Republican state Rep. Bruce Griffey from Tennessee has introduced a brand new bill the aim of which is to block transgender school students from joining the sport teams within the schools in correspondence with their gender identity. Moreover, the teachers who would ‘neglect’ this cruel rule and put a trans student in the team they consider suitable for themselves, these teachers might be put at risk of losing their jobs and being and deemed “ineligible to hold public office or a position as a school administrator for five years”.. The bill would force both elementary and secondary schools to ensure “that student athletes participate in school-sanctioned sports based on the student’s biological sex as indicated by the athlete’s original birth certificate issued at birth”. It is unclear how exactly teachers would be expected to comply with the measure, as it is not obligatory for children to present their birth certificates if they want to join any sport team at school.
