It is one of the central issues in the culture war of American conservatives: Several US states have introduced laws in recent weeks to prohibit trans women and girls from competing against biological women and girls in sports competitions. Now trans woman and activist Caitlyn Jenner has also commented on it.
“It’s a question of fairness,” said the 71-year-old when asked about it in a parking lot to the TMZ website. That’s why I’m against organic boys who are trans being allowed to compete in girls’ sports at school.” This is “just not fair,” Jenner said.
She then took to Twitter, shared the article about herself and wrote: “I didn’t expect to be asked this question when I got my coffee on Saturday morning, but I stand by what I said. It’s about fairness, and we have to protect girls’ sports in our schools.”
