STOP the petition to revoke Caitlyn Jenner's Olympic medals

This petition had 1,917 supporters


Dear Change.org,

I recently came across this appalling petition through your website, asking for signatures for the International Olympic Committee to consider revoking Caitlyn's well earned gold Olympic medals. I would like to petition against this, for it to be removed!
I find this extremely offensive and unsupportive towards the Trans community, regardless to Mrs Bradford's alleged support.

PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION!!

There is what her petition read:

'Dear International Olympic Committee,

It has recently come to light that gold medalist Bruce Jenner is in fact transgender, and therefore, identifies as a woman. We congratulate Ms. Jenner on these new developments and wish her the best. However, this creates somewhat of a problem as Ms. Jenner (as talented as she is) claims that she has always believed herself to be truly female, and therefore, was in violation of committee rules regarding women competing in men's sports and vice versa. Therefore, it is with a heavy heart that we must ask whether or not it is proper that Ms. Jenner should retain her olympic records in light of this, as we must now either claim that Bruce Jenner and Caitlyn Jenner are two entirely different people (which we know is not true), or that Bruce Jenner was, in fact, a woman participating in a men's event. It is only fair to all involved that women receive their credit as champions of the Decathalon and that the men racing Ms. Jenner are not expected to compete with a superior, streamlined being such as herself.

We urge Ms. Jenner to support the transgender community by giving up the medals earned by competing against the wrong gender.

Thank you, and congratulations to Ms. Jenner for her courage!
