Kim Kardashian transgender stepfather happy with new swimming rules

Not only swimming, but every event in athletics is being discussed. Transgender athletes compete in women's events. Questions have always been raised about how fair their decision to participate with female athletes is. Yesterday the International Swimming Federation (FINA) announced their position. Under that rule, most transgender athletes will no longer be able to compete in women's swimming events.

Caitlyn Jenner is the most famous athlete when it comes to transgender athletes. A few days ago, Caitlin, known as the stepfather of Bruce Jenner and Kim Kardashian, introduced herself as a transgender woman in 2015. Jenner gave her nod to transgender female athletes competing in women's events despite major obstacles.

Swimming's governing body released new 'gender inclusive' rules last Sunday. 71.5 percent of FINA member federations were in favor of this decision. Under the new rules, male-to-female transgender athletes can now compete in the women's events in swimming. But in that case, only athletes who transitioned before the age of 12 or the second stage of puberty in males can participate. This rule came into effect from 20 June 2022. In 2022, transgender Leah Thomas won gold in the 500-yard freestyle at the United States Intercollegiate Championships. The participation of this swimmer, who played on the boys' team until 2020, caused great controversy. Discussions on gender inclusion norms begin anew. Under the newly passed law, Thomas will no longer be able to compete in girls' events.

Caitlyn Jenner has been speaking in favor of this rule for a long time. Jenner received gold with inside the decathlon at the 1976 Olympics. Taking part in the men's event and winning the gold, the athlete expressed his joy in a tweet saying, 'It worked! I've heard a lot of criticism, but what's fair is fair! If you go through puberty for boys, you shouldn't take away medals from girls. This is the last thing.

FINA President Hussain Al-Musallam said in this regard, "The right of athletes to participate must be protected, but it is also right, the balance of competition must also be protected. Especially in the final girls' competition.

Keeping in mind the difference in performance between boys and girls at the time of puberty, FINA has said that this rule has been made. Jenner also believes that transgender people who transition after puberty have an advantage over girls physically. And for this reason, he did not back down from his position even in the face of criticism from other trans genders, "Girls' game must be protected." We cannot bow down to the pressure of left-wing radical thinking and "identity politics". It's not fair, we have to protect girls' sports in our schools.'

In another tweet, Jenner said that her position is not anti-gay or anti-transgender, "It's clear, (not homophobic, it's common sense) that I was talking about, thank you to everyone who stood by me." I am happy that people in international athletics are starting to open up about this. I will continue to talk about the rights of women in the sports arena, I will continue to work.
