Texas Transgender Bill: What Do You Think?

A lot has happened for transgender athletes this week. In a six-day period, a bill passed through the Texas House, Senate, and Governor’s desk which would prevent transgender athletes from competing on the gendered team with which they identity. Instead, the bill will require that athletes in ALL public schools, elementary through college, to compete on the team that matches their assigned sex at birth.

Gender and sex are two different things – this bill doesn’t require transgender athletes to act like they are the opposite gender, only to compete with the opposite gender on where a team they probably feel out of place… So, is this fair?

Transgender men competing on a women’s team may be given an advantage due to (legally) taking testosterone.
On the flipside, if this law weren’t passed, transgender women competing on a women’s team would be given an advantage due to the masculine build they would’ve attainted prior to their transition.

Do you agree with the Texas law that mandates transgender athletes to compete in the gender that they are born with? Vote on our Instagram @lrtsports

  1. Yes! Because it’s unfair physically. 
  2. No! Transgender athletes should be able to compete on whichever team they identify and feel comfortable with. 
  3. I don’t really care.
