In Connecticut, similar litigation is pending. A group of cisgender students have sued, challenging the state’s interscholastic athletic conference policy that lets transgender students participate in school sports. They argue that the cisgender girls would never be able to beat the transgender girls they compete against. Meanwhile, in February, Chelsea Mitchell, one of the cisgender girls whose family filed suit, beat Terry Miller
, one of the trans athletes the suit claims has an unfair advantage in the sport. According to the ACLU, the judge in this case has asked all parties — including lawyers for the cisgender plaintiffs — to avoid referring to the trans girls as “males.” In response, the cisgender plaintiffs in the lawsuit asked for a new judge, a request that is currently being considered.
