What’s Current: Trans-identified male rugby player Emma Farnan claims he has no advantage over women

  • Trans-identified male rugby player, Emma Farnan, claims he does not have advantages over women in the sport. “Being trans doesn’t mean inherently that I’m going to be a good player,” he told Good Morning America. Farnan plays for the Southern Headliners Rugby Club women’s team in the Premier Rugby (PR) Sevens league.
  • Flo, a period tracking app, is under fire after it was revealed that males were allowed in the app’s private forums, and were communicating with women on about their periods.
  • The mainstream media is finally covering the fact that schools are transing kids without their parents’ knowledge. The New York Times reports:

“… Dozens of parents whose children have socially transitioned at school told The Times they felt villainized by educators who seemed to think that they — not the parents — knew what was best for their children.”
