This afternoon, a judge at the Utah State Capitol made the unexpected decision to overturn the ban against transgender girls competing in female sports, a law that has been in place since July. Over 12 other Republican-dominant states instated transgender athlete bans, which is why this sudden reversal comes as a bit of a surprise. However, this decision makes more sense considering the recent secret investigation conducted by Utah parents, who asked the Utah High School Activities Association to look into the biological sex of a student athlete who got first place, resulting in their own daughters to place second and third.
From San Francisco to New York City, one couldn’t help but see that there are homeless people everywhere. Many people used to say that the quality of life was so much better back then, but what made things worse? Having homeless people around the streets is more costly than one would think to relocate them in another vicinity.
A Utah lawmaker who proposed legislation prohibiting transgender athletes from participating in girls’ sports has announced that he will reintroduce the bill in 2022.
According to the Salt Lake Tribune, the bill, backed by Republican state Rep. Kera Birkeland, kicked the bucket in a Senate committee in the final week of the legislative session this year.
