Wisconsin Assembly Republicans stand up as one in support of transphobia


he state Assembly on Wednesday passed a set of Republican-authored bills that would ban transgender athletes from participating in girls and women’s sports at the K-12 and college levels. 
Republicans have pressed forward with the legislation this spring even though it has received strong condemnation from the LGBT community and Democrats, as well as from the Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association, which has called the bills “unnecessary.” 
The Assembly approved the two bills 59-38 on party-line votes, and they now go to the state Senate.
