DNC Chair: Transgendered Women Should Be Able To Play Professional Female Contact Sports
SIMI VALLEY, Calif. — Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz says that men who become women should be able to play female professional sports, including contact sports.
“I think that transgendered women — I think women should be able to participate in contact sports if they can compete effectively,” she told The Daily Caller in the “spin room” after the CNN Republican presidential debate Wednesday night.
“I think that if they are living as a woman and identifying as a woman that they should be able to play on a women’s team,” she added. “But also I think that there are women who should be able to play on a men’s teams if they can effectively compete and vice versa.”
Asked specifically whether men who become women should be able to compete in female boxing or female mixed martial arts, the DNC chair punted.
“You’re going a little deep on the type of sport,” she said. “I think we are a little afield of what we are here to talk about.”
There is a serious debate over whether men who become women should be allowed to compete in female professional sports, especially contact sports, because men are on average physically much stronger than women, according to the medical literature and obvious observable reality.
