were reduced to (below International Olympic Committee guidelines) for 20 weeks,” and “indirect effects of testosterone” on factors such as bone structure, lung volume, and heart size “will not be altered by hormone therapy”; therefore, “the advantage to transwomen [biological men] afforded by the [International Olympic Committee] guidelines is an intolerable unfairness.”
The parental rights bill is part of a wave of similar laws being proposed by Republicans across the country in response to a deluge of examples of left-wing teachers using their taxpayer-funded positions of authority to expose captive underage audiences to various far-left doctrines, from critical race theory to gender fluidity.
Republican lawmakers say the will attempt to override both vetoes, but while votes in the state Senate were relatively close to the necessary threshold, House votes fell 10 short on the women’s sports bill and 17 short on the parental rights bill.
