Caitlyn Jenner Surprises Woke Crowd With Her View On Trans & Female Sports
Jenner won an Olympic gold medal back in the 70s and in 2015 decided to identify as a woman. So you could say Jenner is practically an expert when it comes to transgender and sports. So when Jenner was asked about how she felt about transwomen in female sports, Jenner explained that it was by no means fair to biological females for biological males to compete with them.
“This is a question of fairness,” Jenner told TMZ when asked for reaction to legislation being passed in states across the U.S. that ban biological males from competing against girls in school sports. “That’s why I oppose biological boys who are trans competing in girls sports in school.”
“It just isn’t fair and we have to protect girls sports in our schools,” Jenner continued.
When asked if those beliefs were “delegitimizing” to a person’s gender identity, Jenner responded, “Have a good day.”
Jenner tweeted out a link to the interview, writing: “I didn’t expect to get asked this on my Saturday morning coffee run, but I’m clear about where I stand. It’s an issue of fairness and we need to protect girls’ sports in our schools.”
"It was Jenner’s first comment on the controversial issue since announcing her candidacy to replace Governor Gavin Newsom in a recall election.
Five states have passed laws or implemented executive orders this year limiting the ability of transgender youths to play sports or receive certain medical treatment. There’s been a vehement outcry from supporters of transgender rights."
"Ms. Jenner's views on trans athletes put her at odds with many activists in the trans community, who argue that legislation targeting trans children is dangerous and discriminatory."
Who would know better than a transwoman and former gold medal athlete? This is a major blow to the argument that it is discrimination to prevent transwomen from playing with biological women. But really this is a no-brainer, it's obvious that men, even identifying as women, should not compete in female sports.
