Trans sports ban overturned in West Virginia
A federal appeals court has voted to overturn West Virginia’s law that bans transgender athletes from playing on teams consistent with their gender identity.
The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals’ ruling argues that the law violates Title IX, which protects against sex-based discrimination in schools.
The judges argued that the restrictions cannot be lawfully applied to prevent a 13-year-old girl taking puberty-blockers and who has openly identified as a girl for years from participating in sports.
