Republican Governor Of Indiana Vetoes Bill Banning Men From Female Sports, Claims "The Bill Leaves Too Many Unanswered Questions" 🤨
· Mar 22, 2022 · NottheBee.com

We've said it before, but it bears repeating: With Republicans like these, who needs Democrats?

The Republican Governor of Indiana, Eric Holcomb, got out his veto pen to reject a bill that would ban men from women's sports.

Here's how CNN reported the story:

Indiana Republican Gov. Eric Holcomb on Monday vetoed a bill that would've prohibited transgender women and girls from competing on sports teams consistent with their gender at schools in the state, saying the legislation was too broadly written.

The legislation, which cleared the state legislature earlier this month, states that "a male, based on a student's biological sex at birth in accordance with the student's genetics and reproductive biology, may not participate on an athletic team or sport designated under this section as being a female, women's, or girls' athletic team or sport." The bill would also protect schools and athletic associations from liability for enforcing the legislation.

But Holcomb said in a letter Monday, "Amidst the flurry of enthusiasm to protect the integrity and fairness of women's sports in our state -- a worthy cause for sure -- this bill leaves too many unanswered questions." The GOP governor specifically cited concerns about how the legislation would be applied consistently across the state, noted previous lawsuits challenging similar laws across the country and touted Indiana's K-12 sports program as it stands.

"If it is the goal of HEA 1041 to provide clarity and one consistent state policy regarding the fairness in K-12 sports in Indiana, for me this current bill falls short," he said.

Holcomb claims the bill is too ambiguous and leaves too many "unanswered questions."

What the heck is he talking about? Maybe he's having a hard time understanding the concept of "man" and "woman."

Again, here's the relevant portion of the bill:

A male, based on a student's biological sex at birth in accordance with the student's genetics and reproductive biology, may not participate on an athletic team or sport designated under this section as being a female, women's, or girls' athletic team or sport.

Translation: Boys cannot compete with girls.

That's it.

Is that still too confusing for you, governor?

Let's be clear, the governor did not veto this bill because it wasn't clear enough or because he wanted a stronger bill.

He's just making excuses for his fecklessness.

Here's more from CNN showing that the Left views this as an absolute victory:

"This victory belongs to the trans youth of Indiana, who deserve to live as their authentic selves and to play the sports they love, free from discrimination," Katie Blair, public policy director of the Indiana ACLU, said in a statement Monday. "This win wouldn't have been possible without the thousands of Hoosiers who voiced their strong opposition to state legislators and who showed up at the Statehouse to oppose this harmful bill. Discrimination has no place in our state."

When the ACLU is applauding your choice to veto the bill because they deem the bill "harmful" then you are no conservative.

Holcomb joins the Governor of Utah in the club of spineless GOP Governors who won't stand up for basic human biology and protecting women in recent weeks.
