Caitlyn Jenner, candidate for California governor and former Olympic gold medallist, says she opposes trans girls participating in women’s sports. Ms Jenner, who came out as a trans woman in 2015, told a reporter: “It just isn’t fair. And we have to protect girls’ sports in our schools.” The Republican candidate for governor gave what appeared to be an impromptu interview to the TMZ website. A number of US states are considering a ban on trans girls in women’s sports. Mississippi signed such a ban into law in March, although it is expected to face appeals. The Human Rights Campaign — the largest LGBT advocacy group in the US — says some 17 other states are considering similar legislation.
