The world governing body for swimming, FINA, has voted to restrict participation of transgender athletes in elite swimming competitions, effective Monday.
The new rule, which passed by a 71% majority of all members, states that it will require transgender competitors to have completed their transition by the age of 12 to be able to compete in women’s competitions.

The new decision took place at the World Championships in Budapest, Hungary — 152 nations’ federations were gathered and heard a report from a transgender task force made up of leading medical and sports figures.

It seems as though there is a sliver of sanity creeping through the fog of lunacy.
“The new rule, which passed by a 71% majority of all members, states that it will require transgender competitors to have completed their transition by the age of 12 to be able to compete in women’s competitions.”
Uhhh, I don’t know if this is inadvertent or not, but is this not encouraging children transition if they are an elite athlete and are “uncomfortable” with their bodies?
Not complicated although some want to make it seem so look down if you have a dick your a dude if you have a pussy your a chick
How screwed up is the NCAA that FINA makes better decisions?
Finally a governing body that is rational. Now we need college administrators to follow suit.
