Change the PDGA Policy on Eligibility for Gender-Restricted Divisions
The Professional Disc Golf Association (PDGA) currently has a policy that allows transgender women (male to female) to compete in gender- restricted divisions. The policy is not in the best interest of cisgender women. Transgender women are born male which gives them an advantage in sports performance.
The current PDGA policy attempts to eliminate the competitive advantages transgender women have by requiring hormone treatments or gender reassignment surgery along with testing testosterone levels. This method falls short of eliminating the advantages of being born a male. Currently a method to prove all competitive advantages are eliminated does not exist.
The PDGA needs to reevaluate the current policy and come up with an equitable solution for both transgender women and cisgender women.
