Florida's Republican Governor Ron DeSantis is signing a bill that aims to protect women’s sports.

The move comes as direct opposition to the Left's push to allow biological males, "identifying" as female, to compete against biological women.

DeSantis said Tuesday:

“In Florida, girls and going to play girls sports, and boys are going to play boys sports."

The Florida legislature passed a measure in April to prevent transgender athletes from participating in women’s sports in both colleges and high schools.

DeSantis is now signing the measure into law during an event at Trinity Christian Academy in Jacksonville, Florida.

As Democrats decried the measures as discriminatory, Florida State Sen. Victor Torres said the bill would destroy the lives of those children and their futures."

The bill makes an individual’s “biological sex” on a birth certificate the prime factor in determining if an individual is eligible to play on a female sports team.

Florida Sen. Kelli Stargel (R) said of the measure:

“It’s not meant to be hurtful. It’s not meant to be discriminating. It’s not meant to attack any group."

“This is not about that. This is about sports and having competitive advantage and having the ability to compete,” she said.

She added measure is meant to aid women, giving them the opportunity “to participate, to get scholarships, to excel with other women of like strength and capability.”

The bill comes amid a number of key actions taken by DeSantis over recent weeks, including Big Tech censorship, election integrity, and vaccine passports.

Last week, DeSantis said people are moving to Florida in droves and “overwhelmingly” registering as Republicans.

“The media at the beginning of this said Florida’s bad, and I think it’s because they want to damage Trump in Florida, they want to damage me," DeSantis said.

“And even though the facts didn’t say it, like literally last April, they’re saying Florida is doing worse than New York," he added.

"New York was like 10 times worse.”
