The Olympics and Paralympics will not allow transgendered women to compete against biological women, but you still may see transgenders at these competitions nonetheless.

To spare you all the dry details and give you a quick summary of the decision, the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee (USOPC) has encouraged individual sports to consider creating an “Open” category for transgender athletes to still have an avenue to compete at this level. This comes after the committee realized that biological males have a competitive advantage over females even after taking hormone suppression treatment (who would have thought?).

The British Triathlon Federation and World Aquatics are already working on how to make this a reality in their respective sports.

“I think it’s important to make sure that we have a voice in this conversation in order to support our athletes, all of our athletes, in this space,” Nitra Rucker, the USOPC’s director of diversity, equity and inclusion, said.

While it is encouraging to see that more and more leagues are realizing that males and females competing in the same division is a bad idea, the fact that transgenderism is still being encouraged by actions like this is disheartening.

Nothing good comes from the transgender ideology and those who attempt to change their physical makeup and “gender identity” always regret it. Whether or not sports offer an “Open” category for these people does not change the hearts of people, it nonetheless enables the problem to continue, and that’s not a good thing.
