Dynamite GOP Governor Kicks Off ‘Pride Month’ With a Bang

Firebrand Republican Governor of Florida Ron DeSantis took bold action to preserve women’s and girls school sports program this week.

The America-First governor signed a bill banning transgender women from competing against biological woman and girls in school sports.

“I can tell you this much: In Florida, girls are going to play girls sports and boys are going to play boys sports,” DeSantis said at the signing ceremony.

Fairness and integrity were the intentions behind the bill, according to the Republican governor. He believes, like many Americans do, that school sports programs should be gender-specific as to eliminate certain biological advantages different sexes are born with. The bill bars athletes from competing on school sports teams for a gender that is different than that on their birth certificates.

“In the state of Florida, we want to protect the fairness and integrity of women’s athletic programs,” he declared.

DeSantis’s garnered immense criticism for his decision to sign the bill on June 1st, the first day of Pride month. However, many DeSantis reporters and conservatives giggled at the timing, noting its Trump-like qualities. However, Democrats and gay activists alike were up-in-arms about the Florida Republican’s new legislation.

Democratic state Rep. Carlos Smith, Florida’s first openly gay Latino legislator, weighed in:

In a separate tweet, Smith added another “FUN FACT” for his followers to enjoy: “The GOP  spent more time passing legislation to push transgender children out of school sports than they spent trying to lower your home owner’s insurance rates. That’s the way they govern now.”

Another Florida Democrat called the bill “heartless.”

And to top it off, The Human Rights Campaign, a Radical-Left gay rights organization known for their dirty politics chimed in to threaten legal action.

Despite the backlash, DeSantis’ bold action ultimately protects girls and boys alike, leveling the playing field for athletes across the state. It’s expected that other Republican governors will sign similar bills.
