Caitlyn Jenner opposes letting trans girls play school sports. It's her first campaign issue.


While she announced her campaign earlier this week, Jenner never got around to telling anyone where she stood on anything - until now.

By Bil Browning Saturday, May 1, 2021

Former Olympian Caitlyn Jenner is running to be the next governor of California, but she’s doing it without the support of the LGBTQ community. A Republican, she has found herself at odds with the trans community frequently and it isn’t hard to see why.

While she announced her campaign earlier this week, Jenner never got around to telling anyone where she stood on any issues – until now. She doesn’t think that transgender girls should be able to play school sports.

“This is an issue of fairness,” Jenner told a TMZ reporter who caught her out and about. “This is why I oppose biological boys who are trans competing in girls’ sports in school. It just isn’t fair. And we have to protect girls’ sports in our schools.”

“But if someone transitions and now identifies as a girl isn’t it delegitimizing their identity to deny them…” the reporter starts to ask before Jenner cuts them off.

2. Some questions

How many trans girls participate in school sports?

How have they fared in the sports they participate in?

IOW, and I know I'm being petty here, where the is research?

Is this a "problem," or is it simply a wedge issue to get out the (fill in the blank) phobic voters?

I may be going out on a limb here, but I think it's a wedge issue, i.e., a non-issue, a culture war issue, a RWNJ issue.

3. I get the impression from Jenner's comments

From Jenner's comments this sounds like a widespread problem, all these biological boys crowding the girls off the courts, the fields, and the pitches. Sounds very serious! Where is it happening? How many? Can you steer me to even one instance, Caitlyn?

4. But it is probably ok for them to pose for a magazine cover in their underwear.

Jenner did that.

5. Jenner's candidacy may have prematurely exposed a Republican attack issue.

There is time now to work up a unified and coordinated Democratic position on the issue of sports. President Biden showed support in his recent speech, but there will be attack lines that future Democratic candidates will have to answer to.
