Jenner backs transgender athlete ban for girls’ sports in schools
Politico–Caitlyn Jenner, a Republican candidate for California governor, said in a new interview that female transgender athletes should be barred from competing on all-girls school sports teams.
“This is a question of fairness,” Jenner told TMZ on Saturday. “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.”
The remarks from Jenner — one of the most high-profile transgender Americans and a former Olympic gold medal-winning decathlete — reflect the efforts of several state legislatures to restrict transgender women and girls from participation in high school and college sports.
