(TheLastPatriotNews.com) – When even a professional transgender athlete comes out and says that transgender women athletes should be excluded from women’s sports, there may be hope that the tide is turning in the right direction.
According to several sources, Mianne Bagger, a professional golfer, has gone on record stating that she supports a bill to exclude trans athletes from female sports even though she is the first transgender golfer to play in a professional tournament.
“Letting trans athletes compete in female sports is a slap in the face to women,” Bagger said, according to news.com.au., when she was asked why she supports changing an Australian law that allowed the golfer to compete with women after she transitioned from being a man to being a woman.
Bagger was the first trans woman to compete in a pro golf tournament when she competed in the 2004 Australian Open.
According to Bagger, trans women are more biologically aligned with men and never completely transition as women.
“These days, [the argument] has crept into what’s called self ID or self-identification: male-bodied people presenting as women, who live as women, with varying degrees of medical intervention and in some degrees, no medical intervention, which is just — it’s crossed the line, in my view, it really has…It’s a slap in the face to women,” Bagger told news.com.au.
“I just don’t agree with the current, softened policies that are requiring less and less medical intervention of a male-bodied person entering women’s sport,” Bagger said.
