I've tried thinking about this issue from a lot of different angles.
But I do think that trans girls have an advantage that is unfair.
I think I would feel that way if I was a parent of a trans girl too. Like I would want what is best for my child, but in my heart and deep down I would know that it would be unfair. That's why this is so hard for me to get behind.
Here is what I think:
Elite athletes and NCAA athletes should have strict rules around inclusion of trans and DSD women and that should be based in actual research that they should do. I agree with Rojo it is not a human right to compete in elite athletics.
children should compete with whatever gender they identify in. We already put way too much emphasis on youth sports. Chill out, an 8 year old's travel soccer game is not the World Cup. Let kids be kids, and be themselves.
High School is where it gets tricky. But I think it's fair at this point to insist on a year of HRT for trans girls to compete in state championship meets. But invitationals and other meets should be fine for them to compete in.
+1 I too have this same opinion . I'm a cis woman but if i were trans, i would no more feel like i won fair and square than if i were taking PEDs.
Western States put something a policy in place. Any other races doing this?
