In his first week in office, President Joe Biden has signed countless executive orders, including one order that may impact sports.

Biden's executive order "Preventing and Combating Discrimination on the Basis of Gender Identity or Sexual Orientation” says “children should be able to learn without worrying about whether they will be denied access to the restroom, the locker room, or school sports.”

How should transgender athletes compete? Voting has closed. Here are the results:

  • 87% voted for sex assigned at birth
  • 13% voted for sex they identify with
