The Governor of Arkansas, Asa Hutchinson signed a bill on Thursday which will now ensure that female athletes in the state are not forced to compete with biological males in sports.

The passing of the bill in Arkansas comes in the wake of South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem sending a similar bill back to her state legislature and refusing to sign it, using the excuse that she believed that the restrictions would open up the state to litigation from the NCAA.

It appears Hutchinson has no such qualms about protecting women’s sports.

As The Daily Wire reports:

Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson signed into law on Thursday a bill banning transgender female-identifying athletes from participating in women’s sports.

The new law, meant to preserve the integrity of female sports and protect girls and women from competing against biological males, comes amid a push by state legislatures to enact similar protections.

“Today, I have signed into law SB354, called the ‘Fairness in Women’s Sports Act.’ I have studied the law and heard from hundreds of constituents on this issue. I signed the law as a fan of women’s sports from basketball to soccer and including many others in which women compete successfully,” Hutchinson said in a statement. “This law simply says that female athletes should not have to compete in a sport against a student of the male sex when the sport is designed for women’s competition. As I have stated previously, I agree with the intention of this law. This will help promote and maintain fairness in women’s sporting events.”

GOP lawmakers in at least 20 states have introduced similar legislation this year, according to The Associated Press. Such states are reportedly under pressure by activists and organizations such as the NCAA to avoid implementing such bans. South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem recently declined to sign a similar bill and sent it back to the legislature to exempt college sports.



    1. I would prefer to see females beat the globalist puppet, libby snow flake males and send them home crying to their libby snow flake parents .

    2. They have been around for quite awhile (Weirdos) We’ve tolerated them because they’ve stayed in their own yards. Now they’re coming after heterosexuals as a target for their unbridled indignity fomented by the media, and now our government. They’re still weird, but of course, they’re now protected with speech codes and Hate Laws.

        1. People can have their own sexual preferences, but the government should remain neutral on that topic, and allow the culture to formulate a disposition for them. That’s why Fire Island, West Hollywood and other venues for your LGBTQS exist. I just don’t care what they do, as long as I’m not forced to interact with them, nor should our politicians enjoin the government in the capacity as ombudsmen for homosexuals.

          1. So, are you saying that, with the government neutral on the topic, it is OK for a biological male who identifies as a female to compete on female teams? If you don’t care that these trans folks might overwhelm the female athletes, perhaps you ought to ask the female athletes’ opinions — THEY might not want to be forced to interact with them either.

          2. actually…. when you allow males to compete against females it cost the taxpayer and that is me .. i dont care who you sleep with as long as it doesnt cost me money. and when you take away opportunity from one class due to your gender selection it cost money for the gender that is the victim.. girls who want an equal scholarship chance in a sport are not going to get it. so it is a money issue. eventually you have an all male sports program. no women sports… is that equality. i think transgenders are stupid. if it dangles your male. obey the rules for male and female. and crap about gender phobia making everything neutral is stupid. thank God we are not equal. women are what makes this world a little more stable and compassionate.

        1. They’re not normal, for sure. But be that as it may, this lifestyle is their choice. Our government is not responsible to protect, or particularly encourage (?) that choice.

          1. again the activity that makes you a transgender is your choice. dont push your activity on me because it cost me money . dont force me to accept your activity choice. dont change the laws or the media or anything to force me to accept your way of life. dont force my kids to accept your activities. dont preach to me that gay activity is suitable for me or my kids. when they become adults its their choice. i dont want to pay for it.

        1. LGBTSQS do not run this country. they are a product of their activity choice and the left runs this country. ever since obama became president then this biden/harris idiot the left is manufacturing an agenda athat will allow them to remain in control of our lives… and that is the fact. Nazi germany all over again

        1. MAGA is about less government control. LGCRAP requires government involvement qnd regulation

    1. The globalist puppet, libby snow flake males want to try to beat the females but want to use the male locker room so they can watch the males undress and shower and dress etc .

  1. globalists and globalist puppet $oro$ and globalist puppet democrat criminal party and globalist puppet rino criminal party and globalist puppet, libby snow flake males that can’t compete with normal males are going to have hurt feelings . . . . .

