Kye Allums is on the women’s basketball team at the George Washington University, and is on a basketball scholarship. Kye Allums risked his scholarship when he announced that he is a Trans man. Kye Allums Allowed to Stay on the Team Kye Allums has been allowed to stay on the women’s basketball team since he has not undertaken any hormone treatments yet. NYT states that the NCAA has decided to amend its policies to include transgender athletes. If Kye Allums is shifted to the men’s team, he will lose his scholarship, since there is not any scholarship available for the men’s basketball team. He also may not be good enough to make the men’s team. Kye Allums will be playing for women’s basketball because physically he was born a female. The National Center on Lesbian Rights and the Women's Sports Foundation advised that all transgender athletes should be allowed to participate so long as any hormone therapy is consistent with policies regarding banned medications. Allums will not be taking any testosterone treatments while competing in basketball. Very Strange Support Kye Allums on the other hand is happy and excited about the support that he has received from people around the world. He said he has received several messages from even unknown senders who have appreciated his bravery. Opposites View Points Sex change operations and surgeries, or hormonal treatments for changing the sex are very rare. Anyone who undergoes a sex change operation usually does not let people know about the same. This is also true for liposuction surgeries. People, who claim to have lost weight in no time, have usually undertaken liposuction surgeries for the removal of their fat. These people misuse the privilege of being rich and famous and undertake liposuction just to look good. Supporters say there is nothing wrong with that. Critics say these kinds of face lifts or liposuction surgeries gain a bad reputation due to this kind of misuse by the rich and famous.
