Transgender women banned from women’s chess events

The International Chess Federation (FIDE) says it is temporarily banning transgender women from competing in its women’s events.

The FIDE said individual cases would require “further analysis” and that a decision could take up to two years.

The move has been criticised by some players and enthusiasts.


Maybe they think transgender players might have unfairly strong fingers?
