Liberals Lose It As DeSantis Signs Bill Protecting Women's Sports
Carson Swick / Townhall Tipsheet 

On Tuesday morning, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) signed the Fairness in Women’s Sports Act (FWSA) into law. Intended to do exactly as its name suggests, the FWSA establishes that “Athletic teams or sports designated for females, women, or girls may not be open to students of the male sex.” It goes into effect on July 1.

With DeSantis’ signature, the FWSA makes Florida the eighth state — following Alabama, Arkansas, Idaho, Mississippi, Montana, Tennessee, and West Virginia — to formally ban the participation of biological males in women’s athletics. Another Republican governor, Kristi Noem of South Dakota, has signed two executive orders with similar goals.

When signing the FWSA, DeSantis said that Florida needs to “protect our girls.” Various studies — including the December 2020 study published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine — have backed up his attitude. Even with reduced testosterone levels, transgender women enjoy significant advantages over biological women in height, strength, and coordination. Synthetic hormone alterations do not and cannot compensate for such naturally-occurring differences.

The Israel Defense Forces said they arrested a top Hamas leader during a raid in the West Bank early Wednesday.

Sheikh Jamal Tawil is allegedly linked to a number of suicide bombings and has been arrested by Israel multiple times. 

"Tawil is a senior figure in the Hamas terror group in the West Bank, who recently took an active part in organizing riots, inciting violence and reforming Hamas’s headquarters in Ramallah," the IDF said in a statement, according to The Times of Israel. 

Hamas responded to the arrest by saying it would not "silence" the group’s voice in the region. 

"The sons of Hamas and its commanders are all soldiers of the resistance, and they will continue the path of freedom and liberation whatever the sacrifices," the statement said.
