Alaska Board Of Education Stands Up For Women, Votes To Bar ‘Trans-Identifying’ Men From Women’s High School Level Sports

The board of education in Alaska has decided to draw a hard line in the sand against biological men pretending to be women just so they can compete in women’s sports by voting on a policy which would make this permanent.

“If a separate high school athletics team is established for female students, participation shall be limited to females who were assigned females at birth,” read the proposal.

According to the Hill, all that is needed for the vote to become law is approval from Alaska’s Attorney General Greg Taylor. Once approved, this would become the unformed policy among all Alaskan school districts which are part of the Alaska School Activities Association which overseas the coordination of k-12 sports in the state.

The current Association guidelines currently leave this type of decision up to each individual school as to whether or not they allow biological males to compete against real females in women’s designated sports.

“However, if a school determines that a transgender student is eligible to compete, that determination ‘shall remain in effect for the duration of the student’s high school eligibility,’” according to the Hill. “Transgender students attending member schools that do not have written policies in place ‘may only participate based upon [their] gender assigned at birth,’ according to ASAA guidelines.”

Members of the state’s education board introduced a proposal in June, following the failure of a similar bill by state Republicans to progress from the committee. Republican Gov. Mike Dunleavy also proposed a bill aimed at safeguarding girls’ restrooms and locker rooms.

The ACLU of Alaska released a statement on X, formerly known as Twitter, denouncing the decision by the Board of Education

“This police is unconstitutional and harmful to all Alaskan students,” they posted.

To date, 23 states have enacted laws to protect female sports teams, though court injunctions are temporarily halting those in Arizona, Idaho, West Virginia, and Utah.
