Teen Athletes' Gender Based on Genitals, NOT Whim

The South Dakota legislature finds itself having to pass a law to make clear that a person's sex is determined at birth.  Lawmakers are deciding how to rein in the state athletics board that jumped on board the Gay Agenda bandwagon last year by allowing students to declare their gender in order to choose boys or girls sports teams.  Genital exams may soon be required to verify the actual gender of state residents, including student athletes.
“This is South Dakota. We haven’t adopted the East Coast culture. We haven’t adopted the West Coast culture. We maintain our own culture”
-- Rep. Roger Hunt, R-Brandon

-- From "'Visual inspection' could be part of state law to determine gender identity" by Bart Pfankuch, Rapid City Journal 8/23/15

The proposal from Rep. Roger Hunt, R-Brandon, would rely on official birth certificates and visual inspections for determining gender rather than allowing people to decide and declare their gender on their own.

He said gender is determined at conception and the transgender debate is riding the gay marriage wave.

The committee vote was 6-5. The panel spent several hours considering again the policy set last year by the South Dakota High School Activities Association board of directors.

Sen. Bill Van Gerpen, R-Tyndall, said the Legislature set policies on substance abuse and concussions for the association in previous years and should determine the gender policy too.

From "Group keeps policy on transgender high school athletes" by James Nord, Associated Press 8/27/15

South Dakota's high school activities association on Thursday largely maintained its policy allowing transgender student athletes to request to play on the team of their choice, increasing the likelihood Republicans in the statehouse will push legislation to change it.

The association's policy aims to provide a way for transgender students to participate on the sports teams that reflect their gender identities rather than the sex listed on their birth certificates. So far, a transgender student hasn't made a request under the policy.

Association board Chairman Jason Uttermark said he doesn't view the differing approaches to the policy as a conflict with the Legislature. He said policymakers are attempting to figure out the right thing to do and said he would "wholeheartedly" accept a legislative directive.

"We're really not coming up with a philosophical position," he said. "Our policy is strictly a legal position, and right now it's what we believe is putting our member schools in the best situation from a possible lawsuit."

From "Transgender athlete bill to be drafted at committee’s request" by Dana Ferguson, Argus Leader (Sioux Falls, SD) 8/20/15

Rep. Jim Bolin, R-Canton . . . said minors don’t have the authority to deny the sex designated on their birth certificate as it is part of an official state document. He said he would be happy to see the measure pass the full Legislature next session.

The bill that will be drafted by the state’s Legislative Research Council will come before the committee for approval later this year. If approved, it will go before the full Legislature next session.

The South Dakota High School Activities Association drafted the transgender policy last year after consulting other state’s approaches. No specific case prompted the policy.

Fourteen other states and Washington, D.C. have policies similar to South Dakota’s on the books.
