Caitlyn Jenner, a transgender "female" who used to be Bruce Jenner -- an Olympic Gold Medal decathlon winner and one of the most famous athletes in the world -- said that he opposes "biological boys" who are transgender females competing in girls' sports in school because "it just isn't fair."
On Saturday, a TMZ reporter caught up with Caitlyn Jenner in a parking lot and asked, "Hi Caitlyn, there's legislation in various states to ban biological boys, who are trans, from playing in girls' sports in school. What's your opinion on that?"
Jenner said, "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," said Jenner. "And we have to protect girls' sports in our schools."
Jenner's views echo those of tennis legend Martina Navratilova, who said in 2019, “It’s insane and it’s cheating. I am happy to address a transgender woman in whatever form she prefers, but I would not be happy to compete against her. It would not be fair.”
In a commentary for the Washington Post, 18-time Grand Slam winner Martina Navratilova, Duke Law School professor and former elite track athlete Doriane Coleman, and four-time Olympic Gold Medalist Sanya Richards-Ross said, "The evidence is unequivocal that starting in puberty, in every sport except sailing, shooting and riding, there will always be significant numbers of boys and men who would beat the best girls and women in head-to-head competition. Claims to the contrary are simply a denial of science."
"Team USA sprinter Allyson Felix has the most World Championship medals in history, male or female, and is tied with Usain Bolt for the most World Championship golds," the three top athletes wrote. "Her lifetime best in the 400 meters is 49.26 seconds. In 2018 alone, 275 high school boys ran faster on 783 occasions.
"The sex differential is even more pronounced in sports and events involving jumping. Team USA’s Vashti Cunningham has the American record for high school girls in the high jump at 6 feet, 4½ inches. Last year just in California, 50 high school boys jumped higher. The sex differential isn’t the result of boys and men having a male gender identity, more resources, better training or superior discipline. It’s because they have androgenized bodies."
Several states have passed legislation that would prohibit transgender females (biological boys) from competing in girls' sports. These include Idaho, Mississippi, Arkansas, West Virginia, and Alabama.
