Conservative groups in Minnesota, including misleadingly named "Child Protection League," have spouted complete and utter crap about a new proposed transgender student-athlete policy from the Minnesota State High School League. The CPL has even taken out a full page transphobic ad in a major state newspaper.
The full page many have far too kindly called a "political advertisement" was published in the Star Tribune. It features a picture of an open shower room with the big, bolded message: "A male wants to shower beside your 14-year-old daughter. Are YOU okay with that?" Below that, it supposedly gives a list of what proposed parts of the draft language mean. Although the advertisement is misleading at the very least, and completely indefensible at the worst, it certainly is reminiscent of responses to every single attempt to accommodate transgender individuals in the past. Despite the fact the so-called "threat" from transgender individuals has been throughly debunked over and over again.
