“The Iowa City Community School District is strongly opposed to the state legislation preventing trans athletes from participating in high school, and in some cases, college and elementary school sports,” the district wrote on Twitter.

What immediately must be recognized is the district either doesn’t understand the bill or is intentionally misrepresenting it. Transgender athletes are allowed to play sports, they are simply required to compete in sports based on their biological sex listed on their birth certificate.
