Sen. Tommy Tuberville said Thursday that some fellow Senate Republicans were against his "Protection of Women and Girls in Sports Act," drafted to prevent biological men from competing in women's sports. 

"We know the Democrats aren't gonna vote for it, but I actually had a couple of Republicans who voted against me on this," Tuberville said at the annual CPAC event outside of Washington, D.C., in suburban Maryland. "I went to them and asked, 'Don't you have a daughter? Don't you have granddaughters? I mean, what planet are you coming from?'"

Tuberville introduced the bill last year, and said Thursday that it is unfair and wrong for biological men to compete against biological women in girls' sports. 

The legislation is still in the first stage of the legislative process. 

He also criticized USA Boxing for its new policy that allows boxers who transition from male to female to compete in the female category, according to The New York Post.

"Someone's gonna get hurt," the Alabama senator said.

He also said that there's "zero common sense in the clown world."
