Oklahoma Requires 'Biological Sex Affidavit' for All Student-Athletes

Us Ok

After banning transgender girls and women from competing in female sports, the state of Oklahoma will now require students from kindergarten to college to complete "biological sex affidavits" to compete in school sports. 

In Oklahoma, transgender athletes are required to compete with teams associated with their sex assigned at birth if they want to compete in athletics in Oklahoma. 

An actual affidavit form for Woodall Public Schools was posted to social media.


"This is totalitarianism," Erin Matson, who posted the affidavit wrote. "It is the white nationalist agenda. The anti-LGBTQ agenda. The anti-abortion agenda. It is all the same agenda."

According to NBC News, Oklahoma was the 13th state to enact a bill banning transgender athletes from competing in sports based on their gender identity. Since then, five additional state have enacted similar laws. 

Oklahoma is the only state the currently requires an affidavit confirming a student's gender assigned at birth.
