No, athletes should compete based on the biological sex that is listed on their birth certificate

@ISIDEWITHDiscuss this answer...4yrs

Yes, but only if their hormone levels are equivalent to those in the gender category in which they compete

@984WR86from North Carolina  answered…1 day

No. Create a league for transgender athletes & let them compete there.

@97Z6ZZ9Liberalfrom British Columbia  answered…1wk

Yes, if they started hormone replacement earlier in life during puberty

@97WY95Pfrom Ontario  answered…2wks

I think it's okay for transgender participants to compete in beauty pageants and such but when it comes to sports, I believe they shouldn't.

@97TX4J6Communistfrom Alberta  answered…2wks

if they do as many tests as needed in order to prove they are of equal strength only to the opponents, a trans man would have to be as weak as the girls to compete but on the other hand transwomen can give give it their "best" shot with the dudes if they want.

@97T4JZCConservativefrom Ontario  answered…2wks

Allow women's sport to be for strictly biological women, and any other sporting league or event to be for ANYBODY who can compete, whether cis or trans

@97QMWCBfrom Manitoba  answered…3wks

Only so long as the competitors no that they are competing against someone who is a different sex

@97Q8YRTLiberalfrom Nova Scotia  answered…3wks

Leave it to the experts to determine if such a decision could constitute an unfair advantage or disadvantage for the athlete and debate whether restraining an athlete from competing with their chosen gender could be unconstitutional - if so either banning domestic sports teams that divide us based on gender or preventing transgender athletes from competing where the outcome would be unfair and not unconstitutional.

@97BCWQBfrom Ontario  answered…4wks

Yes, but only for certain sports. Largely excluding 'violent' sports like boxing or football.

@9762PXYfrom Alberta  answered…1mo

There should be a new division specific to the Trans community, to avoid issues.

@96WMJ65from Manitoba  answered…1mo

They should have their own category, example Trans female and Trans male

@96CJFM3New Democraticfrom British Columbia  answered…2mos

Categorization should be based on hormone level exclusively and gender should be irrelevant.

@96BF4HRfrom New Brunswick  answered…2mos

Transgender people should compete against other transgender people.

@965XVJLfrom Ontario  answered…2mos

Yes, as sports should be dictated by weight class/other metrics as opposed to gender in order to be more inclusive.

@95XKCJXfrom Ontario  answered…2mos

@892HFDV from Minnesota answered…2mos

@95TJW43from Saskatchewan  answered…2mos

Yes by adding a third sports category which is any gender, and segmented by body size

@95LSVQVfrom Ontario  answered…2mos

Yes, but only if their hormone levels are equivalent to those they are competing with

@95K3BRJfrom Manitoba  answered…3mos

Transgender athletes should not be allowed to compete in competitions restricted to a single sex, but athletic competitions inclusive to everyone should by encouraged.

@95J9PCRfrom Ontario  answered…3mos

Yes, and gender categories in athletics should be eliminated wherever possible.

@95HN6PNfrom Alberta  answered…3mos

Let's create a co-ed or non-binary divison.. anyone who wants to compete can if they qualify regardless of gender. Otherwise keep it to the biological sex.

@94QZMZ4New Democraticfrom Alberta  answered…3mos

Transgender women (Male to female) should not be able to compete in womens athletics

@94BCJHRConservativefrom British Columbia  answered…4mos

@7PTCG38 from Wisconsin answered…4mos

No, a separate category should be created in which transgender athletes compete against other transgender athletes of their current sex

@9443TCHfrom British Columbia  answered…4mos

This is a loaded and offensive question as it assumes that sex is assigned at birth. No one's sex is ever "assigned", it is determined at conception. It would be more inclusive to rephrase the question so that all can answer it.

@8CDY44Q from Ohio answered…4mos

No, there should be separate categories of competition for transgender athletes.

@9425J2G from Florida answered…4mos

A professional sport is played by professionals. It should not have any part in politics what so ever and should be left to the respected sports companies.

@93VWQKP from Nevada answered…4mos

No, but allow transgender athletes to compete in their own sections just for trans-men and trans-women

@93ZP8QG from North Carolina answered…4mos

Yes, but only for those participating in non-professional sports and whose hormone levels are equivalent to those in the gender category in which they compete. I believe that transgender women should not be allowed to compete on gender-based teams in high-stakes competitions such as the Olympics. According to current research, even after undergoing hormone therapy, trans women retain an advantage in muscle mass and strength. These long-term studies clearly show that transgender women would have a competitive advantage when participating in the female category of sport.

@363HKGJ answered…4mos

No, but this should be up to sports organizations to enforce, not the government

@8XTK7FN from Massachusetts answered…5mos

This question isn't relevant to political beliefs. Professional sports standards are established by the private institutions that manage them

@558YLXV answered…5mos

Individual athletic organizations should come up with their own rules on how to allow transgender athletes to participate without giving them an unfair advantage/disadvantage. The governing bodies should also have oversight committees to ensure no individual or class of athlete is unfairly burdened by these rules or policies.

@8PWLPJSfrom British Columbia  answered…5mos

No, they should compete in races that are dedicated to transgender people, so it's absolutely fair.

@93TPNRX from Washington answered…5mos

@93T2SFPfrom Newfoundland  answered…5mos

it should be up to the competition's organizers and the participants can choose wither or not to participate. but In the case of the Olympics, the organizers should either have two separate category's or hold a vote to decide.

@93S3WL7from Ontario  answered…5mos

It really does not matter, and it matters about what their personal choice is and what they think they can do.

@93RRRV3from Ontario  answered…5mos

The system needs to be changed in general where they're categorized by ability and hormones kind of like weight lifting.
