A case has been brought to the Arizona district court on behalf of two transgender girls (ages 11 and 15) that contests the state law that prohibits them from participating in girls’ sports at school. They state that they will not undergo male puberty, so they are similarly situated with other girls and should not be prohibited from participation. The Plaintiffs also contend that the state law is in violation of Title IX – the federal law that prohibits discrimination in educational programs based on sex. The Plaintiffs are asking the court to declare that the state statute forbidding their participation is unenforceable and unconstitutional.
