TRANS MAN WINS GIRLS’ WRESTLING TI­TLE

Diva (UK) - - News Round-up -

A young trans man has won a girls’ wrestling ti­tle de­spite com­plaints hor­mone treat­ment cre­ated an un­fair ad­van­tage. Mack Beggs beat Chelsea Sanchez to earn the Texas state cham­pi­onship. His fam­ily has said he would rather be wrestling boys, but state pol­icy calls for stu­dents to wres­tle against the gen­der listed on their birth cer­tifi­cates. Beggs, who reached the state tour­na­ment af­ter two op­po­nents for­feited, was dogged through­out the event by ques­tions about whether his testos­terone lev­els made him too strong to wres­tle fairly against girls.
