Publisher's Summary

Radical gender activists are using a pseudoscientific theory of human biology to hijack sports and subvert the long-established concept of fair play - forcing women and girls to risk their safety, pushing them aside for male athletes using the excuse of “inclusivity”.

In the new book Unsporting: How Trans Activism and Science Denial Are Destroying Sport, former Canadian track champion Linda Blade and renowned National Post columnist Barbara Kay, examine the dangers of gender ideology in sports. They document the attack on biological facts upon which the level playing field of sports rests. Tackling issues few have the courage to say out loud, Unsporting shows the harm inflicted on female athletes and identifies the institutions driving this movement.

What does the future hold for sports if biological reality is ignored? Blade answers that question and concludes with a reasonable plan to reverse course.

About "Gender Inclusivity Misogyny"

Is it fair for someone with a male body, greater size and muscle mass, greater lung capacity, and larger heart to compete against women who were born female, and compete against them in rugby, roller derby, soccer, la crosse, swimming, track, wrestling, etc.? Those in favor of such competition ignore the science that Blade and Kay present convincingly in this book.

Carefully documented, well researched, and written in a tone you would expect of a Canadian: polite and respectful.

Makes a persuasive argument that women's athletics should be reserved for individuals in women's bodies so that women can benefit from the gains of Title IX that created a level playing field for women in sports in this nation. What a person in a man's body identifies as does not change the overwhelming advantages that person has in competition against natal born women in sports because no matter what, that individual still has a male body,

I loved listening to Ms. Blade read her own book. She is not a professional reader but is passionate, and polite, about her position. It was enjoyable to listen to her for four hours make point after solid point to support her positions, and those positions were supported buy science and plausible argument. And she has a sensible solution too in the last chapter.

Rubbage

This book was terribly written and far right propaganda to fuel further hate/violence. Do not read!
