The international governing body for competitive running just banned transgender athletes from female events
· May 10, 2023 ·

It looks like the sport of competitive running just got a whole lot more competitive in the women's category.

Yup, no longer are males permitted to participate in international female running events.

This is great news for anyone who believes in truth.

World Athletics has banned male-to-female transgender athletes from international women's competitions in sports like track and field following new restrictions last year on transgender swimmers.

The organization's council – which regulates track and field and other running events – voted on Thursday to "exclude male-to-female transgender athletes who have been through male puberty" beginning March 31 [2023], according to a press release.

I hate to call this progress, you guys, but technically it is.

It's like taking that one step forward after the two back — the two back being that time where we considered it reasonable to allow men to participate in women's sports.

More from World Athletics:

World Athletics President Sebastian Coe said the organization's view is that "we must maintain fairness for female athletes above all other considerations."

"We will be guided in this by the science around physical performance and male advantage, which will inevitably develop over the coming years," Coe said. "As more evidence becomes available, we will review our position, but we believe the integrity of the female category in athletics is paramount."

Seriously, this is great news for female athletes.

And this new rule protects many international competitions, including the Olympics, so hopefully this can create a sort of trend and we will see this rule applied in lower levels of competition too.

Well, things are looking up for us sane people who don't subscribe to the gender cult.

And this is one step, hopefully of many, in the right direction.

The future is getting brighter for female athletes across the globe!
