Navratilova is Wrong about Transgender Women in Sport

Yes, there is huge unfairness in women’s sports, but transgender women aren’t the cause of it.

The top level of every sport should be for those people who are the best at that sport. Their gender — including their birth gender — should have nothing to do with it.

When a professional player steps on the tennis court, I’m interested in how well they play tennis and how entertaining they are to watch. If they’ve got character, that’s important, because that helps determine whether or not I am going to root for them. But I am not interested in their gender.
