2020 candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren came out Thursday against a proposed bill in Arizona that would limit girls’ sports to biological females.
Republican state Rep. Nancy Barto’s proposed bill would bar biologically male athletes who identify as transgender girls from competing in girls’ sports. The bill comes as biological males who identify as transgender have racked up victories in girls’ and women’s sports.
“Trans athletes are not a threat,” Warren wrote on Twitter Thursday. “We need to protect trans kids — and all LGBTQ+ kids — and ensure they feel safe and welcomed at school.”
“I urge the Arizona legislature to reject this cruel bill,” the Massachusetts senator added.

Every Democratic presidential frontrunner supports the Equality Act, which would force public schools to expand female athletic teams to include biological males who identify as transgender girls.
