The Inclusion of Transgender Athletes
"Trans folks’ participation in sports is a fiercely debated topic. Though trans people face discrimination in most arenas, sports seems to be the most difficult one, especially when folks attempt to bring—usually unsubstantiated—”scientific“ claims into the discussions.
In 2021, at least 70 anti-trans sports bills were proposed in more than half (30) of the U.S. states. Most of the bills targeted trans girls, with the aim of banning trans girls from competing in girls’ sport."
