Everyone has equal rights to live in this world. It should not be discriminated by gender or skin tone, or the wealthiest. If so, someone may differentiate by an unfair factor, and it’s good to point it and speak about it.
Caitlyn Jenner, one who won the Olympic gold medal for the USA in 1976 and also the candidate for the California governor stand, opposes trans girls participating in women’s sports. She responded to a question raised by reports about her opinion on the hot-button issue of trans athletes as “This is a question of fairness,” 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.”
Dr. Veronica Ivy, a trans activist, athlete, and associate professor of philosophy at the College of Charleston, spoke about trans girls who wish and anticipate participating in sports. Though the world seems unfair for trans girls, there is still no data to prove that transgender girls perform better in sports than their cisgender peers. So until the data proves trans girls are getting impact on performance due to testosterone levels inside the body, banning them from competing in girls’ sports is unfair and unjust.
She explained this matter on TMZ live as ‘’the truth is; we don’t know [what makes men better at sports compared to women]. But we do know now, finally, after all these years, that it isn’t as simple as natural testosterone. That is not the reason. There are elite world championship level men with natural testosterone below the women’s average, and they’re competing at no disadvantage to men with 100 times as much testosterone. So there are certainly, maybe, some biological reasons for men, on average, being bigger, stronger, faster than women, but we do know that there are also social reasons.’’
Moreover, she believes that every trans person should have an opportunity to compete and improve themselves in sports. So what do you think?
