  1. What’s next? Dwarfs in the NBA? Grown men on children’s teams? Sports is inherently not inclusive – that’s kind of the whole point of sports. Extraordinary people excelling within arbitrary confines/rules. This isn’t a rights issue.

  2. This is such a sticky, difficult issue. Of course trans people should be included, but at the same if there is a biological advantage in sports to being a trans woman, it is not fair to the other non-trans women. Is there a solution that can be inclusive and fair?

  3. Apparently there are only about 40 trans women trying to compete in traditional women’s sporting competitions throughout the USA, maybe it is not as big a problem as this has been made to appear, it is only competition after all. I could be wrong but there certainly isn’t a lot of evidence to say this is such a huge inequity waiting to happen, especially in the scheme of things?
    I guess it could be put as a struggle between individual achievement and the betterment of society for all, I am prepared to be proved wrong but it hasn’t happened yet, I guess listening to generally entitled people complaining about a small decrease in their chance of extra privilege just isn’t doing it for me.
    But in the end is there ever a fair playing field really.

  4. Isn’t there co-ed divisions? Women have worked so hard for the opportunity to compete. I feel for trans struggle but why are we destroying women’s opportunities? How is it fair that a bionic woman with inherent advantages get to compete against biological women? This is why the division in sports. Women can not compete with a male. Male genetic makeup gives them an advantage.

  5. I love the amount of time, effort, and money being used to block 0.6% of the population. I would guess half of that population (at least) are over 18. So in fact, these laws probably block 0.3% of the population in total, but how many trans kids even do sports? The republicans are more concerned about laws impacting less than 0.3% of the population than worrying about things like income inequality, climate change, and COVID. You know, things that actually affect most of the population in the US.

  6. This is ridiculous, as long as the transgirls take hormones then they do not have an advantage. The benefits that men have is because of the testerone, which makes their bones denser and it easier to get muscle mass. Also a lot of transgender youth took puberty blockers when they were young so they never even gained the supposed advantage people are arguing.

  7. There is not any real people out there that actually support any of this all you have to do is read the comment section under any video under any main stream media outlet it doesn’t matter if it’s Republican or Democrat most of the time the people are against it

  8. If a girl is 4ft tall in middle school and a boy is 6ft…math tells us hell win no matter how hard she trains. He can be out.of shape and she can be perfect and he'll win based on stride length alone. It's unfair to women. If a male still has height and muscle mass advantages it's not fair. I want trans to have a league. If they black and white their should be grey. God made everything
