New York Attorney General Letitia James demands Nassau County to stop protecting girls’ sports from transgenderism, citing violation of anti-discrimination laws.

Nassau County Executive Bruce Blakeman issued an order prohibiting opposite biological sexes from competing in county-run sports facilities to safeguard women’s sports integrity.

“The Order’s immediate effect is to force sports leagues to make an impossible choice: discriminate against transgender women and girls, in violation of New York law, or find somewhere else to play,” a cease-and-desist letter read.

AG James threatened legal action if the order isn’t rescinded, while Blakeman defends it as necessary for fairness in women’s athletics.

“The law is clear: you can’t discriminate against a person because of their gender identity or expression,” AG James wrote on X.

“I’m demanding @NassauExec immediately rescind his transphobic and illegal order within 5 days, or I will not hesitate to take decisive legal action,” James added.

“My [executive order] stops the bullying of women and girls by transgender males who have many outlets to compete without putting the safety and security of females in danger,” Blakeman wrote.

“In Nassau we will continue to fight for females’ right to be safe, secure, and have a level playing field to compete,” Blakeman said.

“Women and Girls hard work, on-field achievements, and athletic futures deserve to be fostered, nurtured, and celebrated,” Blakeman said.
