Editorial comment: You go girl!

LANSING, Mich. — Legislation introduced by Sen. Lana Theis (pictured) on Wednesday (March 10) would require Michigan schools to only permit students of the same biological sex to compete against one another in school-sanctioned gender specific athletics.

“As a society, we fought for generations to ensure girls and women, through Title IX, have an equal opportunity to compete in athletics on a level playing field,” said Theis, R-Brighton. “Sadly, today, identity politics threatens all that was sacrificed and gained. Across our country, biological females are losing opportunities at titles, records, scholarships and, at times, participation itself.”
