"The U.S. Education Department's Office for Civil Rights has found a Connecticut policy that allows transgender athletes to compete in girls sports is illegal. The office says the policy violates Title IX, the federal civil rights law that guarantees equal education opportunities for women, including in athletics."

I support transgender people, but, I agree with this. If you are biologically a male, you have an advantage, and should not be allowed to play with biological females.

Do you agree or disagree and why?

I can't disagree, but the options aren't much better: either force transgender compete with opposite gender athletes or stop transgender competing entirely (or allow them only compete each others, making sport too small to exist). In any case it's unfair to somebody.

I support the rights of everyone to be whatever they want to be, UNTIL it violates the rights of somebody else.
