In Connecticut, three female track and field athletes filed a Title IX complaint arguing they were prevented from top finishes and potential college scholarships by two transgender sprinters.
It is a scientific fact that a biological male who goes through puberty has a significant physical advantage in sports when compared to a female and “the muscular advantage enjoyed by transgender women is only minimally reduced when testosterone is suppressed. ”
The U.S. Education Department’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR) agreed with the female runners. The OCR ruled in May the physical advantage enjoyed by the two transgender runners had allowed them to win a combined 15 girls state indoor or outdoor championship races since 2017. The Office threatened to halt funding for Connecticut school districts that permitted biologically male runners who identify as female to compete in girls sports.
In his first day in office, GOP Pres. Joe Biden effectively rescinded the OCR’s ruling.
