Should a transgender boy be allowed to participate in girls team sports?

This is something that is going on in my town.

A 15 yr old boy-to-girl transgender wants to play on the girls softball and lacrosse teams.

Most people feel that because biologically he is still a boy, it gives him an unfair advantage while playing against girls

I agree that physically (s)he would have an advantage over biologically female players. However, that doesn't necessarily mean they should be excluded. I wish co-ed sporting was more common and accepted.

The child identifies as female,So they're female. She should be allowed to play.

He still has the strength of a boy and so has an unfair advantage so I say no he should not be allowed to play on a girls team, let him play on the boys team!

No. Boys have higher bone density and muscle mass. It wouldn't be fair to the actual girls. Not to mention the locker room issues.

I don't see how dangly bits give her an inherent advantage. Everyone's body is different. Do they not allow people with disabilities to play? What about kids who are fitter than others?

Where do you live that they don't allow boys on softball teams? 

 I think it should be looked into on a civil rights matter. Not a transgender one.

If it is a competative league  - probably not.

If it is recreational - sure. 

you could ask the girls on the league.

I don't know. I've met some scrawny ass teenage boys before. Lol

No. Dicks should stay with dicks a s pussies with pussies. When you get to the real world past high school it's every person for themselves.

She still has the body of a boy. So muscle mass, bone density, build, all of that. It really had nothing to do with having a penis or not, it's about having an unfair biological advantage over the other girls who have the
mind AND body of a girl.
