yes. Why are we holding them back? That is not okay we need to let them be who they want to be but also let them know what might happen. We need to give them that option.

No, let's say Lebron James becomes transgender and plays in the WNBA, who do you think is better? Non-transgender athletes, or Lebron James as a transgender?

It’s up to the organization that’s running the competition, not the government

See I can see why people would want this to be allowed and why people would not want this. Because the people who transition want the same opportunity but then at the same time men and women are completely genetically different.

transgender athletes should only be able to compete in athletic events when their hormone levels are deemed appropriate. that being said it also depends on when the athlete decided to take hormones because if they are a fully developed and matured then the hormones will have little affect, especially on trans-women (men who transitioned to women). for this reason there would also be different regulations between trans-men and trans-women as well as if the athlete wishes to de-transition. ultimately there needs to be regulations for all levels of sport to make it a fair competition.

@9GQPJZZLibertarian from Texas answered…1yr

Yes, only against the gender that is listed on their birth certificate.

@9GQ4MJDWorking Family from Missouri answered…1yr

Transgender athletes should be allowed to compete on gender specific teams at the discretion of the sports organization based on hormone levels/physical attributes/etc. (to make sure there is no unfair advantage), but be given the legal right to play on any co-ed/non gender specific team as they so choose.

@9GPPKZSConstitution from Texas answered…1yr

Yes, because it's the best example of showing that males are physically better than women at sports and is the best advertisement against this societal sickness.

@9GPNX7PWorking Family from Kansas answered…1yr

Yes, but only against other transgender athletes to maintain the integrity of the sport.

@9GPNMTDSocialist from Indiana answered…1yr

Yes, particularly if the only separation between the athletes is simply a gender issue. However, due to the fact that in a lot of athletic competitions there are things like weight classes and regulations on hormone levels, it becomes more complicated. In many ways this is a more complex issue that deserves more thought and investigation. But the answer should be towards better inclusion and respect for transgender athletes.

@9GPCVQMGreen from Illinois answered…1yr

Yes, transgender athletes should be able to compete with other transgender athletes when gender based differences might affect performance.

No because men are genetically built different with more muscle mass

@Henry-CapoteWomen’s Equality from Florida answered…1yr

Yes, they can compete in athletic events but they should be in their own categories (e.g. trans men, trans women would be each their own category).

@9GNQ42CSocialist from Washington answered…1yr

yes, and athletic events should not be boy v girl. It should be based on hormone levels regardless of gender expression and identity. Because even cis men and women have varying amounts of testosterone.

@9GNH4CPVeteran from Michigan answered…1yr

There should be some sort of separate athletic category for trans people, such as women, men, trans women, trans men.

@9GMM2B6Transhumanist from Missouri answered…1yr

They should only be allowed to compete with other transgender persons of similar hormone levels as the gender they identify as.

Yes, but... Perhaps we need a 3rd locker room for transgender, or we need private areas in all locker rooms. Or maybe the answer is yes, after they have fully transitioned?

@9GDCPTTPeace and Freedom from Idaho answered…1yr

No, but there should be a new category added for transgender athletes.

@9GCW78TPeace and Freedom from Illinois answered…1yr

Yes, and if the person is not on hormones we should help them gain access to these.