  2. When the whiner’s screams of agony lower out of the Dog Hearing Range, we’re going to get a solid 4 years of their opprobrium, kicking, court antics and media spin (At 30000 RPM) hurled against everyone west of the Azores for ‘allowing’ such hateful, bigoted, xenophobic, homophobic measures to pass. Expect many lowahsuits and the associated media documentaries (propaganda/indoctrination) to flood the internet and broadcast channels.

  3. As I say in my book, “From Preacher to Porn Star,” just because a man sticks tits on his chest and cuts his manhood off doesn’t make him a woman anymore than me standing in a garage with a tire around my neck makes me a car. Screwed up people. Back when I was in the ministry there were churches that think that trangender people are possessed by the Devil.

    1. As I’ve pointed out, these people have been around for eons. What they do is their business. We should not have to walk around on eggshells in order to prevent hurting their feelings. Did you know the California Legislature passed a law that makes it a CRIME to refuse to address trans-whatever’s by their “Preferred Pronoun”? In God’s name, these people need to be shown the door, or the rope…

    1. It’s BS, what the transgender movement is trying do to the biological women and girls and women sports.. Hats off to arkansa govern.
  4. Why should naturally-born women be forced to compete against biological males? Having ones male genitals removed and replaced with artificially-created female genitals does not make that individual a true female. He/she still has the male physiology.

    1. There’s an element of malevolent narcissism occurring within that faction. They’ve got the Big Government/Sympathetic Media bit in their teeth, and they’re playing their victim status to a tee. (Not surprisingly, lawyers are also cashing in on the controversy) They’re not victims of anything. They’ve chosen a lifestyle of sexual deviancy, so they will be regarded as deviants and weirdos. No one should disparage a population for relegating these people to locations where they won’t be seen engaging in their various activities.

  5. I am creating an honest wage from home 1900 Dollars/week , that is wonderful, below a year gone i used to be unemployed during an atrocious economy. I convey God on a daily basis. I used to be endowed with these directions and currently it’s my duty to pay it forward and share it with everybody,
    Here is where I started……….►  News701.Com

  6. Too bad this article needed to state false claim regarding SD. In fact that law needed and is being revised to protect from possible litigation. Gov. Nome spotted this and requested it to be “suredup” legally.

  7. South Dakota wasn’t the problem. The problem was that Gov. Noem lacked the political courage of a real conservative. Apparently, Arkansas has a real governor. Better luck to the people of South Dakota next election.

    1. Part of being ‘conservative’ entails having the courage of your convictions. These people aren’t conservatives, anymore than GHWB or his son were. Reagan was sort of a liberal, but at the very least, he was an inspiring speaker. Trump was somewhat conservative, which drew the virulent ire of a determined opposition to his agendas. It was my hope that during his Lame Duck term, he would have truly ‘drained the swamp’ without concern for the political ramifications.

  8. There is no such thing as a transgender God made males and Females Man made Eunuchs. Any one who thinks they are a different sex is sick and should not even be walking the street

    1. There actually were psychological definitions of homosexuals as being mentally ill. Films made for the edification of young boys taught them to be careful, and not befriend or accept rides from pederasts or men they don’t know. Today, an organization known as NAMBLA (North American Man Boy Love Association) campaigns to legalize pederasty. Anything goes with those weirdos.

  9. I feel that girls (women) created this mess, by being allowed to compete in men’s sports and interview in men’s locker rooms. Now we have a turnaround with make gender mutations competing in women’s sports.
    The chickens have come back to roost. Plain and simple governor, Let’s go back to men’s sports and women’s sports. Seemed a lot simpler back then

    1. Girls created the mess in Washington. Girls created the mess in Russia. Girls created the mess in Mexico. Girls created the mess in Germany. Girls created the mess in Venezuela. When you enfranchise women, you open the gates of Socialism to intrude into the culture, the media and the leadership.

  10. Thank you Governor for doing the sane thing for your Arkansas’ female athletes. If only more leaders would take the same action.
