Jenner Flip-Flops: Boys Who Started Trans Treatment Young ‘Should Be Able To Compete In Girls’ Sports’

Republican California gubernatorial candidate Caitlyn Jenner contradicted a previous claim that biological boys should not be permitted to compete in girls’ sports. Jenner said on Fox News Wednesday that boys who identified as girls at “a very young age” ought to be able to do so.

“I’m not running as a trans activist, I’m running as a California citizen that has lived there for 48 years,” said Jenner. “What I would do as governor is I would put together a commission. Trans women compete in the Olympics, they compete in the NCAA, but when it gets down to the high school level, there’s no guide rules, there’s no rules and regulations how they can.”

“And trans women who are truly trans, who at a very young age, you know, started proper medical treatment, they’ve grown up as girls — of course, they should be able to compete in girls’ sports,” Jenner said. “But yeah, some guy who hasn’t done any therapy, hasn’t done anything, there has to be a review board. And I would be the first governor to put together a review board to review each case,” Jenner added. “Such a small issue. It’s like a nonissue that’s out there. And I would be surprised if there’s 30 trans athletes in the entire state.”
