S.D. Gov. Kristi Noem releases national ad targeting transgender student athletes

South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem released a national advertisement on Thursday promoting legislation that targets transgender youths.

Without saying the word "transgender" or "trans," the ad promotes a bill that Noem, a Republican, introduced last month. The measure would prevent trans girls from playing on any female sports teams at school, including club teams.

Noem, the first woman to serve as South Dakota governor, said it would be "the strongest law in the nation protecting female sports."

"In South Dakota, only girls play girls' sports," the ad begins. "Why? Because of Gov. Kristi Noem's leadership. Noem has been protecting girls' sports for years and never backed down."

2. Hateful, nasty excuse for a putative human

Indeed.

But her constituents seem to love her.

I learned a lot about this subject from my two daughters who played sports in high school. It's possible (in track or swimming, for example) that your daughter might not win a race because they are running against a trans girl, but the value to that girl in being part of a team and accepted as who she is, is so life affirming for her that it's 10,000% worth it! Few of any of our children ever become professional athletes, or even play in college, but for even one transgender youth to find a home in sport, I'm fully on board.

3. Maybe an organization

Could come out of this for trans girls to play in a league just for them throughout the state. One door shuts, another opens kinda thing. This is so mean spirited..fight back
