Bride's Post-Wedding Call Leaves Guest Reeling

The bill defines "female" as "individuals of the female sex," and "male" as "individuals of the male sex."

It prohibits schools from allowing students to participate in athletic competitions "that are designated for a sex other than the student's biological sex."

The bill has been met with widespread criticism from LGBTQ advocates, who say it is discriminatory and will harm transgender students.

The Human Rights Campaign, a national LGBTQ advocacy group, has called the bill "a dangerous and harmful attack on transgender youth."

Courts are challenging the measure. On March 8, 2023, the ACLU sued Florida over the bill's legality. The ACLU claims the measure violates the Equal treatment Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment, which ensures equal treatment under the law.

The bill is scheduled to go into effect on July 1, 2023. DeSantis has said that the bill is necessary to protect the fairness of women's sports.

Critics of the bill say that it is based on false stereotypes about transgender athletes. They also say that the bill will harm transgender students by making them feel excluded and unsafe.

The bill is part of a larger trend of anti-transgender legislation being passed in states across the country. These bills have been condemned by LGBTQ advocates and civil rights groups.
