Female athletes file lawsuit against NCAA over transgender policies that allow biological men to compete against women
By Kevin Hughes // Mar 20, 2024

A group of 16 female athletes recently filed a major lawsuit against the National Collegiate Athletics Association (NCAA) relating to the ongoing participation of male-to-female transgenders in their respective sports.

The lawyer of the student-athletes has charged that the organization has "institutionalized cheating and discrimination" against them in sports, including swimming, volleyball, tennis and track and field.

The lawsuit claims that the NCAA has made a "radical departure from Title IX's original meaning," and is guilty of sex-based discrimination. Title IX is a landmark federal civil rights law that prohibits sex-based discrimination in any school or educational program that receives funding from the federal government.

The complaint, filed in Atlanta with the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia, also refers to hundreds of other female athletes who have been forced to share changing facilities with transgender swimmer Lia Thomas who, at the time she was competing, still had "full male genitalia."

Thomas proceeded to win the NCAA title in the women's 500-yard freestyle event, beating two Olympic silver medal winners.

The complaint alleges that "without notice to female swimmers competing in the 2022 NCAA Championships, the NCAA and … one or more other state actors or actors with apparent state authority … changed the designation of the locker rooms to be used by the women swimmers … to 'unisex' locker rooms."

This was done, as stated in the suit "so that Thomas, a fully grown adult male with full male genitalia, would use the same locker rooms to be used by more than 300 female student-athletes, depriving the female student-athletes of sex-separated women's locker room facilities and bathroom and restroom facilities where their right to bodily privacy could be protected."

The complaint additionally charges that the women were exposed to "shock, humiliation and embarrassment in violation of their constitutional right."

Lawsuit could ban trans athletes from all national-level sporting events

The athletes are looking to overturn the results of the competitions where they finished behind trans participants and could be awarded damages as well. If they are successful, it could lead to major changes in NCAA rules on the participation of transgender athletes in the women's division.

If the lawsuit prevails, most sports could ban transgender athletes from participating at the national level.

Bill Bock, former general counsel at the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, is representing the women. He believes that "discrimination against female student-athletes should disqualify the NCAA from being a sport governing body."

Bock further alleged that the NCAA "only requires an athlete to provide one testosterone result 28 days before a competition, and that is not best practice as demonstrated by multiple international federations."

"It is time for each of the NCAA's sponsors, and for all sports organizations that care about fair competition and safe sport, to recognize the NCAA has institutionalized cheating and discrimination against women and must be reformed," Bock added.

He also stated that the 2022 locker room incident in Atlanta was "nothing less than exploitation and a disgraceful violation of women's rights." (Related: World Athletics bans transgender athletes from competing in female category at international events.)
