Remember this from the KBJ hearing?
SEN. BLACKBURN: “Can you provide a definition of the word ‘woman’?”
JACKSON: “No, I can’t”

Some “GOP” Reps in New Hampshire also don’t want to talk about the physical differences between men and women, that these differences are obvious and readily articulable, and that there are contexts where we should take those differences into account. More specifically, HB 1180 would have clarified that the State’s anti-discrimination statute does not require schools to allow boys who self-identify as female to compete in girls’ sports.
In other words, HB 1180 would simply have preserved the option of a “level playing field.” Girls would not have to compete against boys. In other words, HB 1180 recognizes that when boys and girls mature they become physically different and these differences give boys a tremendous competitive advantage over girls … for example, NCAA swimmer Lia Thomas was ranked #442 competing as a male swimmer, but is ranked #1 competing as a female.
But the following “GOP” Reps voted to kill HB 1180:
Joe Alexander, Cody Belanger, Kevin Craig, Joseph Depalma, Brodie Deshaies, Ned Gordon, John Graham, Juliet Harvey-Bolia, Claire Rouillard, Robert Theberge, Dennis Thompson, Karen Umberger, Nick White, and Dan Wolf.
