    Following a ruling by the sport’s governing body, all females invited to official competitions will be sharing accommodation with males of any age say they are female.

    British Gymnastics have forbidden also coaches from telling parents their daughter is sharing a room with a male who has declared himself as female. The body has a membership of more than 350 000 – representing mostly under 16s.

    The sports body has threatened anyone  who is “unhappy” with the new ruling. Those who do not wish to have their daughters share accomodation with males, must make their own “alternative arrangements”.

    It has not been ruled out that males who identify as females could in future even be sharing showers with female gymnasts.

    The Daily Mail reported that there has been a furious backlash from parents, bashing the organisation’s transgender policy. The say that the new policy puts their daughters’ safety at risk. The policy is being enforced after pressure from transgender campaigners.

    In a further ruling, males of all ages who identify as female will be allowed to participate in female-only competitions. “Prepubescent boys who identify as girls can compete in any female category,” the news outlet reported.

    Post-puberty male gymnasts who identify as female will be taking part in women’s competitive events, “if comply with International Olympic Committee standards”. According to new IOC rules for participation in female sporting competitions, transgenders are required to have lived in their “declared gender” for a minimum of four years.

    Hormone treatment which suppresses testosterone to a specified IOC level must be taken for 12 months before and throughout the competition. Since 2016 the IOC has allowed male-to-female athletes to compete if their testosterone levels remain below a certain level for a year, because the hormone increases muscle mass, strength and the capacity of the blood to carry oxygen.

    “I don’t think you can deny that young boys that have gone through puberty have certain advantages that women will not ever get,” Paula Radcliffe, who holds the women’s world record in the marathon, told the BBC recently.

    Boys have he advantage of bigger bones, muscles and greater heart capacity from puberty, and no gender switch will change that.

    The patently unfair participation of males in female sport was exacerbated by Maria Miller. In 2017, as chair of the women and equalities committee, Miller produced a report on transgender rights in which she recommended that changing gender should be through a process of “self-declaration” rather than after consultation with a doctor.

    Miller received support from UK Lib Dem MP Layla Moran arguing she could tell what someone’s sex is, not by their physical body, but by “looking in their soul”.

    It was revealed this month that Downview prison in south London will be the first in Europe to have a unit for trans prisoners, after “significant concern” among the female prisoners about the sudden influx of male-bodied inmates.

    Almost two thirds of the British public have backed criticism of former tennis star Martina Navratilova’s view that men who say they are women should not be allowed to compete against women in sports.

    In a poll of more than 2 000 adults, it was revealed that that 63 percent agreed with the international tennis champion, who believe that men hold an “unfair physical advantage”. According to the ComRes poll, only twelve percent disagreed with Navratilova, while 25 percent said they were undecided.

    The poll also questioned respondents on other issues relating to transgenderism.

    While gender ideology groups have been pressuring organisations to introduce gender-neutral toilets and facilities everywhere, a majority of 52 percent of women say they are unhappy about sharing toilets in restaurants.

    Moreover, there is widespread fear of publicly stating views on transgender ideology due to being smeared as a “bigot”.
