The International Rugby League (IRL) announced that players who have transitioned from male to female will be refused permission to play in sanctioned women’s international rugby league matches until further notice. This ruling came a day after the world swimming body FINA banned transgender swimmers from participating at a women’s-elite competition level.

For me, the decision should be decided upon by the female athletes themselves, at each different association, by way of a vote.

Although I think the ban is based on verifiable facts, regarding the difference between female and male anatomy, the decision has been made by a pack of privileged men (and one women.)

So is the decision representative of the female athletes who play the respective sports? Nobody can say for sure.
