The bill is known as the “Women’s Bill of Rights” and seeks to protect women’s rights in places like locker rooms and bathrooms that have been increasingly infiltrated by biological males who have decided they “feel” like a girl.
“The Democrats are erasing women and the spaces that are uniquely ours,” House Rep. Debbie Lesko (R-Ariz) said in a press conference to announce the bill on Thursday.
“It’s pretty simple. It acknowledges the biological differences in men and women, highlights the importance of differentiating between men and women involved for the purposes of protecting sex-segregated activities and organizations, and affirms the importance of using ‘mother’ and ‘father’ in written law to protect families,” Lesko noted.
Three Republican senators introduced the bill in the Senate including Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Mo.), Cynthia Lummis (R-Wyo.), and Ted Cruz (R-Texas). There were 11 co-sponsors of the House version.
“The radical Left has launched an attack on biology because they want to put themselves above God and they want to brainwash our daughters with their woke-ism,” Rep. Mary Miller (R-Ill.) said.
In Australia, Julia Gillard and her government removed the definitions of man and woman from the Sex Discrimination Act (SDA) in 2013.
This has led to males appropriating the female sex to play sport, be housed in female prisons and access a range of female-only spaces and services.
Senator Claire Chandler has tabled a bill in parliament to reinstate the definitions to protect women in sport.
Binary spokeswoman, Kirralie Smith, said if you can’t define the word woman you cannot protect women.
“The terms male and female, man and woman, boy and girl, must be rooted in facts, biological facts,” she said.
“Words matter. A civil society cannot function well if fundamental, basic language is redefined on a whim because a small minority claim to have hurt feelings.
“Women and girls deserve protection in legislation from males appropriating their sex, this can only be achieved via clear definitions.”
