Q35: Has The WSPWG Taken A Position On The State Legislative Efforts To Ban Transgirls From Being On Girls’ School Sports Teams And Competing In Girls’ Events Or To Categorically Include Males Who Identify As Transgender On Girls’ Teams?

A35: Yes. We have publicly opposed these efforts and sought to work with like-minded state legislators of both parties toward law that would assure the accommodation of males who identify as transgender in girls’ sport in ways that are not female category defeating. We must develop equitable and inclusive accommodations for males who identify as women; gender-fluid athletes; and nonbinary athletes, so long as those accommodations do not diminish females’ sport opportunities or financial rewards, nor females’ right to fair, safe, sex-separated sports experiences. Also, we want to be sure opportunities for females who identify as transgender are similarly accommodated in boys’ sport.
