Women and girls across the country are quitting sports after being injured and intimidated by transgender competitors, a worrying report reveals.
Testimonies from across 25 different disciplines detail how girls as young as 12 have been forced to share changing rooms with biological adult males who say they identify as women.
The 28-page report reveals how some women and girls have suffered dislocations and even broken bones from being forced to compete against much heavier and muscular transgender athletes.
Tory MP Nick Fletcher said: ‘The bullying, unfairness and physical risk being inflicted on women and girls in this country because sports clubs and bodies are being bullied or misled by trans activists and lobby groups should shame us all’
Accounts in the dossier, released by campaign group Fair Play For Women, include:
- A 6ft 16st trans woman who broke one woman’s finger and dislocated the shoulder of another during a judo tournament
- Female rugby players forced to share an open shower with a male-bodied teammate who identifies as a woman
- An athlete who received death threats for raising concerns about competing against transgender women
- A 13-year-old girl who lost her place as a goalkeeper on a girls’ football team to a boy identifying as a girl
- A university rower who says she was forced to share changing rooms with a transgender woman, while another teammate was asked to share overnight accommodation with them
- A 15-year-old football striker said she was forced to give up the sport because it was ‘too risky’ to take on teams with a male goalkeeper
