Dr. Phil Today Friday October 7, 2022, on CBS; Should transgender athletes be able to compete against others who share the gender they identify with, or can they only do so against those who do the same? Is it fair to prohibit transgender women from playing in women’s sports? LGBT+ activists have called the restrictions placed on transgender athletes’ participation in gendered sports “discriminatory.” When she participated in the swimming nationals as a transgender woman, Lia Thomas generated controversy and made headlines.

Dr. Phil talks about what’s right and fair with Olympic swimmer Nancy Hogshead-Makar, a supporter of girls and women in sports and CEO of Champion Women, as well as transgender man and basketball coach Layne Ingram. Then, Lia Thomas’ rival Riley Gaines shares her perspective on how she felt following their race. What does the science say is the big question. Dr. Carole Hooven, a Harvard professor, breaks it down.

Airdate: Friday October 7, 2022 at 3.00pm on CBS.

Dr. Phil McGraw tells compelling stories about real people dealing with a wide range of emotional and behavioural issues, removing the shame and embarrassment that prevents people from seeking help.
