In this episode, I speak with Taylor Silverman, who went public with her concerns about competing against a self-identified transwoman at a RedBull skate contest.
That was a phenomenal interview. Lots of young girls can look up to Taylor as a role model in sport.
I've been trying to work out why so many women in sport are okay with competing against trans athletes and I've come up with this....I've found that those who are okay with it are NOT the ones coming in second or third. They are the ones that are in the middle or bottom of the pack and they would prefer to lose 1st place to a trans-woman (rather than to a fellow biological woman) because losing to another woman means they could have tried harder. If they lose to a trans-woman, they know there is nothing else they could have done.
