Biological women and Transwomen sports

In early February 2022, Liberal Senator Claire Chandler introduced her private member’s bill to the senate. The bill “Saving Women’s Sports” aims to amend existing legislation on sexual discrimination in sports.  

Senator Chandler said: “What my bill is seeking to do is just ensure that these sporting clubs can’t have legal action taken against them if they choose to offer single-sex sport for women and girls.”

Prime Minister Scott Morrison had also thrown his support behind biological women in sport when it came down to trans women competing against them.

“It’s a terrific bill and I’ve given her great encouragement,” Mr Morrison said.

This has caused some push back in the transgender community and even Anthony Albanese had something to say about the Prime Minister’s comments on this matter. He said, “This Prime Minister needs to do his day job. His day job is about things that he’s responsible for – not look for wedges and dividing Australia”.

Hannah Mouncey, a transgender footballer player, also lashed out at the Prime Minister, saying “I’m exhausted… if it’s good enough for the Olympics that we play, it should be good enough for Scott Morrison.”

Scott Morrison has since then reversed his support for Senator Claire Chandlers Bill. Leaving Australians without a straight answer, does he support trans women competing in women’s sports or not?

Senator Pauline Hanson has said: “The Prime Minister never backs his words with action”.

In Senator Pauline Hansons’ press release, she said: ” A nation does not care that men want to be transwomen, but it doesn’t entitle them to put the safety of biological women at risk by competing in women’s sport. It makes a mockery of the achievements of the great Australian athletes, many of whom were pioneers in their chosen sports, and one nation will never support it.”

Biologically, men and women have different strengths and weaknesses, but this does not mean that transgender athletes should be excluded from the many benefits of sport. Instead of trying to integrate transgender athletes into one of the two categories, male or female, maybe it is the sport that needs to be adapted by adding new classifications.
