'Transphobes have got to go': Protests against anti-trans legislation held statewide

More than 75 people gathered at the Southeast Technical Institute in Sioux Falls Saturday as part of a statewide protest against anti-trans legislation in the state of South Dakota.

The statewide marches are in protest of House Bill 1217, legislation that would ban transgender women and girls from competing on the sports teams that match their gender identity, according to Susan Williams, executive director of the Transformation Project Advocacy Network.

The bill's sponsors say it is to promote continued fairness in women's sports, according to the state legislature website.

"We want to show these trans kids that we have their backs, we're here for them and there are people here that will fight for their rights," Williams said.

1. Uh huh

One has to wonder if this is less about keeping competition 'fair' in women's sports, and more about making sure a trans male doesn't waltz into some football tryout and kick all the 'real' boy's asses. Serious question, what is the gender ratio in the S.D. legislature? I would find that information interesting, I bet.
