Government attitudes toward transgender athletes
The participation of transgender athletes in women’s competitions will be the most important issue that federations and governments will address in upcoming dates. In case Laurel Hubbard In the past Olympic Games He was forgotten due to his poor athletic results. However, the explosion of Lia Thomas and the emergence of different trans women in a similar situation revolutionized women’s sports. Divide the criteria caused by International Olympic Committee He has created a map with a variety of opinions and measures.
Spain, for example, has for months witnessed the clash between the Trans Law promoted by Irene Montero and the regulations of the International Olympic Committee. The conflict that disappeared after the Olympicswhen the organization that leads Thomas Bach Giving each federation complete freedom to set their own standards for transgender athletes. As published by EL ESPAÑOL, the federal sport will be guided by its own federation regulations. The rest will not be required to submit any medical report to the trans-competition athlete.
In addition, the new sports law will come into effect soon. A law that renews the 1990 law and is considered according to what is transmitted from the environment of the promoters.comprehensive“This term dislikes some of the feminist sectors that oppose the participation of transgender athletes in the female category because of a clear competitive disparity, they deplore.
strongest case against the erasure of women, which organized a few weeks ago an international conference to show opposition to the introduction of regulations for including transgender athletes in women’s competitions. He had intended to meet with Minister Miguel Isita to discuss the situation. However, despite the application being submitted last week, no response has yet been received. What is more, he will not attend and there will be no meeting with the minister except for a last minute change.
According to ministerial sources, EL ESPAÑOL, the issue will remain in the hands of the Supreme Council for Sports. In this way, Mikel Isita will avoid having to meet with the sorority and will stay away from a very controversial issue. It must be remembered that already in PSOE, while addressing the Trans Law in the Cabinet, cracks opened due to the various theories on the subject. This is why not attending this meeting is so important.
Following this lack of response from the ministry, a group against women’s erasure will continue its round of contacts to defend its position in the face of the imminent approval of a sports law it opposes. There have already been meetings with those in charge of the sports area As PP and citizens. There were also such meetings with federations such as athletics or mountain and mountaineering.
Soon the appointments will continue with others such as powerlifting, whose boss was already against Laurel Hubbard’s participation in previous games. The work that began nearly a year ago, which included meetings with the director general of CSD, will continue at the height of the controversy over transgender athletes.
UK, most assured
The lack of a definition of Miquel Iceta contrasts with the power of other countries around Spain. The clearest thing so far is the UK, which has shown, however, two somewhat different locations in its sporting chart.
There was a known case of a cyclist recently Emily Bridges, who was given the green light by the British Federation to participate in the women’s event, but she was unable to do so after the International Cycling Union banned her because the men’s card was still valid. The FA called for an agreement between the federations and warned that the matter should be addressed to avoid further complications.
However, in the face of British Cycling’s slight support for its trans-cyclists, it was rejected in the last hours. Boris Johnson. “I don’t think biological men should compete in women’s sporting events. And perhaps this is somewhat controversial…but it seems reasonable to me.” Despite everything, he made it clear that the controversy could not be ended with a ‘quick law.’
On the contrary, there is no attitude to these characteristics in Spain, and even less so after Miquel Isita refused to meet with the feminist group that requested it. In the United States, various regions are working to ban participation such as Leah Thomas from participating in school competitions. But the official position of the executive branch Joe Biden It is for each athlete to decide where to participate.
The division of opinions between states and unions is clear. In Spain, as confirmed by EL ESPAÑOL, no case of dispute has reached the Supreme Council of Sports, so there are no situations similar to what happened in Lia Thomas. But as is evident from the scenarios that occur, the problem must be addressed in order to manage it on the basis of a common premise.
