Caitlyn Jenner is one of the most famous trans women in the world. The former top athlete does not only use her reach for the benefit of many trans activists. Trans girls should not be allowed to participate in girls’ sports, she told the US portal “TMZ”.
It was a “question of fairness,” she said. “That’s why I refuse to allow biological boys to take part in girls’ sports at school. It’s just not fair and we have to protect girls’ sports in our schools. ”
You have to protect girls’ sport
On Twitter, the reality star, who is currently trying to fight for the governor’s post in California for the Republicans, affirmed his position: “I didn’t expect to be asked about it while getting coffee on Saturday morning, but I know where I’m standing, »writes Jenner. “It’s a question of fairness and we have to protect girls’ sport in our schools.”
Particularly exciting: In 2015, the parents of Kendall (25) and Kylie Jenner (23) received the ESPY Arthur Ashe Courage Award for their courage when coming out. During the acceptance speech, she said: “I also want to pay tribute to all the young trans athletes who can do sports the way they really are.” So that sounded very different back then than it does today.
Many US states prohibit trans girls from exercising with other girls
Caitlyn Jenner’s words, when Bruce Jenner won the decathlon Olympic gold medal in 1976, could carry a lot of weight. The background to the question is the current discussion in America about dealing with trans people in professional sports. Numerous US states, including Idaho, Tennessee, Mississippi, Arkansas, South Dakota and Florida have already banned trans girls from playing in girls’ teams. US President Joe Biden (78), who is working on an equality article to give trans people the same rights as everyone else, opposes this.
At the end of last year, the World Rugby Federation announced that it would exclude trans women from international women’s competitions. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) also wants to announce a rule for dealing with trans people after the Olympic Games in Tokyo this year.
Twitterers are disappointed
Caitlyn Jenner’s words cause great disappointment on Twitter. «How about the protection of trans boys and girls? Do you think a young trans girl is safe if she is forced to play in the boys’ team? », Says one user. Another writes: “It’s exciting to see that you are still transphobic when it comes to someone other than yourself. It must be great to be privileged.” Another twitterer writes: “What do you say to the athletes? Can’t participate in the gender you identify with? I’m sure you don’t want to play on the team of the opposite sex, but now you have no options! “
By the way, trans-actor Elliot Page (34) sees the situation very differently from Caitlyn Jenner. In an interview with Oprah Winfrey, 67, he recently said: “If you don’t allow trans children to participate in sports, children will die. It really is. ” (imh)
