The main question that is being asked is should Transgender athletes be able to participate in sports even if they say that they are transgender? Many people are not agreeing with this because of the fact that
Hey Riley I loved this article! In the first sentence it quotes, “The main question that is being asked is should Transgender athletes be able to participate in sports even if they say that they are transgender?”. I think that the fact that they are transgender, it does not mean they can’t participate in sports just because of their gender. I do think if they had a very bad medical condition that they shouldn’t participate in sports. Why do you ask this? Because medical condition and gender are two different things, and only one affects how they play or participate in the specific sport they play.
Dear Riley, i think that your writing was amazing. one thing that you said that stands out to me is ” the main question being asked is being transgender athletes be able to participate in sports even if they say that they are transgender.” i really think that if someone is transgender they should be able to do sports that they want to and shouldn’t be not allowed to not do something just because they are transgender. I’m sure that` there are times where they shouldn’t play for reasons.

This is a youth-powered publishing platform that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It’s easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other’s work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it’s been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
There are over 8,000 posts and over 13,000 comments by young people on the site on topics as diverse as the American Dream, Shakespeare, and sports as well as original poems and stories.
Youth Voices is a platform for youth to write about their interests, both in school and outside of school: what they are reading, what their hobbies or future careers might be, what they enjoy in their spare time. Like all of us, students follow our national leadership and form opinions. They are also welcome to write about those topics as well.
Youth Voices is fully non-partisan and welcomes youth of all types, from all regions, and with all viewpoints. Educators support youth in writing and thoughtfully responding to each other through the use of commenting guides, using tags to show common interests, playlists to support self-guided inquiry; opinions expressed by writers are their own.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
