Unfairness will continue in Pennsylvania girls’ sports until further notice. Democrat Gov. Tom Wolf assured that by this week vetoing a bill that would have protected female athletics from male incursions. 

Gov. Wolf is up for re-election this year, and he aims to keep his woke supporters happy enough to re-elect him. He called the “Fairness in Women’s Sports Act” legislation to stop the transgender madness “hate”: 

I have been crystal clear during my time in office that hate has no place in Pennsylvania, especially discrimination against already marginalized youth representing less-than-half of 1 percent of Pennsylvania’s population. 

Gov. Wolf ripped supporters of the “incredibly harmful” bill, saying they "should be ashamed of themselves" for voting for it. 

State Sen. Doug Mastriano, a Republican candidate for governor, disagreed. A large majority of people polled agree with the bill he sponsored in the Senate: 53 percent, with 32 percent opposed.

Terry Schilling, president of the American Principles Project (APP), said the governor and his party are out of touch with mainstream thinking on the transgender problem and predicted they may pay for it in November: 

While opposing this bill may have helped Wolf and [Pennsylvania Attorney General] Josh Shapiro curry favor with radical leftist activists, it will not help them with Pennsylvania voters, a strong majority of whom support protecting women’s sports. This will be a serious liability for Democrats in November, and Republicans like Doug Mastriano are smart to be drawing this contrast. 

As long as Democrats continue to side against biological reality and sanity, they should expect to pay a political price and that begins this fall. 

An APP news release argued that every girl in the state deserves a fair playing field that excludes boys from participating in their sport. Pennsylvanians know all too well what happens when male interlopers wreck the competitive balance of women’s sports. Penn University male student Will “Lia” Thomas (seen above in photo) wreaked havoc on its women’s swimming team this past year by dominating races and denying women victories and medals. 

State Rep. Stephanie Borowicz (R-Clinton, Pa.), a former athlete, said supporters of the bill "will never stop fighting, and in the end, we will win this battle to keep competitive women’s sports fair, and exclusively female." 

The legislation aims to require public school athletic teams to "be expressly designated" based on biological sex, and that athletic teams designated for ‘females, women or girls’ " and not "be open to students of the male sex."
