On Thursday, the State Legislature of Kansas passed legislation according to which a “biological human female” can only be a woman.
This move will grant more protection and rights to biological women across Kansas.

Senate Bill 180, labeled as “Women’s Bill of Rights”, states that a biological woman is someone “whose biological reproductive system is developed to produce ova” and a male is described as someone whose reproductive system “is developed to fertilize the ova of a female.”
The legislation passed with a 26-10 vote in the state Senate.
GOP Senator Renee Erickson introduced the bill. While talking with the Washington Times, she declared:
“This bill does not create any new rights or entitlements. It simply codifies the definition of sex as biological male and female in existing statutes and laws.”
“There are legitimate reasons to distinguish between the sexes with respect to prisons, domestic violence shelters, rape crisis centers and other areas where safety and privacy are needed.”
The legislation will now make its way to the GOP-controlled Kansas House of Representatives and is expected to pass.
The bill will then head to the office of the Democratic Governor of Kansas Laura Kelly. It is expected that Kelly will reject the legislation as she has already vetoed two legislations that prohibit biological males from participating in women’s sports.
If the House manages to pass the legislation through a veto-proof majority, the bill will not require the signatures of the governor to become law.
The legislation is already receiving backlash from several Senate Democrats.
Senator Pat Pettey argued:
“I think this is poor legislation, unnecessary, and does nothing to talk about women’s rights,”
“As we heard in committee, it might be better if we were talking about the things that would help women’s rights, and that would be equity in pay, access to child care, and considering our human rights being balanced between men and women.”
