trangender females are a threat to female sport
unfair to have a trans woman competing in female sport with a biologically male body.
the Olympic committee charter say " the practice of sport is a human right"
male hormones in transgender women give them a boost
transgender women take the female hormone oestrogen and testosterone blockers before having any surgery and also continue to take oestrogen after the transition
there are set limits with how much testosterone transgender women can have in their body to compete
this is something that is currently being reviewed
in a recent poll of 1,000 women, 80% said that trans women should have the same rights as them
biological females have beaten transgender females on numerous occasions including wagner-assali a biologically female cyclist, beating Rachel mckinnon, a transgeder woman cyclist 10/12 times they veresed
in terms of Olympic sports, there have only been two trans women who have been world champions, and a trans women has never received a gold medal
biological men can count on physiological advantages which on average make the bigger, faster, and stronger
after the transition, muscle mass, strength, and speed are all considerably decreased
Nicola Williams, of fair play for women believes that transgender women should not compete in female only sport until further research is gathered
transgender females at this point in time are able to compete in many female only competitive sports
Hannah mouncey, a transgender women who played girls Australian rules was banned in 2017 from playing because of her huge size difference
in defence, mouncey said "being big and heavy isn't necessarily an advantage in a game that has such an emphasis on endurance and speed
she says that the female players are quicker than her and are able to recover quicker because of her frame
she admits to the statistic that biological men are 8-12% stronger than biological females
she says that we have to recognise that the advantage between men and woman is far smaller than that of the weakest and strongest female and the smallest and tallest woman
trans women have been allowed to compete in the Olympics since 2004
all the criticism claims are without foundation according to Rachel McKinnon, a transgender woman who competes in women's cycling
she says that her power output was "dead centre average for women"
most of the outraged people at mckinnons achievements aren't even interested in female sport but just using it as an excuse to have a go at transgender women
in some sports, being a transgender woman can be a disadvantage and level out the playing field
in sports such as uphill cycling, you want to be the lightest, but still pack some power, having a larger frame means carrying extra weight in comparison to the females they are up against
in some sports such as: boxing, weightlifting, and judo, there are weight classes so there is a reasonably even playing field regardless.
many say that allowing trans women to play women's sport will scare of biological woman
stats say that there is no evidence that participation drops among biological females when a trans women is present
lots also say that participation tends to improve when you make a sporting place more inclusive
