Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) announced that she will soon be voting for a bill to ban transgender student-athletes from participating in school sports, and she called the student-athletes “trans terrorists” for wanting to play sports.

“This week, I’ll be voting for H.R. 734, the Protection of Women and Girls in Sports Act of 2023,” she wrote. “I’m proud to cosponsor [Rep. Greg Steube’s (R-FL)] bill to ensure women are fully protected by Title IX by making sure biological men are never competing against women in sports.”

“Trans terrorists want to beat women down, but I will never allow that to happen without putting up a fight.”

On Twitter, Greene faced criticism that the bill is a waste of time, both because of its subject matter and also because President Joe Biden – who issued an executive order protecting trans students from discrimination in schools in 2021 – won’t sign it.

Steube’s bill would amend Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, the law that currently prohibits sex-based discrimination in education. The Biden administration has said that Title IX prohibits anti-LGBTQ+ discrimination in schools because it is impossible to discriminate against LGBTQ+ people without taking sex into account, reasoning used by the Supreme Court in its 2020 Bostock v. Clayton Co. ruling.

If passed, H.R. 734 would prohibit sports associated with schools that receive federal funding from permitting “a person whose sex is male to participate in an athletic program or activity that is designated for women or girls” and would define sex as “based solely on a person’s reproductive biology and genetics at birth.”

The bill doesn’t put any limits on a school district’s zeal in determining a student-athlete’s “reproductive biology,” and some states have considered or passed bills requiring genital inspections for girls who want to participate in school sports.
