Transsexuals banned from women’s sports

The new policy will only apply to women's sports.

The North American National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) has decided to allow only biological females to compete in women’s sports.

It is the first national collegiate organization to make the change, citing its “responsibility to create fairness and competition”.

The organization approved the policy in a 20-0 vote on Monday, after conducting a survey in December that showed widespread support for such a change.

– We know there are a lot of different opinions out there, NAIA president Jim Carr told CBS Sports:

– For us, we believed our first responsibility was to create fairness and competition in the NAIA.

“Men’s sports open to all”

The collegiate organization is apparently the first in the United States to require female athletes to compete according to the sex they were assigned at birth. However, the policy only applies to women’s sports, not men’s sports. In other words, transsexuals who were born female can participate in men’s sports.

– It’s important to know that the male sports are open to anyone, says Carr.

The policy only applies to competitions, not team activities such as practices.
