Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren denounced an Arizona bill on Thursday that would prevent biological males from competing in girls sports, calling the legislation “cruel.”

“Trans athletes are not a threat,” Warren tweeted. “We need to protect trans kids—and all LGBTQ+ kids—and ensure they feel safe and welcomed at school. I urge the Arizona legislature to reject this cruel bill.”

The “Save Women’s Sports Act” would assign high-school students to interscholastic and intramural leagues by their “biological sex” rather than their "identified" gender. This would group biological females together and biological males together as their own homogeneous groups. 

The bill was introduced by state representative Nancy Barto, a Phoenix Republican. It was co-sponsored by 22 other GOP legislators. It's intended to protect female athletes from competing against athletes who possess an obvious unfair advantage over them. 

“Female student-athletes should not be forced to compete in a sport against biological males, who possess inherent physiological advantages. When this is allowed, it discourages female participation in athletics and, worse, it can result in women and girls being denied crucial educational and financial opportunities,” Barto said.

Both public and private schools would be bound by the law, Yahoo reports.

In order for a transgender student to challenge a rejection from a girls sports league based on their male biology, the student must produce a sworn statement from a doctor describing the student’s “internal and external reproductive anatomy,” genetic makeup, and “normal endogenously produced levels of testosterone.”

Advocates for LGBT rights have skewered the bill. The National Center for Lesbian Rights claim that transgender athletes have not caused any issues and accused lawmakers of attempting to “polarize and divide” people.

Transgender students have been allowed to compete in leagues with their preferred gender since 2014.

The bill comes after three female high-school students and their families filed a federal lawsuit seeking to block transgender athletes from competing in girls sports in Connecticut.
