Transgender woman sues CrossFit
March 10 , 2014
A transgender woman in California is asking the company behind the CrossFit workout to let her compete in its fitness competitions as a female. Reports suggest that Chloe Jonsson stated in her lawsuit that the company violated her rights.
Jonsson's complaint mentions that she has been living as a female since the time she was a teenager and has satisfied the requirements of the state so she can be recognized as a female.
However, a company lawyer thinks that it would be unfair to let the woman compete as a female since she would still have a "genetic makeup that confers a physical and physiological advantage over women."
