International chess official suggests women can’t compete with men due to “hormones” & “endurance”

An official from the International Chess Federation (FIDE) has explained the federation’s decision to ban trans competitors by citing differences between men’s and women’s “physical endurance” and “hormone levels.”

British women’s champion Jovanka Houska suggested via Twitter that the FIDE backtrack and change its policy once again to be trans-inclusive.

Cathy Renna, communications director for the National LGBTQ Task Force in the United States, said the FIDE’s anti-trans ban had “no justification” and was “not grounded in reality” but was instead a case of “trans panic” that will marginalize trans people.
