Republican lawmakers in five states have drafted measures in recent weeks to stop biological males who identify as females from competing in women's sports: New Hampshire, Washington, Georgia, Tennessee, and Missouri.

Legislators say that allowing transgender competitors in female sports is unfair to girls, since biological males have natural physical advantages over biological females, including differences in muscle mass, bone strength, lung capacity, and heart size.

? Alliance Defending Freedom filed a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education last year on behalf of three female high school athletes claiming that it is lawfully unfair for Connecticut to allow biological males to compete against girls in school sports.
