New guidance from British Gymnastics allowing males who say they are female to share changing facilities with girls has come under fire from parents. Clubs are also being told that transgender competitors must be allowed to share accommodation spaces with the opposite sex when competing away from home, regardless of their age and without informing parents. The new guidance has been issued to thousands of British Gymnastics clubs, with more than 350,000 members. British Gymnastics launched the new policy after receiving advice from trans activists. It reads: “Competition organisers must ensure that all participants are able to have access to changing rooms and toilets, according to the gender in which they present.” Adding: “If an individual remains unhappy about a trans person using facilities appropriate to their gender identity, then they should make alternative arrangements.” British Gymnastics has also prevents coaches from telling parents if their daughters are sharing rooms with boys identifying as girls, and is allowing boys to compete in female-only competitions.
