Caitlyn Jenner‘s take on banning trans girls from competing in girls’ sports is unfounded and unjust … so says Dr. Veronica Ivy whose view is the polar opposite.
Veronica, a trans activist, athlete and associate professor of philosophy at the College of Charleston, appeared Monday on “TMZ Live” and said there’s no evidence trans girls perform better in sports than cisgender girls.
Dr. Ivy says the whole thing about biologically-born boys having a competitive advantage over biologically-born girls has been disproven … she says there is no evidence normal testosterone levels have any impact on performance.
The Doc does say there is undeniably a difference in performance between biologically-born boys and girls in the world of sports, but she says the reason is unknown … it’s either biological, sociological or a combination of both. She goes on to say the data that’s available actually doesn’t show trans girls have any real advantage over cisgender girls, but until there’s proof to the contrary the default should be inclusion rather than exclusion.
Dr. Ivy points out, Caitlyn had a different take last year … when she told the Outsports podcast “The Trans Sporter Room,” “I think every trans person, if they’re into athletics, should have an opportunity to compete and to improve themselves.”
