Transgender sport policy has ‘no scientific basis’ – The Australian

Tasmanian Liberal Claire Chandler says the Australian Human Rights Commission is ignoring serious injury risks to women in sport and has called for urgent withdrawal of pro-transgender guidelines aimed at nine million players.

Senator Chandler, who has been pursuing the agencies over the policy process, said it was now conceded “that the guidelines have no scientific basis, no consideration of safety, no consideration of fairness in women’s sport”.

A legal opinion from Melbourne QC Stuart Wood to Senator Chandler says the 2019 trans-inclusion document created by the human rights experts is an inaccurate and misleading guide to anti-discrimination law and sport, with potentially “dangerous practical effects” if sporting bodies rely on it.
