Minnesota: Christina Ginther, a nearly 6-foot tall male who identifies as a woman and is a black-belt in karate, won a discrimination lawsuit and an award for $20,000 after being cut from a women’s football team based on safety issues. The judgement was based on the Minnesota Human Rights Act, which prohibits discrimination by businesses based on sexual orientation. The ruling makes women-only teams and groups potentially ‘discriminatory.’

Christina Ginther, a biological man who identifies as a woman, won a discrimination lawsuit this week after being rejected from playing on an all-women’s Minnesota football team due to safety concerns.

Ginther, who’s nearly 6 feet tall and a second-degree black belt in karate, was awarded a total of $20,000 with the legal win: $10,000 in punitive damages and $10,000 for emotional distress.

The 46-year-old claims he was initially welcomed by the Minnesota Vixen football team, which was then part of the Independent Women’s Football League (IWFL), during pre-tryout practices in 2016. But when team owner Laura Brown learned that Ginther was actually a biological male, she informed Ginther that biological men were barred from playing in the league due to safety concerns.

An attorney for the team, Greg Van Gompel, said Brown instead offered Ginther a role assisting the coach or helping the team keep stats during their games. He further explained that Brown was bound by IWFL policy: “It says, ‘A player may not play in the IWFL, unless they are now, and always have been, legally and medically a female, as determined by their birth certificate and driver’s license,'” said Van Gompel, according to MPR News.

Ginther refused the offer from Brown, saying he “felt violated” from the rejection.
