Respondents to a poll said they think athletes should participate in sports according to their biological sex and not the sex they want to live as or their “gender identity.”
Sixty five percent of the MetroNews poll respondents said biological sex should determine what team student athletes play on. Twenty-three percent said “transgender” athletes should be allowed to play on sports teams that match their “gender identity.”
MetroNews reported on its poll:
That closely matches the results of a national Gallup poll from earlier this year, which showed that a majority of Americans (62 percent) say trans athletes should only be allowed to play on sports teams that correspond with their sex at birth, while 34 percent said they should be able to play on teams that match their gender identity.
