SDHSAA Transgender Policy

dale_no_tie3Do you think that opening up the door for high school males to compete with and share the locker rooms with the female athletes is a bad idea? If you are one of the many here in South Dakota who answered yes to that question, we could sure use your help. As we have been reporting, a consortium of lawmakers, concerned citizens, and nonprofit organizations have come together to oppose a policy recently enacted by the South Dakota High School Activities Association (SDHSAA). This policy literally makes provisions for a male student to compete with and share the locker rooms of the female team of his selected sport. The male student would only have to present evidence that he is gender confused in order to be permitted to compete on the girl’s team. And, although we have used a male student as an example in our reporting on this, the policy would also allow female gender confused students to compete with and use the locker rooms of the male team of her selected sport.
We are seeking to get the policy changed to one that reflects the values of South Dakota.
