Caitlyn Jenner believes it “just isn’t fair” that transgender girls participate in all-female sports teams.

The reality TV star told TMZ that it was a “question of fairness” when she was asked to give her opinion on the legislation in various US states “to ban biological boys who are trans from playing girls’ sports in school”. “It just isn’t fair, and we have to protect girls’ sports in our schools,” she was quoted as saying.

The 71-year-old was asked if such a ban was “de-legitimising” to trans persons, but she responded by saying “have a good day” before getting into her car.

Caitlyn recently announced she is running for California governor. She took to Twitter to clarify her stance. “I didn’t expect to get asked this on my Saturday morning coffee run, but I’m clear about where I stand. It’s an issue of fairness and we need to protect girls’ sports in our schools.”

Caitlyn’s comments, however, did not go down well with netizens.

A social media user wrote, “Cait… this ain’t it. When you’re on hormones and or blockers there is not an advantage. I ran track at the club level with college girls and trust me there is no advantage. I would have went pro if I was able to run the times I ran before hormones etc.”

Another wrote, “I’m a cis woman who used to play sports in junior high and high school — I did not need or want your (or anyone’s) protection against trans girls then, and as an adult I still find the idea ludicrous. Let the girls play. All the girls. Find an issue that’s actually a problem.”
