A well-known and groundbreaking gay athlete has spoken out about transgenderism and sports — and her comments don’t fit the LGBT narrative.
Martina Navratilova, a professional tennis player who came out as a lesbian in 1981, caused a stir in December when she spoke out against biological men competing as women. She deleted those tweets and pledged to study the issue. But in a Feb. 17 article for The Sunday Times, she says her beliefs have only “strengthened” and that it is unfair for biological men to compete as women in sports. Navratilova was an 18-time Grand Slam winner
“To put the argument at its most basic: a man can decide to be female, take hormones if required by whatever sporting organisation is concerned, win everything in sight and perhaps earn a small fortune, and then reverse his decision and go back to making babies if he so desires,” she wrote. “It’s insane and it’s cheating. I am happy to address a transgender woman in whatever form she prefers, but I would not be happy to compete against her. It would not be fair.”
In Connecticut, biological males have won state championships in girls’ track and field. Elsewhere, a biological male who completes as a female won a cycling world championship. That transgender woman, Rachel McKinnon, was required to lower testosterone levels before competing.
Navratilova, though, says men who compete as women have life-long natural advantages even if they do lower their testosterone levels.
