Navratilova slams Aussie gymnastics’ pro trans stance

Martina Navratilova has slammed Gymnastics Australia – saying “what is wrong with you guys” for allowing biological males who identify as female, and permitting them access to young girls and women’s changing rooms and competitions.

Navratilova, 66, hit out at the national organisation, which boasts of more than 800,000 participants with one of the highest participation sports for children under 12 – for changing its rules to allow transgender people to self-identify and compete in all community gymnastics events.

She said Gymnastics Australia’s position “just threw females and girls under the bus” and warned “to say this won’t end well is an understatement’’.
