Keeping Up With the Kardashians, has been outspoken on transgender in sport for a number of years and has once again divided opinion with her thoughts on the latest controversy.Riley Gaines, spokeswoman with Independent Women's Forum, had tweeted about an athletics event in which she hit out at a competitor named Chloe, who is transgender.She wrote on Twitter, alongside a photo of those competing in the event: "Massachusetts girls high school track and field state championship a few weeks ago.
Can you guess which is the male?"Chloe's message to the girls he beat who protested his inclusion...'Deal with it. Just deal with it.'"Jenner then posted her thoughts on the matter by quote tweeting the original message with her own, with the reality star adding: "Protect womens sports!
This person should not be competing with young women / girls. This is beyond unfair!"Protect womens sports! This person should not be competing with young women / girls.
This is beyond unfair! https://t.co/oc36NLG5OUIn response, Mike Lee, a Republican senator for Utah, replied to Jenner by asking: "How was this sort of thing handled when you were in the Olympics?"Jenner, who won gold in the 1976 Olympics and set a world record in the process when she was Bruce Jenner, replied to the senator by explaining: "At that time, the IOC (International Olympic Cmte governing body) conducted saliva tests for DNA/chromosomal tests."I am not advocating this as the solution for all sports everywhere - BUT this is what they did then.
