Caitlyn Jenner faces a backlash against transgender girls in school sports
Caitlyn Jenner faces backlash after sharing her views on transgender girls competing in school sports.
During a brief interview with TMZ released on Saturday May 1st, the 71-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians star made her first public statement on polarization since announcing her plan to those expected To vote in recall elections to succeed the Democratic Governor of California Gavin Newsom.
“This is a question of fairness,” Caitlyn told TMZ. “That’s why I reject biological boys who trans-compete in girls ‘sports in school. It’s just not fair, and we have to protect girls’ sports in our schools.”
The reporter tried to ask a follow-up question about this attitude, but Caitlyn cut off the chat and got into her vehicle.
Later in the day, the star and longtime Republican doubled their point of view by tweeting a link to TMZ’s story about their comments.
“I didn’t expect to be asked about this on my Saturday morning coffee run, but I know where I am,” wrote Caitlyn. “It’s a question of fairness and we have to protect girls’ sport in our schools.”
