«Hormones and drugs are just putting drugs into sport. It’s not fair to girls. I like to be inclusive and accepting of people, but they have men competing in women’s sports,» the mother told daily mail.
The father asked to remain anonymous due to possible backlash against him and his daughter, but his feelings remain strong and clear.
«It’s pretty clear to me or anyone with a brain that if you’re going through or have gone through male puberty, then you should only compete against people who have gone through or are going through male puberty,» he said.

The father said the team was forced to «accept» the situation and blamed the organizers of the competition.
«These children, they are children, [and] live in the world that adults have created. I don’t blame the winning athlete. This is a failure at the administrative level and above,” she said.
«I’ll point out the obvious: You ruin women’s sports by allowing men to compete in women’s sports.»
