No

Yes

Why? Who is it hurting?

@98XH2BPRepublican  from Nebraska commented…3 days

IT IS HURTING ALL THE ATHLETES FEMALE ATHLETES THAT HAVE TRAINED SO HARD. BOYS ARE NATURALLY STRONGER AND FASTER, SO IT IS NOT FAIR AT ALL FOR THEM TO DOMINATE THE FEMALE SPORTS. THEY ARE SWITCHING THEIR GENDER TO WIN BECAUSE THEY WERE NOT FAST ENOUGH IN THERE OWN GENDER’S GROUP.

No, athletes should compete based on the biological sex that is listed on their birth certificate

@jsimicConstitution from Texas agreed…2mos

Yes, but only if their hormone levels are equivalent to those in the gender category in which they compete

@94Z37B4 from North Carolina answered…5mos

@8HYGV9Y from Utah answered…2yrs

They can compete but only against other trans athletes

@8Z4DT44 from California disagreed…12mos

That would be assuming there was even enough trans people that want to participate to form a team. While it would be ideal, it doesn't make it realistic.

@8S9THXZRepublican from Kansas answered…2yrs

No, transgender athletes should have their own category because of the hormonal and physiological differences

@8SKKHSB from Oregon disagreed…2yrs

Yes

Transgender people aren't necessarily hormonal or physiologically distinct. Not all trans people medically transition. Furthermore, intersex people may identify as their assigned gender but still require hormone therapy, making them cisgender people on HRT (it's more common than you might expect, many cis men and cis women have hormonal problems that require medical treatment or surgery). Trans people and cis people aren't really all that different. That you think they are reveals your transphobia.

Gender based sports divisions should be replaced by skill based sport divisions

@98YY5HK from Texas answered…1 day

No, transgender individuals should compete against other transgender individuals.

@98YNSS3 from Alabama answered…1 day

Yes, but sports competitions should be decided on skill/ability rather than gender.

@98YMDBKProgressive from Rhode Island answered…1 day

Yes, but only if they have fully transitioned and are clearly not at a large advantage due to the fact that they were a male before transitioning.

@98YKXQD from Massachusetts answered…1 day

Not until science shows that the hormone levels enable a level playing field.

@98YJK6B from Texas answered…2 days

@98YHWGH from Idaho answered…2 days

Yes, as long as they have started hormone treatment and are surgically transitioning

@98VFTPHDemocrat from Ohio answered…2 days

@98Y5YM4 from Iowa answered…2 days

Transgender athletes should only be allowed to compete against other transgender athletes since males have different genetics than females.

@98Y5JTDSocialist from Iowa answered…2 days

Yes, hormone levels differ in every person, they should not affect if someone is able to play or not.

@98XWP7Z from Indiana answered…3 days

@98XVFHC from Maine answered…3 days

Yes, but only if their hormones and body is equivalent to their competition. So they transitioned before puberty hit for males.

@98XTM99 from Texas answered…3 days

@98XTL23 from Texas answered…3 days

Yes, but i prefer for all athletes to compete based on physical ability regardless of gender

@98XRH88 from Michigan answered…3 days

No, transgender people give up their options to be athletes because they can stop people from competing against their own biological sex

@98XQ89Qfrom Maine  answered…3 days

Yes, but only trans men,who objectively, will usually have a disadvantage compared to cis men. The opposite is true for trans women.

@98X792M from Pennsylvania answered…4 days

@98X5R5KSocialist from California answered…4 days

I would leave this issue up to trans people alone to decide what is the correct course of action.

@98X22GK from Michigan answered…5 days

No, but transgender and female athletes should be allowed to compete against male athletes if they so chose to.

@98WSWBYIndependent from New York answered…6 days

yes, if levels are equivalent and start with sports like soccer and tennis, and intramurals in schools.

@98WMC57 from Pennsylvania answered…6 days

no, but lets make a new section called the transgender section in order to make less sexist

@98W7CKQ from New York answered…1wk

Those who have or have had male levels of testosterone should compete against males. Other than this, gender identity can be the dividing line

@98W2G3T from Texas answered…1wk

Sports should be divided up by 2 levels of physical capability rather than gender

@98VWLT7Republican from Michigan answered…1wk

Transgender athletes should not be allowed to compete in sports, since they have to take hormones artificially and can not produce them naturally they are technically the same gender

@98VWV8CWomen’s Equality from Maryland answered…1wk

Transgender athletes should compete with other transgender athletes in order

This should be determined by Sports researchers and science, not made political.

@98TH4DV from California answered…1wk

@98TYPVB from California answered…1wk

Yes, in non combat/strength based sports only if their hormone levels are equivalent to their gender category. Never in combat/ violent sports.

@98TTSNB from California answered…1wk

The problem is that it is just not fair. I think there should be a whole different category. I don't really know though, it's a difficult situation
