Call Governor Cox today at 801-538-1000, between 8am and 5pm. Ask the receptionist to give Governor Cox your message to please sign HB 11, Student Eligibility Interscholastic Activities. NO VETO.
This bill prohibits male students from competing in girls’ sports. Because of Title IX, which established girls’ sports in the schools, we have had girls’ teams, boys’ teams and coed teams. If governor Cox vetoes this bill we will have only boys’ teams and coed teams. Governor Cox said he plans to veto HB 11, that is why we must act now. He must receive 1000s of requests for NO VETO.
Boys are usually bigger, stronger, and faster than girls. Boys participating in girls’ sports diminishes the girls’ opportunity to fairly compete. HB 11 ensures that female athletes have a fair and level playing field. We Cannot Forget About The Girls Who, Without This Law, Will Be Forced to Play Against Biological Boys, Competing for Team Positions and College Scholarships.
Boys dealing with gender dysphoria will still be able to participate in sports. HB11 designates “coed” or “mixed” sports as a place where both sexes can play. HB 11 states, "Sex is defined as the biological, physical condition of being male or female, determined by an individual's genetics and anatomy at birth.”
If biological boys qualify to play on girls’ teams then they would qualify to Share Girls’ Bathrooms, Showers, Dressing Rooms, As Well As the Sharing of Hotel Rooms With Girls When Traveling With the Teams.
There are 11 states that have passed laws that ban biological males from competing with females in girls’ and women’s sports. Several more states are working on the same bills. What a terrible thing if Utah did not join all these other states in SAVING GIRLS’ SPORTS.
