     Nine Republican governors have called on the NCAA to toughen its “misguided” transgender policy by barring male-born athletes from women’s intercollegiate sports in the interest of competitive fairness.  As they should.

     The NCAA’s Transgender Student-Athlete Participation Policy approved in January 2022 says that each sport’s rules will be determined by the national governing body of that sport, a standard that the governors described as inadequate.  “The NCAA has the chance to guarantee an environment where female college athletes can thrive without the concern of inequities,” said the Monday letter led by South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem. “We trust that you also want to guarantee just such an environment. But this policy allows the NCAA to avoid responsibility for ensuring the fairness of collegiate sports – therefore it must be changed.”
