Transgender athletes now able to compete in Olympics without first doing surgery

150716070949-02-caitlyn-jenner-espys-super-169CNN – The issue of transgender athletes recently gained wider global attention when Bruce Jenner, the 1976 Olympic decathlon champion, announced he had undergone gender reassignment surgery and was now living as a woman, Caitlyn Jenner.

Now transgender athletes look set to compete at the Olympic Games for the first time without first having to undergo gender reassignment surgery.

Medical chiefs at the International Olympic Committee (IOC) have recommended the change which could mean transgender athletes would be more readily able to take part in this summer’s Olympics in Rio de Janeiro as well as other international events.

Transgender athletes have been allowed to compete at the Games since 2004 but only after surgery, having undergone a minimum of two years hormone therapy and being legally recognized as their changed gender.

Headed by Professor Ugur Erdener, the IOC medical hearing’s findings said that, “it is necessary to ensure in so far as possible that trans athletes are not excluded from the opportunity to participate in sporting competition,” while still ensuring “the guarantee of fair competition.”

The hearing concluded that insisting on surgery “may be inconsistent with developing legislation and notions of human rights.”

As a result, it is proposed that athletes “who transition from female to male are eligible to compete in the male category without restriction.”

  1. Perverts has infiltrated everything. Soon they will be the NEW NAZIS and the rest of us their Fodder and Slaves with their unassailable lust for Perverted POWER. Laws made for peace and equality for society as a whole are done away with and replaced with perverted CHAOS. If those men who like having perverted sex with horses had a horse penis transplant, they would claim No law was broken; would they not!? WHAT then!? Decent people are no longer running for High Office, Not Sensible ones anyway. WATCH how many Perverts and the Ignorant tick thumbs down

  3. Utter and ridiculous nonsense!!!!! How on earth can someone with a scrotum and a high level of natural testosterone compete against females just because they wear a wig and lipstick.

    If this is the case, then Germany should be returned all their medals which were confiscated, when it was confirmed that their females were injected with male hormones!!!
