Males have entered female sporting events at the high school and college levels and have won trophies for defeating women. Meridian Baldacci of the Family Policy Alliance tells OneNewsNow "even if the male goes through hormone therapy" he still has an advantage because of how males are designed.

"For example, men have greater bone density, greater muscle mass, [and] greater cardiovascular capacity," Baldacci continues. "And while those things might diminish after hormone therapy, they do not actually go away. We still end up with women at a disadvantage."

Baldacci believes all 50 states should follow Idaho's lead.

"Idaho was the first state in the nation, earlier this year, to pass a law called 'The Fairness in Women's Sports Act,'" she reports. "What that does is it ensures that only biological females can play in female sports at the high school and college levels."

While the American Civil Liberties Union is trying to get boys back in the arena competing against girls, the Family Policy Alliance has launched the "Save Girls' Sports" campaign to create national awareness of the problem. A petition drive is part of the effort, and the week of June 21st has been set aside as "Save Girls' Sports Week."
