Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has rejected potential pushback from leftists and out-of-state entities threatening action against him for signing into law legislation protecting women's sports.

During an appearance on FNC’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Tuesday, DeSantis said you could not be “cowed” by so-called woke corporations.

“Well, it is interesting, Tucker,” he said.

“I think, as these bills were going through various legislatures, I remember the NCAA putting out a statement that said any state that enacts this, we’re not going to hold events there."

"And so I called the Speaker of the House in Florida and said, ‘Did you hear what they said?’ He said, ‘Well, we definitely got to get this done.’"

"You can’t be cowed by these organizations but particularly by woke corporations from doing the right thing," he added.

"So my view was throughout this whole time was we have to protect our girls," DeSantis said.

"It is discriminatory to force them to compete against biological males.”

“The price of having a tournament is I have to deny equal opportunity to hundreds of thousands of young girl and women athletes throughout Florida."

"I am much more willing to stand with the girls and to hell with these events,” he added.

DeSantis's new bill comes in 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.

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.
