Caitlyn Jenner shared her thoughts about the lingering debate over transgender women/girls playing school sports. Jenner's vague stance has left many confused. 

A TMZ reporter interviewed Jenner on the street and asked, “There’s legislative in various states that ban biological boys who are trans from playing girls sports in school -- what’s your opinion on that?” 

Jenner responded with a short answer.

“This is a question of fairness, that’s why I oppose biological boys, who are trans, competing in girls’ sports in school. It just isn’t fair and we have to protect girls’ sports in school,” Jenner said.

Some on social media suggested that Jenner's stance contradicts the 2015 speech for the Arthur Ashe Courage Award.

“I also want to acknowledge all the young trans athletes who are out there - given the chance to play sports as who they really are,” Jenner had said in the speech. 

Tennessee, Mississippi, Arkansas, South Dakota, West Virginia and Idaho are the five states that have banned transgender girls from playing on girls' interscholastic sports teams. There are several other states that are also considering the ban.

Jenner, 71, was born William Bruce Jenner and won a gold medal in the men's decathlon at the 1976  Olympics in Montreal. 

Jenner is running as a Republican in the 2021 California gubernatorial recall election.

Gov. Gavin Newsom, a Democrat, has faced criticism for his handling of the pandemic but has received positive approval ratings in recent weeks. A recent poll from the Public Policy Institute of California poll showed that 56% of likely Californian voters want Newsom to remain in office.
